Youtube Unbrick Guide

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
SORRY NETFLIX KILLED THE TV NETFLIX MOD

Use RAVE Or The MOBILE APP

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...

Hello, will try later today on Mecool bb2 pro.
  • SoC – Amlogic S912 octo-core ARM Cortex A53 processor @ up to 1.5 GHz with ARM Mali-820MP3 GPU
  • System Memory – 3 GB DDR4
  • Storage – 16 GB eMMC flash + micro SD slot up to 32GB
Is it a good candidate?
How about ir remote?

Hi, Cant Guarantee Remote, Cant Guarantee Anything really, This Is Currently testing, i don't have an s912 device to test on so changes are made blindly and am counting on community feedback on compatibility :)

Hi, Thanks For The Feedback,
The OTA Update Is Attempting To Install The Latest Official Mi Box Firmware, Ad Due To Our Devices Not Being A Genuine Mi Box the Update Fails (And if it did work it would brick the box due to different RAM ,SOC, DTB & Bootloader Once I Obtain The Latest Official Update.Zip I Will Manually Update The Firmware Images, If You Have A Copy Of The Lated Update.Zip Can You Please Upload? Or Tell Me How You Extracted The Update.zip?
Thanks

    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 :)
