@aidanmacgregor Hi, I have T95Q box with s905x2 Soc. I assume it should work with this rom, but i wanted to confirm with you before i take the plunge. is your rom compatible with T95Q? Sorry if someone has already asked this.

Also, right now I'm running alvatech rom that's built for beelink GT, i can't remember the version name exactly. But it does run on my T95Q okay. However recently I subscribe disney+ hotstar, strangely its app won't work. I wanted to try your rom mainly to get disney+ to work on my box.
Again most of his ROMs will work with an Ethernet connection. If you are using WiFi then you need to check which WiFI module your box uses and pick the ROM that has the drivers for your box's WiFi radio. Most of the IR buttons on your stock remote will not work, but the air mouse buttons will.

I do use wifi connection, and i did find t95q version rom image on his file host. But then again, i found out that there is actually 2 difference version of T95Q wifi chip. I think mine is the older revision, i wanted to make sure the rom works for older revision or not..

Make sure you have the stock firmware for your T95Q box first before you try anything. This way you can revert back to the stock ROM if you don't like the new ROM.

Unfortunately i dont have the stock firmware, currently I'm running alvatech rom, if something happens i supposed i can go back to alvatech rom instead of stock firmware right?

If you have another AML based ROM that you can flash with the USB Burning Tool then yes can recover, but if you only have a SD card update type ROM then no.

What would be best rom to flash on my leeibox kingbox k3 s912?
I've tried installing every version of this on a Kingbox K3, but none of them worked. Admittedly this was back on v4 last year, so things may have improved since then. Some of them gave the same error due to RAM during flashing, others were showing a black screen and not booting at all, no matter how much I waited. The only custom ROM I managed to flash on a K3 is Red Poison ATV, for which the WiFi doesn't work, but the IR remote does. I'd like to try out the new version of Aidan's because it looks miles better and see if it improves the poor performance of the box as even with the custom ROM it's very slow and prone to apps crashing, but that will have to wait a few days.

Don't think any of his ROMs would work with that chipset or WiFi module. Even a S905 chip is not compatible, you need a S905X, S905X2, S905X3 and S912. I guess you can try if you have a copy of the stock firmware to revert back to if these don't work.

No, you already have the original Mi Stick, why would you want to anyways when a true Mi Stick can update to newer ROMs via OTA.
In description this thread is S905Y2 which is in mi tv stick and mi tv stick didn´t find new update. on device is PI.832 firmware a newer can´t find. And i like custom rom. Some solution? Thanks for reply.

First, thank you Aidan for the great work!!!

I have Beelink GT1 Ultimate, S912, LPN1 version, 3GB, AP2655 (pictures in attachment).

I have flashed this rom: "[v8] Aidan's ROM [S912] [ATV 9] [LPDDR3] [LAN1000] (qca9377) (h96 pro. tx9pro 3G..).img" + MAGISK.
Is this a correct rom for my device?

I love this rom and everything is working smooth except:
1. WIFI - any patch for AP2655?
2. Bluetooth - didn't find devices
3. HBO Go ATV - is working but when i play any video the circle in the middle is rotating and video never start.
4. I use CoreElec for my movie library, and sometimes I what to boot from sdcard, but without success. I try apk like "Reboot to LibreElec", device restart but not boot from sdcard, i try terminal emulator with "su" command and "reboot update" command, same...device restart but not boot from sdcard.

If you have any solutions for my problems, please share with me.
Thanks in advance.

Hi all,

HI, I tried this one on my X96 Air:

[v8] Aidan's Rom [S905X3] (x96 air v2) XDA-XDA-AcidIce18.img


But I'm getting the error 0x32030201 uboot/diskinitial

Can someone help please?

Regards.

EDIT : I managed to get it working by flashing 2 times, first without Erase bootloader and flash checked, and second with it selected. Now I can see an OTA system update, but when the box reboots to install it is giving an error related to signature (failed to verify whole-file signature). What can I do?

EDIT2: Ok, I already saw that OTA updates are not supported. I already updated all apps from play store, but still not getting new UI, what can I do?

hello.
i have installed this rom in A95x F2 (s905x2) and it seems to work fine, except the return button of the original infrared remote seems to don't make the return function and it's impossible to navigate in the OS without the return function.
is there any way to get this solved?

Use an app called Button Mapper, find the one called Button Mapper Pro to get more features. This is the only way to get IR functions onto an air mouse.

I have a "Beelink GT1 mini_a" with serial number B95X (not exactly as the Beelink GT1 mini with SN = S95X2), I have tried the 6 ROM:

1. no power LED, no internet (wired)
2. install failed
3. no power LED, no internet (wired)
4. install failed
5. no power LED, no internet (wired)
6. install failed

Any help on what goes wrong with this box ?

[EDIT]
Wifi is working
Ethernet is not working
The LED is lit when the box is ON and unlit when the box is on
The box gets definitely hotter than with the previous ROM or CoreELEC

    Can anyone please guide me in the right direction?

    I have an Xiaomi mi tv stick and just can’t get it connected in the amlogic usb burn tool.
    So please any advice or instruction if possible.

    Thanks
    So you want to flash the same firmware on your stick that you are using anyway?

    Plus: You will lose Widevine. So what's the point?

    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 :)

    Is it and Android TV apk, or an apk of the mobile app? Can you share the link to that?
    Android TV apk I will upload the link
