    EDIT: If the images appear too small, please view the images from my shared Google Drive folder: https://drive.google.com/folderview?...XYtdVdfWHB5Qms

    I have a Leelbox Q3 That is bricked, I am familiar with the different types of recovery ( SD OR USB Tool ) It seems inside to be like Morty421's box , Im attaching pics. I downloaded this firmware but not tried it yet.
    1. Download this u-boot https://mega.nz/#!nkYEyawZ!D8vrZgrFf...Rj9y9IqCU7qUbw dead link
    2. Download this firmware https://mega.nz/#!NcxQzAxZ!eiWD0Ic2H...NkZ_KG944k_ipc downloaded untried yet

    looking for suggestions and the link to the boot file is dead, can anyone advise and help? , I am fairly new at this but understand pretty well .

    M8s+ (M9&M8_8bit_V1.1 2015/09/2 and M8+20160126-V13) Please help if you can ?

    I've tried the oinly img files that I could find for the s812. The last one I found is what's on the box and as I said 'it just sits at the Amlogic logo for the rest of the day. I figured that if I could short out the required pins on the NAND chip I could flash the correct ones from Chinagadgets, they only have it for SD cards though? That's my problem. I can't get to recovery with the 'toothpick method' in order to flash the Chinagadgets Files and although I've used the USB tool it just leaves me with this damn Amlogic logo????

    If your box is recognizable by USB Burning Tool and it fails to update the firmware you need to get the correct img file for your box. If I were you I'll try to update firmware via USB Burning Tool, not via sd card.

The board has a Samsung KLMBQWEPD B031, which I assume is the NAND. If my assumption is correct, could someone please tell me which pins should be shorted in order for me to apply the correct firmware (which I obtained thanks to this wonderful site) via SD card.
    My grateful thanks in anticipation.
    Please give us some pictures of the PCB.

    Can you share your backup link again? It is not working anymore.

    Did you manage to solve the ethernet problem?
    I 'm having the same problem.
    The more success option for me to get ethernet working in flash Qbox Q 2.1.1 firmware from matricom. It does get my ethernet working, however it bricked the moment you shut off or disconnect the power from the box.

    -Download my morty421-m8splus-personal-twrp-backuprecovery.zip image from https://drive.google.com/folderview?...HhiWlVIS1kxaVE
    -Extract zip archive to SDCard. You should have a "TWRP" directory and "recovery.img" file on the root of your SDCard.
    -This image has my own software/app configurations. If you do not like, you can factory reset your box the normal way AFTER applying my backup image.
    Brilliant, cheers! i'll try that out asap.

    Is it 4.4 or 5.1?

    Cheers.



    Rofl Harris, Its Android 5.1.

    Heres is how I CREATED my backup image:

    You do not need to do these steps. I am posting this for informational purposes for others.

    -Downloaded TWRP_M8S.img from http://freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-...mlogic-devices (NOTE: there does not appear to be any image name with M8S+ in it... so I picked the M8S image and it worked fine on my tv box)
    -Renamed TWRP_M8S.img to recovery.img and copied it to a 4GB SDCard. Now the SDCard has only 1 file on it named recovery.img.
    -Put SDCard in a *WORKING* M8S+, use toothpick method to boot from the SDCard. TeamWinRecovery loaded!
    -Used "Backup" option from menu to create a backup of all my partitions (except I did not include the cache partition to backup. It reported 0 bytes anyways). I had to change the DESTINATION of the backup to go to the SDCard instead of Internal Memory.

    I now have a backup I can use on my broken M8S+ box!

    How to RESTORE the backup image:

    -Use your own backup image (or if you want to try mine see notes below)
    -Place SDCard into BROKEN M8S+, and use toothpick to boot from SDCard
    -Pick Restore, and follow the prompts

    When completed, unit rebooted and my TV Box is now back up and running!

    If you do not have another M8S+ box to create your own image, feel free to try mine. I only suggest you do this if your PCB looks like mine, and you are having the same problems as I described.

    NOTES on using my backup image:

    -Download my morty421-m8splus-personal-twrp-backuprecovery.zip image from https://drive.google.com/folderview?...HhiWlVIS1kxaVE

    -Extract zip archive to SDCard. The zip archive is password protected and the password is "morty421". You should have a "TWRP" directory and "recovery.img" file on the root of your SDCard.
    -This image has my own software/app configurations. If you do not like, you can factory reset your box the normal way AFTER applying my backup image.



    FINAL NOTES:
    -I have no idea why, but even after restoring my box original firmware using the instructions above, I still have the "Ethernet Disconnected" problem. My router port shows an LED link light to indicate a proper connection. The LED lights on my RJ45 port do light up. But my router logs do not show any indication of any DHCP requests from the unit. I will likely continue troubleshooting this issue some other day when I feel bored
