Hi aidan,
I have MXQ Pro 4k with S905X based processor (p212 or p201) and shipped with stock 6.0.1 android rom.
Then,I decided to use your rom because it looks promising and better.
The only issue is the big input latency & the 3 usb port on the side of the box not working (that 1 port on the back worked fine btw) (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ .Then I tried to reboot to twrp recovery and the issue still persist. So its the kernel fault i guess...

anyway here all the logs you need and doesn't need.

i suspect its DTB that caused some USB ports to not be seen not sure about the input latency though :)

i flashed my MXQ Pro(G9CX) S905X box with your 7.4 rom,but now I don't have the option to flash another rom,only things i can do is to boot v7.4 rom,no recovery no bootloader,nothing...Tried with usb burning tool,burn card maker,reset+power still nothing.
The system is booting, the box is working, but I want to flesh another rom.
How to solve this problem?
Thanks in advance.

I have a Streambus X6 SAT Motherboard Amlogic / P231 / P231: 7.1.2 / NHG47L / 20200511: User / Release-Keys with DVB-S2.
DVB-S2 will work on your firmware?

I discovered this ROM by chance, and installed it on my old and useless tvbox. I have not been able to test it and I comment why.

The first version was 7.5 Universal.

The remote control of the old box does not work the up key and I can not write any text on keyboard box: wifi password, any search on tv streaming platform...

I have tried also the 7.5 MXQ version. With this version the remote control does not move in any direction, however with the wireless control I have not had any problem, but I continue with the problem that I can not write at keyboard screen for the same reason as with the previous one.

I wanted to try another version, but isn't possible because the TVBOX is not recognized by the USB any more at burning tool, and when I perform the process, the box start directrly in the rom, but not in flash mode.

I tried to reboot to Recovery with option on apps installed, but when I reboot, it starts again the rom without running the flash/recovery mode.

I think the recovery may be corrupted, and my question is if it is possible to install a new recovery without PC to be able to install a new ROM?

This TVBOX has a reset button but it has never worked, however when I tried to connect by USB to the computer on the first instalation 7.4 universal version, I used the flash without problem with usb tool that Aidan reccomended 2.20, until this moment that does not work anymore.

    If someone gets into a problem like me, just connect these two dots,and you are in rom mask mode.
    "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

    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.

    Below are my box specifications
    i cant see what soc from specs but p212 suggests s905x :)
    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
