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

    I have never done an SD flash using slimbox but if I did I would be selecting erase in total...

    Leaving Burn Card Maker at default settings (normal in erase) is enough, if you want to preserve you apps then uncheck erase flash option, as you said USB Burning Tool and cable is recommended way to flash..

    Hello, where can I edit the display files of my x96 air s905x3 device in slimbox rom?

    I threw a slimbox compatible rom to the device, the factory rom display is working and I have the files

    Compatible with S905x3 air p3 rom device. I edited remote control files. Display clock screen does not work
    This is totally DIY
    Sites with lots of info 4pda :geek:

    I always flash this way - some may do slightly different but this always works for me

    Get a Dual ended USB cable. Plug one end in one of your PC USB slots
    Download and extract correct img. file for your box - important as X96 max plus has many versions
    Install Amlogic burning tool 3.2 on PC - start it
    Load img.file
    Hit start
    On box insert toothpick in AV slot till reset button clicks and hold down
    Insert USB cable end into one of the USB slots on box (which slot depends on box) - release toothpick
    Should connect and start to flash - if not repeat actions eg remove USB - Toothpick hold down insert USB (maybe try different slot ) until it does

    Many many thanks!
    I'm about to get a dual ended USB for make the process.

    Some questions:
    - I confirmed with "Device Info HW" that my X96 is "Plus2 M" (with the RTL8211F 1000Mb & 4Gb). But in the slimboxtv web there are two files: "atv" and "aosp". There are no info or explanation of what file may I download.
    - Anyone knows if this rom will give me the correct widevine for play at least 1080p on netflix app?

    Thanks!!
    Best you google - lots of info re differences. I personally like the flexibility of aosp. Try both - see what suits you best

    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
