Firmware Upgrade Method for AM6 / MBOX M8 (CS838 / MX / M8)

A. Latest firmware

B. Upgrade Method:

  • Extract the 3 files and put them (xxxxxxxxxx.zip, recovery.img, factory_update_param.aml) to SD card* to root (don’t put inside any folder).
  • Then insert SD card to player.
  • There is a “Restore” button inside AV port, you can use the a paper clip, press it and do NOT release then power on the player.
  • After 5-10s, you can release the “Restore” button, then it will auto to reflash the firmware again. It should take around 3-5 mins.
  • Finally it will reboot, now should be ok.

* We recommend a SD card which is 1-8Gb with FAT / FAT32 format.

  6. Now I have a problem after a few hours test. Power button on remote control is able to shut down the device but it cannot start up the device again. After cutting off power and get it powered again, it starts normally.

    On the other hand, sometimes device volume has problems. Even if it is at max volume, it has no sound. All the volume controls of android are at max but no cure.
