LibreELEC installation fails pls Help

Hi everyone,

I decided to change the OS from the Default Android one to Libreelec so I've done the following:

- Formatted the microSD card using SD formatter
- Pasted the files download via http://releases.libreelec.tv/LibreELEC-WeTek_Core.arm-8.0.2.zip
into the mSDcard
- POwered off the wetek core
- Inserted the sd card
- Powered on with the card inserted while holdin the reset button on the back of the wetec core

The installation starts but when the wetec core reboto itself I got a shell screen with the following:

sh: can't access tty; job control turned off

Can anyone help please?

    Hi and thanks for your answer,

    Di I flash Android the same way I was flashing Libreelec?

    Where can I found the latest android version?

    UPDATE: I've reinstalled the Android OS and tried to Run Libreelec from SD card (same card)
    which worked fine.

    So why installing from internal memory doesn't work? The SD is the same.

    Hi. I just ran into the same error (sh: can't access tty; job control turned off), flashing LE 8.2.0 to my Core.

    It seems that this bug is solved for the Play2 and Hub since LE 8.1.2, but clearly not for the Core. Also see here: http://www.wetekforums.com/v/index.php?p=/discussion/30646/nand-install-successful-but-can-not-boot
    And here: https://github.com/LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv/pull/1875

    Could someone please fix booting LE from NAND on the Core? Thanks..!

    @eph It is different issue. WeTek Core uses different kernel and there's no Android Marshmallow for it. Anyway I will check and try to fix the issue.
