    Custom firmware for Coowell V5 Android 6 TV Stick 1G/8G??

    Hi everybody,

    I was wondering if there was a custom firmware that I can apply on the HDMI TV Stick ?

    The one I got by default has some problems. Google Play store isn't working (version not compatible with system) and Kodi is hanging when it asks for Username/Password in smb share. Kodi also hang randomly when updating preinstalled plugins.

    Is there a better firmware that I can apply using AMlogic burning tool ?

    Here is the link where I bought the tv stick (http://www.gearbest.com/tv-box-mini-pc/pp_484213.html)

    Thank you!!

      Hmm... I have looked at this device, as possible buy
      But i could not find any review(s) ... ( I was hoping to run libreelec on it)

      Does the device support online updating?
      Could you post a review? Pics/screenshots/temp readings/wifi range/speed test ect
      Has the device a reset button ? ( androids recovery )
      Root access ?

      I heard that spmc run well on the s905x devices...

      Cheers

        What do you mean by online updating?

        It would be à pleasure to post a review, but where do I have to go to get all those readings?

        Yes There is à reset button and i'm able to enter recovery mode.

          I got it, I flashed TWRP and then installed LibreELEC and Kodi is now working like a charm!
          1080p (10Gb) movies streamed via wifi without any hiccup!

                  Mmm.. you can update 7 to 8 by just enabling smb share on lib7
                  then use another pc/device then send lib8.tar to the shared smb/update folder (reboot)

                  more info.. see libreelec wiki

                      ON my file have 2 folders one to twrp disk, other whit scrypto to you conect by adb.....
                      First on android active development options, just select the file and update, will reboot by update tool app from your android, but i dont know why, but on twrp not detect the files on micro SD, you will need one usb pen drive whit the supersu binary.zip files, dont forget before reboot by twrp active developement option.

                      On windows install the adb drivers and reboot....
                      on your android install WiFi ADB Debug Over Air and run....


                      Other detail.. on android... after use the scrypt sending command by adb windows -> android (root_u1.bat), if your super su no show the option cancel or ok to root, show unrooted or not rooted, root occupied,
                      try again
                      the adb conection by scryp.(root_u1.bat).. i dont know if is the wifi or the windows no send correct all command and files to android and not root... Dont worry try again. root_u1.bat. Whit this mode i rooted just 40 coowell to propaganda on tv on supermarkets. and elevators.
                      If you rooted whit sucess using my files and instructions advise me........
