I have a MXQ Amlogic S805 and want to flash EmbER and install Kodi. When I hold down the reset switch and power up I never get recovery. tried holding it down for 5, 10, 30 seconds etc. It always boots to Mbox
I dont think there is any recovery install on it so I'm trying to install TWRP the recovery.img is in root but its not booting anything.

I've tried this but burntool doesn't detect the device (also tried connecting using the reset switch) (my device doesn't have a micro usb just 4 normal)

can I get help on getting recovery please?

Maybe you had the same issue like me. If you have the microSD right from the beginning inside it doesn't work. If so remove the card, try once more and if it will work then you can put the microSD in and flash I took me almost 30min to discover it.

good luck

That solved my problem too. Removing the microsd did the trick. After booting into recovery simply push it back in and flash away!

Thank you so much!

I tried to trace the track of a button. In my opinion, there is no resistance. See photo. Maybe someone has the reference schematic of S905 board. Where should the button be connected?

It's not your normal Android recovery. Its activates a recovery mode( when used with a computer) for easy flashing.
