Do not flash any ROM if you do not have the original full AML ROM for your box that can be flashed back using the Amlogic USB Burning Tool. If your box is already bricked then flashing these ROM is better than having no ROM to flash ! The biggest issue with 3rd party ROMs is proper fuctionality of the Wi-Fi radio, but will work with an Ethernet connection as it doesn't require any drivers in the ROM for it to work.

I'm sure everything is correct. and also try every USB ports still can't detect my tvbox.
now I download SLIMBOX and use Burn_Card_Maker to create a bootable SD card and it can work to install a new ROM.
Thank for you help.

After installed the new ROM I still can't detect it from my PC by push reset on the A/V port, But at least I can install a new ROM for SD card. if i want to install Aidan's ROM from SD card is there any documents?
You can't install an AML ROM straight via the SD card method !
You can try to convert the AML ROM with Amlogic_Burn_Card_Maker_v2.0.3 to a SD Card ROM so you can flash in the Recovery Mode only if the your TV box's bootloader is not corrupted.

Some TV box manufacturers only supply the SD Card version of the ROM <--- Your screwed if your box bricks while flashing
Some TV box manufacturers only supply the AML version of the ROM
Some TV box manufacturers supply both the AML and SD Card version of the ROM <---Best case scenario
Some TV box manufacturers do not supply the stock ROM at all !

Slimbox is a very good rom, I used it until Aidan's v9 came out. You can continue trying to flash with amlogic burning tool since what slimbox has root and I think that in its settings you can enter update mode, or finally you can try the mask rom method. The rom of aidan I understand is not flashed by sd I do not know if for some risk or is not compatible
 
Tôi chắc chắn mọi thứ đều đúng. và cũng thử mọi cổng USB vẫn không thể phát hiện hộp tv của tôi.
bây giờ tôi tải xuống SLIMBOX và sử dụng Burn_Card_Maker để tạo thẻ SD có thể khởi động và nó có thể hoạt động để cài đặt ROM mới.
Cảm ơn bạn đã giúp đỡ.

Sau khi cài đặt ROM mới, tôi vẫn không thể phát hiện nó từ PC của mình bằng cách đẩy đặt lại trên cổng A / V, Nhưng ít nhất tôi có thể cài đặt ROM mới cho thẻ SD. Nếu tôi muốn cài đặt ROM của Aidan từ thẻ SD có tài liệu nào không?

Your device has sd card slot? If not, can we using usb or sd card reader instead 🤔?
Which file did u use to write into sdcard?

Can I know the reason why u change to Aidan's v9 ROM?

my device is x96 air
I have tried to install the below ROMS and all of these ROMs after installation I can't type any words vis remote control, USB keyboard, or virtual keyboard.

[v9]+Aidan's+Rom+(X96+Air+P2)+[S905X3]+[ATV9]
[v9]+Aidan's+Rom+(X96+Air+P3)+[S905X3]+[ATV9]
[v9]+Aidan's+Rom+(X96+Air+P4)+[S905X3]+[ATV9]
[v9]+Aidan's+Rom+(X96+Max+Plus+2+4GB)+[S905X3]+[ATV9]
[v9]+ROM [S905X3] [ATV 9] (H96 Max X3)
[v9]+Aidan's+ROM+(H96+Max+X3)+[S905X3]+[ATV 9] (keyboard is ok, but wifi is not working and tv box can't be detected by USB_Burning_Tool )

now the Slimbox ROM seems OK. everything is working the only problem is can't install the Disney+ app.
I don't know which Aidan's Rom I should use. so I think I will keep using Slimbox ROM and find out how to install the Disney+ app.

The mask rom method is technically to force the detection of the tv box on the pc, when the tv box does not respond to the reset button or has no way to enter reboot update mode. A short nand pins ascending short circuit but it is not universal, you have to look for the method for your device. I leave you a video that I publish aidan

Change from slimbox to Aidan's v9 for being more original, without root and advanced options that could move non-experienced people, however the only thing that made of less is samba what I used to transfer files, when installing the rom of aidan did not work the ok button in any way but solve it by unpacking the rom and replacing vendor.img of the universal rom what if it worked, in my case the universal rom of aidan worked except the reset button and coreelec only detected 1 usb
 
I am not sure can your device boot from sd card reader?
My device is x96 air, originally it can boot from SD card or USB.
I use Slimbox 15.2 ATV ROM to make a bootable SD card.
Boot option is selectable in setting? And your device has sd card slot?
Gsearch for "nand chip mask rom mode". ;)
Thank u

Would any of these ROM's work on a box with S905X2-B SOC?


The box I have in mind is an OEM from my ISP. It has the same spec as a Mecool KM2, but it isn't a KM2 or a Strong Leap S1, and has widevine L1, and is also Netfix and google etc certified.

I don't mind losing those certifications

Greetings Aidan,

thank you very much for providing a great ROM.
I'm using the V7.5 (S905X) version on "Beelink Mini MXIII-II" (2GB RAM / 16GB eMMC).
Everything works fine, except the wifi driver.
LAN is not an option in this case, it has to work over WiFi.

Issue:
------
Box connects over WiFi and obtains IP, but after a while it refreshes and drops it again.
Basically repeats this in a loop, which results in loss of packets and connect/disconnect behaviour.

Request:
--------
Could you please provide a patch or inject the correct wifi-driver into the 7.5 image?
I can provide the original dtb.img from the latest official Beelink firmware (P212), if its helpful.
CoreELEC 9.2.5 works fine, so i'm 99% certain it is a driver issue.
Also, i'm willing to donate some money for your effort via PayPal.

Best regards,
Eschmelax

hello my brothers

I installed the ROM, I have a Ki Pro device, but how do I open the satellite? I can't find the dtv app

 
So it is the first time you flash with windows 11 or is it the second and you want to load the rom packed with root? If it's the first time maybe you should try another windows

If you are trying to root your device by the unpack and replace recovery method the way to know if it worked is that it will disappear, wanting to enter recovery mode will try to enter but will restart normally already with root, but unfortunately some aidan roms do not manage to root, it has happened to me a few times and I have had to try with others
first time mate, but i tried many time, only win7 can make it work, in my case!

Anyone using USB_Burning_Tool in Windows 11 correctly? My device Amlogic T972 cant detected in win 11, maybe must do in win10?
Formatted and reinstalled Aidan's Rom V8, on Windows 11 using the tool for my X96 Max Plus! So, can confirm it's working with no issues! Just uninstall and reinstall version 2.2.0 of the tool! Maybe Windows 11 is having problems detecting the drivers! After reinstalling, It detects devices normally!

    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....
