VideoStrong has become popular among people wanting an Android TV box with a tuner thanks to their affordable and customizable products such as K1 Plus T2 S2, or KIII Pro coming with DVB-T/T2 and DVB-S/S2 tuners. AFAIK, all there products so far came with a single demodulator meaning you could watch or record satellite or terrestrial TV, but not do both at the same time, for example watching a channel via DVB-S2, and recording one via DVB-T2. Amlogic S905D is supposed to support this, and upcoming products like Sen5 Android set-top box do come with two demodulators. Mecool KI PRO – based on the processor – has just been launched, pre-selling for $79.99 on Banggood with shipping scheduled for mid May.
- SoC – Amlogic S905D quad core ARM Cortex-A53 @ up to 1.5 GHz with Mali-450MP GPU
- System Memory – 2 GB DDR4
- Storage – 16GB eMMC flash + micro SD card slot up to 32GB
- Video Output – HDMI 2.0a up to 4K @ 60Hz with support for HDR10 and HLG, and 3.5mm AV
(composite video) jack
- Audio Output – HDMI, AV (stereo audio), optical S/PDIF
- Video Codecs – 10-bit H.265, and VP9 Profile 2 up to 4K60, H.264 up to 4K30, AVS+ and other codecs up to 1080p60
- Tuner – DVB-T/T2 and DVB-S/S2 tuners with two connectors
- Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet, dual band 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.1 LE
- USB – 4x USB 2.0 host ports
- Misc – Power button and LED, IR receiver
- Power Supply – DC 12V/1A
- Dimensions – 130 x 120 x 32 mm
- Weight – 163 grams
Another advantage of the device is that it runs the latest Android 7.1 operating system. The interface looks the same as with older devices, so I’d expect the same DTV app to be used in the box. KI Pro ships with a HDMI cable, a remote control, a power adapter, and a user manual. You may be able to find (more or less accurate) details on the manufacturer’s page.
Thanks to Natsu for the tip.
Jean-Luc started CNX Software in 2010 as a part-time endeavor, before quitting his job as a software engineering manager, and starting to write daily news, and reviews full time later in 2011.
On vídeo strong page it also shows some dvb-c and dvb-c + dvb-s2 combo.
But i cant find those on any site.
Also dvb-t2 specs meets all the information and reqs for dvb-c. Does anyone know if that dvb-t2 does work with C (cable)?
On previous Unit here at cnx i saw some posts about dvb-c improve on newer app dtv on Android and tvheadend while in libreelec.
Any clue about this?
@Ygor Almeida and @cnx
There is the latest DVB apk with support for DVB-C included.
It is coming straight from VS engineers
Hmm, do these things do ‘freesat’ properly? I’ve had one TV with a DVB-S2 but no freesat and it picked up every channel without prioritising my local broadcasts, e.g. Russia Today was channel 1, not say BBC 1.
In fact when you scan it follows sat order. And you can edit and sort channels by your self. But some pids change and etc. FTA channels are like this.
without native linux DVB drivers compiled for Android 7.1 as a generic option, and only a single app that talks the closed API in that DTV app… then it’s not going to sell on mass for use with the many 3rd party linux DVB apps and transcoders, streamers etc…
Except when I got a “proper box” later it had the localisation thing sorted, physically local channels appeared earlier in the list. That’s probably only possible with an online service for assistance. So do these boxes have access to one?
There is a box on ebay uk claiming freesat in name but what it actually does who knows. It also runs Android 6.0
Freesat GTT DVB-T2 Android 6.0 Amlogic S905D 1G+8G Wifi 1080P Signal Receiver
Is there a variant of this box that works with dvb-c? If so where/how can i order one?
Imo this box is pretty ok price / performance wise
Freesat is the trademark of a joint venture between the BBC and ITV and, as such, will probably not be available on these type of boxes. I have just set up (I was too lazy to bother before) a Wetek Openelec box running Tvheadend to show what appear to be the Freesat channels. EPG now starts on BBC 1 and runs through the UK channels in what appears to be a logical manner. http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=217719 This is for Tvheadend running as a backend and Kodi as the frontend. I have no idea what the boxes above will be running so this… Read more »
@CampGareth “Hmm, do these things do ‘freesat’ properly?” Freesat is a proprietary service using a proprietary EPG. so why do you expect a device which is not a licensed “Freesat” box to do “freeat properly”? As with all “free-to-air” (non-proprietary) boxes, you need to do a scan and then edit the resulting services according to your own preferences, or in the same order as the Freesat EPG if you feel compelled to conform to the dictat of the Freesat consortium. This may be inconvenient but the huge advantage is that you will be able to see all the extra free… Read more »
Power Supply – DC 12V/12A ?
Freesat uses a proprietary EPG (and has lots of bouquets so that different areas get the right regional versions of channels on the right EPG channel number) It uses proprietary Huffman compression to carry EPG data. (As does Freeview HD – but not SD)
It IS reverse engineered (TV Headend supports it) – but i suspect selling products with support for it could be legally dubious, and is only relevant to the UK market.
My guess is that Wetek Play 3 would use S905D.
It’ll be commercial within a few months.
@Ron, from where did you get this info? Did Wetek3 will have Audiosound passthrough? Oherwise I will buy this cheaper Mecool…
As I wrote – this is MY GUESS.
It’s very probable. I don’t see why not!
To be more precise, , it’s rather logical to assume that it would have S905D-H (with HDCP for Netflix etc).
All these Single Tuner Boxes are pretty useless as Networked PVR setups for a Home TV viewing Network.
There simply are too many limitations when it comes to Recording and watching TV using a Single Tuner if you are using Multiple TV viewing clients at the same time.
Cheap USB Dual Tuner PVR networked setups using LibreELEC Kodi media builds (backported DVB drivers), are now very do-able on stock standard AMLogic S905(x) Hardware.
Seems this box got DRM for Level1 widevine and mostlikely in few days will have the netflix HD app running HD content
Good news. I guess it’s not with the default Netflix app, but the modified one so people can watch 720p Netflix.
Problem with gamepad Works well with k2 pro
As for k1 pro did not work problem driver
How to add it ?
Is there a new software ?
KI PRO is: Android 7.1, DVB-T2+S2 +C,
already got DRM widevine level 1,
and have HDCP
Anyone have this tv box for confirm that this information is true?
Where is the software android 7.1 ?
my box k1 pro android 6.0.1 !!!
What tuner is inside?
dvb s2 t2
yes, the first version is Android 6.0, now have updated to Android 7.1, and with DVB C
Miranda Chen works for Videostrong, so it’s true.
Now that does not mean, if you buy a KI Pro on the web today, it will have Widevine L1 and/or HDCP. Better wait to make sure those are standard features, since they cannot be added by software update.
im testing the nougat version for k1 pro and seems to work very nice.Waiting on Netflix HD app … VS engineers working hard to achieve it.
If I order one now, will I receive Android 6.0 or 7.1 model?
Can Android 6.0 model be updated to 7.1 and activated to DRM widevine level 1?
Yes you can update to android 7.1.1 with DRM widevine level 1.
You will need an USB to USB father – father cable and the amlogic burning tools
While upgrading firmware from Android 6.0 to Android 7.1 should not be a problem, I’ve been told (for other devices) that things like DRM and HDCP keys had to be set at the factory, and no firmware update would fix that.
If blackie is getting an earlier KI Pro without DRM, will he be able to update to DRM with Widevine Level 1?
Can be that the DRM keys are already included in the boxes available for pre-sale?
Or we have to wait until some “final revision of box” with DRM keys is released?
Does anybody know the answer or can some box owner check the DRM status with “DRM Info” application from Google Playstore?

Does the box work well? Any fault?
Image quality satellite channels?
Cccam emulator works stable?
Audio ac3 works?
Where can i buy the new version (with Android 7.1, DVB-T2+S2 +C and DRM widevine level 1) of this tv box?
@Jean-Luc Aufranc (CNXSoft)
Thank you for your hard work 🙂 Maybe you can review this tv box too?
TBH, I’m a bit bored with TV box reviews, especially tuner ones, as I reviewed 3 in the last few months, and the last one (U5PVR) is causing me some troubles due to issues in the first firmware that wasted a lot of my time.
But if somebody is interested in getting a free KI Pro sample, in exchange of doing a review on CNX. I’m all for it. Preferably somebody with a motorized satellite dish setup since I’ve never done that.
Dear Miranda, is the version supporting DRM L1 already on sale somewhere?
It seems that first batch of Android 7.1 boxes selling on Banggood doesn’t support Widevine L1 yet…
According to status of “DRM info” application from box owner here: https://forum.libreelec.tv/thread/2722-8-0-2a-libreelec-8-0-builds-for-ki-plus-kii-pro-ki-pro/?postID=51319#post51319
Interesting. I want to know too
i’ve just seen this interesting box with Amlogic S905D.
i’d like to really check if the DTS HW decoding feature is there. anyone knows?
is the offering for a free sample to be tested still available? i have some knowledge about digital television, some spare time and a motorized dish too..
BTW i’m italian, so some kind of proofreading would be needed, eventually..
@Jean-Luc Aufranc (CNXSoft)
This does NOT mean Widevine Level 1 DRM support. And I doubt this box will ever have it either.
And I seriously doubt HDCP will ever come with these cheap boxes – that costs money and the profit margins on this type of hardware do not justify it.
Be aware those looking for 1080p Netflix – there is no way it will work on this box. You need actual Netflix Hardware Approval and I’ve never seen Cheap Chinese sourced AMLogic boxes come with Netflix approval.
yes, Android 6.0 update to Android 7.1, need to use USB to USB father – father cable and the amlogic burning tools
New KI PRO is with widevine level3& level 1, comes with HDCP key and HDCP key burned at factory,
They are producing now, haven’t on sale somewhere, will come soon…
I receive my KI Pro from Banggood with firmware 7.1.1 (NMF26Q.20170510.173954.V0321) on board – it have HDCP keys in box?
And thank’s Videostrong for fast support, i receive by my request latest KI_PRO_AVL6862-ota-20170519.183520.V0321 for recovery (https://yadi.sk/d/WRzrVAlf3K4xwu)
Hi, Miranda Chen
We would like you to let us know here when these new boxes are on sale. Do you have an approximate date?
Also how can we differentiate the new ones with level 1 from the old ones to level 3
@namecito There is an flash sale on gearbest for this box happening now  but not much of an discount if compared to the price ( $80 ) posted here in early May ( would have expected $60 to be a flash price ) and similar price on the device on geekbying as well . There is also a youtube review here  but not a teardown which might have highlighted if the device had to be so bulky in design ( too bulky for my taste to have in the living room compared to other tv boxes slick design… Read more »
But does have gearbest box level 1?
Hi, I think your box didn’t support HDCP, when it’s ready, I will publish here 🙂
Hi, I think this two weeks the last software will be ready, to differentiate the new ones with level 1 from the old ones to level 3 could check the sw version, the new last sw will be June, not May.
Then same hardware but different firmware? The same version of hardware board?
So, Can I buy now and upgrade with the new firmware to have it?
Can someone please give a link to the TWRP 184.108.40.206 found in https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=827387&st=80
TWRP (S905D) KI Pro DVB-S2/T2/C
thanks,please give a link to tiartop_dtv.zip
Garik big thanks 😉
you have got to run tiartop DTV ?
tiartop DTV, It works but the screen is black.
tiartop DTV, It works well on the Marshmallow 6.0.1
@Jean-Luc Aufranc (CNXSoft)
I think Widevine Level L1 would receive 1080p video, wouldn’t it? Obviously no 4k. If you need more than L1 to get 1080p netflix, I would abandon that service and learn how to obtain the content yourself. We’ll be waiting decades before something comes out that’s actually compatible lol
@Jean-Luc Aufranc (CNXSoft)
That is ENTIRELY correct. The only exception seems to be Widevine L3 (which can be done with software). But that doesn’t get you very far with Netflix lol.
It’s one of the first Amlogic 7.1 releases…. so the answer to all of your questions will be “likely not”
It took well over a year for Lollipop to become partially stable. Marshmallow still isn’t as stable as Lollipop and it’s been out a while. I feel so bad when people are “early adopters’ – it makes me cringe.
Everyone, do yourself a favor and WAIT for the updates to start. Have any of you had NEW s905 or s905x devices when they first came out? They SUCKED. The firmware was slapped together in such a messy fashion, it was absolutely embarrassing. They rush these things to the market, hoping to sucker as many people in as possible due to the “perceived upgrade” of the OS.
It took well over a year for AML Lollipop to be half stable, why would this be any different folks? You do NOT want to be a beta tester.
HERE IS A CUSTOM ROM made by Superceleron. He makes AMAZING roms for so many different devices. Expect an “Android TV” build in the near future. This will likely work much better than the stock buggy rom:
@Justin It’s a bit more complicated than that. I wrote about it @ http://www.cnx-software.com/2015/12/30/why-doesnt-your-android-tv-box-play-full-hd-or-4k-videos-in-netflix/ and then http://www.cnx-software.com/2016/11/28/how-to-play-netflix-hd-on-any-android-device-with-widevine-level-1-drm/ So it looks like you can use Netflix up to 480p on pretty much any Android devices, even without Widevine Level 3. Widevine Level 1 is necessary for 720p, 1080p and 4K, but not sufficient. The hack in the second link should allow you to watch Netflix @ 720p (HD), but if you want 1080p or 4K, the hack won’t do, and you need certifications from Netflix. You must be able to prove sales of a large number of TV boxes in the… Read more »
Thx for clearing this up. Again… 😉 The whole “all I need is Widevine L1” to get 1080p Netflix is one of the biggest B.S. misinformation campaigns you see bouncing around the internet. What is also going on now is the Google Playstore will not even let you install any Netflix App without media player Hardware also being “Netflix Certified”. Watch out if the device is rooted as well. Once you have “Netflix hardware certification” even 4K Netflix is possible on regular tablet Android using the 4K capable Android TV Netflix App. The only Android Tablet OS devices where that… Read more »

@Jean-Luc Aufranc (CNXSoft)
This update not solve dtv delay audio
Dtv audio delay??? But, if this problem already had the KII pro. Are we still like this?. So let’s go bad.
KI pro bricked (crashes when trying to install fw via sdcard).
Does not work RESET BOX button.
How to unlock it?
set power button
Press reset button for 30 sg. Before introducing male-to-male usb
@Garik It is not the same usb port on KIII pro as on KI pro. When you have the USB side in front of you, the two on the left side and then the one closest to the bottom.
Thank you for your help.
Optimized synchronize problem of audio and video.
thanks Videostrong Technology !
I updated the fw KI_PRO_AVL6862-ota-20170713.0953
30.V0321 and continuous with the problems of audio and video synchronization.
It does not work.
Hola cataplas he cambiado la salida del audio a pcm y parece que va perfecto
Hello i change audio Out to auto a pcm and i think work perfect
I have all ok !
I update and Dont work audio – vídeo sync for me when pass 3-5 minutes noise audio and start delay. Garik do you have hard reset on this update?? How to configure dvb s2

How are the ac3 channels? Tve1, etc? audio ok?
sorry,I’m not good at this
Yes delay in ac3 channels only try in SAT channels
I remember reading in some place that 3 lines maximum because it is blocked.
Then, only problem on AC3 channels and Sat. How many Ac3 channels are there?
Only 2 lines
But how many channels fail 1, 2 or 20? And ,What channels are they? which?
@Antoniokizito.Do I just can add 2 lines?? i have add more, maybe 6 lines, but im not sure if all lines connectted to server.
But I remeber have saw at least 3 lines conntected.
kernel 4.12 ,Will be issued new softwer ?
For when the audio-video synchronization?
Is very annoying.
Known only to God )))
Where did u find the firmware?
I saw the firmware from 13th of July, fix audio-video synchronization up to 95% but not full.
I have to try this new firmware, i have the old one from may/Jun and i have synchronization problems too.
I hope a new firmware versión comes soon to fix it at 100%.
videostrong sent,promised a new hotfix.
New update , i cant try at now , but fix it improve dtv,kodi 17.3,and kodi addon,some program EPG problem
i install this night
@Antonio Gomez Leal
Just got the email too. Exact changelog I got:
So hopefully it has fixed the sync issues you guys have.
@Jean-Luc Aufranc (CNXSoft)
have you tried it?
file dtb.img. How to install this?
@Antonio Gomez Leal
I don’t own the box.
You should probably just copy all files on a USB stick, and do the update normally.
Hola, según AndroidPc:

ota update works
update via OTA.
Very very low sound from CVBS/L/R connector.
I wear earphones.
Well, for me in cable the box on dvb-c doesn’t tune to frequencies that end in *500Khz. Also doesn’t get channel name of scrambled channels and doesn’t descramble them with cccam.
I’m running latest version 20170725.
Another problem is that on Sat doesn’t have the sattelites that are West, only East. So you have to put transponders by yourself.
I was thinking to buy this box because of 905d and android 7.1 .
There is a coupon in banggood (20TVBrand) that reduces the price close to 55€ but I see there’s a lot of problems.
What else we can buy exept the kii pro?
Good price. Any offernow?
Can anyone please tell me does this box support conax cas7 in dvb-c ?
How To Move Apps To An SD Card ?
two questions to everyone who is using this box:
In my country (Italy) actually there are a couple of sat channels 4k HDR-HLG (scrambled or not). I would like to know if connecting this box to a tv 4k HDR (but not HLG) it is possible to see this channels in HDR mode (it should pop up “HDR” tooltip).
The second question is about youtube. Does anyone tested video samples 4k HDR? My tv (LG uh770v) has youtube app but does not support HDR (again, does not popup “HDR” message on start playing video).
Thank you all.
are the audio synch problems disappear after the latest firmware update?
No, and no answer from videostrong, buy another one.
who is the news ? what fix??
I am so sorry. The current software didn’t solve the problem completely.
It takes few days for the new software.
Thanks for understanding.
“Cyrus Wang :<[email protected]
I made wrong, I bought the ki pro.
Never again products from “videostrong”
Ota never work, so so heat compared to others, difficult to find firmware from them and now this with the ki pro.
Any offer for this? Thanks
I read in another forum …
“After the update I only have DRM L3 instead of L1. Can anyone check this? “
is this a fix? from who?
how I will install it?
Is there any repository to get the updates (nightly) for KI pro?
? everything is nightly and is difficult to find.
I do not think videostong have a working download section.
… is so difficult…
I am impressed!
there is a download for “ki pro” in videostrong site.
the last time I have checked for 2 other products I couldn’t find.
I will try to install the last firmware.
Do you watch channels in HD quality with the cccam emulator?
the box it is not root.
is it easy to root it?
After can we get Ota updates if they appear without problem?
Latest version fixes the dvb-c tuning to *500hz frequencies with SR6000, however the scan doesn’t get all channels on all transponders, there are a number of transponders where the scan only finds the first 2 or 3 channels, missing a number of them afterwards…
The accented characters continue to appear wrong.
what is the latest version and from where?
Answering to myself. The missing channels are the payed ppv ones. It is only scanning for the free to air
what firmware is this, is it from videostrong ?
how did you find it?
Until now i have no answer from videostrong ..
politely asked, the sound is fixed !!!
i do not understand.
nice about the sound but who make tje firmware and from were?
you emailed to videostrong, you work for videostrong or you find it in their page?
i do not understand your answers.
in official ki pro page there is a firmware.
if the firmware you provide it is from them why they do not uploaded there?
Especially when the firmware they have there it is a problematic.
He report about bugs via email to videstrong and receive new builds for check.
You can not install this SW, but i’m yesterday install this SW and use it. While no seems desynchronize in DVB-T2, need check more time.
Still no fix for scrambled channels on dvb-c appearing as no name and not working.
Still no fix for accented characters of ISO 8859-1 support on channel names.
I reported them to videostrong, no answer from them.
Hi, i have the last firm from July and i haven´t sincronization problems with HD channels on DVB-S.
Do Anybody know the list of changes from this new September firmware?
Hola, ¿alguien sabe que tiene de nuevo o que corrige este nuevo firmware de Septiembre?
Yo tengo el último de Julio y no tengo errores de sincronización en canales de satelite HD y audio AC3.

Why not “sd update” why not “Ota” ?
They want to make it hard…
@anotherone download OTA update from link above (https://yadi.sk/d/dqsjmKUd3MjmPu)
I have the latest 5-9 but it is not so stable.
The launcher is faulty and the root it gives permission to anything without to ask.
Many times it freezes.
is there a newer?
I do not understand why they did not provide the links in official site like “Beta” and we have to contact them and ask about firmware.
Hi, i have problems with PVR in satellite mode. Sometimes after record tv program I go to pvr settings, record programs, I see the record, but when I play the program there is nothing.
I search for the record files and the .ts, ts1 … .tsXX have size cero. So the last file, for example .ts2 has a size great than cero but i can’t play this file neither.
I have this problem recording programs using the EPG and long programs.
Someone has the same problem?
I have the last firmware from July.
what other options we have with dual tuner or at list with “t2” in a normal price?
Or can we add tuner option by usb somehow to a tv box?
is this possible?
Depends what you call a normal price, but other options include:
Wetek Play 2 – https://www.cnx-software.com/2016/08/19/wetek-play-2-4k-android-set-top-box-with-atsc-dvb-s2-or-dvb-t2-tuners-is-up-for-pre-order-for-120/

Program to manage channels? or where do you list channels astra hispasat Spain?
How is the structure of the line in * .cfg file?
any new firmware?
With link2sd It doesn’t mount the second partition on boot.

Good question :))
the last update i’ve found is KI_PRO_AVL6862-NHG47L-20170905.020920.V0619
and i dowloaded it manually because OTA won’t work on my box.
last official firmware for KI Pro
do you have the basic status bar and notification bar with this just latest update you say?
it is good idea to tell what’s happening and not just say .. “this is the latest update..”
Thanks. Manual update from USB worked fine.
when you say.. worked fine, have you checked if you have STATUS BAR and NOTIFICATION BAR?
I updated and I do not even have the option.
What happend with google play in this version? which version is this? i cannot find any standard app from google play
this is Google ATV firmware. and rooted many apk cant not install from Market.
take look at bulid.prop. cange vlaue of it from 0 to 1 or frrom flase to true
how can i downgrade it? I don’t like ATV and i want the stadard version back.
i suggust you to stay with this last one, as some bugs fixed.. all firmware for this model as others from CN default rooted ..
The main problem is that i cannot find my apps on google play. Is there a way to get “the standard” google play stopre app on ATV firmware?
easy way overwrite this with custom one from Malyic on xda devlopers V 4 from yesterday 7.Dec
i cannot install it because i get verification failed error
look up……here in this forum ” pk ” listed link firmware its non ATV use USB burning tool for Amlogic to flash it on the box
or just use root explorer to delete the atv store apk and put from other firm ware the one you use
thank you 🙂 i will follow your instructions and let you know if it worked.
none of those two sollutions worked for me.
I’ve got the KI_PRO_AVL6862-NHG47L-20170905.020920.V0619 version back by installing TWRP, run as root, and than flashed the recovery.img from KI_PRO_AVL6862-NHG47L-20170905.020920.V0619.
After that, i have rebooted to recovery and i was able to flash KI_PRO_AVL6862-NHG47L-20170905.020920.V0619
I still have one problem, maybe can someone help me….
I have a problem with youtube, i update youtube but nothing happends because on the laucher is an icon to the old youtube version.
If i completly uninstall youtube and reinstall it from google play, it will not creata a shortcut on the laucher and i can only lauch youtube from the apps in the settings menu.
Do you know how to fix this?
Does anybody have Skype worked well on this device? My attemps to force it to work have failed: I don’t hear a voice from the other side.
The display is attractive and does better yet my problem with it is: I connect my satellite to it and when I do not have transponder channels picked yet – When I tried to fix the errors in the list it makes the mistakes that one channel is duplicated when it is not yet allows a duplicate of another channel that I must remove.
Hello What’s the difference between the version with android 6.0 and the version with android 7.1?
is there any new “official” firmware?
I installed many Netflix modified versions so I can see in 720p
The problem is that with every version I tried the video it is not so smooth
it loses frames and looks like the box finds it difficult.
For sure it is not problem with the internet, I have only for me a 50/5 vdsl connected with 5GHz or cable, so i thought that was because of the “high” temperature of the box so I installed a 12″ fun but even if I had 55-65 degrees the problem persists.
But THIS WILL DELETE ALL YOUR DATA…

BRICKED KI PRO – I need help
I would like to know if to use UART and if it works in my KI pro box.
I have tried all the techniques with burn card maker / Usb Burning Tool and nothing. (I think it’s full bricked)
The button is always blue and nothing on the tv.
If they had another solution to unbricked?
Thank you all
1. I’ve never got KI Pro, but KIII Pro has a UART connection on the top left ->
So if you want to see if there’s anything there, simply connect a USB to TTL board.
2. In the past, I’ve seen people enter boot ROM by shorting pins on the eMMC/NAND flash, so maybe you should do some research about this. I thought it was not necessary with the recovery button found in most devices now, but maybe I’m wrong.
which pins should be shorted?
Does anyone have the KI Pro mainboard photos?
Because I can not open my box yet, it’s still under warranty.
If I have the photos I can search on the components to try to see which are the possibilities of unbricked this box.
Thank you all
PS- CNXSOFT Thank you for your answer
@mecooljaime i would never believe Amlogic CPU GPU would be brick at any case as they have the level of boot loader which you can turn the KI or other to download mode as USB burning Tool. you have Blue LED ON and then nothings.. 2 only possible 1- you had wrong firmware flashed or you had firmware from Vitmode. which its very harmful to NAND and GPU. or yours box didn’t switched to download mode via the toothpick , because the mico switched was broken maybe from many time to hard push. the only way you should open the… Read more »
The switch was not broken, i listen the click when i put the toothpick.
(I not the forcing in the switch)

Any news on channel editor for ki pro
any new original firmware?
CNXSoft editing this link-only comment for context: That’s allegedly Android 7.1.2 firmware for the box released on 21.03.2018, and based on Android TV, so no working for all apps..
lame device: accented characters (french, spanish, portuguese) aren’t working
