UNIVERSAL V2 - IF TOP DONT WORK

https://mega.nz/#!bphxHJBB!jRhp0AeNa8orSwscFJHJdE7M14_GxQgbHpnbq-21vy8



Step 1 Download & Extract the bundle for your device

You will be getting either a zip or 7z file, personally I would use 7zip to extract these files, you should get a recovery.img and also a folder called TWRP. If you have these two things move on to step 2

Step 2 - Locations

Both SD Card and USB being formatted Fat32 - Some boxes except most s905 you can use the SD card for both TWRP folder and recovery.img, Regardless I use SD only for recovery.img, so drag and drop the recovery.img onto the Fat32 SD Card and Drag and drop the TWRP folder onto the Fat32 USB drive. Done

Step 3 - Formatting before installing.

Connect everything but the power - Connect a real USB mouse/Airmouse to the box due to the regular remote will not work, connect the USB drive and connect the SD Card, Everything but power. Some boxes have a reset button on the side and some the reset button is inside the AV jack, you will feel it, If in the AV jack simply use a toothpick or use a Q Tip with the cotton end removed and slide it in the AV jack and you will feel the button.

HOLD THIS BUTTON AND DO NOT LET GO - At the same time plug it in and keep holding, boxes with physical power button press this now. You will be presented with a blue screen, you will get a read only scren most likely, slide to proceed.

First thing first I always recommend backing up partitions incase something is to go wrong. There are tons of cloned boxes its hard to cover them all. I personally would go to backup. Locate where it says storage, and change from internal to usb otg for USB drive or external sd for your SD Card. Backup all your partitions.

When done, go back. Press the little house button on the screen or the back button until back at the TWRP menu, go to restore, Make sure usb otg or external sd is chosen, wherever you put the TWRP folder, If you are using a box not from me PM me the model and I will confirm what to restore, for example, M8, M8S BCM and AP models, MX3, M10, You can restore all, S912 boxes some are different so PM me to be safe. After I tell you what to restore do so. Let it do its thing. Once done, reboot and enjoy. If it fails by any means. Do not reboot, just go back and choose wipe, format data, type yes press enter. Once done just go back and restore data JUST BY ITSELF so untick everything but data, once finished restore all the other partitions. All done

Enjoy the build - When you first boot my firmware let it sit after it boots for a good minute or two. It will auto load my custom firmware patches and more.

If you are using M8, M8S, M10, MXq you need to follow below -

When you start the TV box. Let it sit a few minutes and first things first. In Android applications click on No Frills CPU - the accelerometer and when it opens click apply and than exit. It is super important with my custom rom to unlock the other 2 CPU Cores and the other 4 GPU Threads. If this does not make sense just go into my apps and look for no frills, same app as on the desktop you will just see the name instead.

NOT EVERY FIRMWARE HAS NO FRILLS - IF NOT DO NOT WORRY ABOUT IT.


i do not own the firmware

credits go to ghostware.

if you have the recovery.img file on the root of the sd card, toothpick method should take you to TWRP where you can then flash the zip. did you give it some time (with the reset button pressed in)? it can take approx 10 seconds sometimes.

Either your download is corrupt, or you are not using TWRP to perform the update.

I also had that problem even though I flashed the square remote zip after the lollipop update. I might have flashed the M8N remote though to be honest and I don't have the box anymore to test more remote patches.

You can try the M8S remote zip from the link below and report back if it worked for you.

I had the exact same problem when trying to upgrade to something M8S+ based. Worked perfectly the first time, but I could not start it up after a cold boot. Have you tried my original approach instead using the Team DevDigitel ROM?

Hi d4nielr,

Wanted to thank you for the excellent work in compiling this ROM to support m8s app6330.

After trying out various ROMs and in the process bricking my device several times and un-bricking it using the burning tool, I finally came across your forum.

Thanks for the wonderful rom and the installation was a breeze and smooth sailing throughout.

Btw, for the installation I can only use the other most USB port. If I insert the sd card into the inner most usb port, it will take me to the bootloader.

So, for the TEAMWIN logo to appears, I need to put the sd card into the outer most usb port which is located at the back of my m8s unit.

cheers.......

Update.....
Unfortunately, after a cold boot, it doesn't work any longer. Back to kitkat using usb burning tool.

    Just a clarification, which ROM are you using as "skeleton", and what ROM did you take the /system partition from? :)

    i used a m8s+ rom and the 5.1.1 rom from acemax the only problem is with the m8s+ rom is ethernet dont work so by doing this i got ethernet to work.

    And what happens if you first go back to your stock Kitkat 4.4 ROM (with USB burning tool), and then try with my original approach (with SD card)?
