  • [ROM] Mecool M8S PRO+ Stock & Nano Nexus ROMs (Android 7.1)

    WARNING: There's a bad batch of M8S Pro+ boxes which are experiencing regular freezing and crashes. We've narrowed the source of the problem down to a Samsung eMMC 5.1 chipset (KLMAG1JENB - B041), batches SEC 652 to 713, and these usually shipped from the factory with version 20170829.121614.V0321 of the OEM firmware. If you have one of these, it's highly recommended that you not flash any ROM (custom or OEM), as the prolonged block writes seem to result in serious data corruption.

    In the spirit of the Pure Nexus Project, these Nano and Stock Nexus ROMs prove that less can be more. The goal is to keep true to Google's vision and use the bare minimum of OEM or third-party apps or add-ons, which can be added à la carte by the user as needed. These ROMs also serve as a foundation for TVStock Nexus ROMs, which deliver the pure Android TV experience using the Open GApps TVStock Package.

    Stock Nexus variant includes:Nano Nexus variant includes:
    • Open GApps Nano Package
    • Google Now Launcher (replaces Lighthome Launcher)
    • Google Chrome Browser (replaces AOSP Browser)
    • Google Legacy Camera (replaces AOSP Camera)
    • Google Desk Clock (replaces AOSP Desk Clock)
    • Google WebView (replaces AOSP WebView)
    • Terminal app from LineageOS
    • TWRP Recovery 3.1.1-0 by TeamWin
    Changelog (20171006):
    • Updated to latest M8S Pro+ OEM firmware (20170919.150557.V0619)
    • Underlying OEM firmware updated to Android TV 7.1.2r11 (NHG47L)
    • Added support for all HID devices (e.g. remotes, gamepads, etc.) on latest Nougat firmware for Nexus Player, NVIDIA Shield TV & Xiamoi Mi Box
    • The Terminal app now shows only when enabled in Developer Options
    • Restored default settings (e.g. animation scale, sound effects) from Nexus Player
    • Latest build from Open GApps (20171006)
    Changelog (20170825):
    • Updated to latest M8S Pro+ OEM firmware (20170815.182813.V0321)
    • Underlying OEM firmware is now pre-rooted, and so ours is too
    • Replaced Jack Palevich's Terminal Emulator with Terminal app from LineageOS, tweaking manifest so that it always shows in launcher
    • Included additional keyboard layouts and kernel modules for USB gamepads
    • Included full Amlogic burn packages as well as OTA updates
    • Latest build from Open GApps (20170825)
    Changelog (20170727):
    • Mecool M8S Pro+ V0321 OEM build stripped to Android stock bits and the latest Open GApps
    • Nexus splash logo with stock Android boot animation
    Known Bugs:
    • Recovery from sleep/standby results in a full boot. This seems to be a bug in the underlying OEM firmware.
    Download:Notes:
    • This 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.
    • Flash ROMs at your own risk and always remember to back up your data first. The burn package includes a factory reset

            No, but I'm working on a release that will. For now, you can install my Android TV 6.0 release for Mini MX3 II or there are actually some instructions here on how to roll your own for Nougat.

                  Basic questions just to confirm:
                  You simply download the OTA package and apply using the OEM 'Update' app?
                  And after install can revert to original ROM with Factory Reset (presumably hold reset button and apply power)

                    No, a factory reset will wipe user data, but not the custom ROM you've flashed. To revert to the original OEM ROM, you'd have to install that in TWRP recovery (which you do enter by holding reset button while applying power).

                            Hi,
                            I'm just using the Android 7.1.1 that came with the box
                            In Settings/Apps/System Apps there is a Youtube app ver 12.14.56
                            I can't seem to find a way to show this app on the desktop so that I can run it from there.
                            To run the app, I have to keep navigating to Settings/Apps/System Apps...a bit of a pain!!
                            Appreciate any help.
