@aidanmacgregor Hi there! can you update your download links? the ones on the wordpress website (https://aidansrom.wordpress.com/atv7/) redirect to this video
but it has been taken down by youtube, I also found this link in the comment https://mega.nz/folder/QkZTmaZa#iaFEG4McZUPgz1j3kINW3A are these firmware options or just specific versions for certain devices?

to give some info: my tv android box is an amlogic P212 running android nougat (7.1.2) but I can't get android to display my wifi chip, on most websites it only says SDIO Wifi which idk what it means.

Any help is very appreciated.

h6 devices refer to Allwinner ARM CPUs which is another manufacturer (is not amlogic, which produces S905 CPUS) so you have to look for allwinner h6 firmware

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 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
I have the same device @lucariello79 which firmware version do you recommend based on how it performs or what things worked for you? btw about the launcher maybe changing the default launcher could help you but idk.

I have the a95x B7N. I have installed the specific rom for that model. Everything goes amazingly well, except the bluetooth. There is no way for bluetooth to work, neither to receive files, it does not find other devices....

Any solution? Please. I would like to be able to connect my bluetooth speakers.

Thanks

hey, bana çalışan fabrika donanım yazılımınızın ve uzaktan kumandanın çalışmasını istediğiniz romun bağlantılarını gönderirseniz, DTB'yi fabrika rom'unuzdan çıkarmayı deneyebilir ve birinden memnun kaldığınızda yeni donanım yazılımını koyabilir, wifi deneme yanılma olabilir , cihazınızda hangi wifi çipinin olduğunu görmek için cihazı açabilirsiniz, bu özel rom'un doğru sürümünü bulmanıza yardımcı olacaktır (bazıları AP6330 için diğerleri RTL çipleri vb...) ve satıcı bölümü almak da mümkün olabilir. wifi düzeltmeyi denemek için fabrika rom'unuzdan

bu harika olurdu, buna bir şeyler eklemek isterseniz işte bir BC adresi:)

    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 ?
