Hi, I was trying your ROM on my Mecool M8S L and installation stops at 7% formatting, then burning tool crashes...

The box doesn't do anything now, no video.
Nevermind... I found the fix for that. It was a conflict with different burning tools versions. Uninstalled them all, deleted the remaining folders and reg keys, and installed just one. Then the burn process was successful.

However, the ROM has some issues in my box: no WIFI and BT don't get any audio when headphones connected, audio still goes through TV.
 
How did you manage to get the display show boot.... The kernel path sys/class/leds dont have the files for front led

Can you share what you did?

By the way you just need to run Few script to get the front clock working

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..

is there a ROM in Aidan's AndroidFileHost that will work on the 3D NAND Variant of the TX3 mini?
Literally the only ROM I could find for this is Alice UX (Tweaked stock ROM) and a REALLY old version of atvXperience

(PS. I've tried every single ROM available for this box until I opened it up and noticed the v1.3
It does work currently but this version of atvXperience is really unpolished and I don't want the stock ROM for this)

Differences from other S905W TX3 Minis:
Realtek Chipset (Possibly bluetooth?)
3D NAND flash

Hi All / Aidan
Any solutions How-To recover recovery ?
I'm running SLIMBOX on X96 Air P2 S905X3

I tried a update to latest version but the process failed during the format process . . .
luckily the box boots back as normal . . everything works accept i CANNOT get into recovery !!!

ANY SOLUTIONS HOW-TO ?

1) I tried Reset option through settings menu to try to get back to the recovery, but no luck !!!
2) When booting into recovery it just goes straight back into normal operating mode . . .
3) I also tried to Flash the Firmware again but no luck !!! (if i'm correct, i think it cannot find the recovery)

Any HELP will be greatly appreciated (perhaps with Ricky's Customization Tool i can strip the firmware to a level and get the recovery from there . . . but How-To is the question) ?

Also waiting to receive the Recovery from SlimHouse and hopefully i can restore with Recovery Flasher apk

Thanks in advance

Hi, Aidan.
My device is X96 Max Plus Q2.
So, I flashed the box with ROM: 7. [v8] Aidan's ROM [S905X3] [ATV 9] (X96 Max Plus 2) 4-32GB [Clock Fix Thanks XDA-asegura074].img.

After flashing, the box work great and run very smooth. WIFI is very strong that I love it so much. But my problem found about Bluetooth issue, my box cannot detect any headphone or other bluetooth devices. I think, may be we need to fixed this rom and release for acxactly Q2 model.

Please advise as soon as possible.
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.

In fact, I tried a usb for download. the problem is the drivers, it practically does not recognize the device and therefore usb burner tool does not recognize it automatically. is there a version compatible with these type of decoders?

    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…

    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?

    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....

    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

    @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 :)
