Any support for Lakka

This RetroArch add-on also works on VIM2, but it requires some updates/upgrades:

Lakka is already working on the Khadas VIM.

Use the following s905 image: http://www.lakka.tv/get/linux/s905/
With this vim dtb file here: https://kszaq.libreelec.tv/s905/8.2/device_trees/S905X/
And it should boot the same as LibreELEC :slight_smile:

Thanks numbqq. I will try again
Cheers

Does that S905 Lakka image really boot form SD “as is” without additional patching except dtb change? It does not work for me at all. I can’t eveny see any sign of initial u-boot activity on the serial console.

Hi cftech,

Have you tried these steps? If so it’s the same to boot LibreELEC.

Sure. I can boot other system images made by that way (the only difference is that I’m using dd under linux to write image files to the SD card, but that cannot maky any difference), but not the Lakka.

im still with the same problem. cannot use lakka on sd card :confused: probably im noob :frowning:

Hi pipoko,

Can you boot LibreELEC ?

Yes. If i use libreelec image i can boot. But with lakka i can’t

Hi pipoko,

For Lakka, it’s the same to LibreELEC.Just write image to SD card and replace the dtb from https://kszaq.libreelec.tv/s905/8.2/device_trees/S905X/

Yh. But i did it. Changed name to dtb.img and lakka didnt start. I dont know why

Hi @pipoko, @cftech

I have built an EMMC installtion Lakka image. Can you try this image? You don’t need any modification.
