I have a G9CX box and the remote control does not work after the flash ... I have downloaded the remote.conf file which worked in the original firmware. how can it be replaced? filesystem /system/config is read only :(

Replace in system/ect the remote.conf file, use a file app that supports root :)

unfortunately copying the file didn't help. still does not respond to the remote control. possible problem with IR interface driver? one more question - always after restart the screen resolution is set to 720p and there is no sound. after manually setting to 1080p, the picture and sound are ok. what is the problem?

Hi aidan,
thank you for the excellent ROM (v7.5), flashed it onto Mini M8S II 2gb/8gb. everything runs smoothly with working wifi, rcu, bluetooth etc, apps install quicker, whole system seems much faster all round.
I use a different launcher and set the 'home' in settings to launch from that, but it always defaults back to the leanback launcher, managed to overcome the problem by installing my preferred launcher then moved the leanback version from system so that i could uninstall it, machine now boots to my installed launcher by default.
Busy trying your V6 Custom Android TV 9 ROM S905X which also appears to work ok without any RCU, WiFi or Bluetooth problems, the launcher also works much better apart from a couple of apps which appear ok in the app draw but dont show in the 'ad to favourites' list. :)

hi this is bacause there are diffrences between android & android TV, to get "NON TV" apps to show up in favorites (along side TV apps in leanback launcher) you can use a "shortcut maker" this creats a tiny app (its a ahortcut) to your non TV app and adds it to leanback :)

all the other streaming apps i use can be added to favourites ok and i can access the ones that don't through the app draw so not a problem, will leave well alone while its working ok but thanks for the tip :)

Hello. Sorry I'm little confused. I have MXQ PRO 4K S905W 1GB+8GB BOARD S905XQ4_V3.0. What version is for me? Where to download? I already tried almost all version from V4 folder on Google Drive. All of them stoped on 7% formating [0x32030201]Uboot/Get result/DiskInitial error. Even after NAND PIN clear I have this same error. I'm able to burn TX3Mini-20181210.img as example.

Thx for replay.

hi. is ther a way to get Peacock tv working? it exits to launcher after Peacock splash screen. thanks

I've never tried this app, it may need android 8 and newer or it could need a Google certified device (in Google play store settings, about, it may need "this device is Google play certified" my android TV 9 rom is Google play certified but atv 7 isn't :)

    Hi,
    great Image.
    To fix magisk install problem just delete ".backup" folder in boot ramdisk (initrd.img).
    Latest Magisk (v22) works. If you need Xposed framework try Riru with Dreamland.

    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
    https://aidansrom.ml

    NONE OF MY ROMS AND NO OTHER ROMS WORK?
    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:

    Glad you used the Boot Animation, hoping more devs would include it in their builds ?

    I tested all the older RROMs with the same result(wifi turned off). :crying:
    The stock rom had the wifi working. When i started to use some custom rom, the wifi never worked again. One option is return to the stock rom but the version available in h96tvbox.com seems to be corrupted.

    Honestly i think your best option would be to just used wired, most of the android boxes i have come across have awful wifi chips, the wifi card on my 2 current boxes works but both suffer from poor speeds, and constant drop outs, i would highly reccomend using ethernet, you can use powerline adapters to get wired internet to any plug socket thats what i use for tv box and my xbox
