 +Support available in Batocera.linux **30.0** with mainline linux kernel. 
 +
 +For compatibility information, check https://batocera.org/compatibility .
 +
 +== Tested Devices ==
 +There are a wide range of devices available on the market with various wifi/lan/bt chipsets. 
 +If you have tested a device please report back the results on Discord. 
 +
 +The following devices are tested:
 +^ Model/Make     ^ LAN    ^ Wifi  ^ Bluetooth          ^ Tested DTB                ^
 +| Tanix TX3 Max  | Works  | Works | N/A (use a dongle) |meson-gxl-s905x-p212.dtb   |
 +
 +
 +== Limitations ==
 +At the time of writing:
 +  * Video splash is disabled
 +  * Shutdown may not work (reboots the system)
 +  * If your bluetooth or wifi is not working you can add a compatible dongle. [[hardware:compatible_dongle_list|Compatible Dongles list]]
 +
 +== Needed Accessories ==
 +  * SD Card or USB stick
 +
 +== Suggestions ==
 +You have to use a device specific .dtb in the FDT section of **uEnv.txt** file which is located on the root of your SD card.\\  
 +There are some dtb-s included in /boot, so if one does not work it is safe to try out another.\\ 
 +On the first boot you may have to keep pressing the reset for a few seconds. It is usually located under a small hole on the bottom of the box, or inside of the 3.5 audio jack connector. In this case you can use a toothpick to press the button.\\ 
 +Please do not use dtb-s from other sources (older Batocera.linux versions or from other distributions) as they will not work.
