If Amazon is available in your country, get on of their Fire Sticks: Fire Stick 4K or Fire Stick 4K Max.
Thank you.If Amazon is available in your country, get on of their Fire Sticks: Fire Stick 4K or Fire Stick 4K Max.
The only problem with them is playing local media, due to having only 1 USB port for power and external storage. External storage also only works with drives formated in Fat32, so you are limited in fire size. (I'm not 100% sure about this though).
If you don't have files on external drives or use Plex/Emby/Jellyfin these are the best sticks to get.
If you also want to play media for external drives or live in a country without Amazon, go for the Mi Box S. They are often on sale on AliExpress for about $40

3. [v8] Aidan's ROM [S912] [ATV 9] [DDR792] [LAN1000] (qca9377) (H96 Pro Plus...).img
It worked with this one:
So you're able to flash to another ROM now ?
That is normal since the On/Off button is normally IR on the stock remote. You can use Button Mapper Pro to assign a Off button to your air mouse., unfortunately there is no option to turn it back on with an air mouse.
Walmart Onn 4K streaming box, when is on sale for $19.98. It is much better than the Fire sticks, stock Android TV interface. Easy to expand internal storage (8GB, about 5.4GB available, similar to the sticks). It has LineageOS available for it.
Thank you, this is not available in the UK.
Walmart’s Android TV Onn UHD Streaming Device is just a rebranded Dynalink Android TV Box, which is itself actually just Google’s ADT-3 (See specifications tab)developer reference design that is manufactured by Askey.
AML_update.img file for USB Burning tool, let me know how you get onWas that Android 9 firmware an AML or update SD card version ?
MyGica does not release AML versions of their firmware for their most their boxes. So owners are pretty much stuck once a SD card update bricks their boxes. I am currently in touch with MiGica/Geniatech tech support fingers crossed they will provide me with the AML version of their firmwares.
tes possability, and same for recovery too, then would need to mask rom mode to flash it if no reset buttonTTj
Thank you so much for replying.
I have one more question plz.
Is there a possibility that this ROM won't boot on my device? If yes, then will it boot on recovery? I don't have the recovery button, that's the problem (I boot to recovery using terminal). Thanks again.
glad your up and running with something, did you also try 3. QCA/LTM/RTL?Yes, that's what I ended up doing as well. I needed to install the wifi_rtl_all.zip to get Bluetooth working, and needed to place a remote.conf for the device under /system/etc, and after that it's been working great. The ROM is regularly updated as well -- the main reason I sought out an alternative ROM, actually -- there's been another cumulative update (OTA) within the two days since I installed the ROM.
suggests the dtb may be slighty mismatched or the usboot more probaly, maybe find one thats better fitDear @aidanmacgregor ,
I found a great tool that helped my to create a recovery SD card : https://www.cnx-software.com/2016/1...otable-recovery-sd-card-for-amlogic-tv-boxes/
My box works fine again, except that I need to physicaly unplug the power adapter in ordre to boots it again. Can you help ? Did I use the wrong firmware ? Which one is recommanded for m'y M8S Pro+ ?
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?
