Hello everyone!

I have a MeCool KM1 Deluxe with AmLogic A905X3 SoC, 4Gb ram and 32Gb storage.
The box is bootlopping into recovery mode after a sudden crash. MeCool support is useless as they wont give me the official .img flashfile to download. At MeCool website there's this zip file with an OTA update to Android 10 but the zip isn't flasheable, its just an packege with the required update files.
So I'm searching all over the net for an official firmware imagefile, even the prior android 9 that the box came with before the Android 10 update.
Since I cant find anything I'm now considering an alternative custom ROM for it and came across this post.
I'd like to know if any of these ROMs will work with it and what ROM is more appropriate for this box....

Thanks in advance for any help.

"I assembled stock firmware ATV9 PI.V7.20200110 under UBT, one firmware for the entire line of KM1 2/16 classic, 4/32 deluxe, 4/64 collective board revision
This firmware was assembled by me personally, NOT from OTA, nothing was changed or modified, 100% stock as from the factory box, everything functions properly as the manufacturer laid down, I personally checked it on KM1 2/16, 4/32 revision KM1_2T2R_V1.1"

Wow!
Thanks a lot!
I've been looking for a solution for months now as MeCool support just stop replying me when I showed them that problem was not simple as wiping the box to system factory settings. They wont give me a flashimage file.
I'll try this image as soon as I get an USB-A to USB-A cable.

Do you know if there's any working armbian image for this box?
As this box is shelved for months while I was looking for a solution, I also considered repurposing it as home server for light aplications.

Hi ! As every account of Aidan is down, does anyone has a copy of the latest version he can send to me ? I couldn't find any reliable link...

Hi,

Is there a list of different box tested with their level of compatibility and/or difficulties encountered?

Hello everyone!

So I've successfully flashed Aidan's V9 ROM into a s912 android tv dongle (H96 pro). Everything works great except for the wifi / bluetooth. After opening the device's case, I found out that my wifi / bluetooth chip is a RTL8723BS.

After reading and searching the thread, I found few with same problem. I know Aidan has provided some ROMs with RTL wifi / bluetooth driver for S905 devices (e.g. [v8] Aidan's ROM [S905W] [ATV 9] (RT8723bs) (X96 Mini TX3 Mini X96W...).img)

But, since there's no ROM option for s912 with RTL drivers, does anyone know the simpliest way I can patch Aidan ROM's kernel with the RTL8723BS driver into a s912 device?

Is this a 64-bit Rom? I would like to run Dolphin on the M8S Pro L (S912) box which requires 64-bit architecture.

I have been testing this out with some S912 Boxes I have and am pretty happy with the performance of this ROM. I have multiple S912 Boxes that are the same on several TV's I uses with AirBnB rentals. I would like all these to be "Identical" in how they look, feel, and operate. This said, is there a way for me to Clone one of my S912 boxes to place that image on 5 other's without going through a full set up and app load on each of the boxes individually? This would also provide me with a restorable backup! Any thought would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You!
    with aml_upgrade_package.img successfuly.

    I was getting the same error, kept bombing out on UBOOT step.
    For me the fix was to hold reset button after starting flash, keep holding until UBOOT step fishes, then release reset button.

    This worked 3 different times for me, so hopefully it helps.

    Has anyone yet found a solution for using a Fn-Link 8223A-SR bluetooth device?

    I have a S905W (v1.0 board) with 8223A-SR C12001 1748 chip on it. Trying a bunch of the firmwares available for download, I can get everything to work except bluetooth.

    I've seen suggestions that a Q9337 driver might work, but I don't see that on any of the S905W image filenames. Is there a way to replace the driver afterwards or something?

    Also, I notice that the buttons on the remote seem to work differently from firmware to firmware. Usually the back button does nothing (but right mouse click on a USB keyboard works?), sometimes the OK button does nothing... is there any way to customize this?

    Edit: After unsuccessfully trying all the S905W firmwares, I noticed there was one S905X firmware that mentions QCA9337: 3. [v9] Aidan's ROM [S905X] [ATV 9] (RTL, QCA9377, LTM8830).img

    I tried this one, and it did boot. (I was not sure if S905X is supposed to be compatible with S905W or what?) I did successfully pair my bluetooth headphones, but unfortunately it is silent. :( Can't seem to do anything to get it to make sound, but at least it can pair?

    It seems the audio just always is sent to HDMI no matter what. After pairing the headphones, I can press the volume up/down buttons and there's now a bluetooth icon on the volume indicator... but the audio itself only goes to the HDMI. These headphones work fine when paired with other devices, and this feature did work correctly on the firmware that original came with the device (but unfortunately that firmware has been lost).

    Incidentally, this S905X firmware also makes Power OK and Back buttons work from my remote as expected. (Somehow the 3 universal S905W firmwares were each different from each other about which buttons worked? It's a strange inconsistency.)

    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 :)
