Hmm your box is s905x so not sure what exactly issue is, if you can get any other 9.0 rom to boot I can then look into possible differences, you may need to use my older android TV 7 as this generally works on more devices, some devices don't like the new uboot or DTB :)

i have tried android tv 7 and 9, same result.. with tx5 pro no prob,.. i'll try another rom as a test

Thank you for the info!!!
I try replacing dtbo.PARTITION from atvx to yours, but the remote still doesn't work.
I try replace the System.partition and logo.partition from yours to the atvx firmware and the remote is working, but it doesn't work the app i need for my ott tv, when i open it, i get error " invalidApiKey" and doesn't run, (the same think happend with the original atvx firmware).
Is there anything else i could try?

Ok so your best option now really is to get a usb remote to be honest, be simplest option, use a USB keyboard make sure it works for you with said app and then invest in a remote if you think it's worth it, a cheap usb remote keyboard thing USB works well or an airmouse type remote :)

Hello. In first place, congratulations for your job. It's amazing.
I have a h96 pro h3 TV box with amlogic s912, 2 GB ram and 8 GB ROM. I think the WiFi chip is rtl871x. I flashed the 2. Ddr3 Lan 100 version and no WiFi. I tried almost all version and none works for me. Is there any way to fix it?
Thank you and sorry fory English

Yhea v6 (or v7 if S905X is v7 by then to get them back in sync) is should be doable with WiFi drivers, I'm not testing V6 for S905W and S912 as I don't have any test devices (I'm working blind here), the WiFi additions can be done without me testing but stability issue if any are more difficult to diagnose without me testing but WiFi in can follow same process for S905X

I haven't even started on these chips, I've been very busy on a private project so most of my time is spent on that right now

There will be improvements coming :)

Does this work on x96 max plus 2gb/32gb
I tested it on my X96 Air P2 box Amllogic S905X3 and it went well, there is only one problem, wifi and bluetooth do not work but it was happening before the update, yesterday an update of the android system that I applied appeared and now the box starts automatically in TWRP, how can I resolve this issue, can you help? Thanks great job, keep going

it wont be in the update, it must be in the base firmware for my s905x3 port (someone else provided the firmware and i ported on top of that), so it must of had a TWRP recovery in it i don't have a device to test this S905x3 version on :)

Edit: sorry for not mentioning earlier.. my device using S905X chipset.. 🙏🙏🙏

This is uboot files which i use on bootcard maker.. is it the right files??

While the recovery, Bootloader & boot image files, i get from TWRP backup, is it usable??

And this link https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FdCiWrsl0IWeeYPdm-9TwZp6T1h4r6pQ/view
is IMG package of RECOVERY, BOOT & BOOTLOADER.. 🙏🙏🙏

Tell me if i need to provide more file detailed??
Thanks in advance
i hope i can run your Nougat ROM at least..
But it will be great if i can run both Nougat & Pie on my device 😁😁😁 as i have 2 HG680P device..
I'm sorry @aidanmacgregor for posting at wrong thread before..
My device is using amlogic S905X.. 🙏🙏🙏

It's just me accidentally post it at S905W thread..

    Hi Ritama! I have the same, but 16/32. It worked perfectly for me. I just have to solve the problem of the ignition with the remote control, it turns off but does not turn on. To turn it on, I must disconnect and connect the power to the box. I would advise you to try it, you do not lose anything. It is the best custom rom with certified android. Cheers!

    Ok Thanks for your information.
    if you don't mind, please send me ROM link
    Regard
    I'm currently using firmware. https://school3mk-my.sharepoint.com..._top/Documents/slimboxtv/X96Max_Plus/Plus_2GB
    work ok on/off with remote but not certified google

    Indeed Aidan the only thing I can think of is that it wants to use wifi to connect to google servers and is unable to but that is nonsense. I tried my best on this box but I never saw anyone with this problem.
    Once I had a problem maybe similar, I couldn't use any stream services at all, the thing was that the isp that I got my service from for some incredible stupid reason that only their stupid engineers know black listed the NTP servers protocol from their network, so when I started my box it couldn't sync date and it always had like 5 years old date, the box couldn't ever be connected to any service at all.

    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....

    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 :)

    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.
