CoreELEC on UGOOS X4Q Pro
« on: November 29, 2022, 02:42:40 PM »
We are waiting for an official build of CoreELEC (Linux Kodi for Android STB) for X4Q Pro. UGOOS have told us that they've sent a sample box to CoreELEC.

In the meantime, CoreELEC can be installed on X4Q Pro using the standard S905X image. The caveats are that wired networking currently does not work (but wireless does) and setting up the Bluetooth remote is a bit fiddly. Playback is excellent with support for 4K HDR10 and audio 7.1 audio passthrough.

You'll need an RF mouse / airmouse because when the box first boots into CoreELEC the remote will not be recognised.

The instructions below will install CoreELEC to a micro-SD card without touching the existing Android OS. If you want to revert to the Android OS just remove the micro-SD card.

CoreELEC installation instructions.

- Download CoreELEC here: https://coreelec.org/
- Burn to micro-SD card.
- Copy 'sc2_s905x4_4g_1gbit.dtb' from device tree folder on SD card to root and rename as 'dtb.img'.
- Insert SD card into X4Q Pro and reboot by pressing the pin remote button inside hole on base.
- The X4Q Pro will boot into CoreELEC auto setup, you'll see a couple of message at top left about resizing partitions and the X4Q Pro will reboot into CoreELEC.

UGOOS Bluetooth remote setup instructions.

- From CoreELEC home screen select the cog icon at top left.
- Select CoreELEC button at bottom
- Select Bluetooth.
- Select 'Put box into pair mode'
- Hold volume- and volume+ on UGOOS remote. The remote should appear in the list of visible Bluetooth devices. Select it to connect.

This connection process only needs doing once.
