    So, I just added a big red warning on the OP about the new incompatible M8S PRO W hardware revisions. Has anyone determined an easy way to detect if you've got the newer revision?

    (For example, when Mecool changed the wireless chipset on the M8S PRO L, the new model descriptions on the back ended with "LB".)

              I wasn't planning to, since the performance on this box is marginal at best. I'm not really a fan of the S905W and I make heavy use of Bluetooth, so I wouldn't purchase another myself. When I bought the first one, I'd been hoping to get Bluetooth working with a USB dongle...but that never panned out.

            Please! !!!!! Magendanz

                  My Mecool M8S Pro W is running the firmware from the first post "update_M8S_PRO_W-V0928_TVStock-20180311.zip"

                  I also installed the BurnKey Tool when Netflix started to clamp down on these unofficial Android boxes, and all has been running well for several months.

                  A few days ago I was watching some YouTube videos when it threw me back to the homescreen. When I went back into YouTube, I found I was no longer signed in, and cannot sign back in to YouTube anymore.

                  I also can no longer load the Play Store, or Netflix, (get error code ui-800-3)

                  Anyone else getting this?
                  Has Google/Netflix put another stop on unofficial Android boxes?

                    Installation on my M8S ProW is frozen for about an hour :/

                    I did everything according to instructions:
                    I used BurnCardMaker to write M8S_PRO_W-V0928_TVStock-20180311.img on microSD card. No errors, success. Card is 100% good.
                    My Mecool was updated to newest official software.
                    I powered it off, inserted prepared card, powered on and nothing, judging by the progress bar it's stucked at 2% maybe!?

                    What should I do now? Power off and try again with M8S_PRO_W-V0928_Nano-20180311? Could it be because of too big size?

                      My guess is that you've got a new hardware revision that's incompatible with the old bootloader. If you try this via USB Burning Tool, you should get a (slightly) more meaningful error.

                    Okay but I can't boot the old system.
                    Could you advise where to download from flashable stock firmware?

                      Tried like a dozen times. On 2 computers, on 2 cables, even on XP VM. Always same error. Help please.

                      In the spirit of the Pure Nexus Project, these TVStock Nexus ROMs deliver the pure Android TV experience using the Open GApps TVStock Package. The goal is to keep true to Google's vision and use the bare minimum of OEM or third-party apps or add-ons, which can be added ?* la carte by the user as needed, just as I've done with the Stock and Nano variants.

                      • Updated to the latest Mecool M8S PRO W OEM firmware (20171030.152444.V0619),.

                      Download:Notes:
                      • The underlying OEM firmware for this build is pre-rooted, so this is too.
                      • The updater is signed, and so can be installed in the Update app, the stock recovery, or TWRP. It's designed for incremental updates, since user data is preserved. If you're installing for the first time, you should include a data wipe.
                      • The safest bet is always to install the full Amlogic burn package with USB Burning Tool. With no reset switch, you can trigger USB detection by typing "reboot update" in a terminal window.
                      • The local terminal app shows after being enabled in Settings->Developer Options. (This must be revealed by clicking Settings->About->Build 7 times.)
                      • Flash ROMs at your own risk and always remember to back up your data first. The burn package includes a factory reset.

                        Okay I bought second M8S Pro W.
                        Is there a way to dump rom from the new one and flash it on bricked one?

                        Also is there a way to try and boot your rom from sd/usb like CoreElec? Just boot it, leave the stock firmware untouched.
