Install the aida64 apk on your tv box and have it give you the specifications of your ethernet and wifi chip, and based on that look for the one that best suits, usually the IR will not work for you, you will have to add a universal wireless keyboard or an air mouse

Hallo Freunde,
Ich habe das Aidan Rom V9 erfolgreich auf meiner TANIX TX3 ALICE UX Amlogic S905x3 installiert.
Wlan Lan BT FB alles funktioniert super.
Leider finde ich kein Schalter Power off?
Auch Chromecast oder Miracast scheint nicht zu funktioniern?
Danke für das tolle Rom.

Hi Landrich, thank you for your reply. I have downloaded aida64 and it shows a bunch of information but I can't seem to find the necessary information to match a ROM .img. could you please advise which tab i would have to deep dive into to get the appropriate information? Attached is an image of the system information. Again. Thank you for helping.

Hello @aidanmacgregor

Rom looks very good. My question is if it will work on 905x4 Processor ?
My box is : A95X F4 Android 11 Amlogic S905X4 4GB/64GB

I seen many users of this box and we are all very unhappy with original firmware. It is very lagy and unstable. Also box freaze every 24 hours and need to be reseted from electricity.

My tv box has exactly the same specs as yours, I use the ATV9 universal rom but wifi and remote doesn't work. It's not a problem for me because I use ethernet and a USB wireless keyboard. I like ATV9 rom because Performance is better than ATV7. Maybe a USB wifi adapter could help (I don't have one to try)

But i tried the universal ROM on the amlogic burning tool and it keeps stopping at 4%. How did you install the rom and what model is your tv box exactly? The remote should be able to work if we replace the remote config file just like what i did on atv7.

My tv box is a T95N: Amlogic S905X, 1GB RAM, 8 GB Storage and SCI S9082C wifi chip. It is supposed to be a Sunvell T95N (I thinks is a clone).

I installed with USB Burning Tool 2.2.0 and default settings ( Erase flash and erase bootloader options ticked). I remember the first time I flashed this tv box I had the same % error and then the tv box was not detected anymore so I had to flash in mask rom mode to get it working again and finally I could flash it.

My Mecool HM8 doesnt have a reset button hence I only can use mask rom mode when burning by touching the pins internally after opening the box to detect it on amlogic burning tool. Would you be kind enough to give me the link of the exact image you used so i can try again? I dont mind not having wi-fi as i can use ethernet too. Just need it to be more seamless than atv7. :)

    USB Burning Tool Cant See Device

    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.
