    Strong Rock Box 4 - RK3188 16gb 2gb

    hi guys,

    I was handed this box to see if I could get it up and running. When turned on it just goes to a blue LED but absolutely no display. Holding down the reset button on the side stays on red LED, but no display also. Cant find any information about it online. Managed to put Ubuntu on an SD card and boot into Ubuntu using a Raxda ubuntu image that was floating about but ethernet and wifi dont work. INXI doesnt work on there, so I can't get detailed information I pulled the only info I could from lshw.

    apparently the network interface is asix ax88772b

    so its:

    RK3188 quadcore cpu
    mali 400
    asix ax88772b

    either it's semi bricked or theres nothing on the device that will let it boot via HDMI. I have nothing else to test it on. Because Ubuntu works, I figure the box is still good. Is there anyway I can either get network drivers working or a copy of a similar android image I can write to an SD card to boot from?
