Another thing I want to share. I recommend changing the default launcher on these Android boxes. Recently Google have been forcing ads on all Android TV devices. Since the ads are intrusive, they hog bandwidth and cpu resources, causing streaming disruption and decreasing performance on these low spec devices.

I recommend Wolf launcher or Sideload channel launcher 3. You also need to install launcher manager app for a no fuss switch.

i specifically left in an older version in my rom, so you have the option to downgrade to the stock one (before ads) and disable updates in google play store :)

HI, i tried to install on my M8s pro l (lb version) with the image " aml_upgrade_package_s912-pie-beta2-lpddr3-3G-BCM4335-100".
After installing, it goes in boot loop. Installed over Burn_Card_Maker. I don't have this usb cable.
Is it the only way to install the rom with the usb burn tool?
Hope someone can help
Burning tool only way :)

Hello. I apologize in advance for my English. I have mxq pro 4k s905x 2GB 16GB (rtl8723bs) I am very impressed with how fast everything works. well done. I only have a few small problems. I have an android keyboard and on all previous firmware it was possible to use the AltGr + Tab key combination to switch between windows, i.e. between open applications and thus turn them off, kill processes, this is not here, unfortunately, it does not work. second thing, bluetooth doesn't work. I was using ps4 to bluetooth and everything worked, unfortunately there is a problem with the connection here. he is not there at all. can you do something about it? Thank you and best regards

Hi all and thx @aidanmacgregor for your amazing work...

im kind of desperate here caus i've buyed on amazon.ca a geniatech ATV598Max that come shipped with a certified androidTV 7.2 that i've tried to update to androidtv 9 cause geniatatech description mention that it s supposely to be supported but i've hitted a big wall of silence from all geniatech support email contacts and websites ... geniatech.com geniatech.us geniatech.eu mygica.com etc.. even mygica.co.za (execpt this last one really try to help me by contacting his own manufacturer contacts ....and the only firmware i was able to find and install was not an official androidTV but just a junk beta version that is even not correctly identify in the recovery or so ..that can be downloaded at the following url : https://shop.geniatech.us/download/software-for-geniatech-android-box/

once updated, it stuck my device in this fw with no way to push any kind of cfw or custom recovery that 'll let me install other fw version...

until i find you near perfect cfw

atv598max run on amlogic 905D but it seems to install without any 'major' issue ... OS is booting , wifi and bt are working quite good considering im using the mygica 495X that sound similar in some ways (but not so much) to my geniatech atv598max...
so it lead me to severals questions and advices need:

1.im using a vpn for some legit iptv provider that require to be geolocated in a specific country

it was working fine with the default atv7.2 shipped firmware with ethernet or wifi but something seem to disconnect ethernet with your ATV9 CFW at some point when i try to lauch and connect it with openvpn androidtv ...(but strangely not when connected with wifi)

Any idea of what could provoque it ? (i've seen some others xda user seems to have the same issue)?

2.the DVB tunner is not correctly detected and as far as i know , it's probably because your custom firmware is based for s905x and not 905D as documented for amlogic that the Amlogic S905D: Similar to the Amlogic S905X, with an added DVB interface. so you''ve probaly guessed that my next question/request will be :

Do you think it could be easy/possible to create an additionnal build for this kind of devices ?

At this point, your work and CFW are the only light of hope wich can finally make my device usable so can you please tell me what is you point of view and/or if something could be doable regarding all those infos ? it will be greatly , i mean sincerly greatly appriciated...

Anyway thanks for all that you could do even the slightest

regards

i intentionally left the last ad free version of Google Home launcher preinstalled, so downgrading google tv home apk to factory default will disable ads, then disable automatic updates it google play store :)

hi all and @aidanmacgregor ,
first thing first : thx for ur quick answer...

for my VPN issue i'ved figured out that your android TV 7 (standard) fix the issue and run quite good on my geniatech atv598max except the tv tunner part
i really understand that it is not the same as other CFW u was able to create but i was expected that there is a way to 'compile' a cfw for a different targeted chip like s905D ...may be using similar device firmware like the meecool KI or KII that are easy to find compare to geniatech's once...i know it would involved a lot of work and i'm ready to make everything necessary because im kind of desperate here in regard of the complete lack of support and absolute silence from geniatech here...
anyway thanks for all kind of help you could provide even if i have to do it myself but with instructions i can follow...

regards

Help & FAQ

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....

4) You Will Be Inside Recovery Now, Choose Update From EXT, And Choose (USB/SD Depending What You Use)

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

    I changed several remotes this way and they all work. It takes some time and you need to be rooted but this can definitely be done.

    i tried it all. it is probably possible to flash via micro sd
    thanks ✋
    Ok, first thing I don't know if you can install android from an sd, but this is what I would do, it's just a wild idea and you should wait for some one smarter to help you but, in a situation like yours I'd put a libreelec image on an sd then installed on the nand via shh, after that I'll try again to see if the can be read by the pc, then I'll try to flash again with the Aidan's rom that worked better for you, the downside is if your pc still don't want to read your box you'll end up with libreelec until you can find a solution.

    Wow, great tutorial man, thanks, super clear and to the point, I'll try it tomorrow and I'll come and tell you guys the result, also, a question, Do you think if I use this unpacking method with V7.5 could I get the remote file that works with my "****ty" remote to re packed it in V8?

    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.

    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.
