no,
but ugoos much better and worth formatting

to keep apps configured, use titanium backup app,
after backing up with titanium, copy the titanium folder that is in the internal memory to SDcard or pendrive

after putting Ugoos, put titanium folder back and install the app

and restore apps with date
and it works ok
Ok, thanks. Tell me, can I install ugos from sdcard? And what with updates? Every time I have to format internal memory?

SD card:
You would have to convert Level 1 with Vtx Kitchen (V5?), then flash with TWRP. I'm not sure of the exact. process.
(Best to do >Erase Data< ..system errors can happen otherwise. :rolleyes:

Keep apps and data:

Titainium Backup Pro and Alpha Backup Pro are good tools to preserve apps and data.
-Titainium, you may need to increase the backup size in settings to save most data. I also suggest >Uncompressed< method.

-Alpha Backup Pro, ..also very good (I utilize both).

* Make multiple copies of backup data to SD card and USB stick ... incase of errors.
** All data will not be guaranteed to be preserved:
  1. Adguard serial
  2. Gallery
  3. Mx Player codecs
  4. MyBible
  5. Screenshots
  6. Vpn account data
  7. others..
*** All apps will not be restored, because of SAI(?) (need to re-install via Playstore):
  1. AppSales
  2. Flipp
  3. Microsoft Launcher
  4. OfficeSuite?
  5. some games
  6. Youtube
  7. others..
These problems stem from big business concerns for your Peace of mind and Security.

Huawei P Smart+ 2019
Can you provide more information?

  • Board version ?
  • Memory type/amount ?
  • Firmware ?
  • Tool version ?
  • Error code ?
Someone may be able to help, given the proper info. :unsure:

(Over 7% is likely partition error)
((Do no discount cable problems, antivirus interruption or O.S. USB power-down during Flash Process)).
P212 board, 2/16 gb memory, USB tool 2.20 and 2,18. Flashed atvx v5 after stock, now either 'lowpow' or USB setup error. Most of the times around 7%, made it to 88% twice. Stock rom loads till 100% with the same tool.

** If you have proper firmware for your China Box.**
Try another computer.
USB Tool v 2.17(?)
Otherwise:
Restart computer fresh... do not wait too long. USB ports can power down.
Disable: internet, antivirus, firewall, defrag software.
Try a different USB port.
  • If you have the proper firmware(?), try flashing.
  • If it fails you should still be in Mask mode, do not unplug.
  • Press >Stop< and >Start< again.
  • If it fails, press >Stop< and load same. Press >Start<
  • If it fails... press >Stop< and plug in power and press >Start< again (Chance that USB port will be disabled till another new firmware ). :cautious:
  • If it fails you should still be in Mask mode. Load and flash last working firmware to prevent a brick.

Info from: kaspeer0 (4pda)

In order not to get "Key file configuration wrong".
  • In the USB_Burning_Tool folder, copy the license folder from this archive license.zip
    In order not to swear (Key file configuration wrong).
  • Open the program and add the firmware file.
License.zip

I installed the Ugoos version on an X96Max Plus 2 AI but I don't have ethernet 1000mbs, only 100mbs, anyone with this problem?
So many versions.... (other devs dropped support for this box) o_O

You do not mention which Ugoos mod revision.
Website updated today with X96Max Plus (newer /fixes?).

I have x96 Max Plus 5 (2+16) version with Amlogic W150S1 wifi chip. Have tried 6-7 different firmwares including Slimbox firmware and all have the same problem. 2.4Ghz wifi is TOO SLOW and most of the times is useless.
Last night, i found a new firmare dated 20220110.....tested it, and problem with wifi is 95% fixed, but USB3.0 port is not working now. Can Slimbox developer take a look at this firmware and try to build his own Slimbox TV firmware for x96 MAX Plus 5 with fixed 2.4Ghz wifi?

I can confirm: mecool km3 (2020) corporate/rare editions with mtk WiFi chip from mecool km1 runs awesome smooth with Your x96max old revision v311P ATV firmware 🔝 (mecool km3 with KM1 2T2R V1.2 boards (atv android v10 out of the box) (X2, DDR3 I guess) (i have tried all of the ugoos ports too, but wifi never works) i guess because of the old ddr3 chip combination?

with your awesome last build Bluetooth isn’t working so the original remote control is not recognized too) but I don’t care 😂 because of my air mouse remote)(sleep works just via internal sleep button , wakeup works) but led is permanently red (i tried EVERYTHING)

Pretty fast and stable (iptv, Netflix in uhd and Amazon Prime, Perfect for daily use)👏🏽

It’s the best Android TV firmware mod ever (not only for this **** mecool km3 box versions)

I made a package of new additionally mods/apps/tweaks on google drive maybe you like some of it too (text me)

Big up and my respect to the slimbox tv software crew !

Best wishes and Thank You for Your hard Work!

After trying, trying, googling and trying, I found a tip that worked for me. Change the temp range in USB burning tool from 20-40 to 10-80. It then flashed to 100 % at once 😊
Thanks for the support 👍🏼😊

    You are on Pie rom or ATV rom? In which voice search works?
    It works on both. I'm on ATV. What I found was I have a G 30s air mouse with microphone. But the microphone only works if in the 2.4 gigahertz mode not the IR remote mode. If that helps.

    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
    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
