    To evilzipic
    Give me more detail about your box. I think my castom firmware is for you. It was a long way for me to make a castom ROM. I tried many original firmwares till found I need.
    Sorry my english, I am from Russia.

    Hi friend,
    i saw from pictures, your box is the same of mine!! So you can use maxq r7 firmware.. I'm also working at my personal modded version of the firmware.. I will pubblish soon :)

    Take Sysinfo.apk from market and you will see your "build" and FW. Then it will be possible to decide which one for you as a base fw - maxq r7 or my fw. I tried maxq r7. It does not work. My vendor fw roots only with clamel alternative tool.

    There are two kind of MaxQ R7. One is with 2 USB, other with 3. They gave the fw only for last one and it is not sutable for the first..
    Is it your logo R-box or G-box?

    Thank you Clamel.
    I used your guide in italian some days ago to repack my Uniuga U574 fw for 2 USB ports box. I used alternative Tool software. This u574 fw is different from yours.
    Now Unuiga sells boxes on the same base U574 fw with Android 4.0. I shall try to get the fw some later.

    I do not think you can do this as yet.

    Go to the MaxQ website and download their firmware update. It contains a utility to connect with the device USB port and then upgrade with clamelmod. It works very nicely and removes all the unnecessary clutter.

    if you read discusiion, you known what i not have cable (shipped to me, i wait)

    You can use any regular USB cable; must have two male ends.

    My model has 3 USB ports; it is GV-2.

    You don't need to root to see files on your NAS. Use an app called Skifta. Unbelievable finds everything

    :D Thank for manuals, unfortunately the English is very brief comparing to the Chinese manual (7 ps instead 21 p). ;)

    The box seems to be the same, but I think the one with opengl interface has the new ICS firmware.. I ask for it to my seller, but they told me it will be available in 2 months..
