  • [ROM] Mecool M8S Pro L TVStock Nexus ROM (Android TV 7.1)

    In the spirit of the Pure Nexus Project, these TVStock Nexus ROMs deliver the pure Android TV experience using the Open GApps TVStock Package. 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, just as I've done with the Stock and Nano variants.

    TVStock variant includes:Changelog (20180310):
    • Updated to latest M8S Pro L OEM firmware (20180205.111652.V0928)
    • Wake from sleep is now taking the expected 2-3 seconds.
    • New build of Mali driver that supports OpenGL 3.2 + AEP
    • Latest build from Open GApps (20180310)
    Changelog (20180109):
    • Updated to latest M8S Pro L OEM firmware (20171216.102705.V0928)
    • Underlying OEM firmware fixed wake from sleep...but it's taking about 28 seconds. It should only take 2-3 seconds.
    • Updated to TWRP Recovery 3.2.1-0 based on latest OEM kernel.
    • Latest build from Open GApps (20180109)
    Changelog (20171202):
    • Updated to latest M8S Pro L OEM firmware (20171127.165619.V0928)
    • Added local update and backup option from Settings->About->System update based on Amlogic stock OTAUpgrade app.
    • Latest build from Open GApps (20171202)
    Changelog (20171115):
    • Updated to latest M8S Pro L OEM firmware (20171109.180937.V0928)
    • Added additional option (Reboot & Sleep) to global action menu that displays when you press and hold the Power button.
    • Removed attempt to launch voice assist on Back button long press. (only valid for watches)
    • Fixed issue with external storage not showing up in some applications.
    • Rebuilt TWRP with new V0928 kernel
    • Latest build from Open GApps (20171116)
    Changelog (20171001):
    • Mecool M8S Pro L OEM firmware (20170918.111557.V0619) stripped to Android stock bits and Open GApps
    • Rebuilt TWRP recovery with new V0619 kernel
    • Underlying OEM firmware is now pre-rooted, and so ours is too
      Additional support for HID devices (e.g. remotes, gamepads, etc.) on latest Nougat firmware for Nexus Player, NVIDIA Shield TV & Xiamoi Mi Box
    • Rebuilt TWRP with new V0619 kernel, which seems to work on this device
    • Latest build from Open GApps (20170930)
    • Nexus splash logo with stock Android boot animation
    Known Bugs:
    • Google Cast service works from Chrome browser, but apparently requires Google license to work from Android apps.
    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.

          Hmmmm....that's odd. I'll see if I can reproduce it on my end, once I've got the hardware.

        Actually, it does happen all the time, its when i long press the back button the popup comes up.
        doesnt matter where, inside an app or desktop if i long press the back button it comes up.

                Yes, it you long-press the back button it tries to bring up voice assist...unsuccessfully. Since I'm unable to troubleshoot the Google app, I'm just going to disable the long-press action for that button in the next release. It hardly seems worth a new release for this fix, though.

              Ok, sounds good. If and when gearbest decides to deliver my box (bought it over a month ago) I'll be installing this right away, like I did with the Pro+
