  mecool box M8S Pro W reboots intermittently
Posted by: rob36 - 08-24-2018, 09:01 PM - Forum: MECOOL TV Boxes - Replies (6)

mecool box M8S Pro W reboots intermittently.

When  the box reboots , with the rooling mecool letters , when the screen comes back , the remote control does not work , nor does the wireless USB mouse work! I have to unplug the power cord, and then the remote and usb sireless mouse both work! Then after awhile intermittently the Mecool box, just rebboot it self back to the rooling MECOOL screen.

Hopefully someone else has had this problem and was able to correct this intermittent fault! The MECOOL box has had the REBOOT issue since NEW!


Thanks in advance for any help.

  Factory Reset a Minix Neo U1
Posted by: rigsby - 08-24-2018, 05:29 AM - Forum: MINIX TV BOX - Replies (3)

I've had a Minix Neo U1 for some time but recently I can't access the "Settings". The screen flickers & just comes back to the main selection.

Is there a way to reset the box to Factory settings ?? Obviously I can't get into the "Settings" to do it. I've googled it and have yet to find an answer.

Alternately, if there's another way to get into "Settings" that would suffice too.

Thanks.

  Bricked Yundoo Y8
Posted by: Rasta - 08-23-2018, 08:28 PM - Forum: YUNDOO Y8 (RK3399) - Replies (6)

Hello

I am a happy yundoo y8 user. The android 7.1 is working quite well for me... but... I wanted to try linux  and I think I have bricked the Y8.

What I did? I got the linux image for an almost identical RK3399 device ( https://en.opensuse.org/HCL:Yundoo-Y8 ) and I flashed it with the command: upgrade_tool uf linux_image.img


After this, at power on with the red light is not switching to blue  nor it boots. Recovery mode (the button hidden inside the audio jack) is not working: the device is not detected in the USB with rkflashkit (before flashing it was appearing).

So, I installed a TTY serial cable to these points:

[Image: uart-e1503104224796.png?w=616&h=401]

and I got this log:

Searching the net (topic: Unhandled Exception in EL3) I found another person having same issue as my Y8 which he resolved by resetting the device short-circuiting what he called testpoints. I believe that these testpoints are the MASKROM points that shortcircuit emmc clock. But I am not sure:

Code:
http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:SWO0NRo6sNMJ:bbs.t-firefly.com/forum.php%3Fmod%3Dviewthread%26tid%3D1980+&cd=3&hl=es&ct=clnk&gl=es&client=ubuntu


With the console cable in place, I was able to determine that "mask rom" was not being entered.  I used a piece of wire to short the test points and reset the device until it appeared over USB.  At this point I was able to erase and re-flash it with the Ubuntu image.

For anyone else that experiences this, the tip is to make sure you have good contact on the test points.  Also, its much easier to press the reset button while shorting the pins than it is to plug/un-plug the power connector.


I think  that in the Yundoo Y8 board, these MASKROM or test points are these:

[Image: emmc_clock1.png]

If I shortcircuit the GND to the above ending of the resistor, the one that is pointed by the eMMC clock's arrow, then I get no log at all in the TTY terminal and the USB-C doesn't become accessible either.

So, I shortcircuited the points GND and the other copper point in the image beside the 22ohm label (the one below the resistor) and the emmc seems to be not accessible. Also, some kind of reset seems to happen, but when I release the points, the Unhandled Exception in EL3 hits again.

This is the log in the TTY terminal while shortcircuiting the points:

After this I don't know what to do.

EDIT: I made a backup for all the partitions with rkflashkit before flashing the linux image. 

Does anybody knows how to solve this issue... or... is my Yundoo Y8  bricked forever?

  T9 hangs permanently during Win10 update
Posted by: halonarchipelago - 08-21-2018, 02:44 AM - Forum: NEXBOX T9 - Replies (1)

The Win 10 update stopped halfway. Earlier updates left no storage room to save a backup/rollback.
Microsoft advised there was a hardware fault which I suspect was simply insufficient storage. Typically they were otherwise uncommunicative.
Tried to reinstall the original software but that failed also.
It runs but only to provide troubleshooting options that do not go anywhere.
The Unbrick software won't load.
Gearbest refuses to provide a refund beyond just over 40% of the original cost. I had to unlock Win10 to begin with so it has been a very unsatisfactory performance.
Are there any other things I can do to restore it to working condition or should I write it off to experience and take the USD40 offered by Gearbest??
