    Then I thought fine I'll flash back stock rom, I didn't erase bootloader it must be fine right?
    Wrong, now the reset button method to flash it does not work, the PC does not detect the box now...
    How can I save this box now?
    try burn_card_maker first with your stock firmware, it can be used when the usb device does not appear on windows.

    if burn card maker failed , check u-boot uart and masking the eMMC.

    Untick Erase bootloader at this moment does not save you from bricking the device..
    Now you have to see if you have serial output then you can put the box in update mode from inside uboot, or find the emmc mask mode for that box!

    Well i have a x96max s905x2 with 4GB lpddr3 and is booting just fine, you only lose the front display and to flash the box again it needs to be by serial or inside the rom itself call the update mode.
    maybe DDR clock is different.

    u-boot serial console log says

    h96max x2 with stock firmware
    LPDDR3 probe
    ddr clk to 792MHz

    when I try with a95x f3 fw (don't work anymore)
    LPDDR3 probe
    ddr clk to 912MHz

    when I try with GT1 mini-2 fw (flash failed at half porcess)
    LPDDR3 probe
    ddr clk to 600MHz

    -------------
    to SC,
    If possible, please reduce the system partition size as small as possible in next build.

    to SC, if popssible, compress the update image as 7z or zip before cloud upload , that make download size half.

    and thnaks.


    ------------------------------

    if you have a box with LPDDR3, most custom roms (for DDR4) are not compatible maybe.

    I have , h96max x2 (4G lpddr3) a95x f3 air (maybe lpddr3) , and all custom roms are failed to boot.

    I try to update system image only of this firmware.

    My boxs run well, better than stock firmware.

    But my boxs have smaller system partition size , 0x5c800000 and 0x60000000 than this image's system size 0x78000000.

    So require to resize the partitions or to shrink the image before update.

    If possible, please reduce the system partition size as small as possible.

    if you want to try...

    [0] check your system partition size : " dmesg | grep meson-mmc " in adb shell.
    your box is android 9.0 already. (android 8.1 has different part structure , not compatible)

    [1] download AMLogicTools_V6.0.0

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...tools-t3786991

    [2] Using the CustomizationTool.exe, unpack the image and get system.PARTITION.

    if your system part size is smaller than 0x78000000, you have to shrink the image before update.
    In linux , simg2img -> resize2fs -> img2simg , get the image that fits your system size.


    [3] Using AMLogicTools_V6.0.0\bin\update.exe , update the system partiton only


    install the driver (AMLogicTools_V6.0.0\driver) if you don't install the amlogic usb_burning_tool before.

    plug usb a-a cable

    adb shell "reboot update" <--- will make the device usb burning mode, or try reset button with toothpick.

    update scan <-- check device is ready

    update bulkcmd "disk_initial 0"

    update partition system system.PARTITION <--- update

    update bulkcmd "reboot recovery" <-- go recovery mode

    clear cache or factory reset


    refer to http://openlinux.amlogic.com:8000/do...user_guide.pdf


    ----------------------------

    to SC, if popssible, compress the update image as 7z or zip before cloud upload , that make download size half.

    and thnaks.

    Yes it should work just fine in that box... but you will lose reset button!
    So if you want to flash back to another rom you need to do it from inside rom in a shell or in serial console...

    But i can tell you this, it works on mini1/2, s95, x96 max, tx5 max and my work boxes.
    OK, thank you for the useful information.
    Out of curiosity, I thought I would try this firmware carefully...
