    Wow thanks. Does it mean GoogleCast now works as intended (like on Nexus Player for example) or will be spotty as I've come to expect it?

      It will never work as a Nexus player of a MIbox.. dont have the proper google signatures etc..
      But on Youtube should work just fine!

                      Yes... but this rom will wipe out all your settings and apps... it will make like a factory reset.

                    superceleron you will also make a normal android 7.1.2 rom version? (not ATV)

                    i always use the non TV Version, the normal one as the SCV7a on Alfawise H96 pro+

                    I installed your ATV version, it is very nice, but i prefer always the normal Android version with my Nova Launcher Prime setups.
                    So i returned.

                    I hope so much, that you make a second version for normal rom as you did for the Alfawise boxes also.

                    And sure this new rom would also improve a lot the issues as you did for the ATV version, for example this is important fo rme:
                    • Lot smother... and faster, not a lag fest like the stock one!
                    • Added TWRP
                    • It should have a better cpu usage/ram.
                    • Cpu temp should also be better.
                    btw: when i installed your rom with my TWRP which was installed already I also added Magisk 14.0 at the same time, but this was bad. The TWRP flashed your rom but freezed when flashing the Magisk.
                    I let it for a long time, but did not finish the flashing, so i disconnect. And then i bricked it, got loop, started with your logo and then went to TWRP with many errors, then started again and so on loop

                    I had to open the box and short the pins, was the first time that i did this with any box, but it worked.

                    i did it with the helpful informations of P.X in this posting http://freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-...154#post679154 (thanks P.X)

                    so i could recover my box, installed first the original rom with sdcard, then i installed your rom, rebooted to system then i flashed the Magisk and it worked.

                    but i returned to my other rom, because i don´t like the ATV version, hope you make one more normal...thanks a lot

                        Yes, I also would prefer to use a non TV normal version as you did for the Alfawise H96 pro +
