I have been using CoreELEC 9.0.2 I believe, on a Khadas VIM2 Pro in the EMMC for about 6 months. It has been working perfectly.
The other day I noticed it updated Coreelec to 9.2.0 and after this it keeps rebooting. The Khadas logo will pop up for a bit, followed by the new CoreELEC logo with the version number displayed in text in the upper left corner. It will stay on this screen for about 20 seconds then reboots again. I cannot SSH into it nor seem to halt this process.
I wondered if it might be a problem trying to upgrade while running in the EMMC.
Almost at least : latest android image in emmc (05/19).
CoreElecon sd card.
1st boot: usual partitioning then reboot.
Reboot. Display version number on the upper left corner.
Used dtb :kivm2 (not vtv). It’s a vim2pro max.
Just to confirm the problem is with 9.2.0.
I just flashed 9.0.2 on the same SD card. Used same dtb.
CE works : intialized, rebooted fine. Populated my movies from a samba share. Played one.All successfull.
So the problem is with 9.2.0.
This is a problem quite a few people encountered when upgrading to 9.2
The problem was created because the branch of kodi changed and it rendered some Addons incompatible. The solution is to disable all of your addons before upgrading and then renebling them one by one until you identify the problem addons.
A clean fresh install with clean fresh install of all of your addons is the other solution.
Its what worked for me when I encountered these issues upon upgrading to 9.2, and I am running a VIM2. It was the first time I had serious issues with an upgrade and a fresh install was the solution for me. However your experience maybe different because I note that you skipped a few stable upgrades on your way to 9.2 which often complicates matters - it probably was a bootloader bump which caused the problem for you.
If you read back through the 9.2 discussion thread you will see this issue been discussed and the solutions proposed.
Thks 4 the explanation! Although the ins and outs still escape my understanding.
The bootloader bump seems to be a sensitive tip.
My Khadas was sleeping for months and I did not follow the threads regarding CE.
Btw, could you pinpoint a thread regarding the kahdas remote? Any way touse it with CE?
Thanks, trying this but sad to know the its EOL for S905/912
No more updates or security fixes and also it will stop working it add-ons in near future when add-on moves to newer python.
It is not able to play H265 - 8bit audio sometime it works and sometimes it just stops outputting the audio after few mins of playback.
Anyone have this issue ? Also Vim2 does not have Fan control as newer version of vim2 have fan header which is controlled by gpio similar like GS King X
NO Audio output at all on any of the movie files. Tried almost everything to see what is wrong, I will enable debugging to see whats going on in the background and dump it somewhere so someone can look into it.
