    P212 1GB Android TV ROM (stripped for speed) - S905X MXQ Pro, T95X, Others

    I had built this a few months ago and had forgotten about it, uploading it to share now.

    This is a Marshmallow based Android TV ROM for P212 variants with 1GB RAM. SInce most if not all of the S905X ATV Roms here are for 2GB+ variants, don't flash or work on 1GB, and the odd ones that are working with 1GB variants are painfully slow.

    This rom is stripped to the basics for speed. Android TV does not run well on 1GB, it also does not run well with 1GB and laden down with junk as well as the load of Google bits - contacts/calendar storage, backup, Play Services, Search (velvet/katniss) Play Store etc etc. All Google services (except Play Services for a specific reason) and service hooks have been stripped out along with unnecessary junk. No having to deal with the slow Play Store or Play Store downloads breaking over time as either Store or Play Services get updated.

    If you want a fast non-hassle Android TV experience on your 1GB S905X P212 box, this is your ROM - use Aptoide TV and/or sideloading ATV apps to load what you need. If you cant stand to be without the Play store and love Gmail and calculators and a lot of other stuff on your TV box that has nothing to do with watching TV, this is not your ROM.

    For those familiar with the stripped ATV rom I made for 1GB RK3229 boxes, this is similar.

    NOTE NOTE NOTE - IMPORTANT DO THIS FIRST AFTER FLASHING - Due to how I stripped this ROM of fat, you will initially get Play Services errors, go to Settings, Apps, and disable Google Play Services. Play Services is there in case of those apps that check for its presence. It does not need to be enabled but it does need to be there. Disable it so you dont get constant error messages and also to help save memory and speed up your user experience.

    I used this ROM on two different version P212-based S905X MXQ Pro boxes, as well as Sunvell T95X's, all with 1GB. Probably will work on other P212 1GB devices but no promises.

    Video acceleration works
    HDMI CEC support
    Pre-rooted, if I remember correctly
    YouTube ATV 1.3.x installed for speed vs slow/buggy 2.x

    ROM is an IMG, flash with Amlogic Burning Tool or Android Tool.

    Anyone want to improve this ROM and/or use the same stripping rationale to make a good Nougat 7.1 version Android TV ROM for 1GB P212 devices, feel free.

    Hey PaulieP,

    Thanks for sharing, will definitely give it a try on my Tanix3mini, as same P212. Any experience if it will work?

      Tried your rom and I have to say that it works great. I was wondering if the video resolution outputs real 4k or if its upscaled from 720p or 1080p?

        Brightness level is too low in your rom but extremely fast. How to increase brightness level in your rom?

            Hi @PaulieP and other users of this rom.

            Just flashed this on my x96 (s905x) thank you for bringing Android TV experience. Are you still working on this rom ? THanks again good job

            edit: Responsive rom, will report back my finding... with diffrent hardware, video codec's etc.

            Could not get 4K x265 HEVC working, allthough sound plays the image stays black using KODI 17.6, will test 4K x 264 later. Also voice Search did work one time but couldnt get it working since .... Fast and stable rom ... only the 4K playback is missing. Great Job

              Getting set up on a T95X that was painfully slow, just one question. Whats this appinstaller that doesn't have the menu option? I really miss the batch install feature
