    ****************************************** Manual run Systems ******************************************

    Now all images Armbian and LE has all the files for activate the multi-boot. Anything in addition to download and copy to media is not required.

    How to run these images on the Amlogic platform .

    1. Download the image for your device
    2. Unpack
    3. Burn the image on the medium
    4. Configure in the file (uEnv.txt) launch parameters for the desired platform and model (uncomment the desired lines and comment out or delete unused ones)

    If universal multi-upload has not yet been activated on this device, you need to activate it once. There are several options for activating multi-loading.

    option A

    - Connect the prepared media to the device and turn on the power, boot into Android
    - Open the app "Update&Backup"
    - Click on "Select" local update and chose the file on the removable media aml_autoscript.zip
    - Start "Update"
    - System will reboot twice and start running the system from external media.

    option B

    - try using the "toothpick method"

    7-10 minutes on the monitor not to receive any messages on system startup. Need to pick up the option for the file system will run. Pay attention, after you add\change the dtb file, you need to try to run the system and waiting to run 7-10 minutes. If not happened, repeat with a different dtb file.

    Attention !!!! On models with S802 S805 S812. Activation multi-boot is possible ONLY with SD card (activation of the USB stick is NOT WORKING). After a one-time activation procedure is multi-boot, run a variety of systems is possible from ANY storage media (SD cards and USB storage devices).

                      The new version of images Armbian 20170815 to S805.



                        Armbian v 5.32 for S805 S812 S9xxx


                          Armbian 5.32_20170828 kernel 4.12.9 (dir Test) In this way there is support for USB on the platform S905X. You can run the system from SD cards and USB flash drives. Changed the activation system monitor, now it is built into the kernel itself. To change the screen resolution, you need to use standard tools from control monitor on a desktop. The resolution changes on the fly (directly on desktop). Not working yet WiFi. There are problems with the dtb files (requires the edit and debug under different models). For s905x recommend to use a file meson-gxl-s905x-nexbox-a95x or meson-gxl-s905x-khadas-vim1. For the model s905 - meson-gxbb-odroidc2.
