I don't use OFW but back wallpaper is come from /system/framework-res.apk/res/drawable-sw720dp-nodpi-v13/default_wallpaper.png
Can you try to over set on build.prop
ro.config.wallpaper=/system/etc/default_wallpaper.png
and push from adb your favorite wallpaper on /system/etc/default_wallpaper.png
Code: [Select]
adb connect <ip_player>
adb root
adb connect <ip_player>
adb remount
adb pull /system/build.prop
add with notepad++ on end of build.prop ro.config.wallpaper=/system/etc/default_wallpaper.png
Code: [Select]
adb connect <ip_player>
adb root
adb connect <ip_player>
adb remount
adb push build.prop /system/build.prop
adb push default_wallpaper.png /system/etc/default_wallpaper.png
adb shell chmod 644 /system/build.prop
adb shell chmod 644 /system/etc/default_wallpaper.png
adb reboot
If like this not solve then try edit on framework-res.apk, resign with platform key and push back via adb.
Don't forget to make backup, backup, backup because touch build.prop/framework-res.apk can end on loop, then OFW need to reinstall with paper clip.
Enjoy moding of OFW.

So I have now finally done it and confirm, that this method is working. Once the "pull" part is done, one should only do to change the wallpaper is make batch file for the "push" part and place and rename any custom wallpaper he wants in that folder where bat file is launched from.

You know that you can customize each button in Kodi with the Keymap editor addon, right?

Well thanks, but it takes a lot of consideration to do such a in-depth modification. Can only the first method also cause system errors?

BTW, back to the previous: After this modification (quoted under) the first video playback ended in freeze of HiMedia player, than I have to reboot and the second time it played normally. I didn't tested much exhaustingly, it was only one video, and hope this is not some kind of result of either the launcher, nor the power menu mod i have just installed.

 
Thanks!
So it must be:

Code: [Select]
adb connect <ip_player>
adb root
adb connect <ip_player>
adb remount
adb push OvLauncher.apk /system/app/OvLauncher/OvLauncher.apk
adb reboot


And do I need to save/backup the original launcher first from the Box via adb, in case it doesn't work well? Or how  can I revert to the original 2.1.7 launcher if I want to?

Code: [Select]
adb connect <ip_player>
adb root
adb connect <ip_player>
adb remount
adb pull /system/app/OvLauncher/OvLauncher.apk
adb reboot

Can the code above work for this? Or any other steps?

Edit: I have managed to do the swap, now the launcher can be changed.

Another issue with 2.1.7 (I just don't wanted to open a new thread) is that the wallpaper constantly resets to blank black sometimes by itself. It was somewhat the same even with OFW 2.1.1, but I guess with 2.1.7 it happens more often, mostly after reboot. Is there anything I can do to stop this happening? A patch maybe, or a third party app?

TY!

Hello!

So I have installed this ATV launcher and everything works till the next reboot, than the launcher is set back to HiMedia's default. How can I make the custom launcher permanent?

There was no trouble with this in OFW 2.1.1, so is there some magic trick I must do on 2.1.7?

Thank you!

Thanks, so I still need to install the update.zip of the power menu mod first to get this Minix app version working?

And is the "Sleep" option working with these HiMedia Boxes? I thought they don't have any Sleep mode.

Hello Mount81,
As I remember difference are icons use for power and restart button.
Yes, can use with OFW.

Hello, thanks, I would ask, but I guess you don't have any screenshots from the Minix version? In this case can you tell me from what Minix Box is this app (or just the icons?) from, so I can google it out?

And how can I "install" the Minix version, as it is only an apk? Or do I need to do the update.zip update of this one, and only after that can I install and use the Minix version app?

Is this Power menu mod still applicable for OFW 2.1.7? Just, it makes me confused that I see a different Power menu app named PowerMenu-com.minix.power_selector-1.0-1(themed) in pcristis Mediaifire uploads.

So which one should i use for OFW 2.1.7?

Despite the abandonment presented in the Thread, i will try with another question:

This FW + the software patch comes with a surprisingly working official Android TV YouTube app installed, but it's now a bit outdated version. I'm asking if anyone tried to install this newest version and found still working on the Box? I don't want to replace and thus loose the surely working version with over installing this newer, if it doesn't work well on the Box.

Yes, you can install it but the ads in the official version drive me crazy. The app I use currently is SmartTubeNext
https://github.com/yuliskov/SmartTubeNext

So you have this latest version installed and it still works on the Box? I was suspecting that the version that comes with the OFW software package is may be modified to run well on these Boxes. (I also have Smart YT TV Next installed, but somehow I found this original YT ATV app a bit smoother to handle. It's hard to describe, but it just feels a bit faster and more "real".)

So these issues on OFW 2.1.7 may present for others as well... Needs further investigation. This PQ issue you had is called "banding" BTW.
I will do the S&M banding video test today, but I'm only able to do on 1080p, as I don't have an UHD TV yet.

I guess the CFW uses different version of the HiMedia Video Player (maybe the 1.2.53 version as the OFW has the 1.2.57 version for sure). Maybe pcristi can reassure these...

Edit:
So I have tested with OFW 2.1.7 and with this S&M test video (seen on the bottom part of the page) there are no Banding issues with 1080p /YCbCr 444/ 10bit on 23.976Hz. But according to the test description (if we take it seriously), it fails on the Clipping and Scaring tests (the little square boxes inside all the color rectangles are not visible). Tho' I don't know how much this affects the overall video playback PQ in practice... I have also tried it on all colorspace/bitdepth combination available in the Advanced menu, but none were better concerning the Clipping and Scaring test. Wonder how could the CFW perform regarding. ???

I solved by resetting the box and installing the CFW 2.1.7.
Auto frame rate = ON



Image without artifacts


What FW were you on previously with this PQ anomaly? OFW 2.1.7 maybe? Have you made any modification on it, like installing some of pcristi's patches, or changed the HiMedia Videoplayer version?

I have also OFW 2.1.7 now installed, and getting curious if this PQ issue may be present in this FW in general...  ???

Hello!

Can anyone confirm/unconfirm that the Miracast option is working with this FW?
This is the unpacked app folder of the upadte.zip file of this FW:


As you can see, there's also a Miracast app listed. But it's still a mystery if it really installs by default with the FW and works as well. (If not so maybe someone can try to install it manually from the system apps menu from the Android Settings somewhere.)

What is the frame rate of the 4K video you played? Even if the GUI is set to fix 30Hz, you still need to have switched ON the Auto frame rate setting.
