    I will have to check which one I actually used. I tried so many unsuccessful ones then finally one worked. The info is on my laptop . As soon as I can get to it I'll check. I used the SD card method

      Ok I used the sd card method with the toothpick reset. The file I got was from Entertainmentbox.com latest m8s. I had to give it a couple of trys and it went from no lights seemingly dead to working. hope it works for you too.

        Thanks for getting back to me. I will try a couple and hopefully one will work. I have a bad feeling I won't have any luck because I flashed over my boot/recovery so the box only seems to allow 1 specific ROM to run because the bootloader is compatible with it.

        But I will give it a try and hope for the best. Only question is, do you recall if your board had this printed on it? M9&M8_8bit_V1.1 2015/09/02 I just want to make sure I don't flash the wrong thing and brick it for good.

          Mine says M8 V 8_9. I tried lots of files until one finally worked. Luckily I didn't brick it for good because I had no idea what I was doing until coming here and doing a lot of reading.

                        I wrote an email to the seller of my M8S+.They want to help me and test the newest software with the Box.So you can try to contact the seller or the brand of your box.

                          First of all - thanks to hipisxbit for his help.

                          I have successfuly recovered my OTT TV BOX M8S. Firmware, that I tried to flash via USB Burning Tool was incorrect. For other people, who has bricked that device: if USB Burning Tool is recognizing device, there is no need to do anything with NAND pins nor OTG jumper (if You have one). Proper *.img file for USB Burning Tool is essential. If you have incorrect file, there will be errors like I described in the first post.

                          For my device proper img file I found on baido. Downloading was pain in the ass, so I created a mirror for future use (maybe someone will need that file):

                          https://mega.nz/#!1Fw1Ta5a!0kpwpqjiY...Q-B09FRcGrsAHY

                          File Name: cyx_m8s_v8.6_ap6330_8g2g_kodi_addons_ota_150908_US B.img

                          I suppose, that this device has been manufactured by cyx (or cyxtech). I recognized valid file by "V8.6" label on device PCB silkscreen and "V8.6" inside the file name. Also WIFI module (AP6330) was the same.

                          I flashed device with power plug connected (without it USB Burning Tool (and Windows) did not recognized device). After "Start" button was clicked, my device restarted once after 6% or something like that, and after two minutes of progress I saw "Burning successfully" message. Device is fully functional. Happy end.

                          Greetings from Poland!

                            You saved my box. Than you.
                            I had the M8S.AP6330.201509251800 firmware on my box, tryed to update but it was briked, now it works again.
                            Same board as you M8 V8_6
                            Do you know if there is any other firmware working on this device? I'm searching for a newer version or better a 5 lollipop one. Does not mind if ethernet does not work.

                            Thank you!

                              A little update, the cyx_m8s_v8.6_AP6330_8g2g_kodi_addons_160526_USB_.i mg firmware comes with kodi 16.1 and works slighly better then the cyx_m8s_v8.6_ap6330_8g2g_kodi_addons_ota_150908_US B.img, the latest one sometimes freeze the device.
