after the nice help from @rednas74 and @Compent and some other - politely called “off topic” comments from “well respected” members I went ahead 3 days ago took 23€ and ordered myself a X96 Max Plus with x905x3 with 2GB of ram and 16GB flash.
Guess what, my order arrived already
I’m now wondering if there is any real benefit of installing CoreELEC in the internal flash (overwriting android) or if I should have the same experience running CE from a micro sd card (a2 rated) or a usb stick.
In theory the internal flash could have higher read speeds - but that’s the theory.
And does it actually matter to much where CE is booted from? It should be small enough to load the whole system into ram when booting - does this happen like this or are they permanent readings (and even writings?) from the root file system necessary?
If you have valuable feedback for this thread I’m happy to read your post!
