    Armbian is a Linux system. To run Libreelec, you need to use Libreelec files. See the first post of this topic, there are links to unofficial versions of LE. After writing the LE image to the SD card, you do not need to add or change anything in SD. You can immediately connect the SD card to the TX6 and turn on the power. The system should start automatically. If this does not happen, then you will need additional steps that depend on the exact name of the TV box model.

      Libreelec Version 20200331.
      Fixed support for 4K video.
      Please note that the image name has changed for Allwinner H6, now it is called h6. The process of updating via the TAR archive has also changed. Now a single shared TAR file (amlgx) is used for the entire line of rk+aw+aml systems that use LIMA+Panfrost drivers.



      A passing question. Are there users of models with H5 ?

              Are you sure you have a Tanix TX6 model ? Have you changed the regular Android firmware ?

              Try to uncomment (del #) the string

              #APPEND=root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0 mem=2048M video=HDMI-A-1:e

              and delete the string.

              APPEND=root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0

                  Hi,
                  Please bear with a Linux beginner here.

                  I've managed to install and run Armbian from a SD card on a Tanix TX6 4/64, but don't know how to get the OS installed on eMMC.

                  The Armbian TV Box - Single Armbian Image page says there is a script that I can run, but I cannot find any .sh file.

                  When I use this command : bash emmc_autoscript.cmd , it comes back with "fatload : command not found; setenv: command not found". Also, do I need to wipe all the paritions in eMMC with GPart before installation ?

                  I have Googled for a few days but could not find an answer.

                  Thanks in advance for your help.

                        1. rename the file (boot-emmc.scr.aw) in (boot-emmc.scr).
                        2. to run the command (sudo /root/install-aw.sh). Note the suffix AW (not to be confused with AML).

                        You don't need to create anything manually on eMMC, the script will automatically install everything.

                        I strongly recommend that you run the DDBR utility (sudo ddbr) and create a full compressed copy of eMMC BEFORE starting the installation. This will help you return to the current state of eMMC at any time (to the system that is currently in eMMC).

                          balbes150 Thank you so much. That is very kind of you.

                          Actually on previous attempts, I did rename all the four AW files to: boot.cmd, boot.scr, boot-emmc.cmd,boot-emmc.scr

                          As for DDBR, I have tried countless times but they always stopped after compressed copying about 1%. It may be because I used a 32G SD Card for a 64G eMMC.

                          In any event, I shall follow your instruction and report back.

                          Cheers.

                            Succeeded ! Armbian running from eMMC.

                            balbes150 Just can't thank you enough for the help and for this brilliant project. As always, you are my hero!

                                Dear balbes150,

                                I own "Tevii p500" which is a "Sunvell Q+" and it's same as "Tanix x6", i used "Libreelec", booted from "SD card", but output on my TV is a appeared for one second then black screen, so i connected to the box UAR,T and i can confirm kernel booting till "init" start, then no message, so what is wrong, kindly find the UART dump in attachments.
                                Also i tried after that to boot with "Armbian", it booted ok, "HDMI" working correctly, but take too long "scanning for btrfs filesystems", so why "Libreelec" can't output correctly.
