Is an update available? I failed to do an automatic update and netflix erorr caused the application detection erorr L3 from rom?
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 :)

Hi @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?
no unfortunetley not, netflix blocked the workaround, and a new one after a week :)

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)

  • Box - TX3 MINI (FAKE/CLONE)
  • SoC – Amlogic S905W
  • System Memory – 2 GB
  • Storage – 16 GB
  • WIFI & Bluetooth module– RTL8723
Function that are no longer working:
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

1. this is expected behaviour of official android tv devices, for alway on cast, bluetooth remote (all official remotes are BT)
3. Same as 1, official TV devices dont have this feature (exept maybe shield but they added themselves)
2, 4 & 5, known issuse :)

Hi Aidan,

I tried a few variations: [S912]+[ATV+9]+[DDR3+&+DDR4]+[LAN1000],
[S912]+[ATV+9]+[DDR792]+[LAN1000]+(qca9377)+(H96+Pro+Plus...),
[S912]+[ATV+9]+[SLOW+EMMC]+[DDR3]+[LAN1000]+(M96X+TX9S+M96X+Plus..),
[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?
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 partition :)

    Hi Aidan, have installed the s905x2 , number 3, x96+ max version on my mecool km9 pro.

    All works good (using a Logitech harmony for remote), however if I turn it off for a while I can't turn it back on and have to pull the plug. Is there a way to fix this?

    oh nevermind, searching the thread seems to suggest it's a known issue and to leave it on at all times (might have to rip out the glowing LED!)

    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

    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 :)
