S912 (3GB RAM 32GB ROM) which download file to use

Hi, I can see thet latest 9.0.0 build offers “unified S905/S912 image”

Which file should I use from these listed on:

  • CoreELEC-Amlogic.arm-9.0.0-Generic.img.gz
  • CoreELEC-Amlogic.arm-9.0.0-KVIM.img.gz
  • CoreELEC-Amlogic.arm-9.0.0-KVIM2.img.gz
  • CoreELEC-Amlogic.arm-9.0.0-LePotato.img.gz
  • CoreELEC-Amlogic.arm-9.0.0-Odroid_C2.img.gz
  • CoreELEC-Amlogic.arm-9.0.0.tar

Download Page “https://coreelec.org/#download” offers S912 option, but “RAM/Variant” menu is not available. When selecting “Download”, a file named “CoreELEC-Amlogic.arm-9.0.0-Generic.img.gz” starts to download.

Which one is the right one for S912 device (3GB RAM 32GB ROM), is it “CoreELEC-Amlogic.arm-9.0.0-Generic.img.gz”?

Thank you for help!


Yes, it’s the generic image, CoreELEC-Amlogic.arm-9.0.0-Generic.img.gz.
Other images are for SBCs, the tar is for updating an existing installation.

Is this box has a name?

Ooops, I downloaded the stable 9.0.0 tar & installed the same one to my H96 Pro S912, & my Beelink S905

No problems with either

Why didn’t you just pick this device from the download helper?
It also shows the dtb, which needs to be copied to the root of your sd card.

Uff, now I see it, tnx bro!

I had an issue with HDMI output constantly resetting on 8.99.2 after several hours of usage. Is this still an issue?

It was never an issue. It’s likely a problem with your setup.
HDMI cable most likely.

Ohh…I see. Did not face this issue on older LibreELEC editions, has to be something woth this 4:2:0, 4:4:4 you experts explain.

Could you maybe recommend a good cable, or better, a webshop url where we can purchase the cable.

You are great helping me instantly!


Monoprice Premium High Speed HDMI cables.
AmazonBasics High Speed cables are also considered good.

Thank you, mr.Coolest! :wink:
Are you sure Premium Class HDMI cable would work,
this table: https://images.idgesg.net/images/article/2018/02/formatdataratetable-100750471-orig.jpg
indicates Premium Class supports up to UHD 4K/48-60p, 17,82Gbps, but only 8 Bit Color Depth
10 and 12 Color Depth are reserved for Ultra Class Speed HDMI Cables…

Anything over 18Gbps is out of HDMI 2.0 spec.
4K@50/60Hz is done by 4:2:0 or 4:2:2 chroma for all bit depths, including 10 and 12 bits.

No cable is a guarantee, but if you want the best chance for things to work with as few issues as possible, good quality HDMI cables is a must. Also, both the Monoprice and AmazonBasics cables are pretty affordable.
