How to flash the zidoo x9 firmware

There is some risk for flashing your BOX, please be quite careful to make it.(It will clean out user data entirely, please be cautious to do it.)

The following Flashing Process is about ZIDOO X9, attaching ZIDOO X9 TV BOX:

First, do some preparation:

① A ZIDOO X9 TV BOX, one HDMI cable, A TV set (You kept surely, do not say any more);

② a quite fine needle, you can use other finer tools instead of it, such as toothpick, etc. ( In order to hold down the Reset button );

③U disk, ensuring that it is as below the format of FAT32;

 

At the beginning, you need to download the zip ROM: the file MstarUpgrade.bin ( do not change the file’s name ), then copied to the U disk you’re ready , you just need to take it into the Root Directory , not other files.

Then, insert U disk into one of USB2.0 port, as shown below ①② mark.

Now you can flash your BOX: First,you need to press the Reset button , then turn on the Power, the VFD light will show COPY; if you connect to TV, the TV will show the schedule, proved that you are flashing now( around two minutes long) , after finishing flashing, it will enter the system automatically(It will be a little longer for the first time, about 3 minutes), maybe you can drink a cup of tea or coffee sit besides it. Please note that DO NOT turn off the power. If you did so, just need to re-flash without any fear.

The below pics are of the flashing process:

    Will this firmware disable the A/V port? It says in the instructions

    “The following Flashing Process is about ZIDOO X9, attaching ZIDOO X9 TV BOX:
    First, do some preparation:
    A ZIDOO X9 TV BOX, one HDMI cable, A TV set ”

    Why does it say HDMI cable and not HDMI cable or a A/V cable and a TV?
