As I wrote earlier, the clock doesn't work (doesn't matter to me) bluetooth sees the devices, searches and finds them. The problem is that it can't pair them. In my opinion as if it was a driver issue then BT would not work at all. But I have tried, changed btlib and still problem. Maybe someone has some image fully working on A95X F3 without air.
I'm back with a question. Does anyone have a working image on the A95X F3 (without air), or has anyone managed to pair a bluetooth speaker on it?

I have tried serveral ATV9 rom and all have issue with KODI on my S912 H96 Pro Plus. Mine is DDR4 3GB ram version.
KODI will crash when loading movie or movie start. Not power issue, the same with USBA powered, or with 3A power adapter.

Hey @aidanmacgregor Thanks for all your efford to put this ROM out for everyone. Really good job.

I tryed this ROM on Sunvell T95Z Plus and it is very fast. Only problem is with wifi that doesn't work (there is 3 versions of this box with diferent wifi chips from what I could find).
The wifi\BT chip on my box is AMPAK AP6335 (the module integrates the Broadcom BCM4335 (WiFi) and BCM4339 (bluetooth) chips) as reported on this post. Is there any way to get the wifi to work on my box?

I am currently using atvXperience with android 7.1 ("atvXperience_S912_V2H_T95Z_FINAL.img" link) and the wifi works so the drivers are there I just don't know how to transfer them and compile a rom with this ones....

Thanks!

Hi, I have a TX 3 PRO with S905X cpu, I have flashed [v8] Aidan's ROM [S905X] [ATV 9] (Universal RTL & BCM), all work perfect, but I have the problem that when I turn off the box, the LED changes from red to blue continuously (I have the box in the bedroom and at night it bothers me by forcing me to disconnect the power supply). Do you know if there is a solution? Thanks
remove the LED (or cut one leg so its only flashing red, or blue whatever is dimmer) or tape over the LED :)

Could you please recommend a popular tv box for me to buy?
its a hard call, cheap end would be a s905x based box if you have the money get a certified device, minix neo T5 is better than mi box (better SOC & 16GB internal) and mecool certified device (8gb only), only no netflix certifacation on the minix, but a HD mod APK is available for this device as it had widevine level 1 DRM :)

    @aidanmacgregor I hope that you would keep your excellent work going. I have found updated version of Mi Box S firmware on following web link

    r3933 [RELEASE - BUILT SEP 28 2021]


    It would give us an opportunity to experience the same if you release v9 based on it.

    Regards and best wishes,

    Hi.

    Is it possible to add HS2734A WiFi drivers for the H96 mini (S905W)?

    The latest CoreELEC Amlogic-ng (kernel 4.9) has them working.

    Thanks in advance!
    possible maybe, not sure when will get time to try

    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

    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 :)
    4

    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 :)
