    I have been trying to get openelec on Minix x7. How os it that you are able to get it working on older X6? Is it a custom kernel with boot options or multiboot?

    openelec has had a lot development for amlogic chipsets (x6) and not(less) for rockchip (x7).

    Also X6 is not older! It was released after the X7, if I'm not mistaken.

    this build doesn't work. no hdmi. I asked the developer who ports openelec to amlogic if he could make it work on x6, he said no.

    Isn't OpenELEC dead?

    There is now LibreELEC. You can google it but you won't have much luck there either. Have been told by the maintainer that he cannot have the source for a build working with the X6. Legal issues I suppose.

    For now, only Minix can supply us with a Android alternative.


    Forgot to mention, in the LibreELEC forum look for the S805 section (the X6 SoC).

    so what are the options now?
    minix staff? please advice, many of us have the neo x6 that is not very usable now without an update, and can't install anything else...
