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
Sory late.! Tq!! I will test today

My box is tx9s S912.

I use the version "[S912] [SLOW EMMC] [DDR3] [LAN1000] Aidan's Cutsom ROM [v3] (sp6330...) (M96X, TX9S, M96X Plus..).img".

Everything is smooth, but I found the remote couldn't select the options on above area.

By the way this rom is still awesome!

I installed v4 to alfawise s92.
Great Work.
All works 100%.
The best rom !!!!
Installed V4 too on my Alfawise S92 (similar to Beelink GT1) flawlessly with USB Burning tool as it wasn"t working with SDCard

Only Netflix is not working even using your APK :( but MyCanal is working

    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.
    you need to use amlogic unpack plugin, this is a donate feature, of use ricks tool unpack to l1, copy files over manually and rename to .img (my old workaround)

    Hi @aidanmacgregor, hope you're well. I have installed this version on X96 Max Plus (4/32 GB version) based on S905X3 with 1 Gbit LAN, model name is if I'm right X96 MaxPlus2. I flashed firmware using SD card method in Burn Card Maker as it's more convenient to me and I managed to get this working but with some drawbacks. I found the link in this topic so I'm replying here even though firmware name says it's v6 and there is a separate topic for it.

    Listing below issues I found:
    1. WiFi
    I can enable it however no network is found and after ca. 1 minute it automatically goes disabled. For one time system freezed for a while. It's probably because of lack of appropriate WiFi driver. AFAIK device uses Realtek 8822CS wireless chipset. I can provide you libraries with RTL8822 drivers from other ROMs where WiFi works.

    2. HDMI-CEC
    a.
    Turning off attached devices
    I have tried on 2 Panasonic TVs and device turns on my TV with Denon AVR or another TV with Sony soundbar but it doesn't shut them down. I have 'turn off' option enabled in CEC settings.

    b. Volume control
    I'm not sure if volume control handled by AVR should work as I don't own Mi Box, I could see some posts that Mi Box users can't control AVR volume via CEC using TV box remote so I can expect it won't work anyway however wanted to point it. Even I use CEC I can't control AVR/soundbar through it, I'm only getting regular volume bar on the right side.

    3. Audio passthrough (Dolby, DTS etc.)
    I have tried multiple settings however none of them allowed me to get Dolby TrueHD or DTS audio on my AVR. I'm not sure if I should expect it using your firmware.

    4. OTA update
    Received an OTA update notification (668 MB, This build resolve following critical issues: 1) Improve system performance 2) Update security patch) so I tried to run it. Download and installation went fine and after I chose reboot I didn't get into the system anymore. Instead of that I got into TWRP recovery screen. I couldn't process further. I needed to do a reflash using USB Burning Tool because of problem mentioned below at 5a so I couldn't get into flash mode.

    5. Model related problems
    a.
    Device not booting into flashing mode using button
    To trigger recovery (or flash mode) X96 requires to use e.g. match or screwdriver to keep button clicked inside AV port during booting. It doesn't work anymore after flashing this image. Probably it lacks some mapping of physical buttons.

    b. VFD screen doesn't work
    X96 has a little screen which can display time and some indicators as HD, USB etc. It doesn't work using this ROM.

    Other than above it works like a charm, clean, fast, applications work nice. Issues mentioned above are technical related to this particular model and it's hardware. I hope they can be resolved at least some of them. I'm willing to help with testing improved versions if there's such need. I have some technical knowledge so I should be able provide details needed.

    Great job mate! 💪🏼

      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 :)
