Hello @galaxy94, do you have a backup of the stock rom of the eon box? I would like to revert the install and go back to the stock rom, because my remote is not working with the Aidan's rom.

The tested rom is: [v7.5] (UNIVERSAL) Aidan's ROM [S905X] 1GB 2GB.

But I don't know if the remote control works as I use a mini usb keyboard.
Thanks for the great work @aidanmacgregor

And the question about the CoreElec on the sd-card? :)
Hi,
after updating the box to Android 7.1.2 or later with the exceptional Roms of @aidanmacgregor you have to install a terminal emulator on android from the playstore or any apk.
After that you prepare the SD card with stable CoreElec (19.3 matrix) and insert it in the box on.
Once this is done, launch the terminal and type:
Code:
reboot update
The box will reboot from sd with CoreElec.

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:
You are amazing. It made my mini 8sii like xiaomi mi box tv. I don't need to buy new tv box now. I have a problem with Netflix. How can I fix "UI 113 problem" ? I installed your Netflix original and fix version but it didn't change. Thank you again 🙏🙏

The only working version is the one ment for mobiles and tablets. You can download it on sites like APKpure.

The downside is that you will need an air mouse or mouse to navigate through the menus.

Another possibility is to use Kodi with the Netflix add-on

Hi Aidan,
I would like to inform you that the Custom ROM (Android TV 7.1.2) S905X has been installed successful on my SAMMIX R95s.
Hello, Vincenzo. Did Burning Tool detect the device just connecting it with the USB cable or did you have to make a short in the PCB to be detected? I'm trying with a Sammix R95s but Burning Tool does not detect it and I do not know if it is the connection itself or if I have to make a short in the PCB like in some other models. Thank you in advance for your reply.

The hint for users of nexbox a95x s905x. I installed Netflix and no problem if I watch something first time. If next day you will turn on nexbox and Netflix and the movie will not be smooth but will freeze for a moment all the time, it will not be a problem with network. It is problem with soc. It will be fixed if you go to developer options and set:
1. Limit background processes set to 0
2. Break each action if user will abandon it
It is without a sense in smartfon or tablet, but will work good in external android tv. This device has to run only one app in the same time.

    Hi, Why should one pick this 7.5 version over the 8.0 one? Thank you
    This one did it because 8 does not support remote control and does not support the same set of keys in BT keyboard. Only 7.5 can be operable, but true, the both works and 8 has mutch better GUI.

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

    And the question about the CoreElec on the sd-card? :)
    Hi,
    after updating the box to Android 7.1.2 or later with the exceptional Roms of @aidanmacgregor you have to install a terminal emulator on android from the playstore or any apk.

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