I would Like to also ask, if you have a solution for an updating box to last security version? I see my box S905X Aidans ATV, Version 7.1.2 , patch level 20.03.2019

Many thanks to @aidanmacgregor for your great job sir. Burned using amlogic burn tool 3.1 via USB to TX3 pro 1g/8g without any problem and works great. Everything is quite snappy, except latest Youtube app crashes a few times when started playing a video so I installed S Youtube as replacement and now working well. The other issues is the top most recommendation bar is always empty, even though I've enabled all options. So it always display the cloud icon. Any ideas how the recommendation bar can work?

is your USB cable good? could be too long or thin or be a power only cable :)
thanks for reply @aidanmacgregor

Finally i got solution, cable side no problem, cable is works well,
problem i never short well the NAND pin,
now i use good screw driver to short the pin, then works well Mask ROM Mode.


NAND Chip Mask ROM Mode Short Location:
FORESEE (NCEMASD9-08G)
(Amlogic s905x m9c pro = 1gbRam/8gb ROM)

if anyone "USB HUB not detected" in USB burning tool?
check below photo for my reference, works well.

Thank you sir for your solution. I've tried it and it works. Now the recommendations bar showing suggested videos from s youtube after installing s youtube bridge app and enabled it. Anyway, is it possible to change the default launcher to something like nova launcher or other?

Hi

with my vorke z6 plus

I installed [v7] Aidan's ROM [S912] [ATV 9] [LPDDR3] which has the latest android tv launcher etc... but some issues that I need help because
1 - It doesn't transfer the sound to headphone by bluetooth; indeed the rom find the headphone by bluetooth, it is associated and connected but no sound from my headset
2- the cursor of my remote or my remote is not fully compatible with the rom, how to fix the remote control or do I need to buy a new one and which one?
3- how to install Twrp recovery and root those atv rom because I need to patch display led in this atv rom

NB: this post and previous one are the same, I need a android tv rom for my vorke z6 plus which has led display patched, bluetooth and latest google play store, chrome and android home

Dear Aidan if you can add bluetooth fix for the lpddr3 versions and better compatibility for the remote especially the cursor i will appreciate a lot

thank

no way to switch launcher with official android tv :) can try installing an alternative and then using root to remove leanback launcher from system/app or system/priv-app

1- intrestin, i dont have an s912 device to test on,

2- any usb android remote should work, if you need the stanby button maybe ont that can learn from your current remotes power button, otherwise disable sleep and standby in hte screensaver settings and use any wireless usb remotre

3-TWRP can be booted from a zip file, you boot to recovery, hen choose update from udisk, choose the twrp zip and it will boot temporary twrp

what wifi/bt chip do you have?

Forget 2 and 3 , a usb mouse fixed the issue
About wifi bt I think is wifi ap6335A for wifi (bt i don't know)
Is it helpful?

Is there a version for tegra chip like tf300t? And for s905 like leelbox s1?

no problem

ok here are 3 roms that work on devices that have had issues flashing my ROM and almost any other rom they have tried, try ATVX MXQ Special first, if not then the try the others

https://mega.nz/folder/QkZTmaZa#iaFEG4McZUPgz1j3kINW3A

Let me know if it works and can take it from there

Thanks for the great work.
I have a question: These 3 roms are with twrp installed and pree-rooted? If so it could be a problem for me, as I use AlexElec from sd card and apparently twrp does not allow booting from sd.
My device is Mxq s905x 1 / 8gb (I think it's a clone); the box is all black and with only the writing "MXQ" on the top.
Thanks so much

edit: I tried to flash the 3 roms, but you can't install any of the three roms, it returns an error at 4%. I also tried the alternate version (post # 355), but to no avail. Also now android 6 stock does not start anymore, the "s905x" logo remains fixed. Fortunately I can start the AlexElec 3.3.1 version via sd
Tomorrow I will post some pictures of the mainboard, maybe someone can give me some advice. Thank you

hi, as far as i know the Coreelec Leberelec kernels wont work but i could be wrong, i havent tried core elec, i did rul lebreelec a few yaerss ago

The prerogative to install on CoreElec 19.1 sd with 4.19 matrix kernel is to have android 7. On my android box mxq 1/8 gb s905x I was unable to start it. Instead LibreElec version 10 kodi 19.1 kernel 5.x nightly, strangely it starts perfectly; the only problem is the wifi which is not recognized, but the lan works.

    "Sorry i dont think it will, think your S905D"
    Thanks. The firmware got up well. But the tuner is not defined. But it is still better than it was.

    FAQ (WIP)

    Q. Netflix wont work from play store
    A The TV Version of Netflix needs Widevine Level 1 DRM, This cannot be added to your device with a firmware, FIXED IN LATEST VERSION PATCHED NETFLIX PREINSTALLED

    Q. Amazon Prime Wont Work

    A. Like Netflix Install the mobile app, the TV version needs Widevine Level 1

    Q. Disney+ No Sound
    A. Fixed in v7.2

    Q. Root Switch Wont Work
    A. Unfortunately v7.3 is always rooted and the switch doesn't work (I may offer unrooted versions if there is demand)

    Screenshots On The Website
    https://aidansrom.ml

    NONE OF MY ROMS AND NO OTHER ROMS WORK?
    If you have one of these devices that really struggle taking any custom ROM, sometimes these are MXQ devices (there are so many clones of these devices) and they may have a locked bootloader or it needs a DTB that isn't common or known, there are some ROMs that have saved some people before, these are only if no other custom ROMs will work for you and are a last resort :)

    See this post:

    Glad you used the Boot Animation, hoping more devs would include it in their builds ?

    I tested all the older RROMs with the same result(wifi turned off). :crying:
    The stock rom had the wifi working. When i started to use some custom rom, the wifi never worked again. One option is return to the stock rom but the version available in h96tvbox.com seems to be corrupted.

    Honestly i think your best option would be to just used wired, most of the android boxes i have come across have awful wifi chips, the wifi card on my 2 current boxes works but both suffer from poor speeds, and constant drop outs, i would highly reccomend using ethernet, you can use powerline adapters to get wired internet to any plug socket thats what i use for tv box and my xbox
