    HPH NT-N8 RK3229 Custom Nougat ROM v1.2a

    Changelog v1.3 06-06-2018

    - Add support for VC1 video playback in Kodi 18
    - Add high bitrate FLAC Audio Playback support
    - Spoof ethernet as wifi.
    (Games like Asphalt 8 can now be run over ethernet, it's a bit slow to test, probably because of a 1.6GB download)
    If someone knows of other apps that that don't run over ethernet, please list so they can be tested.
    - Hide HDMI
    I don't have any accounts for Skygo or others to test.
    Please list any free apps to test, if it's still not working, I'll try something else.

    Instructions for flashing new firmware

    Before Installation
    - Make sure USB Power saving mode is disabled for the USB Port you use to flash the device on your PC.
    (not needed but better to disable it to prevent problems)
    - Use a PC Back USB Port and not ones from the front or a laptop that have less power.
    - Pause Antivirus software for 10 minutes to not interfere with the flashing or cause high disk usage.
    - Make sure device was connected to PC before in flash mode and drivers were installed To Install the drivers
    1. If flashing for the first time, you need to install the drivers with DriverInstall.exe
    2. If you recently upgraded your operating system to Windows 8.1 or higher, it's also a good idea to install the latest drivers.
    3. Let your PC recognize the device and automatically install the drivers
    - Hold a paperclip into the reset hole of the device, keep holding then
    - Connect the device with the OTG USB Port and USB-USB male cable to some back USB port on your PC.
    - Now connect the power cable to the tv box(must be powered, live) You will hear a 'click sound' that Windows has now recognized the USB device.
    - It will ask to install the drivers or install it automatically.

    Flashing the ROM
    1. Open AndroidTool v2.42 and connect the tv box to your PC.
    - Hold a paperclip into the reset hole of the device, keep holding then
    - Connect the device with the OTG USB Port and USB-USB male cable to some back USB port on your PC.
    - Now connect the cable from the power adapter to the tv box(must be powered from wall socket, live) You will hear a 'click sound' that Windows has now recognized the tv box. AndroidTool will also shoe 'RKloader found' message to say device is ready to be flashed.
    2. Select 'Upgrade Firmware' in AndroidTool v2.42(Second tab)
    3. Click on the 'Firmware' button to load the firmware(update.img that you extracted from the 7zip compressed file)
    4. Click 'Upgrade' to flash the new firmware.
    5. Wait about 7 minutes after flashing and before unplugging device for firmware to settle.
    6. Disconnect from your PC and connect to TV.
    Enjoy

    Important


    To enable auto frame-rate switching, change to 'on start/stop' under Video Settings and under Display set the delay to 2.0 seconds, Expert Settings need to be enabled.
    Use RKMC instead if you play 4K@50/60hz or VC-1 files, otherwise Kodi 18 works better.

    Don't use Kodi 17 from the Play Store as it is several months outdated, buggy and don't have the fix for 4K GUI menus showing properly or mouse pointer working in 4K resolution.

        Did you try on a HPH NT-N8 and it booted successfully?
        Remember to use AndroidTool v2.42 and wait 5 minutes after flashing before removing the power cable.
        I don't have a Bqeel RK3229 to test but think it uses very different hardware.
        I only have a Bqeel RK3328.

        It would be excellent if you implemented into your firmware driver for wifi 8703, ir remote, bt from Tanix TX2 R2 Is it possible to do this?
        For example, you can draw from this firmware (there is everything except ir remote): https://mega.nz/#!w2BXFbhQ!lpW2_C9W1...2M0FCzzNWf0o8I
        Thanks

                  L1 DRM requires $10000 for a HDCP yearly license then
                  you need to pass all Google CTS tests and Google need to certify your device.
                  Then you need need to pass Widevine security tests from Google and incorporate security features and locked bootloaders before they grant you a keybox.
                  Then Widevine is locked to your device's serial number and hardware, can't work on other devices.
                  Netflix then requires you to sell over 2 million devices before they will consider discussions for Netflix HD support for your device.

                  If you want to play Amazon Prime in HD, it's possible in Kodi 18 if you live in US, UK, Germany, Austria so far.

                  The firmware has Widevine L3.

                      You can try one of these 3 firmwares and see if it has drivers for your device.

                      New firmware is not going to solve your crashing and freezing problems, it's hardware related.
                      Cheap devices shipping with the slowest RAM, EMMC storage chips to cut costs.

                        Then the device probably uses different power, EMMC, RAM drivers which I'm not able to fix.
                        There are links to 3 other Nougat firmwares you can perhaps try.

                          Thank you for the reponse mo123. Is there a way you can integrate the esp 8089 drivers to one of those firmwares you mentioned? If your busy would you mind teaching how to integrate them instead?

                            You can try unpacking the resource.img and changing the dts to default to ESP wifi perhaps.
                            Compare to your stock firmware.
                            You might also need to insmod the esp8089.ko on startup.
                            But since only Kitkat firmware is available for your device, it's very difficult as MM would have helped a lot more.
