When I donwload the img file and zip it like the instruction says the box still says it’s an invalid upgrade package. How do I create the upgrade package to use for the upgrade.zip file upgrade instructions from the img file?

Kim

Use the IMG and the PC method.

Daz

I only have USB-A on the box and no USB-A – USB-A cable for it. Got any idea on a good one that you know works?

Kim

You can buy one like this:
https://www.amazon.com/C2G-54170-USB-Cable-Black/dp/B003VTZ070/
Or DIY if with two old cables. Connections are:
1 to 1
2 to 2
3 to 3
4 to 4

It says on all instructions to push the reset-button but I can’t find one. Where is it on A5Xmax.o.8822.s4?

Kim

Inside the audio jack?
Maybe don’t have, a95x devices have difernet versions.

Daz

So I have to open the box up and look at the board itself for a reset button? On the outside I have looked everywhere and there are no buttons there or holes there could be a button in. The box is a A5Xmax.o.8822.d4.

I have googled for any info about this but can’t find any info at all about it.

Kim

Hi. If you can’t found inside the audio jack, yes you need to open it. Is a low cost box.
If you don’t have reset button maybe you can found something like this, check the motherboard photo:

If you see anything I can use tell me.

Kim

Hi. You have the reset inside the audio jack, don’t need to open the box… as i say you the first time XD
Look here:comment image
Just insert a metal clip or something and press the button.

Daz

So how do I reset the box inside the audio-jack? Do not understand.

Kim

Follow the flash guide, you need to keep press this button when turn on the box.

Daz

But tell me how I can press that button when I don’t open the box. I still don’t understand that. And if I don’t have to open the box. Tell me how it’s possible to push the button.

Kim

Insert a toothpick in this jack and press the button, follow the arrow.

Hi. ok I got that now and it flashed but failed. It seems the 9.0 img was not for my box. I then flashed the 8.1 img instead, it didn’t fail but the box wount start. The only thing that happens after the flash and reboot is “Erasing” and then it goes back to sleep (red light) and never comes back blue again. Nothing on screen either. I really want this box to work again as it was the best of the ones I have. Any idea on how to find the correct img-file for the box and get it… Read more »

Ask to your shop for the correct firmware, share the link to help others.
If the product don’t work open a dispute and don’t waste more time in this low-cost box.

Daniel Johansson

I bought this box in Bangkok during vacation and it worked fine so far. There should be some kind of firmware update for it though.

Kim

Good luck!

Stevens

I use the MX10 Firmware (9.0) it’s more stable than original.

Everything works well, but after auto update google store to 13.xxxxx store not works.

Recep

Iyi günler. Yeni yazılımı yüklerken bir hata yaptım maçına a5x max komple kapandı. Bir arkadaşın yardımı ile 8.1 test yazılımı yükledik. Fakat çok kötü bir performans gösteriyor. Her tv yi acısımda kendini yeniden başlatıyor. Maosu görmüyor. Yanı sıkıntılı. Elinizde varsa bana gönderebilirmisiniz. Şimdiden çok teşekkür ederim.

Can i mount android 9 on A5X MAX.o.01.d4 version?

Maybe, the firmware don’t have indications.
IF now works, don’t touch it, my advice.
