I recently acquired this device: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09LKTKWKV?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details except it says ‘Greva’ in place of ‘Rupa’ on it. It was cheap ($40) at the time I bought it and I had thought it would be easy to load Emuelec on it since I saw there was an image for this chipset on the latest beta I’ve been using for a couple similar S905X4 boxes I have.
I can get it to go into recovery but it doesn’t boot from the 64GB MicroSD card I flashed with this image using Rufus: EmuELEC-RK356x.aarch64-4.6-TEST-07082022-rk356x.img.gz
I had some initial trouble with my first S905X4 unit as it claimed to have 4GB RAM and a 1Gb ethernet NIC but I found a thread here where someone else had a box with only 2GB RAM + 100Mb ethernet and once I found and used a DTB file with those corrected to the true values I got it to work. During the time I was having trouble with it, it was behaving similarly to the RK3566 box I have now that won’t boot.
I read that sometimes they can only boot to a USB drive so I tried putting the MicroSD card with the image on it into a USB adapter and it still didn’t boot. I don’t know if that is a valid test or not, I’ll have to find a USB flash drive to write the image to… but I’m confident that 99.999999% of the time I’m not the first one to experience any given tech issue so I thought I’d ask here if anyone has solved this problem already or if I’m missing something obvious or simply doing something dumb without being aware of it.
Any/all help would be appreciated! Thx! -T
