[ROM] Beelink GT1-Mini ALVATECH Standard Android (9.0 Pie) S905X2

Please read the entire first post before asking questions. Thank you.


(There has been some hardware variants so please read carefully.)
Best thing to do before flashing your box is to check which Serial Number you currently have on the bottom of your box.
I've made 2 different ROM's for these boxes one with starting SN: 95X2 and another one for SN:B905
(confirmed to also work with SN:B95X use SN:B905 ROM ) Please download the correct ROM for your box down below.

Changes/Mods & Tweaks Alvatech ROM:
  • This ROM is based off of Beelink's Firmware.
  • Made 2 different ROM's for the different serial numbers.
  • Removed unneeded apps that Beelink had installed.
  • Removed and cleaned up files and scripts that are no longer needed.
  • Nicer mouse cursor for easy viewing.
  • Top status bar is working.
  • Double click home button brings up Recent Apps in Grid View.
  • Long Press on home button brings up Google Assistant.
  • Long Press on microphone button on remote and hold while talking into mic for Google Assistant.
  • Two Launchers: Square Home 3 , Android One Launcher.
  • Added TV Settings in app drawer.
  • Added Extra options in TV Settings.
  • Additional Apps: X-Plore File Manager, Smart YouTube TV, Netflix, Kodi, & Power Menu
  • Added additional *kl files to support more devices.
  • Added 4K support for different YouTube versions.
  • Updated Generic.kl to use the "Enter" Key.
  • Fixed a permission grant issue.
  • Added Google Clock (can be used as a screen saver too).
  • Added Backdrop from Android TV for screen saver. You can change when to initiate it in TV Settings.
  • Updated Google Apps (Gapps)
  • TWRP Recovery 3.3.1-0
  • Added Multi Webview options under Developer options / WebView Implementation.
  • Setup Wizard so users can choose language and other options during first time initialization.
  • Added Android TV remote control.
  • Fixed some framework issues.
  • HDMI CEC Language turned off by default.
  • Alvatech Boot Logo and Boot Animation
  • New Wallpaper
  • Other system tweaks and changes, I'll update more info as I remember.

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:

@ FreakTab's forum

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

Very Important! If you use this ROM on a GTMini-A box, when flashing 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.

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.

Hello ALVATECH.
Great work !!
I've installed your rom but the network with the cable doesn't always work. A lot of drops. I can't use the WIFI.
Any ideas how to solve this please ? Is it a android 9.0 problem ? Is it the same with your 8.1 rom ?

Everything work very well. I'm on the freatab forum but i can't post comment there...

Hello ALVATECH.
Great work !!
I've installed your rom but the network with the cable doesn't always  ...

I've been using this box with my ROM for some days now. I also tried one full day with ethernet port and haven't had any issues with wifi or lan connection. There could be something wrong with your router or your box. Not much I can help with.
Thank you,

Alvatech

Dear Alvatech,
Did you tested WiFi download speed at 2.4GHz and the signal strength?
There are numerous consumer reports on the poor download speed in spite of the great signal strength indication with various WiFi analyzers.
I think there's some software bug in the stock soft. Did you fix that issue in your software version?

https://forum.freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-support/amlogic-based-tv-players/ ...

Hello,
Here is a few things down below that I would try:

1.) try another USB port
2.) uninstall and re-install USB Burning Tool.
3.) try another computer
4.) final would be use the SD-Card method.

This should help you out please try these options.
Thank you,

Alvatech

Hi @ALVATECH,  
I have loaded this firmware into my X96 MAX box with 905X2.  Everything is working well for me except Bluetooth.   The Bluetooth keeps on showing the error  "Bluetooth keeps stopping"

I have tried by flashing the box multiple time but the result is the same,  I am using SN: 95X2 ROM. Can you please help me fixing this, please.
