Updating M8S PRO+ S905X or not - beginner questions

hmm booted, and then theres a splash screen saying
Addon Migration running … please wait

How long will this last?

Its running 20 min plus currently…

any help? wait or is there something wrong?

A similar situation happened to me where some package failed to download. There are few similar situations mentioned 8.95.5 release thread.

I would probably just reboot via SSH if it doesn’t seem to go further otherwise.

ok cut the power and started the box again.

kodi started with my old choosen skin AEON NOX and seems to work.

a notification popped up which says COREELEC update available.
how to handle this information?

Which version are you on now? 8.95.5 is the newest, maybe you had an old update from previously which you hadn’t installed.

its currently

how to get it easy updated?

Probably your update notification is for 8.95.5 which is the latest version. I would just reboot again and let it install. Hopefully you won’t get stuck at the addon migration process screen again. Keeping fingers crossed.

thanks to you all for your help.

did a reboot and update is done.

thanks so far.
all libs and settings seems also to be installed from the backup which i have stopped with a power cut off as well.

so saturday evening is secured :slight_smile:


my box updated to 8.95.6b and now the remote is not working correct.

how can i fix that? i downloaded your files and checked the sd card but i cant find any dir on the sd card to copy the files from your link.

Can you please help me?

I had the same probelm, you need to read the release notes

CoreELEC 8.95.6

CoreELEC 8.95.6 is now available and can be downloaded from our GitHub page here.



  • enable PVR archive features only on supported channels
  • re-enabled slide animations by default on Estuary theme
  • unified update images *
  • updated default IR keymaps **
  • updated mecool/wetek dvb driver


  • added option to disable auto bit depth and colourspace switching
  • re-added support for auto bit depth and colourspace switching


  • We have made significant changes to the CoreELEC buildroot with this release and as such if you are
    using CoreELEC on Odroid C2, LePotato or Khadas VIM1 you should update your installation with the
    S905 tar or if you are using the Khadas VIM2 you should use the S912 tar.

** Following these changes we have had to remove out of the box support for the following IR remotes,
A95X, MeCool, MINIX.

If you are using a device with one of the above IR remotes you can re-enable support by executing
the corresponding command below via SSH and rebooting.

echo "meson-ir * a95x" > /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg
echo "meson-ir * mecool" > /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg
echo "meson-ir * minix_neo" > /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg

That means for me, connecting via ssh and use this command:

echo “meson-ir * mecool” > /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg


nothing else?

Yes, then reboot. it worked for me

how to ssh on theb ox.

is it root / coreelec?

yes, it is root coreelec

ssh -l root

root@’s password:

Permission denied, please try again.

root@’s password:

I don’t know how you used it.

I open putty, my settings are there, ie ip address ( I can’t remember how)

then connect, a terminal window opens, I log in as root, it then asks for a password.

I would send a screenshot but I don’t know how to

found this here

coreelec is not working as pass

If you updated to CoreELEC over a LibreELEC install at some point in the past on that device the password might still be “libreeelec” since the update process does not change passwords.

have you gone from a libreelec build to coreelec? or a clean install of coreelec

try libreelec


now i cant enter anything when ssh over TERMINAL with my mac:

ssh -l root

root@ Permission denied (publickey,keyboard-interactive).

any . idea?

Is ssh turned on in the settings?
