I got my new VIM3 which I want to use as a smart tv box. I don’t want to use android though, I want to use CoreElec/Librelec instead. I don’t have an SD card here so I thought that I will just flash into the EMMC. At first I thought that I can flash immediately CE/LE but I couldn’t find an EMMC image so instead I decided to try to flash Krescue to emmc and check how it works.
I downloaded the utils git repo from:
And after I installed everything I tried to flash the Krescue immage with aml-burn-tool. (I also tried to flash the Ubuntu emmc image with the same results).
The burn-tool always failed during the unpacking stage. I looked a bit at the code and it seems that it just runs the aml_image_v2_packer. So I used the check function of this tool ‘-c’ against all the images that I have. In all of the images (I tried .xz and .img files)
I am getting the following error:
[ERR]f(AmlImagePack.cpp)L257:Image check error! The magic number is not match
I am running Ubuntu 20.04 here. I highly doubt that all my images are corrupted, does anyone have the same problem?
