Hai aidan.. i have a95x f3 air.. with s902x3..
Can i try this rom? If i flash with burn tools.. it can back to original version? Nothing corrupt right?

Yes you can flash your stock firmware back, there is a small chance you'd rest button won't work (it may have different GPIO pins for the button, if this happens then mask Rom mode can be used to force it to be seen by the tool (it makes the tool think your NAND Iis empty ready to be flashed) the s905x3 testing version is available here https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1rXx_Klrfmf5kIGT-KLDbDpJspQqGIpt5?usp=sharing

Can I try this s905x3 test version to my X96 Max Plus S905X3 RTL8189FS 2/16 GB?

Hi Aidan,
Thx for your great work!
I've installed v4 s912 on my Alfawise H96pro 3/32. Everything is cool, but after I switch off the box using remote it will switch on after 30-40 seconds. It's on for 2-4 seconds and back switch off for next 30-40 seconds. And again, and again the same. When the box is off the blue light is completely off and I can't switch it on using the remote. Only when I cut the power and power back the box switch on. What's wrong with it?

Sounds like it's a uboot issue, best option would be to disable sleep in screensaver settings and keep the box running all the time :)

Thanks @aidanmacgregor for the excellent work!
I have installed it on my Meecool M8s Pro LQ as (rom S912/LPDDR3/LAN100/QCA9377/ltm8830 Rom) as per instruction by @athlon1 (thanks to him for the suggestion).
The box works like a charm, I've come across only 2 minor issues:
- once turned off, every now and then, red light binks blue and then goes red again, although the box remains off;
- I'm asked to carry out an Android System Update, the whole update gets dowloaded, the box boots into bootloader, tries to install it but it fails.

I am very eager for the next updates, this rom is fresh air for our s912 boxes

First of all let me say thanks to @aidanmacgregor this is a great rom. I was able to install [v4] [S912] [LPDDR3] [LAN100] Aidan's Custom ROM (bcm4335...) (KM6335) (M8S PRO L LB...) on my Mecool M8s Pro L. Netflix, disney+, youtube are working with the exceptions of HBOMax. i was able to install from the playstore , video comes thru no problem but there is no audio. I tried reinstalling the Rom and trying changing the setting under digital audio format as suggested in other forums, i would clear cache and restart every time i made a change. i was wondering if anyone else had encountered this issue.

only way is with root or by editing the firmware usimg linux tools :)

Hi when I try to unpack the rom it gives me this error, (There was a problem extracting your ROM)

What can be caused this???

I don't want to bother, but could you tell me what steps to follow to get the BT files included in the rom. I would appreciate it very much.

    oh see drive for a new folder to try :)
    Well some good news and some better news!

    First I tried the new version and it wasn't working either, so I tried another HDMI port on my monitor and it seem that the port was the issue. So I went back and tried the first version you posted last week and it does in fact boot just fine, but no wifi!

    Then I tried the new file ( [v7] Aidan's ROM [s912] (M8S Pro LB) XDA-DreamSeason.img ) from the fixes folder and that one boots and wifi is working! Will test and see how it works but so far so good. Thanks!!!

    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....

    myCANAL App No Sound...

    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 :)
