Video: How to easily flash new stock firmware on Rikomagic MK68 TV Box

Posted in Oct 12, 2015 in Tutorials, TV Boxes, 1 comment

Rikomagic MK68 is a perfect fully equipped Mini PC with Android Lollipop 5.1 as operating system.


1. Download the latest stock firmware from here and extract the archive on your desktop.
2. Second, be ready to connect Rikomagic MK68 TV Box to your computer. Prepare an USB cable (male USB to male USB cable); insert one USB to computer USB port. Prepare also a thin metal stick; press the reset button from the bottom side, like in the video below. Don’t loose the stick, at same time, insert the second USB to the unit USB OTG port, in the rear side. After 3-5 seconds, loose the stick.
3. Install driver using RK Driver Assistant.
4. Burn the image with Rockchip Batch Tool v1.8 using ‘Restore’ button.

This process will take about 4 minutes, please wait patiently, during recovery/upgrade, don’t remove the USB cable and don’t power off during updating or recovering. First reboot of the unit after recovery/update will take more long time than usual, and even occur some lag issue, it’s normal since internal apk files need to be decompressed and occupy RAM, after 5 minutes, then system will be running well. So don’t worry about that.
