I appreciate your assistance in trying to give me the tools to create the things I need. But the main reason I wanted Aidans TWRP backup of v7.1, is because it's confirmed to work.

I'm trying to troubleshoot my recovery image, so I need to use the process of elimination.


I've now lost access to TWRP recovery after trying to flash the Burn Tool images @mAtvXk uploaded for me. Does anyone know how to restore TWRP access without a USB cable?

Anyone got any working links for Aidan's Android TV 7.5? The YouTube vidoe appears to have been removed so no links there and non on the Wordpress site. I did attempt a search of the forum but without looking through all 40 pages I couldn't find anything.

Checking after I post this reply the v9 forum though at least one of my boxes needs 7.5 as far as I can tell.

Sort of answered this myself after trying at least a 5th time but in a different browser...

Just managed to get to Androidfile host site which I couldn't do in Firefox for some reason and just found the same error getting to Aidans ROMS. However, I tried the link again to v9 (not tried the others yet) and it works. Possibly an error with the host or my connection but not sure.

Thank you. Downloading now.

Not completely sure it will work from looking at all the info. It's a Trongle S2 box I'm attempting to work on which looks like it has S905 chip. Any suggestions how I confirm the chip? Opening it up is one thing I guess but I don't want to do that. Startup sequence says S905 and I haven't (yet) found a way to verify with software or settings the exact chip.

I have been successfully been using v7.5 on a Leelbox Q2 2g/8g with S905x AP6330 version.
To fix the Bluetooth problem I used TWRP to remove some extra files in the bluetooth folder and bluetooth now works with no problems. One problem still persists the box does not play sound from certain HD Streams using the Xfinity Stream APP. It's like there is missing decoder or codec file. This is similar to what was happening on Disney+.What was the fix for Disney+ sound? Thanks for this great ROM and all your help.

Hey All - I have a Transpeed X3 Plus and I've been unsuccessful getting it to connect to USB_Burn. I don't even hear windows detect it when I plug it in. Do I have to go USB A - USB A? My laptop has a USB- C and I've went USBC-USBA, but nothing. My thoughts were, usbc-usba should have been ok, but maybe not. Thoughts? I've searched google and the forums, but didn't find anything.

Hi Aidan, thanks for the netflix apk, it is working fine on v7.4.

I have a question: is your rom compatible with Emuelec? I ask because I can't get emuelec to boot and I Tried several times.
Edit: I finally got Emuelec to boot, so I can confirm this amazing rom works fine with Emuelec.

Thanks Aidan!!!!
how you did this? im trying to boot with emuelec 3.4 and i cant

    FAQ (WIP)

    Q. Netflix wont work from play store
    A The TV Version of Netflix needs Widevine Level 1 DRM, This cannot be added to your device with a firmware, FIXED IN LATEST VERSION PATCHED NETFLIX PREINSTALLED

    Q. Amazon Prime Wont Work

    A. Like Netflix Install the mobile app, the TV version needs Widevine Level 1

    Q. Disney+ No Sound
    A. Fixed in v7.2

    Q. Root Switch Wont Work
    A. Unfortunately v7.3 is always rooted and the switch doesn't work (I may offer unrooted versions if there is demand)

    Screenshots On The Website

    If you have one of these devices that really struggle taking any custom ROM, sometimes these are MXQ devices (there are so many clones of these devices) and they may have a locked bootloader or it needs a DTB that isn't common or known, there are some ROMs that have saved some people before, these are only if no other custom ROMs will work for you and are a last resort :)

    See this post:
    Hi, Why should one pick this 7.5 version over the 8.0 one? Thank you
    This one did it because 8 does not support remote control and does not support the same set of keys in BT keyboard. Only 7.5 can be operable, but true, the both works and 8 has mutch better GUI.
    Ok here is TWRP backup of v7.1, Can you test this and let me know it works properly please? this can be installed over the top of v7 using TWRP. Simply place the "TWRP" folder onto a USB Drive (See Readme Instructions.txt)


    Installed and working fine. Thank you !
    Glad you used the Boot Animation, hoping more devs would include it in their builds ?
