    Can you elaborate on this please, there is a serious lack of information to work on. I'm certainly interested in getting Krypton running on the X8-H Plus, it's the main reason I'm waiting for HardwareGuru's Lollipop build.

    Multiboot minix
    1. Download boot.scr (from the directory the link
    2. To write an image LE.
    3. Create the first section of the media directory "boot"
    4. Copy the newly created directory "boot script boot.src" (/boot/boot.src)

    Request to all users of version Minix Neo X8H who have the console UART. Check this instructions on how to activate the multi-boot on Minix Neo X8H

    Shame, but this is no good to me as things stand. WiFi is essential, the Minix is in my bedroom and the router is in the living room.

    You can fix it with a PLC appliance, although you should spend some of money in it :)

    This tropic is really (y)

    I have some small question, for my understanding, before I will break my minix.

    First I take out my 32gb SD card, and I put on the SD card the file boot.scr in the map /boot/boot.src .

    I place back the SD card in the minix and use the toothpick to activate the multi-boot.

    What version of LibreELEC do I need to download for my minix 8 H plus and do I need to place LibreELEC on my SD card? in a special directory?

    Will the LAN works okay?

    It is not working for me at all.

    What I did:

    I put boot.scr on my SD card in the directory /boot/boot.src
    I also put the zip file LibreELEC-S812.LAN1000.arm-8.0.0-update.zip in the root of the SD card

    I shutdown the minix and reboot it with hold the toothpick in the reset.

    After a while I am getting this screen:


    I don't see any multi-boot.
    When I reboot system now it starts in normal stage and also no multi-boot option to select.

    What do I wrong?

    Thanks for help.

    i believe the boot.scr is for multi boot when you have used that tool to burn the img file the other one that .gz

    your file is used to update throught recovery of you already had a older version previously installed. you need the other zip file and then boot to that same screen and choose EXT then pick your update . if there is a option to pick usb or sd pick the one your using then you will have this installed on INTERNAL you wont have multi boot thats entirely a different process

    Your boot.scr only change and save u-boot environments. insert to sdcard (openelec, libreelec etc) minix boot from sdcard. Discard sdcard boot from nand ( android)
    If you want to know boot.scr you can look with text editor.
    Real dualboot only works on wetek. Because wetek uboot different than all other amlogic. Minix can be add uboot source but not want to do. Because only support android (only kitkat :) )

    I flashed de kodi17.Update version and it worked like a charm. I noticed that screen resolution it's only at 720p.
    Is it possible to select 1080p?
    Does YouTube videos run at full HD?

    Thanks Mick, works well, only minor issue I have is the watched /not watched icons don't work. If this could be fixed that would be great. Thanks for the image.
