Do you know that your UGOOS AM6 TV Box can be used not only for home entertainment? By installing Manjaro Linux your UGOOS AM6 now can operate as a workstation for daily office tasks
As you know UGOOS AM6 (AM6 Pro / AM6 Plus) is a powerful Android TV Box powered by Amlogic S922X SoC (review here) that you can now use as a workstation. A group from Manjaro ARM Team has created a rather stable build to use on UGOOS Brand devices with Amlogic S922 series SoCs.
How to run Manjaro Linux on UGOOS AM6 TV Box
UGOOS Team has prepared a short tutorial in which you will find how to run the available editions of Manjaro ARM Linux (XFCE and KDE) on AM6 TV Box. Manjaro distributives are available for download here.
Distributive should be installed on a flash drive and boots from it. If you are not familiar with the current system you can use our simple instructions to try Manjaro Linux on your UGOOS AM6 device.
Flash drive preparation
You can choose an SD card or Flash drive and format it before use. Make sure you save all your data before starting a procedure. Download and install the Balena Etcher tool for flash drive preparation. Choose previously downloaded Manjaro distributive in the app and flash.
You need to plug off the power adapter from your AM6 first, then plug in the flash drive. To start booting from the flash drive please hold the recovery button and plug-in power back. The first start takes time, so please be patient and follow commands on the screen when they appeared.
Here is a start screen and some other details after XFCE distributive starts on Ugoos AM6
