Quick answer: uinput is included in my roms, but hold on for hour or two, new release for c03ref (not beta) will be uploaded... chages:

- 1080 issue - fixed
- sdcard issue - fixed
- 3G dongle support - added for most of Huawei 3g USB modules with huge APN list preinstalled
- Newer version of Flash (released by Amlogic)
- New kernel sources, speed improvements, antutu benchmark about 2400 (on 720p)

Same problem as before...built in mic and mic port on c03ref don't work, but microphone on usb webcam does. is there any chance of getting the built in microphone working again? netflix is also still a no go. i think its time to abandon the c03ref version. no support anywhere. barely any support from amlogic for their newer stuff. i've been using allot of allwinner A10 stuff lately and it works pretty good.

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)?
Hi stane,
Devicechecker reported as f16ref.
On the back side there's only power/reset/CVBS LAN/hdmi and LAN connectors.
exactly as this one:
http://www.vissontech.com/imageRepository/1a4acfa7-e242-42a2-817c-f71ec6302e1a.jpg

I made a contact thru facebook with someone from Vission saying their website "was building"
On 2.4G wireless mouse|keyboard|remote control|RC|motion remote you can now see VC-ATV-102 model nš on frontpage. That is exactly my device.

Hi,

at the moment there is no update for M3 board (f16ref). These days I was working on c03ref 'cause of issues with sdcard, flickering, 1080 resolution...

Now will move to f16ref, usb needs fixing and some other stuff...

Hi everyone!! Sorry for my bad english.
I brick my Visson ATV-108 rev.1 (c03ref). I try recover with SD, but device not enter in recovery mode. I solder pinouts for TTL on PCB. And i have this on boot in console:
Code:
0x00009880
0x01110fff


RSLR0=00000249 RDGR0=00000055
Stage 00 Result 00000000
Stage 01 Result 00000000
Stage 02 Result 00000000Systemp Started
0x12345678
Boot From SPI0x12345678
Any ideas? Is it 100% brick?
!!! I'm unbrick my device, I would write a guide, but my English is very bad and I'm very lazy. If anyone has a similar situation arises, please contact me in PM, we will learn how to restore the device. !!!

Lightbulb FB Group?

Just as a side note, anyone finds interesting creating a FB Group just for Vission ATV 10x Android TV boxes?

How-to's and guides (and even firmware's) could be placed there, with the help and contribution from the community. Please give feedback.

I've followed other groups (android phone ROM's) and helped me a lot getting problems solved...

Default Note - one more time

!!! Please read !!!

I'm developing firmwares for Visson products, ATV-108 c03ref and ATV-108 f16ref. c03ref and f16ref stands for platform used in device (c03ref - Amlogic MBX platform based on AML8726M chipset; f16ref - Amlogic MBX platform based on AML8726M3 chipset).

Every manufacturer of Android TV boxes can use different implementation of bootloader, different hardware, different partitioning... and my firmware is primary for Visson products mentioned above. It might work with other devices too, but I'm not supporting other devices and I'm sorry, but I cannot make and will not make firmwares for devices which I don't have.

Visson devices uses wifi module based on Realtek 8192CU wifi chipset. Driver for that chipset is installed by firmware. It's loadable kernel module driver (/system/lib/8192cu.ko and for f16ref also cfg80211.ko file). Amlogic ICS source tree is made that way it's not so simple when replacing wifi module driver because it's built by kernel and loaded by android system with much more config included than just insmod drivername.

I can assist you how to do some things, I can give you some pointers what to do in certain situations and I will try to help you to unbrick your device if bricked.

But you guys as users should be also be careful, if firmware is for c03ref then you cannot install it on f16ref. Also, I mentioned it cpl of times in this thread, if you are installing my firmware to any other device than Visson, use your original u-boot-aml-ucl.bin file instead of one packed with my fw... that way there are small chances you will brick your bootloader which is pretty hard to fix (at least on Visson f16ref device).

Hi,

It's included in new_patch.zip file. If your system can't see it, something went wrong during firmware installation. Flash player on my download page is old one... Will replace it with new version, but for now it's old one

Is there anyway to apply new_patch.zip file ? Because everything else works like a charm, so not sure how to check if that zip file was installed or not...

(Or maybe get a copy of the latests Flash to install it manually)

By the way, if new_patch install fails, what shoud I be also missing that I'm not aware ?

Thanks.

Hi there stane!
Good news: latest f16ref worked like a charm on my 'apparently' ATV-102 device!!! Don't know why Vission calls it that way.

Used a 256Mb SDCard!
New logo is 'v.play'. Will be giving feedback as parts are tested.
Thanks for great work, one beer under way!!!

Stane;

Your work gets better and better. I'm not too good with android building but am pretty good with linux. Is there some advice you could give on how to add Ralink RT2870sta support or add it in to yours?

Hi stane
I am not able to use 3g dongle (Huawei e171) not even able to access apn list. When I connect the dongle the status bar shows "no Internet connection" also when I view the apn list it is completely blank or when I save a new apn it does saves but again starts showing the blank page.

Do you have mobile signal indicator on statusbar when you plug in your huawei dongle?

Another issue I forgot to mention... if sim is set to request PIN, it will not work. Workaround is to disable PIN request in some cellphone and put simcard back in 3g dongle.

Please check that and see if it works. 3G dongle support only tested and working with Huawei E1752, but should work with other huawei's dongles as well.

Hi Stane,

Will there be any fixes to DVB-T dongle (freezes during channel scanning) and wireless keyboard/mouse (stop working after a while ) ?

Tested the latest "20120826_Android_ICS-ATV-108-c03ref" firmware but the above 2 issues still unresolved.

Thanks!

I do get the signal indicator on the status bar but it seems it has zero signal strength (because there is a small cross on the signal indicator)

The PIN request is already disabled as I never use them.

Downloading the archive now, but basically I can't do anything about browser crashes or any other firmware bugs. To be able to do that I need actual device and board specification (bootloader...). Whoever compiled this code, downloaded corrupted amlogic sources released 20120710 (branch ics-amlogic-0702). Amlogic servers had some problems awhile ago.

Anyway, it should be AML8726M3 based Refee M6 product...

Hi to all, I am just new to this forum and have no idea if this will end up being read. I recently purchased a VS-ATV-102 from a China supplier and found it difficult to operate, found this excellent website and through trial and error managed to find out the model and other details, the supplier eventually pointed me to the new download of stane1983 firmware, BIG THANKS, but still experiencing major problems. Not sure how to post directly to stane1983, would welcome guidance. Regards to all.

Hi, can someone help me identify what could be the problem why new_patch.zip file is not being applied ? Everything works like a charm, but I was missing flash installation and maybe other updates that were on that update....

Maybe I'm not doing something I should ? I just did the button trick to update (twice as recommended for this firmware) and after the firmware is installed I just did a clear cache and factory/defaults (I did this after the firmware update) and then, just reboot.

Should I have selected Apply Update or something else from the menu ? Or maybe do the factory reset and clear cache before applying the firmware ?

By the way, if new_patch install fails, what shoud I be also missing that I'm not aware ?

Thanks.

Hi stane1983, lot's of looking at different forums let me find this one and days and days of reading until I found something that looked like my android 4 media player and your posts seem to be giving answers rather than asking for help so I just thought that I could ask for your help. I am just finding my way around the forum and no doubt will make lot's of mistakes. Sorry about the direct contact, as at time I was not sure of how to make a post.
Kind Regards

Don't do the factory reset. That action erases the files installed by new_patch

MartinCC, in which update procedure you read that you need to do wipe data/factory reset after you install firmware?

Superuser, YouTube, Flash... that's all installed in userspace area. If you do factory reset, your userspace partition will be formatted and all data on it will be erased.

Mmmm.... interesting... So what now ? Do I reflash the firmware or is there another way to only do the update of those apps ?

By the way, before flash is it good to do a reset and wipe de cache at least ?

Thanks Stane.

Hi, upgrade procedure wipes data and cache partitions. If you don't want to reinstall firmware, open new_patch.zip and extract apk files that are in /data/app folder inside new_patch.zip file. Put it to usb stick or sdcard and install them with AppInstaller.

Stane1983

Hi stane1983,

congratulation for Your firmware and for offering help to this community.

I've bought a GV-13, old version (c03ref). This is a clone of URAKU_T1
and looking on Your firmware, must be a ATV-108 (c03ref) clone too.

I've wood like to flash Your firmware on GV-13, but before I want to be sure that it work.
This may will help other users too (who has the GV-13 or Uraku T1).

1) The u-boot-aml-ucl.bin file of Yours is the same as for GV-13 (the size is equal and looking with a hex editor, there aren't any difference between them), but on the original firmware, that I have, it is called ubootwhole.img and is is located on the update.zip (c03ref120330m1_40p_120510_4ddr.zip, to be exact).

2)You do not flash the uboot (u-boot-aml-ucl.bin) with your firmware? Is that right?
Because on Your updater-script (update.zip\META-INF\com\google\android\), I can't find anything about.
On the original firmaware the updater-script is flashing the uboot, as on the following code of original updater-script:
...
format("mtd", "MTD", "ubootwhole", "0");
write_raw_image(package_extract_file("ubootwhole.i mg"), "ubootwhole");
...

3) Can You please post "cat /proc/mtd" of ATV-108, so I can control mine?
On my box (GV-13), the flash partitioning look like that:
#cat /proc/mtd" of ATV-108
dev: size erasesize name
mtd0: 01000000 00200000 "aml_logo"
mtd1: 01000000 00200000 "recovery"
mtd2: 01400000 00200000 "boot"
mtd3: 20000000 00200000 "system"
mtd4: 0c000000 00200000 "cache"
mtd5: d0400000 00200000 "userdata"
mtd6: 00002000 00001000 "ubootenv"
mtd7: 00200000 00001000 "ubootwhole"

4) And the filesystem mounting?
On GV-13 is:
#mount
rootfs / rootfs rw 0 0
tmpfs /dev tmpfs rw,nosuid,relatime,mode=755 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts rw,relatime,mode=600,ptmxmode=000 0 0

I will see for differencies on the GV-13 init.rc with Yours (havn't the time too look on the boot.img of the firmwares).

Atached to this mail You will find GV-13 files (updater-script, ubootwhole.img and init.rc)

Thank You in advance for Your eventually answers,

Hi,

I don't have c03ref by me right now, but...

uboot is flashed by recovery image (uImage_recovery), not by updater-script and it's flashed to SPI chip.

Partitioning is the same. I cannot post mount output 'cause I don't have access to c03ref device right now.

If your device contains less than 1Gb internal storage, do not flash my firmware to it, firmware doesn't support nand chips < 1Gb.

Regards

Default Flashing firmware ATV-108 (c03ref) to GV-13 (c03ref) ...

Thanks for the answer Stane.

GV-13 have 4GB of NAND flash, so that isn't a problem.

Only the GV-13 uImage_recovery is of 2122KB and Yours 4394KB.

Do You think that I must control something else before flashing (or if You need the whole firmware to take a look, I can upload on somewhere).


Thanks,
Shklifo

Try to do what I did with my TV Box recognized as c03ref in the same situation:
I also applied the last upgrade with the same sad result. All attempts to continue the 2nd pass from SD Card appeared to be useless. Just green light and no changes in more than 1 hour. Then I assumed that the SD issue might not been fixed for my model and the 2-nd pass now cannot find files for upgrade. I checked the card and found that the files from there had been deleted. I wrote them again, but it did not help. The box remained in coma. Then I inserted the SD Card with firmware upgrade to USB Card Reader, connected the reader via USB and restarted the device. It took around 15 minutes after restart and I saw the "android" sign which later on was followed by system start and setup.
Try to do the same and write back here if it will also help you in order to inform the others who might also have had some issues with the upgrade.
My device initially had pre-installed Android 2.3 system and it was slow and always failed to read properly some video formats and all *.iso files. It also failed to accept installation opf most of software.
Now it is fliying like a jet fighter, it is reading everything, it is accepting installation of any software, but it does not want to see SD Card and the remote control is working only for switching on and off. The rest of buttons are not working, but I am using a wireless mouse and a USB Hard Drive and I am happy with the results of the upgrade.

ONE NOTE - this is true for no-Visson models and it will be also useful to insert both SD Card and UDisk with the same content while updating. Upon restarting some models may load recovery from SD Card.

Dear Stane, thanks a lot for your great firmware! I bought this box in order to use it as a media player and it is working perfectly for that task now reading even *.iso files and decoding very fast any videos. Nevertheless I`ll be even more grateful if you will give a hint how to initiate back the SD card and the remote in its full functionality. Maybe, I will have to download 2.3 firmware and to install some drivers from there? If it is not possible, just forget it. I will never neither downgrade for 2.3 nor install the official Android 4 firmware because yours is a masterpiece - fast and friendly except some minor (for me) bugs.

Hi,

Yes, I saw that there are no visible menuitems in that dialog. Do you have IR remote? If so, when you're in position to save access point, push Menu button on your IR remote. Menu with Save option will pop up in the right bottom side of screen.

I am just finding my way around the forum and no doubt will make lot's of mistakes. Sorry about the direct contact, as at time I was not sure of how to make a post.
Kind Regards
Hi stane1983, Had a chance to play with the new software update, both from the supplier and from you. Your software works better in that it is more stable, but still my original problem remains where any connection to my Lan makes my modem go loopy after about a minute and I loose my broadband. The new software also kills my WiFi, it just sits there with a "switching on WiFi" message. I can play all my video files from a USB drive or stick but can't check the Lan part until I find out if I have faulty hardware or software and find a repair or replacement. At the moment the box is dead, I tried to update with an empty SD card and now nothing happens when I switch on, just the red and blue leds. Would that cause the problem or do you think the box may have died.
PS I changed the info on the previous post to VS-ATV-102, my mistake,
I think I asked this before, but is there a difference between a 102 and a 108?
Thanks again for all your help
Kind regards
