4.8 (79) 95.19%

Today I will show you how to do a firmware update for Android Mini PC MK908 from Tronsmart, stick with android operating system that turns a normal TV smart TV.
To update the firmware on MK908 we need:
1. Stick MK908 no cables or memory card connected
2. USB cable that came with Android MK908 stick in the package.
3. A pin or a thin steel wire (for pressing internal)
4. Firmware and drivers (see below at the end of text)
Onwards all need to install the USB driver (the most important), because the application of NAND flash to see and be able to write data there.
For insalarea driver must connect the USB cable to the computer, then to stick MK908 OTG port (required) while we keep hidden reset button.
Windows will detect a new device but will not be able to find the driver, you have to install it manually in November (just like in the tutorial).
If the USB driver is installed correctly, launch the application by flashuire you receive the message "Found RKAndroid ...." if you have not installed correctly you will receive the message "No Found RKAndroid ...."
If the driver installation went right to the bottom of the flash tool you message "Found RKAndroid rock usb" means you can grab flash (just like in the tutorial).
CAREFUL
Update firmware can be dangerous in certain situations: power failure on the host computer system failures, software bugs, etc.
Videotutorial.ro team does not assume any responsibility for any problems that users can encounter. This tutorial is purely informative.
If you do not need the update, you should not do it.
This is not the only method for updating the operating system Android on PC mini sticks, there are other tools / methods to update the firmware. If you want to do and tutorials about those methods, please request this in the comments box.

    eventually someone bought this gadget and how it works honestly I have not seen anywhere explain just how it works
    really worth the money?

  10. Michael B.: If you use mini PC with a monitor with HDMI, but without audio speakers how to fix it?

    You can output the sound via USB or using an adapter with a USB sound system.
    The second option would use a bluetooth mini sound system.

    I have one for about a month. When I received it I wanted to throw it. He came with Android 4.1.1 and had a problem on the graphics, block cam 5 seconds, and so was reeling. Then I discovered Finless ROM 1.4 which went very well. AnTuTu idea that the stock was about points and the Finless 14000 17900. The only big problem was the resolution 1080, which in reality is 732 or something (no, not 720). Samsung T24B300 on a monitor in most cases could not read a text (web page). I put in storage to occur Andoid 4.2.2 which said it will bring with it support for real 1080. A little better but not perfect, at least it seems to me. And guilt can be a monitor. 1080 thing brought with it another big problem that makes the moment unusable. Heat. All. Starting from boxy to USB and HDMI cables. As is the normal locks; 10 minutes browsing and ready. I opened a small joke and cooling appears engineering.

    I do not have any problems with it, the only problem occurs when the shock (processor + graphics) heats. the problem can be solved in several ways, either with a fan (to draw heat from the slot), or by placing the USB stick in a stream of residual air (behind the TV if it has a fan in the back of your PC), I I put it behind NAS's, there is an air flow from the fan's NAS.
    Whatever method you use cooling air flow must be very small, does not need too much "wind".
    A tutorial to treat a cooling problem in particular.
    I should mention that the stick does not heat in normal use but only in games, video or browser when flash is used.
    We must be aware, it comes with processing power and heating.

    Port USB OTG can connect many peripherals, however for those who require more energy will be required to use a USB HUB with separate power supplies, which provide enough power hard disk external or other USB peripherals that require more energy .

      Well not understand nothing to hold you in? ... I'm glad you chime in but had to come with more lamuriiri since if you own this device as shown in the tutorial. Everyone expects to come with tutorials that you promised about this device. You made the world curious and so. Do not you think you should LAMURIIRI WITH MORE? For example you do not think it's managed in terms of this warming http://www.tronsmart.com/tronmart/item/43 they say yes and tend to think they're right. I think that when you put in disutie something and you're in the field it's good to come with explanations to help us.

  22. Valeriu Voicu: Well not understand anything How to keep you abreast? ... I'm glad you chime in but had to come with lamuriiri earlier than if you own this device as shown in the tutorial. Everyone expects to come with tutorials that you promised about this device. You made the world curious and so. Do not you think you should LAMURIIRI WITH MORE? For example you do not think it's managed in terms of this warming http://www.tronsmart.com/tronmart/item/43 they say yes and tend to think they're right. I think that when you put in disutie something and you're in the field it's good to come with explanations to help us.

    I mean the acquisition, you keep abreast of:
    total price paid
    how long did it come
    who brought you (mail, courier)
    Regarding the heating device, the rumors are true and no.
    Why say that? If you watch a movie you have no problem for 120 minutes stay relatively cool stick (maybe a little warm)
    If the wireless connection flosesti not have little chance to warm too much.
    Instead if you play games or surf the web with flash enabled can be heated loud enough to restart or blocking.
    Luckily there's nothing that can not be repaired ...
    The problem is not ultimately a "problem", that's because the device has an extremely powerful (louder than S4 on your HTC ONE X with a beta rom), pretty hard to keep cool without a very stable firmware .
    It's premature to say that "stick is too hot", because, do not forget, we have firmware too young, which is not well optimized foate.
    However stick warms, what can we do?
    Simply put beside it a fan to draw hot air, any fan going.
    We may use and air streams from other fans (TV, PC, nose, external hard drive) if we have something besides stick.
    I will make a special tutorial on warming issue in which you try to find the best and convenient solutions.
    Remember, this stick is the cheapest computer on the market, it's normal to have some fitze ...

    Waiting for someone you have to say to me if I deserve it or not despite that took him to ask others to take him
    Good luck

  24. vasilica Dolanescu: Ma boys ultimately it is good or not at this money as if she beats me I take and not good so buy them ice to cool him along on package you take out or going without? Waiting for someone you have to say to me if I deserve it or not despite that took him to ask others to take him Bafta

    Let's be clear.
    If you use the device normally (chat, web, video, without games) does not heat.
    Even if heats this intempla not immediately but in a half hour or an hour of intense gaming, video flash benchmark.
    In my heats in about 40 minutes after it starts, but the rub of hell I take it, are constantly testing to see how far reaching.
    To no longer incalzesca I put a fan on it and it's cold as ice. How can I rub it all does not heat.
    If you put a fan is super super stable.
    MK908 heats because of weak operating system optimization and especially lack of energy management. Soon will come ROMs more stable and we will not need a ventilator.
    Using a fan does not seem one end of the country, they can be purchased at any street corner with 5 or 10 lei lei each for the smallest piece of 40mm.
    I'll make a tutorial dedicated to the cooling of the device.
    Do not forget that just came on the market processor, developers have not yet managed to come out with versions of Android optimized for RK3188.
    Now MK908 ported ROMs runs on PCs with processors mini RK3088 the last generation.
    Any powerful CPU cooling needs.

What are these? I hope you have not already processed my order and each product can change if necessary

    • Daniel Jugravescu said

      I had to make myself better understood. The problem with the cooling occurs only if the kernel puts 1080p. If you put 720p no cooling problems but it is possible that the text is not very readable. At least in my case it was.
      Pusula idea with a fan on it is not really practical, hdmi adapter cable that comes (has 30 cm) allows for the best pasting's stick with duct tape on the back of the monitor. How could I catch a fan there and what will it energized (without a self-powered hub) is an open discussion. But, no matter how small it is changing, it cost.

  41. Hello !! I have a mini pc MK802 IV from rikomagic. i going to do with the firmware update ROM that you put to download?

  42. I installed Windows drivers is probems I 8.1?

  43. Hello Cristi! Please specify in your tutorial to update the firmware that not all HOLDERS OF MK908 can do it. It depends very much on the version of the device that you do not know what version you have, but I personally v5.0 and 2 days I struggled to put a new firmware on this device! The update is done exactly as you have shown above (with a little clarification on some device's is impossible to delete NAND memory, this does not represent ANY PREOBLEMA, NAND memory will be automatically deleted when flashuieste file "misc") so those who encounter this problem can directly click on the button in the application ROM FLASH above, absolutely no problem. What I want to say, very important, the only functional ROM for tronsmart mk908 v5.0 is a STOCK ROM which you can find very easily on google giving a search by: update_mk908_202j2203_overseas that you can flash only with Rockchip_Batch_Tool_v1.6 ui (official software flash in Rockchip) is very simple, connect the device to your PC taking buton pressed, installation drivers and then Rockchip_Batch_Tool_v1.6 incaracati ROM and hit restore. I hope I could help some users mk908 v5.0 which one gave me some trouble. So far I am very pleased with it but with this ROM that comes with the device does not use a web camera and no wifi gamepad most likely because the kernel, so expect an update as soon as possible! I wish you a nice day.

    • These mini PCs require stable current.
      5V official is said to 2Ah reality is that it is better to use a power supply / charger good quality that can provide at least 2Ah or 2.5Ah. I have an Asus feeder high quality and I'm sure that I provide stable current.
      With standard feeder and I had similar problems to yours.
