Upgrade guidance:


No luck with the green screen issue fix?

Did you means CoreELEC?

No I Mean is there any changes to uboot? As there is no mention about uboot updates.

The uboot code is largely unchanged

This Armbian guide from balbes150 has a section about the color issue. Maybe it can work to solve color issue for others.
This is an except from there…
" Fix for correct color to G12 (Amlogic S905X2 S922X)

For models based on g12 (s905x2 s922), which have a problem not the correct color ,

If you are starting the system from an SD card, you need to rename to u-boot.ext,

If you are starting the system from an USB, you need to rename u-boot.usb to u-boot.ext

When installing in eMMC, you do not need to do anything with your hands, the installation script itself will perform the necessary system configuration and when running from eMMC, the system will work with the correct color."

Hi Terry! Does the gyroscope work in this update?

Our VIM3/VIM3L haven’t the gyroscope module. :smiley:

G-Sensor 6-axis accelerometer:smiley: I asked about it

Yes that is just a workaround and its not applicable to everyone.
also it cannot be used by default some manual work is needed so we can’t call our img ready to use hahaha.

From my understanding either uboot have to be corrected or we might have to patch things manually like balbes option.

Looking forward to the next release! If you need a beta tester let me know!

Sad here :frowning: GPS support is one of the cornerstone issues I need resolved for my project :frowning:

Reported this on last FW already: the native file manager or other mainstream
app shows the odd video ratio! dot to dot issue??
All the things works well on the first original FW 190809(with only PQ issue).
Really disappointed for the FW developing, pls just give one for steaming!

Please try SC firmware, stability, performance, compatibility are great!

The VIM3 spec with 3-axis accelerometer not 6-axis.

@terry response a schedule on this.

Hello! I just read it written 6-axis . Maybe you need to fix it?:slightly_smiling_face:


Oops, wil fix it soon.

Thanks for the feedback!

This problem has been solved, and we will release it on next version.

About the G-sensor, we need to consider some compatibility issues, such dual display. Maybe need more time to do it. :smiley:

Hello! I don’t see a problem to support the 3-axis accelerometer in Android - these are standard functions of all smartphones. Please include in the next update the official firmware for VIM3 for Android Pie. Thanks!
