    minix team dont support but I give path to openelec for minix amalogic.
    only need your wifi chip and kernel config for minix. may be modifiy for s812 and s802 for minix.
    all based same. s806 android device use s812 chip
    first find to your android kernel config. that identifiy used all chip for minix x8-h-plus
    cat /proc/config.gz > /sdcard/config.gz
    chmod 777 /sdcard/config.gz
    unpack config.gz
    later merge your config to armlinux config. add your driver for kernel source. wifi binary fw remote conf. boolader.img logo.img recıvery.img etc. later compile new openelec.
    may be minix team support this for dualboot or sd boot.

    Kerber also has a deposit GIT :

    Great guide taki. Now all we need is someone experienced in roms to make a Minix OpenELEC rom to test. Unfortunately knowledge on how to create/modify/compile roms is limited to a very few. I am new to android and don't have a clue where to start.

    Ditto, great to see some traction in this space, really hope a working rom for the X8H Plus can be created by those with the knowledge & skills, sadly I have neither :(...

    surkovalex can you support minix X8-H plus your git repo. I try to compile s806-812 but ../out.img not found and compilation terminated. I think that x8-h plus like your device s806-812. minix board has different 1000 mbit lan and ap 6330 wifi chip.

    Hi taki, can you try to explain a little bit better on this as not very sure?
    If flashed via recovery is openelec working?
    Is it possible to boot openelec from sd card - (dualboot) - keeping the android system as it is?

    surkovalex Active Member

    minix don't have dualboot, wetek support dualboot.
    @taki which version you use, v1 or v2 ?

    For remote contorl config. Need copy from /etc/remote.conf to /storage/.config/remote.conf and edit him.
    After edit you can test, exec command remotecfg /storage/.config/remote.conf
    Code button can be found here https://github.com/codesnake/amremote/blob/master/keydefine.h

    for tevii s660 support
    v1 - http://amlinux.ru/image/20150115_ke....arm-devel-20150119234535-r20360-g2bbc99b.zip
    v2 - http://amlinux.ru/image/20150115_ke....arm-devel-20150119235023-r20360-g2bbc99b.zip

    Unpack onto sdcard and flash via recovery
