I am trying to boot @balbes150 libreelec on my khadas vim. I don’t need multiboot or anything else, just to boot it from microsd card. I don’t have Khadas VIM remote so this is also not needed. Have Any Logitech Smart Keyboard on USB.
I followed these instruction but it does not boot to libreelec on microSD. Any hints?
used this u-boot: Vim_Marshmallow_Root_170303.7z
find microSD card:
# dmesg | tail -n 10

unmount (if automounted)
# umount /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdb2
zero the beginning of the micro SD card:

@balbes150 wrote this, but here it does not work
- To write the image to the media (SD or USB)
- Delete media file “dtb.img”
- Rename the file “remote.conf.vim” in “remote.conf”
- To activate the multi-boot using this media (as an option, using the launch application in Android “Update&Backup”, details are in this thread and in the subject of Ubuntu).
- Start LE with external media, to verify and customize yourself. If you are satisfied, choose off menu item “Reboot to Install to eMMC”. The system will automatically install the LE in the internal memory (eMMC).
To work the remote control, you need to use the old version of the firmware (with Android 6). The new version of the firmware (with Android 7) changed the format of the processing codes for the remote control and this format is not compatible with existing images LE. Therefore, the remote LE will not work if you attempt to run LE on a version 7 Android. So for those who wanted to install the LE in the internal memory (eMMC), you need to have the firmware in eMMC with the previous version of Android 6. Only then, after the install LE in the eMMC, will operate the remote control.
In this paste log at the first are instruction i used and after line 30 the u-boot (from Vim_Marshmallow_Root_170303.7z) boot log.
These instruction i took from @Gouwa in this post without copying any new dtb, only your in image.
I also tested with deleting dtb.img but it still does not boot.
