Update Issues on MXQ Pro 4K

Currently, there is no standard way to update the MXQ Pro 4K. The device manufacturer has not released any updates, and the device is no longer in production. The firmware we used was also taken from the GitHub repositories. So, you might have issues after updating the firmware.

WiFi Issues

Many users complain that the WiFi is not working after updating the MXQ Pro device. When you turn on the WiFi connectivity, it will automatically turn off. If you have any such issues, you must fix them by restarting the WiFi Router. When we updated the device, we didn’t face any issues. You can also carry forward the same update process once again to fix the issue.

Bluetooth Issues

For some users, the Bluetooth feature might not work after the update. We also faced this issue. To fix the issues, restart the MXQ Pro 4K device after the update. After the update, the BT issue on our device was fixed. Try restarting the device to fix the issue.

Remote Control Issues

If the remote control is not working after the update, it may be due to the dead batteries. Change the batteries on the remote and try again. If the remote is not working after changing the batteries, then the issue is with the device. Try installing the Android TV Remote Service app to control the device. You can install the app from the Play Store. If the remote app cannot control the TV, reset the MXQ Pro 4K.

Without the USB Burning tool, you can’t update the device. You can update only using a Windows desktop or laptop and can’t do the same on a Mac.

On this MXQ Pro 4K device, you can update the firmware to the latest version. In a few cases, you can update the device to the Oreo Android version. If you still have issues with updating, it is better to buy a new MXQ Pro 4K Android TV, which is available in Android 12 and 13 versions.

  4. In the leaflet that came with the MXQ Pro it is mentionned that I should insert an SD card in the slot while the device is powered off and use a toothpick to reset it while powering the device back on. Of course, there has to be the update file on the SD card. There’s no mention of the USB burning program. What is the best solution? Seems to me it is simpler with an SD card but is it the right way to do it.
