Hi dear friends,
thank you in advance for your help. I have a strange stuation (at least for me) with this box from Foyu x96 mini.As you can see in photo and also written on paper box , it has Amlogic S905W 4G 32G rom, but if i go inside Kodi for example in System it says it has Rockchip 3229... then also on recovery mode on boot mode it states "android recovery rockchip 322x ..... I've tried with Amlogic burning tool but it doesn't recognize the hub connection and it doesn't burn another rom for S905w. I've tried shortening nand pins..nothing
Have you got any suggestions to erase all and burn an Amlogic s905w Rom , considering there's an S905w cpu?? i don't think it's a false one! there's no Rockchip inside!
thank you

ive seen amlogic devices recovery reporting as rockchip, its usally just a mismatched recovery, i would try and figure out mask rom mode for this board, see my video here for some info :)

Thank you for your kind answer,but i tried also with mask mode,it only sound but no connection. For me it's a fake chip,otherwise why with rockchip tool it normally connects? Also on kodi it's incredibly slow,and in system maximum resolution is 1280*720!! Absurd

yes I have a S905x chip, it doesn't look very good but I managed to take a picture.I tried with usb burninig tools but my box is not seen by the computer and I don't know how to use the nand method.

If your x96mini is not locked, you can help me with a stock firmware of your box, to try a rewrite of my box with the sd card method. Thanks anyway for the help. I have been looking for a solution to unlock the box for some time.

Yours is s905w, seems same situation.. i haven't got original firmware,in my case mine is made by Foyu,you can try to find them on internet, i don't know.. don't know why they're recognized as Rockchip..

Hello, thank you for your help. If I install the firmware from the link you sent me, can I then write another firmware? If I find the original firmware.

Hi, I tried LibreELEC but it doesn't work. I'm attaching the image with the received error, maybe you know what the problem is. Thanks

Yes I created a bootable sd card, with LibreELEC rk322x the box does not start, the LED remains off.

Well it look like you guys have a fake amlogic like me on the tag is 4GB RAM and 32GB flash store. All the inside chip has been marked like the real one but are fake. Main chip is RK3229 and the ram is just 1GB and 8GB flash. I successfully unbrick this **** using rkfactory tool and a rom for RK3229 chip. step to follow: 1. install rockcip drivers, 2. start factory tool, 3. load firmware in factory tool, 4. conect USB A - A cable to pc, 5. tooth pick in the AV port and pres the restore switch from inside, 6. connect USB A - A to the OTG USB port on the box the port is the one next to the tf card reader, 7, the hub is recognized by the pc and it be detected by the tool factory, 8. flash the firmware, enjoy.
