      In the boot log, I noticed I have one of those boxes that was sold as having 2GB RAM but only one rank is recognized so only 1GB is usable. I edited Lewy's DTB for 1GB of RAM and now it runs fine on my box.

      If Lewy's image won't boot on your box, use the Customization tool to unpack the first level then replace the _aml_dtb.PARTITION with the one attached here and repack the image. Then it should run on your box. I even took Lewy's update and it applied fine, i.e. it didn't change the DTB.
      Hi what version of custom tool are you using, mine wont unpack properly to access DTB.

        Thank you very much for this rom! I've been using my Mini M8S+ (a clone of the Mini M8S II) steadily for almost 2 years now and i'm very happy with it, even happier now that it supports Oreo.
        Some bugs I found:
        -Enter key on physical keyboard not working properly (when searching apps on Google Play or using address bar on browser)
        -Can't drag & drop apps from home screen.
        -strange mouse behavior in settings, selecting a different item than the one pressed.

        Is there a way to prevent the box from sleeping when i turn off the TV? i tried disabling CEC but it didn't work.

          I'm using the 2.0.8 version of the customization tool. I just unpack the first level.

            hi
            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.
            any progress?
            but as i know editing build.prop and mesondisplay.cfg is not enough, dtb.img should be changed also.

              From what i remember it was enough with oreo. As to progress still waiting for some one to share 8.1 sdk

                  Hi lewy20041
                  I installed your ROM on my Q-BOX 4K (2GB_16GB) and it's working fine. Except now I can't multiboot. I have tried using libreelec as per your instructions but it doesn't work.
                  I am also unable to flash firmwares by creating boot card using BurnCardMaker + AV button (which is what I used to flash your ROM). Any advice to restore my original ROM?

                    You need kernel.img and dtb in the root directory of your sdcard or pendrive

                      I did this. It just come to the boot logo and freezes there. This wasn't happening before I flashed your ROM.

                      Is there anyway to flash .img from within android?

                        Than its reading the kernel and dtb properly. Remember that oreo andnugat and marsh mallow all use difreant dtb for difrean kernel. Libreelec use nugat kernel so if you want to boot it you need nugat dtb for your unit. You can also use twrp using twrp renamed to kernel.img and dtb.img just make sure its correct dtb for the kernel.

                          Where can I find the various dtb files?

                            Just look online or get it from any nougat rom for your unit. Also there should be repo with dtb on libreelec forum
