Found the best app to Check Device Info

Everybody knows AIDA64 or CPUz are good Apps to check device info, but both are flawed in reading the device info correctly. So found a better app to get more detailed info from your hardware, called "Device Info HW" can be downloaded from regular Play Store or Apkmirror.com and sideload to tv box. Only negative thing is it is phone based so need an air-mouse to navigate like touch device. Works really good in rooted device, after first opening go to settings inside app and turn on the setting "Use Root."

Have tested it on my phone and my H96, very detailed info.
For example:
1) This app shows the correct CPU as S912 in H96, when I am spoofing my device to show Xiaomi MiBox and because of the spoofing AIDA64 only shows S905X like the MiBox has.
2) Get detailed info like what Ethernet controller and what Nand Flash is installed, in my H96 has a RTL8211F_Gigabit_Ethernet and Toshiba 032G74 Flash.
3) Now the most important thing I found in this app is that it shows me what my ram MHz is. In phone it shows that info in Memory section, but for H96 tv box it shows that info in General in Cmdline as androidboot.ddrclk=792MHz. Now if you have been following this forum you know that one of the major compatibility issues is ram MHz speed for the compatibility of the firmware to work in your box. So this is great app if it will also work in stock firmware of Amlogic tv boxes to read MHz value, tested in Allwinner H6 box and no MHz was shown, I haven't tested another Amlogic box yet.

Use the latest available. I believe it was version 4.20 that I got from apkmirror.com
