Hi Aidan

with the new V8 i have problems with Disney +, the vision is only in HD not in 4k, I tried to do several tests but nothing, perhaps it is to modify the app that I downloaded from the playstore? Could it be the HDMI cable ? I tried changing it but the problem remains.

thanks for your help

Hi Aidan,
Love your ATV9 ROM, just wanted to know if there will be an ATV 9 ROM for the Minix Neo U9-H with the USB working not just the OTG port?

Hello Aidan,

First of all, thank you very much for your time and continued work on these projects!

I would like to inquire if my H96 pro+ box which has a 3GB/32GB configuration with a S912 soc be compatible with your android TV rom?

it currently is running android 7.1.2 out of the box.

thanks again… look forward to your reply!

cheers
there is a good chance, i just cant comment on wifi, bluetooth or IR remote control :)

Hi Aidan,

My compliments for the work you have done.
Can I use them for my X96 Pro Amlogic S905X Quad-Core ARM Cortex 2GB/16GB TV box?
It's currently on Android 6.
I've tried to install several of your versions but every time I end up with an error after a few seconds I press the start button in the burning tool.
Are the rom's not compatible with my TV box or is there something I do wrong? I'm quite new to this ;).

Best regards and thnx.
its not compatible with 100% of devices, some devices have 3d nand, need diffrent DTBs because they are too far from "Generic " boards :)

with
3.+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S905X]+[ATV+9]+(RTL+QCA9377++LTM8830).img
on the left remote(first photo), the "ok" button works like "enter". on the right remote does not work. original remote is lost.
wifi works, but I cannot input text.

with
[v5] Aidan_s Custom ROM [S905X] [Android TV 9] [Universal] Many Wi-Fi Chips Work.img

roms, both remotes work correctly


upd:
3.+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S905X]+[ATV+9]+(RTL+QCA9377++LTM8830).img
found it's own remote control(second photo). navigation buttons do not work(only button "down" works, "ok" does not work, backspace works like an up arrow, numbers do not work, the "vol-" button turns off the box, but does not turn it on, etc ... cannot be used
HEEEELP!!!))

Hi Aidan I'd like to share with you a couple of things I've got from your roms, I have this android box: u2c t95x it's -as I understand- the same thing as the Sunvell t95x.

I use android TV and also an sd card with emuelec, I was using atvxperience but your rom looks so clean (the space on this little boxes is so low that all that bloatware is just waste of memory) so I decided to see if yours worked as atvx, I first tried with "[v8] Aidan's ROM [S905X] [ATV 9] (Universal RTL & BCM)" but the wifi didn't worked so I tried this one, "[v8] Aidan's ROM [S905X] [ATV 9] (RTL QCA9377 LTM8830)" with that one the wifi worked but the remote (the one in OPs second picture) has exactly the same issues he has, so trying with other of your roms I found this one, "[v7.5] (UNIVERSAL) Aidan's ROM [S905X] 1GB 2GB+" the wifi, remote and rebooting into emuelec works as it should, I don't know what it would take to make V8 to work that way in the box I have, but maybe you could try to use some of the drivers and remote configurations you already have on rom V7.5 (in the boot screen says 7.4), and other thing, could you please tell me where can I find info on how to root your rom, I'm not that smart but I think that maybe since your V8 is not rooted then that's why I cant boot emuelec, on your rooted rom -V7.5- and on atvxperience -also rooted- emuelec could be booted, maybe it could work or not but at least I'd like to try and see if it works.

I have a new problem now:
I have flashed [v7.5] (UNIVERSAL) Aidan's ROM [S905X] 1GB 2GB + .img - wifi works, remote works. but ~every minute the wifi disconnects from the hotspot ...
I flashed [v7.5] (MXQ) Aidan's ROM [S905X] [P212, P214 & P242] MXQ Pro 4K 1GB 2GB + (720pUI & 210DPI) .img - the resolution is terrible, wifi works, with the remote control the problems described above.
and now the TV box is not detected by the computer when connected via usb. turns on as from a power supply and boots up

how to reflash it now?

    Unfortunately, I regularly had major problems with the WiFi on my A95X box , which meant that streaming wasn´t possible because no data was transmitted.
    So I bought an original Mi Box S in the black friday deals and say goodbye to the forum. :)

    Thanks again to Aidan, I had a lot of fun with your Custom Roms last year. :)
    haha your a certified L1 man now! Glad your happy with an official box, less workariynds needed, Thanks for your suppoort! :)

    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.

    You are right my friend this was an old box and I think I was able to do the best that I could with such a box but I am terribly stubborn and I just cant figure this problem out . Its a good exercize and I learned a lot. I got a box that was a brick and I put it back to life , also I dont have sound with HBOMAX I figure it must require some codec. One thing I like with this ROM is that it is quite stable I plan to buy a OON IPTV box for the fun of it and some 905X3 box to see how far I can go with those. by the way I put a tread explaining how to install the google TV launcher maybe you might like it , the thread is under google tv general, try it out and let me know how it went, I also put instruction on how to roll it back in case you dont like it. Cheers
    I have reached my possibilities with this box; i got problems with apple tv +
    Hi,

    I have an Amlogic S903X TvBox. I have installed HBO MAX app but I don't hear any sound. It seems that you have to disable Dolby Digital audio format, but when I am at the Sound menu I click on Manual and it doesn't show the menu to select the sound format.

    Is this happening only to me? Is there any solution to this issue?

    Thank you all!
    Same problem but its either a codec issue or Widevine or both .

    i have x96 max plus 2/16, is anybody try flash this ROM (v8) ?

    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.
