  2. Of course I answered point 1: By the look of things the ATV495Max won't receive the certification anytime soon, there is however a Netflix program called "Hailstorm" which should accelerate that process but I haven't seen or heard any news about it: https://medium.com/@NetflixTechBlog/hailstorm-the-netflix-scaling-solution-over-android-tv-fd169366f828
  3. Okay well that what you replied doesn't really answer point 1 as i knew that already but thanks for actually replying, so i will trash 495max boxes and go for the Ematic or the Xiaomi Mi Box as it looks like the 495max wont get Netflix certification. Pitty as they were good boxes when the beta netflix image did work but as of now they pretty useless to me.

  5. 1) The only certified Android TV boxes with Netflix certification are: - Nexus Player (discontinued) - CCC Air Stick 4K - Dish TV SmartVU X - Elsys SMARTY - Ematic Jetstream - Google ADT-1 (discontinued, only for developers) - JBL Link Bar - MarQ by Flipkart - Turbostream - Nvidia Shield TV - Pixela 4K Smart Tuner - Seiki - Android TV Dongle - Sharp Aquos AN-NP40 - Xiaomi Mi Box - Xiaomi Mi Box S Not all devices are available worldwide, the popular ones are the Nvidia Shield, the Jestream, the Mi Box and Mi Box S, if you wanna know more information about this and other Android TV devices and Televisions certified by Google, you may head to this website made by a developer not affiliated with Google: https://www.androidtv-guide.com 2) Yes, it has been in beta for quite some time but it's better to wait than to get a firmware not optimized for the hardware, for example, I currently own the Mecool KM9 Pro Classic and although the Android 9 Pie is snappy and fast, the Wi-Fi is a mess, it's buggy, slow, unstable, looks like they deployed the firmware without testing it enough.

  10. Last week
  11. 495Max netflix certification and Android 9 Update 1- I would just like to get an update and ask will the 495Max ever receive Netflix certification as there are other boxes coming into the market that are Netflix and Google certified on launch e.g. Ematic and the SmartVU SV10, i just dont understand that the 495Max meets all hardware requirements and its not Netflix certified, on top of that the netflix beta firmware that is suppose to be a fix makes netflix unusable now and is just giving errors upon tyring to stream a movie. 2- Android TV OS9 has been in beta testing for a while now and it was suppose to come out this year, this 2019 has 2 months left and we still have not seen any progress or update on this and when these boxes will receive the update or even if it will ever get the update. I am trying to keep my hopes up on this box as i have three of them in my house but as time goes by i am loosing faith and might be forced to switch to an alternative brand that has both certifications for google and netflix and has the latest Android TV OS on them. I have been keeping up with the forums on almost a daily basis but no new responses have been made and it is sort of like this box has died out fast.
  12. Box is garbage I cant install anything I try to install apps and I get a message saying download is not supported on this device yet on everything I have tried to download on it
  13. Untick "CheckImg" option under "File" menu and try again.

  15. Hi I tried this method but the burning tool returns a "parse burning image fail" error when trying to import the downloaded image file from your link in the tool.
  16. Hello. I downloaded the new firmware and copy on a micro SD as explained. Now I feel a little cold about doing the update. Most of the latest comments posted here are about bricked devices after doing it and it's been a while since a response had been posted from the support team. Is there anything that can be done if the device gets bricked? Thanks in advance.

    Another brick

    Another brick I am quite disappointed that MyGica will allow firmware that could potentially brick a perfectly working system. My system has been online for about three years. So I decided to update and found the latest beta version which I loaded onto a USB key. Low and behold, after navigating to the update file, I cannot update. Neither can I recover, despite using the original firmware. Basically, you are allowing untested software on your website which could potentially lead to issues. This is immoral and is worthy of further action! I would like you to fix this and make this idiot proof. It would be good if you could start by supporting legacy products properly so that you don't just have one of the better products, but also have a reputation for support.
  20. How to burn the original firmware on the ATV495Max the right way using Amlogic USB Burning Tool Thanks to @vicom, there is a way to burn the original firmware on the ATV495Max using the Amlogic USB Burning Tool without errors, here are the steps: 1) First, download the original Android TV 7.1 firmware from here: https://mega.nz/#!4agVjYzY!ZaKW09xrGjaHvveNKRH1FMhoqqz7_-PlF-GIG5pgHQM 2) Download the Amlogic USB Burning Tool from here: https://androiddatahost.com/wp-content/uploads/Amlogic_USB_Burning_Tool_v2.1.6.8.zip 3) Once you install the software, follow first the instructions on this YouTube video along with the instructions provided by @vicom: Untick "CheckImg" option under "File" on the tool Import the firmware Proceed flashing as per normal process The process will get stuck at 98% and eventually FAIL . You will get a " UBOOT/Partition system/Verify patition/Error".....Don't be alarmed Click "Stop" Unplug USB cable and Unplug power cable Connect a keyboard on one of the USB ports Hold down the button on the bottom side of the unit (reset button) and Plug back the power cable (keep the button still held down) Keep the button down, the front LED will turn from RED to BLUE , only then release it You will be dropped into the Android Recovery screen Select "Wipe data/factory reset" and press enter Select "Yes" and press enter Select "Reboot system now" Bob's your Uncle!!!

    Android TV 9

    I used the links you provided on a previous post to download both the "original" Android 7 firmware and USB Burning tool. The trick is to disable image checking So the steps I followed Untick "CheckImg" option under "File" on the tool Import the firmware Proceed flashing as per normal process The process will get stuck at 98% and eventually FAIL . You will get a " UBOOT/Partition system/Verify patition/Error".....Don't be alarmed Click "Stop" Unplug USB cable and Unplug power cable Connect a keyboard on one of the USB ports Hold down the button on the bottom side of the unit (reset button) and Plug back the power cable (keep the button still held down) Keep the button down, the front LED will turn from RED to BLUE , only then release it You will be dropped into the Android Recovery screen Select "Wipe data/factory reset" and press enter Select "Yes" and press enter Select "Reboot system now" Bob's your Uncle!!!

  28. Hey @vicom, how did you manage to use the Amlogic USB Burning Tool to inject the original firmware? can you please share your experience with us?, it's very important to know.

    Android TV 9

    Take @delacosta78's advice. Do not try the Beta 9.0 firmware. It will brick your device . I bravely went down that hole, however after some trial and error I managed to revive and rollback to Android 7 using Amlogic USB Burning Tool ... I couldn't return it since my 1 year warranty lapsed a month ago I again attempted the 9.0 firmware, and got it to work...busy testing some apps on it... No Netflix though 😢. So far these work (Showmax, DSTV Now, Kodi, Plex)
