Default amlogic m3 help

hi i brought a cheap box xbmc is onit runs well , but the android part is crap and fedup with some chinese writing.

its a amlogic m3 1ghz 4gb ram has 3 usb,s hdmi ,ethernet sdcard,wifi built in, looks like same as g-box type. says mbx f16ref on board

but i have looked inside and havent found a reset button so how do i go about playing with firmware on this and putting a better android on.

because ive read everywhere and they keep mentioning a rest button but on back of mine there is a rest hole but on the board that hole aligns with a capacitor so poking sumit in here would be not a good idea lol.

pics stretched to fit.

can anyone please help me.

Amlogic usually provides 3.3V TTL interface, GND, RX, TX, 3.3V. Look for these 4 pins (or placeholders, they're not soldered )
