Purchased a chromecast 2 a long time ago and kept it in storage until now. Now I find out that the wifi is no good in the room it is supposed to be in. I still have my Mecool BB2 non pro which has a rj45 and probably better wifi due to an external antenna.

Will this rom (which one of the versions.... a table or list instead of a guess would be nice) make me able to chromecast from my phone/pc to the BB2 ?

Another question. I can play HD videos on youtube without an issue on this device but playing a 1080i or even very low quality from a tv station apk installed file is a no go or extremely bad quality. Any idea why and will this play on this rom like it should? For reference in another room on a different floor I have a Google Chromecast tv thing (latest) and those streams play like they should.

    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.

    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?

    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 :)

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

    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 :)
