            The DTB lewy included with the Oreo image is only for 2G RAM boxes. I posted an edited DTB for 1GB boxes earlier in this thread. You can do a first-level unpack of the Oreo image and swap DTBs then repack and hopefully that will make an image that boots on your box.

              The DTB has the remote definition in it. You'd have to take the remote.conf for your box and add those definitions into the DTB to get your remote working.

                Levy ROM works nicely on the Le Potato S905X CC (LibreComputer).
                Does anyone know which WIFI dongle to use?
                For the developer, could you compile with more wifi hardware options. I have some WIFI USB dongles but none seems to work out on the Le Potato.

                        Unfortunately, Oreo no longer supports the use of a remote.conf file in /etc.

                        By default, Android versions from Nougat onwards have the remote definitions in the DTB. If you decompile it to a DTS, you can search for "keymap" and you'll find the remote definitions.

                        I've seen some Nougat ROMs that have some kind of app installed that allows a person to continue using remote.conf files in /etc. I've never looked to see which app they're using but I've seen it in more than one ROM so it must be something fairly common.

                          Yes, it most likely will run on your box but there are a few changes you'll have to make
                          - You'll have to replace the DTB with the 1GB RAM version I posted earlier in this thread
                          - Your remote and Wi-Fi probably won't work unless you add support for them to the ROM
                          - As with most ROMs, you'll have to leave the box on all the time because if you shut it off, the remote won't turn it back on; you'll have to pull the power plug to restart it

                              Tried flashing the image using etcher on a MacBook and get the following error message: "It looks like this is not a bootable image. The image does not contain a partition table and may not be recognized or bootable by your device."

                              I went ahead and flashed anyways, inserted SD card into Le Potato and get nothing on the screen. Is this a simple fix? Any suggestions? Thx

                                The .img is to use with Amlogic Burning Tool only. It want work with Etcher.
                                Everything is possible if we work together!
