Excelent, some one will need to isntall any apps that roots the devices thats all. so you can root the mediaplayer with 1 click

examples:
SuperOneClick
4zroot

or any other you will need to try.

My findings on working with Measy X7 and trying firmware from other boxes.

1. Geniatech firmware - Cannot be used since the MTD partitioning naming is different.

2. MBX tagged firmware seems most compatible. However with all of the firmware combinations I have tried, you loose the WiFi capability. i.e Measy was supporting RTL819x USB adaptors. Other have either a built in or even if they support other it is the Realtek (or is is Ralink) 2870 chipset.

The upgrade which worked well for me was the Sumvision firmware (however no Wifi support). It comes with market working, saving screen position, resolution, two launches the Measy type and the Gingerbread native. Dont recall if the Root is built it or not now. However it should be easy enough to do via a custom about 2-3 MB update.zip package.

It seems that the Sumvision firmware too would work here. Only just need to tweak the updater-script to bypass the checks, replace remote.conf and repackage and sign and run upgrade using the factory_update_param.aml method.

The 2.2.1 and 2.3.4 firmware is available at SUMVISION - We Sell PC Hardware, Software, Digital Media, Digital Cameras, MP3 Players, Components, Networking Equipment and more...

Choose the Cyclone Android media center firmware and not the nano firmware. The nano seems to an oem of Geniatech.

NOTE: Upgrading to ICS firmware does not seem to be successful in any form.
For this I was using the M6 ICS firmware from http://www.refeedigital.com/page/download.html.
The M6 upgrade download however has a corrupted refee1210.zip inside the rar file.
So I could not try out the proper way of M6 v2.2.1 -> M6 v2.3.4 -> M6 ICS
What I tried out was Sumvision 1.0 -> Sumvision 1.1 -> M6 ICS which failed

Thought about getting from the Measy v1110 update but they have not done it modularly. It seems have been built into the kernel.
What need to find out is 8192cu.ko and a compatible kernel (boot.img???) that goes with it and then have to package. Plus there should be a firmware (xxxx.dat) file also.
This you can find plenty for 2870 chipset but not for 8192 chipset

@hansmaiser. Could you please post here your MTD partition table layout.
If you have ssh / terminal access the command to execute is cat /proc/mtd
Is your box a Measy X7 or someother make ..

My Measy X7 is now showing something like this...
mtd0 0080 0000 0010 0000 aml_logo
mtd1 0080 0000 0010 0000 recovery
mtd2 0080 0000 0010 0000 boot
mtd3 0C90 0000 0010 0000 system
mtd4 0400 0000 0010 0000 cache
mtd5 6D70 0000 0010 0000 userdata
mtd6 0000 2000 0000 1000 ubootenv
mtd7 0020 0000 0010 1000 ubootwhole

ubootwhole seems to be where spi.img is copied.
Then what is recovery mtd used for?

Most of the incompatibilites with trying out other firmware are
a. boot vs uboot
b. aml_logo vs logo

Default Summary - Comparing compatible firmware

From the various things I have experimented with, compatible firmware seems to be that which says m1ref / co3ref as the model number

The attached pdf has it summarized. Hope this helps others who are looking to upgrade.

I have both a RT2870 (EDIMAX 7811UN) and RA8192SU USB WiFi dongles.
RA8192SU was recognized on the original Measy X7 firmware.
However with

Firmware sources have been take from references in the following forums
1. www.dealextreme.com - Forum Firmware upgrade for mbox
2. www.androidforums.com - For Visson box (search for posting by hansmeiser). This box appears to have SATA disabled by default in the build.props file.
3. www.nikingstore.com and www.refeedigital.com for M6 box. Take the m6-1210.zip from the niking store website.
4. SUMVISION - We Sell PC Hardware, Software, Digital Media, Digital Cameras, MP3 Players, Components, Networking Equipment and more... - For Sum Vision Cyclone Android box. (do not download the nano firmware).

The few ICS updates available definitely much smoother experience and faster responsiveness. Unfortunately I was unable to get Ethernet / WiFi up in ICS so had to rollback to 2.3.4 where atleast Ethernet was working.

Geniatech firmware I am a dead end since it is using a different mtd setup. The naming of the partitions are different. If someone reading this can help me with the contents of /proc/mtd from a ATV1000 I can probably put in effort to reformat the nand and see if the GeniaTech firmware can be used.

Hi blrdude39, here is mtd file from my ATV1000: Attachment 31314
I hope it can be useful.

Default Rest in Peace - Hard bricked my box

Just letting people know.

Please do not try to upgrade / modify your Measy X7 with GeniaTech firmware. I tried it and now my box the light glows but I dont get any display on the TV screen.

So please only work with the firmware I had listed in an earlier post with a PDF attachment. i,e the ones that say board as m1ref or c03ref. With those I have flashed in various orders and combinations and never managed to brick the box. It has always been able to recover.

Seems like the the UART method is the only way to go now.
I am good with Linux, some basic electronics to solder cables and such and have with me a Nokia Serial to USB cable. But no where can I find the schematic or image to figure out where on the circuit board I can find the UART pins. Does anyone have contacts at Measy.com to get this piece of information.

Hi blrdude39, what's happened?
Why have you tried this dangerous test?
I hope you can solve...

Send a email to support@measy.com.cn also add sales3@measy.com.cn and put in the subject measy x7 bricked please help.

In the body ask for the schematics .

Then let us know if you reveived and ppst it

LOL. Must say I was either out of my mind or just in a too much experimenting mood.

In order to try out the geniatech firmware I decided that first I would have to do a spi upgrade for which I prepared the update package using the 20110907SPI.zip from Geniatech and removed the timestamp and stvm3 check on it. Pointed to use the 512MB related files. Resigned the package and did the upgrade.
Once it got to the reboot stage, after that I did note get any display on the HDMI output. So checked with the regular TV output cable no luck there too.
My guess is either the SPI is not compatible or the startup settings in the env_512 files is using some setting that causes the video out to be messed up.

So no I cannot figure out what is happening since there is no video output visible.

So unless my email to Measy yields some results in the form of getting schematics or where to connect a UART cable I am stuck. The dealer in India where I bought this box does not have servicing facility where they can reflash the device. I would have to send it back to China which would work out too expensive.

Worst case I guess I will replace the box with another box if some friend of mine is coming down from the US
Android Full HD 1080P Media Player w/ USB/SD/HDMI/RJ45 Ports - Black (2 x AAA) - Free Shipping - DealExtreme . This box looks like the best deal at USD 75 (with free shipping to the US).

or pay almost double around USD 150 and get the rebranded GeniaTech ATV1000 in India from
Mobility Makes A Difference . This one comes with the Fly mouse (that I already have) and 4GB ram insteam of 2 GB ram.

@blrdude39:

I have this box (dx.com/android-full-hd-1080p-media-player-w-usb-sd-hdmi-rj45-ports-black-2-x-aaa-102992), currently running 2.3.4. It shows as a MBX c03ref, and I was thinking to upgrade it to ICS 4.0.3, using the M6 firmware. Could you please guide me through the lashing/modification steps ?

Btw. sorry for your broken Measy. Any news about it ?

Thanks !

@tatubias:

Well, I need flash 11 and understood that in ICS 4.0 it is HW accelerated, while on my box with 2.3.4 it is not. Pls. let me know if you are aware about HW-accelerated flash tricks/tips etc.

@tatubias: On my 2.3.4 flags 10.2 is HW-accelerated while 11.xx is not. From what I read/understand, 11 should be accelerated in ICS 4.0. Anyways, I just wanted to see how it looks, etc.

Yes, I understand that, but blrdude39 was very close... He wanted to attempt the ICS firmware from M6, but had to abandon it because of a corrupted file. I managed to obtain the whole/correct ICS M6 firmware, so I thought this may be a good starting point for picking it up from where blrdude39 left it.

Hi tatubias. I appreciate you job. There is another thread that explain and develop an Android v4.0x firmware for the same ARM cortex SoC, but there is a difference on board type.

http://androidforums.com/google-tv/530964-android-2-3-4-0-wifi-internet-hd-1080p-hdmi-google-tv-box-arm-cortex-a9-firmware-7.html

The difference is that the firmware look for a "c03ref" board, and Measy X7 have an "m1ref" Board. I don't know if there is another restriction to install this firmware.

I saw at dialextreme forum than some device change this flag with firmware upgrades. Firmware upgrade? [Update: Download Link here]

My intention , if you agree, to exchange your experience and join effort with stane1983 . This will be appreciate for the whole measy x7 owners community.
If you agree, i will post this on the other thread to promote synergy.
Sorry about my English.

Thanks a lot for your time.

root the device if you want, the only benefit of rooting is that you can install some apps that you can not install if the device is not rooted. do some tweeking. and not much more.


allays try to get the original rom before rooting or playing around because you can brick it.

it has a source of 2A only.

with torrent works EXCELENT.

When i did test samba was only thought wifi, and it was not able to read form the hd. you need to test the last version of the samba software

also you need to root the device if you want to use samba

All I'm looking at doing is trying to increase the processor speed and editing the device name so I can get more apps from the app store. Also I like having total access to device to make small tweaks. A Temporary rooting method would be great so that I can make the mods needed and return to locked so the kids can screw it up. Do you know of a good app that will give me temporary root access to make permanent changes? I'm not planning on playing with the ROM or any of that jazz because the OS seams solid and functions well. This won't be my first rooted device so I'm not worrying about bricking.

Thank You For You Help!

@robustnet i dont undestand your question. if you turn off the tv. the media players it stills on. so you can put it to down load a file or do what do you need. ( i had andorid 2.2 installed in my device). you can turn off the mediaplayer with the remote controll.

@Tatubias

sir this is how it goes.

measy x7 and TV is turned on downloading torrent file thru atorrent.


When I turned off the TV only then I turned it on again, measy is in booting stage even though I did not turned it off. Then back to desktop. All previous application running is not there anymore.
As if it was resetting, every time I turned off the TV and turned it on again.

So I cannot download if TV is off.

I use HDMI connection.

Sir what connection are you using AV or HDMI?

So di ako maka download ng torrent kasi nawawala sya pag off ng tv.


My connection is thru HDMI
please ask the questions in english. i dont know philipino.

witch version of android do you have installed. when i did had 2.2 installed i did never got any issue.

you can try installing this application.
Wake Lock - PowerManager



https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.thedarken.wl

with this application you will be able to make the screen never goes off and wifi keeps alive.

test it.

also you can try going into the settings into the development menu there it is an option that says allways On when plugged or something like that. please check that option.

My X7 does the same thing with the 2.3.4 OS. Once it reboots I have to reconfigure the display resolution if I forget to turn off X7.

Hi all,

I bought an X7 with Android 2.3.4. I use Ethernet instead of WiFI.
I've read all post in this thread, but I can't find any solution for my problems:

1. Can't access to device from my PC (Win7). The device's IP is visible and PING. Can't reach via browser as well.
2. If I can see well I haven't write permission to my internal HDD (1,5TB Samsung). Anything I want to copy to it, returns with an error message. The file moving process reach 100% but in the writing phase there is an error message.

Thanks for any help guys.

1 - are you trying to do this thought Ethernet / wifi?
if yes. the device does not bring any application to share the hard drive.

you need to root the device and install samba server application. when i did used long time ago only support wifi sharing.

2 - if you want to connect the hd to your pc you need to use the lateral connector the Blue one. and pluggit to you usb port of the pc.


try get support from meassy.

This is how I setup my measy x7

1. I use component connection not HDMI. (my hdmi connection resets the device every reconnection of the TV input or when I turn off the TV and back on.) So I get only low resolution in native display and it has a color sync issues but i manage to solve it by going to display output choosing any resolution and when it ask you to reset just click no.

2. I use ghost commander with samba plugin( I can access now my pc shared thru measy x7. But cannot access device via pc coz no sharing features.)

3. My device is not yet rooted so I cannot have samba server.

4. I have 2TB Samsung Installed and it has minimal heat, plus I installed usb fan at the bottom of the device. So I'm running TTorrent 23hrs a day now with no heat issues. I have partition my Hd into three, all extended logical drive.

5. Video play back is good, torrent downloading is good, my only problem when accessing hd folders sometimes it lags specially if the folder has many files. Sometimes I clear data of the media storage and it eliminates lag but it comes again when media storage is big.

6.Regarding not shutting down properly. I just exit all programs that uses the Hd so if i turned off measy x7 it wont have a problem with the hard disk.

7. Programs I used:
a. ghost commander with samba plugin
b. TTorrent
c. go chat for Facebook
d. flash player
e. perfect viewer
f. meridian mp3 player (can use folder selection)

8. I use to have Google play but i don't use it anymore, coz all programs suddenly not compatible any more. I use other site.

9. The device sometimes hang. specially if running many application. I can live with that.

10. So far the device meets all my purpose and requirements. The question now on my mind is how long is it going to last.
