    [ROM] Mecool M8S PRO W Stock & Nano Nexus ROM (Android 7.1)

    • You can enable the nav bar in Settings->Display->Statusbar, but may need to toggle back and forth before it will show.
    Download:Notes:
    • The underlying OEM firmware for this build is pre-rooted, so this is too.
    • The updater is signed, and so can be installed in the Update app, the stock recovery, or TWRP. It's designed for incremental updates, since user data is preserved. If you're installing for the first time, you should include a data wipe.
    • The safest bet is always to install the full Amlogic burn package with USB Burning Tool. With no reset switch, you can trigger USB detection by typing "reboot update" in a terminal window.
    • The local terminal app shows after being enabled in Settings->Developer Options. (This must be revealed by clicking Settings->About->Build 7 times.)
    • Flash ROMs at your own risk and always remember to back up your data first. The burn package includes a factory reset.

    Can you add an additional power-on code to the bootloader ? I have an X96 mini and your Nano variant.

    custom_code = 0xfe01
    0x40 116 #Power

      Nope, bootloader modifications like that can't really be done without source.

      Sorry, this was built for the M8S Pro W. You're free to make modifications on your own for other devices, though. I don't have an X96 Mini.

    No problems )
    File for resuscitation of the remote control from X96 mini on firmware from Mecool
    Power button only works on shutdown
    Kodi button launches Google Chrome
    Press the Setup - page -
    Press the APP - page +
    The other buttons fully correspond to their purpose

    but it's best to use the Air Mouse T2 on this software

      Thank you for your work. I copy remote.conf to /system/etc/remote.conf, works well but can't power on.

        everything is correct, the power-on function is written in the kernel, I'm powerless)

          Actually, it's hardcoded in the bootloader, but that's just as inaccessible without source.

        Hello,

        Is this an ATV rom? I installed the stock and seems normal. Will there be a ATV?

              Thanks for all your great work. I have an M8S Pro W but with Android TV and voice control. I prefer the standard Android UI and wondering if it is possible to install this version on my Android TV box.

                Hello, does this recovery support 4K display?
                I extracted the recovery img from the rom's zip and flashed it to my box using the dd method from a root shell and the screen goes blank when connected to a 4K TV.
                I was tring to flash the recovery first and make a backup of my ROM because it seems my box has a newer? ROM than whats available here:
                Amlogic/p21x/p21x: 7.1.2/NHG47L/20180312.181951.V0213:userdebug/
                Any idea how to backup the rom first?
                Would it make any sense to do a raw partition image backup from the root shell? I dont have a clue how to restore that maybe from the recovery shell?
