Aiden's ROM V8 not support NTFS and ExFAT, I'm using "MLUSB mounter" to explore files. ExFAT and NTFS is only accessable through this app. You can play videos in Kodi by click throuh this app. remote arrow button will not work in this app nor mouse button, mouse button also not work in Aiden's ROM. you have to use third-party air mouse to work it out..

Someone modify Aiden's ROM, publish an update ROM with Filesystem, remote fixes. dolby Atmos module (if possible) and TWRP included ROM.

A95X F3 Air user here: Flashes correctly, however: OK button on remote doesn't work, can't proceed without a mouse. Other than that, the MAC addresses get incorrectly set, they seem to be hardcoded since I flashed the ROM on two different boxes and both ended up with the same MAC addresses. Other than that, rom is beautiful. I'll see if I can fix the tiny issues and republish the A95X build.

hi anybody can help me to know this rom is compitable with amlogic s905d series?
what is the difference between s905d series & other amlogic soc such as listed above , becuase i cant find any custrom rom for it ?
 
hi

first of all thanks to the maker of this rom Aidan for taking the time to port this ROM to our oldie but goodie android boxes

so i have an H96 Pro Plus (3gb/32gb), and for the past 2 weeks been going nuts about why cant i flash rom and get stuck at 2% always. first off i got the proper USB A to A cable, flashing with power adaptor on too. and i think i get my system specs right, my board is CZ-S32-v2.2, which according to another ROM editor Shonk is DDR3 (cpuid and similar apps dont give out system info)

so as i said, getting myself nuts over trying to figure out why can't i flash this thing even when im 98% sure i am using right ROM for my system.

As a side note, my main PC is an AMD machine (Ryzen 5 1600), and i have a crappy laptop that runs a Celeron N2920.

Today i decided to flash it using my crappy laptop. and lo and behold, it just took me 2 tries to flash it correctly!!! (first try i havent plugged power adaptor yet) i used 2. [v9] Aidan's ROM [S912] [ATV 9] [DDR3 & DDR4] [LAN1000].img

So, if anybody out there still wondering about 2% flashing error, and you run on an AMD based machine, you might need to look for Intel based PC to flash this thing with the AMLOGIC USB burning tool.




also, is audio passthrough not working in V9? i backread and people said V8 had it? in Kodi and VLC

and how to properly turn off this thing, as there is no software power off button?

Guys, I need your support. I have SDMC DV8545-T2/C. SoC: Amlogic S905X2, CPU Quad-core 1.8 GHz (ARM Cortex-A53), ARM Mali-G31 MP2, 2 GB Ram, 16 GB storage, Android 9. Is it possible it will work with Aidan's firmware? The branded one in my box is absolutely disgusting and full of bugs. What is more, every single update from the Chinese manufacturer, the box resets everything I have set. I'm losing my patience. Thanks a lot for your answer.

I just wanted to say thank you to Aidan for this ROM and to provide some pointers for others with a T95Q device.

I believe mine is the "first" version as it came with 8.1 stock.

A few pointers:

A USB A to C cable didn't work - a cheap Amazon A to A (£2) worked fine.

The USB flashing tool latest versions didn't work. You have to use the most recent v2 tool as the v3 tool just tries to call the v2 tool when you open the image.

The v1 ROM appears to be the correct one for the 8.1 devices.

Initial observations:

WiFi and Bluetooth both seem to be working fine!

The remote that came with it is functional enough (OK, home, arrow keys work fine). I've got a FLIRC USB adapter that I'm going to try and use to fix the broken buttons.

The ROM feels snappy

VPN is a bit hit and miss. Connecting once knocked out my ethernet for some reason and speeds vary between 20 and 120 Meg.

Can't work out why - maybe a processor bottleneck.

Today i tried the latest version on my F3 AIR which has wifi chipset Mediatek MT7668 RSN.

Remote working, but OK button not recognised on certain places like click on Settings.
Wifi working,
Box running at fairly cool temparature,

Blutooth is able to search deviceses and prompts pair dialogue but after clicking pair, it says couldn't connect. So Bluetooth is no good in my box.


Prime Video Android TV version don't work, says issue with HDMI cable.

Not verified the regular version which was working in original Android version, i think that should work fine.

Hi were you able to find any solution to Bluetooth and OK button not functioning correctly on F3 Air?
Netflix did not open, just a check though i don't use it.

Hello everyone. I'd like to update my device from V8 to V9. Is it possible to update somehow (update.zip for example) current rom or I have to flash it from ground up? I'd like to keep all my apps and avoid the struggle installing them again and logging back in.

Mecool K5 with DVB (s905x3), do you build rom for it?
Hope you build rom for it !
Here is the stock rom :
K5_AVL6862-PPR1.180610.011-V9.20210312.193925.img

Update OTA zip : K5-ota-V9.20210406.121256

hi Aidan thank you for your amazin job! I also own a mecool k5 (s905x3 with RTL822CS and dvb t2/s2 decoder) it already has an android 9 version but it's really bad. Can you please consider to port your atv ROM? There is already a guy working on it if that can help https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...oted-rom-android-9-atv.4415319/#post-87299871
p.s. I already tried flashing a95db and various x96 ROMs but none of them worked.

    Hi, v9 link is dead so m8s pro lb version share please.

    Hello,

    I have a H96 Pro H3 and I am facing difficulties getting it to work with most AndroidTV ROMs. It has S905X, but for some reason all of the S905X builds I have tested detect only 1GB of RAM (out of 2GB). S905W builds detect 2GB. This goes for both Aidan's ROM and atvXperience v2 and v4 (the link for S905X v5 beta is no longer valid). None of the builds detect the built-in Wi-Fi/Bluetooth (HS2734A), but this is fine as it was pathetic anyway. While atvXperience does work with USB Wi-Fi adapters (I've used it with TL-WN725N (RTL8188EUS)), Aidan's ROM does not seem to detect any of the ones I've tried - TL-WN725N (RTL8188EUS) and TL Archer T2U Nano (RTL8811AU).

    Is there a way to make it work with external Wi-Fi adapters? It seems even the builds for RTLxxx do not include drivers for my adapters. I do not like rooted ROMs and atvXperience is quite bloated, so I prefer Aidan's ROM for now.
    Is it a problem to run S905W builds on H96 Pro H3? atvXperience v4 for S905W runs fine, but I dual-boot with coreELEC19 and coreELEC is really unstable. I guess I will try dual-booting CoreELEC with the stock ROM for H96 Pro H3.

    P.S. How do you turn off your devices? Pull the plug?

    It will be off-topic, but how to add this wifi driver to android tvbox later, if there is a tutorial video or topic, can you share with us.
    i believe you will need to decompile, inject and then recompile the kernel.

    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 :)
