    No dude, my prob was the screen and sound kept going off and it was getting worse so I tried another rom and now its pretty much useless until a proper img comes out.

      Couldn't find this thread after the forum change so made a new one in the MECOOL/VORKE thread but just in case:

      Hi,

      A USB IMG has now been uploaded for the M8S PRO:

      M8S_PRO-NMF26Q-20170524.163713.V0321.img

      Was offline most of yesterday but here you go:

        Eddiepropane hope you were able to download the file. My Chinese not good enough to get through the process. If you got it please pass it along. Second problem I'm having on this box is downloading a file. I don't know if it's the box or android 7.1 not letting the file write to the usb drive.
        Thanks in advance.

          Thanks for the share Eddiepropan. I should have done more searching. Another box with 7.1 coming this week and will find out if download is problem of box or Android issue.

              Why the difference in .img(1.2 Gb) and .zip(775 Mb) file? Is it the same upgrade? What is exactly included? Tnx!

                Hi,

                I purchased a Rii mini i8+ BT keyboard / touchpad for this device - but ive just realised that in the description of the remote it says may not work with bluetooth 4.0 - and the m8s pro uses 4.1.

                Was just wondering if anyone has been able to get it to work before i send it back?

                  Hi,

                  I have purchased a MECOOL M8S Pro. Upgraded to latest Firmway (24/05/2017). All working well...

                  Only problem I have is that I don't seem to be able to override the M8S Pro startup App (Launcher). I've set the default launcher but the M8S Pro always seems to override it on startup.

                  Has anyone solved this?

                  Thanks
                  Adrian

                      I've downloaded and installed the firmware.

                      I noticed some slight improvement on my device but now have 2 small icons permanently in the top left of my screen on the status bar which I cant get rid of.

                      The two icons are BCenter with strange bbbbbb and cccccc written there and an icon named MgmtSupport.

                      Is it the same for anyone else with this firmware. Is there some way to get rid of them?

                      Can't say I noticed this when I updated my device this morning and when I rebooted it this evening, I notice these odd icons.

                        Yes I too have seen this problem with the 2 notifications in the top left. The BCenter also randomly crashes and pops up a message in the middle of the screen saying "BCenter has stopped working, click OK to continue" or words to that effect....

                        I don't seem to be able to downgrade my firmware and go back to the 05/05.2017 edition that didn't have this problem....

                        24/05/2017 does seem to have fixed the problem with the button bar at the bottom of the screen not showing.

                        Still can't override the M8S Pro Launcher though!!! Really need to fix this....

                          Thanks for the reply, relieved that I am not the only one with the problem. I hope they will fix it but I don't have too high hopes on that. Every time they issue an update they seem to introduce some additional problems.

                          My device on the 05/05 firmware, when I played live streams in websites (ustv for eg.), it resulted in my device locking up trying to play the video and I had to always force a shutdown. With this newer firmware 24/05 I do not have that problem anymore.

                          I noticed when I installed adguard today, it stopped/blocked only the Bcenter icon in the top left corner. Being suspicious this makes me wonder what kind of spying this firmware/device manufacturer has introduced in those 2 small icons.

                            I have 2 MECOOL boxes, both doing the same after the 24/05/2017 update. I have done factory reset's and cache reset's on both and they still persist with BCenter and MgmtSupport. Good to know about adguard thanks.

                            I do remember seeing BCenter on the 05/05/2017 firmware, but it just seemed to start and then disappear, but now it hangs around until it randomly crashes.

                            Interestingly I get ddddddd and cccccc instead of your "bbbbbb and cccccc" not sure there is any relevance on this though.

                            @t▀ebo▀ Any thought on this or how to override the M8S Pro Launcher?
