Diyomate A6 TV BOX: 45 USD Android 4.0 Networked Media Player Based on Telechips TCC8920

Diyomate A6 TV BOX is a networked media player running Android 4.0 (ICS) and powered by Cortex A5 Telechips TCC8620 processor, and the company – Diyomate Electronic Technology –  is showcasing their new device at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair on April 13 – 16, 2012.

Android 4.0 Telechips TCC 8925 (Cortex A5) Set-top box

Diyomate A6 Network Media Player

Here are the specifications of this set-top box:

  • CPU – ARM Cortex A5 Telechips TCC8925 TCC8920 with Mali 400 GPU
  • System Memory – 1 GB DDR3
  • Video Codecs – H.264, VC1, ASP, DivX 3.x for 720p, 1080i and 1080p resolutions.

You can watch the video below to learn more about Diyomate A6 TV BOX.

Diyomate A6 TV BOX set-top box should be available in May and cost 45 USD (MOQ: 1000). So I suppose the retail price should be around or below 90 USD.

There is no product page for the A6 yet, but in time, you may get more information on Diyomate website. You can find more information on Diyomate A6 page.

    The actual box for retail sales is based on TCC8920 and don’t support google services (don’t let to add google account), don run HD videos (some player run it but without audio), not rooted. And I don’t think any developer is working on this chip for ROMs etc.

    @ Y S
    Thanks for the update.

    You’re right, it’s quite difficult to get the kernel and other GPL software source from Telechips or their customers, so it’s unlikely work will be done on this box. I’ve started asking code for TCC8925 (which should be similar to TCC8920) since I’ve purchased a device, but I don’t hold my breath.

    I managed to get updated ROM (update.zip) for it from manufacturer, but it still have all above problems. If you think it helps you contact me.

    Already found it in the menu. When will it be possible to root the box, and when will there be a CWM?

    @ gerrit
    I don’t know if there is work done on this box.
    As for rooting the device, you could try the instructions for CX-01 (http://www.pandawillforum.com/showthread.php?11641-New-Arrival-CX-01-Mini-Android-TV-Box-Android-4-0-Cortex-A5-HDMI-USB-4GB&p=68126&viewfull=1#post68126) which is based on a similar processor.

    Good day to All.
    I have the same device. Do you know what ADB password for setting USB debuging mode?
    Thanks an advance.

    Hi
    To root, i need to enable USB debugging – but this option seems to be password protected?
    Any idea on the password, or any other otion to enable USB debugging?

    @cnxsoft
    Hi, any developments yet? ADB password would be fine!

    @gerrit
    I don’t have this device, so I’m not sure. I assume some of the instructions for CX-01 should work on that one.

    i am trying to root this device, but i cannot enable ADB debugging, it asks for a password. what is the password? why put a password on it?

    @peter brown
    You’ve got the same problem as everybody on this thread and XDA forums. Unfortunately, it seems nobody has been able to get the password yet.

    USB debugging can *only* be used by connecting USB to the USB port INSIDE the A6. The screws to open the case are under the 4 little plastic knobs on the bottom. The password (if needed) is 123456, 1234567, or 12345678. Just try. Password may be not needed! Some tweaks and root is possible with files from tatubias. I will upload them yo my dropbox, together with a few needed drivers and tools. Unfortunatly I do not have a WIFI module inside my box and Therefore also no working Market. I have read you hace to connect (first time) to your Google account by WIFI to get Play store working.

    BTW Do not use flash tool FWDN, only use the needed file to install the drivers, which are also in the zip
