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.
Hello, if you make this fixes can you share build ? Thanks.

Hello,
I have a Tanix TX3 Max with Wifi/BT RTL8723bs. I have tried many ROMs and almost all of them either the bluetooth didn't work or there was some other bug or problem.
Finally I find the almost perfect ROM, the aidans v9 RTL8723, this rom works perfectly, fast, wifi / bt work, streaming in FULLHD, USB and SD work, in short, I think at the moment it is the definitive rom for TX3 MAX.
After all this praise, I have to tell you why I ask for help. The original remote control doesn't work and neither does the clock (not bad), but I've seen that there is a way to remedy both things. Can someone kindly guide me through the procedure?

Dear all,

I am running the MAG410 now with the V9 of this rom which is running the S905X chipset.

Everything is working except a couple of things:
1. The remote control is not working. (how can I change this?)
2. WIFI is slow. I did a speed test on it and indeed it is not getting much speed
3. I tried 2 Streaming apps KPN Itv and Go TV (Malta). Both are not working. I suspect it is the issue with the speed.

Can anyone help on the topic?

Thanks,

Thierry

I flashed your rom.on Beelink GT1 mini 4/64 (S905x2) LPDDR and it works awesome.
Box is faster 50% than with beelink stock android.
Very thank you and proceed your work.
I have too one newer box, Ugoos AM6B Plus 2021, 4/32 and i am using it for different stuff. It is clean android rom. This old Beelink i will use on Sony bravia tv from 2017. which have really poor hardware, outdated MT5891 with 4 core x 1.0 Ghz. 2/8 Gb memory..

Check which wifi chip the TV box has installed, for example I tried about 10 different ROMs and in any case the wifi worked with all of them, but obviously with some I had streaming speed problems. Since I installed the version with specific drivers for my chip, I haven't had any more connection problems.
As far as the remote control is concerned, I found a guide that explains how to manually fix the files for the remote controls by completely rewriting the codes, I'll try and let you know.

Thanks in advance Wartere. I tried several and this one works best so far. Have you seen other S905x ROMs?

I've got a Mecool m8s pro W. Now, I've tried this ROM before with no luck so I was hoping someone else have already tested last version. It has the 6051p chipset which is known for having WIFI issues.

Just to be clear It's an AMLogic S905W
I believe it was on january, before the last version. I couldn't get it to flash, don't really remember which error I got. Ended up using the Nexus Rom instead, which works for the most part but is slow. I've searched through the comments and found someone with this chipset did'nt say if he had the 6051p WIFI chip but he couldn't get WIFI to work

Wait to thank, I'm not an expert, I'm going to try! However I've read that someone, with the mag10 was happy with the v8. Now let's move on to the results: I managed to get the box to read my remote control! I discovered that the "remote.tab" of some remote controls that are around or in ROMs, are based on file conversions of the old android 7 ROMs, but on version 9 some codes have changed! So, with great patience, I went through all the codes and changed the ones that no longer matched and added the right configuration for my remote.

Can anyone recommend me a good program to cook android ROMs? And possibly not too complicated?
I tried amlogic tools but beyond lvl1 it fails.

Dear all, I have now managed to have a good running V9 on my Mag410.

I remain with 3 issues:
1. Remote Control not working.
I managed to find the remote files of the original MAg410 box. the files are slightly different though.
On the Mag410 there are two files. In the \Bin\remotecfg and in Etc\remote.conf.

I copied all of the info of the remote.conf into remote.tab1, but still the remote is not working...anybody able to help me out ?

2. The standby light is always on, even when the box is running. Anything we can do about this?

3. I tried running some streaming service called GO Malta. Unfortunately at time of loading it says it can't play the content. It mentions we cannot initiate playback since the original configuration for this device was modified.

Anything we can do about this?

Would be great if you guys can help on the above items. Cheers all.

    Hello Dears, i have good news, after 3 days of hard work, i archivied install news remote controls, this ROM not accept changes on archives .kl like generic.kl, u have change the files .tab, like remote.tab1, 2, 3, etc. You must go up the path /vendor/etc and paste the new files, the files work's fine with this control.

    *ROOT IS NECESSARY*

    Thanks @mAtvXk for the help!

    Of course, you can only add new files .tab changing the final number like tab1,2,3,4,5,6.

    The files it's here.

    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.

    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 :)
