I have 2 airtel boxes first is updates disabled usb debugging try 10 times remove power cable trick but not working won't downgraded
And another one is old version patch level 2019 and i successfully converted it to fully android box
So what I do with it
First must enable usb debugging and open yr phone hotspot but do not turn on internet otherwise yr box will be updates to latest version after that connect yr box wifi with yr phone and connect it with remote adb shell app via ip address and remove this
com.airtel.tv
com.firmware.update
com.technicolor.checkota
com.uei.uas.airtel
com.apps.updater
com.tataelxsi.icx
com.technicolor.enableUpdates
After success install atv launcher with es file explore app
And someone who actually downgraded his airtel box please reply
Finally I have done and successful downgraded my airtel Xtreme stb and enable usb debugging and remove the fuking app. Lol
So what I done with is first you have to go airtel Xtreme app permission turn on of toggle of camera open play store and install zank remote app and many kinds of file explorer atv launcher and many as you wish you did not see open button but don't worry you just need to fiil yr box storage after turn of yr internet connection 10 times remove power cable trick actually working but i modified it 15 time remove power when intlaizing and 15 time remove power cable immediately then check and surprise my boot logo change means downgraded leave it 20 minutes and when I realise all set factory reset and connect lnb cable boom downgraded
Note carefully after downgraded don't connect to internet first remove all app via adb server read my pervious post if you want to use it as a airtel Xtreme box don't remove airtel Xtreme app just disable it and use atv launcher but if you permanently want to make it android box uninstall it via server

If anybody has noticed, Airtel disabled USB debugging in build.prop, but I have been able to downgrade the box to an older version which has adb debugging by unplugging and plugging in the power cable 10 times, and 20 times if you want to downgrade to the stock version it came with when it released. But if you want the oldest version do the jugad 20 times then disable software update then open settings using GAssistant and uninstall all updates for Airtel app then disable using ADB and then tell GAssistant to open Play Store and download any launcher except*.Android TV Launcher,Android TV Home. And you have vanilla box like 100 or 200 dollar from Amazon

*Update: Android TV Home Or Launcher does not work, if you want a Stock launcher install downloader from Play Store and open. Then go to google and download LeanbackOnFire launcher. Then tell google assistant to open Play Store again and install button mapper, then remap the home button single click to the leanback launcher. Now you have a full stock launcher. Thanks

hi, as you told downgrading by unplugging 20 times will give oldest version,
1. may i know build number of this? like PTTxxxxxxx
2.also know you getting manual selection of audio format like dts.

anyone who drowngraded to stock version also tell what is the build version.

    I just got the Airtel Xstream box, the model is 'Xstream_Smart_Box_001', Android v9, Patch Level 5th Sept 19, Kernel: 4.9.159-1-6pre, Release: hsw4026atl-1.0.9-19110817, build: ptt1.190228.001.1.0.9-19110817.

    I got it a few hours ago and it wasn't even activated at that time.

    Code:
    1.) You need to enable developer options, enable usb debugging. 
    2.) Then get adblink, connect to device IP. (You'll have to authorize on box first attempt)
    3.) Click 'Uninstall APKs'-> Search "airtel", I saw 3 files.
    4.) DO NOT UNINSTALL FROM GUI. 
    5.) Click ADB Shell
    6.) delete the com.airtel.tv last.
    7.) This command to delete: pm uninstall -k --user 0 'App Name'
    .

    I installed an ATV Launcher, before deleting airtel packages. Install from GUI.

    Remote still works, not all buttons work. Airtel Remote Smart app for phone works, the pointer still works. I've managed to install JioTV and have gotten it semi working. :)
    edit- you can re-map remote buttons through an app,

    All of this was done while the 'please recharge' prompt was on screen. Its easy to bypass, you have to get into settings to enable developer options. I did get stuck once, I used to mic on remote and asked it to open play store. If you get stuck, use the google assistant to get out of a screen.

    This is what the box looks like:

    Someone please try this alternate method.

    Instead of uninstalling all the three "airtel" apps, can you all try this method:
    1) Sideload "Button Remapper" app to xsteam box.
    2) Open the app through settings and remap any button (for example Netflix button) to open ATV Launcher.
    3) Restart the box. When promp to recharge, just press the button remapped to ATV Launcher.
    4) You should be able to launch any app using ATV Launcher.
    Please someone try this and report whether this works or not.
    Note- Someone please try to install the new Google Launcher (the launcher available on the newly launched Google TV) and say whether it works on xsteam box or not.
    Also note- Instead of uninstalling the "airtel apps", try disabling them with this command: adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 <app package name> . So that people trying to revert to normal just have to re-enable them by using this command: adb shell pm enable <package_to_enable> .
    I don't own a stream box and planning to buy one.
