    Please be gentle with me as this is my first post.I have in my posession an amount of consumer 'tv dongle/boxes' which after endless searching I've found very little information on:



    It appears that it was released a few years back by Innokin and sold through Amazon as an Android tv gaming device and was sold with a bluetooth controller, I've connected a generic one and not suprisingly after attaching to wifi it states that thier servers no longer exist.

    It sports a micro-usb port, HDMI and USB.

    From what i can see it appears to have been re-sold (re-purposed) some while later by an unknown seller as a media device 'capable of sideloading apk's and comes with Kodi installed'

    quote from Amazon ' Powerful mini media player running Android 4.2 and supporting a wide range of popular media services including Kodi, Netflix, iPlayer and others *It is equipped with Bluetooth, WiFi and RF as well as a quad core processor with world class streaming capabilities *It comes with a browser loaded, allowing you to stream from any number of sites directly on to your TV *Sold with a remote control unit with air mouse for easy navigation and text entry *Dimension: 6cm x 6cm x 1cm '

    I'd be interested to try to repurpose this device myself but my knowledge is limited to flashing phones and building pc's in the 90's and so I know i have a lot to learn but would like to use this as an opportunity to do so.

    The fact that somebody has already flashed some rom onto these tells me that it's probably possible but i wouldn't know where to start and so wondered if anybody could at least point me in the right direction please?

    I'd be happy to send one of these 'gadgets' to somebody that was prepared to help me re-purpose it. I only have 3 of them so obviously i can't send them out to all interested parties.

    I'm trying to figure out its architecture so that i could possibly find a way of flashing an early android rom onto it but so far the only information i have is that it's sporting an unknown quad core Mediatek processor, possibly has 1 gb of DDR3 Ram and 8gb Rom but that's only from snippets of info I've collected.

    Could anyone please help me to bring this little thing back to life? Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to Android Central! I moved this from the Hardware Hideaway forum (not sure how well-trafficked that forum is) to the Android TV forum.

    If you don't get a good answer here, you might also try the forums at Freaktab.com, which has a pretty robust Android TV box discussion: https://forum.freaktab.com/
