General Discussion / Re: Boot from SD Card in f16rev tv box
« on: February 24, 2013, 05:59:53 am »
What files do you put on the card??
What files do you want to boot???

You can launch recovery SD card by shorting pins 1&2 in the initial sector IC

how do you apply your update??

you have two ways:

Copy the zip to the sdcard
Install it using "update" app


get into recovery with any fake
on the sdard "by shorting the 1,2 pins"
then apply this zip to be able to see if there is any errors.

I was able to make the bootable sdcard in mini xp
thats a mini windows that comes with hernis boot cd
but I needed to change the file permissions of sdcard.exe first to allow the sd tool to write to the card...

by the way, I can't get into recovery?!!

What do you mean by
Unfortunately that doesn't work because I get a null error since it boots into recovery.

I was Expecting to receive a MK802  when I got this device from

apparently they sent me something else entirely...

the device on the link I purchased from is TOTALLY different from the device I received

"MK802"  vs  "MBX f16ref"

the MK802  is a lot more famous and it does have a lot of custom roms and stuff
different CPU, ram, ....the list goes on

any way I just anted to give some heads up... :)

If you received your device unRooted (like I did) you will be searching for this (like I did for a really long painful time  ::) )

So your search is over.. ;)

Just make sure you are using the same device here.. :D

And as always I can't and won't be held responsible if you end with a brick or divorce your wife... ;D

ps:I posted this on another forum earlier so I'm just quoting my self here.. :)

Got the same Exact issue here..
These are not the MK-802 Allwinner A10 devices

If you look up your system info you will find
"AMLOGIC 8726M3" or something similar

and yes they are NOT rooted..
I was able to root mine by flashing this file:

just copy it to your microSD and run the blue icon called "Upgrade", then choose "Local Upgrade" and select the file and wait for it to restart...
it should run in recovery mode and install the file then start the system again..

You are Rooted Now :-)
Happy rooting..
