    RK3368 boxes are coming out like green in spring these last few days. Seems Ugoos(UT4?) and Nagrace have versions in the pipeline too. Exciting times.
    Specs above lists a 3 Amp power supply, that's a plus. Like this box, it seems most of these 3368 boxes are using a full-sized SD card slots. I like SD over microSD, easier to handle, much harder to misplace. Also SD slots can handle both types of cards(with adapter).
    Thanks for the info, photos and links.

      Is it just me or don't I see any external wifi antenna on any of these RK3368 devices?
      Then it's going to be really bad.
      The Alibaba photo's show wifi antenna but not the Geekbuying ones.
      The same for the Beelink devices.

        Good observation. Have you seen the Nagrace/Ugoos 3368 boxes? If so, do they follow this trend?

          Only the ones with HDMI-In.
          I think they want to release better quality ones than others that just want to first release RK3368.
          I'll try to find out more.

            ...
            Is there a T-chip's 3368 box coming with HDMI in? Or were you referring to their 3288 boxes?
            I don't want to bug you, but the thought of it has piqued my interest.
            Thanks for your efforts.

              Does anyone know how to root or update the firmware on this box?

                I tried contacting SunChip but to no avail. I know they make cheap boxes but you would think that they would like to have GOOD press and not bad press.

                  Just wanted to post that I got the Wasser Beelink R68 firmware working on this device -

                  http://freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-...an-wifi-ap6335

                  Need to use this work around to get wifi working.

                  A. WiFi fix using xplorer as root

                  TV BOX
                  1. Using xplorer (root) open root
                  2. Go to /etc/firmware and locate nvram_AP6335.txt
                  3. Copy nvram_AP6335.txt to SD card (optional)
                  5. Rename nvram_AP6335.txt to nvram_AP6335.txt.orig
                  6. Rename nvram_AP6330.txt to nvram_AP6335.txt
                  7. Reboot

                  I also got the Lollipop Wasser working but Marshmallow was more stable.
