      Hello Sean, we have not got an issue with the T8 firmware download so what problem are you having?

      Thank you.

  1. Gadget Solutions

    Easy Instructions to follow.. Everything has worked perfectly. Thanks for the hard work

  2. Paul

    Tried new firmware update but still doesn’t boot into recovery. I done it last time with SD card n pin. Will I just do the same? I thought it wouldn’t have to be done this way from now on?

    • Entertainment Box

      Hello Paul, check your internet blockers then try again. Also make sure that you are on the latest firmware for the T8 before attempting the OTA, should be fine after.

      Thank you.

    hi,did as you said with the latest firmware on this page although i was pretty certain that was the one i had.i was proved right as i can still not get the ota updater to flash the box with the latest rom ver.20160317.just downloads ,installs but the box starts as per normal and when you go back on the ota updater the new rom update is still there .any help much appreciated.

    • Entertainment Box

      Hello David, if you think that your T8 firmware looks the same as your old firmware it may not of updated successfully. Try to do this manual SD card update and check your versions to see if it has updated to the Latest Firmware date of build 08/02/2016. This version will have the correct OTA updater installed but it does not work you can contact support if you are still within warranty.

      Thank you.

  4. Kevin Legg

    Thank you for replying, I’ve been through the “unbrick” process, box recovered, but when I completed all the updates, that’s when the box went into reboot looping. I’m going around in circles

    • Entertainment Box

      Hello Mr Legg, that is unfortunate for you. The update in itself may be the issue depending on what it is? I also advise you to try changing the power supply as it may be that.

      Thank you.

  5. Kevin Legg

    I’ve had one of these boxes since January 2015, worked without problem, I updated the firmware using the SD card method without issue, then updated again using the OTA method, again without issue. New menu screen loaded, then tried to connect to my router wifi and message “Serious problem has occured, need to reboot” click to continue, I clicked and the box rebooted to the spinning logo, then instead of loading the menus, rebooted again. The box is now in this continuous cycle that I can’t break out of. Can you help with this issue?

    I’m posting this again, not sure if the first post was delivered

    Think my T8 is bricked? I purchased my T8 V2 from Droidsticks around 16 months ago. Last night I decided to update the firmware for the first time from new. I watched the video on the T8 v2 firmware download page which shows the firmware update process.

    I first installed the gt.recovery.reboot.apk app onto my T8 box which went successfully.

    I downloaded the firmware from the T8 v2 link provided to my PC. I put a 1gb SD card into my PC and formatted it using Fat32. I then loaded the 5 files from the downloaded firmware onto the SD card. I explored the SD card to check all 5 files were present (I made sure the zip file remained unpacked).

    I then put the SD card into the SD slot in my T8. I powered down the T8 using the power button on the front, I then held the reset button in (I felt and herd the click of the reset button as I carefully pressed it in using a paper clip). Continually holding in the reset button I then pressed the power button again to power the T8 up again. I momentarily got a flash onscreen of the Amlogic Mail450 S802 logo I continued holding the reset button waiting to see the little green robot appear onscreen as my firmware was loading and updating, but nothing happened. I continued holding the reset button for nearly 10 mins thinking it should have started installing by now. My fingers were starting to ache by then from constantly holding the reset button. Nothing was happening so I let go of the reset button.

    I then tried turning the power button on (without holding the reset button in this time) but the box would not power up. I pulled the mains lead out from the back of the box, plugged it back in and tried to turn the box on again with the switch but still no joy. I removed the SD card USB adaptors, tried turning on and still no joy. All I am getting when I put in the power plug in the back of the box is the red glow round the power button and nothing else. If I press the button to try turn the box on all I get is a red glow around the optical port on the back of the box. Pressing the power switch again the red light of the power switch lights up and the glow around the optical port goes off. This goes round in circles with the box never powering up. I no longer get the blue glow on the power button or time on the front display or the word boot showing.

    Does it sound like the attempted firmware update has turned my T8 into a brick or is there any hope of recovering it? Could you let me know please?


    • Entertainment Box

      Hello RHJ, unfortunately you may of bricked your device whilst trying to update your firmware by the sounds of things. You can try to unbrick your T8 V2 with our guide by CLICKING HERE,

    Hi, I have installed the latest firmware on this page but OTA updated will not boot to recovery to install the latest OTA update (with apparently a new look home screen). Goes through process, I tick both boxes but just re-starts. I have tried several times to re-install latest firmware above but same results.

    • Entertainment Box

      Hello, if you download the latest T8 V2 firmware then manually flash your T8 V2 by using the SD card method and this will update your firmware and will fix your OTA update.

      Thank you.

  8. Chris

    Hi I’m trying to download ota update but it’s saying I need to update su binary manually re root it’s on t8-v2 how do I do this ?

    • Entertainment Box

      Hello Chris, try to flash the firmware manually by using the SD card method then afterwards you should have our OTA app working properly.

      Thank you.

  10. Charles Brind-Winnen

    Hi, I’m trying to perform latest update and I have an empty sd card installed and I’ve downloaded the latest T8 v2 firmware and upon attempting to copy across from the T8 to the card via filemanager HD it states an error that “currently Android 4.4 does not allow 3rd party applications to make modifications to external Sd cards” so I’m unable to copy the T8-AML-V2 zip or the recovery.img file. Please advise as none of the applications currently work so I basically have a dead box that needs to be rebuilt. Thanks in advance.

    • Entertainment Box

      Hello Charles, you can download the firmware by using a PC/Mac then transfer the files to your empty SD card and flash your T8.

      Thank you.

  11. Brian Abdie

    Hi… I have 2 T8 boxes I recently updated them over the OTA app… The one box updated fine and I have the new menu but my other box will not go into recovery mode it go through the 400+ files I tick the 2 boxes the box shows the ‘boot’ title on the front but all it does is restart…. Any advise would be appreciated.

    • Entertainment Box

      Hello Brian, try to update the firmware by using the SD card method. That should force your box into recovery mode and then it will flash the firmware if successful.

      Thank you.

  12. Jatt Singh

You also need to make sure that your SD card is formatted before transferring the files to it. If you still have issues please email our support team.


  18. Andy Oldroyd

    Hi I have just updated to the latest firmware (build 29/01/2016) but the box is saying it isnt rooted. When i run SuperSu it says there is no SU binary installed.

    I have rerun the upgrade just in case but have the same issue.

    Any ideas?

  19. buxtor

    I was having troubles after finding a US style power chord, with the T8 system crashing to reboot upon opening Kodi. After trying the SD card firmware T8-V2 update, with no success from Linux, which I suspect had to do with a format type issue, tried the Unbrick Your T8 route and had success flashing but tons of the same issue with FC-reboot, culminating in boot loops at the toughest set of circumstances. My power chord is a 1a 5v and I’m wondering if this is not correct, causing crashes due to inadequate power or just a faulty unit.

    • EntertainmentBox

      Hi Buxtor, the T8 uses a 5V 2.5a plug,the wrong plug would cause the issue you describe. If you are using the wrong voltage you would be getting them same errors.

  20. David

    hi,as previously stated after trying everything i could not get update 1.04,so i gave for some reason my box would not go past the boot screen,just sat there.eventually gave up after switching on and of and it still did the same.i then tried booting up with my sd card which contained the sd card maker u boot files and the t8 firmware zip. success,when i then went into the ota app it said the lastest firmware was 1.05,but although it downloaded,installed it did not flash the box.what happened to 1.04 did that work or just superceded ? bottom line is i’m still in the same boat as before with this latest firmware.also i tried resetting box with reset button after failed download/install of 1.05 as you recommended to someone else and that did not work either.please help and keep up the good work.

    • EntertainmentBox

      Hi David, we have updated the T8 Firmware today with the fixes. You will need to download the Firmware from the firmware page and re-flash your device with an SD card.

  21. Luka

    Hi guys!

    First of all, thank you for your incredible support and continuous development of new updates for the T8-V2 – this tvbox rocks!

    I have a questions.. Will you implement an Android Lollipop ROM also for this device?


    • EntertainmentBox

      Hi Luka,
      We are still working on getting a stable version of lollipop for the T8 V2, thanks for your kind words.

  22. Angelo

    How do I know if I have done this successfully. Build number says June. Kernel version says may. Android version 4.4.2. Thanks

    • EntertainmentBox

      Hi Angelo,
      If your device rebooted then went into recovery (green man with a line at the bottom) your FW upgrade should have worked.

  23. Craig

    i have downloaded the files, put them in the root of the sd card and used reboot to recovery app. all goes great to that the reboot to recovery works. i get various options, one being update from ext. i choose this then the sd option. it the ails with read write errors and nothing is installed. any ideas?

  24. Neil

    From Neil

  25. Darren

    Hey, Just Downloaded the latest Firmware to my desktop and its a single what looks like text file? it’s usually a zip file that downloads, any ideas why it’s only downloaded a single file? cheer.

  26. Mark

    Looks like a few of us are experiencing the same problem, i.e. OTA update downloads but does not install/never goes in to recovery.
    I know the box are working to identify root cause…..fingers crossed, fixed soon.

    • EntertainmentBox

      Could you try this.
      After the OTA downloads the latest FW if your device did not reboot to recovery, power off the unit then hold the reset button in. Now power up the device holding the reset button in. Hopefully it should start the recovery.

  27. David

    hi,have tried the sd card maker and u boot files that flashes the box but the ota updater still only downloads the 1.04 rom but does not flash the box.when i go back on the ota it still tells me i need 1.04 update.i even tried the reboot manager to recovery again but to no avail.any more suggestions or will this update be superceded and a newer one work?

  28. David

    I’ve Done a Factory Reset and now it gets stuck on the screen with a droid having something move around inside it. I tried installing the new firmware but it just boots to the same screen again.

    P.S I did a Factory Reset Cause It was getting stuck on the boot screen with the specs.

  32. Alex

    Hi I’m following the instructions on how to update my firmware on my T8-AML-V2 and I’ve reached the point where it says SuperSU needs to give permission but nothing is happening. When I try and open SuperSU it tells me:
    ‘There is no SU binary installed, and SuperSU cannot install it. This is a problem! If you just upgraded to Android 4.3 you need to manually re-root – consult the relevant forums for your device!’
    Can you help me?

  33. David

    Hi,I have the same issue as gaz above,have even updated supersu now supersu pseudopro.ota updater says access as this what you are on about.thanks in advance

    • EntertainmentBox

      Hi David, If your device only reboots after you used the OTA and did not flash your firmware Try this, open your Apps and look for an App called Reboot Manager, Use this App to to “reboot to recovery” Hopefully now it should now start to flash your device.

  34. Gaz

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the above, I checked and both OTA Updater and Reboot Manager have SuperSU but I still having the same issue that the OTA update 1.04 downloads fine and I follow the above instructions but my box does not reboot into recovery it just goes from the Amologic splash screen to the moving orange boot screen.

    Hi hopefully you can help, I’m at the end of my tether now.

    I tried a factory reboot using the above, by the letter and now it appears that my box is completely blank with nothing at all on it. I have double checked and the SD card has only five files including the unopened one, but nothing. I now have a box that seems to be just that. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks
