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 :)

    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.

    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 ?

    Thank you
    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
    Press Start
    Plug in the power adapter now !

    Also get a version of USB Burning Tool like v2.1.6.8 where you can untick CheckIMG to see if it makes any difference.

    +1, plugging in power adapter right after it flashes boot (or right after first windows disconnect sound), works every time.

    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 :)

    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
