    It worked with Android Tv Remote app.

    But still these are the issue i am facing now:

    1. Wifi is searching both 2.4 and 5 Ghz but i am not able to connect to either wifi. Only LAN works.
    2. T95 max+ remote is not working.
    3. Bluetooth i will test and let you know the results.

    Else, it is running smooth and lag-free.

    Thanks !
    Update :
    1. Wifi works fine after removing LAN cable. :)
    2. I am able to connect Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse (after installing mouse toggle).

    The only problem left is the Remote is not working. @aidanmacgregor Can you please guide on that ?

    Hello all.
    I have installed version 4 on my Mecool M8S L ( WiFI not working).
    If i want to update to version 7, do i follow the same procedure? Will this erase everything on my box?
    Has Wifi been fixed?
    Thank you in advance!

    Hi!
    I think that to update to version 7, you have erase everything, because you've to do a clean instalation.

      hi @aidanmacgregor is there any chance to get a file to flash via ota update?
      My s905x3 box has no reset button ANYWHERE and can't get into fastboot, my only option is to try over ota.
      THX!
      you can try sd burn card maker but i would highly reccomend figuring out mask rom mode, this it much more poerful and can unbrick devices, i made a video here about the process

      I got a t95z plus 2/16 (I believe) it was running android 6 from stock. It is running a android 7 custom rom right now.

      not sure what memory type it is though to flash this rom. I took the box apart.

      the 2 memory chips have on them
      PE017-125 F1628

      can anyone kindly help me figure out what kind memory this has. I don’t want to brick it. Thanks

      edit: turns out it is ddr3 ram. Just posting this here in case it helps someone

      @aidanmacgregor just wanted to let you know that I tested some more versions: So far, the 10.1 img is the one that works best on my Alfawise S95, although the only ones that allowed me to use wifi on my SV6051P chip were the 7. [V7] Aidan's ROM [S905W] [ATV 9] (SV6051P) and the 10.4. Aidan's ROM [S905W] (tx3mini) (9012p) XDA - hugocarmo

      The 10.4 (9012p) img was actually the most "complete" one in my case, because not only I was able to use wifi, but it also was the only img that allowed my to change the screen settings (HDR to SDR and Screen Resolution) and to deactivate the movie player app completely. All the other imgs that I tested crashed when I tried to change either the HDR to SDR option or the Screen Resolution, and they also didn't allow me to deactivate the movie player app in the settings. My problem with this 10.4 img in particular was that the UI was all misplaced and kinda bugged, and the resolution was also weird, so it was unfortunately unusable for me.

      I'll be sticking to the 10.1 img for the time, and can't wait for more updates! Thank you for all the hard work!

      Netflix wont work from play store
      The TV Version of Netflix needs Widevine Level 1 DRM, This cannot be added to your device with a firmware, Patched Netflix Apk Now Available

      Amazon Prime Wont Work
      A. Like Netflix Install the mobile app, the TV version needs Widevine Level 1

      Disney+ No Sound
      A. Fixed Earlier Release

      No Root
      There Is No Root In This Firmware Because This Is a User Build (Not User Debug)
      User Build: This Is Like The official Android Tv Devices (Like Mi Box), it does not have root or TWRP, Uses Release Keys and is SELINUX enforced
      Why?
      This Makes More Apps Show Up In The Play Store that didn't show before, (Example: Isp Android TV live tv app, only shows in Play Store On non rooted and SELINUX enforced devices, also the streams in the app do not even play in rooted devices.) And other Apps With Similar Issues On Non Certified Devices....

      TO EVERYONE

      updates to S905W & S912 are slow due to not having test devices, makes stability improvements hard to diagnose, wifi improvements should be easier to add without testing and i will do this ass soon as i can, i have been working on a private project in most of my free time so not had a chance to further refine these chips, thanks for being paitent :)
