    was hoping for .img files and those look like zips for twrp recovery/restore

    i can't see the screen because hdmi out is not showing a picture

    are there img versions available that i can use with the usb burning tool?
    You could try one of Magendanz versions.They are available as OTA and img. Be aware of LQ and LB Versions.

        First of all, thank you for a wonderful firmware.

        The reason for my post is that after installing the firmware through the OTA update, everything works fine, but there is no working Files app ( default, stock Android file manager ).

        I can clearly see it in the /system/priv-app/DocumentsUI/DocumentsUI.apk, but there is no shortcut to it in the launcher, and it cannot be started in any way, for the purpose of browsing files on the internal storage or the external memory card.

        Could you look into it, please? Otherwise, it takes a bit of jumping through hoops to install an initial/alternative file manager through the Downloads provider app, when not using the Play Store.

        Thank you for your time.

          I'll take a look at this. Sounds like VideoStrong changed the manifest so that it doesn't show in the launcher.

        I would really, really appreciate it. Thank you.

        EDIT: I have the NANO OTA package on my box.

            No, not yet...and I wouldn't hold your breath. I'm starting a new job right now and am fighting a cold. Won't have time probably for a week or two.

          No worries. I wish you the best of luck at the new job, and here's to that damn cold going away soon!

            Just received a Wechip W1 airmouse & remote control. Works wonderfully with this box. So, if anyone is looking for a good remote, I can recommend it.

                So you struggle installing apps without access to filemanager?
                Why you dont use adb shell and Install TotalCommander?
                adb Install package.apk.
                Or copy to usb drive and use built in terminal with
                pm Install package.apk

                  It's not a problem for me, but for the rest of the family that have the same boxes and Magendanz firmware installed on them

                      Dear All,

                      I have bought a Mecool M8S pro l (LB) TV Box. It is working well but I have one particular problem with it. If I try to connect to WIFI it can see the available SSIDs but it can connect only to SSID without password protection. If I try to connect to a password protected SSID it cannot connect because of "invalid password" (I am sure about the pwd) and it has no IP address. If I check it in the router logs I can see that the connection was successful but it has no IP. I tried the WPS as well, the TV BOX said connection successfully, but it is not true because it has no IP at all and it is not working. I installed this Nexus ROM but the box can still connect only to open (without password) WIFI. With ethernet cable it is working well.

                      Do you have any idea what is the problem?

                      Thanks!

                        Some fellow Mecool owners reported issues with certain router models. Not knowing the model of your router, I cannot comment.

                        You can try different WIFI encryption methods, if the router allows it. Also, there is probably a DHCP issue ( old IP lease or something similar ). Did you restart the router?
