    TWRP

    Just a newbie here...I have no idea, what i was doing except following your posts. my mk808b+ is updated using TWRP. now when i rebooted, it is back at twrp...not sure what i am doing wrong? all i want to update rom and install Kodi...Can bob or someone else help me (but remember i am not expert like you guys) pretty please...
    I first booted into recovery and did a factory reset. I then ran his .zip from SD card. This installed 1.1. The only point that I was making was that Bob's ROM loads TWRP on booting into recovery. I have not had to use TWRP to recover anything. I find it is a reasonable place to leave the mk800b+ in limbo when I am not using it. Bob's 1.1 is an excellent ROM. Read his readme file and follow his instructions. You will be fine.

      For those with audio problems using mele f10 pro, try install the app from play store soundabout. There you can choose which audio out you want.

        please forgive me for very basic questions - I tried all methods, but finally my stick got worked with option-4 from bob's instruction. I booted into TWRP and upgraded rom with successfully to 1.1.

        My questions:

        1. After reboot, i still see TWRP screen, how to install kodi ?
        2. After reboot if sdcard is still inserted, it goes to reset screen - (option to reboot or update from ...)

        Can someone please guide me as i already spent several hours without clue/success. Thanks in advance

            I 'fixed' it. It's no longer stuck in reset. I may or may not have voided the warranty in the process :-(
            Hey i am stuck in same situation - can you help me 'fix' the stuck reset button. i used thumb pin to reset, maybe i did something hard

                It sounds like the same problem. After the ROM flashes successfully it should boot into the android menu.

                The reset button is a micro-switch attached to the motherboard. If you push it with a toothpick, you should here a little click or at least feel it pushing down and back up when you release. If you pushed too hard it may have got jammed.

                It sounds like the other guy cracked open his case and "unstuck" the micro-switch. That's why he says "i may have voided my warranty". If you are not comfortable doctoring micro-electronics I guess you could just try to RMA the thing.

                If it were me...I'd crack open the case on the $50 device...just for the excitement, rather than figure out how to send it back and get a replacement. But that's just me.

                I have 2 of these things on the way and I plan to flash them with the Openelec which is on another thread here. I have the Openelec ROM running on MXIII and Gigabyte BRIX. Also have MXQ and the MK808B plus to try.

                        Finally received my MK809 Plus, works well, I even tried Finless 1.1, also works, I actually think its picture is sharper, but I noticed the Blue LED light disappeared with Finless, as soon as I installed the stock rom Blue led is back, also does anyone know where the recovery button is???
                        Overall and for the price I like that dongle. only issue is knowing when its off without light also reset button.

There are a lot of different devices out there. The default config for the odroid c-1, another m805 based board did not include very many peripherals. I succeeded in compiling and installing the kernel module hid-microsoft.ko, I haven't tried any of the other dozens of modules that I compiled at the same time. (I used insmod to install it with finless 1.1 ROM.) I have not yet found a way to get the install to be automatic at boot. Editing the init.*.rc files was not effective, but at least it didn't hurt anything.
                          (used the kernel sources and tool chain at the http://openlinux.amlogic.com/ site.)

                          Please, can you tell me where the kernel sources are? I only see a 2.6 sources, but finless 1.1 has 3.10.33 kernel.

                          I think stock 109 kernel is too limited device support. For example, my usb wireless doesnt work because it needs the hid-sunplus.ko.

                          Regards.
