    Notes:
    Please read the "Extra Tips Section" on the 2nd post for additional help.
    When box boots for the first time only, installation is still going on in the background please be patient for it to load completely.
    When you connect the box to the internet for the first time google dependencies will need to be updated, please allow for these updates to finish.

    Download ROM for SN:922X or SN:95X2:
    GT_King_AT_V5.0_922X

    Download ROM for SN:B922:
    GT_King_AT_V5.0_B922

    Download ROM for SN:C92X or SN:SA9X:
    GT_King_AT_V5.0_C92X

    Installation Instructions:
    Recommend Using Latest Amlogic's USB Burning Tool 2.1.7.0 or later. SD Card Method can be used.

    First open the USB Burning Tool, then in the top left corner click File / Import image and click on the downloaded ROM image file. When you finish loading the ROM press the Start button on the right hand side of the USB Burning Tool. Next plug in one end of the USB cable to your PC. USB 3.0 ports on a PC seem to work better than the USB 2.0 ports, but USB 2.0 ports work too. Next plug in the power cable to your box, and as soon as you see the eyes turn green on the box, you need to immediately plug in the other end of the USB cable into the USB 2.0 port of your box (the one next to the power jack). Do not use any other USB ports as they will not work. Be persistent until you succeed if you fail at first.

    Very Important! when you flash your box either by USB or SD-Card NEVER use the option Force Erase All only use the Normal Erase option or you will lose DRM Widevine L1.

    Click needed link down below to download tool needed.
    USB Burning Tool Method: Amlogic's USB Burning Tool
    SD Card Method: Amlogic's Burn Card Maker

    1ST BOOT TAKES ABOUT 5-6 MINUTES, SO PLEASE BE PATIENT.
    THIS DELETES ALL YOUR DATA SO DO A BACKUP IF NEEDED! USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!


    This is to share my work with everyone and to try to make these TV boxes more enjoyable.
    I will try my best to answer or help with any questions and or concerns as soon as I can.
    If something doesn't function properly please let me know with as much detail as possible and I will try to fix it.
    When posting for help please stay on subject, If it doesn't pertain to this ROM please search other threads for help or start a new thread.
    I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT AS MUCH AS I DO!!

    Thank you Beelink for the sample hardware.




    You can get the Beelink GT King >> here << and help support Freaktab. ?

    Extra Tips Section...

    Tip (1.)
    PLACEMENT HOLDER*****
    MAGISK INSTALL & HOW TO PASS SAFETYNET.



    Tip (2.)
    INSTALL SUPERSU / ROOT MANAGER
    • Download the patch here.Then put this patch somewhere you know, like an SD Card.
    • Reboot into Recovery (TWRP) by using the Power Menu App or holding in the reset button on the box while powering it up.
    • Next install the patch. If you receive an error such as: mount: failed to mount then just go back and re-run the patch one more time without restarting your box it will work successfully the 2nd time.
    • Once you've installed the patch, reboot your box and enjoy!
    Notes:
    I have tried this on this ROM only, not any other ROM's so please only ask for help if you installed this on this ROM only. I do not make or support this app.

    Tip (3.)
    OTHER TIPS COMING SOON....

          Hi is there any plans to release this for the B922 firmware? Seems like there's no unofficial roms for that firmware yet.

            I was planning on making one but I would need someone to test it since I don't have a box with this serial number. If I try to make one will you or anyone else be willing to try it?
            I will look into it and if you or anybody else is interested just PM (Private Message) me.
            Thank you,

                Okay, I have sent you a PM already for you to test. Also I no longer need any more users for testing after this, I have some users already testing it at the moment.
                Thank you,

                        Does anyone have issues regarding loosing language configuration?
                        If I turn off the GT-King, I mean removing the power adapter, then when I turn it on I loose my language configuration and it starts in Chinese (?). This also happens with the original beelink firmware. What is more strange is that all other configurations are no lost, only the language. This is very annoying specially because I can't read Chinese.
                        Doing restarts/reboots I don't loose my language configuration.
                        Any ideas?

                        Yes, actually you are right. I did experience this behavior with this ROM as well. I got used to it from the original firmware. Though I think this issue was actually fixed in the latest (July) official firmware.

                            Hello,
                            I will be releasing another ROM with the latest version available from Beelink as a base for the ROM. Also the sound issue with Netflix should get fixed too. I plan on releasing one for the newer SN: B922 and also for boxes with the other serial numbers . This ROM was based off of an older ROM at the time when this ROM was made the newer Beelink ROM wasn't available yet. I've been pretty busy lately but I will try to release something very soon hopefully.
                            Thank you,
