  • [ROM] XannyTech Custom Mod Rom + TWRP Recovey built-in - for MINIM8SII and other devices see first post.

    Hi to all, i'm an old and Retired XDA Rom developer, recently i buyed a Mini M8S II, and i found some bugs, and i hate the customization so i looked into...
    Unpacked many firmware from similar devices, and reading forum, and taking ispiration, and after many many testing and flashing i packed my custom Rom.
    This Rom it's not modded as i used to, so no custom kernel or function added, it's just a bugfixed and optimized version of the v106 released on october.
    I wasn't sure to share it, there is a reason because i retired from the ROM developing scene, but... we will se.






    It's for Mini M8S II, but should work on any P212 Motherboard based TvBox with 2Gb of Ram.

    Reported Working also on:
    - Tanix TX5 Pro with AP6255 wifi chip
    - Mini MX + S905x 1Gb
    - Sunvell T95x 2gb/8gb and generally on any MINI M8S II clone
    - X96 this is the remote.conf
    - Nexbox A5 2G/16G
    - Nexbox A95x s905x 1g 8g
    WI-FI FIX FOR NEXBOX WITH AP6330 WIFI CHIP:
    https://mega.nz/#!plVhCD7S!FNOupsbsP...DWMc3JJ5mvQ_YI
    copy AP6330 folder in /system/etc/wifi . Obviously give to it the right permissions AP6330 folder permissions 755 and give 644 to all the file inside the folder. Reboot

    Using a different device just remember to put the correct Remote.Conf in /system/etc ; in my custom rom /system/Media i gave to you a directory with some remote.conf i found around:
    Code:
    REMOTE INCLUDED:
    - Nexboxa5
    - Nexboxa95x
    - V88 Pro
    - TanixTX5Pro
    - X96
    If updating trough update.zip the script will copy your acutual remote.conf in system /etc
    I personally use a MX3 Airmouse.

    So this Rom is:
    Code:
    - Deodexed
    - Zipaligned
    - DeBloated
    - Xposed Framework prebuilt in and activated
    - Init.d support built-in
    - Kodi bloated addon removed + Kodi optimization Built-in
    - SuperSu updated to latest stable
    - Many refinement and optimizations
    - Selinux in Permissive mode
    - SquareHome2 set has system launcher, you need to customize it by yourself, but i like it badly. ;)
    App Removed from stock:
    Code:
    - OpenWNN and relative libs
    - PPPoe
    - Filebrowser
    - Browser
    - Videoplayer
    Bugfixes:
    Code:
    - USB keyboard ENTER bug corrected;
    - Brightness bug/Colorspace problem fixed;
    - R/W working;
    - Wifi: i bougth a litte 6db gain antenna with cable(1,5 $) soldered it removing the shitty antenna inside of the box.
    - Passthrough Fix  - Thanks Pharjister !
    
    Passthroughfix.apk Instructions:
    You had to go to android settings/more settings/apps privileges and turn on storage privileges then notifications and give it priority.
    Launch the app and use reboot button ad approve root privileges for it.
    From then on after rebooting wait until you hear the notification sound and check if the app has received root privileges.
    Normally it takes few seconds after the system is loaded.
    Sometimes you should reboot several times to complete the procedure.
    Preinstalled apps:
    NOTE: none of the apps included in my ROM it's pirated or modded: all free versions!
    Code:
    ADAway              You should not need to open it because hostfile is yet ready to block ADS
    Chrome 55
    Kodi 17.0 - But if you use Autorefresh Rate is better to use SPMC 16
    Netflix
    MxPlayer             In /system/Media there are the better codec from XDA Thread, just set it in preferences.
    Vlc Player
    Total Commander + 3 useful plugins
    YouTube
    Terminal Emulator
    BootManager (to be activated in Xposed installer)
    XposedInstaller 3.11
    ...I hope i didn't forgot any (i use a different list for myself...)

    If you're scared to lose OTA updates, don't worry, if a update will come out i'll upload a new upgraded mod.

    WARNING:
    I'm not responsible and nor the forum that hosts my ROM is, of any damage or malfunction caused on your device, during the flash or the use of my ROM.
    You'll take the responsibility of what you do.


    To burn my Rom you need Amlogic_USB_burning_tool_2.0.8 and a male to male USB cable, 1 male to your pc, the other on the usb port near the HDMI.
    you can follow this guide: http://androidpcreview.com/how-to-use-the-amlogic-usb-burning-tool-to-manually-update-firmware/3749/

    DOWNLOAD LINK:

    UPDATED VERSION BASED ON V109 LINKS!!
    Flash with Amlogic_USB_burning_tool_2.0.8:

    XTMOD_EX_P .IMG (it's in .7z format just for space reason)


    ZIP Version (unzip the content in a empty sd card insert and reboot in recovery with toothpick metod to install)
    It's better to use this method starting from a stock firmware because the script will automatically copy remote.conf and dtb.img from your system to the new rom (experimental)
    XTMOD_EX_P .ZIP

    Enjoy!

          About Auto refresh rate in Kodi don't know, i never tested it, and i'm not the Kodi developer in my custom i used Kodi 17 beta 6 i love it, but for particular setting honestly dunno.
          About the zip i could upload one now, but it's untested, and it's not my way to work.

                  It's not about kodi. You have to change the permissions on sys/class/display/ files to 666.
                  Now, i am doing this everytime i restart the box , maybe you can make it permanent.
                  Thanks.

                    Thanks.
                    i will check and if not is yet done, i will do it in the next version, it's easy (it's a simple mod to init.amlogic.rc )
                    Edit: i did a fast check just vinfo has a different permission 664 let me know.
                    Or you can put a little script into init.d to do it every time you reboot
                    Code:
                    #!/system/bin/sh
                    chmod 666 /sys/class/display/mode

                            I tested also on my device before uploading it's odd.
                            Have you removed the microsd (internal memory) before flashing?
                            what procedure did you follow?
                            Normally your issue comes because the recovery sytem does not recognize the fortmattng of the sdcard, but i will do again a test tomorrow, tonight i must finish a work, so i can't.
                            But if you give me more infos i can try to reproduce the problem.
