Hi, how is the testing going with the v6? Eagerly waiting for the v6 release for S912. I guess v6 mainly brings more support for wireless chipsets. It would not cause trouble. So if there's one please let's test. :D

Yhea v6 (or v7 if S905X is v7 by then to get them back in sync) is should be doable with WiFi drivers, I'm not testing V6 for S905W and S912 as I don't have any test devices (I'm working blind here), the WiFi additions can be done without me testing but stability issue if any are more difficult to diagnose without me testing but WiFi in can follow same process for S905X

I haven't even started on these chips, I've been very busy on a private project so most of my time is spent on that right now

There will be improvements coming :)

For what it's worth, I've tried this update to android 9 and everything works for me, wifi, BT, and it starts up without problem, the ddr3 / 4 , 1000 net BCMBT version.
All the best.

You used Supercelerons rom as it came without modifications or you took the parts from that to make mine work? (Or vice versa) :)

I saw earlier in the thread other people with the sv6051p wifi chipset. Is it even possible for this chip to be included in a later version?

Because trailers are not protected by widevine Level 1 DRM and I'll post an APK for you


Is there maybe an older version of amazon prime available which is also working on any android tv?
Do you know when the "widevine level 1 DRM protection" got implemented in the APK?

By the way I have currently the mobile version of amazon prime successful installed but the navigation through the app is kinda weird.


Furthermore today I received an OTA update, is that supposed to be?
- Result: Installation failed

I try to use your S905x firmware that you made..
Try the Pie version and no good, then try Nougat, and still no good..
My device is Fiberhome HG680P..

Currently i'm using this working BOOTLOADER, BOOT & UBOOT for running Marshmallow ATV modded..
is there anything i should adapt or maybe i forget to download??

Hello, is version v5 already available? At the end of last year, it was written that it was already in the final phase :) Am I looking wrong or do I still have to wait?
Thank you

    Can i do this on Twrp? I just did a back up of my Stock rom via Twrp.
    take the .partitions from my rom level 1 (rename to .img) and flash manually may work

    Peeps, I installed this perfectly on my old X96 mini but the ok button on the remote doesn't work?? Have to use a USB keyboard which is far from ideal. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    Actually WiFi doesn't work either. Can't see any networks.... Hmmmm
    remote fix planned soon

    Hi Aidan,
    Great job you did on this Rom. But can you help me with the following problems?
    My tv box is an H96 Max X2:
    1- I can't open my external hard drive or pendrive in the USB port, it says that the disk is corrupted or it just appears as I was reading, but when I search, the storage appears as ejected.
    2 - An automatic update appears to download, it downloads normally but the installation fails.

    First of all big thanks to AidanMacGregor for this amazing rom.
    I have it running on my T95Z Plus for a couple of months now.The version of my box has 3/32 with lp ram and AP6255. I tried all lp ram-versions and it was the same for all
    - wlan works
    - lan does not work
    - bluetooth connects to devices but e.g. no sound on bluetooth earbuds.
    - internal display not working

    Since about a week the netflix app does no longer work and shows up with error ui-113. Connection check in the details section shows positive feedback for all netflix servers. Tried everything to get it running again but without luck:
    - full reset of netflix app
    - uninstall and reinstall
    - tried the new version with fix as geura
    - full reset again
    - restart the box+router
    Any suggestions how to solve this problem?

    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...

    TO EVERYONE

    updates to S905W & S912 are slow due to not having test devices, makes stability improvements hard to diagnose, wifi improvements should be easier to add without testing and i will do this ass soon as i can, i have been working on a private project in most of my free time so not had a chance to further refine these chips, thanks for being paitent :)
