Thank you.

My device:

Good Dau Aidan, thank you for your help. I don't know which point i have to close for Mask ROM. I saw your video on youtube, but i don't know what to do. So usb tool recognized the firmware and it's good, when i connect the box to my computer, i can see in the hardware page just for 20sec then disappear. The driver i thing are working but nothing happened on the usb burning tools. So may i attach some picture here to check where i have to use my jumper.
did you click start before connecting box?

I installed the rom on my tv box (S905W, SV6051P) but the IR remote "OK" Home and back button isn't working. My second box (X96 mini, same chipset) its remote and USB ports isn't working at all

I have the old stock rom along with the remove.conf and the keylayout files, and managed to root the box.

Would it be possible to fix/modify the rom by myself? May I know what I need to do to get the remote working? either through root explorer or by re-flashing a modified rom
that is a vendor/usr/keylayout file issue but remote.conf file is no good in newer android :)

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?

Hi! Thank you very much for your work, have been using your rom on a X96 box and it works flawlessly.

However, I was trying to flash your rom on a Sunvell T95z Plus box, but none of them work.
I tried every version and only this "[V8] Aidan's ROM [S912] [ATV 9] [DDR792] [LAN1000] (qca9377) (H96 Pro Plus...).img" boots, but gets stuck on the AndroidTV logo (waited over 15 min).

You have any idea of something I can do? I wanted to try your 7.1.2 version, but can't find a S912 version, only S905x. Can I flash that version if the SoC does not match?

Thank you.

    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.

    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 :)
