I tried it.
Firmware 1.1.6 works!

First install firmware from that post:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=45502307&postcount=12

Next.
Flash MX2 firmware 1.1.6 with standard method (toothpick, etc.).

My first experiences.
WiFi works very well and quickly!
Very quickly connects to the router.
Faster startup videos from Youtube.

Greetings

Hi,

tested and returned back to 1.1.5 version.

Reasons:
- not possible to setup resolution manually (I want to use 720p but the firmware switched to 1080i without possibility to change this)
- I miss lower bar with Home and other buttons (at least I didnt found how to return them back).

I didnt test WiFi to compare speed, because I use Ethernet.

Too bad you watched the applications.
Among them is a special application for the setting of G-Box MX2.
There you can set everything, and resolution and hidden bottom bar.

You're right, there is a setup APP. I was too impatient Wink
Thanks, now all works OK with the 1.1.6 version.

P.S.: Antutu v. 4 gives me 11500 points, impressive.

Anyone know if it's possible to use the SD Card method and upgrade the DroidTV MX firmware directly to Gbox 1.1.6?

Thanks

First:
Install Gbox MX2 firmware v1.1.5 from this post:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=45502307&postcount=12
This method can install and UNBRICK your AML8726-MX Android TV Box.

Second:
Now You can install firmware v1.1.6 use SD card method or OTA update.
I tested both ways. Working properly.

Sorry, worded it incorrectly

I want to know if I can skip installing 1.1.5 first and rather go directly to 1.1.6 using the method described on the xda forum?

Thanks
