Thanks for your continued efforts and wish you success !
much appreciated. The x8h+ is still a very good box if you can get everything working in libreelec
doesn't boot on sd for a X8H so it may boot for X8Hplus
if it boot test wifi
@datrh just tried both USB and SD card starts the resizing partition as it should on first boot on either
then reboots as it should but on both USB or SD card it just hangs on the LibreELEC boot logo screen
its been like that for 10 or so minutes and won't go any further
I just tried it as well and confirm what mark2 as said.
It first boots from SD card, does the partition resize, then reboots and hangs on the LIBREELEC logo, which is not far from a complete boot.
You must be very close to cracking this one, booting from SD is so much quicker!!
something with kodi... => not really
something with the framebuffer.. => trying to figure out what (kodi-mali driver dunno if kodi 17.4 gonna runs with old linux)
have integrated old wifi drivers with latest linux 3.10.xx release.
will test first on x8h.
release date i guess this week-end
it boots, wifi ok on the X8H
will post it this evening

SUCCESS at LAST !!!
Well done...you're never give up attitude has paid off.
I have tested both 2.4GHz and 5 GHz wifi with no problems at all....for more than 30 minutes.
I have streamed from the internet and also from my home network...ALL good !!
Now if only you can get it to boot from SD card...it will be PERFECT !!!
Thanks for your hard work.
ah dawn the SD thing.. seems that i've forget the boot.scr
can you try with the one you're talking about in http://www.minixforum.com/threads/openelec-minix-x8-h-plus.3342/page-95#post-139832
Yes...already did this with SD card.... but it does not boot.
try to put the boot.scr on the SD without a folder and also overwrite aml_autoscript and s805_autoscript by those from :
"1. Download LibreELEC image - LibreELEC-S812.Minix.arm-17.3.img.gz
the fact that it boot or not from SD is related to these 2 scripts (boot.scr is the binary version of one of those scripts)
Yes, did all the above...but still get "file corruption" message.
On USB it's working good.... and wifi continues to be stable.
I also tried the same as @senzalice and every other way possible
but @datrh you have got further with this than any other dev so congrats on your hard work
@senzalice and @mark2 :
without both of you testing all the stuff, we would never have a build with a working wifi driver.
to resume :
libreelec with :
a lot of extra drivers (dvb,....)
bugs to solve :
boot from SD(*)
the "classic" shutdown bug (workaround is to use the "suspend" mode)
to have a chance to figure out what's working wrong with the SD boot, i need a link of a working SD build
edit : you may try one of those s805_autoscript. just download (not the ".txt" one) and copy on the SD.
source : https://github.com/150balbes/Amlogic_s905/tree/master/script/S805/LIBREELEC
worst case : it will not boot.
i would try in reverse order : from the latest to the oldest.
i can't really test the boot SD because with a X8-H, i never had a SD boot trouble (only with early demetris builds)
This is the link to an image that boots from SD card. I also used the boot.scr and put it in a "boot" folder on SD card
Sorry...but i'm a bit lost navigating trying to see what "s805_autoscript" to use....very confusing.
Some more good news:
I also have another S812 box, it's an OTT M8S.AP6330.201509251800 (KitKat 4.4.2) 2Gb/8Gb
I'm happy to say that your current build ( http://www.mediafire.com/file/tz8wejy3h8mgl01/LibreELEC-X8-H_Plus.arm-8.2-kodi_17.4.img.gz ) also works on this box with wifi - USB only (SD does not boot)
ok i will try to be understandable. will reply later
try in this order :
just download and copy it on the root of the SD card (replacing the existing one)
does it format the SD card?meaning does the first part of the process works?
@modo : maybe we may start a new thread of split this one starting from http://www.minixforum.com/threads/openelec-minix-x8-h-plus.3342/page-97#post-141068 with title libreelec - X8H-Plus
what do you thing?
I have just tried the first one - it comes up with File Corruption message and stops....it does NOT format SD card.
However, just a while ago before doing the above, I put this image (from before) on SD which boots (LibreELEC-S812.Minix.arm-17.3.img.gz (https://yadi.sk/d/J9pHkMo0uHcKU/MinixH8XPlus/20170605)
After booting, I put your current image in the ".update folder) and rebooted
On reboot, it decompressed the image and reformatted the SD card...but when it rebooted again, the File Corruption message came up.
I have some other commitments now and will continue the other s805_autoscript tests tomorrow.
@datrh, do I need to burn a new image everytime I get File Corruption? Or can I just replace s805_autoscript with the next one I want to try?
According to my tests the problem does not comes from s805_autoscript or boot.scr
The ones included in darth latest image just works fine.
The kernel.img and SYSTEM image included in this image (https://yadi.sk/d/J9pHkMo0uHcKU/MinixH8XPlus/20170605 / senzalice "one") boots fine from SDCARD but not the one included in darth ones.
I've tried to copy kernel.img and SYSTEM from darth image to senzalice "one" and it not boot from SDCARD. But kernel.img and SYSTEM from senzalice linked image always boots fine from SDCARD.
My bet is the problem come from ramdisk kernel image and or boot config included in the kernel ramdisk.
BTW, great to ear that wifi works fine, for the shutdown issue... the suspend alternative is good to me.
Keep up the good work darth
