    [Step by step Tutorial] Recover a bricked H96 Max+

    This tutorial is valid for H96 Max+ 32 Gb/64 Gb versions

    What you need:
    Usb male to male cable
    Rockchip Driver Assistant v4.5:!FpQj3IbJ!C9tRZ4Afl...QfKHbVKhrQpG9M
    Factory Tool v1.64:!sxAR0SYL!EE_Sl9tCX...ITazHJVgJaIk0I
    Android 9.0 ROM:!Ng4EBYpD!61abR0JUH...N8SVwi5rI49pkA

    Must Read Announcement:

    In my experience i've noticed that the ROM you need to download must be the same or higher version than the ROM version you currently have on H96 Max+.
    I'm not sure this is true for you too, but it won't hurt.

    If the flash fails, probably the ROM you downloaded is not right. You must update/restore following the chronological date order written on the bottom of the ROM title.

    Simple example: 1.2 ROM, 1.3 ROM , 1.4 ROM f, if in your device is installed the 1.2 ROM , the updating/restoring process using the 1.4 ROM file will be impossible if you have not before installed the 1.3 ROM.

    I put version 9 of Android because it is the last, but you have to based on what I just wrote.

    H96 Max+ ROMs!B8gBhAKD!bZHKBR5FhfIAc93zd0aE6Q (I don't know the author of these files).

    Let's start

    Extract all the downloaded resources. For extract drag and drop where you want the file or folder contained in the zip archive.
    (also on your Desktop would be fine)

    Open Rockchip Driver assistant folder and run DriverInstall.exe ---> Press Install Driver ---> Wait for the notification and press OK.

    Click image for larger version  Name:	2.jpg Views:	0 Size:	112.0 KB ID:	788006

    Open Factory Tool Folder and run FactoryTool.exe ---> click on "Firmware" [1]
    Choise the downloaded Android 9 ROM [2] (is in .img format)
    Click on the restore voice [3] ---> Click Run [4].

    Now is the time to connect your bricked device to your pc. You musn't use the alimentation cable, but only the male to male usb cable.

    Insert the usb male to male cable in your pc, not in H96 Max+ for now. [1]

    Press the hidden button located in the av entrance of H96 Max+ with a toothpick [2]. (be careful)

    Connect the usb male to male cable in the H96 Max+while keeping the hidden button pressed [3]. (not in blue usb port)

    Click image for larger version  Name:	4.jpg Views:	0 Size:	93.5 KB ID:	788008

    Factory Tool will detect the H96 Max+, remove the toothpick from the hidden button. The restore process will begin automatically.

    Wait for the green notification in Factory Tool, remove the usb cable from H96 Max+ and enjoy your working device!
