This firmware is for the A95X Plus model only. Do not attempt to use it on any other device. They are not for ANY other model, even if it has a similar name, they will not work and could damage your machine. Do not flash these files if you do not know which device you have.

Firmware Reflash with PC and USB cable

You will need a Male to Male USB cable, something like https://www.amazon.co.uk/HAVIT-Cable-Type-Male-Black/dp/B00UF8SEA0/

Download the firmware image for the A95X Plus from https://mega.nz/#!zOoShQyb!3r_9_hSy5wntPgV5_d4rxOLi6flBn9O04CG0yG72Wk4.

Extract the firmware zip file. There should be one .img file inside. You should not click on it to open or extract, we'll use it later. If you see an error message on your PC about the image being corrupt, please close the program, the file is needed for use on the DroidBOX, rather than the PC.

Download https://mega.nz/#!rP5WXYCA!HY89Hm2N1-hWnuQzZUOHY33XZUrWarjAWCQhP-c_8wE and open it. You will be asked if you want to install Amlogic's USB Burning tool - you do.

The first time you open it, if the menus are not in English, click the second menu and select English.

Click on the "File" menu and click "Import image". Navigate to your Downloads folder and select the firmware .IMG file from the USB folder.

You'll need to wait a moment whilst it analyses the file.

Now click the "Start" button.

Disconnect all cables and peripherals from your device. Connect the USB cable to the USB 2.0 socket (black one, not the blue one) on the back of the device. Then connect it to your PC and let Windows automatically install the drivers it needs.

Afterwards, the software will begin flashing the firmware. If it shows a red error message; remove the USB cable from the device, wait a few seconds, then reconnect it. You may need to do this a few times. If after say 4 times, there may be a more serious error with the device, please contact DroidBOX support.

Once the process is complete and reported as successful, you can click the "Stop" button, and disconnect the USB cable. Reconnect the HDMI and power cable. The first time you boot the device, it will take a while longer than usual while it is completing the first time setup, this is normal. Once you can see the launcher's homescreen, please leave the device alone for 10 minutes whilst it re-installs the applications.

Applications continue to install in the background and if interrupted will not resume the next time you boot up.
