    [ROM] Ugoos AM6 ATV_by_Sasvlad ( AndroidTV 9.0 )

    [ROM] Ugoos AM6 ATV_by_Sasvlad V.0.0.8 ( AndroidTV 9.0 )

    Update: [ROM] Ugoos AM6 ATV_by_Sasvlad V.0.0.9 ( AndroidTV 9.0 )



    Dear friends, I present to your attention my new hybrid for ATV lovers.
    Many thks to UGOOS for sending me the device to play.

    Based on stock firmware Ugoos AM6_0.0.9

    Why a hybrid? Anyone familiar with my ATV in past boxes knows, that I'm trying to combine both camps of amateur / opponents of AndroidTV. This is another step towards the perfect firmware, which AOSP supporters will also like:

    1. All the benefits and convenience of the AndroidTV interface for Remote Control are present.
    2. For those who like to work with a mouse, there is a Status and a Navigation bars, imperceptible for those who love the Remote, not the mouse.
    3. You can also use the browser. An alternative TV-Market is installed in addition to the reduced ATV Market.

    To increase the speed of work, and also taking into account only 2Gb of memory, I deleted everything that can be done without.



    Changelog v.0.0.8:
    • built-in modified for Ugoos AM6 TWRP recovery 3.2.3-1.

    Changelog v.0.0.9:
    1. Fixed device reboot when playing iptv
    2. Reworked CEC settings
    3. CEC. Added tv volume control settings
    4. Added hibernation function (Device Preferences -> Screen saver -> Power key action)

    in 3 minutes after entering this Recovery box will reboot. This is triggered protection firmware from the manufacturer.


    Added the following applications:
    • Opengapps Atv (at the very minimum)
    • App Drawer
    • Explorer X-plore, for remote
    • Alternative Market AptoideTV
    • GoogleChrome v.57. Do not update it, if you want to use copy-paste

    I assume this is for the SN: 922X & SN:95X2 and not the SN:B922? I have the SN:B922 and it just got stuck in a boot loop.

      I think so.
      It's best to stay on the stock firmware for users that want ota updates.
      Flashing a custom firmware might cause problems with ota updates, otherwise if ota updates is not important then custom firmwares can be fun to use.

        It does not matter, thanks to the multi-dtb firmware is suitable for any Ugoos AM6 box.

            The only way to do any customization to AndroidTV is to use a paid app
            https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...deloadchannel2

            I still hate what Google did to AndroidTV, at least on Nougat all your app banners were at the bottom of the screen.
            Now you have 7 tiny banners at the top of the screen and with 4K tv's, the whole rest of the screen just shows a black background.
            With apps like Youtube and Netflix or other streaming apps, you can add it as Channels at the left side of the screen(if pressing left twice) and then you get random videos shown in the middle of the screen in their channel row.
            AppleTV devices have a far better UI than AndroidTV I think.
            All your app icons are on the main screen in a big size and then all your video services eg, Youtube, Netflix, Amazon Prime get combined into a separate screen where you can search for a movie or tv show and then select from which service you want to stream it from.
            Google now even started to put ads on your main AndroidTV screen, at least you can disable that channel for now.
            For people coming from a regular Android device, AndroidTV customization can feel extremely limited.

                  It seems you are using the incorrect firmware, the X2Cube instead of AM6 firmware to flash.
                  You must load the firmware and press start in the flash tool, then press the bottom recovery hole, connect the USB A-A cable and connect power then release the recovery button for it to start flashing automatically.
