D3 firmware or other solution
#1
Question 
I seem to be in big trouble with my D3 and I haven't found any solutions so I thought I would add to the very few threads D3 has to itself. Basically I have been having issues installing software because the D3 is rooted. Particularly my primary stream app, Netlfix. I researched the issue and found advice on how to hide sudo in order to install these apps successfully. I worked with rooting Fire TV 2's before so I thought I had what i needed. It was recommended to start with installing SuperSu (which I had past experience). No big deal right? installed successfully and it advised to reboot. I rebooted only to find the D3 at the title screen and hasn't gone passed that since. I unplugged for 30 minutes. No change. Left on for 30 minutes. No change. I went back to the researching and found out how to soft and hard reset. I started with soft reset by clicking reset button in the av port and selecting "wipe data/factory rest" under the Android Recovery and reboot. No change. I did this 4 times with no progress. Next advice I found in my research was to do a hard reset by using the "apply update from EXT" which requires the firmware apparently. I searched every where for the firmware and cannot find it anywhere. Can someone help me find the firmware needed or provide alternate solutions. I promise, I will not do this again! lol. thanks in advance.

Just checking in to see if there is a ready recovery.img  for the D3. I have found some images for A95x-R1 but not sure if it is the right one. I can get to the Android Recovery menu allowing me to update from EXT. please help cause I don't believe I bricked the device and am optimistic for a solution. Thanks!

First of all the most proper way to restore your tv box is via usb flashing...
From the time you don't have the stock firmware things are kind of difficult !
So one solution for this , is to carefully open the casing of your tv box and take pictures of the pcb board and the various chips (processor,wifi,eMMC)
Maybe we will find some similiar firmware to get it alive!

Thanks for the response to my issue. I was able to find the USB-Burning-Tool-2.0.7 and connected successfully with my Windows 10 pc and a USB 3.0 A to A cable. So I think I am close. Here are the pics you requested. Let me know if there is anything further you need for me.

One more thing...
I can't see the chip because of the heatsink
So take a picture the other side of the pcb...
It may have written down the SoC version!

Ok!
Got it!
The bad thing here is that is a very rare to find firmware ,tv box!
It's the new SoC S905W and the tricky here in this tv box is that is 2g-ram/8g-rom while the most of them are either 1/8 or 2/16!!!
Anyway...
Try this one for start : https://onedrive.live.com/?authkey=%21AP...253EA3A2B2
The tutorial video is with a familiar S905X tv box!

I have the d3 as well. After a month it was stuck on logo screen. I tried the usb burn with the v8 wechip posted above. It failed saying uboot partition aml dtb verify partition error result. I also tried the sd card burn method and it failed as well. I tried an ota zip file from another box it almost went through but obviously it was the wrong ota update zip. Im puzzled on why I cant flash the wechip firmware . Why am i getting uboot partition aml dtb verify partition error result?
