    Hi guys….

    When I extracted I get 2 files…

    a .zip and a .img…

    What is the img file used for and is it a duplicate of the .zip just in a diff format for say… burning to a USB?

    Both file sizes are very similar.

    Please help thanks!

    The .img file is usually used to be flashed from PC, the .zip file is flashed from SD card or internal storage.

    Hey Dave, I had the same problem using USB Burning Tool where firmware loading failed at 3%. What worked for me was to keep the reset button pressed while uploading the firmware, at least past the 6% mark. Give this a shot.

    ION, I am looking for the original firmware and ROM for my M8S (Armlogic S812 AP6330 2GB RAM Mali 450 GPU Quadcore. The versions I have found keep freezing while running Kodi 🙁
