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.

there is a bb2 version i think may work, a table is no magic awnser due do same devices having several revisions, clones ect :)

Chromecast wont work as no widevine Level 1,

Youtube should work fine, i use smart tube next, i can cast without chromecast this way :)

I have walmart onn tv box, I have seen similar app which basically listens to voice button event and catches the audio from microphone.. logically there will be similar app in stock rom to capture audio from external mic

    Can i do this on Twrp? I just did a back up of my Stock rom via Twrp.
    take the .partitions from my rom level 1 (rename to .img) and flash manually may work

    Peeps, I installed this perfectly on my old X96 mini but the ok button on the remote doesn't work?? Have to use a USB keyboard which is far from ideal. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    Actually WiFi doesn't work either. Can't see any networks.... Hmmmm
    remote fix planned soon

    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.

    First of all big thanks to AidanMacGregor for this amazing rom.
    I have it running on my T95Z Plus for a couple of months now.The version of my box has 3/32 with lp ram and AP6255. I tried all lp ram-versions and it was the same for all
    - wlan works
    - lan does not work
    - bluetooth connects to devices but e.g. no sound on bluetooth earbuds.
    - internal display not working

    Since about a week the netflix app does no longer work and shows up with error ui-113. Connection check in the details section shows positive feedback for all netflix servers. Tried everything to get it running again but without luck:
    - full reset of netflix app
    - uninstall and reinstall
    - tried the new version with fix as geura
    - full reset again
    - restart the box+router
    Any suggestions how to solve this problem?

    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 :)
