Hi everyone, I want to leave my feedback based on what I have tested.
My box is called TX95 (manufacturer unknown) and has 2Gb of ram, S905X, and P212 motherboard.
I have installed version 7.5 (both universal and MXQ version)
1) Rom speed: Excellent
2) WiFi: works fine, but: during the first configuration it loses connection, and to solve it I performed the first boot with cable and then I continued to use the wifi)
3) Infrared remote control (supplied as standard with the box): Everything works
4) Remote Control / Mouse / USB Keyboard (purchased later): Everything works
5) Video calls: It works (I tried with google duo and whatsapp business)
WHAT'S WRONG:
1) Youtube: if I close it and then reopen it, it often crashes and no longer works (to solve this, I installed smart tube next and it seems to work fine)
2) shutdown key: It does not work
3) The launcher: I can't set an alternative launcher as default, I set all the settings (as you do on an android phone) but when I turn on the box, it starts with the stock launcher, and also when I browse with another launcher and from the remote control press the "HOME" button it takes me back to the main screen of the stock launcher and not to the home screen of the launcher that I have installed.
Can anyone help me change launcher ???
I hope my feedback can help
hey, so the power off key is just misconfigured inside the remote.conf file, use termux and demsg to figure out the button code and fix it, disable/uninstall leanback launcher to use other launchers by default :)

Hi
I been searching if my box is compatible with this rom, can anyone help me as I cannot identify my box. I think it is a clone MXQ Pro. Here are the pictures of the mainboard (back and front).

Thanks

Edit:

Just found out that it has armv7 rev 5 v71 cpu with XR819 b/g/n WLan chip. Does anyone knows if this rom is compatible with my box? Thanks

Hi, I have a MXQ PRO 4K with S905W and Wi-Fi SV6051P, the board says "MXQ_S95W_V1.1". I burned the file "7. [v8] Aidan's ROM [S905W] [ATV 9] (SV6051P).img" and it got stuck on the logo (Android TV Aidan's Rom). Am I installing the wrong file or is it another problem?
not all older devices work with newer nadroid versions, say abour 90% but many reasons as to why not :)

I see. Is there another version that is lower than Android 9?
Nevermind, I installed "10.1. [v8] Aidan's ROM [S905W] [ATV 9] (TX3 Max ect...).img" (apparently my box is a TX3 Mini-ish lol) and at least I was able to enter the rom and pass the initial configuration, but the wifi doesn't work because my board has the SV6051P wifi chip, and I guess it's not compatible with this rom version. Is there a version of the rom that will work or is there a way to put the right wifi driver in this current version I'm using?

I saw that there is the AMLogicTools where you can change some files. What level should I unpack the rom and what files should I change?
And after changed, do you think the wifi will work?
Anyways, thanks for you great job providing these roms!

Anyone else having low framerates on OTT services? I didn't realise it at first, but it's mostly visible on credits after the show (texts going upwards) that framerate is lowish (texts/picture is not fluid). I've installed this rom on nexbox A95X-BN7 (s905x). BTW tnx for a new life for my android box!

Edit: nevermind, I switched to Aidan's ATV9, rooted it, put remote.tab1 and OTT services work smooth, but now I'm experiencing different problem. I believe Aidan already solved that problem with nexbox boxes on this ROM, when waking box from standby with power button it just keeps turning on/off until I pull the plug. Aidan's, do you remember what did you do to fix it? TY

Edit2: I've fixed it with repacked image, I've replaced bootloader, DDR & UBOOT with atvX's ones (slimbox's ones doesn't work as good). I've also repacked vendor partition with working remote because I was sick of root-ing and copy-pasting working remote.tab1 file. I just have another question if anyone knows how to do that, I want to map channel up & down on my remote, but when I map these codes to remote keys generic virtual key code key_0 (0x00) is dispatched to android system.

I've used these codes (402 & 403 in decimal system, I've even wrote them as hex in remote.tab1 file, nothing seems to work):
#define KEY_CHANNELUP 0x192 /* Channel Increment */
#define KEY_CHANNELDOWN 0x193 /* Channel Decrement */

Is there anyway we can extract the ROM files to make it flashable to TWRP ? I have an X96 AIR Box with a custom rom installed and I can't remember which version I have so if anything goes wrong I can go back to the custom ROM..

RISOLTO!!!
Sono riuscito a cambiare il launcher in modo permanente !!!
Ho seguito passo passo una guida che ho trovato online, e utilizzando "REMOTE ADB SHELL" ora sono libero di scegliere il launcher.
Questo è il link della guida:

ATTENZIONE:
per rimuovere il launcher dallo stato "DEFAULT" la guida dice di eseguire il comando con "REMOTE ADB SHELL":
"pm uninstall --user 0 com.google.android.tvlauncher"
Ma la guida è stata realizzata per google tv launcher (credo) e non per leanback launcher, quindi l'ho cambiata scrivendo:
"pm uninstall --user 0 com.google.android.leanbacklauncher"

D'ora in poi, ogni volta che installo un nuovo launcher, e quindi clicco sul pulsante "HOME", il sistema mi chiederà con quale launcher eseguire l'operazione.
Spero di essere stato utile a qualcuno....
Thanks so much for the great suggestion; works great.
Just to enrich the guide: the same result can be obtained by installing any terminal (for example Termux) and typing, with root permissions (su) the instruction you suggested:
Code:
pm uninstall --user 0 com.google.android.leanbacklauncher

Hi Aidan, any plans to update this version? It has a great drivers compatibility for generic/old devices.

Thanks Aidan for this custom ROM! I'm enjoying this ROM as it added a lot of features in my tv box and made it real fast! I managed to install the ROM to my Tanix TX9 Pro without any issues as there is a specific version you made for this model.

However I cannot make it boot with my Sunvell T95Z Plus. It's stuck with Aidan's ROM logo so I just reverted back to my old firmware. Can you specify which version of Aidan's ROM will work for this device? I have the 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM version (LPDDR3 I guess).

Also is there a way I can run Netflix for this UI? Even the Netflix version for old devices that is available for download at Netflix website won't work.

Try this: turn on the box and connect it to the PC via a male - male USB cable. Start the usb burning tool on the pc, open the rom you need to flash and click on start. Install termux from play store and type:
su
reboot update
Waiting without touching anything.
On reboot the flash of the new rom should start

Thank your for answering me ! That's definitlely the thing to do ! It worked fine (i found it out by myself but then tried to install a rom before i came here to say i made it lol)
The thing is, no matter the rom i choose, i always have a audio issue. No sound from my leelbox Q1 master.
Is there someone who knows which Rom i should take so that everything works fine ?
Thank you :)

Greetings Aidan,

thank you very much for providing a great ROM.
I'm using the V7.5 (S905X) version on "Beelink Mini MXIII-II" (2GB RAM / 16GB eMMC).
Everything works fine, except the wifi driver.
LAN is not an option in this case, it has to work over WiFi.


Issue:
------------
Box connects over WiFi and obtains IP, but after a while it refreshes and drops it again.
Basically repeats this in a loop, which results in loss of packets and connect/disconnect behaviour.


Request:
--------------
Could you please provide a patch or inject the correct wifi-driver into the 7.5 image?
I can provide the original dtb.img from the latest official Beelink firmware (P212), if its helpful.
CoreELEC 9.2.5 works fine, so i'm 99% certain it is a driver issue.
Also, i'm willing to donate some money for your effort via PayPal.


Best regards,
Eschmelax

P.S.: I repost this here. Being new to the forums i've posted it in another category.

    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.wordpress.com/

    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:

    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.

    Ok here is TWRP backup of v7.1, Can you test this and let me know it works properly please? this can be installed over the top of v7 using TWRP. Simply place the "TWRP" folder onto a USB Drive (See Readme Instructions.txt)

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jgj9Cd8oFkMKwZ4nM05cUWeovrDe-uBe/view?usp=sharing

    Installed and working fine. Thank you !

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