				DEVELOPER NOTES

Enjoy the final release of atvXperience for S905W.
This update includes the latest version of AndroidTV.
Currently the build includes various preinstalled apps:
Netflix, Amazon Prime, VLC, ADB over Ethernet, SuperSU, All Google AndroidTV Apps, 
Puffin TV Browser, Chrome and a lot more.
As usual, this release comes with atvX apps.
There's a power menu so that you can easily turn off or reboot the device.
┗━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━༻❁༺━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━┛


╔═━────────────────────────────────━▒ ۞ ▒━───────────────────────────────────────━═╗
				  IMPORTANT

Your device might not be able to boot into update mode so you'll have to go to the 
power menu and select 'Reboot to update via USB' to change or update the ROM.
This release doesn't include 'Double Press for Recents' or Status or Navbar, you have 
to navigate, just like you do in MiBox and other Android TV devices.

╚═━────────────────────────────────━▒ ۞ ▒━───────────────────────────────────────━═╝


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━▲━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
				  NEXT STEPS?

Well, idk. Maybe there will be an update so you're able to use Status/Navigation bar 
and double press for home for Recent Apps but for now, the build is usable and can be 
used as a daily driver.
Enjoy and Regards,

Hi, if you still have your box original ROM, you can extract the remotecfg (vendor/bin), remote.cfg, remote.tab1 ~ 3 (or how many there are from vendor/etc), boot into atv ,use something like root explorer to copy the new configurations into the rom, reboot and the remotes should (theoretically) work.

I found a remote config file here:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=75111560&postcount=34
in the zip-file i get the remote.conf
can I copy that to the vendor\etc folder or should i rename it to .cfg or .tab that someone mentioned?
Many thanks!

Thanks for this awesome rom!

Everything is smooth.
.
But after I flash the v4 ROM, my gen game joystick couldn't control my X96 mini anymore.

Now I want to downgrade to v2FF, but my computer couldn't identify the tv box through Amlogic usb burning tool v2.19.

Is there anyway to let my gamepad control the tv box?

I had to downgrade my TX3 Mini to v2FF and i had the same problem, I fixed it juping the pin 6 and 7 of the emmc and plug the usb cable to the box and the burning tool showed up. I believe this version modifies the boootloader beacause my screen stopped working con V4

Hello,

Great interface! I installed it via USB Burning Tool and it booted really quickly.

However, my remote doesn't work with it, and neither does using the Android TV Remote app on my phone.
It also doesn't get picked up as a device by Google Home so I could cast video to it.

Is there some sort of driver I need to install for connectivity?

Thanks for the help!

Please post the image, I need to jump the pin on my TV box as well. Thank you.

Hi - on the home screen there is a power menu. Click on that and when asked to allow ROOT access, click allow. Select the option to reboot to update via USB (make sure your device is connected to your PC and your AMLOGIC TOOL is running with the image you want loaded) and hit reboot. It will now connect to your PC and start flashing. Alternatively you can open the Terminal Emulator app in the App Drawer and type "reboot update" to reboot into USB update mode.

After pressing reboot via usb, the box access recovery.
And the AMLOGIC TOOL still not detect the box, nothing happen.

    Hi my friends. Please I need your help. I have a box TX3 mini (S905W) with 2GB RAM / 16GB internal. The board is blue (maybe clone/generic) and was release on march 2019. I tried to load this amazing firmware but It was impossible, stops after 7% with error " [0x32030201]Uboot/Get result/DiskInitial error". The only firmware that I could install was AndroidTV_7_S905W_Bluetooth_Tue_Minh_20190320.zip from a vietnamese website HERE.

    Is there anything else that I can do for install atvXv4 ROM or another ATV9 rom? And how?
    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you for your reply.
    But I don't know how to jumping the pin 6 and 7 of the emmc.
    Should I need to soldering?

    Just use a screwdriver untill pc detects the tvbox in flash mode. Then remove the jumper and just flash the rom with erase booloader and auto reboot checkbox marked.

    later i post a image if you can`t find the pin or the emmc.

    Hello,
    I can't get my remote to work.
    I have tried dozens of conf files but none of them seem to work.
    what have I done? I copied conf as well as tab and tab1 files to vendor/etc. and also to etc.

    Then a reboot each time!
    Can you help me? I have a S905W with the coloured buttons in the 2nd row from above.

    Hi, I struggled myself with the MXQ Pro, but I got mine fixed. I uploaded a bunch of remotes which worked on my devices (x96mini and MXQ Pro) and a couple of others at https://mega.nz/folder/JnxTDKTD#f3SSkmX1by3LJO7dhWx7dw

    Hope this helps.
