START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
Guys you need to do some self research over on the Freaktab website regarding cheap AML S912's ATV ROM's, Firmware quality and compatibility for Krypton and alternate Wireless controllers. Do NOT buy S912's with Marshmallow Firmware, worst combo on the market.

WeTek Play2 has been running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Firmware for months now already.

You can run LibreELEC Kodi Krypton on an AMLogic S812-H MINIX NEO X8-H from a SD card and it will be a snappy setup if you use a Samsung EVO (+) or Sandisk Class 10 U1 microSDHC. There is also Android Lollipop Bets Firmware available from MINIX under final testing for the X8-H Plus.

The S812 actually has a better GPU than the S905 which results in a snappier GUI and better at games.

See the LibreELEC AMLogic Subforum, the S802/S812 thread for a LE image to run on that device.
