Does anyone know if I can install a permanent TWRP on a Vontar X3 (and where I might find it if it does exist :) )?

Thank you in advance.

Hello, can you help me, I wrote from telegram, no one helped you. The device in the picture is S905 X3 4Gb ram 32Gb rom. I have the slimbox 12.2 ported software of the device. I have the current original software on my device ugsbx_x96max_plus2_pie_042_8.
I tried img but the screen and remote didn't work. All other functions are working. Can you edit the current rom file on this slimbox site. I changed the control tab files, it doesn't work on the screen

This is the Slimbox and other ROMS for your box all of which should get your remote and wifi working again. Each choice will let you download ATV or PIE. I would use ATV. It's a Russian site so you'll need a translator. Just scroll down to the Plus 2 and you'll see the download options.

The rom slimbox 12.2 atv control screen at this address is working


I want to work on this new slimbox pie in this link


Your box might not be the plus 2, it could e one of the other revisions.....you might have to take the box apart and look inside.
Theres a lot of different versions of the X96 Max Plus box. One of them has blue lights on display and others have white lights.

If the factory remote doesn't work after you flashed a ROM to you box you most likely used the wrong ROM. Here is the correct ROM for your box if it has the S905X2 CPU. You'll also find the original firmware on this page. You'll need to use a translator.
Thank you for answering, but rom I just downloaded did not flash successfully giving me error [0x10303004] Romcode/SwitchStatus/Identify/Error result at 20 sec from beginning. I am able to flash rom km9_pro_honour_v1.2_stock_atv9.img and it flashes O.K. but then I come to obstacle i can not pass. This is box provided to me from cable tv provider, and remote controller is infra red, not bluetooth. Any other suggestion ?

If that didn't brick it you are lucky. I've never had a failed flash part way in not brick a box. But if it does brick it's easy enough to unbrick these boxes. If you knew what remote.conf file it needs I've found a pretty decent remote.conf repo on Telegram.

I tried, the result is negative, the remote control and the screen do not work
Hmmmmmmmm
From images posted looks like you have
Rtl 8211f
8822cs blutooth
Should be similar/ same as one of the x96Air files???
Remote not working is common
What do you mean by screen does not work?
No display from HDMI out?

Maybe test av port with an composite cable and older TV.

Happy Testing

    Thanks, you know some coreelec informations about X96 max+ with some instructions?
    Go to CoreELEC Forum
    Discourse.coreelec.org
    Do not have to be member
    Instructions all there.
    Basically burn image to SD card or USB
    rename DTB to dtb.img...etc

    I saw

    which tv settings you mean? in the settings of the tv box where i have slimbox rom installed?

    in the device settings i can only find display settings, where i see HDMI CEC....Dolby Vision

    I mean your TV. I assume the problem is on the same TV? Some Tv's, the new ones have several HDMI modes and you can select between HDMI standard (1.4), advanced (2.0) and Dolby Vision (2.1). Newer Tv's can probably have even more HDMI formats. You need to select between these formats while you are in HK1 to see where it was defaulted...

    I'm saying this because the exact same thing happened to me on a Sony TV, no signal because it was in HDMI format standard, changing to advanced on the HK1 port worked...

    How can he test Coreelec? He needs android to work first so he can reboot to bootloader and coreelec boots if i'm not mistaken. I've tried to put coreelec usb/sdcard before turning HK1 on and it never went to coreelc first, even with the toothpick process... It only works when android boots and then "reboot upload" with an app like termux or similar and coreelec gets booted, but if you can do it without having an android ROM installed and working that would be awesome...
    Coreelec will boot even if the TVbox is "soft-bricked" . In soft-bricked TVboxes you may not need to press the reset button to boot Coreelec. Anyway I have given him links for ugoos port 0.5.3 (AOSP and ATV versions) throuth PM.

    I'm sorry to ask but what size are your sdcard or usb stick for coreelec, because from what've heard it needs less than 1GB and come on, every ~30 EUR box nowadays has at least 32GB of eMMc, HK1 64GB costs what? 40EUR...almost the same as a good usb stick or sdcard for coreelec if i'm not mistaken...
    This thread is about slimboxtv
    I have slimboxtv on internal on all 3 of my boxes.
    Running great.
    Coreelec on external on all 3 boxes
    Can switch between effortlessly.

    Both are running great.

    Great job Team SlimHouse !!!

    Again to each his own

    Come to CoreELEC forum to discuss

    My problem with coreelec is that nobody recommends to install it on internal eMMc and that's the main reason i won't use it at all because i don't like to spend a usb stick or sdcard just for coreelec. And plain and simple if you don't use android anymore why waste a usb stick or sdcard when you can install it on internal memory?! And here we go...can anyone explain me why not?!

    PS: No one on Coreelec site supports installation on internal eMMc and they don't explain why at least they don't explain with the truth!!! They say they don't recommend because... and then they go away doing something else and we waiting for the "why not". Still today and no answers...
    I also do not recommend to install it at the EMMC, but I think you can try it if you already know the 2 pins to recover/revive the TVbox if it is bricked !! The reason they do not recommend it, I think is that they can not guarantee that you will get a dual boot system (Coreelec+Android) for not supported by them TVboxes. (probably you will get only Coreelec). Anyway you can try if you want.
    Just for test reasons I installed in EMMC of my HK1 Box Armbian. It was really fast from it, but after that the TVbox was not recognised from my PC and USB Burning Tool, so I had to use shorting/connecting of the 2 pins to install my Android firmware again.
    I remember that when installing Coreelec in EMMC there is an option to install it alongside the Android or ONLY Coreelec. If you want only Coreelec, I think you should choose this option (anyway maybe the 1st option will create only problems).

    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
