    I also forgot to ask about external antenna. Do I need to unsolder internal antenna to use external one or I can use both?

        Yes unsolder. But if you rather have internal only you can first try with a better internal antenna, you should see improved signal and stability with a solid pcb patch antenna compared to the sloppy 'tape' from factory. Very cheap to order or if lucky find one in a broken tablet.

          Hello, everyone. I'm new to this site and very glad to found Z66X forum after buying the box from GeekBuying last month. Still on the connection topic, I put the box on wired ethernet but I have never been able to get decent connection, just 20 Mb/s tops for download (I have fibre 100 Mb/s). Connected with the same cable and on the same port, I can get max speed on my very laggy Windows 10 laptop. Anyone know the settings/tweak to crank up the speed? Thanks.

            20 is low but with these type of boxes do not expect more than 40 Mbps. I'm getting 35-40 max on 100Mbit fiber-LAN with Z66X on default settings. One common problem with many android boxes is bad sheilding so maybe try not to have wifi on and other electronic devices that can influence circuits.

              You really get monkey for the peanut that you've spent then, in this case. I'm just wondering how can one reviewer of the same box can get around 88 Mbps (I believe it was in Spanish) via Ethernet. And the funny thing is, wireless speed is actually faster than the wired one. Thanks for the response, tangoviking.

                          Flashed OK
                          Once I recalled what program to use and find it on the HDD, then how to use it again been awhile
                          No changelog YT still 720, UI running 720, still ok for what it is.

                                hy


                                anyone still active in this thread?


                                i got the rebranded 8GB version of this box:

                                https://www.amazon.com/Android-Globm.../dp/B078M68HKB

                                might there be a z66 firmware for 8gb device somewhere maybe trebor knows? )

                                ui is finer than here on globmall


                                btw from what i read cpu from these boxes here is similar to s905x


                                but the big advantage is that this cpu during usage, streaming, browsing, is at least 15 degrees celsius below those s905x/s905w cpus


                                without cooling here 53 celcius where 905 boxes easy hit the 70

                                with a fan below the box wings towards bottom not box 40 degrees stable while netflix evening, thats just great
