        Hello.
        Many thanks for your hard work. I'm struggling to boot this ROM. Installed TWRP and rebooted to it. Made a factory reset and installed the zip in 1st post with TWRP and already tried in OTA UPDATE app in the stock 7.1.1 mecool m8s pro+ app.
        The results are the same. In the boot nexus appears, after that Android words for half a second then nothing more. The screen is gray and mouse pointer appears.
        What am i doing wrong? ┬* Thanks in advance

          You still have access to TWRP, right? (Press that PITA reset button as you're connecting power.) I'd go in there, do a data wipe, and reinstall the .zip file. If that doesn't work, I'd use the same process to revert to the OEM ROM: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AoqocX31ecnXgZ0AQ7C7usnQkdjh3A

          Heya Magendanz great work and thanks for your dedication to this ROM! Just curious how the live channels portion is coming along? I would love to get Live channels running against my tvheadend server.

          ** Heard of any other Stock Android TV roms I could throw on this device that have functional live channels? Thanks for everything man! ++

            Live Channels was working fine for me. In fact, I included a screen shot. (However, it wouldn't let me take a screen shot when video was playing for copyright reasons.) Remember, you have to add a Live Channels service (e.g. Pluto, Haystack, Bloomberg, etc.) before the app will show up in the launcher. (Yeah, I know it's stupid, but that's the way they designed it.)

          Feel like a nub ... totally stealed the deal. Now I just have to debug why it runs like crap then crashes after a few minutes. I do have a A95x box I was going to mess around with. Many thanks!

            Can I install this on a z69?


            Amlogic S905X Quad-core Cortex A53 + Android 6.0 OS box?

            -edit-

            Reading through seems to be a cautionary wait until more testing. Don't know how to delete. How to delete comments?

              - Vulkan: S905X use old Mali 450 which only support OpenGL ES 2.0, only S912 benefit this.
              - PIP: In media_codecs.xml tell us that S905X only support 1 video decoding stream so PIP not really work (Live channels playing in backgroud will make Youtube not playing anything).
              - Recent apps: I don't think Android TV need this feature.
              - Live channels: Now it can recognize Full HD UDP multicast stream instead downscale to SD like Android 6.0 framework.
              What Android 6.0 TV rom do you recommend? I'm new and have a Z69

                So, I've just repackaged this system build with the U2+ Nougat kernel. I've added my latest TWRP recovery for p212 (using the U2+ recovery kernel) and eliminated the MAC keys that required licenses. Note that this system build hasn't yet been customized for p212. Specifically,

                - Bluetooth is still disabled (because the M8S PRO+ doesn't have it)
                - Key maps for remote controls need to be updated in the device tree
                - Wireless drivers need to be updated
                - Widevine L1 libs need to be swapped for L3 versions

                All that will be forthcoming in a custom ROM for the p212, but this should give folks a head start if they want to live on the bleeding edge.


                What would happen if I installed on a

                Z69 TV Box - 2GB+16GB US
                Amlogic S905X Quad-core Cortex A53 + 4K + Android 6.0 OS

                box?

                    Magendanz Hi friend. I received one of the first devices. I flashed your great rom using local update. Firmware says no root access. I wonder why my satellite app say cant play due to root access. Today I check. Es file manager has root access. Reboot app working needs root access. Root checker say box has root access. How is this possible as I did not root. Your firmware say no root access. Please help to unroot this box with suggestion

                      Don't know what to tell you, friend. I didn't root the firmware, but both SuperSU and Magisk were tested successful. I can check to be sure when I get home.

                    I could install netflix from playstore, so it's not rooted.

                    Thank you, installed fine on my boxes, no problems.

                    I'm still not a fan of android TV tho. I like the status bar, I like the nav bar, and I like being able to click anywhere...

                    I know, thank you, I saw, but I believe it was said that it does not do 1080p netflix? I tried various apps and no luck on stock, so went straight to this. The different apks generate different ESN numbers. I notice this android TV ROM spoofs a nexus player on this one, as it puts it in the ESN. I think wetek are the only people who make non atv boxes that can play 1080p + netflix.

                    So, a mod of the other ROM might work, who knows.

                      I rolled back most of my device spoofing efforts, since it's a losing battle that confuses the installer scripts. The only thing I kept is the Netflix ro.nrdp.modelgroup setting for the Nexus Player.

                    #59
                    Did you do that spoofing for the non atv version?

                      Nope. Those have always stayed as consistent as possible with the OEM build.prop.

                    #60
                    The wetek play 2 doesn't even have ro.nrdp so it can't be that, also, the ESN on this box has amlogic in it. I think this will be able to do 4k, but it need something more substantial doing to it, spoofing will not achieve it. Wetek play 2 could not do 4k on lollipop but they got it working for mm.

                    I don't even have a 4k TV, do not sure why I'm bothered really. I just think that a Chinese box that can play 4k netflix that is this cheap will help the scene, as it means DRM works and these boxes aren't just used for kodi...
