[ROM] SC VIM1 Pie ATV BETA1 20190909

Hi there guys and girls, one more rom/fw for you all!
And many thks to @Robert for be my beta tester :wink:
This rom is as “TRUE” to AndroidTV as possible…
Build from Latest source.
Debug Build


  • After the VIM1 boot and it shows the language screen pls let it idle there for 1 or 2 min so background tasks finish.
  • When you finish setup and you are on launcher screen, let it also idle there for at least 10 min because playstore needs to update some system apps and that make the VIM1 slow… so go make a coffee or tea whatever lol…
  • Both above are only done 1 time on first boot after flash…
  • First time you put the Vim1 to sleep it will take long time to actually sleep… dont worry is normal it will eventually sleep, this only happens 1 time after a power cycle after that it will go to sleep fine and “fast”.

Changelog BETA1:

  • Build from latest source
  • ATV Build Path used.
  • NO ROOT (i do not root my roms… sorry… but you can have “su” in shell since is a debug build )
  • Small change in kernel.
  • Fixed force_land.
  • Reduce the time the mouse icon stays on screen.
  • Removed some “Null” pop ups
  • Some fixes to settings provider.
  • Modified DroidSettings, “More Settings” now calls white settings.
  • Modified TVSettings, added “Display” to menu to call DroidSettings
  • Removed White settings just like true ATV.
  • Double click home brings up Recent Apps in Grid View…
  • Long press home calls all apps
  • Long press Mic Key in remote calls assistant ( only tested in Beelink King Remote )
  • Added many KL’s for many keyboards.
  • Added Beelink King remote support. ( more to be added in the future )
  • Added Provision.
  • Density set to 320dpi as true ATV.
  • Added some apps. ( not many since i dont like to add to much crap in my roms )
  • Compilation done with optimizations.
  • Changed system and vendor partitions size.
  • Optimized lots of stuff.
  • Custom Gapps ATV.

  • No Vulkan support since the GPU does not support it.
  • Googlecast will not work ok, nothing i can do to fix it since it need certification.
  • Netflix for AndroidTV will not work at all, so use regular netflix already present in the rom.

Works here too. I always start with Eth, worked fine.


working after a few restarts - thanks!

appreciate for the VIM1 Pie ATV BETA1 20190909 rom.

I was wondering if anyone was able to watch a movie or an episode after login to Netflix (the Netflix app included with the rom) after launching the Neflix app only Back and Home work on the remote keypads so I am not able to to watch anything from Netflix.

the remote works fine when play YouTube, VLC, etc…

I also paired a Bluetooth remote and a WiFi with the USB dongle remote in order to make sure the issue is not from the Vim1 remote and the result was exactly the same no other keypad on the remote except the return works.

the Netflix app included only works with a mouse or air mouse - hope that helps!

Sorry for super-noob question :expressionless: how to “cleanly” root such rom. Seems like it’s a “debug build”. I have a bad experience with KingRoot, therefore looking for some better solutions.
PS. This rom is great. No problems at all so far and it even stays quite cool even on “heavy” load!

Thanks for the work but the download link does not work.

Ye i know, we are fixing it!

This is a great rom indeed - thanks so much superceleron. It runs so cool compared to others I’ve tried.

Any ideas how I can create a custom boot logo and where I need to install it?

Any documents out there which can point me in the right direction?

Flashed this yesterday via bootmaker tool (USB burning tool not detecting Vim1)
I have an old Vim1 superceeded V 1.2 board.
I only have 1080 60Hz option in display settings.
No 1080 50Hz
My TV is 1080p maximum.
Most content on my very few apps is 50 FPS so not ideal.
Anyone else missing 50Hz ??
BTW Dual boot with CoreELEC nightlies on SD Card working a treat.

No issues here, i have the 50hz.
If you dont it means your tv is not sending the correct edid information to the vim1… im in v1.2 board.


I found the issue after flashing Newest Android pie on my Vim3.
Same thing happened until i toggled in Display settings / Resolutions and activated Auto switch to best resolution.
Deactivated it and then clicked on Display mode 1080p 60Hz
Then all my TV resolutions showed up including 1080p 50 Hz
Chose 1080p 50Hz and bang it works.
Had to do this same procedure on the Vim1 with ATV to jolt the handshake between my TV and the Vim1. :wink:

BTW I know Refresh rate switching is not working.
What i pleasantly found using this Rom is that TVHeadend Client in Kodi playback is working very nicely at 50FPS playback.
There was some slight Jerkiness in HD channels but i was able to fix that by changing settings for Smooth Playback using Activate Sync Playback To Display.
