In addition, the S905X3 is much more straight forward to flash.

Amlogic is pretty easy but how about your experience with other CPUs? Easy to flash too?
for amlogic, there is easier way to flash, just copy the firmware to thumbdrive, add a small text file to define parameters, plug in and power on then the update will perform by itself.

Good to hear. Did you use the PC connect male-male usb cable to TV box and flash with Amlogic_USB_Burning_Tool software?

This box UI easy to navigate?

Can download apps easily to watch HK TW China and Hollywood movies?

Looking for easy UI, fast box with no lag just for watching movies.

Of course can share



Paid $46.99 after discount from Qoo10, bought it in Jan.

Yes, that's how I did it but sometimes got to remove cable and connect back a few times if flash fail halfway.

S905X3 is very fast and cooling, don't even need fan.

It usually comes with Android 9 so any app that supports that can be used.

UI looks exactly like this



Quite easy to navigate. Not happy can easily flash to another compatible box with same model.

Oh wow, that sounds perfect.

I've tried using burn card maker to create a microSD card but both boxes can't seem to boot from it.

Which program you use to write? Some they insist on old windows.. this box can use micro SD to flash? Can you help provide the software etc on google drive?

We used paid app to view.
You can search around in Shopee website
I think not many people know that paid apps these days are pretty affordable already.

In fact, I have meWATCH in my box, don't even need free to air box . Netflix, Viu, etc more than enough.

I use Windows 10, just updated too so I'm sure it works on the latest Windows.

I tried using SD card but it didn't work.

Look for Amlogic_USB_Burning_Tool_v2.2.0 and Burn Card Maker 202. Burn Card Maker is for SD card but it didn't work for me.

Which box? The box I bought came rooted, there is also an update function but I seriously doubt OEM boxes will update so I just manually flash. However, if there's nothing wrong with the box, better don't flash .
