* jan58, and maybe it’s the case in the sd card, I’m launching it on a flash drive, I’ll say for sure that the first versions (as I understand it a week ago just done somewhere) on sd cards do not work, only a flash drive, I don’t know the latest versions, they update something every day

Rep: (246)
* lolas34 Can I link to the working version? As I understand it, you just need a quick flash drive?

Rep: (9)
I have a version from 07.22 from a flash drive did not want to start, today I downloaded the latest from 07.24 and tried to put on microSD. Now works fine.

* Roccuyanun, I have on a flash drive (not an sd card) this version of CoreELEC-Amlogic-ng.arm-9.1-nightly_20190722-Generic.img.gz, it’s located in button (Nightly) should be somewhere in the archive already, I don’t know what CoreELEC-Amlogic- means ng .arm-9.1-nightly (eat without ng ) In this version everything works both wifi and bluetooth, the video rotates 4k HDR perfectly (everything else worked in the previous ones), but I don’t know about sd cards, I’m sure that the release will be released soon (not a nightly build, I just don’t know what else can I fix and add, and so everything is super)

A toothpick is not necessary, from the market you put the terminal emulator and in it the reboot update command

And so it happened, thanks! It’s strange that it didn’t start through a toothpick ...

Rep: (9)
Manual (taken from herehttps: //discourse.core...o-install-coreelec/677) to create a flash drive / microSD with CoreElec:
1. Download the last nightie withhttps://relkai.coreelec.orgthe name must contain ng and Generic.
2. Unpack the archive and create a bootable USB flash drive using Rufus, take it herehttps://rufus.ie
3. After successful completion, go to the created flash drive by any file manager and copy the file containing the name S905X2_4g_1gbit to the root of the flash drive from the device_trees folder
4. Rename it to dtb.img
5. We insert the USB flash drive into the box and here as you like more, either we reboot with the inserted toothpick, or from the market we put any terminal emulator and in it we give the reboot update command
6. If the download does not occur, then try the same thing on another flash drive.
P.S. I ask you not to kick much, I write the manual for the first time)

Yes, even a memory car

I'm happy for you. Yes, the korelek does not allow you to go far from the code, if not red-eyed. But with a sharpened crust, amlodzheg becomes a shield. And if you are not in the topic, then you don’t need to ... and in the case of x96mah - the HD pastern appears and the box becomes a full-fledged media box, and not a surfing tablet ...

Lolas34 @ 07.25.19, 9:30 p.m.*
In general, amcodec is still a great option for our console

Well, the fact is that amlodzhik corrected h264 in 9k or something like that and the media codec became excellent. So right here is the difference between amcodecs in korelles or media codecs in 9ke is not special. And it’s hard for Amco codec to turn h264 4k a hundred mb / s - the code drops. What does not happen in the media codec at 9k. But these are all worms, the HD is driving! :)

* kigba but here the flow start speed, for example, at 9ke (on the media codec) and the launch speed in coreelec (amcodec) is very different, in favor of the second, while in coreelec (amcodec) there are no friezes at startup (the picture goes perfectly when zapx, without initial twitches ), channel switching is generally gorgeous, it's more comfortable flipping channels (switching alternately) again comfortable, though I’m already unaccustomed to it. This is not a contradiction to your words above, I'm just glad that coreelec appeared, a really cool thing!

Moreover, there is a difference in the blurring of the picture, it was on 9ke (on the media codec) that a small soap appeared (on 8 there wasn’t), in coreelec (amcodec) the image is clearer

Now I’m thinking about buying an expensive sd card (fast), it’s a pity that they sell at least 16GB now, I'm talking about Samsung evo, for coreelec and 4GB it would be enough, but 8GB is for the eyes, or I don’t understand something and coreelec only works after loading in RAM?

* lolas34,
I tried to throw a config, the clock on the console worked, there is no native remote control.

Rep: (5)
* Izum4ik, I’m not sure, but the point is that there is no line in the native console:

factory_code = 0x10000001 (this is an example of a working config for libreelec, not for our console)

On this console, reading a memory card is several times slower than flash drives. A usb3 card reader can be used or a flash drive is fast.

I tried coreelec. I did not earn hdmi cec, a clock and a native remote. Installed a usb flash drive 2.0. I realized that you need a quick flash drive version 3.0 because when scrolling through movies to the elementum or movie trend, posters do not have time to load. In a simple system, it consumes 320mb of memory, if the temperature sensor displays correctly then it is 53 degrees, three cores in idle sleep, one lightly loaded. By default, the frame rate is 59.94. The autofreight works perfectly, the smoothness of 4k videos on YouTube is higher than in the same kodi on android, there are no frames and drops, turned on debugging and looked at statistics. The image is also juicy and clear, although it is excellent on android. Amcodek works in the system, it turns everything with a bang. Deinterlacing works as it should. Forward multichannel sound also works. Torrents online turns the same without problems. If in the future the system can be put on internal memory, then there will generally be fire. Here are brief observations.

After this firmware, it buzzed! Buratino Karlovich, this firmware is suitable for our console ......... Generic.img.gz (for S905X2 and others), after installing it on a USB flash drive, the file will contain S905X2_4g_1gbit in the folder, we will drop it into the root and rename it to dtb.img, after that the bootable USB flash drive is ready (we reboot the prefix with a toothpick) and it’s ready (it’s worth clarifying to you!, the latest version works on sd cards, before that it worked only from a flash drive, I stuck it in USB3)
Closing contacts, nothing happens. Is everything in the trash?
