    Linux on MyGica

    Linux on MyGica The ATV1900Pro contains a AMLogic S905 processor. I see the ODroid C2 has the same processor - https://www.hardkernel.com/main/products/prdt_info.php?g_code=G145457216438 Has anyone attempted to get full blown linux up and running on it rather than Android (yes - I'm aware this would probably void the warranty)? I searched a bit and found the following basic example https://mxqproject.com/tutorial-s905s905xs912-linux-ubuntu-mate-install-tutorial/ but just wondering if anyone has actually tried this on the MyGica hardware.

    I didn't manage to get the file system to load as "read write" and eventually gave up on this route. I checked out http://fokke.org/site/content/howto-create-android-updatezip-package and it seemed that an update.zip was the way to go (to patch without the OS booted). I downloaded the "unroot" patch that I referred earlier to get some hints on the structure. The direct link to unroot is at http://mygicasupport.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=3552 Below is what it does. show_progress(0.800000, 80); set_bootloader_env("upgrade_step", "3"); mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/system", "/system"); delete("/system/etc/install-recovery.sh"); delete("/system/xbin/su"); delete("/system/xbin/sud"); unmount("/system"); set_bootloader_env("upgrade_step", "1"); show_progress(0.100000, 0); So in theory the update this should work without any modification... and it does. My device is now "unrooted" after running - with no other issues detected after a day or two of testing. To restore root we would basically just reapply the latest firmware (with was already rooted). Hopefully this helps other people struggling with the same issue.

    I have downloaded the latest firmware from This has changed the build to V001M901_20161125 (and the model to MyGica_S905 TV Box for some reason). It seems that the file system is "read only" so root cannot be removed?

    Perhaps we can get a patch like the one found for the older models?

    Ok - According to the about settings are fine. So all I need is the info on how to "unroot".

    The device is definitely a 1900 according to the device's appearance and serial number and other stickers on it. Not sure what the model shows incorrectly as well in about.

    I have just installed a ATV1900 Pro and some apps do not appear to work because the device is rooted. Please can someone advise how I "unroot" the device. It gives the following info in the "About" screen: - Model: MyGica ATV495 Pro 16G - Version: 5.1.1 - Build: V001M901_20161013
