Hello everyone. Since my last experiment with booting the Mi Box S ROM, I've been searching a way to boot other ROM's from other devices. I needed a way easily change the DNR (Denoiser) so I could improve video quality on apps like Disney+ and I needed a way to get Auto Framerate Switch to get that smooth playback, so I found this Mecool KM1 ROM (yes, with S905X3) and I was able to boot it on my S905X device.

The performance of this ROM is great for me, DNR and Picture options are available, there's an easy way to ROOT it and you can justinstall AFRD app to get Auto Framerate Switch.


Hardware Support

This is where it gets tricky, my box has a S905X CPU with a QCA9377 and works perfect here. For now I don't have any other boxes to test but I'll be working hard with my friend @aidanmacgregor to bring more support, I also need your feedback to figure things out.

How To Install

Use Amlogic USB Burn Tool with a Male to Male USB Cable to flash the ROM, connect to the TV and wait until it boots up.


How To Root

Download the Temporary TWRP and Super SU files linked bellow and copy them to an SD Card or USB Drive.

Enable ADB Debugging on developer settings. Find your box IP Adress, for this you can go to the About Settings page and about.

Use a tool like "Minimal ADB Fastboot", connect your device through ADB and use the command "adb reboot recovery" to go to the recovery.

From this recovery install the temporary TWRP zip, after that you'll be booting to TWRP, from there you need to select USB or SD card, from there you just select the SuperSU zip.

Restart the box and you'll be rooted.

What's next

You can expect updates to this ROM.
I have plans to bring ROOT and AFRD pre-installed if there's popular demand for it.
I'm also working on getting Android 10 to boot on S905X when I can get some more free time out of college.
Considering using Telegram so we can exchange some ideas together.
I also really need your feedback and opinion.

Thanks to @ sagert from Freaktab forum for the Root method.

Thanks for the ROM. I have tried successfully on an x96 box with 1G/8G. Both the wifi and remote works well. The problem is when I tried to root the device - I can't seem to connect via adb (I have developer option and USB debugging enabled). My computer does not recognise that the device is connected (via male USB-A to male USB-A cable). It would be fantastic if you upload an image with root pre-installed.

Actually ignore the last request. I have managed to root my device after muddling through the adb over network. Thanks again for the fantastic ROM

hi, i believe this device ia actually manufactured by ZTE and just rebadged as fibrehome, i think this device wont work, seems to not like generic roms :)
Is that so??

And if i may ask,
Now my HG680P is running Marshmallow (rooted)
What can i do to upgrade from marshmallow to Pie or at least Nougat..
UBT process stopped at 7% (after "download meson1" then state "formatting", and fail/stopped right there)

As my friend have a HG680P unit which is running stock Android Pie (from manufacturer)..
And is already run rooted Pie now..

We do cross-check both device, and it's turn out both device is identical..

Thanks for your efforts!

Tested on A95X B7N (905x 1/8 Realtek 8616 or 8618 - can't recall), some observations:
1. Performance is quite good
2.Wifi does not work
3. Original remote supplied with box does not work. However a generic remote from a old S805 MXQ box (512 ram) works perfectly
4. EAC3 Audio does not output anything through Plex, regardless of Sound settings (incl. Advanced) or Plex settings (common for my box at least, workaround possible).
5. HDR works.

Herkese merhaba. Mi Box S ROM'u başlatmayla ilgili son denememden beri, diğer cihazlardan diğer ROM'ları başlatmanın bir yolunu arıyordum. Disney+ gibi uygulamalarda video kalitesini iyileştirebilmek için DNR'yi (Denoiser) kolayca değiştirebilecek bir yola ihtiyacım vardı ve bu pürüzsüz oynatmayı elde etmek için Otomatik Kare Hızı Anahtarını almanın bir yoluna ihtiyacım vardı, bu yüzden bu Mecool KM1 ROM'u buldum (evet, S905X3 ile) ve onu S905X cihazımda başlatmayı başardım.

Bu ROM'un performansı benim için harika, DNR ve Resim seçenekleri mevcut, KÖK yapmanın kolay bir yolu var ve Otomatik Kare Hızı Anahtarı almak için sadece AFRD uygulamasını yükleyebilirsiniz.


Donanım Desteği

İşte işin zorlaştığı yer burası, kutumda QCA9377'li bir S905X CPU var ve burada mükemmel çalışıyor. Şimdilik test edecek başka kutum yok ama daha fazla destek getirmek için arkadaşım @aidanmacgregor ile çok çalışacağım, ayrıca bazı şeyleri halletmek için geri bildiriminize ihtiyacım var.

Nasıl kurulur

ROM'u flaş etmek, TV'ye bağlamak ve açılana kadar beklemek için Erkek - Erkek USB Kablosu ile Amlogic USB Burn Tool'u kullanın.


Nasıl Köklenir

Aşağıda bağlantısı verilen Geçici TWRP ve Super SU dosyalarını indirin ve bir SD Karta veya USB Sürücüye kopyalayın.

Geliştirici ayarlarında ADB Hata Ayıklamayı etkinleştirin. Kutu IP Adresinizi bulun, bunun için Ayarlar Hakkında sayfasına ve hakkında gidebilirsiniz.

"Minimal ADB Fastboot" gibi bir araç kullanın, cihazınızı ADB üzerinden bağlayın ve kurtarmaya gitmek için "adb reboot recovery" komutunu kullanın.

Bu kurtarma işleminden geçici TWRP zip dosyasını yükleyin, bundan sonra TWRP'ye önyükleme yapacaksınız, oradan USB veya SD kartı seçmeniz gerekiyor, oradan sadece SuperSU zip dosyasını seçiyorsunuz.

Kutuyu yeniden başlatın ve kökleneceksiniz.

Sıradaki ne

Bu ROM için güncellemeler bekleyebilirsiniz.
Popüler talep olursa, ROOT ve AFRD'yi önceden yüklenmiş olarak getirmeyi planlıyorum.
Ayrıca, üniversiteden biraz daha boş zaman bulabileceğim zaman, Android 10'un S905X'te açılmasını sağlamaya çalışıyorum.
Birlikte fikir alışverişinde bulunabilmemiz için Telegram kullanmayı düşünüyoruz.
Ayrıca görüşlerinize ve fikirlerinize gerçekten ihtiyacım var.

İndirilenler

TWRP ve SuperSU ekli körük.

Çok teşekkürler

@aidanmacgregor'a ROM'un paketten çıkarılması ve yeniden paketlenmesine yardımcı olduğu ve bir sonraki güncelleme için benimle birlikte çalıştığı için teşekkürler.

Root yöntemi için Freaktab forumundan @ sagert'e teşekkürler.

Sağladığı TWRP için @ ViT'ye teşekkürler.

Sağladığı Amlogic Araçları için @Ricky Divjakovski'a teşekkür ederiz.​

merhaba Diego mecool ki pro için de bir rom yapabilir misin?
