Can I use this ROM on Benq QS01 based on S905Y2? How to pair bluetooth remote if newest ROM update states "No Remote Pair Screen"?
the remote pair screen was only for the official mi box remote, you will have to maually pair another bluetooth remote, can use hdmi CEC, keyboard/mouse or connect ethernet and use the android tv remote app, i dont think this device will work but i cant say for sure :)

DId you find any solution after all?

My T95Z Max 2G/16G uses same LPDDR. None of three images works, the box just doing reboot loop after flashing the image. For now I cannot find any working ATV firmware working on this box. Only the non-atv version with 7.1.2 works (Poison4.3) . Any suggestion for the debugging?
I am in the same boat as you, the only solution for me was to revert to the stock firmware.

Can someone tell me how to add the LAN 100 driver to the "12. [v8] Aidan's ROM [s912] fix DDR keeps randomly freezing and restarting -XDA aoliu.img" that avoids random freezes? I can't stand WiFi lag and ethernet wont work with it.

unfortunatley i dont know why your devices are not booting and i dont have an affected device to try and figure this out :)
HI, I have a kii pro s905, and actually use this Android TV room.


Is compatible your room v8 in my box? I think is a s905d but I don't know. Cheers.

@aidanmacgregor

Thank you Sir for this Image rom. it looks really cool and like the look and features of this rom.
I have a few questions please .
ATM I have Slimbox v14 installed on a H96 Pro+ 3/32GB Blue PCB v.6 Board LPDDR.
I am UK based and have problems installing ITV HUB 1.53 Android TV version , which is quite disappointing...I do realize that these Mi boxes do have problems with certain ATV UK based TV apps and mostly need to side load certain apps e.g.: ITV HUB..........Recently thou I read reports that the ITV Hub ATV revision may be compatible ...But sadly I am unable to get this version working correct. Still looking further into this. and also, ALL4....

1: What are the main differences between your Rom v8 build and the Slimbox v14? ... Sorry to ask for a comparison.... But really would like your input.

2: Do you know if the ATV ITV Hub revision app (v1.52, v1.53) works in your version of the Rom image? What UK TV apps have you got working?
I much prefer the Android TV interface and would rather not have to use the mobile versions of the UK TV apps with an air mouse.

Any feedback or further help would be really appreciated Sir.
Thank you.

PS: Just reading through the Thread All 77 pages lol and believe you are in the UK... So please if this is correct and you have working apps for ALL The main UK TV services Plus Any other on demand ATV apps you may have, can you please put them on Google Drive or similar so I can grab them Sir.
I Have just Flashed your v8 image on a spare H96 Pro+32GB LDDR and it seems to be working Fantastic...So really can`t thank you enough for all your work. It states that there is an update...But I know it`s a negative stock ...But will you be incorporating this Latest update into an update package or v9 Build?

PPS: WOW after reading through all 77 pages and comments I see very little reference too.... H96 Pro+ Box`s, maybe 2 or 3 remarks... I’m shocked! .


Update:
I have decided to move back to Slimbox v14 as I feel it`s more feature rich on the H96 Pro Plus box...I think I now know why there are so few posts pertaining to this box in this thread . Still The image of your v8 Build is nice, Thank you for your efforts.... But it`s Just not for the H96 Pro Plus . You have a much more user friendly interface with more functions and features with the Slimbox Build v14 on this Box

Best Regards,

@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

many thanks
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 ?

    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.

    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

    Best Regards,

    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....

    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 :)
