You may try this and need to translate Korean. The international version firmware installation available now and you will use all google apps like youtube TV.

Thank you! i've been searching for international version for ages. Sadly the 1080p playback stutter when keystone correction turned on haven't been fixed yet.

By the way, have anyone know where to download the Chinese firmware version?

Edit:
I tried to install it. At first it didn't read my flash drive because it was formatted in NTFS no blinking LED light, just straight to Home screen. So then i reformat it to FAT32 and the power indicator LED blinks. But then it said "software upgrade error" and booted back to original home screen. Anyone know the solution to this? I already placed the firmware file in the root folder. It was 32GB Flashdrive

i also experienced the same problem during the software upgrade. it was failed at 1% of the upgrade and projector was turned off automatically. I copied the firmware file into the flash memory(2GB) once again and it worked. I don't know why.. but please try to download the file and copy it into the flash memory once again. If it doesn't work, try with another old flash memory.

You must use USB 2.0 and format in FAT32.

Hello,
I just installed the international firmware on my Wanbo T2 Max, and it's work pretty well.
But now the screen is a bit laggy (like when the "zoom" option was activated), and I don't see any option to disable it...
Also, I installed Chromecast built in app from Google Play, but my phone doesn't see it

International version seems to be always zoom on. No setting for deactivation. Chromecast built in not working for me too. If you install Youtube TV then you can link mobile to Wanbo by TV code in youtube TV setting. https://knowhowbank.tistory.com/115

There's no way to have keystone correction without lag with international ?
Is there a way to have fast cast (miracast or chromecast) with this projector ?

International version(Sep 2020) is lower than the newest one(Nov 2020) and looks like the very initial version which had been released before it was officially sold.

There is no option to disable zoom function at the moment as far as I know.

I am wondering how we reach out to developer in Wanbo. Email to Wanbo service team in Chine always returned.

We will need to ask the manufacturer for the fix the issue with keystone in future release.

i've found this : http://szwanbo.cn

i know few other ressources about the wanbo :

I am never able to get thwebsite to load unfortunately...

The fan mod looks immense, a bit more than I am wanting to do at the moment however!

My main gripes with the international firmware at the moment are the frame drops (YouTube for example) and the low resolution Netflix playback. Maybe also some audio lag. If these issues can be fixed that would be great for me. Is anyone else experiencing other issues?

Guys,

I just created a video showing how you can update this projector with the just-released international/global firmware.

This firmware is very stable and it comes with Google Play store too!

You may view it at

Enjoy!

I'm actually using the last chinese firmware (20112311). I removed some of chinese app and installed custom launcher. Disabling zoom option make it way more smooth.
I don't need play store, most of useful apps can't be installed there... I rather use apkpure or aptoide.
Also, if this firmware doesn't solve the lag of the keystone correction (and even don't allow to disable it), he's completely useless...

Hi guys, i want to share my experience. I have the stock chinese version of android and also with zoom settings on i can see images very smooth. You Just need to enable Developer Settings and activate "Enable GPU rendering". Also i activate with remote controller HDMI EDID Version 2.0. Tested with Google Chromecast 3 generation and Xiaomi mi box, with same good resulta.

You should try 1080p/60fps video playback.
It's still lag for me, even with GPU rendering enabled...

    Hi,

    I bought the T2 Max international version (with Android 9) a week ago, so I've had time to test it a bit now.

    I was able to make different tests on many things to optimize the thing as much as possible and I arrived at a perfect result now and which satisfies me completely, I said to myself that it would be perhaps useful that I make my return here.

    First, for the conditions of use, I use the T2 Max with a Fire Stick 4K Max. Forget the integrated android, it can help but it is not good. I bought 33 euros on Amazon the Fire Stick 4K Max, for the price it is well worth it and it gives a boost to T2.

    I also use Plex to stream content from my NAS/PC to the T2 Max, in local networks (also tested in Wifi, no problem).

    Now you have all the information about how I use the T2 MAX.

    But even so there were stutters in 1080p, small but very present during panorama or traveling, while I was in HDMI. I use the trapezoidal correction but I think that 80% of the people will also use it just to make a good rectangular frame. I didn't see any change in the stutters with or without on my version of the T2 Max, it was identical anyway.

    After a few tests I noticed that the stutters were greatly reduced if I switched the fire stick to 1080p 50 Hz resolution instead of 1080p 60 hz. I came to two conclusions:

    - Forcing 50 Hz and therefore 50 FPS helped to relieve the T2 Max, Fewer frames to calculate per second more power available? maybe.
    - Or the T2 Max has a framepacing problem in 60 Hz. After all, movies, series, animation are all either in 24 HZ, 25 Hz or 30 Hz.

    I have largely favored this second answer.

    Now the things I have done to correct this little stuttering problem:

    - Go to the Developer mode on the android of the T2 Max and force the 2D GPU rendering. With my android 9 version, I had to install the "Developer settings" program, easily available on the play store.

    - In the Fire Stick 4K Max, in the "Display and Sound" settings, there are two important options. The first one is to leave the resolution on Auto, it will take care of it very well by itself and it is necessary for the next step.

    - The second important option is just below: "Match original framerate". On an application that supports it, it allows a 24 FPS movie to pass the T2 Max in 24 hz and thus to have a perfect frametime. Fortunately T2 Max handles the frequency change very well too. Turn it ON !

    - Now on Plex, you have the option "Refresh Rate Switch" in Video Settings, which allows you to send the signal to the firestick to change the frequency, which itself will send the signal to T2 Max. Activate it !

    After doing this, now when I start any movie, serie, anime on PLEX, no matter what frequency it is, whether it's 24 Hz, 25 HZ, 50 Hz or 60 Hz, the firestick will adapt and change the signal to match.

    Result: An ultra fluid image and frametime, a perfect match. No stuttering even minimal, nothing! It's perfect.
    With or without Zoom, with or without trapezoidale correction.


    And I've tested every possible situation given my library, believe me. Movies in 4K, in 1080p, in 480p, in PAL, in NTSC, anime, series. And I have seen absolutely no problems.

    Having spent time configuring it, I thought I'd share my feedback. I don't regret my purchase, this projector is incredible once it's mastered.
    For less than 150 euros (T2 Max + fire Stick) I have an ultra fluid projector, which reads everything, which does everything, with a good image and without slowing down.

    Sorry for the large amount of text, I hope it helps some people here. :)

    Hello, I solved the problem. The device now works fine. I contacted the seller. He sent me the Recovery Firmware. I want to share it with you. Because this process is really frustrating.

    T2 Max Problem

    Recovery Firmware
    The mail from wanbo company tells how to install
    Ekran Görüntüsü (9).png

    This happened as a result of a wrong update. It was fixed after installing Recovery Firmware.

    Currently I'm using USB to play the movie , I'm using Kodi player when default the player will utilities the Graphics hardware to enhanced the image but the image quality is very bad , the color is horrible and shuttering... only way is to unable it so it looks alot better and smoother, downside is the color of the movie is slightly darker.. wondering will that improve if projectile on anti light curtain ? if anyone had experience projectile on anti light curtain as T2 Max is only 150 ansi which could make the image even more darker if projectile on anti light curtain?
    Hmmm... Some websites mentioned it is 250 ansi lumens.

    See this. * Not mine *

    Thanks. I won’t use keystone then. Would you know how many inch diagonal image I will get at 1.6m distance?
    I got 130inch by 3,50m distance...round about 60~70 Inch i guess

    Hi, I bought this projector and it came with Android 9.0 version. I asked the seller to provide the firmware and he sent it to me without problem.

    40546163-38f4-4936-b512-aeb0b0681212.jpg

    I currently have that firmware, but the one you sent me I don't know if it is the same.

    the firmware reference is: WB_FJ035FHD05_ZJ.T9255E.350R00_1G16G_IrWBFTEN_350_4O3W_WANBO_20211115152313_ 折射 _ 带 自动 梯形 _ 智 象 主页 _Eshare.rar

    I share the link: Actualización de Android 9.0 20211115152313

    Sorry for my bad English.

    Edit: The seller confirms that the firmware they have sent is the same as the one I have in the attached photos. therefore, I don't have to update anything.

    Good news everyone!
    Zoom setting can be disabled with the Chinese firmware NewLauncer home UI. Our long awaited zero frame drop on YouTube vanced 1080p 60fps video is doable. Below the steps to disable the zoom in international firmware:

    1. Download the attached NewLauncher app extracted from the Chinese firmware.
    2. Install it.
    3. Press your remote Home button after installed and select the NewLauncher.
    4. Go to Setting.
    5. Select Projection.
    6. Use your remote select the Zoom setting switch and disable it.
    7. System will ask you to reboot.
    8. Reboot and ENJOY!!

    I think this would be the ultimate solution for our T2 Max with both zoom off and with Google services all available. Thanks all for all the effort and information try and error. 🙂👍

    How to Uninstall Carrier/OEM Bloatware Without Root Access (xda-developers.com)

    I use this method to remove some built-in apps using this app, no root needed (you'll need this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ttxapps.wifiadb, https://apkpure.com/wifi-adb-debug-over-air/com.ttxapps.wifiadb)

    Edit: This is the launcher I use

    TVLauncher - Apps on Google Play

    Edit 2: You need this to enable Wifi adb

    WiFi ADB for Android - APK Download (apkpure.com)

    Edit 3: Just remove all toptech and zseasn and com.aispeech.tvui and com.toptech.mitv.wfd stuffs for me

    Shortcut Creator - Apps on Google Play

    Edit 4: With above you can move zoom and flip settings to main launcher

    Edit 5: Maybe I deleted too many apps? Google Play when I search it keeps crashing, probably should keep some toptech files

    Edit 6: this is the file manager I use

    I'm on International firmware version W073_DC.1080T2.Zeasn.21010915, when I check for updates and use adb logcat I can see that this URL is used when checking for updates (no updates available):

    Code:

    to get a list of OTA update files available. Current there is only one entry which looks like an update from W073_zeasn.1080T2.EN.20122420 to W073_zeasn.1080T2.EN.20123109, but that is not the latest version:
