    Hope this won't be too much of a dumb questions, kinda new in the Box hobby.
    If I install the V1.7 ROM can I go back to the original version install (Flash with the factory firmware) Don't know if it's going to fix my issue that I have to unroot.

    My wife wants to run "Tou.tv" wich is a french application we are paying for to get series and stuff from our area... I tried many approach and no luck, I always get that I can't play secure content on the device

    I tried to manually remove the su, sudeamon... Impactor unviversal... Magisk (doesn't see that I'm rooted) I know it's a problem with the root cause on my old MxQ I had to search and unroot to get the "Tou.tv" app.

    Just to be sure, I will be able to access Kodi, install APK and stuff?

    H96 max RK3399 is what I have right now.

    Thanks
    From a noob in the business...
    The firmware only works on removable emmc and micro-sd cards since the RockPi 4 doesn't use non-removable emmc chips.
    So if you have a micro-sd card you could try it.

    You can also check the video I posted to access the App Store I made in the OP.
    All useful AndroidTV apps are added there.
    VLC works very well on my PC but I wouldn't use it on Android because the other video players supports poster art, auto frame-rate switching, HDR, HD Audio etc. properly.

    add: "Booting from sdcard is about 30 seconds. Buy a new sdcard with faster speed or check on a PC that the write speed is at least 20MB/s." - not for me:-(.

    Card:
    MicroSD Samsung 128GB EVO U3 (very speed card, write>90MB/s).

    Check X99 boot speed:
    cold start (from power on to menu): 2min 40sec
    restart (from press restart to menu): 3min 30sec

    Maybe problem in X99 SD card interface. But not problem, this Android 9 image is still amazing:-)! Chrome and others APPs i solved by installation from APKs. So is not possible write this image inside internal memory?

    p.s. ...only for info, on X99 in old Android 7 (original), VLC do not play 4K movies correctly. I now install VLC and check two 2160p movies in You new Android 9 and (almost) without problem:-)
    Kodi, Nova & Night Video Player are the best to use.
    You can check the video I posted to set Kodi's whitelist for smoother video playback.
    RockPi 4 can also boot LibreELEC for even better video playback than Android, also with 1080p Netflix playback because of the big heatsink other RK3399 devices don't have.
    VLC has all sorts of problems with audio passthrough, 4K or frame-rate switching not working, but newer versions are getting better.
    VLC was developed as a PC video player then later ported to phones, not really for AndroidTV that had different requirements.
    MXPlayer is similar, developed for phones but not really improved for AndroidTV media players.

    Most likely your device doesn't support booting from sdcards if Android or the bootloader on the emmc is too old or if the manufacturer wired the sdcard reader differently.
    It can also be that your device uses different drivers which is not available in the ROM, then it won't boot.

    ony two words:
    HOW
    THANKS!
    :-)

    My old X99 work on Android 9 without problem (display is OFF, but this is no major problem). I have two question:

    1.
    In Goole Play Store I not find many apps, e.g Chrome?

    2.
    Is possible flash this ROM directly to TV BOX (slow boot from SD card)?

    thanxks
    BJ
    Google doesn't support Chrome in AndroidTV.
    You have to sideload it or use a different browser.

    Booting from sdcard is about 30 seconds.
    Buy a new sdcard with faster speed or check on a PC that the write speed is at least 20MB/s.

    Added v1.7 Custom ROM
    Please test different gamepads and PS4 BT remotes since I added some changes to better detect them.
    PS4 BT remotes might require Android 10 for full compatibility but I hope not and that it works in this updated ROM too.

    Let me know of any interesting open-source apps that are useful for AndroidTV or free games with high ratings under 100MB then I will add it to the App Store.

    Setup screen also removed so users in China can enjoy the ROM.
    Check the App Store for other useful app store apps I added if Google Play is blocked in your country.
