USB_Burning_Tool v 2.0.0 runs on GT1Mini probably also suitable for GT1Mini-2 Beelink boxes react differently to OTG

1). You connect the cable and it is visible immediately
2). Another needs to hold the reset button and connect the usb
3). My GT1Mini works for 3 seconds after plugging and then disconnects from USB_Burning_Tool

installation method:

a). run USB_Burning_Tool on pc
b). connect usb to pc add .img and set it as shown in the SLIMBOX instruction
c). once you've done everything hit "START" in USB_Burning_Tool
d). now connect the box and wait for the process to finish
e). do not use USB 3.0 for this purpose
A). If you have the https://www.widevine.com/ license, you will lose it by installing this firmware, but if you don't care about widevine it then SLIMBOX is a good choice.

@superceleron, from freaktab, also made an excellent multi rom one for many models 905x2 & 905x3
Can someone confirm if has installed Slimbox in gt1mini2 please? I am sure I am doing everything okay, I am so bored. I mean my tv box works fine, but the interface is just awfull. and I don't like that the tv box is rooted and I can't turn oof the root. even with developers options, there is not an option to turn the root off. and I can´t install apps I need. I NEED HELP

rebooted and still doesnt work. It says abnormal status in drive status. Do i need USB audio enabled or something? My setup is with an hdmi cable and the sound is processed through a receiver. For movies and tv shows i dont really need viper but for youtube, deezer and similar apps for music it should work or am i missing something??
I didn't enable anything.
My box is directly connected to my TV.
Maybe your receiver is to blame.

Hey, can anyone help ? I bought a x96max + S905x3 box sold as a 4/32gb and received it today . took it straight out of the box turned it on and saw the crap android 9 launcher and the crap stock firmware .
Went to flash @SlimHouse ATV rom for the X96max + it flashed OK and when I went to reboot , NOTHING , just a black screen .
On further inspection I opened the box up and the cheeky little fookers have only just sold me a box stamped on exterior 4/32gb , but the board and chip is a 2/16gb .
I don't know if I can recover from this .
If I leave the box on for 10 minutes the blue boot will come on but its not showing on the burntool. I've not even got recovery now . Any ideas , apart from a beermat or book stop? The box IP is showing up on Ethernet could I possibly install firmware from sdcard via telnet/putty ??

I'm usually an Allwinner/Amazon dude so maybe one of the guys familiar with amlogic could help .

Thanks in advance , and as always its greatly appreciated

Thank you for your response, unfortunately I had no way of backing up/restoring anything, I couldn't get twrp. I took it straight out of the box brand new, and tried to flash a rom meant for the 4/32gb edition of the X96max +. My box (even though stamped with 4/32 stickers) was only a 2/16gb and this caused a hard brick.

To solve the matter I had to short out pins and reinstall the amlogic driver then ran Slims rom through the tether in UBT.
I then patched the boot with magisk, flashed 21.3.zip and no dm verity and we have a fully working box now.
Thank you for your input, it's appreciated

Can you write how you managed to correctly upload Magisk? I am asking for instructions.

Sure no problem first I flashed the slim 10.4 and then used slim recovery from USB to twrp flash boot partition of the rom with https://drive.google.com/file/d/1d0VNjGuwELn7ITrfkujnTtEwpSEqk2l6/view?usp=sharing (unzip and you'll have the files)
which patched the boot partition , without rebooting and staying in TWRP I then flashed 20.3 full zip and then no dm verity zip, and then booted into system os. Once I verified I had root I rebooted to twrp and flashed magisk 21.3.

edit : @pspablo check the below post for update if you require

Yes you can install Magisk through TWRP by flashing the image of magisk_patched_new.img by selecting the boot partition. BEFORE you have to delete the root by always flashing in TWRP UPDATE-unSU-signed.zip
This is version 20.3 of Magisk, after you must update it by downloading the ZIP version 20.4 from the Magisk Manager application or by downloading it HERE. And then flash the ZIP with TWRP.
hey i managed to root my x96max + last night with your old image , now i will Reflash with UBT and use this one.


Yourself or anyone else in the thread wouldn't happen to know how to change the bootanimation on 10.4?
While it was a good gesture in timing with the build release It's just not Xmas anymore.... The zip isn't in system/media were It normally is.


Thanks

Regards

I read on 4pda that blue LED can be disabled by this command:
Code:
echo 0 >/sys/class/leds/blue/brightness
but it only switches the blue LED for a couple of seconds and then it turns on again.
Any permanent solution for both blue and red LEDs?

    11.1 is out. I think slimbox should sincerely consider in providing their updates via "OTA update" or something similar inside the android eco-system without the need of brute force installation, given their updates are regular!!!

    Anyway nice job ;)

    Disable Viper
    I have one box running 10.4. in the beginning only just after booting the box up did the screen have the white border flash two or three times. But lately after the recent Google software update from the Play store it's doing what the op said, while watching a movie in an app it'll flash a few times randomly I have no idea what is triggering it or what's causing it , but it's happening a half dozen a dozen times a day now while watching the box where it only used to happen just after booting up. Something changed , most likely it's in the Google updates that have come out in the last few months there's been three different updates of webview, Google, Android TV remote, Android TV core ...

    I would like to know what causes it also, I have turned on afrd again but that don't change in the middle of a movie and my TV displays the change that's not happening with the white flash boarder.
    Maybe it's ViPER4AndroidFX related. Disable Viper in apps. If that doesn't work try to disable the system bars in slimbox settings. I have them all disabled but sometimes i enable the top one to monitor temps, but the autohide setting doesn't work on some video apps , so when watching videos i disable everything in system bars.

    No not yet. My box is now not working because I cannot flash anything. Did you find any other solution?
    Search on Google NAND Chip Mask ROM, you will have to shorten 02 pins of your device's nand for the PC to recognize

    That would be great.

    Where did you find out that 11.1 is out?

    I can't even download 11.0 because of google volume restriction.

    Hi @SlimHouse

    I'm a contributor to NOVA Video Player, and we've been reported this issue: https://github.com/nova-video-player/aos-AVP/issues/393
    This issue is a bug in your ROM, it declares leanback/television support, without actually providing framework for it.

    In this case, you're lacking TvProvider (PRODUCT_PACKAGES += TvProvider). But you should be inheriting device/google/atv/products/atv_system.mk really.

    While you're there, you should probably also include LiveTv app, so you get acess to tv input services, like haystack live tv.

    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
