❓ Which DTB do I use?

Isn’t the tx3 mini a S905W device if so gxl_p281_1g should be correct and you may need to create a net remote file. check CoreELEC 9.0.x Remote files

Today i tried the gxl_p212 for the tanix tx3 mini 2nd edition (without the clock in front)
remote doesnt work :slight_smile:
will try to create a net remote file… (dont know how will try)

Remote requires manual configuration if Tanix have upgraded it.

I hope you used the gxl_p281_1g
That Tx3 Mini has a different cheap old design remote control that was used in the old MXQ S805 ND T95N boxes.
Try the T95N

thank you will try out and report

Hi,
I was looking for a DTB for the Magicsee N6 Max with the Rockchip 3399 XPU, 4 g DDR4 Ram and 1 g ethernet.
Excited about the idea of this project.

Unfortunately you are out of luck, because CoreELEC only supports Amlogic based devices.
AFAIK LibreELEC has a working Rockchip image, which you could try.

Shoot. I liked the looks of this fork. Thanks for the answer.

Does anyone have any experience with a TV box called R-Box Pro? Its another S912 w/3gb RAM & Gigabit Ethernet. It looks very very similar to the H96 Pro & H96 Pro + (it appears identical other than the brand name), the only difference I can see is in the IR remote. Could I get by with using the H96 DTB? If so, which one? -it looks like there is a dtb for the H96 Pro and H96 Pro + but I can’t see any hardware differences between the two. Has anyone been successful with CoreElec on this box?

I have a H96 Pro 3/16 and I think it’s identical with R-BOX Pro (different case only).
I did flash R-BOX Pro android image on it without any problem.
H96 Pro Plus has another WiFi chip built-in.
CE works on it with gxm_q201_3g.dtb
(I used gxm_q200_3g.dtb at the beginning but had an issue and the dtb change solved it)
Also had issue running CE from sd but moved CE to pen drive solved it.

hi there, i got a phicomm t1 box with amlogic s912/2G/16G/100M/android 7.12, cat /proc/device-tree/amlogic-dt-id returned gxm_q201_2g.
i tried all the device tree included but none was workable, coreelec just doesn’t boot. can anyone advice?
i leave the PCB photos on https://imgur.com/a/RL492Yw

If the (Android) boot loader on your box is locked, there is no way to install CE.

Another member tried but failed back in Feb Sx05RE: Retro Emulation Kodi Addon for CoreELEC, released for testing

There seems to be an unofficial version of CE running on PhiCom devices (distributed in a Chinese forum).
Unfortunately the developer didn’t contact us until now to officially add support, so we can’t help you with this problem.

since i succeed to make libreelec/kernel5.x to boot on recent build, i’d like to know the different between ce and le, is kernel the big deal?

@kostaman
yes, i read his posts, he encountered the same thing:frowning_face:

i see. i’m going to do some searching and try to contact that guy.

Not sure about the Kernel differences, but CE supports the latest Amlogic chips where LE does not. If you read about it there’s some politics involved with codec support and the mainline kernel. LE chose not to do anything outside of the mainline kernel and that’s why LE is not supporting the newest Amlogic chips.

I went with Amlogic and CE because the platform has good value. LE can run on more powerful platforms like Intel, but those platforms are relatively expensive. The Odroid-N2 is comparable to an entry level Intel SBC from what I’ve read. Unlike an Intel platform the N2 is inexpensive.

ok, thanks for the information :slightly_smiling_face: .

I have a few Beelink MINIMXIII-II, they use Amlogic SOC S905x, 2G (2G/16G internal memory), 100 Mbps ethernet. Which I have been running the last years with Libreelec. I’ve decided to change to Coreelec, since I was so happy with it on another planform(N2).

However when I flashed the Beelink MiniMXIII-II (S905x) with Coreelec the remote stopped working. I copied the gxl_p212_2g.dtb to the root of the sd-card folder and renamed it to dtb.img according to the install guide. This leads me to believe that the gxl_p212_2g.dtb file are not fully compatible with Beelink MiniMXIII-II(905x!), as I remember this was also an issue back in the early libreelec days if the wrong dtb file was used. I do not want to mess around with custom remote config files, that needs to be re-uploaded if the box is reset etc in the future.

Any advice on how I can fix this in the proper manner?

Please read this topic: How to configure IR remote control

My box respon gxl_p212_2g
I have use all dtb file in device tree folder with gxl_p212 and renamed it dtb.img… but still stuck on logo…

I have try LC and CE, still stuck…

My box is fiberhome hg680p
Use sd card and from android, use reboot update

Please help
