    I have a non Ebox M8 that does not even power up. Unfortunately it is a cheap clone. Is it possible to to boot the unit through my computer and possibly upload a new system on it?

    Hello,

    I wouldn’t suggest to use EBox U-M8 unbrick guide for a non EBox purchase M8 as it can cause of permanent damage to device. We always suggest our users to look for genuine device not a cloned and can recommend some better device if you wish to know as the best selling T8 V3s. Also for your non working M8 device which is not working and with your sole decision you can use the U-M8 unbrick guide of EBox.

    Thank you. I may try it. Just got my RaspPi3 up and running, so I figure I have nothing to lose, though I may try to put a OpenElec image on instead. Will glance your products though. Any suggestions on a good simple and inexpensive box, only used for Kodi and nothing else. I like to have a box for travel, also, I have some friends that have been looking into cheap “Chinese” boxes, and I have warned them about clones and units with garbage repositories. Thanks.
