How to flash a Firmware (step by step)
#1
hello everyone,
I got a lot of knowledge on this fourm, and now It's time to contribute my knowledge (and check if there really is such a thing “active members” to get free samples, I invested a lot...).

so, the guide:

to get to recovery mode - there is a reset button in the AV port.
so, Power up your device by pressing (and holding) reset button found in AV port with toothpick (that not work to me so I cut the toothpick in half and then it work).
If the box is not work try to do a factory reset and if after the factory reset the box not work - flash the Firmware (It sounds complex, but I will explain step by step):
You need to get the firmware of your android tv box, for that you need to go to this website [/url][url=http://www.tvboxnews.com/category/firmware/]http://www.tvboxnews.com/category/firmware/
or send private message to the admin with your android  tv box configuration (like A95X android 6 2+16). 
Extract the zip and then you will get a folder with the firmware and Folder named ”tool usb" (this is "amlogic usb burning tool").
From this section I would recommend you connect your android tv box to power and connect a dual USB cable to the first usb port in the android tv box and Normally turn it on.
run the setup (in “tool usb” folder) And automatically you will get a pop up with installation of the driver (Finish the installation).
Turn off the Android tv box and disconnect it from the computer.
Open “USB_Burning_Tool” And change the language to English on the second pane from left.
Click "file" and then click "import file" button, navigate to the firmware you downloaded ending in “.img”.
Below the stop and refresh button, in Configuration, Check reset after success and then click start.
Turn on the Android tv box in Recovery mode and connect the USB cable to your computer.
The end! I would be happy if this will help you.

So if I understood this correctly, I am going to need a USB-A cable connecting from my computer to the box (USB-A to USB-A)? The firmware  can't be installed any other way? I don't have a USB-A to USB-A cable and if there's another way without purchasing one I'm interested in knowing how. Smile

You can to Upgrading the box via SD card. On the firmware folder there is folder called "Tool_SD" (there are instructions).
