4.3.1 unofficial has no sound on my device (tx3 mini s905w, A/2, 2/16, 2017 model). SPDIF audio output doesn't work and also no clock display. I tried that clock+display patch but most likely it works on newer versions of the device, not mine. With this ROM you can install Magisk+xposed perfectly, so I don't care for the display but only for SPDIF. If anyone has a suggestion/solution for this, please post.

Fake (pirate device), TX9 - S905W - p281 - 2 Gb RAM - 16 Gb internal storage.

True, I and many other people were deceived with this purchase. your hardware is actually a TX3 with the configurations mentioned above.

Hi y'all! I'm trying to "figure out" which atvX ROM build to keep/use on my box Alfawise S95 [Amlogic S905W (TX3 Mini basically)], based on existing versions atvX 4.x and/or atvX 5 beta, but I've stumbled upon a problem that I want to share and see if anyone has some enlightnment to provide... ^_^

Box always needs "TX3_Mini_Clock+Display+Patch.zip" patch, to restore mini display clock/status [in some builds it kept "BOOT" displayed (even after booting...), atvX 2.x builds in the case, but after the patch all went well], flashing it via TWRP... I'm using "TWRP-3.2.2.0-P.zip" build/version - ref. https://forum.atvxperience.com/viewtopic.php?p=22575#p22575

My problem in this case, it's based on the fact that Android 9 [even previous builds (8.x I guess)] keeps the box data encrypted, and TWRP cannot access/mount "/system" partition to flash patch on latest atvX builds aka Android 9...

I've realized that "Screen Lock" feature asks to be set-up after installing any ROM versions, but I can't select no option/pattern [even using an alternative air-mouse (despite the IR remote)], and I guess that's what TWRP expects to use "twrp decrypt <code_based_on_pattern>" - this never happened on atvX builds 2.x because data was not yet encrypted on Android 7.1.2... allowing the patch to be applied.

So now I leave my doubts/questions about all this:

• Patch is only supported on Android 7 aka atvX 2.x?
• Does patch dep.'s/lib.'s code work on Android 9 aka atvX 4.x and/or atvX 5 beta or not even compatible?
• Does TWRP work effectively on latest atvX builds/versions, even when not using any screen lock, or even this - decrypt function indeed exist on those TWRP alternative builds/versions or not at all?

    				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,

    Thanks for the fast answer!
    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!

    Hi, have a look at the forum thread here: https://forum.atvxperience.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2451&start=30 for details on the remote configuration.

    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.
