Hello everyone, hello @aidanmacgregor ,
Thx for this work.
I have a box with cpu 912 3/32gb from bqeel mini m8s PRO.
And i managed to install a generic versio 3/4 1000 Lan, but the issue i have now is the hdmi audio. Actually the pcm works and some 5.1 - i think dts and 5.1 eac is not working. (Passtrough).

In the box settings under Audio exists only pcm/spdif/auto/ manual ( no hdmi?)

I will try another ROM but i see they have LAN 100 - does that means 100mbs connection?

Also the one with slow eemc- what that means?

Is there any suggestion to what should i pay attention when flahsing?

Thanks in advance



-------------------------
Update:


Now i have much more info.
I tried a couple of different ROMs, and the ones i manages to install have the same issue. Not sure if something means, but my device has SPDF as well. Anyway, if i play some video with 5.1 in plex or even in VLC and trying to use passthrough, it simple doesn't work, is not sending the audio (before the update was working).

The ROMS i managed to install are from universal GENERIC the ones wiht LAN 1000 (lan100 is not working

My device was named in old system as Mini M8s PRO (Bqeel) 912 - 3g / 64g and the board q201

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,.
Hey @glenb77 , i have probably the same device. Have you managed to use PLEX and 5.1 audio?

Thank you but it is not working.
I installed termus (Version 0.118.0).
when I type su it shows "termux no su program found on this device"
when I type sudo reboot update it shows "no superuser binary detected"

Do you know how to get root Permissions?
Did you find any solution? I also thought I'd try the version 8. But it's only available for V2 variant. It's not there for p2

hi, have h96 x3 intall the rom update march 2022 but have a problem, all works great but if I unplug the power cord it doesn't turn on again.
 
@aidanmacgregor Thanks for your work !

Sugestion: since competitor(s) now has "minislimtv" version too, have you ever considered to build a "Google-free" (= privacy oriented) custom ROM for these risky Chinese boxes too ?

We already suggested this idea on \e\ forums too, of course:

Hope that inspires !

Hello from the download link of Android box Beelink GT1 Ultimate.

I can't find the firmware of Beelink GT1 Ultimate spec AP6255+ DDR4.

in which there is only
[v9]+Aidan's+ROM+(GT1+Ultimate)+(AP6255)+[S912]+[ATV+9]+[LPDDR3]+
and
[v9]+Aidan's+ROM+(GT1+Ultimate)+(QCA9377)+[S912]+[ATV+9]+[DDR4]+

I don't know which one I can use.
My box's serial number A706D0.
AP6255+ DDR4 Specifications
 
We recently discovered this *VERY* interesting 3ad:


The author recently claims: Fun fact - GXL/GXM support is incoming.
 
Formatted and reinstalled Aidan's Rom V8, on Windows 11 using the tool for my X96 Max Plus! So, can confirm it's working with no issues! Just uninstall and reinstall version 2.2.0 of the tool! Maybe Windows 11 is having problems detecting the drivers! After reinstalling, It detects devices normally!
Ur mean uninstall and reinstall burningtool in win11? When plugin androidtv?

Hi Aidan,
Great Rom, I've been using it for some time now. I noticed that updates are not frequent, I know that it must be a difficult job to port the rom to so many devices with different characteristics. In my case I have an H96 Max X2. As well as some reports here, I also have some bugs. Will a V10 come out with these fixes?

Hi guys!

Regarding HD Streaming issue with PrimeVideo and other apps because of widevine L3...
I found this method using Magisk to change the widevine to L1.



Has anyone tried it and know if it really works? I tried to install Magisk on my box (a95x f3 air s905x3) but I couldn't.


Thanks! :)

Own an Android 7.1.2 2GB Ram / 8 GB Rom, 2.4/5G Wifi.
FCC ID: 2AGKBATVM8S (OEM Customized by IPTV provider)
Looks 100% identical to the M8S Plus DVB T2 S905X2 Android 9.0 TV Box
https://m.made-in-china.com/product/OEM-Customize-M8s-Plus-DVB-T2-Quad-Core-CPU-2GB-16GB-Smart-Android-9-0-TV-Box-1953971595.html

Android Recovery Menu Says
Amlogic/p21x/p21x
7.1.2/NHG47L/20190327.200711.V0123
How do I check the exact Amlogic processor number?

I am trying to flash [v9] Aidan's ROM
https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/v9-aidans-rom-s905x-s905w-s912-s905x2-s905y2-s905x3-s905w4-s922-android-tv-9-disney-google-play-certified-root.4199287

I pressed the reset key it took me to the Android recovery menu
Selected Apply update from ADB and tried the USB Burning Tool
PC did not detect the box (Used USB C to USB A cable to connect the box.
Got the following message
failed to set driver control
Now send the package you want to apply to the device with "adb sideload <filename>"

Tried Apply update from EXT and selected udisk
Downloaded Aidan Rom's image & saved as dtb.img in Fat 32 formatted USB
However, it does not show the dtb.img file when I try to flash from USB

Do I have to do anything else

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Thank you in advance.

    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....

    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 :)
