OTA ewont work as we dont have mi boxes, the rom was always L3, netflix was modified to ignore its certifacation requirements and also the widevine level 1 requirement, netflix blocked it, another soloution was found and netflix blocked again within a week
now from waht i can remember the vim board have a diffrent usual flashing method, im not too fammilliar with these boards though
i need to manually release an update based on this mi box ota(November Update Fails / Error 21?) Hi @aidanmacgregor, I received a System Update on November now. I download and reboot system but always get error to update. Error 21. But I can reboot and use normally. Just don't can finish update. Have I do more one thing to sucess the update? Thanks. My version is v8 Aidan's Custom ATV 9 ROM [PI.3595 release-keys] My Tv Box is Mini M8S II (I guess).
i think someone sucsessfully installed, reported non working USB, but they used an USB C to USB A adapter to use the usb C port for usb devices
no unfortunetley not, netflix blocked the workaround, and a new one after a weekHi @aidanmacgregor
just updated to the latest version of your ROM (V8), it was working great. I like the clean version of it.
But then I realized that Netflix is not working with the UI-113 error message. And it seems will not have any fix or update anytime soon.
I was planning to revert back to V7, because I was able to watch Netflix on that very version. Do you think if I'm reverting back to V7 will allow me to watch Netflix with the modded apk version?
1. this is expected behaviour of official android tv devices, for alway on cast, bluetooth remote (all official remotes are BT)
Tested in my box, only the wifi works (bluetooth doesn't work) and the control doesn't work some functions.
Tested Version: 10,4. [v8] ROM de Aidan [S905W] (tx3mini)
Function that are no longer working:
- Box - TX3 MINI (FAKE/CLONE)
- SoC – Amlogic S905W
- System Memory – 2 GB
- Storage – 16 GB
- WIFI & Bluetooth module– RTL8723
1. OFF BUTTON - the box is in suspension, it does not turn off.
2. HOME - does not go back to the home screen
3. OPTIONS - The original function was to show apps opened in the background
4. VOLUME UP - does not work
5. VOLUME LOW - does not work
will never work as needs widevine level 1 DRM
ok so a working image yes, but must also be android 9, and then can try the sys/prod/logo. android 7 is before project treble so the structure is vastly diffrent, like no vendor partitionHi Aidan,
I tried a few variations: [S912]+[ATV+9]+[DDR3+&+DDR4]+[LAN1000],
[S912]+[ATV+9]+[SLOW+EMMC]+[DDR3]+[LAN1000]+(Slow+EMMC+4.5+Devices). Unforunately , none of them works. It either hangs at boot logo, or is in a reboot loop.
The hardware is U2C X-plus: S912 core, 2G DDR (Micron MT41K256M16), 16G emmc (THGBMAG7A2JBAIR), 1G Lan (RTL8211F), and AW-CW273SM ( QCA9377 based) wifi+BT.
You recommended starting with a working img and replacing log/system/product partitions with yours. Do you know which variation you had is closest to my hardware? Also, the working 7.1.2 image doesn't have production partition. Should I use your one as the baseline, and copy over boot/recovery/_aml_dtb partitions? One of hurdles is _aml_dtb partition: dts show yours and mine are quite different. What's your recommendation? Should I used yours as baseline, as it matches kernel/drivers better? If so, which sections should I port over besides custom_maps/ethernet?
this is a google android bug, affects every android tv 9 device out thereHello, I tried to install a VPN app on V8 on a Meecool M8S PRO (eth 100 variation) but it then disconnects from internet. The box is using cable of course, but when activating VPN it somehow shows that ethernet cable is disconnected (no internet until unplug/re-plug).
i suspect its DTB/uboot issue, try rickys tool, unpack only to level 1and take my system & vendor.PARTITIONS and swap in atvX v5 beta and flash, one side effect will be less user space as atvX has more spre room from before v5 but i have same device so has 16Gb rather than limited 8GB
Thanks for replying on this and other question i had with other box. On this m8s pro + i did get sound by forcing audio transcode, by settings in plex for passthrough-optical then it lets you select codecs and uncheck ac3 will force plex to transcode audio to mp3. that's enough for me. i use mythtv and someone there made an app for playback from mythtv server that use exoplayer and he made an option to use ffmpeg for audio instead of mediacodec. on that (same player plex uses), there was no audio on any ac3 > 2 channel,. but the ffmpeg worked. Thanks for your great work. the rom breathes life into these old boxes. on the 912, nothing i tried worked but yet the last release for that box on coreelec is working pretty well and they manage the wifi and bluetoooth, but that is on the original kernel not a later kernel,.
Try it with not plugging in the power adapter first.Hello, thank you for your work! !!
I have a leelbox m9s Pro s912 with a red cardboard "M8S_S912_V1.0 2016-08-18, WIFI LTM8830 DDR3 LAN 1000 and all the rom's I used stop either at 7% with the error "[0x32030201]Uboot/Get result/DiskInitial error" with the rom numbers s912:
Or 2% error "[0x10105002]Romcode/Initialize DDR/Read initialize status/USB Control setup error" with rom numbers s912:
- 1.[v7] Aidan's ROM [S912] [ATV 9] [LPDDR3] [LAN100] (qca9377) (ltm8830) (M8S PRO L LS..)
I tried with Amlogic burning tool 2.2.0, 2.1.7 (crash all the time), 2.0.8, 2.1.6, 3.2.0, 3.1.0
I used 3 different USB cables on 3 different PCs.
In all case screen stay black
I don't have to Pin to be recognise by Amlogic Burning tool
The led stay blue.
If I use USB BURN CARD, i have green screen
One of your old roms worked this summer but I can't remember which one.
Can you help me, or by box is dead ?
+1, plugging in power adapter right after it flashes boot (or right after first windows disconnect sound), works every time.Try it with not plugging in the power adapter first.
Open USB Burning Tool and upload the firmware you want to flash
While holding down on the Power button insert the USB cable into your PC
USB Burning Tool should pair with your box now
Plug in the power adapter now !
Also get a version of USB Burning Tool like v126.96.36.199 where you can untick CheckIMG to see if it makes any difference.
you often need to reboot into recovery (by reset button on boot or the factory erset option like in my video) as it will go back unrooted if rebooted normally, just choose factory reset and it will reboot rooted@aidanmacgregor I've tried your recovery patching and image repacking technique on... another popular rom. I find it works briefly and then turns to poop.
am I correct in assuming it's much more successful on your own roms ? if it is can your roms take a regular android launcher like Nova ? I don't really want the ATV style screens
EDIT: also does the 4/32 for the X96 Max Plus 2 work on the 4/64 version without eating half it's storage ?
EDIT 2: flashed the rom anyway as there wasn't much of an alternative, does this rom have an issue with SDXC memory cards ?
ahh forgot to add changelog here put on the s912 & s905w post haha will copy here
