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?

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!

the same things on MXQ pro S905. no recovery mode.

I bought here. - h t t p : / / aliexpress.com/item/MXQ-Pro-Android-TV-Box-Amlogic-S905-Quad-Core-Android-5-1-DDR3-1G-Nand-Flash/32500107918.html

Most likely a defective series. The seller does not respond.

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?

Would you mind sending me some info to help? My MXQ Pro 4k keeps freezing during playback and kicking me out to menu. Would like to install a factory image that isn't modified by the seller I bought from who won't respond. Can pm info here to : powduh09 or email, or hangouts to [email protected] thnaks

Pressing Reset button and USB Burning Tool giving no response. Its just boots to same screen again. Stock recovery is there I know (tried once when it was working) but how to get in to that when home display is frozen??

    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

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