Wink kodi on Android with full HW - try
Posted by: Igonjo - 04-24-2017, 09:10 PM - Forum: Software - No Replies

Kodi behaves really well on tinkerboard running the Android. This is probably the best image quality and the most stable platform that I've ever experienced with a SBC or tvbox.
1. Install Tinker Android per Asus support .
2. download JamesLinEngineer's patch for RK3288 Android 6 librkffplayer.so from https://github.com/JamesLinEngineer/RKMC...Android6.0
3. Then run Android and from a computer use the command: adb connect <ip of you tinkerboard>, adb root, adb connect, adb remount,
adb push librkffplayer.so /system/lib/librkffplayer.so
4. restart android to make sure it still runs :Smile
5. install SuperCeleron's RK dedicated kodi build
FTMC Rockchip Build 26 -> Rockchip Build 26 from
6. activate acceleration and RKcodec and voil'a
try it. Having fun. 
using LAN btw.

  Power Sensitivity
Posted by: william.farmer.tech - 04-24-2017, 08:56 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

So I just plugged in my board to a Power Supply that seems to amply supply for any other of my projects/SBC, and it will start booting and reboot. Is this the default handling of a lower power situation instead of throttling the system? I'm a bit surprised so far that I can't even get the thing functional out of the box with the 1.8 image that was released the other day. 

Anyone have any other ideas? I'll keep at it, including rewriting the chip if I need to. I know the chip is good, it was a straight reformat from a working system.

Is it true that the Tinkerboard will fit in any Raspberry Pi 3 case? Thanks

Did anyone manage to get root in Android? 
I can actually get root through a serial console but I can't get it in apps. 
Set the setuid bit on su but still no success.

user@rk3288:/storage/emulated/0/ssh $ su
su: not allowed
1|user@rk3288:/storage/emulated/0/ssh $ ls -al /system/xbin/su

  Can not boot Android
Posted by: floch - 04-23-2017, 07:45 PM - Forum: Software - Replies (9)


I tried 3 times flash and boot Android but without success.

I flashed Android image with SD_Firmware_Tool.exe

I have 32GB Kingstone SD card Class 10.

After 4 hours of waiting screen remain black.

What should be problem ?

Maybe the problem is in my monitor. I have Tinkerboard connected via HDMI to monitor Samsung with resolution 1920x 1080.

Maybe this monitor and resolution does not works.

How can I check this?

  Change monitor resolution on startup TinkerOS1.8
Posted by: euler - 04-23-2017, 10:26 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)


Using TinkerOS1.8 beta the system only gives me a resolution of 800x600 instead of my monitors resolution of 1920x1200 (DVI-D monitor with HDMI to DVI-D adapter).

I've written and run a shell script from the command line to change the resolution to 1920x1200 but I've not had any luck getting the shell script to autoboot.

xrandr --newmode "1920x1200_60.00"  193.25  1920 2056 2256 2592  1200 1203 1209 1245 -hsync +vsync
xrandr --addmode HDMI-1 1920x1200_60.00
xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1920x1200_60.00

Any suggestions on how to permanently change the resolution?.

I think it's a good idea if we share what apps work under Android and which don't.

I downloaded several apps from Apkmirror.com a spin off of AndroidPolice and the only 3rd party repo that I trust and some were old APKs that I had lying around.
I used the regular ARM (not ARM64) NoDPI version when there was a choice.

Working well:
Chrome (but no sync without Google Play Services)
Domination [RISK clone]
Kingsoft Office [now WPS Office]
Mupen64 Plus AE (Paulscode version side loaded from Play Store-the one from his website wouldn't map my controller)
Kodi (NoDPI ARM version from apkmirror)
PPSSPP (playable with turning the speed toggles on)
ES File Explorer (oldest version from apkmirror)
SNES9x EX  (latest version had a black screen-used 1.5.27 from explusalpha.com and it works beautifully)

Not working for me so far or with issues:
Amazon App Store (runs veeeeery slow)
Reicast (final nightly on the site from 2016)
RetroArch (just locks up)
YouTube (requires Google Services, but works fine in every browser that I tried)
WPS Office (runs but very slowly when doing anything other than editing)
ES File Explorer (current version is so loaded with crapware, I think it slowed the whole system down until I rebooted into safe mode)

  Android....The Good News
Posted by: boudicca - 04-21-2017, 09:36 PM - Forum: Software - Replies (5)

What works

* Okay using the windows tool provided burn the img file as bootable to microsd card and boot it. (take a good 5mins the first time. Don't use Linux DD. Its a Fail....

* Once booted you limited on what's available as there is no Play Store. (Asus come on...deffo please saves the following legwork.

* On my Tablet using APK File Exporter, at one at a time. I exported Netflix / Iplayer / Sys Info / ESFileExplorer and most importantly SPMC 16.5.5 for Android 32bit (Note not the current 16.6.0 which has dropped support for RK3288

* Using a FireTV Adb tool called AdbFire (I use on Linux) which sideloads apk's nicely onto the the Tinkerboard Android.
* Its Rooted so you can do as you please.

Out of the box the following are tested and work at 1080p

System Info

What wouldnt install

Google Playstore
Google Play Services
Plex Client
BT Sport
Sky Go

On SPMC all x264 and x265 files I tried played. at 1080p
I have a sample of Deadpool x264 4k and that played also.
The 4k sample of Big Buck Bunny stuttered at 30fps and 60fps

Audio for SPMC was only stereo downmix sadly, turning on dts/ac3 passthrough, just didnt work (digital hiss). I know it works for my firetv..which is the same version of SPMC.

Still good news ?
