Default TV box MBOX Android 2.3 from DX

Hello Android TV box users.

I would like to introduce you Android 2.3.4 TV box from DX (SCU 102992) price - 84.80USD Free Shipping!

ARM Cortex A9/Media CPU/OpenGL ES 2.0 GPU/Dual-core Video DSP (Mali)
Amlogic 8726 / 900MHz
512MB DDR2 memory 2GB NAND flash

I bought it 25.11.2011 (black Friday price was 58USD).
And received after 2 weeks (Ukraine, Kiev) with Android 2.2 system, without Market, Flash and etc.

After some "conversations" with DX support and my friend on DX Yareg (he have the same box), i have Android 2.3.4 (with Market, Root and etc.) on this device.

This is my first post and i don't upload or post link for any (photos and etc.)

hi nvv7777
great job by everyone here....

i have this issues where i cant touch the screen to continue..

you had posted this on dx thread

"i had exact same problem.
Solution:
1- restart to recovery mode
2. wipe data and cache
3. install update_gapp.zip

after this - restart, and long tap to Android, then - tap to skip button."

what do u mean by "long tap to Android" and "Tap to skip button"
What is the "tap" means? the "ok" button?

i was prompted to set ethernet and wireless. it rebooted and back to the "touch screen " page again...

Market limited apps associated with: fingerprint options in build.prop. Need fix fix this problem. Yareg and me work for this. Install apps via Apps installer from SDCARD or USB downloaded with alternative market apps.

I have rooted and installed titanium backup, but when I install root explorer it asks for superuser permission, I check yes and then the program forces close. Anyone get root explorer working properly?

Thanks

Run from Terminal app (all without ""):
1. "su" - command for root priv.
2. "cat /proc/mtd" and you have something like this:

#cat /proc/mtd
dev: size erasesize name
mtd0: 00040000 00020000 "000"
mtd1: 00500000 00020000 "111"
mtd2: 00280000 00020000 "222"
mtd3: 04380000 00020000 "333"
mtd4: 04380000 00020000 "444"
mtd5: 04ac0000 00020000 "555"
....

This is MTD blocs.

Then copy this block to the SDCARD:
dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd0 of=/sdcard/000.img
dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd1 of=/sdcard/111.img
dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd2 of=/sdcard/222.img
dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd3 of=/sdcard/333.img
dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd4 of=/sdcard/444.img
dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd5 of=/sdcard/555.img
dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd6 of=/sdcard/666.img

Name of the block must be the same (for example: mtd0: "000" must be = /sdcard/"000".img)

After much playing (lack of market requires download on tablet and then side load to player) I have my "cnet tech" 2.3 built in wireless box working pretty well. I have only one more tweak to see if Netflix player will work.

For those who complain that remote does not work with 2.3, mine works fine along side my wireless keyboard. I can use either one or both at the same time.

Got netflix working.... sometimes and can confirm bluetooth dongle and bluetooth keyboards work.

I have also dumped my complete system blocks from this stock 2.3 player and now need information how I can load it in the DX player as I should have it tomorrow. Once I test it, I can release it for others.

Thanks for the help.

Here are pictures of the circuit board of my player (from cnet tech assumed to be exactly like DX model but with stock 2.3 android) with built in wifi (it takes the space of one of the USB ports which I did not know when I ordered it) and one without wifi built in.

When I dumped my files from my stock 2.3 player they showed the file extension (uboot.img) When I copied them to my windows folders I can not see the file extension (.img) for any of the files. Also when I zip package them with yareg zip sign package, they do not show .img file extension. Am I doing something wrong or will they flash just the same? In any event, I bricked my DX player trying to load my stock 2.3 img files after making update.zip. I also tried yareg recoveryfiles and I am now stuck on reboot recovery screen loop.

I am very new to this firmware process so sorry for silly questions.

Thanks a lot for the reply Creo.
I can't mount the HDD device in NTFS. I have the android version 2.3.1. My device is slightly different of yours (mine has an A8: 1080P Full HD Android 2.3 Network Media Player w/ 3 x USB/SD/HDMI/WiFi/LAN/YPbPr/AV-Out/Optical - Free Shipping - DealExtreme). Do you think I can flash my device with your firmwire with no problems?

My device is slightly different of yours (mine has an A8: 1080P Full HD Android 2.3 Network Media Player w/ 3 x USB/SD/HDMI/WiFi/LAN/YPbPr/AV-Out/Optical - Free Shipping - DealExtreme). Do you think I can flash my device with your firmwire with no problems?
No, your device have a Rockchip 2918, ARM Cortex A8, 1.2GHz !
My device - Amlogic AML8726-m 2 Cores: Cortex A9 + GPU Mali

Guys, thank you very much for the help.

The thing is: My device is good to read NTFS.
When I tried to mount the HDD in NTFS, I probably tried the usb port "device". This port can't read HDDs, afaik. I had to plug the hdd in the other usb, and then it worked very well.
I'm sorry for bothing you guys with this dumb question

UPDATE:

I tried several things.. not sure which worked best, but I ran an update.zip I got from the manufacturer of my stock player that was based on their previous version 2.2. It did get me back to the standard recovery screen. I then tried to reboot, but it stayed with this screen. I tried to then run that update again from standard recovery screen and it would not load with the "build.prop" id error. Then I next ran my 2.3 update.zip from the standard recovery screen that I posted last week that I got from the manufacturer and it worked perfectly and updated to stock 2.3!

I did have some additional problem when I ran Yareg update google apps zip. For some reason it lost the market app and I was unable to sign into any of the other google services. Always said it could not make "data" connection even though wifi was working fine with browser etc.

I may try to reinstall my 2.3 zip and see what happens.

Thanks to all for their work and sharing.

For some reason on my DX box with the 2.3 firmware, I am not able to get Google to communicate "with servers" to add my google account or create a new one.

Anyone else have this problem and how to fix?

Thanks

I had the same problem.
Solution (for me): remove wifi usb dongle and connect to the internet through Ethernet, after this Add Acount and OK with communicate "with server".
Then connect wifi again - and all Google app work OK.

It is very slow the last two days on this board... no more experimenting? Both of my boxes are working great including Netflix via wifi. It can be a little bit with ghost, but mostly very clear in HD

AFter running root zip and getting root access, my clock does not retain the time or date after reboot no matter if I leave setting for Network set time or manual.

Anyone else have this problem? fix?

Thanks

UPDATE

I have reflashed and removed root and time works fine. I find no need to have root access now as I have sideloaded all programs I need for good function of the player. I will not be modifying anyfiles on it at this time unless someone comes up with changes to the build.prop file to allow more market access.

Happy New year and send me PM if you have any questions about how my player is working. I am very happy with the stock 2.3 firmware. The remote works pretty good on most programs except netflix. I can not get it to move anything other than to use the search function.

From Russian forum for Ramos - very dabby, many options not working properly eg. microphone and etc. Not recomended for install on Ramos.
