    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,
