S912 is a complex beast, there can be several reasons for a failed install, you could try my s912 roms (android 9) there are versions for ddr3 & ddr4, LPDDR3 and Slow EMMC versions you could try those, also USB burn tool is install method I reccomend as SD Card install method can fail alot and with no info on what stage it failed at & USBBurm Tool Can Unbrick your box from a bad flash
I was considering trying your rom. Not sure which variant to use. How can I tell. I have had this box apart many times now is there a app to check. And thank you

ddr type can be found out by searching for the numbers on the ram chips, you can try this app for ram info (DDR# & 4 or LPDDR3)

teh 100 vs 1000lan is ethernet speed if its 100mbs or 1BG ethernet, if ethernet dosnt work on the lan100 version then try the lan1000 version

and slow emmc is if you have issues like random rebooting, or someone had problems with always going back to the many and slow emmc fixed it

i have same twrp as posted from this thread for t95z plus installed on box backup from box in fact i have two of these boxes and can not get poison to run on either one i have reinstalled from backup mutipal times. im lost

Sorry to hear that. I have no further ideas, as this worked for me on my t95z plus.
As sugested by aidanmacgregor you can try atv9 versions.
I try a slimbox version at the moment and I am very lucky with this one.
You can also take a look on this one:
even t95z plus remote is working. Only thing that is not working for me was LAN.

    Installation
    NOTE: If your device is not on android 7.1.2 you must flash stock 7.1.2 with USB burning tool to update the bootloader.

    USB Burning Tools can be downloaded from here.

    If you have the T95Z device (Normal Ram, not LP Ram version), I have modified the Stock Firmware to include Custom Recovery (TWRP) already, there is no need to flash Custom Recovery if you flash the modified Stock 7.1.2 Firmware below. Just boot into Recovery and Flash Poison Rom.

    Here is the T95Z 7.1.2 Modified Stock Firmware with TWRP pre-installed for 2/16 - Download here

    Here is T95Z 7.1.2 Modified Stock Firmware with TWRP pre-installed for 3/32 - Download here


    If you have one of the newer T95Z boxes with the LP Ram and for some reason your Firmware version is not 7.1.2, you will need to flash the LP Ram version 7.1.2 of Firmware, this is unmodified Stock Firmware, meaning that twrp is not pre-installed.

    Here is the LP Ram Version T95Z 7.1.2 Stock Firmware for 3/32: Download here

    Here is the LP Ram Version T95Z 7.1.2 Stock Firmware for 2/16: Download here

    NOTE: For Non T95Z devices, you must have TWRP recovery installed on your device, if your device is not the T95Z and you have your own devices Stock 7.1.2 Firmware installed, you can flash the Custom Recovery (TWRP) for S912 devices below.

    2gb Ram S912 TWRP can be downloaded from here:
    3gb Ram S912 TWRP can be downloaded from here.


    NOTE: v3.0+ is compatible with 1/8, 1/16, 2/8, 2/16, 3/16 and 3/32 variants.
    One Package for them all

    1. Reboot into recovery
    2. Perform a Standard Wipe (Click wipe, swipe to wipe)
    3. Select Install and Install the Poison zip file
    4. Enjoy Poison Rom!

    WARNING: On first boot, after Boot Video plays, the screen will stay black for up to 5 mins, wait until the launcher appears and finishes installing apps (10 min) before using Rom.
