Hello forum. Looking for some advice.

I have a Chinese T95 Max plus which I believe is using the AMLogic 905x3, I was trying to install this firmware last night however I had no success. I keep getting thrown various errors with USB burner and AMLogic Tools is a no go either.

Is there a way that I can install via SD/USB stick or via ADB? Has anyone else flashed the same or similar.

Many thanks in advanced

Ah so is this only for the original 905x model? Shame as the firmware installed on this box is a skinned phone\tablet version designed for a touch screen. Not providing a good user experience as you could imagine, looking forward to a proper experience. Is there another you can advice in the mean time?

Nothing that I have tried personally, Slimbox seems popular here on XDA with s905x3 version available, if you find a rom that worksi can try a port, as long as it boots, WiFi and Bluetooth and remote works then should work on a port :)

Hi Aidan, I cannot find Magicsee N5 special edition, the link on page 2 has expired. I tried all most all of your roms, Android 9 & Android 7 all remain stuck at boot logo. I have Magicsee N5 S905X dual band qca9377 wifi, 2G/16G version. Please guide me what should I do?
I'm drawn into this only because your youtube video for S905X description says " MAGISEE N5 VERSION NOW AVAILIBLE PLEASE TELL ME IF IT WORKS!!". However, I cannot find any such rom. Could you please guide me in right direction or remove such misleading info from youtube video description.

Aidan's Custom Android TV 9 ROM For S905X

This is v3 Of My Android 9.0 Firmware, This Is Based On The Official Mi Box Android TV 9.0 Firmware

This Is A Firmware Port Of The Xiaomi Mi Box Firmware Designed To Run On Amlogic S905X Devices

This Firmware Is FAST & STABLE

WARNING: This Is Experimental & Requires Multiple Steps, Please Read About "Mask Rom Mode" To Know How To Recover Your Device If Installation Fails!
This Has The New Amlogic Kernel And As Such Will Not Work On All S905X Devices, My Older Android 7 Based Firmware Works On Most Devices

How To Install

Use USB Burning Tool, See Website

Wait Up To 5 Mins For Firmware To Boot For First Time & Proceed Through Initial Set Up

Open Settings & Navigate To "Apps", Then Choose "See All Apps" Then Disable "Movie Player" & File Manager If They Don't Work & Any Other Apps You Want To Hide

Enjoy!

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....

hi, my SPDIF amp died about a year ago so I've never tested this function, sorry, try adjusting the sound settings maybe (like from auto to PCM) :)

    Thanks for the reply and eagerly waiting for manual update. The existing rom is almost like stock one. Happy with it, and the manual update would enhance it further.

    I tried sideloading many .apk for prime video of different versions and both platforms - mobile and android tv. Even tried aptroid.tv app store with someone's suggestions on google.
    However, the mobile versions did not even install. And the TV versions though installed but returned with the same error. Only trailers are able to play. Main content isn't playing and the error "Something went wrong" shows up.

    If you could help me with any working apk for prime video, kindly provide. Just like the netflix you provided.

    Thank you so much in advance Aidan.
    hey v7 is now available, most are uploaded 2 still uploading :)

    you can try to flash without erasing and without overwriting bootloader, this will probbly work upgrading to newer version of my rom, others maybe not but im unsure exactly :)
    I did it today, everything is working, and my apps are still there. Thanks mate(y)

    Hi, does this firmware have wifi hs2734a support?
    Not 100% sure if your chip works in 9, it does in android 7 rom :)

    Great rom once again Aidan. This is perfect now. This time I did not do a hybrid ( Atvx + Aidan). What I did was I extracted your V7 rom and patched the recovery.PARTITION with Magisk then replaced back and pack it.I root with Magisk then place my box remote.tab1 into vendor/etc and reboot. That's all and my remote is working fine. Thanks.

    Hello Timosat, as I understood I have to find ly remote file and then after several step sut this folder in aidans rom... Where to find the right remote folder for my box? I have the remote.conf from a previous rom can I use this file?
    I read that you use Atvx 4 rom to do this ? You choosed this rom because your remote works with this rom?
    It's a long process with patience. Your remote.conf file has to be renamed to remote.tab1 and use any good file explorer eg mixexplorer and transfer tthe remote file to vendor/etc folder .But before you do this make sure you are rooted. You may try and root Aidan's rom first by patching recovery.Partition method.And see if your remote will work. As for my case yes I use atvx4 rom because I've tried Aidan's rom my remote did not work. So I made (should I call it hybrid) rom.By taking system.PARTITION from Aidan's rom and substitute it in atvx4 and also patching atvx4 recovery.PARTITION with Magisk.Then I repacked and flashed to my box.
