  • [Experimental] LibreELEC 8.0 for S912 released

    I just noticed... kszaq has done it again!
    LibreELEC 8.0 builds aimed at devices based on Amlogic S912 SoC.

    just amazing
    Amlogic has not released fbdev Mali libraries.
    This build uses libhybris and Android gralloc Mali driver - this is why the builds will always be experimental until proper Linux libraries are released (if ever).

      I will assume you read the instructions on the Libreelec website, how to install. I assume you used the correct device tree, & I assume you have created the image to a microsd or usb, as recommended.

      So, with the card or usb plugged in, you hold the reset button, & plug the power lead back in, ( you only need to use the reset method once) So, if everything is correct. with the usb or card in, it will boot to libreelec, with it unplugged, it will boot to android.

      You will get more help on the Libreelec forum

          LibreELEC is a minimised Linux operating system that is multitasking whereas Android only allows the focused application to run. The advantage of LibreELEC is that a LAMP setup Can be run to allow a shared MySQL or MariaDB database to be run and accessed. I have yet to get a shared database system to run on Android!!
