Firmware for the H96 MAX V56 with 8 GB RAM and SoC RK3566 (04-21-2021)

New firmware with Android 12 valid for the Smart Box H96 MAX V56 dated 04-21-2021. A Box that includes a Rockchip Quad Core RK3566 SoC, with low consumption 64-bit ARM Cortex-A55 processors and a Mali-G52-2EE GPU of which you can consult our Review.

The RAM is 4/8 GB LPDDR4 and the storage is 32/64 GB eMMc, we do not see a micro SD card reader so if we want to expand the storage we will have to use one of the USB ports. Have Gigabit Ethernet port, WiFi 6 with dual antenna and Bluetooth 5.0. The connectors that we have in this case are a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0, SPDIF digital audio output and an HDMI 2.0a video output with support for resolutions up to 4k@60Hz.

  • The Box H96 MAX V58 with RK3566 SoC can be purchased at AliExpress from $38 with free shipping.

Hello I am “not” able to upload the firmware (Version:20221209.1056) using both “Factory Tool” & “RockChip Batch Tools”. I am coming across follwing errors: “(i) unpack firmware fail (ii) Error: loading firmware failed (iii) load firm failed”. I tried to download other versions (of firmwares and factory & batch tools) as well to no avail. My box is stuck at boot screen and is frozen. How can you help me please. My box model is H96 Max 3566 V56. Appreciate your help, guidance & reply please


Did you mix up V56 with V58? Picture looks wrong.


Not the other way? I think V56 is RK3566 while V58 is RK3588. And firmware is for 3566.


Just have found, that there exist “H96 MAX 3566” with Android 11. This is probably the right device. V56 and V58 are Android 12.
