Recovery for LETV Super TV X3-50, X3-55, X3-55Pro, X3-65, X3-65Pro

The recovery is based on generic aosp recovery. Signature checking is completely disabled, so you can flash any .zip update. The responsibility of what are you flashing is entirely on you.
The main problem was - the recovery cannot get assess to the TV screen. I wrote a lot of code to make fbdev working.

Successfully tested on:
x3-65 (Super3 Max65)
x3-55Pro (Super3 x55Pro)
x3-55 (Super3 x55)
x3-50 (Super3 x50)

How to flash recovery?
- TV is off
- Put LetvUpgrade928.bin from the archive to root folder of a usb drive and insert it to the TV
- Stay in front of the TV and point the remote to the center of the TV and press: SETTINGS, VOL+, VOL-, CH-, CH+, POWER (each button should be hold during 1-2 seconds, so no rush)
- TV will boot up and you'll get a blue progress bar. After flashing the TV turns itself off.

How to enter recovery mode?
Two ways to enter the recovery:
- If you have physical buttons on the TV then just press and hold Vol+ button on the TV.
- If you do not have buttons on the TV you can use remote. Press: SETTINGS, VOL+, VOL-, CH+, CH-, POWER

Download recovery

Having a bit of an issue. Installed your custom rom. Been running it a while without issues. Decided to load your recovery. All went well with the install and I worked on setting the device up.

I hit a snag while installing apps and needed to factory reset. Used the setting factory reset. Tv rebooted, acted like it wiped, then failed. Tried to boot it up but never gets to the animated screen Le Ecosystem screen. Stops trying after a minute or so and turns off.

Any way I could get a flashible rom zip or some advise on how to get the stock recovery back on it to reflash your rom bin file @dipcore

I can get to your custom recovery without issues.

TV = X3-55 Pro

I will investigate wiping issue.
You can flash bin files without any problem, in the same way as you did it before (SETTINGS, VOL+, VOL-, CH-, CH+, POWER) I did not change that.

I'll give that a go. It wasnt liking it much when I tried it, however I can wipe the USB drive and give it another go.

Minor setback aside, stellar job on this. These have such great hardware that's stunted by aubpar software. Seems to be the deal with Letv/LeEco devices. So much potential.

It should work. My recovery does not change mboot partition (which is used when you fash bin files). I made it by intention so the regular bin files are always flashable and you can restore factory state, if you need
You may need to try couple times.
