The manufacturer has a website in Chinese only, but I could find a page on Baidu where they share diverse firmware, tools, and APK for their devices. So it’s possible the firmware for the Ruach A20 device mentioned in this post is available for download, but bear in mind their are other boxes called “A20” on the company website, so make sure it’s the proper firmware if you ever plan, or have, to update.
I’ve tried to double check the price on Taobao, and I could not find this exact model, but the other Ruach A20 model sells for as low as 189 RMB (~$30 USD) with 4GB flash and 512 MB RAM.
