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 have the same androidtv stick as yours (from the dx site) and I needed help getting the second part of stane's rom installed.

I tried stane's original firmware and installed it twice as per stane's advice to get both the core and the apps installed but the apps do not get installed for some reason.

Next, I tried your 2 part flash, the first part flashes fine, the second part states it is missing required files to update.  I looked into the factory_update_param file and found these lines:

So it's looking for the original, so I just copied and renamed it  Unfortunately that doesn't work because I get a null error since it boots into recovery.
Do you have any suggestions?

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..
