try these 2, one is the app, the other is a shortcut to make it show up on the homescreen :)
Hi Aidan, Thanks for sharing the apks. Tried installing. But unfortuanately this is also not working. Infact, this older version doesn't even support the TV OS navigation using remote properly. Seems like it is a tab version. I am totally clueless what to do next?

I am happy with the Rom as it is functioning properly otherwise including WiFi, Remote etc.
Tried few other OTT apps, with and without subscriptions, and they are also working fine.
Netflix with your provided apk is also working fine.

The only issue remained is the Prime Video. If you can trace out the working solution, that is much appreciated. If you need any information relating to the hardware etc, please ask.

Thank you so much!

HI Aidan's, I love this rom, very stable, and all works pretty fine.
But I have a problem, I need Movistar+ app working, and this don't happens into this rom. You can download it from PlayStore and ty by yourself.
Anyone know how to do to works Movistar+ on this rom? Ty

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.

    Firs i like to thanks Aidan for is amazing work.

    I have flashed my old X92 and it is spectacular how good it feels now to use it, really is great, I have some doubts

    +How to install the TWRP?

    +The only thing that does not work is the display I would like to install the patch for the display but I have no way to start the TWRP

    +Is it normal now that pressing the reset button inside the A / V JAck at bootup does never enter recovery mode?

    Any information or help would be greatly appreciated.

    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 :)

    I've just managed to configure my Tanix tx9s remote to work on h96 max x3. Read these guides:
    2
    In case it can help, these are the main changes I've made from remote.conf to remote.tab1:

    Thanks Warrior66. Being not too familiar with some of the tools needed, I was able to figure out how to create a remote.TAB1 file for the Nexbox A95X and now have the stock remote working with this ROM (well v6 as I only just saw that v7 is out).
    I thought I would share how it is done. Thanks to Warrior66, Rodmod and the ATVxperience website for the info.

    1. Install Aidan's ROM on your box via USB Burning Tool
    2. Install a File Manager on your box (I use x-plore from Google Play store - you need one that can use the root access you are going to give your box)
    3. Install Magisk (https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases) onto your box (put the apk on a usb or use a network share and then use file explorer to install it)
    4. On your PC, run AMlogic Customisation tool - click on the "Load" button and then check all the boxes except for Kernel. Open Aidan's ROm. Don't close this program just yet
    5. Open windows explorer and go to the amlogic folder tmp/Level 1 (Should be C:/Program Files (x86)/Amlogic/Customisation Tool/tmp/Level 1, copy recovery.PARTITION to another folder and rename to "recovery.img"
    6. Copy "recovery.img" onto your box
    7. On your Box, Open Magisk and click on "Install" and then locate the "recovery.img" file to patch. Once patched, copy this new file back to your USB stick or network share (to get back to the PC)
    8. On the PC, copy the newly created .img file into the tmp/level 1 folder, renaming the file "recovery.PARTITION"
    9. On the PC, using USB Customisation tool, create a new image by clicking on "Pack" - save it somewhere you can find easily on your PC
    10. Open AMlogic Burning tool, click File - Import Image and locate the new image file you just created
    11. Untick "Erase Flash" and then click on Start / Connect your box to the PC to install the recovery partition
    12. Once it has finished, you have installed root to the device, which is activated by booting the device with the button inside the AV socket pressed (which would normally trigger recovery). Let it boot once normally to make sure that it still works properly, then uplug and boot with the AV socket button depressed to activate root.
    13. On your box, open your file explorer. With X-plorer, you need to go to configuration / settings and click on the root section and choose the last option to allow read / write access to root.
    14. On your PC, create a new text file and call it "Config.TAB1". Go to https://forum.atvxperience.com/viewtopic.php?t=4134 and copy all the text in the code box under "II. Steps by Steps". Paste this text into your Config.TAB1 file and save it.
    15. On your box, Copy the Config.TAB1 file to root/Vendor/etc (say Y to overwrite)
    16. Reboot the box (dont need to press the button in the AV socket) and remote should work

    Hopefully this helps other people with the A95X (mine is the 1GB/8GB variant, but I am not sure that it matters).

    Cheers

    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)

    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...

    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.
