    Hi can you tell me if can i use this stock firmware for M8s ?

  4. 1 danyrolux said:

    You can try if your M8S has Amlogic S812 CPU, but make a backup first and make sure to have the stock firmware, just in case.

When i want to install this update from the Android System Recovery screen (from SD or USB) i get the error “Can’t install this package (Mon Jun 15 15:39:08 CST 2015) over newer build (Mon Jul 13 18:46:21 CST 2015)” is there anyone who knows how to fix this.

    but i have seen online the m8s+ with android 4.4

  15. 1 Pietje said:

  16. 1 Tomas said:

    Does this update work on the M8S ???

    I have m8s+ box with ap6330. I was able to get the same firmware in the form of .img file from the acemax website.
    I flashed the image file using the Amlogic burning tool successfully but could not get past the android boot logo – bootloop.

    I was then able to recover from this bricked state by flashing back the Kit Kat image from acemax site.

    So then I used the zip file provided on this site by copying all the lollipop firmware files in the zip to a SD card.
    I tried to install the firmware using 2-methods: 1) OTA update from within Android 4.4 by selecting the lollipop update zip file from SD card 2) booting into recovery and then flashing the update zip file from SD card. This as well resulted in the same bootloop stuck at android logo.

    So I am wondering if this lollipop firmware zip file or img file is working on m8s+ OR I am missing something?

    I have the same issues as previous users : bricking my m8s+ with this firmware.

    So, I have always searched the solution for update to 5.1.

  21. 1 m8s+ user said:

    So it seems that of all the users who have tried this lollipop firmware and posted their feedback here – only 1 user has managed to get it installed on m8s without the drivers for wireless chip. Would be great if we can get those steps and if the same could work on m8s+

    Lollipop on Amlogic CPU S812 seems to be stable enough (at least for the functionalities I need) as I have it on Tronsmart MX-III plus box so I was hoping I could get Lollipop on this m8s+ box working as well but so far it has been a challenge and I think the current lollipop firmware just does not work or needs additional tweaking to get it to work on m8s+ which hopefully somebody can share.

    Freaktab forums has one user stating work in progress lollipop image for m8s+ but not sure when he would be able to post it.

    Anyone tried this on MINIX neo x8h plus? I’m tempted to try this if it works. Has same specs more or less.

  23. 1 kdallas said:

    Beware that the M8S+ firmware for lollipop appears to be “beta” quality. Unless you *really* need a feature from 5.1 — I’d recommend sticking with 4.4 for the time being.

    Has anyone had any success using an Xbox 360 controller on their M8S+ device? I was thinking of trying 5.1 for that alone, but perhaps there is another way.

  24. 1 ice said:

    I both m8s+ last week package box says its m8s+ but in startup and about device its m8s only? How can I know if I got the gigabit version? Im on kitkat version. Also have anyone try to use BT headset? When I pair my BT headset and open apps like youtube the box restart itself.

  25. 1 Dominic said:

    Hi I was able to install it and everything worked great. Then while I was in Kodi it shut down. Now it is stuck on the logo screen. I tried to reset it using toothpick in the AV slot with sd card and without. Tried everything but my box remains stuck at the logo. It appears to be bricked. Any suggestions??

    I have tried to install this update, but when im in the Android system recovery i get the message

    ‘Can’t install this package (Mon Jun 15 15:39:08 CST 2015) over newer build (Tue Oct 20 10:44:03 CST 2015).

    Is there a newer update for this, like after October 20th?

  32. 1 louismx3 said:

    Hi guys, do you know if there is any new firmware with Lollipop Android, for M8S? Thanks

  33. 1 louismx3 said:

    Hi again guys, i connect the box to my yamaha home cinema amplifier and it doesnt read the DTS-HD and TrueHD. Should I change something in the settings of the android box in order to work? Thanks

  34. 1 Mido67 said:

    For DTS HD and True HD u should use Kodi’s settings by enabling for HDMI because spdif doesn’t support it. Then HDMI output linked with HDMI input of amplifier and the HDMI output from amplifier to HDMI input of the TV. That’s it. 🙂
