ATV1900 Pro vs ATV1900ac

4 posts in this topic

I have been reading the forums for a while now and find myself more confused than before. There seems to be a lack of clarity here. I would ask that someone from MyGica please answer clearly my questions. For the sake of clarity.......

1) Is the firmware for the ATV1900Pro the same as for the ATV1900ac?

2) My ATV1900Pro list the following info:  Device name ATV495Pro 16G:  Model ATV495Pro 16Gb:  Version 5.1.1:  Kernel ljw@ubl124 #2 Mon Jul 25 09:45:29 HKT2016:  Build V001m901_20161013. What is the correct update to the firmware to resolve the screen, remote, issues?

3) My AVT1900Pro reports that it is not rooted. I wish to modify the hosts file in order to complete some specialty set ups for my home network, pvr, ota antenna etc etc. How to I root the device or what is the proper firmware update to solve this?

I have always enjoyed my other MyGica products, however, I have always found the forums difficult to navigate to find the proper answers to my questions. I would appreciate some clarity in your answer.

Thanks you.

Thanks Spinnersp. Clarity! lol.

That being said, the downloads section does list a 20161125 update for the ATV1900Pro. I assume it post dates the 20161013 build, so i'm going to try it. (wish me luck)

see here:

 

Also I have since found a root update:  update_Mygica_ATV1900AC_5.1_root_patch but it states the 1900ac so I am not going to try that yet. I'll wait for someone from MyGica to reply. It looks to me like the 1900Pro, 1900ac, and the 495Pro all have the same chipset, so it might work, maybe, who knows.

Thanks again.

The 1900P/495P use the same chipset, and therefore the same firmware/software

The 1900AC uses a different chipset, and therefore different firmware/software.

PLEASE DO NOT USE 1900AC SOFTWARE ON THE 495P/1900P

 

 

I have attached the correct Root Patch file for the 495P/1900P to this post.
