    Hi you don’t need to open your box and short the pins. Turn off your box, make the USB burning tool ready to recover the image and as soon you connect the male to male USB cable to the computer keep pressing the menu button (the one that has 3 bars) on the remote control ( don’t hold the button, press and release many times until Burning tool is ready). Another thing that some people don’t know is although the remote control is Bluetooth, when the box is off it works as infrared only, this means direct the remote control towards the front of the box.

Btw, the Youtube app can stream 4k youtube video smooth but it just hang up after about a minute.

    The other thing is the Chrome app. The Chrome app is default to mobile site but I want it to start with desktop site. I have done a google search and the is a method that requires transfer chrome-command-line file. I try but could not transfer the file because I think the unit is not rooted. There is a install via zip through recovery boot but how do I boot into recovery with the Mecool box?
    Hi I have 2 M8S Pro L. The problem with the YouTube App freezing is actually with the YouTube App version 2.03.04. If you go to the Google Play Store, select to uninstall updates it should now work with version 2.02.08 without problems and no more freezes. If you want, go to Aptoide TV and update the YouTube app to version 2.02.14 that also works well. The only problem is that the YouTube App will update itself again for this new version 2.03.04 that has problems, unless you disable the apps automatically updates in the Google Play Store settings.

    Hi guys. I just received an LB from BG last week and right off it would just hang at the Mecool screen. The folks at BG sent me a firmware link and asked me to try flashing it. I was working my way through this thread and tried lots of things, only to discover that the firmware BG wanted me to flash would have been the wrong one for the LB (they sent me to a link with an old v0928 release) . It doesn't really matter because i never got it to flash, or even start flashing. I did try flashing by shorting the pins with the fw on the SD card and now the Voice remote does nothing. I used to be able to get to the recovery option screen by holding the power button while powering up. Can i fix this?
    So, now that I know which firmware to flash (is there a posting with a link to the 02xx version? I have to go back and look...) I need to know how to flash it to the box (presuming the box works at all). I'm unsure which method, if any, might work. Keep in mind that I'm a newb. Thanks for your help

    Use a reboot recovery app

    Boxes are Rooted but may need control app installing

Been awhile since I used the command line to make Chrome to the desktop mode as default, so I don't remember. I just have to to the settings in Chrome each time I use it.
    Thank you. I'm planning to use it as my PC so I really need to have Chrome default to desktop mode instead of changing the setting for every page,

    Custom firmware in most cases tend to be better than stock firmware.depending on what variant of box you get you may not be able to use custom rom.the LB variant has not got a custom rom available at this point in time.the stock rom is ok though.

    Be careful swapping firmwares, Mecool has changed components on their boxes.
