    Hi everyone,
    I've got same problem, TV box loops on bootstart and I am not able to restore device (process stops on download IDB 'cause it fails).
    I found on internet a possible solution to bypass the IDB block, you should connect the Clock (CLK) and Ground (GND) pins on the board before connecting it to the PC via USB, but I can't find them!
    I noticed that I've got same board posted by Tolian , so could someone help me?
    Many thanks

        You do realise Batchtool v1.8 doesn't support Oreo or higher Android versions?
        Try at least with AndroidTool v2.59 or FactoryTool v1.63

            Then you flashed the wrong firmware or the manufacturer made different hardware changes to the same device again.
            Ask the manufacturer Wechip or the seller for the correct stock firmware.

          You guys need to try different versions of flash tool to get success.

                Many, MANY THANKS!!!

                I used AndroidTool_Release_v2.51 flashed firmaware:
                RK3328-H96MAX+_hs2734_8.1.0_20181008.2210.img
                It's crashed by first boot and write that Google Play Services was stopped.
                The same result was using FactoryTool_v1.6.

                This firmware:
                RK3328-H96MAX+_hs2734_8.1.0_20180820.1437.img
                works stable but don't see a Bluetooth.

                Stock firmware worsk stable the same. But I don't remember it's number and can't find it in Internet.
                I've already wrote about it here:

                  Don't worry, you need to short those two pins (WHILE inserting USB cable, otherwise it won't work.):
                  Whats that mean? I am having same issue, the laptop finds it then doesn't... please help

                      I am in same situation with this android box.. bought it only 3 weeks ago, seller doesn't bother replying me... want to break it down tbh. But i know it's fixable just need to know step by step how to fix it. especially when it comes to window 10 to recognize its usb.... please let me know if you fixed it..

                        Finally got it sorted... the seller sent me the firmware it's called RK3328_DC_H96_MAX+_HS2734_8.1.0_20190218.0557.img
                        one thing nobody mentioned if you are going to short pin that you will have to have ELECTRIC POWER connected to it as well!"!!!!

                        the pin as other member here mention exactly same location. i used tweezers to hold on those pins then so steps i taken...

                        Put electric cord first
                        hold on those pins
                        while holding the AV button with stick connect the USB

                        it'll recognize straight away and then upgrade on FactoryTool_v1.6.

                        But I am back to square 1... the remote control is not working...

                        Anyone do you know if any universal remote will work?

                          Again I tried your progress but fails to shorten pins :-(
                          Can you send a screen or video as you progress? Thank you

                            I can't do it again, as i am afraid it will break for ever did you get the firmware from the seller? Because even tho same version of the tv box, but firmware could be different. but the shorthen pins and pressing button, putting the usb in computer not 1 person job.. you need to press two pins with a metallic item while putting the usb cable back to computer. once you hear the noise that computer recognized your tv box, then press the button in the AV hole..

                              Hello to all,

                              i'm new in this kind of forums and also updating tv box firmware... maybe thats wy i think i screw up.
                              I ha an H96 max H2 4gb/32gb with RK3328.
                              I used the factory tool 1.6v to upgrade the firmware and it finished with menssage fail IDB (or something like that).
                              At the moment i didnt worry and disconnectd the box to try on tv.. puf absolutly nothing. black screen and no boot at all (even the h96 logo on the start, but the blue light was on)

                              So i found you forum and tried the shortpin stuf to enter in maskrom in order to eraseflash with android tool 2.38 and 2.51 / Rocketship batch tools 1.8, and then upgrade. Unforyunatly when i try either options the menssage is always the same "download boot failed".

                              OK i thought it was rom problems and started to try some (a lot actualy.) and the result was always the same.

                              Can anyone help me on this long journey?

                              Thank you all to give me hope until now by reading you comments and achieve this step. Now i'm stuck but maybe someone can help me.

                              Best regards
