I don't think you can do that.
This rom seems to overwrite the bootloader with one that ignores the reset button and SD cards. Try to flash another S905x2 stock rom with USB burning tool just to get the original bootloader back on the device. That bootloader might recognize an SD card with a recovery image on it.Flashed the ROM [v7.5] (UNIVERSAL) Aidan's ROM [S905X] 1GB 2GB+ onto my S905X2 2GB/8GB MyGica 495PRO HDR box and it loads, but the stock IR part of the remote has no control to power the unit on or off. Now it doesn't seem to be able to go into the Android Recovery Menu so I can flash back with a micro SD Card version of the stock ROM (MyGica did not provide an AML version of their stock ROM that can be used with Amlogic USB Burning Tool) plus it doesn't seem to flash another ROM using the USB Burning Tool as well if I depress the reset button(Another MyGica oddity is that the reset button is built into the Power On/Off button) and plug in the USB cable the OS starts loading and doesn't seem to recognize the reset button for the Android Recovery Menu to show up. Any way to get back into the Recovery Menu or get it to load with the reset button in the USB Burning Tool ?
Edit: Oh I see this ROM uses TWRP in the Boot Recovery app, TWRP will load the img firmware from MyGica, but it thinks it is a zip file firmware and won't flash. Using the Amlogic USB Burning Tool still won't work for some wierd reason throws the a bootloader error message 6 seconds in.
The problem is after flashing this ROM the USB Burning Tool always gets a bootloader error message around the 6 second mark when I try to flash another ROM. I even tried Force Erase, no change.This rom seems to overwrite the bootloader with one that ignores the reset button and SD cards.

Sometimes I have to hold the reset button in with a stick to make it connect to the computer for flashing, sometimes not. Too bad USB burning tool doesn't let you backup your old firmware, that would make things easy.The problem is after flashing this ROM the USB Burning Tool always gets a bootloader error message around the 6 second mark when I try to flash another ROM.

I don't think this ROM even has the Android Recovery Menu in it as it has the TWRP app installed in the OS.
Would you know which is the best S905X2 ROM for the MyGica ATV 495PRO HDR ?
MyGica has not released any img files for their AML firmwares that can be used with the UBT for both their ATV 495PRO HDR and ATV 495X HDR boxes. Many owners have brick their boxes while trying to update from Android 6.0.1 to Android 7.1.2 through their micro SD Card img firmware files and the company MyGica/Geniatech doesn't seem to be interested in helping their owners.
I am normally a Minix user and not normally a MyGica user, but I found a bargain for a dozen of these old stock new in box ATV 495PRO HDR units to upgrade some of my older S802H 4.4.2 boxes so they can use newer versions of Kodi.
The USB Burning Tool detects the box so shorting the NAND is not the issue. The problem is I get a "[0x00101004] Erase bootloader/Lowper/Identify/Error result" message about 25 seconds into the flashing process. This only happened when I flashed to this ATV ROM.Sometimes I have to hold the reset button in with a stick to make it connect to the computer for flashing, sometimes not.

There is a trick of momentarily shorting the NAND pins while connecting to the computer, I've done it successfully on a s905x (after flashing incompatible rom) but there's a chance it could break something.
I have never had an s905x2 device,so I don't know what works or doesn't
When you find a flashable zip file, take a look inside and if you see "bootloader.img" know that it can potentially brick your device if its not 100% compatible.
Have you tried using a USB keyboard?Hi Aidan. I installed your ROM for s905x with my wifi driver and it works fine. The only problem is the remote which doesn't work. I have the appropriate remote.tab1 file but I can't log in. Is there any way I can replace the remote.tab1 with my working one? Thank you.
aww, not too sure about this chip
this wont work on the official mi box
hey v7 is now available, most are uploaded 2 still uploadingThanks 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.
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.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?
