[ROM] SC VIM3L Pie ATV v1 20191023

Hi there guys and girls, one more rom/fw for you all!
Many thks to Khadas for sending me the device to play
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

Overvations:

  • After the VIM3L 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 5 min when playstore suggestions appears on main screen of launcher go to play store and manual update the apps since in 1º boot looks like it wont auto update the core apps that is needed to be updated.
  • Both above are only done 1 time on first boot after flash…
  • First time you put the Vim3L 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”.

  • ATV Build Path used.
  • Increased vmalloc to 512mb
  • Added AFRD app, and is working fine. ( Many thks to its creator/s )

Bugs v1:

  • Of course there is bugs… there always be bugs…

Thanks for the great work superceleron.

I’ve been using this for a bit now with only one issue. I have the vim3l hooked up with the tone board, which works fine until the system goes into sleep mode. Once it wakes back up, sound no longer comes from the tone board until the whole system is rebooted.

hmm not much i can help you since i dont have a tone board, but from what you tell me looks like something is not “waking” up!
