    Thank you for the link, but that wasn't the question. I was wondering if someone knew what the changes were. Saw a few links for the firmware all over the web, but no one seams to know what's new.

      Sorry, I wasn't trying to answer the question. Just providing a handy link in case someone wanted to diff the two firmware releases. With the OEM not providing a changelog, that's really what you've got to do to get an idea of what was modified.

    Do you know if this firmware has the navigation and status bar working?

      Yup. I noticed that after doing some further investigation
      And the AP6255, from what I could gather, it's a Broadcom BCM43455. Right?


        Magendanz Now I get confused haha. Are there actually 2 firmware releases or is you link just a different, probably much faster, download link?

        Well, for my part, this is the result of night work.
        We sew on the original official.

        If if someone has not had time to sew on any then there is no need for boxing firmware.
        Install the box on the terminal, go in the terminal, write reboot update.
        Boxing comes in stock recovery.
        Next, through the mounted Recovery install UPDATE_PTCH_TANIX_TX5_MAX.ZIP

          Got myself two of them.

          One is working fine, the other not.
          It keeps "freezing"/lagging every now and then and you actually have no use for it.
          Temps seems ok and i had the same behaviour with the wifi turned off and the lan cable disconnected.
          I just downloaded the fw update in case a miracle happens (also tried factory reset). Can someone post the update procedure please?
          I am reffering to the official fw, not the Russian one (is the procedure the same?).


            Attention! Box is locked by the manufacturer! Before you do something, think carefully. Do not take any action without prior backup !

            Download firmware from (zip file OTA update)


            Download Flashify from playstore, the box is generally already rooted so download and flash TWRP image after >placing TWRP img in sd card and >>choose to flash from storage using img file option (TWRP img is in above link too but blurry) prefer img below
   (u will have to register and login)post #221)

            Restart the box and immediately pressing menu button rapidly...u shd boot in TWRp Recovery or use rebooter app

            Use TWRP
            Backup the ROM

            Then flash the ZIP file with latest Firmware downloaded above ZIP file ota update
            To get navigation bar you have to flash the update patch by Vasily_5

            whatever we do its totally at our own risk and peril. u brick ur box its ur paperweight ur work

              Hi there usernamereg

              Thanks for the help and the links

              Were you able to install the update patch through the stock recovery, or did you updated through TWRP?

              It seems the TWRP link is no longer working, i get a 404 error. (also couldn't register because of the "type this" part... it's russian )

              i tried updating the patch through the stock recovery update, but it's not working . I get a signature verification error (error 2 )
              Tried a TWRP for the X96 max, also get signature verification error.

              So , i'm still stuck with no status bar no navigation bar

              Edit :

              Meanwhile i found a TWRP for U211 boards (X96 MAX ; GT1 mini) but it also worked on my TX5 Max

              All is up and running now ^_^

              Both bars are working and there are some new interesting apps , i just need to brush up my Russian language knowledge (wich is zero ) to change them to english.

              If someone is having the same problem as i was , loading TWRP. Here's the link :

                How to fix the issue? "system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl" don't have 28 DPAD_CENTER. In Kodi is ok, but in Chrome is q instead of Enter.

                  Set key 28 to ENTER, but you've got to get the copies in both the /system and /vendor partitions.

                I didn't know about /vendor. Thanks a lot.

                    I don't know a specific version for the TX5 Max.
                    But this version works very good on it. Only thing not working is Bluetooth.



                      Is the 'Led Display Clock' and 'Stock remote' working & does it have Navigation bar & Notification Curtain?

                      also has anyone tried this one :- TanixTX5Мах-Volksware v.0.2.0_by_Sasvlad
