About This File

ATV 1900 PRO upgrade to Android version 7.1

This is a beta version as we had to build this ourselves without the normal support through regular channels. This will not move passed BETA, so you may encounter minor issues with certain programs, but we currently have no known issues at the moment.

Difficulty level - 3/5

This will not work on the 1900. It is meant for the 1900 PRO.

 

Notable features:

-Updates from Android 5.1 to 7.1 for better support.
- New Home Screen
- Added Dual Boot Option to Libreelec
- Added Super User Support
 

****DO NOT ATTEMPT TO UPGRADE TO 7.1 THROUGH THE OPERATING SYSTEM. IT WILL POTENTIALLY BRICK YOUR DEVICE***

This update must be done using the below method only. 

NOTE: Processing this Firmware upgrade will wipe all your Data 

How to process the steps:

1. Download the zip file
2. Format your MicroSD Card to FAT32
3. Unzip the files into a folder on your computer before moving to step 4.
4. Drag and drop files from Unzip folder to root of your MicroSD card.  (unzip files to the main part of the card, not in a folder)
5. Insert sd card with files into the 1900 PRO SD card slot
6. Connect HDMI, turn the TV on
7. Hold the Reset button at the back. 
8. Hookup power while holding down Reset, via pin
9. Hold for 15 seconds

10. The front side lights should blink red to green repeatedly if the upgrade process has started properly.

you will see the android guy moving, give it 5 -10 minutes and it should bring you to the 7.1 setup screen.

I'd sure like to find out from the support team how this issue will be resolved. I've owned my 1900Pro for only about a year and now its a paperweight.
I've looked into the AMLogic Flash tool, countless youtube videos and finally USB Burning tool. All of which requires an actual ROM to flash it back to life. Which for the life of me cannot find anywhere.  So I am not even sure the USB Burning tool would work as there doesn't seem to be a defined USB port for flashing. None of the SD card updates (or backdates for that matter) work, I've spent probably a week worth of time trying to resolve this.
Is it possible to send it to get it fixed?
I posted 3 weeks ago and nothing.

Hi. I also started to have the "no hdmi output" issue. Mine also seems bricked now! I have tried to install the latest firmware from this post... tried the factory reset about 100x. About 3 times the front LEDs flashed, but then nothing (more than 30 minutes)... and still nothing, bit a light blue screen on the tv.  Now every time I plug it into the power the green light comes on - with occasionally the LAN lights flashing on and off... but further nothing at all.

Before I now waste more time on this, do I need to replace the unit?

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.

Good evening,

I tried to perform the update tonight, following the instructions provided. When I plugged back the power cord, while holding the Reset button for at least 15 seconds, the Lollipop picture appeared, followed by a DOS window, where I was ask to take action. My options were something like this:

Reboot system now

Apply update from EXT

apply update from cache 

apply update from Data

wipe data/factory reset

wipe cache partition

burn the keys

can anyone tell me what I should do from here?

Support would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot.
