    5. open the app "Update&Backup"
    6. Select local update and an archive on removable media (
    7. Run update
    8. System twice to reboot and start running the system from external media.
    9. If after 7-10 minutes on the monitor not to receive any messages on system startup. Turn off TV box and add in manual in the first partition (FAT) the file "dtb.img". On the media there is a directory dtb from where you can take the files and copy them to the root of the renaming of "dtb.img".

    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).

                      This version works on the entire line of chips S905 S905X S912.

                      The new version 20170202. It fixed several bugs, including automatic gain control mode of CPU frequency. By default, the frequency range 100-2000. If you want to limit, edit the script /etc/init.d/cpufrequtils maximum and the minimum value is below\above which you do not want to use.


                      In the section of the VIDEO added a few videos with the results of the test run the test files and the operation of the automatic gain control of CPU frequency and temperature control. Note - tests performed on models (s905 s905x) with a reworked cooling system.


                        S905 S905X S912

                        In addition to the XFCE desktop, is now available for testing version of the image with a DM MATE. Suggestions for addition packages and the errors are accepted in the relevant topics.
