Will the ATV 495 Max ever receive Pie or even Oreo in the near future?

Regards 

Yes, it's still in beta testing, however, the update is available at the Geniatech online store but I'm not allowed to share the link of the file but the link of the store, use it at your own risk: https://shop.geniatech.us

Has anyone tried this Beta Android9/Pie yet? Does it work, or should I wait before I brick my device? Thanks

Don't install it because it's still in beta, take a look at this video:

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)

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.

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 

  1. Untick "CheckImg" option under "File" on the tool
  2. Import the firmware
  3. Proceed flashing as per normal process
  4. The process will get stuck at 98% and eventually FAIL . You will get a " UBOOT/Partition system/Verify patition/Error".....Don't be alarmed

  6. Click "Stop"
  7. Unplug USB cable and Unplug power cable
  8. Connect a keyboard on one of the USB ports
  9. 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)
  10. Keep the button down, the front LED will turn from RED to BLUE , only then release it
  11. You will be dropped into the Android Recovery screen

  13. Select "Wipe data/factory reset" and press enter
  14. Select "Yes" and press enter
  15. Select "Reboot system now"
  16. Bob's your Uncle!!!

Nice!, very nice!, this deserves a separate post so everybody can learn how to burn the firmware in their own devices in case it bricks, I'm going to copy and paste your instructions, thank you!!!!.
