  9. Hi, I didn’t have a chip with that image on it so I used the MXQ_4K_2017 and the burn tool. Had to change license, un-tick one of the boxes to get past USB issue, work around error at 94% issue and then the burn completed. I disconnected it and then pressed stop. Now it won’t go at all. No led lights. Tried to reconnect to PC but gets stopped on USB issue at 2%. Is the unit now completely broken, or can it be saved. Thanks

  11. Hello. I have a MXQPRO which has a rockchip in it, a RK3228A. I have lifted the mobo and heatsink to check but cannot see an image attachment on here Is anyone please able to help me root this box. It’s currently running out the box fimware, 7.1 android. It’s a bare minimal box with 1GB ram and 8GB storage. I’m wondering if I can do anything fancy with it. I’d like it rooted, TWRP possibly and another faster, possibly better ROM on it.

Hola dario soy Américo, te felicito por tus pasibles y dedicadas explicaciones, yo tengo una caja mxq pro 4g año 2018, q dejó de encender, trató de enviarte foto placa, no se cual programa reinstalar para restaurar, ya use boton en AV, y no arranco…. seguí tus videos y creo debo reinstalar todo, para mi chip q programa debo de usar? Gracias x tu respuesta

    1. My mxq stopped working the reset button so I ignored the error and bootloader and took the cable and relocated without stopping or closing the program for my surprise started the transfer process and concluded, now I have a functional and rooted tvbox I’m very happy 😜😁😁

    Good Day
    I have also an MXQ 4k , i have tried ur tutorial but the box is not being detected on my laptop when i run the usb burning tool using the img file. Its MXQ-4k 1G + 8G. Keeping my finger crossed that you might be able to tell me any solution.

    1. You should install the drivers and connect to the usb port on the back of the CPU and usb on the back of the tvbox just so the PC recognizes.😸

  21. i’ve done all the above instructions
    burning tool loaded with the image (correct version MXQPro 4K 1and8GB
    reset pin and USB cable connected (without the power supply)
    burning tool detects the USB device “connect successful”
    after 17 sequence in the recovery mode, somehow the connection get’s lost and stops the recovery process

    anyone have any idea why and what to do?

    please and thank you

  22. It’s always such a pleasure to read articles created by real professionals.
    I’m fed up with all that no-name, ghostwritten articles.
    That’s why it was so pleasant to look at a compelling piece.
    I see the writer has ground knowledge it the subject as well as some
    practical expertise. This sort of information is more precious than copypasted blog articles ideas.

  23. The article reveals some burning issues and questions which needs to be discussed
    and explained. Furthermore, it’s crucial to grasp within the detail.
    In the article, one can easily locate something basic,
    remarkably for him, something that may be extremely useful.
    I am thrilled with the data that I have just got.
    Thanks a lot!

    This keeps turning off my computer instantly when I connect the USB. So I am able to fix my box because my computer won’t stay on! My box will not load up. Blue light comes on but never shows a logo or connects to the tv.

  25. Hi Dario,

    I have a MXQ Pro box with version 5.1.1, I’ve loaded the APP ES File Explorer and manager but cannot seem to get to the root directory of the box to see files. In the ES APP, I can’t seem to find the allow ROOT to be visible enable button. The remote is not working properly and I’m trying to follow instruction on changing the remote config file but can’t because I cannot even see the ECT directory where the existing file needs to be deleted and changed to one of the other remote files to try. Can you help me out at all? I do have QuickSupport on the box but understand if you don’t do this kind of support. I find it easier to FTP from my computer into the box and delete the remote file that way and copy the new config file but I have the same issue on the computer, I cannot see any root files or folder on the box! THANKS
