    Hello a method to install the firmware svp thank you for your help

  • Kelemen Mihály

    The new update is good but not perfect! The new firmware kill every application, if you dont use. If you go to other application the new firmware immediately kill the olda application. I use a torrent client on my tv box. Now I dont able to downloading/seeding torrents and watching videos on the same time!

    But If you need this update, You need to make a wipe data on the recovery before the update. (this is clear every user data) then, dowload the zip file. Unzip and rename te IMG file to update.img, then copy the unzipped update.IMG filne in a SD card. Turn on your TV box, and wait until the android is working. If the you see the main screen insert the SD card, wait about 10-20 seconds, will appear window and show a question about the update. You need to choose the YES, and the android is start updateing.

    The update process is long. About 10-15-20 minutes. If you see the ANDROID logo on your TV more than 15 minutes turn off your TV box, and go to the recovery and make an other wipe data, then reboot your TV box and agin wait. The first booting process is long 10-15 minutes.

      I followed your instructions and all went OK until the ANDROID logo. I
      waited over 30 minutes. How do I get to recovery from this screen.

      • Audamus

    • COISO

    • Juan M Or

      Install firmware but as you say, close everything, I do not like anything, you will have the firmware rk322x_box-userdebug 5.1.1 LMY49F eng.wanghy.20160708.153240 test-keys?

      Thanks Kelemen – thanks to your instructions I was able to install the latest Android 6 Version which is on Gearbest’s site as noted by Zlatko below – link again here (click on the word “it” in the introduction under the Review Video to download !!). With the original firmware version my box was almost unusable – had to wait many seconds, sometimes minutes, before anything would be react. This version is much snappier than the one I had before. After installing the new firmware, since it is rooted I was able to uninstall the Kodi that came pre- installed (the pre-installed version seems to have been tweaked and had some limitations eg. couldn’t get a 16:9 stretch on the video) and put on the stock version of Kodi 17.3 KRYPTON direct from the Kodi Website (ARM V7A 32bit) . Then I installed Fusion etc. Note that this stock version would not install until I removed the pre-installed version first.
      All is well now with this box, which is usable at long last.

        There is no download on the page u mentioned up its just a page to order from gearbest.

    I am having problems with the lip-sync when I use Netfix with the SCISHION V88 TV Box Rockchip 3229 Quad Core. Does anybody know why or have any solutions?

    • Wojciech Augustyniak

      In resolution settings change framerate from 60 fps to 24.

      • John Vamvas

        Thank you. Where do I go to change my resolution settings?

        • Wojciech Augustyniak

          Settings > Screen > HDMI Mode

          • John Vamvas

            Any other ideas. That didn’t work. BTW I have no other problems with sync with any other app.

          • Sorin Calin

            I have problems with the pink screen issue on a Sony LCD from 2011. I was told the problems are solved on other TV boxes with new firmwares containing the option ”Force RGB output”. Are there any chances for V88 TV Box to resolve this issue?

          • José Barbosa

            Mine shows only 50 or 60

    • Audamus

      Me too but I have the same problem with another video app called IView. Let me know if you get a fix please.

  • Juan M Or

    Install firmware but as you say, close everything, I do not like anything, you will have the firmware rk322x_box-userdebug 5.1.1 LMY49F eng.wanghy.20160708.153240 test-keys
