Hi community.

I have a problem with my Android Box X96 Max Plus with the Amlogic S905x3 Chip.

The problem is that i can't install anything on it. I sign in with my google account and i got Error 403 and error 192 when i tried to install something from the playstore.
So i cleared the data and the cache for the playstore and i tried another account. I also did a factory reset on the box. Nothing works.

After this i tried to install an apk from a usb stick with setting unknown sources "on" but this also didn't work (installation abort).

Next step i downloaded the latest firmware for the box and tried to installed it on recovery mode but the error 21 appeared.
I also tried to flash TRWP in recovery mode (with a usb stick) but the error 21 also appeared.
Do i have to unlock the bootloader first or is the only way to flash a firmware on the box with a flash tool and the connected box on the PC (with)?

Whats wrong with this box or is something wrong with me?

Can you help me?

Thanks
Matthias

hello
i had the same problem the only thing that fixed it is to update firmware but to do that you need to identify your box model first
1-then download latest firmware
2-download and install usb burning tools : https://androidmore.com/download/4004/?dlm-dp-dl-force=1&dlm-dp-dl-nonce=baef81bb4a
3- open the usb burning tools application
4- Click the second option on the top bar to reveal the option for changing the language to english
5- click on the File option and click import image to import your firmware .img file.
6- Make sure to untick the overwrite key box
7-connect your box using male to male usb cable (plug it in the blue usb 3.0) and wait for drivers to be installed
8- unplug your box
9-go back to application and click start
8-connect your box and wait for the flash processes to finish
9-when flash is done unplug your box and click stop close usb burning tools
connect your box to your tv and enjoy

Thank you for your help 😀

This will be my next step when I get the usb a to usb a cable.

Can you recommend any custom rom for the x96 max plus box?

Thank you in advance.

you need to identify your box model first ( Plus , Plus2 , Plus100, etc )
if you have the 1000Mb Ethernet chip ( RTL8211F ) then you can try SLIMBOX ATV and AOSP last firmware (best one i have tested ):

I really like the slim box Version but i have another problem.

My internal storage says that I only have 32 GB but i ordered the 4/64gb Version (which also stand on the back of the Box). What's the problem?

ok i have figured out that i had a fake firmware on my box preinstalled when the box arrived. So i unfortunately have a 4/64 gb model.

For the solution in the topic, only flashing another firmware helped.

Kudos to SlamD for the help.
