Well, I hope the "reboot to Coreelec" function can be added to the next version update Maybe 14.8 (∩_∩)
Post #18 has an apk reboot to CoreELEC [sd card & pendrive], similar to what you are looking for?

Hi folx - another beginner here - have read first 20 pages..and last 10 - but didn't get some clear answer (maybe i was negligent heh...)
I have this piece of history box from 2017 NEXBOX A95X RTL8723BS wifi chip still on Android 6.

nxbx.jpg



Found these 2 firmwares on

https://slimboxtv.ru/amlogic-s905x/amlogic-s905x/

Which one is better - to use only with remote (without air mouse or usb keyb) primary for Kodi with addons?

Beeline RASSE-001 + patches for RTL wifi chip

or

Magicsee N5 (Android 7 based)

lot of versions ...

Prefer PIE 9 over ATV
Is the remote working with these roms?
I plan just to flash with UBT with USB cable, done that on my other S905W box with Aidan's ROM without probs.
Is TWRP and recovery a must procedure?

Thanx alot and regards,

Thanx alot and regards,
Some people only have several apps they use on a regular basis.
Some people have 30+ apps, E-mails, subscriptions, passwords and every tweak and setting modified for their/family satisfaction.

The first group can be up and running in a hour.
The latter group can spend 1 or 2 days to get the O.S. environment settled. 😏

If you tweak and experiment much... TWRP can save from substantial down time.

dear friend i really appreciate your work (surely the best roms around), anyway, strangely, with gt king and ugoos mod on, i want to update but cannot make usb burning tool recognize my gt king. I tried 4 different pcs and nothing, with normal slimbox worked, can u explain why? thanks
P.s. anyway, strangely, this time when I used SD card burn method worked (never before), mistery thickens.
I can only say i always have magisk installed but I don't think this matters when flashing, at least Don't in smartphones

I might be mistaken,..there was an issue with the Gt King series after flashing Slimbox v14.6.3. Burn tool did not recognize the China Box? I might have misunderstood-.google translate..etc. :unsure:

Exactly! I have gt king SA9 series: before i flashed rom through PC cause SD method didn't worked from me (recovery flashing stopped very early). Since I flashed ugoos mod through PC via USB burning tool (ugoos mod worked almost perfectly simply no red eyes when in sleep mode but I simply wanted to update), no PC recognized my gt king but incredibly started to work sd card method.
Now i came back to slimbox classic mod
I cannot find an explanation

Hi
I have noticed an increase in CPU temperature of about 8-10 degrees since the latest 14.8 update.
earlier with sbx 14.7 when I do not use the device the temperature showed 39_40 degrees now with 14.8 it shows 48_49 degrees
(x96max plus 2 x 4gb).
who has an explanation? Thank you

Try previously posted "Memory Cleaner" tools to see a difference.
SDMaid can show apps running in background.
Someone might narrow down the app or service causing exxtra heat.

    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
    14.7 is out!!!
    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
