let me know if it works for you :)
I have flashed firmware on a95xf3 4/64 today With password.bin add and it Works Great and im thrilled about that.
Its much bettter on all views to previous android os
It all Works except Bluetooth but i dont need Bluetooth so its not important for me.
WiFi, remote and emuelec boot from USB Works and thats all thats i need.
So i for now i tested x96max+4/64 and a95xf3 and i am very satisfied and happy how they Works With yout Android TV os. I have also x96max+ 2/16 and m8s+TV s905d that i still need to test so if anyone have tested that 2 boxes let me now results.

Mandy thanks

Have been trying to get your rom working on a T95z plus 2G 16G with AP 6255 as the wifi chip.

It has LPDDR3, so have been trying your LPDDR3 roms. All flashed via usb tool. I have so far tried all 3 of the roms. All of them do the initial boot to the splash screen saying AndroidTV Aidan's custom rom, usually they will then go to the little animation then onto the Android TV screen.
Some seem to get stuck in this loop, but at least

4.+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S912]+[ATV+9]+[LPDDR3]+[LAN100]+(qca9377)+(ltm8830)+(M8S+PRO+L+LS..)
gets to the Welcome/language selection screen.

Once the Welcome screen comes up, it sits there for 5 seconds, then seems to reboot since it then returns to the initial splash screen of AndroidTV Aidan's custom rom. Cycle repeats until I power it off.

Saw you had a fix posted for a similar issue
12.+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[s912]+fix+DDR+keeps+randomly+freezing+and+restarting+-XDA+aoliu

But it looks to be for DDR not LPDDR. Any suggestions?

Hi, I've flashed all the roms from your Tanix Devices folder, but none of them make my wifi device to work, only via Ethernet I can get connectivity. Restored the firmware to stock and then wifi worked again.

My device is a Tanix TX3 mini (2GB/16GB).

I installed your Rom on a Tanix TX3 everythig works except of remote control.
On the original remote it works only OK, up, down, right, left and back buttons. Power, volume, mute, home, menu, delete and numbers do not respond. On an air mouse remote you can't use mouse to type on a virtual keyboard.

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...

Hello! I had to create an account to thank you for the work you are providing, i love it! I also wanted to give feedback since i didn't find any reply of other users using a MAG 410 device. I successfully flashed the MAG 410 with your "[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S905X]+[ATV+9]+(Universal+RTL+&+BCM)" rom and for now it works very good. For users that want to flash a MAG 410 consider getting a bluetooth remote for it since the old IR remote will not work anymore.
I also flashed a Mecool M8S Pro+ L LB box. I tried the "[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S912]+[ATV+9]+[LPDDR3]+[LAN100]+(bcm4335...)+(KM6335)+(M8S+PRO+L+LB...)" rom but WiFi didn't work. Now i have the "+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S912]+(m8s+pro+lb)+FB+-+Med+Lad" rom and WiFi works with that one. If i find some bugs while using the boxes i will let you know. Thanks again and keep up the good work!

Hi,
Just wanted to thank for the v8, it gave my Nexbox A1 a new lease of life. 😀
I do however have an issue when using a USB drive that is NTFS formatted. Fat32 formatted flash drives work. I cannot use the USB drive with NTFS in Kodi. In the release notes I have seen that NTFS is supported. Was just wondering if this is just me? Any workarounds that I can use? Tried pragon for ntfs, but still cannot use the disk in Kodi, works only with a file explorer.
Also, any ideas how to make the remote work?

I have searched your TV box on google and according to most of sites, it has DDR3 memory. You should try to flash ROM titled with DDR3 LAN 1000

There is workaround that you can turn off cursor in air mouse to enable typing in virtual keyboard

try the others in the s905w folder may have better luck, do you know your wifi chip?

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

    Honestly, I did nothing... I used the 4.+[v8]+Aidan's+Rom+(A95X+F2)+TGRAM-Souradeep Image file (since my MatrixBox uses the F2 Variant), with USB burn tool 2.2.0 and just ran the image load.. when I booted the box up for the first run, the display just worked, though as mentioned, it only displays "boot" when the box is powered on..

    I have very little experience in modding, as I've only been doing this off and on for a few years and I really wouldn't know where to even begin tinkering with scripts and editing the roms.

    I would really like to get the clock working again, as well as the remote, but since I myself do not know how to go about it, I'll live with what I can get... lol..

    Beelink mxiii ii box, [v7.5] (UNIVERSAL) Aidan's ROM [S905X] 1GB 2G

    It connects to bluetooth headphones, but playback is intermittent.
    What could be the solution?
    Thanks.

    the problem is that the program does not recognize the box, and the firmware I downloaded is for my box, that is, I have a s905x 9377 it does not work. i have a tx5pro that and i can't install anything. I do not know what to do :(
    If your TV Box has multiple USB ports, you need to try all the USB ports one by one.

    For examples, My Beelink S912 box has 2 USB ports, only one USB port can be recognized by USB Burning Tools.

    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

    Is it and Android TV apk, or an apk of the mobile app? Can you share the link to that?
    Android TV apk I will upload the link

    @aidanmacgregor Congratulations for developing and maintaining custom rom.
    I am currently using DaivietPDA 9.0 for Nexbox A1. Only Bluetooth does not work rest is all fine. I had failed to install twrp. I have following queries
    Does WiFi and Bluetooth works in v8 ?
    How can I dirty flash v8 over current rom without TWRP
    When v9 shall be launched ?
    Thanks :)

    --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 :)
