I've been experienced a little issue with Youtube on c03ref firmware.

The video loads and can be played fine, but the replay button does not works. The only way i found to reload the video is hitting the play button on the center of screen, sliding the position cursor to the begining and then hit the play button again, wich is a little tricky.

Has anyone experienced this issue?

dear stane, thank you for this wonderful firmware. it brings new life to my device.

you told me for the moment there is not chance to do update of the rom, everytime it needs to be all reinstalled.

but there is a system to do backup of current rom? there is some implementation of CWM recovery ? since actually the recovery has not any backup/restore function.

i saw your link to a cwm - cyanogenmod thread but there are no useful info on this, it was also for tablets not for tv.

Default Adobe Flash for Android

Hi to all,

From tomorrow Adobe officially stops distribution of his Flash player for all Android based devices. It will be no longer available on Google Play also.

JellyBean itself also doesn't support Flash (officially), and since Amlogic is porting JB sources to their platform, I'm afraid that we're stuck with current flash player 10.2 released by Amlogic (which is not perfect...) as long as we stay on ICS.

I don't have any timeline, but JB sources will be available soon for M3 platform (f16ref). Will see how all this will work on M1 platform (c03ref).

Regards

Hi there.

I have a HD18 (c03ref board) android tv box, also known as URAKU T1, ZAP-A9 and GV-13..

Well. The thing is that i have the IR remote controller issue (does not works on stane's firmwares) and i have read a post where a user (CoyoteX) ask to Stane for removing the remote control configuration from kernel in next firmware release, so I am wondering if the IR remote controller misfunction is actually a kernel related issue?

Been reading many threads were people says that replacing the remote.conf file in /system/etc folder will solves this issue, but i am still not getting lucky with that.

I tried the uraku t1 2.3 (gingerbread) and 4.0 (ICS) firmwares with the same result.

Does anyone knows another tip/trick to get back my remote controller?

Hi janolarson

Latest version of Stane´s fw works like a charm for me.

Replace remote.conf from URAKU T1 and your IR works too.

This file in /system/etc and need reboot your device


Regards.

Sorry. my english is not good. what i tried to say in my previous post was that i have replaced the remote.conf files several times and my controller still does not works.

the last time it worked was before installing this firmware. then i tried other firmwares but i am not able to get it back.

I assume it's c03ref device. Latest firmware is 20120810 Beta1. With this fw remote works, with previous versions is not working.

You can find it on V-Play download section

I installed your 20120810 Beta1 firmware for c03ref device and it runs like a charm, but my remote does not work. I replaced the remote.conf file with a copy from original firmware and the same thing happens: no remote controller!

I know I have to copy the remote.conf to /system/etc but how do I do this. What program do I use?

You can use es file explorer or any other root file explorer. If using es file exporer, start superuser app first, close it, go to es file explorer's settings, thick up to root, root explorer and mount system as r/w. That way you will be able to access all files and folders.

Hello, like many others, I also have a box that identified itself as MBX DVBT c03ref. It has no onboard wifi nor Bluetooth. On a previous post, Stane told another user with the same device as mine to replace the bootloader (aml-uboot-ucl.bin) with one from my original firmware. There was no such file on the firmwares I found for it, so I installed Stane's firmware anyway, using the reset button (20120810_Android_ICS-ATV-108-c03ref-beta1).

Here's my feedback: even though I didn't spend much time with the original firmware (i'm a bit impatient when there's an update available), Stane's firmware runs very fast and stable. The only app I encountered a problem was Chrome, that stopped responding when I tried to enter its settings page. Youtube played videos fine, and the stock video player handled my largest 1080p movies with ease, it's amazing!

One generic chinese bluetooth dongle didn't work, but another one from D-link worked, as long as it's plugged when I turn the box on (like Stane said it should be). But my wifi adaptor was a no-go, it wouldn't work even if plugged before boot (brand "Edimax", model EW-7318USg http://www.edimax.com/en/produce_detail.php?pl1_id=1&pl2_id=44&pl3_id=88&pd _id=8). USB Keyboard/mouse and remote control also worked fine (after replacing remote.conf).

I just have 2 gripes: boot time is a bit long. After plugging power, the box stays 10 secons showing "A9" logo. Then 70 seconds showing the green android, then 30 more seconds with the shining "android" word. So it's a total of 1:50 before I can see the launcher. Could it be because I didn't replace the bootloader, or is it normal? My box was announced as having an 800Mhz processor.

Second is XBMC. Some other people said it runs their videos fine, but that's not the case for me. While the stock player is wonderful, XBMC is very different. I tested the precompiled APKs from this xda thread "XBMC For Android Nightlies ". Tested both the Neon and the non-neon versions, and the performance was the same.

Edit: one last question: is there any way to properly shut down the box before powering off? It doesn't feel right that the remote control simply kills everything.

Wow, huge post, sorry for that. I'll try to be more brief next time. But I wanted to thank Stane for the wonderful firmware, and the enormous patience to help us newbies out. Peace!

Stane, I've got the c03ref version and I just installed your latest firmware from V-Play. All looks good but the wifi just hangs up on "enabling wifi". I worked fine on the previous stock firmware. Any suggestions?

Arm/Boot Loader/How to burn a uboot to board - Amlogic

Do everything it says here except use bootloader file you got with your firmware (your file: u-boot-aml-ucl.bin instead of u-boot-aml.bin)

If you have picture on your tv (scrambled), see my post here:

Hi, Thanx, good point, didn't check openlinux wiki these days... There is no much info on how to do it...

Anyway, you can use SDTool from V-Play download section (works under Windows XP only), short guide can be found here, question: I upgraded my device and now I don't have any picture on TV. Is my device bricked?

I'm preparing myself to do upgrade to this faq, but never had time to do it... will do in near future

Also, there is pdf from Amlogic how to do recovery sdcard from Linux, but I cannot share it (lot of stuff in that document is confidential). I will extract sdcard recovery and will post here...

Hey there Stane! so far c03ref is workin pretty good. bluetooth works with a couple of dongles i have, but once paired, devices can't do anything. mouse can't move pointer, joysticks don't work, keyboard doesn't work. also, netflix wont even load now. no menus or anything. otherwise, things seems to be workin great! mini remote control works, although the mouse button is mapped wrong. audio in and microphone work great again! wifi seems to work better. less dropouts...i still gotta test skype with video with my logitech c270. so my only wishes for this thing are netflix and uinput so i can use google-tv remote and droidmote with it. otherwise, this is pretty damn good!

XBMC is still very alpha. Last I checked there was no acceleration, meaning that devices like this are going to have some issues.

Stane...I'm trying to get the uboot prompt. Any thoughts on how to do this? I have next to nothing as far as uboot experience.

Hi,

why do you need uboot prompt and what are you trying to achieve with that?

You have to solder TTL interface to the board, connect to it and you have to interrupt bootloader when board boots (you have 3 seconds to do that). If you don't interrupt it it will continue by loading linux kernel....

Hi, your device is Refee AML8726M3 device (f16ref), but my fw is not working on that device. I would suggest you to contact your seller to send link to latest firmware for your device. After that, try to install it. If unsuccessful, PM me with the link to fw...

Hi, is it possible to make handsfree bluetooth device to work as a microphone ? I tried with mine, is detected as a headphone with mic (at least it is shown like that) and audio is working though the device, but mic is not working, it just doesn't receive any audio from it.... any ideas ?

Thanks.

I don't know what's happening with wifi. I have cpl of mine c03ref devices, wifi works perfectly, had Avipi's c03ref device and he had problems loosing connection with my wifi router (Buffalo)....

Now I shipped Avipi's device back to him and again I can't reproduce wifi problem because wifi is working perfectly on all our c03ref devices...

Will try to figure something out...

Since there are debian and ubuntu distros that support the ARM architecture, and there are some devices that support booting linux via the SD slot, I was thinking how neat it'd be to be able to boot linux off this device. That would require some knowledge of uboot, which I don't have unfortunately.

You have to solder TTL interface to the board, connect to it and you have to interrupt bootloader when board boots (you have 3 seconds to do that). If you don't interrupt it it will continue by loading linux kernel....

I see what you're trying to achieve... I don't have time to play with it, but it should go like this:

- you find linux distro which is supported by your platform
- do all partitioning and copying/cloning image files to sdcard partitions from linux
- solder an ttl interface to device and interrupt bootloader to stop booting linux kernel from nand memory
- load linux kernel image from first partition of sdcard (which is supposed to be fat32 formatted) to memory location starting from 82000000
- after linux kernel image is loaded from sdcard you fire up bootm command at bootloader (maybe you have to configure some kernel params, I don't know, never tried it)

That's how it should work in theory, never tried it...

Hi Kongwashere,
I have the same device with the same problem.
In my case, I just remove keyboard dongle connected to all USB ports and the Wifi will be enabled and start working in seconds. I guess there shall be somekind of conflict between my Logitech K400 keyboard and the Wifi.

Hi I installed the new software from Stane and everything is OK no problems with WiFi or other. The only thing I noticed is that I can now install XBMC, I do not know why, yet have not figured. Initially, there were problems with the TV Oćko (Czech Republic) but it was fine.
Stane great respect for the good job and that he has not forgotten the old platform c03ref so that our toys are still very useful and the funny money they're supposed to. Regards

I get the same error when trying to flash my Refee box. Messed up my previous configuration when installing busybox. I was running a firmware called ICS.MBX.20120706 which was preinstalled. I cannot seem to find this firmware on the website of the manufacturer. I also don't get any replies on my emails requesting a link to the newest firmware.

I see. I think that one isn't for f16ref.

I suppose this thread is for your device.

Nice. Thanks. So basically there's some leads on the board. Any ideas on how to just replace the android on the NAND memory? Same concept I suppose.

Anything on adding more wireless support? I'd really like to use my USB dongle. If not, is there somewhere I could find instructions on how to do it?

chou1229 and Stane: Thank you! Wifi now works on the C30ref. It is a compatibility issue with the wireless keyboard. Now I just need XBMC

Unhappy Atv-102

I found my device is this one ATV-102
bluetooth speaker|shenzhen visson technology|card speaker|cheap|good quality|portable speaker

notice it only has CVBS composite output (not YPbPr) to old tv sets (besides HDMI of course) and 4gb internal RAM.
Anyway, link to firmware is unavailable, so I contacted Vission thru email.

here's the full specs


Latest stane's f16ref leaves device bricked. Any advice on how to unbrick?

Are you sure that your device is ATV-108 rev2 (f16ref, or ATV-102 as claimed on Visson page)?

CVBS output does have ATV-101 also and it's c03ref device, pretty much similar to ATV-108 c03ref.

Does your device have USB-OTG connector on back side or any other connectors (mic in) or it looks exactly the same as on Visson's page (ATV-102)?
