Hi everyone, I need your help. My T2 max is great but I can’t seem to adjust brightness. I can get to the menu and adjust user picture settings for brightness, but it doesn’t change on the projected image. I’ve tried both the 3 line menu on the remote and on the settings portion of the OS. I just need my screen a little brighter, there’s no difference from 50 and 100 brightness when I adjust it. Help please. 😢😢😢
Hi... I'm in the same situation... the picture adjustments are not been relfected and I'm not happy with default ones :-(

Hi!

My device arrived yesterday, I have been acquainted with it ever since.
This is global version, with 10.2021 firmware, and Android 9.0
The hardware is good for this price, but this software is terrible.
On my device auto trapezoidal correction is fine, play media file only from FAT32 (no NTFS, no exFAT).

I want to use the following programs, but I have many troubles (in Central EU);
- HBO Max work fine from Google Store
- Prime Video from GS send error message (bad HDMI), from the Wanbo App Store it's horrible
- Netflix not available from GS, the stock (from W App Store) also awful (only Netflix-light)

I tried download Prime Video and netflix apk's but did not allow them to be installed.
Could you help me how to run these two apps (PV, Netflix)?

Thank you,

Olá, pessoal,

Boas notícias da minha parte, entrei em contato com o vendedor e ele me enviou uma nova versão do sistema operacional e agora funciona muito melhor quando a correção de 4 keystone está ativada. Ainda faltam alguns frames, mas nada demais, consigo jogar XBOX no meu projetor.

Só para deixar claro, meu projetor é T2 Max (Android 9 - 1GB - 16GB). Minha versão anterior do sistema operacional era TVOS-04.16.031.01.12

Baixe no rapidshare

Passos:
1. Baixe e descompacte, copie os arquivos do sistema (5 arquivos) para o diretório raiz do disco usb (Formato:FAT32), conecte o projetor ao disco usb e, em seguida, conecte a fonte de alimentação (etapas importantes). Normalmente, meu projetor parece inicializar depois de conectar à fonte de alimentação, mas na verdade não, apenas o ventilador soa por 2 ou 3 segundos e depois para, então faça o passo 2 depois disso.

2. Pressione o botão liga/desliga por cerca de 10 segundos, aparecerá uma barra de progresso que indica a atualização. Se não houver barra de progresso, você pode tentar a etapa 1 novamente.

3. Após 100% de conclusão, aguarde cerca de 5 minutos. Depois que os dados forem carregados com sucesso, você poderá entrar na interface.

Não funcionou para mim na primeira vez que tentei (não inicializou no modo de atualização). Reformatei o usb para FAT 32, desconectei a fonte de alimentação, conectei no USB e depois ligo no Power, segurei o botão liga/desliga até ver uma barra de progresso e então tudo foi feito.

Boa sorte!
ola fiz a atualização de que você indicou, uma atualização na versão global, mas estava me conectando na internet, mas estava autorizado o tempo todo, eu estava na versão chinesa, e estava procurando um firmware global. Alguém sabe como resolver isso?

Just received mine in Singapore, with software version Feb242022-094639.

Notes to share:
- Software is not Android TV. It is skinned android mobile with Android TV Google Playstore.
- Do not update Netflix. It will become 'incompatible with your device' and won't start anymore. Since latest Netflix is not compatible with this wanbo, you will not find Netflix in the playstore to reinstall. I had to software reset to get back the original version of Netflix provided by Wanbo so that it can work perfectly again, and I must not update it.
- Video settings I used:
Pic mode: User
Contrast: 32
Brightness: 52
Hue: 0
Sharpness: 10
Saturation: 60
Advanced video: turn off both NR, turn on MaxVivid
- Builtin miracast app only works well with 1st device it connects with after projector bootup, subsequent connections sometimes fail, or video not smooth.
- DLNA streaming from my laptop using VLC app works perfectly. Youtube works perfectly. Youtube cast from phone also works perfectly once linked via tv code.


In projector settings, I do not know what 'Auto Up and Down Trapezoid' and 'Horizontal Calibration' means. Hope someone can help explain. Thanks in advance.

My T2 is om android 9, it manages to improve the fluidity in the videos using the fire stick.

On T2, in developer mode, enable 2d rendering and turn off animations.
Turn off wi-fi and bluetooth.

On firetv put in vídeo on 1080p 50hz.

Hello guys,

Good news from my side, I contacted the seller and he has sent me a new OS version and now it works much better when 4 keystone correction is enabled. I'm still missing some frames but nothing big, I'm able to play XBOX on my projector.

Justo to be clear, my projector is T2 Max (Android 9 - 1GB - 16GB). My previous OS version was TVOS-04.16.031.01.12

Download from rapidshare

Steps:
1. Download and decompress, copy the system files (5 files) to root directory of the usb disk (Format:FAT32), plug the projector into the usb disk, and then connect the power supply (Important steps). Usually my projector seems to boot up after connecting to power supply but actually it doesn't, just the fan sounds for 2 or 3 seconds and then stops, so do step 2 after this.

2. Press the power button for about 10 seconds, will have a progress bar indicates the upgrade. If there is no progress bar, you can try step 1 again.

3. After 100% completion, please wait for about 5 minutes. After the data is loaded successfully, you can enter the interface.

It did not work for me the first time I tried (did not boot on update mode). I reformat the usb to FAT 32, disconnected the power supply, connected to USB and then connect to Power, hold the power button until I saw a progress bar and then everything was done.

Good luck!
Image flipped and upside down on Android 9.0 device as well...?!

Hi all,

I just got the T2Max with the TVOS-04.16.031.01.12 version yesterday (and the type plaque matches the image on the first page of this thread). The first time it worked as expected: I connected to Wifi, checked for OTA updates (nothing found), I connected a Fire TV stick via HDMI and all was smooth.
However, after shutting down and moving the device to a different room, plugging back in there, I got the same issue as reported/fixed in the Android 6.0 thread https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/wanbo-t2-max-android-6-0.4191663/page-28#post-85651381
Image flipped and upside down. Did any of you have the same issue with the Android 9.0 version? I am wondering whether I should try to flash the version you linked here, but wanted to hear whether others had the same issue.

Thanks for your help,

Hello,

I just purchased mine with a global model with android 9.0

however I found out that I was unable to play Netflix, Disney Hotstar and HBO go as seems like their provider blocks the apps from streaming.

Whenever I play the movie, only subtitles and sounds come out and no image at all.

Please help

Anyone not having Netflix working? I started with eng.huab.20210928.122327 and now have eng.huab.20220312.131717

The Google Play store version gives the error: "This device is not optimized for Netflix. (-14)"
The Wanbo Store version starts, but the remote does not work after startup. It hangs on 'Get started' screen.

Actually with Google I seem to have found a list of OTA updates: http://media.toptech-developer.com:2300/rest/version/list it seems to contain an OTA update with eng.huab.20220507.182705. Still have to try.

I got mine last week with Android 9 and the installed Netflix and YouTube app both play 1080p. You always must choose open - never choose update or they'll probably stop working. You can do a firmware reset if you tried updating. Also I updated to the latest firmware (from page 2 by Titanium) and this really improved the smoothness of playback.

Thanks alot. The system feels more stable on this version. No lags by navigating through options.

Which alternative Launcher are you guys using? Stuck with Wolf Launcher. Every app incl. Sideloaded apps are shown and easily accessible. But is there something preferable, better in regard of features?

Actually, I've noticed an odd side effect of the latest firmware - the options button (to the right of Home) no longer brings up the quick menu. A bit annoying as you can't change the picture settings with the current image on screen.

Has anyone tried Projectivy Tools on the T2 Max ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.spocky.projengmenu&hl=en&gl=US ) ?
I've used this on another Xiaomi projector and it was handy as a launcher. I'll probably try it later this week.

    Some notes related to this device

    I managed to fix "Unable to obtain MAC address" error on wifi connection in this way
    Go within Settings -> About Projector -> Hold click button on Version for few seconds -> usb debugging on OFF (that enable ADB over wifi without third-party apps. adb over usb instead doesn't work remaining on charging status)
    Then reboot and everything seems fine.

    I'm also looking for ir (remote control) mapping in order to use my phone IR blaster.
    Looking at the dmesg logs, seems to use this mapping. I'm trying to write a lirc config and load it with irplus app

    Code:
    power   0x0074
    back    0x009e
    up      0x0067
    down    0x006c
    right   0x006a
    left    0x0069
    vol+    0x0073
    vol-    0x0072
    ok      0x001c

    Just want to share in case anyone else out there is using VLC android to play videos via DLNA, do DISABLE the VLC's hardware acceleration setting in T2Max, otherwise the video quality will be poorer.

    Does anyone know how to access the developers option menu? I want to activate GPU rendering to see if I get a better framerate when reproducing video from an USB.
    Not necessary. Install this APK and it will show a Shortcut to Developer Menu https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...manager-change-launcher-without-root.4176349/

    do you have android version or tvos version if i may ask? and when you say VLC media player is it from your pc via hdmi or using apps inside projector?
    thank you
    My proyector came with Android 9 and it still has Android 9. However, it is a version of Android 9 mod by the manufacturer. It is called TVOS by the manufacturerer in settings/info. Basically, I updated the proyector to the latest version (which is not available via OTA, but it was uploaded by a user here in this thread). In fact, there are two versions uploaded in this thread. I tried with one, it didn't update the proyector. So I tried with the other, it did update the proyector.

    And when I say VLC, I'm talking about the app in the proyector installed from the play store. The film is on a USB thumb connected to the USB port.

    But I'd like to refine something that I said. I said that the film plays at 60fps, but that's not exactly true. What I wanted to say is that it plays exactly like in my computer, without any stutter. However, films normally play at 24fps (that's how they are recorded). If you are used to game at 120hz, you will find some choppiness if you look for it. But that's not a problem of the proyector.

    It's weird that my firmware is nearly not as up to date as yours. Mine does have the original Android OS side menu you show on that last post you made on the 6.0 thread.

    I keep getting I'm on the latest version. I'll try a few more times. Not that big of a deal as I'm not trying to fix any issue.


    Firmware mais recente 👍

    Found the link to the firmware I have installed.

    https://www.mediafire.com/file/hvhbsquns26uuuu/WB_FJ035FHD05_ZJ.T9255E.350R00_1G16G_IrWBFTEN_350_4O3W_WANBO_20211115152313_%E6%8A%98%E5%B0%84_%E5%B8%A6%E8%87%AA%E5%8A%A8%E6%A2%AF%E5%BD%A2_%E6%99%BA%E8%B1%A1%E4%B8%BB%E9%A1%B5_Eshare.rar/file

    You can try this one. Update with USB procedure. After what you said, I think I'll keep it as is for now instead of installing the one you sent.
    Hello!

    I also have the Wambo T2 Max with android 9.0 my firmware is Sep112021-190039. I managed to upgrade to your version, but the lag is still there with an HDMI input if I use any type of keystone correction which enables zoom.

    Without zoom it is perfect, but still, it's a bummer as I have to reset the zoom to 0 all the time for me to not have the lag. Might help a little @andresousa.com
    Oh and also you need to extract the files from the zip on the USB ( I actually had both the ZIP and the extracted files together so not sure which worked ) and make sure your USB has a FAT32 format. Before you plug your USB in, take the AC cord out, insert the USB and then turn on the projector, you will have to wait for it to do its thing.

    I have done tests with GPU rendering on and EDID 2.0, still the same shuttering with any keystone/zoom settings. I still have to see how it behaves in these conditions with the 1080p settings.

    The thread from beforehand recommended using ABD commands and the Chinese Launcher, which I might try to see if it changes anything... .

    This thread is about T2 Max variant running Android 9.0, made by Wanbo.

    There are at least 2 versions of T2 Max:
    #1. Android 6.0
    #2. Android 9.0

    THE FIRMWARE OF THESE 2 MODELS ARE INCOMPATIBLE

    This thread is about #2. If you have #1, please go here.

    Also...
    This thread is not about the T2 Free. (check the bottom of your unit)
    This thread is not about the T2R Max.
