Wow, this is awesome, after longtime we have some development work back on track.
is this a 32bit or 64bit ROM?
My android box is Tanix tx92 which is also clone of Vorke z6 plus and Vontar Tx92, its LPRAM version so will this ROM work?
TX92 - S912 - 3/32GB - LPRAM-QCABT-QC9377

Playback issue

Hi, it’s nice to see you here at xda. I hope we don’t need to use google translator anymore ?
I am a happy user of slimhouse FW for a few months now. Lately I am suffering playback problems, no matter which player I use: Kodi internal, VLC Player, MxPro... all of them are freezing when I open an mp4, mkv,...
At first I thought it was related with the players, so I uninstalled and installed all of them, and the problem is still there... after checking some forums, I found some references pointing to an amlogic problem of some ROMs. I am not sure if you could suggest any solution.
I am currently running: slimbox-x3-asop-ver5.1 and the kernel version is 4.9.113
Is there any guide I can follow to upgrade to an updated version? I tried to find something on the 4pda forum where I got this fw, but it seems like you’ve move here.
The hw I am using is X96 Air P3 (v1)
Thanks in advance for your help!

Thank you for this ROM and for this thread. I managed to install it 2 weeks ago, thanks to google translator, but this thread is a must for support.
I have a x96 Air P4 4/32, and this ROM made the experience of using it much more pleasant, as well as user-friendly. Using AOSP version with a 3rd-party launcher.

The first problem I faced up until now was that some app menus had the same font color as the background, but that was 'solved' by disabling System bars' Autohide function. (Slimbox settings>System bars>untick Autohide.)
Also was having some issues with the clipboard pop-up, but installed g-board and it now shows everywhere.
Still can't run TVZion or Popcorn Time, but have no idea why.

Good morning, I'm crazy looking for how to install this rom since yesterday. I am trying to record it with "Burn card maker 2.0.2" but I did not create the file "aml_sdc_burn.ini" and that I think is the problem. What am I doing wrong? Thank you

    You are on Pie rom or ATV rom? In which voice search works?
    It works on both. I'm on ATV. What I found was I have a G 30s air mouse with microphone. But the microphone only works if in the 2.4 gigahertz mode not the IR remote mode. If that helps.

    I have found out how to root SlimRom with Magisk:

    1. Root SlimRom via the settings
    Then you will have "Superuser" rooting.

    2. Install TWRP
    You don't need to, but you can install your TWRP image permanently via the TWRP app:

    3. Extract boot.img
    You need to extract "boot.img" in TWRP:
    Code:
    cat /dev/block/boot > /sdcard/boot.img

    4. Patch the stock boot.img with Magisk manager app
    Install Magisk manager apk.
    Press the upper install button and select the stock boot.img.
    Magisk will create a patched boot.img.

    5. Now unroot in SlimBox settings

    6. Flash the patched boot.img in TWRP by selecting install, then image, then choose the file, to "boot"

    7. Finally flash Magisk.zip in TWRP


    Thats it.

    14.7 is out!!!

    3. Extract boot.img from stock firmware
    You need to have a stock rom for your device.
    Ideally a zipped rom, so that you can extract the "boot.img" out of it.

    In case you have an img-file, than you need to extract "boot.img" out of it via Amlogic toolkit:

    By this you can extract the stock boot.img from the stock firmware.

    This is only good for android 7 images, Android 9 (which most people are using) is totally different.
    To root slimbox you only need patch the current boot.img
    In twrp :
    cat /dev/block/boot > /sdcard/boot.img

    Then use magisk to patch the img

    Reboot to twrp

    Flash the patched boot.img to boot.

    Reboot
