  2. Good firmware – fast and bring back to life this old tv box… BUT (yes there’s a BUT) no WIFI… no gamepad/keyboard support …

  3. SAme for me here…
    DEvice was successfully updated, but I lost Wifi, Bluetooth, remote control…
    Looks like I’m not the only one, but has anyone been able to fix it ?

  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.
