Misc tweaks & adjustments

Im very happy with how this turned out, please install and let me know if it works for you have any suggestion

Bug: Issue with root, if anyone knows about pre rooted images advice would be good

Hello. I really liked your custom firmware. Everything works well. There is no bluetooth in the settings, you can install it or give firmware with working bluetooth. Loved but lacks bluetooth.:good:

Yes i can look at adding bluetooth, a few hours maybe
my box has no bluetooth so i cant test that functionality specifically so you would need to test it and let me know
also what box did you install on?

Bluetooth Version Now Added!!!

Great custom Rom, I tried flash to HG680-P which using Armlogic S950x, 2GB/8GB, unfortunately I got error on 7% with error message "[0x32030201]Uboot/Get result/DiskInitial error

Any advice regarding case above?

Ps: After that error, I tried flash HG680-P stock rom, and success, i mean i think there is no related with software version of flashing tool or usb to usb cable.

Any feedback will really appreciated

hi :) Try this version of USB Burning Tool its the one ive been using for 6 months
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1oS0WAjJ-u9IaKb4GSd8zqHL4VbCHjhiW

Also when connecting the box to flash click START before you connect the box

but sounds like it dont like the uboot if you have a working ROM it may be possible to take thew uboot out of it and insert it this ROM

Hi,

I am very new to this, but this looks great. I was wondering whether you could tell me if this would also work for a S905 chipset device? I have a Trongle S2 on 5.1.1 so would like to upgrade, but cannot find any official firmware for it. Thanks!

Hi, i dont think it has anything to do with the build prop, more lightly either its a drm issue or it could be a codec issue, Android tv seems to have issues with D+ alot of the time

You could maybe try the settings and turning off any audio processing, i dont have Disney plus so i cant really test that specifically

aldo read somwhere if you start downloading what you want to watch then play it that maight work as a workaround, Good luck

Hi All,

this image is working great for my NPET s905x 2G Box, as Wifi and Bluetooth are now working again!
Great work, man!

One question remain: How do I get Amazon prime working on this box, as I cant get any movie to load. it says : "Something is wrong here!"?

Cheers,
Cromatic

Hi ,Thanks, i think it has to do with the device not having Widevine L1 certifacation, its the reason netflix wont work either, you could try the mobile version of the app as that (as far as i know) only needs Widevine L3 (wich this rom supports) the prime and netflix (TV Verions) wont work due to this, i dont have a prime or netflix account to test the mobile versoins, if it works let me know please
