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...

could i put same rom x96 max plus2 4/32gb on my 4/64gb box and would it work?
if not is there any other rom that will work on 2/16gb version?
also have someone tested if dual boot works from sd/usb (boot to librelec)?

i have also a95x f3 4/64 box and saw that there i rom for it (A95X F3 v8) FB-Zeyn Elenson.img. have anyone tested it if wifi works?

Hello!
I'm Japanese and I'm not good at English, so I use google translate.
I'm sorry if the wording is strange.

I am a beginner who recently purchased the X96maxPlus Q2 (SoC is S905X3).
I'm interested in this ROM, but if the SoCs match, can it be installed regardless of the model?
I have Slimbox installed and using it now, but it has different ROMs depending on the version and type of androidTVBox.
It seems that there is only one type of ROM here, but is it OK to use the same ROM for any model of S905X3?

This is a rudimentary question, but thank you.
yes most of the time roms will work between chips, to have higher chance of sucsess match the ram type, your can use trial and error, or use rickys tool to unpack my rom to level 1, take "system product & logo.PARTITION" and copy to desktop, then unpack your currently working rom to level 1 and replace the files
i have this box:
brand: Transpeed (H616)
Ram: 4G
internal storage: 64
will it work on it?
sorry your Allwinner H616 chip wont work, this is for AMLOGIC based chips :)

I have T95 Max Plus S905X3.

Is no rooted, firmware stock Rom.

This Rom is compatible?

[v8] Aidan's ROM [S905X3-b] (T95 Max Plus) (AP6330) XDA-eManuka.img

Dual Boot run from SD card OS like Emuelec on this Rom?

T95 Max Plus
its one of the boxes where the recent firmware (post October 2020) has a locked bootloader and you have to revert to an older firmware or use the modded firmware.

--twrp can only be temporary booted in android 9

--probably will work depends on what wifi/bluetooth module you have

--USB Burning Tool, unselect rease bootloader and erase flash, this may or may not work and leving these selected may be nesicerry (I reccomend a clean install)

--Probably when xaiomi release a new update, maybe some other updates in between, i dont even have a s912 test device (Someone Donated Me One From America, Its In The Post Currently) i anm no expert with all this, just learning as i go for a year and a half, so software development background, or working with android really, just anted to make my own box awesome and it grew from there :)

Thank you for your reply. Almost same is the case with me. I am Engineer by profession, however, I am always eager to explore and learn about gadgets hardware and softwares, their firmwares etc before buying and to get maximum out of them during their service period

This firmware is amazing, but i have some issue, the volume button on my TX3 Mini's remote is not working, is there any solution for this?

And i am just curious if i can make my device root with this firmware?i really need the root access.

Thank you.
i dont have a solution for you currently with the remote, root may be done using magisk, manually patching recovery img (using rickys tool) :)

    I have such a box and I'm willing to try it out.

    Good Day,

    Anybody that can assist with which ROM I should try based on the nexbox A95x
    I have flashed

    1. [v8] Aidan's ROM [S905X] [ATV 9] (Universal RTL & BCM).img on my A95X B7N (same WiFi chipset as yours from what I can tell and same ram) and it works with 2 issues as far as I can tell, namely remote does not work properly and EAC3 streams do not work in Plex, but there is a workaround for Plex that I have posted in the other thread.​

    Would be interesting to hear if your remote works…
    1
    Hello ! Can you please add support A95X PLUS 4/32 S905Y2 into your firmware?
    Stock firmware https://disk.yandex.ru/d/OVIiV2Iej65lCw
    1
    thes boxes dont seem to accept generic roms, seem to be locked :)
    Yet i have installed it with Pulpstone ROM, and it worked fine, btw thanks so much for the attention
    1
    that is a vendor/usr/keylayout file issue but remote.conf file is no good in newer android :)
    I was able to find ATV 9 rom for the X96 mini (sv6051p wifi) with a working remote
    Unfortunately, there is update issue (repeat force restart, then failed installation)

    And also
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/s905w-atvx-v4-androidtv-9-0.4140379/
    But the "Q" key when using a keyboard does not work.



    Edit: This one from 4PDA also has a working remote and keyboard keys

    I try deleting the remote.conf, remote.tab1~3 as a test (on atvx rom) and when I reboot the box, some of the remote buttons no longer works.

    Would it be possible to recompile your ROM (or replacing the remote.tab files) by myself then modify the remote configuration using the roms above?

    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 :)

    I am also waiting for the wifi fix for the lb version
