Good, I have the Am6b plus (S922x-j). Can I install the Am6 version?
Do you have Viper4Android and magisk rom installed?
What would be the exact version? The ATV or PIE?

Thank you.

Try adding power supply...if that fails,
Try holding reset pin for most(entire) flash process.
You may need to "short" EMMC pins.🤷‍♂️ Topic discussed several pages back.

For # 1 issue maybe Try Slimhouse 3.5.2 Temp TWRP and install wifi patch/Zip
Issue #2/ #3 with Slimhouse Build sometimes you lose USB function alltogether
Also in Settings
Device Preferences
Move to USB and change From Host To OTG may Help with File Explorer

If no USB Recognized
Burn Factory/Stock Image to SD Card and Boot To Recovery
With Success you will Have USB Function Back

Good Luck

Happy Testing

Thanks @Reaper Man same result with the one from 4pda as aidans. the rom installs, but only through sd card method. after it boots to logo then second logo and where there is a line under logo going from left to right over and over it hangs there. i leave for it an hour. still hangs there. I guess there is some defect with the box. Is there anything you suggest ? I have gone into twrp and formatted data (factory reset) and still the same result. any ideas really appreciated. thanks again

There are multiple revisions of m8s pro L. You might have to disassemble and see which chips: memory- WiFi are included. Search through forums for similar firmare.
You might be able to mod(VTX Kitchen?) a firmware with your drivers (if the kernel has the proper code embedded for your chips).

This passes my microscopic skills.
Try contacting SlimHouse via Telegram Chat or leave a direct message here with link to your original firmware. Maybe if he has time??? :)

thank you for trying. i can't find the original firmware when it was new. it's on one from megadanz which i also got from the 4pda forum. it is the only that boots. the links to stock are no longer on mecool and not working at 4pda. so i am going to give up for now and wait and see if aidan releases another release. i was just wondering if that symptom of hanging at that point was indicative of one thing or another. it's probably not worth anyones time to disect the working firmware and look for the difference. i did not take the box out for a couple of years. when i went to put coreelec on that too failed, but the screen came up with the background with a couple of terminal lines. maybe i have the fake ram one. i may try to make coreelec with only 2gig ram dtb and check on that. thanks again

If you kindly have any tutorial links -usage -etc. that would be swell :).
I haven't tried...yet. :unsure:
Sorry, the information I gave is for those who can't access Coreelec.
Follow the step by step that I have here, which works, in my case.
1. Created an “overrides.xml” file with this content:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<overrides>
<override action="RebootToAndroid">
<action>System.ExecWait("/usr/sbin/rebootfromnand")</action>
<action>XBMC.Reboot()</action>
</override>
</overrides>
2. Copied it within the “userdata” folder
3. Went to “Skin Settings -> Miscellaneous -> Customize shutdown menu” and added an item with the label “Reboot to Android” and this action (without the quotes): “RebootToAndroid”
On the Estuary skin, you already have this command Reboot to nand/emmc.

    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.
    5
    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
