I have tested this ROM and I can see one problem. I am not able to copy any data to USB stick using MiXplorer or any other file browser. There is no way to grant permisions to stora data on external storage or at least I couldn't find such option.

When I try to copy file to USB stick I get:

X96_Air_missing_external_disk_permissions-1.jpg


When I click OK I get:

X96_Air_missing_external_disk_permissions-2.jpg

Hi. I flashed this ROM on s905x3 box, now it doesn't boot anymore from the boot logo. USB Burning Tool does not recognize it. Tried using the Burn Card Maker with MicroSD, nothing happens. I don't get into the recovery because the button in the AV no longer works as it looks. :( Do you have any idea what I can do?

So i have Fix it - No Recovery and Bricked X96 Max Plus2 (q5x3_141 v3.0 19351)
Stock Firmware only for X96 Max Plus2 - S905X3 4GB RAM: https://mega.nz/file/a7IRWYqR#2EQQwz2kQjUTaTgK9o1w8fBbb_ZgaP5fCiZZFAJxl1k
I use this Tool: Picture 1 🙈
Short and GND: Picture 2
Make the short circuit and then plug the USB into port 3.0... Burning Tool should recognize the device and flashing can begin.

I would like to try that rom, I have P3 unit. Did I understand right: I can switch between ATV or regular Android within System? So if I would like to have ATV this day I just choose ATV, the other day I choose regular?

its different box, might not work well, or the different storage size might cause this kind of issue

    I don't think you can install TWRP on x96 air. But you can use the hinged TWRP to boot into TWRP whenever you want through the stock recovery.

    Hi, owning this box, we can install TWRP in recovery by flashing with AmlogicFlasherV1.0 and the TWRP.img which is in the archive HERE, beware it will be ROOT before.

    Update :
    - change Home for support icon themes
    - update tvsetting to bring other setting into one place
    - add more home compatible for home switching

    Hi. Thank you for sharing.

    I have been running it for a few hours and I love all the additions of features and the Android TV look (I used Mi Box S before so I prefer this look)

    I do have one problem though. On stock firmware, I was able to pass through the audio to my sound bar in kodi (this lets me listen to Dolby Atmos and other surround sound technologies). I tried everything on your rom to make it work but it doesn't seem to work at all.

    What worked in stock firmware:

    Droid settings - sound - switch it to manual - enable all the options and set DTS to 20%. Go to Kodi, go to Kodi audio settings and enable passthrough, then play a dolby Atmos or DTS file and my soundbar said "Dolby Atmos" or "DTS" whenever I played the respective file.


    In your rom:

    There are three settings apps. 1 is droid settings from stock firmware, 1 is aosp settings app from stock firmware and 1 is the new settings app with extra features.

    I have tried changing the droid settings sound options like on stock firmware but that does not work. I have tried using the new settings apps sound options (tried manual, auto, always allow etc etc) and that does not work either. I'm unable to get passthrough audio.

    I always get PCM, even in Atmos/Dolby Digital/DTS files. My sound bar supports all of these codecs, and the box can do passthrough audio as I have already tried it on the stock firmware.


    It's possible that it's due to viper4android? But I have disabled the master switch in viper as well.

    Sorry for the long post but I was trying to be as detailed as possible. Honestly, apart from this, I have zero issues with your rom. I wanted to use it as a daily driver but this sound output option is a big problem as I watch a lot of 4K movies with Atmos and DTS.

    If anyone is considering this rom but don't care about the issue I'm having, go for it. There are no other issues in this rom and is easily a daily driver. Works very well and highly recommended from my end.

    hi @Nasty_z ,
    i have apply some change.
    but i dont have sound bar , so i cannot test it,

    please try this version on repo

    Thanks, worked smooth, I just made backup through TWRP, I guess i can do restore same way?
    Yes exactly. You can restore it the same way, boot into TWRP and use the restore option.
