That is not a lot of info.
Meaning Google:Youtube-Chrome?
Archive videos?
MP4-MKV-Divx-H264-H265 ?
WiFi or wired connection?
Mxplayer-Vlc-Vimu?

(I don't have this China Box/nor v15.3..maybe others can suggest fixest after more info)

Great rom!

Is there a way to make external HDD go to sleep when not in use? It is continuously spinning 24/7.

On a laptop it goes to sleep.
Thanks in advance!
Mine spins down.
Beelink Gt King Pro/ Powered 3TB Toshiba HD. USB3
Settings>Device Preferences>USB> USB3 Superspeed
Settings>Device Preferences>Power>Power Key and timer>Shutdown

??Some China Box-USB ports have the power always on??

Find which version of Chrome you are using:
You may have to uninstall(reboot) and re-install Chrome to get permissions working. (If you back up Chrome's data/bookmarks...you may import the bugs that cause errors in the first place.)

Chrome_ v57.0.2987.132 (my fav.. very old.. obsolete )
New version? Chrome_ v103.0.5060.53 (uugh :sick: )
Apkpure.com
Apkmirror.com

Try Firefox ..only marginally better than new Chrome

I have a magicsee n5 max. I bought it as a s905x3. But how do I tell if it's a x2 or x3? Without taking it apart?

Hello,
I am looking for a ATV ROM that would work on a Zoomtak M5PRO with s905X3 amlogic processor. Is there a compatible ROM that I can use even if remote control does nor work 100%. The box has ethernet RJ45 chipset. I know this is very important if I want to connect via wi-fi. Thanks for any help you can provide.

I think Cortex-A55 is s905x3..possible to be s905x4
If the other apps are not helpful:
I read that Antutu scores are 75 000 vs 100 000.
Try running that software?

There are a few brands with firmware based on s905x3 on Slim's website. If memory and WiFi chips are the same you could experiment.
or-
If you post firmware of Zoomtak M5PRO on 4pda site.. and kindly ask... Slim House might make a version?
You will have to google the links. (Xda rules)

Thank you very much. My box has 2 GB. of RAM, s905X3 Amlogic processor, and uses the RJ45 Ethernet controller. I am surprised there are not any ROMs for this box because, in terms of build quality, it is one of the best out there. Can you suggest any particular ROM I should test on this box? Thank you again.

    Just installed latest slimbox vontar X4 asop v 16.3.4 on my HK1 RBOX X4 with 1000MB Ethernet. Seems to run a lot better than initial 2 versions. I will stick with it and see how it goes. That said I only use my boxes for IPTV streaming so be good if someone else gave it a proper workout and post some feed back.

    Well I have a transpeed x4 so I might give the 16.3.4 a try on it, but I must tell you 16.3.3 wasn't very good at all.
    Latest now 16.4 - I just installed the aosp version using burning tool 3.1. Finally adaway apk working using root blocking cos magisk installed on 16.4. Thats a good start for me.

    The original remote is in the picture
    You need to Test X96Air Firmware
    Not X96maxplus...etc

    Try Revision P1 X96Air slimboxtv Firmware

    Good luck

    Happy Testing

    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
