  • Himedia H8 RK3368 ROM Port to other Devices(Kodi with HD Audio, RockchipCodec etc.)

    Hi

    Anyone who knows how to convert the update.zip to an update.img or extract the separate images?
    We need a build system.img from the system folder in the zip.
    Also RKLoader is 175kb and is strange, all other RK3368 loaders eg. RK3368MiniLoaderAll_V2.30.bin are 215KB.
    Is it only bootable on Himedia devices with their own loader perhaps?

    The firmware also has all the libraries needed to play the custom Rockchip Kodi with HD Audio and RockchipVideoCodec for optimized playback that will be on Zidoo devices, only a little older Kodi is bundles here.
    On other device firmwares the Kodi exits if you try to play a video.

    If only someone could make a dump of these partitions with RK AndroidTool v2.35 on a PC from a HiMedia H8 device.
    In Advanced Function in RK AndroidTool you type the first number into count and the last one into start eg.
    count=0x00002000
    start=0x00006000
    And press Export to export the image to an output folder in RK AndroidTool.

    0x00002000@0x00006000(misc),
    0x00010000@0x00018000(recovery),
    0x00040000@0x00060000(cache),
    0x00200000@0x000A0000(system),
    0x00008000@0x002A0000(metadata),
    0x00020000@0x006AA000(radical_update),
    0x00008000@0x006CA000(logo),
    0x00008000@0x006D2000(hiinfo),
    0x00008000@0x006DA000(hiprivate),

    I appreciate the work you do Mo123, are you trying to take the firmware from the Himedia H8 and port it to other RK3368 boxes? If that is the case I would prefer to spend the effort on getting the makers of the other boxes to do their own work, aka Tronsmart. As much as I appreciate the work done by Zidoo and Himedia, I would not want to use their work on my Tronsmart R68. I would rather we put pressure on the other manufactures to do what they have to do. I know I said many times before I would NEVER purchase another product from Rockchip and Tronsmart, I could not resist the $50 price on the Tronsmart Orion R68 Meta.
    MK818B, T428, ATV 1220, CS918S, TV01, S89H, R89, ADT-1, MK808B Plus, MINIX X8-H Plus, Tronsmart Orion R68

      I agree, the other manufacturers should release their own firmware.

      This is just an interesting thing I come across.
      How to convert a system folder in zip to an *.img file with all the correct permissions.
      Also the Himedia resource.img dts file has a lot more differences compared to eg. Tronsmart dts file.
      The resource.img is inside boot.img and called 'second' as is the kernel.
      Also these 2 partitions, I am very curious about hiinfo,hiprivate, what is inside them.
      Will need someone to dump original Himedia firmware with RK AndroidTool.

                I don't think it will work on other firmware, but I'll try installing it myself on other firmware and try.
