I'm using mibox to watch Netflix and YouTube. I have my mibox for about 4 years and everything was ok until tommorow. Netflix after run freezed for few seconds and showed error UI-800-3 (307006). "More information" shows error UI-113. I checked my network connection, but its was ok.
Steps I performed:
1. Restart router
2. Restart mibox
3. Logoff Netflix
4. Wipe Netflix app
5. Turn off mibox and tv for whole night
6. Chenge HDMI wire and plug on other HDMI socket on TV
7. Connect mibox to other wifi
8. Factory reset my router
9. Install older versions of AndroidTV Netflix
10. Factory reset mibox
11. Install Add-on on Kodi (I logged in but no video playing.)
12. Cast video from Netflix app on smartphone to mibox.

My account is ok, Netflix works on PC on browser, Netflix app on my Android Redmi Note 7 is working.
I dont know what to do. I know my device is certified, it has Netflix preinstalled.
Does anybody know a solution?

Edit: I have android 6.0.1

I ran into the same issue today. I'm not sure when it started as I didn't use my device for the past 2 days. But anyway I followed all the guides online and ended up doing 2 factory reset which didn't fix the issue. I was still on Android 8.0 though because I wanted to keep TrueHD passthrough so after the 2nd factory reset I allowed the 9.0 upgrade to go through and now Netflix is working again. Bummer!

I read many bad opinions about updating this Mi Box to higher versions of Android. I was avoiding to update as hard as I can.
Are there any problems with version 9.0? I heard about lagging, slowing down, apps crashing...
Which functions I will lost updating from 6.0.1 to 9.0? I know it is one way procedure, it cant be undone.. :(

I'm not sure about what you lose from 6.0.1, but I know from 8.0 to 9.0 you lose HD audio passthrough. Atmos with DD 5.1 still works but you can no longer pass 7.1 Atmos, True HD, and DTS X. If you don't care for those then it's not a big deal to upgrade

Those who don't want to upgrade can send ESN and I can integrate it in a modded Netflix apk which will play Netflix in full HD.

Here is the Netflix apk which should work on Mibox.
The apk doesn't contain the full ESN, just the part which is the same for all Miboxes:
Does it work on ANY Mibox 3?

I ask because I have the same device (MDZ 16 AB), and the same problem - my Netflix stopped working on 10/12, a week ago.

When I saw this topic it was like the "light at the end of the tunnel", as I also don't want to update the box (mine is ATV 8.0 Oreo) and yet wish to have Netflix back. So I didnt think twice when I saw the modded apk file, so immediately went try to install it on the box.

Unfortunately, installation failed! I tried using Root Explorer app, as I always do when installing apks on mibox. But no success there. There is a message that says someting like "could not match the previous installed version." Reminding that Netflix app is a "system native" one, that is impossible to uninstall, just deactivate. Maybe it has something to do with this.

PLease, let me know a solution for this. I was so close that giving up now is not an option! 💪

It should work on any Mibox if you manage to install it. I don't have the Mibox myself. I just modified the apk with the ESN number. Try this from another user:
1. delete app data
2. force stop app
3. Uninstall
4. Restart device
5. install moded apk

My mibox is running on Android 6.0.1 and Netflix was preinstalled but not system app, I was able to uninstall it.
Maybe it is possible to uninstall Netflix via ADB?

Thanks for the feedback. (y)

I'm realizing that the holdback is my Netflix being a system app, impossible to remove it completely. I've already wiped off everything I could from it - app data, unnistall updates... basically it is back to factory version. That is the best I can do.

Previously, I was able to install other Netflix versions via Aptoide TV (none worked, of course), through the "update" option, much like the Play Store way. So maybe the matter is the modded apk's way of installation.

Well, if it helps to clarify the issue, this is exactly the error message after trying to install the modded apk. It says:

"INSTALL_FAILED_UPDATE_INCOMPATIBLE Package com.netflix.ninja signature do not match the previously installed version_ignoring!

So, would anyone know of any more ways to erase a system app on Android TV? I can't believe we are on the threshold of 2022 and there is still no way to get rid of these bloatwares quickly and easily!

Or else, any indication of a nice and clean tutorial for removing app via ADB, specific for mibox 3, would be of great help!

Happens also in my mibox 3.
How come lots of people are having this issue these days.
Seems like they are having some kind of expiration date bug.
