Is there another method to install patches? I have tried numerous times to try to boot my (S912 / X92) android box into TWRP recovery but no luck. I'm trying to install the bluetooth patch to see if it fixes my audio not being sent to my bluetooth earphones. Everything connects fine but no audio is coming from my earphones. I've try multiple combinations of different SD cards / USB flash drives but no luck. The method I'm using is holding down reset button then power unit but it always boots into android TV not TWRP.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi @aidanmacgregor,

First of all I want to thank you for this great ROM. I have a X96 Max and I have been having issues with it until I find it, now it works like a charm.
I wanted to ask you about the HBO Max app, I know you have discussed a little bit about it but I haven't been able to find a solution to the sound problem I have. The app sound works fine, as I can listen when I change selections, but when I try to play content it doesn't make any sound. According to forums it can be related with the Dolby 5.1 option, but I haven't been able to solve it with the posted workarounds.
I am not sure, but the problem can be similar to the one with the Disney+ app. How were you able to solve it?
Thanks!

Does any one have a copy of version v4 of this ROM [v7] Aidan's ROM [S912] [ATV9] [DDR3 and DDR4] [LAN1000]? My external 1TB drive was working great formatted as NTFS. With v7 android keeps wanting to format to FAT32 which does not work for me as most of my files are bigger than 4GB each. I've tried many ways to make this work but no luck.

Thanks.

disney plus looks for some settings on some devices & will not play surround sound on certain devices, some xaiomi & samsung were some devices that were listed so the app thinks its running on a device with no surround support

v4 IS here, unpack v4 to level 1 using rickys tool, take system.partition from v4 and replace in s912 v7 :)

Am new to flashing TV boxes.. Can someone help?
I can't seem to tell if this is flashable on my Amlogic/Tanix TX6. Mine has a very old and infuriating design which I hate with passion

Hi, I flashed my Sencor SMP 5004 PRO with v7.5 rom and it works fine, except for remote.
There is a weird thing going on.
My remote sends out a code (for example down key, whitch is the only one that works): 00FF6897
I can replicate the same code from my phone with ir, again 00FF6897 and it also works.
But when I use dmesg in termux, it shows the code as 0x000e4040, which coresponds to the default remote.conf as key down.
Default factory code from remote.conf is 0x4040
Every code from the remote starts with 00FF, yet the button down works.
When I send some other code from remote (up key): 00FF629D it gets shown in termux as: 0xb946ff00.
Is this some sort of bug or is there some kind of algorithm that i need to use to find out codes for the remote.conf?
Can anyone help me with this?
I apologize for my bad English.

Hi, thanks for your reply, i managed to get most of the buttons to work.
But the factory code is for some buttons different. Most of them have ff00, but some show themselves as 4040.
I noticed that all of the codes (even the ones with 4040) are sent as 00ff which should be recieved as factory 0xff00, but in some cases its not.
I think this is issue with some sort of timing or something like that.
Is it possible to have multiple remote.conf files to accommodate this?

yu would configure the one remote.conf to have multiple remote codes almost like 2 rolled into one file :)

    Aidan, found another box in my drawer. A Scishion V88pro 4K ... the famous cheap box. 1GB - 8GB, S905x version.

    The thing still has the stock rom but I inserted a sd-card with CoreElec on it which runs (ran, not to far in the drawer) really well compared to the Android rom.
    Been through a lot pages here and on 1 page a gentlemen mentioned that he couldn't start it anymore from a USB device. Was/is there a solution for this?

    Owww, btw if anyone complains about boxes rebooting and black screen, Seems that some of these power supplies are not the best quality. The one on my Mecool BB2 just had that issue. Luckily a bunch of other old phones chargers and my soldering iron lying around here.

    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:

    I am having Merlin 4k tv box amologic p212 based.can somoene please tell me which firmware should I use.

    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
