I was very hopeful for this Rom on an old Probox2 Air Plus I have, Installs boots and everything works, However it will randomly freeze and reboot here and there, Also I am unable to get audio from HBO,.
You tube TV fires a random video playback error and will not play anything, I would have also liked to see the ability to use your own Launcher..

If you can root using magisk i have a file that will fix bluetooth for you
Hi Aidan, thanks for your reply.I have decided to try rooting with magisk but something I am doing wrong.
1) I booted into recovery mode via adb (the reset button won't work)
2) I uploaded the temporary image of TWRP.
3) I flashed Magisk.v21.2.zip successfully.
4) I installed Magisk app and it says I am not rooted.
That I do wrong.

Lastly I would also appreciate it if you can share me the file needed to fix bluetooth.
Thank you so much

hola també arrencant la recuperació per adb (el botó de restabliment no funcionarà) i teniu twrp (recovery.img) a la memòria USB, però no podreu arribar a twrp només a la recuperació de rom v7. em podeu proporcionar el vostre twrp temporal (enllaç per descarregar) el vostre twrp és un fitxer zip? com penjar la recuperació temporal?
És clar. Aquesta és la versió 3.2.2 per a S912 Arrenc la recuperació amb adb i tinc el fitex twrp en una clau USB

@aidanmacgregor just installed the 7. [v7] Aidan's ROM [S905W] [ATV 9] (SV6051P) img on my Alfawise S95, and I'm happy to report that WIFI works!! Unfortunately, I encountered some issues:

1 - The middle "ok" button (the one used to select options and stuff) doesn't work, neither on the default IR remote, nor on my WeChip W2 Air remote. Some buttons seem to have been remapped, and if it wasn't for the WeChip's back keyboard, I wouldn't be able to type anything;

2 - The front display, which used to display the time when the box was powered on, no longer works. Not that big of a deal, but it is something nice to have working;

3 - The media playback seems to have suffered a bit. Doesn't seem as smooth as it was on the 10.1 Tanix TX3 Mini img. I noticed this on Disney+, and I'm not sure if this is related, but I couldn't log into my Netflix account through your APK on this img, while on the 10.1 img I had no issues with that.

I think those are the biggest issues I encountered while testing, anything I can do to eliminate them? Or should I wait for a future update?

Once again, thank you for all your hard work!!

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 !

FWIW I tried this with the Kingnovel X10 MAX S905X3 (4RAM/128ROM) and the WiFi doesn't work. The remote is detected properly and the Image looks good (no bloatware) but without WiFi it's pointless for me :(

The image I tried is `[v7] Aidan's ROM [S905X3] [ATV 9] (Unknown Wi-Fi) (Thanks Mick Ackerley).img`. I tried the rest but they would either not boot or the remote didn't work.

Thank you.

    @aidanmacgregor Thanks so much for this great ROM! I am using your [S905W] (tx3mini) (9012p) XDA- hugocarmo version of the ROM.

    Everything working 100% except the volume up and down on the standard tx3 mini remote. Would it be possible to apply a patch for this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Don't use usb adapters, use the usb ports on the back of the computer. if the first time does not work try a second it always does.

    Thank you @enerdude for your help. Do you have another advice?.

    I tried this but again brick my box after 7% with the USB burning tool. I revived again with the firmware [atvXerience S905W_V2H_FINAL] but I don't like it because not working Clock, Chromecast built-in neither Bluetooth 😭. BTW the Bluetooth work only with this firmware [AndroidTV_7_S905W_Bluetooth_Tue_Minh_20190320.zip a vietnamese].

    I'll really appreciate if @aidanmacgregor can give us some light about it.🤞
    chromecast built in wont work as our devices dont have widevine level 1, thi cannot be changed, look for clock patches maybe help, and try taking libbt-vendor.so from working rom and copy across :)

    Hi my friends. Please I need your help. I have a box TX3 mini (S905W) with 2GB RAM / 16GB internal. The board is blue (maybe generic) and was release on march 2019. I tried to load this amazing firmware but It was impossible, stops after 7% with error " [0x32030201]Uboot/Get result/DiskInitial error". The only firmware that I could install was AndroidTV_7_S905W_Bluetooth_Tue_Minh_20190320.zip from a vietnamese website HERE.

    Is there anything else that I can do for install Aidan's ROM or another ATV9 rom? And how?
    Thanks in advance.

    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 :)
