Update Issues on MXQ Pro 4K

As of now, 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

A lot of users are complaining 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 need to fix them on your own. When we update the device, we haven’t faced 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 is not working after the update. We also faced this issue. To fix the issues, you need to 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 app is not working, you need to reset the MXQ Pro 4K.

Without the USB Burning tool, you can’t update the device. You can do the update only using a Windows PC and can’t do the same on Mac PCs. Follow the above steps to easily update your MXQ Pro 4K device’s firmware. If you have any other methods to update the streaming device, tell us in the comments below.

  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.
