Can someone please tell me the rom to use for this old mxq pro 4k i pulled out of the closet. i tried figure out if it is a 905w or 905x? i ran cpu-id but it does not tell . it seems to be an original one from 2016 with p201 bootloader

i will attach the pictures.

Please let me know which version of v9 will work on this or which is the best one to use.

Thanks

Hi Aidan, is there any chance you could supply us with firmware for JL2101 version of X96 Max Plus? It uses RTL8822CS (Fn-Link 6222B-SRC) radio module with JL2101 ethernet. Linux drivers are obtainable from here: https://www.jlsemi.com/support.html Thanks in advance and keep up the good work :D

Aidan Rom won't boot on Tox1 (Encrypted), it gets stuck on the logo of AndroidTV. I flashed it with "USB_Burn _Tool 2.2.0" and used version "[v9] Aidan's Rom (TOX1 Encrypted) (After v1.4) [S905X3] [ATV9]"

hello everyone, I have the p281 (Tanix 3 mini A) S9012p wifi card and when loading the ROM via SD everything is fine until it reaches the "androidtv" bootloader screen and it does not finish loading. then update I have done a factory reset and that the ROM initialized from scratch but it still remains stuck in the bootloader. Is there any way to fix that or do I just have to go back to previous firmware and discard this rom because it won't boot?

Hi, does this rom come with any vulkan libs?
Replying my own question for anybody interested:
YES, it does come with Vulkna libs and they work perfectly with both RetroArch and PPSSPP, performance of the S905X3 is impressive with this rom and libs. The only issue I found so far is that at least my device, HK1 Box (the one with a pink / blue / green top lid) has some bad wakelocks, which make the device turn on / off by itself every now and then, even when it should stay in deep sleep after pressing the power button. By the way, I had to use the Vontar X3 image file, the HK1 image didn't work, device wouldn't boot.

Hello everyone, there is simply no case with the p281 amlogic S905W Rev 1.4 motherboard, the S9012p wifi chip does not work well and those who have this chip, I think the best option is a wifi to rj45 adapter and thus physically patch this problem . I have tried more than 10 different roms and loaded using the SD and cable method, the end result is always the same, the driver crashes and stops working.

I was able to pair a xiaomi remote control on a tv box a95x f2 with aidan v9, everything works fine, but when I press the google assistant button the assistant does not listen to me, it stays listening but does not respond to my voice, does anyone know a solution for this? I would like to be able to use my voice to control the tv box.

Hi Aidan,Thanks for your work.



I have flashed this to 2 of my Boxes.



The X96 Air P2 4G/32GB - the remote doesnt work and i cant use a keyboard on it, so i'll have to revert back.



Mecool M8s Pro + S905X (2GB/16GB) Works OK but no Wifi 9082xs chip. But i also use a EDUP USB WiFI which has a RTL8811AU chipset. that doesnt work either.

X96 Air 100 and P1
On both, confirming this, rom does install and functions properly. Basically 99% of remote controls do not fuction. I have a air mouse/keyboard remote and has same issue as the x96 remote.
So it seems its x96 variant wide issue.

ALSO:
Installed on S912 (X92) everything seems to function, besides the front panel LED display (I think has been mentioned in this thread).

Edit: Before I flashed AidenRom it showed up as the air 100 model if im not mistaken. So I opened it up to confirm some things.....but it has the new/less known AM7256 (BCM4354 packaged?) not the chip that is referred for the air 100 model.
Don't plan on opening the P1 unless necessary.

@andy_marc Edit 2: As far as the Mecool M8s Pro+ try ATVx rom? I have this box also, but unsure of internals.

I flashed the X96 Air Q100 firmware for my X96 air A100 and the remote works fine, but the wifi doesn't work. How do you get the wifi to work for X96 Air ?

Ah, the q100 must have the correct mapping? Wouldn't matter though if wifi was bonked and vise versa.
#1 Make sure to open and verify what wifi chip/package is in it since there are 8 revisions I believe now.
#2 Both my airs are now running slimbox (caveat: I had to flash the "x96 max plus a100" version to get wifi, but my P1 model worked correctly the first flash. This is because the air a100 has the newer wifi chip)
My x92 s912 box is running ARom without led display.

In my case, the air remote part worked and selection, but all other functions like up down home return etc. did not on either of my ax96s. But wifi worked.

    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
    I can't get root permission I have install slimbox instead of Aidan's ROM.

    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 :)
