Please consider this thread as it is : a simple and collective way to share knowledge and progress on the GS-King X device and its CoreELEC support. This means you should respect any user participating to the discussions and accept the fact that you may have a different view and/or opinions than others.
Please do avoid repeatedly asking for the same thing again and again… If you are willing to develop and share something, just do it. If you just need to complain, just don’t.
The GS-King X is now available for sale : it’s a TV+NAS box from Bee-link, based on the S922X soc, as is the GT-King. The main differences are:
- a great dac (ESS sabre ES9018) in dual mono and good opamp for audio (with 3 quality outputs)
- 2 3’5" bays for internal storage, connected with USB3 internally
- an aluminium case with active cooling
I cannot comment on the android (non-ATV) experience, but the GT-King is performing really great when running CoreELEC, I have virtually no issue with 9.2.2 !
This topic aims at gathering information about CoreELEC support/use.
Please share your question and your information on this box here.
- working : yes, internal HDD detected too, use the revA gtking DTB for now, I’m using CoreELEC-9.2.3-ng
- builds: check the nightlies to get last updates and give feedback to the developers
- image name : Amlogic-ng Generic image
How to switch to CoreELEC
Download the 9.2.3 ‘ng’ image, flash it on a SD-card with Rufus (or any other software you are comfortable with). Then copy the DTB file with GT king revA name from the device_tree into the root folder of the SD-card afterwards ; simply rename it to dtb.img.
Then, with the box powered-off and the cable unplugged, put the SD-card, use a toothpick to push an internal switch (there is a small hole in the bottom of the chassis, next to the output ports). When it clicks, put the cable power and wait until the CoreELEC screen appears.
Let me know if this helps or if you have another issue.
