  • [HELP] A95X R1 - Bootloop and firmware - RK3229 or S90?

    Hello there.
    I need help with a TV Box that I have bought recently on Aliexpress, I will attach the link from where I bought it
    https://es.aliexpress.com/item/A95X-...311.0.0.mcbgtR
    [img=https://k60.kn3.net/D/8/C/0/4/6/183.jpg]
    The TV Box came with Android 7 and its avertized that it has the RK3229 SoC
    Recently the TV box was having bootloop problems, I did the soft reset using the toothpick method, it worked and I could get into the system and install my apps again.
    The thing is that what I shut down properly and turn it on again the bootloop shows up again.
    The seller doesn't answer my messages. (It's the second A95X R1 TV Box I have bought from them though)
    I thought it was the firmware, I looked on everywhere and I ended on this forum.

    I installed the rockchip drivers and the Batch Tool and got the male-to-male USB cable and made the required steps to connect the tv box to the computer but nothing on Batch Tool shows up.
    [img=https://k61.kn3.net/C/5/F/4/3/3/973.jpg]
    As you can see in the screenshot I (suppose that) have selected the correct firmware (a firmware with android 6.0) but the Batch Tool doesn't recoginze it at all.

    BUT GUESS WHAT
    The USB Burning Tool for S90 SoC devices recognizes the TV Box!
    [img=https://k60.kn3.net/0/0/0/C/4/2/3BB.jpg]

    So I opened the device manager to see the actual name of the device.


    The USB burning tool doesn't load the firmwares designed for RK3229, only for S90 (obviously), so I tried to install that firmware but an error shows up.
    [img=https://k61.kn3.net/7/4/7/8/E/9/D42.jpg]
    What should I do?
    I will really appreciate your help

    Hi ,

    to be sure u must open it and read on CPU what Chip it has , best way . The Picture of the

    DManager only shows a WolrdCup Driver supported Amilogic Device , not sure that it is a

    Amilogic Box because the BTool did not react , maybe you did something wrong or Drivers

    are not installed good , what Windows do you use ???

    Here you can find two A95X Roms for 1/8 & 2/8 Boxes :

    http://www.wechipbox.com/-ezp-24.html

    here are Infos and Roms too :

    http://freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-...x-1-8gb-rk3229

    ask if you need more help there too .

    hope it helps / good luck / gefattern

      Thanks for the answer, i'm using Windows 10.
      Please, can you tell me how to open the box? I'm afraid of damaging it.

        Hi ,

        first look here for correct Driver installing :

        http://chinagadgetsreviews.blogspot....p-rockusb.html

        after that you can reboot and try it again , here Insallation help :

        http://ugoos.net/blog/rockchip-firmw...flashing-guide

        note some Boxes have the "Reset" button inside the AV Jack , behind it , only reachable with

        Earcleaner or similar .

        Here are Infos about the different A95X Boxes :

        https://www.igeekphone.com/a95x-a1-v...upon-included/

        for opening the Box best ask User "Trebor" he knows it for sure :

        http://freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-...x-1-8gb-rk3229

        but i think with screws under the Rubber feets .

        good luck / gefattern

          Hello again, I could open the box, I just lifted the bottom part.
          I couldn't get off the heatsink, I even tried a hairdryer, but got the board upside down and found a sticker.
          According to the sticker I think the CPU is a A1 S905X.
          Now it's more logical that the USB Burning Tool recognizes the device but I can't install another firmware.

            Now that the USB Burning Tool recognizes the device I have tried several S905X firmwares for devices with 1GB RAM/8GB ROM but each one of them shows me an error message while trying to flash them.
            The board says A95XA1_V1_0 wihich I think is the model of the board and down there it says 20170407 which I suppose is the date of manufacure

              but now we know it is a AML Box and can guide you to the right StockRom for Restore from here :

              http://www.wechipbox.com/wechip-a95x...l#.WchrGk5CQb0

              and please uncheck "eraseBootloader" this can handle you a brick if you flash the wrong FW , i am not

              a Pro in AML flashing but i really sure that it must unchecked while flashing !!!??? , but i ask the Pros for

              that . be patient / greetings / gefattern

                  Well, the device came with Android 7 but suddennly started to bootloop, so I wiped the cache and did the factory reset from the recovery menu. Everything was ok until I shut down the device properly from the system and later it began the boot loop and I had to wipe the cache and do the factory reset all over again. So I think it's an issue with the rom and I would like to downgrade it from android 7 to 6 or at least 5.

                  You are very nice people, honestly, I'm surprised.
                  I will keep in touch with the TV Box scene to learn more about this devices and be helpful to you in the future.

                  Now I will try with the firmwares you provided me, I'll keep you guys in touch.

                      Hi ,

                      if you can use a Win7 32 or 64bit , better for flashing . Did you check or uncheck

                      the "eraseBootloader" ??? Good luck / gefattern

                            Well, I tried on another computer and looks like it flashed well with no errors in the process, but now the box doesn't turn on and the led stays red.
