    Bricked M8S+

    Hello, I have bricked M8S+ (wrong Openelec) and now no sign of life on it (LED is dead). I have ap6330 wifi.
    Please, which recovery firmware I need and what method to use?

    Thanks in advance!

        1) method with SD card - no sign of life
        2) method with USB tool: Box recognized, but whatever I do it stops at 2%. Image used: "M8S+ 4.4 0713 USB Burning" and "M8S+ USB 20160115 burn(android5.1)"

        I also tried all images I could find... still I have a completely dead chinese piece of shit! got darn!

                First of all - give us PCB photos (both sides). There are dozens of clones. Sometimes one firmware will be ok, sometimes other. I had the same problem as you are (you can read all my posts), but on different device (M8S (without +)).

                    Here's my PCB:




                    There is: M9&M8_8bit_V1.1 2015/09/2 and M8+20160126-V13 sign on the board

                    Justme, could you give me link to that specific firmware which should work?

                      This is for M8S (not M8S+), but You should try:

                        Ok,

                        1. I downgraded burntool to v2.0.5.15 build9.
                        2. Connect success
                        3. Tried with
                        suggested "cyx_m8s_v8.6_ap6330_8g2g_kodi_addons_ota_1509 08_U SB" - stopped at 3% ([0x10105002]Romcode/Initialize DDR/Read initialize status/USB Control setup error)
                        4. Tried with "M8S+ USB 20160115 burn(android5.1)" - stopped at 2% (the same message)
                        5. Tried with "M8S+ 4.4 0713 USB Burning" - stopped at 2% (the same message)
                        6. Tried with "PROBOX2-EX_20150801" - stopped at 2% (the same message)
                        7. Tried with JustME "aml_upgrade_package_s802_2GB.img" - stopped at 2% (the same message)

                        At the moment I'm totally frustrated with this freaking machine , so, PLEASE HELP, if anyone has any other idea, I'm fully open!


                        EDIT: I tried with SD card method. With and without pressing the switch in AV port. Dead! Dead as brick!

                          I think I'm totally unlucky... a man from russian forum is looking for the same recovery image as I do, but without success... I contact acemax, we'll see if they have some special image for my box.

                          EDIT: Acemax responded that this is not their device!

                          Who else is manufacturing M8S+?

                              So I suppose it's not possible to repair it, nor to put openelec on it?
