This topic as been created to X96Air_P2 version but some users reported this guide works on P3 version too - Read here
Maybe can work in other Pxxx version, IDK…
As far as I know, there are three Options for X96 Air:
- 2GB+16GB+2.4G Wi-Fi+LNA 100 M (No Bluetooth)
- 4GB+32GB+2.4&5.8G Dual Wi-Fi+BT4.1+LNA 1000 M
- 4GB+64GB+2.4&5.8G Dual Wi-Fi+BT4.1+LNA 1000 M
Mine is 4GB+32GB+2.4&5.8G Dual Wi-Fi+BT4.1+LNA 1000 M, with original Android firmware: X96Air_P2_20191017-1917
I decide to create this topic to help other users to general config.
Just compiled all information I get in this forum, so all the credits go to CoreElec team and other members of this forum.

How to configure remote? (My remote it’s the same of the picture)
There are two ways to configure remote control: meson-ir and amremote (See the difference between them here!)
Note: Most of users, inclued me, report amremote works better its more responsive.
here: CoreELEC 9.0.x Remote files
The files: X92_remote.zip (1.9 KB)
[My Config: remote.conf (1.4 KB)]
Alternative configurations: Krypton remote.zip (2.5 KB) (Thanks to @cycle8898 and @revolution6)
The remote don’t turn on box.
> If you own an Amlogic device that have issues with wake-up features like IR remote wake-up, CEC or WOL wake-up then you can use this tool to fix those issues.
You need to inject BL301
Read here how to and after that, read here to config.ini
