    Any hints on accessing Android internal storage from Linux?
    I mean, is there a Linux device mapping for it?

        Image update Armbian S812_3.10.107_20171124.
        Fixed bug with start Armbian from SD cards (check run with all the dtb files in them is different).
        You can use 720p and 1080p (via the file "/boot/hdmi.sh").
        Updated packages to current versions.

                In the LE using an outdated version multi-download. It can only run LE. Activate your universal multiboot (using the image of Armbian).

                  balbes thank you so much for your work

                  I'm trying to install armbian in a matricom gbox q2, which is a s812 2gb ram with a mali-450

                  1) Downloaded this image: Armbian_5.41_S812_Debian_stretch_3.10.108_server_2 0180402
                  2) Burned to an sdcard
                  3) Booted box with reset button
                  4) When it boots, there an initial screen with lots of artifacts, then video signal goes down and never comes back after waiting a few minutes.

                  I tried with a bunch of dtb without success.

                  I've sucessfully booted a libreelec image from the community (LibreELEC-S8X2.arm-8.2.3-M8S-PLUS). So I though of opening this image to copy the dtb.img inside it and try with it, but nothing again.

                  Any ideas? Thanks

                      hi balbes, it's 8.2.3

                      I was also able to extract 8 dts files the boot.img belonging to the official android firmware for this box.

                        Files from this LE version is not suitable for Armbian. Send me dts files and if so , output from the UART console, which describes which dtb is used from these 8 options.

                          This is the dts for the file extracted from the LE image https://pastebin.com/jhSVA2D6

                          For the others, I would need to confirm which is actually being loaded. I'm not entirely sure how to do it, I'll do some research.

                              Has anyone managed to get HDMI CEC working on any of these images?

                                Hello. I own this tv box https://www.banggood.com/MXIII-4K-2G...-p-952057.html (K200 version). The problem is that i cannot make it boot ambian. There is a screen flickering and then the monitor deactivates and nothing for half an hour or so. Any idea?
