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?

I'm having same issue. From other topic it seems that the fix won't be coming soon, or may not come at all.

Shouldn't this work for Khadas VIM1? Amlogic S905X SoC and AP6212 (b/g/n). Tried flashing AP6212 version img but burning tool throws an error:

[0x10105002]Romcode/Initialize DDR/Read initialize status/USB Control setup error

Anyone able to flash in this device?

Hi everyone. Wow! This is a long thread. But very helpful.

My question is this, I have an X96 Max Plus 2, 4/32GB, It came with the early 2021 stock firmware but wasn't rooted. I flashed the 20200901 stock firmware that is rooted. Box works great but the wifi does not turn on. I am trying to find a firmware .img that is rooted and has the correct wifi drivers. Does the v7 or v8 firmware fix the wifi driver issue and is it rooted? I have attached a pic of my board. I don't know which chip is the wifi.

Thank you ahead of time!

I have the same problem. Android System Update wants to update the system, but the update fails.

Folks,
For the remote control problem I installed "BUTTON-MAPPER", it solved most of my problems. (Just an observation, for some reason the device turns off normally on Power but only turns on the Volume button - nothing that hinders use.
For those who are not able to connect to the PC after installing a ROM and the device turned into a brick, I was also unable to short the pins, what I did was connect the tv box to the PC and put a toothpick in the reset button(I opened the device to fix the toothpick), and after a long time (you have to be patient) the pc recognized the box again, then I managed to do a new installation. My TVBOX is an H96 MAX X2, apart from the original ROM, the only one that worked for me was Aidan's, all the others made my device turn into a brick.
Thank you Aidan for this great job.
I hope my experience can help other people.

Hello. As this firmware is based on the Mi TV Box, this update refers to that specific box. Aidan has made sure that you can NOT do the update as this would break your tv box. Please ignore the update and do not try to do that as it is not meant for your box!

Netflix is an issue generally on most Chinese Android TV Boxes and has nothing to do with any update or firmware. Some guys are working to get us a version of Kodi that is converted into a Netflix app :)

Thank you very much for the clearing, I thought something was wrong with my box.
I'll be waiting for Aidan's update, I'm sure he will soon present us with an excellent update.
Once again congratulations on your commitment and dedication to Aidan.

    The image v8 functions OK on this box and the update you see is the original manufacturer`s update for the MI box which incompatible as you can imagine as we are not using this box , So it will never update via this method. There is NO power managment ON/OFF Feature also.
    I recently tried this image on A H96_pro+specs, Blue PCB 3/32 LPDDR ...But I swiftly moved back to the slimbox v14.2 ATV and it`s really Amazing! All functions are working Great! , Power managment ON/OFF, you can also use OTA updates which Works fine ,This is a Huge feature, Close all running apps function via Double clicking home button , Plus a host of other features ,Without doubt it`s the best build for your box. I would try that Build Mate. Slimbox v14.2 has builds for both the Blue and Green PCB revisions.

    Best Regards,
    Can you give me the link for "slimbox"? for H96Pro+. These are incompatible and won't load. https://slimboxtv.ru/glavnaya/h96-pro-plus/

    Unfortunatley Mate...That links too the same image file I used. My board was the Blue pcb
    sbx_h96_pro_plus_3_32_lpddr_atv_14.2.7z (Updated to 14.4 Via OTA Update)
    What Board and specs is you H96Pro+ ? do you have the Black PCB version?
    I know that these box`s come in many variants so a bit more info may be very useful.
    I have also see posts stating that the Beelink ddr4 images are compatible with some H96Pro+

    A quote from a post I read on slimbox thread Below.There may also be more cross Box image compatible with the h96_pro_plus box..This was just a quick search result.
    ppoon posted this on Oct 25, 2021 #1,599
    "The build of 12.2 Beelink gti u ddr revision can be fully applied to my H96pro+ 3g/32g ddr4. It works perfectly. Thank you."

    What you need to do is 100% make sure what PCB revision you have? what ram and full spec`s ? Before you proceed.......
    PS: Make sure to flash your image via USB Burning tool ONLY for your Best chance with image boot & box compatibility.
    I think it would be best to ask for more info or help on this in the slimbox thread as this thread is for Aidans image v8

    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.

    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....

    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 :)
