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

The device's display screen and remote control, the device's bluetooth and wifi are working
Okay have read/viewed all post

No FrontDisplay/LED /clock
you will not have.
As well as remote control compatible
These are 2 most common issues.

These functions are mapped to T527 Vendor...
Slimbox does not have that China Box to Port/Test
So we test a file that is closest in Hardware to the T527..
Ethernet
Wifi
Blutooth

No front display is not that bad.
I prefer it that way.

I use K400 plus keyboard to navigate China Box
Also turn on CeC in settings maybe your TV remote will work it often does.
Or use air mouse or other to navigate

Good luck

Happy Testing

Okay that is alot of extra work.
This is why I use K 400plus or / other
Then iam up n running/testing right away.
Maybe follow mAtvXk suggestions.
Extract from working 12.2 n replace.

Also if you are familiar with Coreelec
There is repositories for remote control

Amlogic remote.conf

Or maybe is Meson IR
You will need KEYMAP file
rc_maps.cfg etc.

Credit to Betatester

More good luck

Happy Testing

You are doing something wrong, buy air mouse as was suggested, or even better X96 Max plus remote controller from AliXpress, as you have already tested almost all SBX firmwares for this device.

Any particular reason that you don't use SBX 12.2 ported firmware if everything works ?
sbx 12.2 working software atv pie sbx i want new software

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 did bricked my box once, but I was able to reflash ROM i mentioned earlier. This rom worked, I got logo, android animation, but before everything, before letting me to set wifi, there is message (and picture) on the screen guiding me to setup bluetooth remote. As I mentionrd before I dont have bluetooth remote, only Infra Red. And this is dead end for settning box. I tried several Roms, few of them partialy worked (wifi did not work, bluetooth, and remote, IR remote) after attaching USB keyboard, I was able to install some apk, but that is it. It is obviesly that is not rom for my Mecool KM9 pro 2Gb/16Gb box. If you have some other rom, or some advice what to do it is highly appreciable

Give me all the specs for the box and open it up and give me pics of both sides of the board and I'll see if I can find the right ROM for it.

Can someone help with TWRP and Magisk ? Maybe step by step instructions on how to install TWRP and magisk permanently.

My device is A95X F3 with minislimtv version: 028.2. I can run twrp from this guide

Instruction :

1. Download TWRP .
2. Copy to SD card or flash drive.
3. We go into the stock recovery.
4. We move to the item " Apple update from EXT "
5. Then to " Update from sdcard or Update from udisk " depending on the location of the downloaded TWRP .
6. Find the downloaded TWRP and select it.

How can I make it permanent to boot twrp recovery or is it not possible ?

Also how can I install magisk so I can use it to hide some apps ? I tried to patch the boot image from twrp and patch it from magisk but nothing happened. It does not work

Just installed latest aosp 15.4 on my HK1 X3 1000MB - tried with flash not tcked so I could keep data. Previously not had any issues with this soft method. Flashed OK but root wouldnt install. Reflashed with flash ticked - all good just a bit more work to setup again. Thanks for the regular updates of this excellent firmware.

Here it is. This is my android box. Top and bottom.
Try this ROM it's the only one I could find that I think should work on your box. That board being a 2GB+16GB is quite rare.

    Apps like aida 64
    HW+
    CPU-Z
    Don't always display true values

    Best is to take box apart
    Physically examine/view chipset/PCB

    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..

    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

    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
