Last v5, wifi is not working for ap6330 while remote is working but v6 I cannot get through the setup on Region as mouse cannot select the region (can drag through the list) and remote is not working. So i cannot determine if this rom has wifi working. I don't understand why mouse cannot use in this Region screen. Can you help to look into this
@aidanmacgregor? I used AP6330 img.

BTW, if I want to update/replace remote.tab1 to img, what step i need to do?
Have the same as you. Using enter on usb keyboard (an air mouse with keyboard on the back) worked for region. Wifi is not working even on the 3 firmwares available

Hello can you help me? I have a TV box with the RTL8703BS Wi-Fi chipset, would there be any version of the ATV9 with that chipset?

    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.

    Hi Ritama! Thanks for the information! Here is the link to Aidan's rom. https://www.aidansrom.ml/ I would recommend that you start directly with ATV9 .... Good luck with it, I think you will have no problem. Greetings!

    Una vez que tuve un problema tal vez similar, no pude usar ningún servicio de transmisión en absoluto, el problema era que el ISP del que obtuve mi servicio por alguna razón increíblemente estúpida que solo sus estúpidos ingenieros conocen la lista negra del protocolo de servidores NTP de su red, así que cuando comencé mi caja no podía sincronizar la fecha y siempre tenía una fecha de 5 años, la caja nunca se podía conectar a ningún servicio.
    😟

    El asunto es que no entendia porque no sincronizaba la fecha, creia q era cuestion de que en ese momento estaba usando libreelec, pero no, era culpa de mi ISP. Queria recalcar eso, algunas veces no es problema de la rom o programas, sino algo externo.

    -The thing is, I didn't get why it didn't sync with the ntp server, so I taught it was a bug on libreelec which I was using at the time, but no, it was my ISP's fault. What I want to say is sometimes the problem is just something besides the rom or programs we have installed.

    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...

    [OLD] How To Install: [OLD]
    1) Download One Of The Base Firmwares That We Will Write Over (By Wi-Fi Chip If Possible But This Will Work Without Wi-Fi Using Ethernet)
    1.2) Download Reboot Revovery.zip & TWRP 3.3.1 AML By ViT
    1.3) Download One Of My Custom Mi Box Update Zip File
    1.4) Download USB Burning Tool (I Use v2.2.0 Download On My Website)
    2) Flash The Base Firmware Image Using USB Burn Tool,
    2.1) See If Wi-Fi & Bluetooth Seem To Work And Try The Other Version If Not
    3) Open The Update App And Choose Select, Choose Reboot To Recovery.zip & Chose Update & Update Again
    4) You Will Be Inside Recovery Now, Choose Update From EXT, And Choose (USB/SD Depending What You Use)
    5) Choose TWRP 3.3.1 .zip, This Will Boot Into TWRP, Slide The Screen To Accept (Mouse Needed) & Choose Install
    6) Flash My Custom Mi Box Update Zip File By WiFi Chip If Possible, If You Don't Have One Of These Chips You Will Have To Try The Versions & See Or Use Ethernet
    7) You Will Be Rebooted Automatically After Installation And Put Into The Stock Android Recovery
    8) Choose "Wipe/Factory Data Reset" Option Here, And Then Once Done Choose Reboot
    9) Wait Up To 5 Mins For Firmware To Boot For First Time & Proceed Through Initial Set Up
    10) Open Settings & Navigate To "Apps", Then Choose "See All Apps" Then "Show System Apps" Find The App "Chromecast Android Shell" And DISABLE It (Wont Work Without Widevine Level1 & slows device down)
    11 Disable "Movie Player" & Any Other Apps You Want To Hide

    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.
