Do you have issues with your U-M8 Android EBox TV box device and want to do a factory reset on it ? So you should be aware if you do a factory reset so it will delete all the data on your device and it will be left with default apps on it which came with firmware on device or as last time you updated firmware.

So there are two ways to factory reset the device back to how you received it from us.

First Method

Please go to Main Settings via main screen or apps menu on your EBox device.

Now select Other and than go to More Settings onto it.

Now go to Backup And Reset option. And If needed here you can do a backup via Backup My data option for app data,WiFi password and other settings of device to your Google account.

Now you can proceed for Factory Data Reset so once you click on it it will show a warning screen so you need to click on Reset Device and on next screen click Erase Everything . Now device will shut down and reboot so it may take a few minute to reset device completely so don’t turn off device or remove power cable until it boot to menu screen.

So for Re-flash of device firmware using this method please download the firmware for your device U-M8 using a computer and check the instruction on page for downloading the files and unpack on SD card from here .

Now connect the SD card with firmware loaded on your U-M8 Android EBox TV box SD card slot and look at right of device there is a small hole for reset button into it.

First remove the power cable from device and use a pin and press the pin into hole until you hear a sound that it got pressed and now connect the power cable back to device with continue pressing the reset button via pin and than once the screen flash than remove the pin from reset button and it will be showing installing System updated on TV screen so it should complete the Reset/Re-flesh process now and will load the menu screen on device when completed.
