    huh ?? Smash it :D
    You don't need to make a hard reset on the remote control .. Just buy another remote control . maybe a keyboard , mouse and connect them to the ATv ..
    Or smash it into the wall :D

    Thank you.

    The whole document would be great as the online translator seems to miss out on or misinterprets some critical points making them counterintuative.

    Hi guys,

    I also have a briked ATV2000 (full story available in whirlpool forum ;-).

    I ordered a USB to 3.3V UART/232/TTY/serial "cable" with FTDI chipset from ebay and will try to unbrick mid of january next year using "putty" software and the KDG team instructions.

    It seems that quite a few people have bricked ATV1000/ATV2000 units and I hope soon there will be many people with unbricked units!

    Even if the video title is about an "Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Firmware Preview" for ATV series, the last frames of video show a new device: the "Enjoy TV Nano 3"!
    It means they are going to launch a new one that supports it ...

    TE=fcatrin;3687410]I can translate it for you, if you want. I'm a native spanish speaker who understands Linux and technical docs :-D[/QUOTE]

    I think that contact is the best solution, they will help you on this, perhaps will send you a serial adapter for updating the box.

I waited about 20 minutes - but the green bar stop. it froze completely. I disconnected the unit from the power supply and again on power supply .. and oh my god my AVT1000 died ((Now I know are always just a white screen. and this is no longer wanted to work in any mode. perhaps you have a tip for me - I can restore the device to a help computer or even any way?

    have devloped a technique to unbrick a thw atv 300, 1000 and 2000.

    Basically it is reprograming or reviving uboot and some other stuff via the unit's ttl interface.

    I am in the process of trying to unbrick an ATV 1000 clone

    Now the problem is that it requires a RS232 to ttl converter to get the info from a PC to the TV Box. I got one from China. The next problem is the connectors for the ttl interface on the TV Box. They are too small for the ones supplied with the RS 232 to TTL converter. It can accommodate three of the four connectors (Rx, Tx and VCC) and I have found a common earth point for the fourth.

    The next problem is a PC with an RS232 output. They are not common on newer PCs. I have two old laptops with RS232 outputs but one would not boot and the other only has a 3.5" floppy and no USB port. I do not have a way of transferring the program to it as no other computer I have operational has a a 3.5" floppy drive.

    As a result I am currently building up a new very basic PC from bits and pieces I have laying around.

    Then I think I have to install and learn a bit of Linux to be able to use it.

    And finally the instructions are in Spanish and require some deep thought when interpreting the English translation.

    I would love to trade experiences with anyone else trying to unbrick their units.

    Any special TTL is no needed! Simple ttl cable on RS232 with TX, RX and GND.
    For ATV1000 or ATV2000 you need only basic spi_M3_512.bin - that file we need form Geniatech support. But i think you can use spi from one spi update package.

    Remember You do it at their own risk! I recommend that only to people with experience with linux or router developer.

    Recovery procedure is here (I use it on bricked ATV300).
    Serial manual.pdf - - document sharing - download

    1st clear the nand, 2nd Load spi and 3rd load update image. Done.

    Thank you for this.

    I will give it a go when I get my PS with RS232 output built (I have had to order a compatible power supply)

    one thing i noticed with 11 30 fw, that once u adjust the screen position, after reboot it shifts rigth-down by 2 moves. hope in the next update, the screen position will stay as selected.
    and another thing is some app in market are not there. i can easily install them on my tablet, but can not see them on market. i ll have to look at that guite posted earlier on somewhere about this

    This is good news that will put the gadget ATV Android 4.x

    But it may not have yet fully braced version 2.3.4 and are jumping 4.x without the prior apuntular above.

    I think a big mistake. Not take out the version 4.x (this is fine), but it seems a great mistake that is not finished developing the previous 2.3.4
