Not Solved RE: Customized GBox MX2 4.2.2 Firmware for DroidTV MX
Zahid,

I've experienced something similar, but with Prometheus box. At some points it wouldn't get past A9 logo on boot. I noticed this was only happening when I had web cam and remote air mouse connected to USB ports.
If you have something connected to USB ports, try disconnecting these (I've done it with box turned off) and turn the box back again. Try disconnecting all usb ports.
Let me know if that helps going past A9 logo.

1) Try turning off the box
2) unplug all usb's
3) start the box with all the usb's unplugged

If the above doesn't help, I'm afraid you will have to flash the latest firmware.
Try the procedure in this thread then: http://forum.androidgadget.co.uk/showthread.php?tid=107

I have just experienced the exact same issue, but I am not opening the box up when its only been a matter of weeks since I purchased it, customer service query opened to resolve will revert back with the outcome.

Cheers for the video link, should be helpful for people out of warranty.

Floyd, I wouldnt write the box off totally mate lot of people have had no issues with them and the pi's have had issues also.

But Im sure in 2012 the pis are no longer made in china but now made in wales in a sony factory so maybe they have improved since then.

Sorry they have not improved speaking from experience and running both raspbmc and openelec i can clearly state that the raspberry pi's are not meant to be used as a media centre.

they don't even include all of the codecs...

great educational tool though
