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!

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...

@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,

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
gboard voice typing?, the google assistant app? the remote integration is depper than just an apk, including keylayout files, customised codec files and more probably :)

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

Hi.

I have a TV Box with a Amlogic S905X cpu. (See attached pdf)

Ive tried to flash this firmware onto my box but as soon as the burn tool start to run, my box switched off immediately. Is there some protection I need to by pass first?

Ive tried going into recovery mode first then connecting the box to my pc, and then loading the firmware on the burn tool, and then starting it, but same result. It as if the box detects the flash attempt and shuts down.

Can anybody shed some light on this for me?

Thanks

hello I have a Dolamee D9 box specs:

CPU: Amlogic S912 Octa-core 2GHz 64-bit ARM Cortex A53
RAM: 1.5GB DDR3
ROM: 8GB Android Marshmallow 6.0
2 USB 2.0 slots
Port Speed: 1000Mbps

So I tried to flash from burn tool ([v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S912]+[ATV+9]+[DDR3+&+DDR4]+[LAN1000])
1st I got some errors like -Erase bootloader/Switch status/Enum device/Enum error- or -Romcode/Switch status/Check connect/Enum device error- . After 2-3 attempts I managed to succesfully burn it but when I open the tv box it goes black. Nothing at all (even the blue light in front of the box is off). I tried to flash other versions succesfully (but always getting 1st error on erase bootloader and 2nd on download uboot) and the result is the same. Any ideas plz??

    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?

    Looks like the T95Q uses the same hardware as the GTmini-a

    T95Q
    SoC: Amlogic S905X2 Quad Core Cortex A-53 (64bit) / GPU Mali-G31 MP2 / 4x ARM-A53 @ 1.8GHz
    System: Android 8.1 Oreo (32bit)
    Ram and storage: 4 GB DDR4 – 32/64 GB eMMC (32GB in review)
    Network: Wifi Dual band + Bluetooth 4.1 (AP6255) – Gigabit Ethernet
    Ports: HDMI 2.1 [email protected] / AV Jack 3.5mm / SPDIF / 1x USB 2.0 / 1x USB 3.0 / MicroSD
    Extras: IR remote control / HDMI cable / Manual / DC 5V 2A adapter

    GTmini-a
    SoC: Amlogic S905X2 Quad Core Cortex A-53 (64bit) / GPU Mali-G31 MP2 / 4x ARM-A53 @ 1.8GHz
    System: Android TV 8.1 Oreo (32bit)
    Ram and storage: 4 GB DDR4 – 64 GB eMMC
    Network: Wifi ac + Bluetooth 4.1 (AP6255) – Gigabit Ethernet
    Ports: HDMI 2.1 4K @ 75fps / AV Jack 3.5mm / 1x USB 2.0 / 1x USB 3.0 / MicroSD
    Extras: Flymouse RF remote with microphone / Cable HDMI / Manual / Adapter DC 5V 2A

    So maybe ill give that a shot.. though i read that the Android 9 Version of the T95Q uses the RTL8822B Wifi Chip not the AP6255 which the Android 8 release does.

    @aidanmacgregor is your T95Q build for the RTL8822B or the AP6255 wifi version?

    Btw more than happy to donate if i get this working! :) also will be another device to add to your list of compatible 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 :)
    4
    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
