Notes:
  • These are built with kernels from the latest Beelink GT-King (Amlogic S922X w/ w200 reference board) and Beelink GT1mini (Amlogic S905X2 w/ u212 reference board) firmware, but will probably work on any device based on the same reference boards.
  • The signed .ZIP files are suitable for installation with stock OEM recovery, but they use platform test keys and so might not work on builds requiring release keys.
  • If your device uses Android Verified Boot, there are additional measures you must take to successfully boot with a custom recovery partition.
  • This is unofficial and unsupported, so the usual caveats apply. Since we don't flash the bootloader, you should be able recover from any problems...but nothing is guaranteed.

Not working:
  • MTP & ADB

Downloads:
S922X (Amlogic w400 reference board):
S905X2 (Amlogic u212 reference board):

Change Log:
v3.3.1-0: (20191111)
  • Switched from KM9 to GT1mini kernel

Instructions:
From OEM update app:
  • Copy .ZIP file to flash drive or microSD card
  • Open the UPDATE app and select Local Update
  • Select the .ZIP file and confirm
  • Note: No need to wipe data or cache
From OEM stock firmware (with root):
  • Open terminal window (e.g. Terminal Emulator for Android by Jack Palevich)
  • Navigate to location of .IMG file
  • Type the following:
    Code:
    su
    dd if=twrp.img of=/dev/block/recovery
    reboot recovery
From existing TWRP install:
  • Copy .IMG file to flash drive or microSD card
  • Click Install->Select Storage and pick the external drive
  • Click Install Image and select the .IMG file
  • Select Recovery partition and swipe to install
  • Reboot to Recovery

Hi!

I put your recovery using the UPDATE app method and I am unable to boot to it using "adb reboot recovery". Got a black screen :(

Can someone please assist with how to root the U211 devices? TWRP works great, SuperSu 2.82 installs successfully via TWRP but when the system boots, it's still not rooted.

Any help is greatly appreciated here

I have : S/N:922XHQHE00129
That *should* work then.

Do you know a way to boot in recovery?
Just hold the reset switch in for about 20 seconds while connecting power.

Fastboot mode is more of a challenge on the GT-King, since it can't get enough power from the USB cable by itself. You've got to hold the reset switch while simultaneously connecting both power and the USB cable to the back port.

Magisk installation

And what to do to install Magisk correctly. The root is already on the Android 9 device. Unfortunately, the Magisk installation by TWRP has failed so far. Have any ideas? (applies to device and Amlogic S905X2 HK1 Play)

Can this be used on the Ugoos AM6 pro 4 gb / 32 gb s922x?
My understanding is that Ugoos doesn't use the platform keys, and so the .zip file won't work with the OEM stock recovery. You should be able to flash the .img file, though, from TWRP or dd with root. (Yes, I know that's a bit of a chicken-or-egg scenario, so you might need to use Amlogic's USB Burning Tool or update.exe.) Also, look to see if they've implemented AVB 2.0, which can also be a PITA to work around.

Hello. When I try "Apply update from EXT", I got:
Code:
Found: Amlogic/p281:8.10/OPM1.171019.011/root:userdebug/test-keys
E3003: This update package is intended only for Android Pie builds (SDK 28)

Does it mean I cannot install it in Oreo Android?

Yes that is what it means, I think his REF to TWRP-9.0 pretty much explains its for android 9 aka Pie only.
But there are many other recoverys that do work for Oreo...

    OEM updates will almost certainly revert the recovery partition to stock.
