    I tried installing a firmware to my M8 box, the Android with the progress bar ran until the end and everything but then a green screen showed with another progress bar that ran to the end, but at the end nothing happens. It just says “warning: don’t power off

      Sound like the box will not take any firmware. You can’t do much about it.

    Hi I bought a m8 android box from yourselves last year. The box has started showing a message. ” This box has a serious error and needs to reboot” this message is in orange writing and white back ground. Can this be resolved or has the box developed a fault which cannot be fixed?

    1. Entertainment Box

      Hi Roy, You could try a manual firmware upgrade by clicking here and you will need an SD card for this method or if the device is still within the years warranty you may send it in to us to rectify.

      Hope this resolves your problem.
