When an architecture is new, NXP is your best option for getting all the latest and greatest enablement software for our platforms.
As the architecture matures, the enablement is upstreamed and accepted into the community permitting customers to get it directly from the community.
Other recent 64-bit Linux distributions are expected to work but may require extra Linux knowledge.
Older Linux distributions (e.g., Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4) would require extra work and updated software and is not recommended.

Going forward, we encourage customers using Power Architecture based P-series and T-series platforms to get the enablement software directly from the community sources like and (uboot).So it’s a good time to try out and write about the firmware update instructions which are very similar to AML8726-MX firmware instructions.Bear in mind that firmware is usually specific to a given hardware platform, and if you try it on another non-compatible S802 TV box, you may brick your device.Any Windows, Mac OS, Linux computer or even your own Android device should be able to handle is as you just need to download, extract and copy files to an SD card.I’ve done the procedure from a computer running Ubuntu 13.04: This method might also work with any Amlogic S802 based device.
