Does anyone know if it is possible to downgrade Mecool Kii Pro from Android 7.1.2 to Android 5.1.1 so that I can load Malaysk' incredibly good software? I have a 5.1.1 Kii Pro box running Malaysk, but it constantly locks up and the cause was never pinpointed so I bought another one. Here is why I want to downgrade and load Malaysk. The old box plays everything Netflix has to offer. The new box will NOT play Wild, Clear and Present Danger and Non-Stop. There are probably other titles, too. I have checked settings for both boxes and as far as I can tell, they match. I cannot determine what it is about the new box which is causing the issue with Netflix. The new box User Agent includes "Android 7.1.2; KII Pro. Maybe the other one presents itself as a phone.... Real pain, whatever it is. New box kernel version is 3.14.29 Thu Nov 9 19:41:09 CST 2017 Build KII Pro - Userdebug 7.1.2 NHG47L 20171109.193730.V0928. CPU Z says the cpu is Amlogic AArch64 Processor rev 4 . The purchase description is as follows: Mecool KII Pro Amlogic S905D 2GB RAM 16GB ROM 5.0G WIFI Bluetooth 4.1 DVB-T2/S2 TV Box - EU

Old age. Im gettting stupid. I knew the s905D was incompatible and yet I didn't notice S905D right in the product description. As the saying goes, if it had been a snake, it would have bitten me. Duh. Embarrassing . Netflix has no idea what the problem is and eventually just throw up their hands and say not all Android devices are supported. Anybody wanna trade a S905D for an S905?

What version of Netflix app are you using. Are you on an old one? Apparently versions before 5.x.x (I'm not sure actually of the version where they made the change..) work also with rooted devices, and they still play. I have a 3.something on a mini led projector that works fine, although the latest don't work at all. You can find archives of the apps on the net,vtry it out if you haven't already.

Copied over the other version, same problem.

The problems is that only some Netflix movies won't play, but I will follow up on your suggestion because I forgot to compare the version on my old box with the version on the new box. If they are different, I will copy from the old to the new. Thanks for reminding me. This is another obvious oversight on my part.
I could have sworn I edited this. The Netflix version from the old box didn't make a difference on the new one. I am comparing the build.prop files. Is this key at all senstive?:ro.product.brand=Amlogic . On the box that works, this value is Android. I'd like to change that line and see if Netflix behaves differently.

Do not waste your time
This is a Widevine Level1 DRM problem
Netflix law
You can try another netflix version here

I will try the other version when I get home. But just so I am clear, Netflix employs different DRM on different movies? Wondering why anything plays on Netflix if DRM is broken. On the other hand, I did see widevine references in build.prop for my old KII box which are not in build.prop for the new KII box. The old box plays all three Netflix selections that the new box does not play. I will read up on how build.prop works. My theory was that on install Netflix looks at build.prop to set itself up and that something in the new box build prop is offending Netflix's servers. Maybe it is Widevine as you have pointed out. Many thanks for your suggestions.

    Download Version 4.5, Android 5.1 ONLY OLD KII Pro!:https://yadi.sk/d/-PEt50qR3G99GQ
    Version 5.0 of April 2, 2017
    1. Added support for Picons ( images Channel )
    2. Added to the TV Settings item autoframerate
    3. Added support for scripts in Init.d
    Now to the Picon. On NTV + 36 satellite, I remade them and lay them out. For other satellites, your help is required. In order for the picons to show up, you need to copy the Picons folder into the internal memory of the receiver to the root of the disc. The path will look like this - mnt/sdcard/picons/. To make the picon appear on a specific channel, the name of the png file must have the same name as the channel. For example channel name First HD, then the picture name should be such First HD.png To make it much easier to fill your backup channels in the Channel Editor and just copy the name of the channel to the picture. Picks are recommended with a resolution of 220X132, and then put it on this site, and I'll add them to my main message.
    Here are the ready Pikons for NTV + 36 degree satellite - View attachment Picons.rar
    Download Version 5.0:https://yadi.sk/d/iZXx2zz73GZmau
    Examples of Pikons of 220x132 with names: https://yadi.sk/d/rK4xvWlt3Gbo7j
    Movistar+ picons - https://yadi.sk/d/_kzwudQB3GbDzz

    Version 5.2 of May 30, 2017, Android 5.1 ONLY OLD KII Pro!
    1. The default picture in the display of pics in the DTV application is deleted. (You can set transparent picos)
    2. The picture of the displayed picos is enlarged.
    3. Replaced bootanimation.
    4. Added what did Pily_W (for which many thanks to him)
    Boot with init.d support, root shell, more than 100 hid drivers
    SAMBA server, copy speed ~ 11.5MB / s, minimal assembly, no GUI (settings are in /system/usr/data/samba/smb.conf, login: admin, pass :admin)
    If you have a different workgroup name on the network on behalf of WORKGROUP, then go to /system/usr/data/samba/smb.conf and change the name in the line "workgroup = WORKGROUP"
    MSG is a very useful micro application for displaying dialog boxes and notifications from under the shell
    The autoframerate script and LED display scripts output toasts via MSG:
    Box loading (flashing LED to bootcomplete), temperature (t> 85 ° C - LED SOS flashing), pseudo-standby mode (located in the "New Launcher" lunar - red LED is on)
    5. Added control of the aero mouse, here's a https://ru.aliexpress.com/item/MX3-...9a0a984fe7d23f02-1495990550231-02738-VnYZvQVf
    If you have version 5.0 of the firmware, then you can flash without losing data - read ReadME.txt - it lies with the firmware in the archive.
    Download Version 5.2:https://yadi.sk/d/Z9OzpszX3JeVVw

    Version 5.5 of 02/07/2017, Android 5.1 ONLY OLD KII Pro!
    Check who's with the new WiFi!
    This firmware works without problems and with the old WiFi module - I personally checked it myself.
    + The launcher is modified.
    + Added provider ID
    For example :
    112 - NTV +
    253 - Tricolor
    + Fixed channel panel.

    Download version 5.5, Android 5.1 ONLY OLD KII Pro!: https://yadi.sk/d/I97OH-2w3KgVda

    Version 6.0 of 13/12/2017, Android 5.1 ONLY OLD KII Pro!
    Android base from the factory firmware from August 3, 2017.
    1. The provider's name is written to the root of the internal memory in the folder SDCARD\Picons\namesprov\ names.ini
    We look in the InfoBar or in the Channel list number of the provider and then write his name.
    Example file names.ini:
    Code:
    [settings]
    112=NTV +
    43001=GeoTelekom
    253=Tricolor
    2. The image of the provider must be copied to the folder SDCARD\Picons\Piconprov with the same name that you wrote in the names.ini file
    For example :
    Code:
    NTV+ image name will be NTV+ .png
    GeoTelekom image name will be GeoTelekom.png
    Tricolor image name will be Tricolor.png

    3. The satellite image must be copied to the SDCARD \ Picons \ Piconsat folder
    The image name must match the satellite name in the DTV-Menu-Settings-Satellite List
    For example :
    Code:
    Eutelsat 36A image name will be Eutelsat 36A.png

    If the satellite name is a slash "/" then in the DTV-Menu-Settings-Satellite list, select the satellite and click Edit.
    Write your satellite name without a slash.
    For example, the satellite name was Eutelsat 36A/36B, then rename it to Eutelsat 36A and the name of the picture will also be Eutelsat 36A.png and the position
    picture in the folder SDCARD\Picons\Piconsat

    Download fully customized Picons for satellite 36, provider NTV + (suitable for other satellites, if the names match) -
    https://yadi.sk/d/a68DD28i3QaFku
    Unarchive. Copy the entire Picons folder to the internal memory of the device.

    Hi. I am on v2 18/11/16. When I watch from the dvb-s2, I have a "null null" sign in the upper left hand side.
    Do you know what it is and how it can be fixed?
    It is responsible for this setting Weather. You can enable or disable it in the Settings app DTV.
