    Flash with AndroidTool v2.65 with DriverTool v4.8 installed. 9 9
    Connect USB C cable to your PC, plugged into the button left port on Khadas Edge V and press the middle Function button 3 times in 2 seconds to enter Loader mode.

    If already on Khadas Edge Pie firmware, just do Upgrade.
    If still on Nougat do Erase Flash then Upgrade.
    (For additional info posted by users, can also check

    Flashing on other devices might brick you device, so don't try if you don't have a backup and know how to recover from MaskROM Mode.

    Look forward to giving it a run. Thanks.


      Looking Good...

      First boot you get to choose what settings to use
      Then appears the launcher options

      Home screen Sample Black screen only and fails
      Home Screen OK

      Flashed twice to confirm...

      Also Black edge on ES File explorer not full screen

          No, doesn't support it most likely as the hardware is very different.
          10-bit Anime works great on this firmware on Khadas Edge RK3399, everything hardware decoded.
          It's a pity Wechip -, the manufacturer of the H96 only cares about Nougat.


            hi mo123, suitable for vs-rk3399?

              The Khadas Edge is very different than other devices. It uses USB-C for power, not a barrel connector, only 2 USB ports, no SPDIF, different camera, lcd, extension boards, different remote, different voltages for components. So the chance of it working on other devices is less than 10%.

              From Android Pie onwards partitions are also linked to each other and don't boot if compiled on different dates or machines. File hash values are also checked to see if they weren't tampered with later. All Google's plan to improve security and make custom firmware development harder.

              You can ask Videostrong to make their own Pie firmware and skip their outdated Oreo firmware perhaps. The Khadas Edge and RockPi 4 RK3399 are far better development boards with community support.

              The only way I can make firmware for other devices is if the manufacturer provides a sample device, source code and device patches.

            I already tore apart MO's firmware and a stock N6-rk3399 firmware as reference, to see how different the 2 devices are, this Edge firmware doesn't have Ramdisk in the boot.img so my guess it will not work in any tv box board except on the Edge development board. Don't try it, you'll just brick your box.
