Thank you for info provided, will add it to next release
Thank you for your answer!.
This is a little detail about the last features of the firmware, in the System language not exist "Spanish (Latin America)" but there are other spanish languages​​ and working properly.
Mouse cursor problem still here as well. Didn't start happening until stane1983 firmware 0604. New firmware does it as well. Only way to fix the issue is to do a system recovery. After reinstall, everything is fine for a small amount of time, then it happens again. So far, I can tell you this, it nevers happens after first install reboot. And it only happens after a reboot. It never just switches in the middle of a use session. It does it on the tv I used for recovery(hdmi), and it does it on other hdmi tv's as well. It does it in 1080p and 720p on hdmi. It is almost as if it's flipping a memory address or something. No other rhyme or reason to the bug.
grindinonyourm, I will try to figure out what I've changed for that to happen...
To everyone else owning ATV-108, why don't we move to my subforum Stane's ROMs - Android Forums and discuss issues there?
Flash player is still a no go. Although it seems to work minimized, when I enable full screen I do not have video, though audio works. If I minimize it again, usually it works, but if I do it one more time, usually it freezes my system. Any ideas ???
Provide me a link of flash video you're having problems with...
For instance, try any of the videos from this page:
The World at War (1973) – Seriale online – Documentar | Filme online gratis, subtitrate in limba rom
Hi Stane. Thanks for answering. I found a thread that change parameters in Build.prop file, on the installed device.
# ro.build.product is obsolete; use ro.product.device
# Do not try to parse ro.build.description or .fingerprint
ro.build.description=f02ref-eng 2.3.4 GB.f02ref.20111110 eng.xlknb.20111110.120443 test-keys
# end build properties
# system.prop for M1 reference board
# This overrides settings in the products/generic/system.prop file
You know the f02red board?
Thanks for you time.
Afaik, f02ref is tablet reference board. I do have 2.3.4 sources for that.
I installed build from 2012.06.12, first problem: no google market?
Second problem: /NetShares is missing.
Did I mess something up?
I tried to install the latest firmware (12.06.) on my atv-101, but I get an error that something is wrong with the signature. The exact error message is:
E:signature verification failed
Can you help?
Hi Stane! I find a thread on DialExtreme from other device, that changes board parameter to upgrade it.Firmware upgrade? [Update: Download Link here]
That firmware on DX thread changes the original 'm1ref' to 'c03ref'. Perhaps you can understand what is the differences in the update.zip. What the script changes on original m1ref device.
I think that your effort and develop will be appreciate from the whole
Measy X7 users community.
Thanks a lot for your time.
Use tool DeviceChecker from faq and provide me informtion that you have... I don't have any ATV-101, so I don't really know what board is in device.
Not sure why my signature is not visible but here it is....
If you like my work, buy me a beer, summer is comming and it will be a long one...
I bought you 50 beers... thank you... keep working
Take a look to my /proc/cpuinfo

it's the same hardware that @nitromethanol.
I am using your firmware without problem, i believe that problem is not the hardware, else, in some place that does not say c03ref, the firmware should work properly on that hardware.
My media player is Android Full HD 1080P Media Player w/ USB/SD/HDMI/RJ45 Ports - Black (2 x AAA) - Worldwide Free Shipping - DX
Surely your firmware works in more places than you think.
Thanks for you time.
I am aware of that my firmware can work with other devices with or without few modifications. I just claim that I'm doing this for Visson ATV-108 c03ref and f16ref because I do have these devices and before I release it I want to be sure that anything can go wrong by installing my fw. Other devices I don't have and all you do with my firmware with other devices than ATV-108 is your responsibility, you can brick your device, you can have problems with wifi, IR remote... Hope you understand what I mean
About m1ref and c03ref, these Amlogic reference boards are very similar which makes it possible to 'rename' device to c03ref and that will work.
Also, when installing to other device than Visson's, for caution use bootloader file from your original firmware (u-boot-aml-ucl.bin).
Thanks for your firmware.
1. PlayStore does not display all applications (for example TuneIn Radio)
You need to add all permissions, except NFS (It Crash PlayStore)
2. Why do you use older versions of the codecs? New versions (2012_04_19) work fine.
3. For owners of devices with SATA disk (Measy X7), need add SATA support.
4. Android Keyboard is installed twice (from firmware and patch)
5. Formatting /userdata, it is not good idea. No way for soft upgrade.
6. Can You do so CPU clock was exhibited from build.prop?
Sorry for my English.
1. Will add permissions
2. You're sure about codecs? What about AC3 and DTS?
3. Will include kernel support, but I'm not going to change vold.fstab 'cause this fw is targeting ATV-108 devices without sata.
4. Will remove it from patch
5. Formatting userdata and cache is 'must have' when moving from older fw or from original fw because of different partition sizes. I will see what my options are.
6. I'm not sure what do you mean by that, allow overclocking?
- Video scaling almost done (still testing, but it's working actually.... system wide, not just MoviePlayer app - will be included in next release)
- Camera app works now, need to be tested with actual hardware
- Still looking for stable Flash
- I still don't have any feedback if there is any improvements with Netflix with last firmware....
Bug report by me: DTS sound doesn't work on f16ref board...
Pls. don't forget to compile the additional modules. Maybe you could try compiling most/all of them so that anyone can pick whatever he needs
Yep, the flash is problematic indeed. Let me try describing my observations about this issue (maybe it gives you some ideas about where to look .
It behaves much like there is some sort of memory leak, because after attempting to play some flash video, the system becomes very unstable. I could see the free memory going down (as low as 20 MB), then the android system starts killing lots of applications in an attempt to free more memory. After this, even without doing anything, memory goes down again, system starts killing applications and so on -- this repeats up to the point that the system freezes.
So, I believe netflix cannot work either. It seems to me that it's something fundamentally wrong. I mean not the flash plugin, but something deeper maybe in the kernel/codecs, etc. One thing I noticed looking at dmesg output. On 2.3.4 I used to see messages from the mali modules - like new context initialized whenever p[laying a flash video. Now, I do not see any log from the mali module. Though, I suppose that's fine.
Cheers and keep up the good work !
how about A/V out and standby fixing for f16ref board on next update?
@stane: About the flash issue, one more idea.
I'm gonna try installing a non-Hw accelerated flash plugin (flash 11 from market) and see what happens. If the system behaves normally and is stable, albeit hw-acceleration, this would suggest something deeper as I suggested in my previous post. Would this help ?
