Edit: I have the RTL Bluetooth Variant. And that's the one I flashed
Is there no way to patch this ROM to support 3D NAND? I can try myself if someone can tell me what to do

Thanks, but i tried that video and many others. Still no luck.

Also tried shorting out every single connection i could. No luck.

Just dont know why it switches off when i try to flash with burn tool.
There can be some issue in drivers which causes such problems and mask mode is last resort to get rid of issue in an easy way. You should try to reinstall its drivers in windows and try to connect USB cable to PC after opening flash software. There are some other videos available on YouTube to resolve this issue

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??
hmm not sure, deffo odd ram config here at 1.5 gb

    Hello @aidanmacgregor

    I have asked my question here:


    Issue: wifi does NOT work.
    I can turn on the wifi button but it turns off itself in a few seconds.
    Here are the details:
    TV Box - MECOOL M8S PRO L S912 3G 32G DDR3 LB
    HD PCB Pic: https://ibb.co/MBbNvhm
    wifi chip - KM63350528
    Rom Installed : 6.+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S912]+[ATV+9]+[LPDDR3]+[LAN100]+(bcm4335...)+(KM6335)+(M8S+PRO+L+LB...)
    Checked hash MD5 - 8501e5192689f460a7179463f5aef72e and it's correct.
    I installed this ROM via UBT and it was a success.
    Please assist and merry Xmas.
    Regards

    BOX : MyGica ATV 495PRO HDR S905X-B 2GB/8GB with Ampak AP6255 WiFi module

    ROMs Tested for WiFi:
    5.+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S905X]+[ATV+9]+(Ampak+APxxxx+Build+In) <-- WiFi Connects, Very, Very Low Throughput
    6.+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S905X]+[ATV+9]+(Ampak+APxxxx+Multi+Wi-Fi) <-- WiFi Connects, Very, Very Low Throughput
    7.+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S905X]+[ATV+9]+(Ampak+AP6212) <-- Does Not Detect WiFi Network at All
    8.+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S905X]+[ATV+9]+(Ampak+AP6330) <-- Does Not Detect WiFi Network at All
    9.+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S905X]+[ATV+9]+(Ampak+AP6335) <-- Does Not Detect WiFi Network at All
    10.+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S905X]+[ATV+9]+(Ampak+AP6354) <-- Does Not Detect WiFi Network at All
    12.+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S905X]+[ATV+9]+(Mygica+ATV195x-ATV495-ATV598max-Maybe+More...) <-- WiFi Connects, No Internet

    I tried all these ROMs on the ATV 495PRO HDR box hoping one them would have a good WiFi performance and sad to say none of them are any good.

    If @aidanmacgregor would be as kind to do a ROM for the Ampak AP6255 WiFi module to test that would be much appreciated for those of with MyGica ATV 495PRO HDR and ATV 495X HDR boxes. :)

    This is my exact box - the

    X96 MAX Plus 4GB Q2​

    But still every rom I try gives no wifi. Even stock. I'm wondering how to tell if I have Plus 2 or just Plus Q1 or something. Neither roms work though. Did I brick my Wifi?

    edit: seems like my Wifi chip is am7256 - are there any existing ROMs with this wifi?

    edit: the slimbox A100 rom worked for me! As I found this device is X96 MAX PLUS A100 version.

    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 :)
