ATV495MAX Firmware

Recommended Posts

ATV495MAX Firmware

The only firmware currently available for the ATV495MAX is the beta patch for Netflix coming in at about 60 MB.  A full set of firmware should weigh in at close to 512MB.

Could you please post actual firmware for the ATV495MAX (any version would do). You seem to have it for other devices, but not for the ATV495MAX.

I bought an ematic Netflix box. It's got android tv9. Google certified and also Netflix certified. 

Surprisingly has the same specs as my 495max, yet running Android 9 and certified for all the stuff a person needs. 

Stopped wasting my time with this brand though. They were once very good--and had regular updates and actually cared about aftersales. I have had 3 of there boxes in the past. The 495 max is sure to be my last. 

No support, no updates, no development.

It will install the FW, it usually takes about 5-10 minutes, then it should boot you back to the home screen.

It is recommended to do a factory reset afterward just make sure all the correct files are installed, and no extra or duplicate files interfere with the OS.

Does the firmware contain a working version of Netflix? I loaded the beta patch. Netflix works but as time goes on the Netflix app starts giving problems and audio/video sync issues.
