# settings put secure accessibility_display_color_matrix 0.5,0.0,0.0,0.0,0.0,0.5,0.0,0.0,0.0,0.0,1.0,0.0,0.0,0.0,0.0,1.0

Tips for CoreELEC users:

As the Android ROM and CoreELEC used different version U-Boot on VIM3, and you have to edit config.ini file to solve the green screen issue:

use_rgb_to_yuv=1

CoreELEC team will update the Linux kernel in the future, and you don’t need to edit it manually then.

Have fun!

is this Rom support to boot from USB CoreELEC?

Yes, it is.

But in order to fix the green screen issue for nightly build, you need to add use_rgb_to_yuv=1 to config.ini file.

Thanks.

anyone has issues with the fan not working? clean installed.

Sorry for that. We haven’t add control menu for Navigation and Status bar yet. But it will be add in the future.

What’s the issue for your fan? Did you can’t turn your fan on?

Can’t turn on. no matter set to auto or lvl1-5 nothing toggles it to start running the 3705 cooling fan. Same setup worked on VIM3_Pie_V190907.

Did you have 5 level on the Fan menu?
This is my Fan control menu, it is only 3 level.


Do you can provide the kernel printing log for me? Thanks

I don’t think so!
Obviously, the firmware is in beta testing …

# adb shell

Terry, you plan to implement in the firmware itself “autoswitch frame rate and resolution” ? it will be very convenient.

I’m sorry, We haven’t a plan for that.

Терри, But how to watch movies? through Coreelec? :grin:

Terry, tell me, please, are you planning to release Android 64 bit version?

i do not know if that is already known, “Dolby TrueHD with Dolby Atmos” is only output as a multichannel 2 channel. I have tested it with the vlc and the standard movie player. different sound settings in android setup do not bring any changes. coreelec hdmi passthrough works correctly.
