    Just got this AmLogic based tv box, manufactured by Mesada model FV3, rebranded also in many other ways.
    It's running android version 2.3.4 with November updated firmware.
    No root access, gingerbreak and superoneclick do not work.
    I'll soon post a raw unboxing video and some initial impressions.
    First look: Clean interface, big icons and fonts, re-sizable display can fully fit TV, factory installed market not latest version but all apps and games shows and are downloadable, essential apps installed and some more on internal flash such as skype, flash 10,3 ecc.

    Ftp link is - name: overseas password: overseas
    Download user manual, specifications, firmware, upgrading instructions etc.
    Thanks to "alphaecho" for the link

    Hi Pluto63,

    I recently ordered one piece of mesada FV-3 from China but its on transit yet. I would be glad if you can tell me if it does or not video calls with voice over Skype. Did you already tested it?

    Yes Skype works fine with the preinstalled version, do not upgrade to new ones, this also goes to YouTube apk and others.

    I have my Flexiview FV-3 now for 2 weeks, it was O.K. for 1 week, Then WiFi stopt working.
    Tried a factory reset already but no change, if I try to activate WiFi it doesn't start searching, I only see error.
    I also tried the upgrade from Pippopelo but I don't think that workt at all for me, a green LED flashing for more then 20 minutes, I think nothing happend.
    The box is still working but I don,t have a ethernetconnection near my TV so I want to use Wifi.
    I have send an E-mail to Mesada for help, but no answer, its weekend.
    Can anybody at this forum give me an advice or tip.
