Android 8.1 Oreo arrives at Amlogic S905X SoC

As we read in the Stane1983 blog the manufacturer of SoC’s Amlogic has released a new SDK based on Android 8.1 Oreo compatible with the well-known Quad Core SoC S905X. In theory, good news for the owners of a TV-Box based on this chip but we will see if we really see it in a Chinese Box. We already know that most brands offer very limited support and will surely focus on other products based on the new S905X2 and S905Y2 chips and abandon the support for the S905X. As always, the sales and the short-term profit send in the Chinese manufacturers unless this time they show us the opposite.

It seems that this SDK is quite stable, fast and Kodi 17.6 works very well, good news for those who plan to buy a box with SoC S905Y2 or S905X2 since the bugs found are small and easily solved and this SDK is also compatible with these new Amlogic chips. The basic launcher as we see is the typical Amlogic, although fortunately many brands do not use it in their firmwares.
