Can't wait for V3

#1

Post by ricklar » Thu Apr 18, 2019 3:46 am

Post taken from atvXperience Facebook page, be sure to follow to get the latest info.

I know you all must be expecting v3 but it's not as easy as it looks.
As planned: S905W, S912, S905X will receive v3 - NOUGAT.

"Wait, what about Oreo?"
That too, but the problem is, S905X has Oreo, but it has wifi problems because Amlogic never made Oreo available for all S905X devices. So, only one device, TX5 Pro will be receiving Oreo v3. Of course, it will work in other devices but without WiFi.

S905X2 will receive v3 - OREO 8.1, it will be the first Device to receive v3.

The updates are phased so that means some chipsets will receive it first and others will receive it later... We are also expecting to support large variety of devices this time so you may see device specific builds.

This time, we have playXperience v3 based on Kodi 18.1. The UI has been updated. New bootvideo, wallpaper, icons for a fresh, stealthy dark mode look. Many modules for USB Bluetooth, WiFi and gamepads were added. Device specific bugs like WiFi and remote configurations will be taken into consideration and released as separate builds on download.atvxperience.com

"Why is it taking time?"
Well, it's hard to manage so many things at once. atvX along with my school studies and other projects that I'm currently working on, are consuming my time and very little is left for atvX but it will be there, that's for sure. Besides the new look, I'm adding as many things as possible but remember, it's amlogic and there's not much you can do for it.

So, final wrap up.
v3 NOUGAT : S905W, S912, S905X
v3 OREO : S905X, S905X2

Some people were also requesting S905 support so I have taken that into consideration as well and will try my best to make it happen but please don't keep your hopes high as I don't have any S905 device so I highly rely on others for feedback.

BUT, I'm also working on porting Oreo on S905W, S912 so that means atvX may be the first ever oreo rom on these devices. Amlogic never released Oreo SDK for S912, S905W but we're trying our best to apply hacks and mods to make Oreo work on these abandoned chipsets

"How much time will it take?"
I don't know, a week maybe? Or 2 weeks probably. But surely not another month. As for now, only I will be releasing builds and working on them with our newest member, Vadim. If anybody would like to contribute, you are more than welcome. Please message me (@NayamAmarshe) if you'd like to work on atvX.

Thanks,
Nayam Amarshe
