      if you have issues with the boot on sdcard, you may need to flash the L105 android firmware (it will erase the whole box content).

            How can i check the CPU temperature? I'v tried with lm-sensors but it doesnt detect the SoC. I remember there is a special kernel module into the stock firmware.

              Ok, i've fixed the 100% cpu issue with your command. Is there a way to check the SoC temperature? tried lm-sensors with no luck. I remember there is a kernel module for that into the stock firmware.

                Ok i will try this release and let you know.
                For the moment i've fixed the brcm 100% cpu issue with disabling blutooth. I've tried to mount my external DVD player and it's working with the added modules.
                It's very cool to have ubuntu at hand.

                        thank you. I've worked on your ubuntu the whole day. It's working great.
                        I've installed a lot of packages.
                        I just want to know something before continue, if i flash your new version v1, i will lose all my datas and installed package right?

                            I propose to make the same label : - BOOT boot partition - ROOTFS for the root partition. LABEL is necessary to register the same in the fstab file and in bootargs.
                            Add in boot partition second file s905_autoscrip_720 with settings for 720p60hz. Would a simple renaming of the file s905_autoscrip_720 in s905_autoscript to have the ability to download the monitors that don't support 1080. If your TV does not support 1080 can not boot and build file with parameters 720p60hz.

                              sure, that's good ideas !
