  1. @Zak2020 you can contact Mygica or Geniatech directly to request for that file, don't waste your time in this forum.
  2. I don't have the file but you can search for mygica atv495max original firmware over the internet, that's how I found it in the new zealand mygica website but the link was replaced by the buggy 9 firmware instead.
  3. I haven't found another link at the moment.
  4. Android TV 10 was just released, guess it will never arrive to this device since 9 is still in beta, how many months will it take? the hardware inside the 495Max is getting old quickly, by next year, new devices will arrive with at least S905X2: https://www.androidpolice.com/2019/12/10/google-releases-android-tv-10-fulfilling-promise-for-2019-rollout/

  7. It's not perfect (it lacks an ethernet port, it has only 8GB of internal storage and it has only one usb 2.0 port) but it does the job done, plus, it gets updates more frequently.
  8. That's an issue plaguing every Android TV device, I have a Xiaomi Mi Box S and a Mecool KM9 Pro and it's the same problem, apparently it's a bug with some Android TV core update, a fix is supposed to be coming soon.

  10. 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
  11. 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.

  13. Untick "CheckImg" option under "File" menu and try again.

  21. 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.
  22. Don't install it because it's still in beta, take a look at this video:
  23. Looks like Geniatech canceled this new device, it's still appears in the website but not as an Android TV device certified by Google but as a regular Android Box.
  24. That' the problem, neither both options are working, Geniatech/MyGica must address this issues ASAP.
