      Hi, please contact MINIX or use Google or more information. We do not have that advice here,

      Thank you.

      Hello Dave, unfortunately we do not have M8s firmware available.

      Thank you.

    Is there a way I can do this without using the pin in the back method? Iv tried this method, restore to factory settings and using a reboot app via Google play store, all take me straight to the main screen with no changes to the box. I found this video on you tube
    would this work?

      Hello Steven, yes that should work fine like that. I just watched the video,
