    - Remote

    - Led
    - Power Off
    - Sleep
    - StatusBar, NavigationBar
    *fully immersive, just swipe from up for statusbar and from down for navigationbar
    - Ota Updates
    - Etc.

    Whats not working:
    - Webcams (not working with stock camera but works with USB Camera app in playstore and probably more similar apps)
    link to camera app https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...sbcamera&hl=pl
    - Mic (Same as webcams)


    Whats new:
    - 64bit
    - New bootloader compiled from source
    *selinux permisive
    *auto multiboot function:
    (example: -libreelec- just put kernel.img and dtb.img to boot from external devices like sdcard or usb)
    (example: -armbian- to boot linux the bootloader will serch for s905_autoscript on sd or usb)

    - init.d support

    - Youtube 4K60FPS

    - New kernel compiled from source

    - Firmware build with sdk

    - SystemUI Tuner

    NavigationBar will be disable by default becose some apps are not compatible and dont scale properly,
    to enable it just remove # in build.prop from #qemu.hw.mainkeys=0

    As Android Oreo for S905/S905x is quite new there may be some bags.
    I will also make Oreo for first generation of Mini M8S with S905 procesor.
    What bugs? I cant find all bugs by myself so, if there is a bug please report and i will try to fix it for future versions.
    Firmware is Rooted.
    Also i changed the default UI resolution to 720p for performance.
    If you wish to have UI in 1080p you need to change /vendor/mesondisplay.cfg and also /system/build.prop lcd.density to 240. Later will add switch to change ui resolution in the firmware. And also ota updates.

                    Installed it on my X9 box, same as the Mini M8S 2. Burning it to my box, using the provided burn tool in your zip worked perfectly, took a little over 5.5 minutes to burn. Connected it to my TV, but now it is hung up in the loading screen, 4 colored circles going round and round. Will wait for a few more minutes and try again........

                    Edit. Pulled the power plug and plugged it back in, working now.......... Will set it up and post a video............. thanks.

                    Edit 2: All I can say is "WOW", it is fast. It downloads my apps from the Google Play Store fast.

                    Edit: Video showing how it works.

                        Looking good indead,

                        Installed on Mini M8S
                        http://freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-...-10-100-lan-bt

                        First boot sat and hung Like in Clakies Vid, pull power all good.
                        Setup easy, good updates etc,
                        Even an OTA already excellent

                        Using Logitech k400 not 100% smooth, with mouse and left click sometimes jumps about....more checking to be done on that
                        Remote as seen in Video ok.

                        Can't add widgets message touch and hold,
                        How to drag Apps from from list to Lower Bar ?

                        Snappy indeed,

                          Ok, noted. Will try to do something about cursor in leter versions. As to the launcher you can try any other from playstore it should be fine. Maby i will fix this for next versions or just replace with difreant one.

                          Thanks for pointing out the bugs. It will help future development

                            Will tinker about see what other unknowns can be found, looks great

                            Yes a different launcher, easiest fix
