    All went well, and i thank you very much. Only glitch was my using a 64gb sd card, apparently. Got to Recovery mode but would not upgrade. Switched to a 16gb card, FAT32 vs exFAT, and baddabing baddaboom, good to go. The card only used 1.62gb so you could get by with a 2-4gb card in all liklihood. Thanx again!

    Hello, I will need your technical support.  My daughter has something unintentionally printed on the remote and since then I have no sound.  On the left side of the screen is a sign for speakers.  I tried everything, including reset, settings, but I can not do it.  

    Ask for the help!

    Well, followed these instructions & it resulted in a bricked H96 pro+, so be wary of upgrading. I wish I'd not bothered & just stuck to Android 6.0. Thanx Britec09 for helping me ruin my H96 pro+

    Thanks Britec09 for the good video. I had my H96 pro + upgraded to Android 7.1, now I am just curious to know if I can upgrade to the Android 8.1? Your response is much appreciated.

  7. My H96 is partially bricked after installing Superuser. I can't even boot to bootloader. Do you know where and how to install the OEM firmware, bootloader, etc.?

    Also, is it necessary to use USB? Using standard microSD doesn't do anything.

    I've the same model h96 pro plus which I bought recently, but due to some error it got stuck in the boot loop. Continously got the MBOX logo. I tried factory reset through recovery but that doesn't make any difference, just to ask you that if I overwrite this rom on my device does it work. I've a doubt coz it is showing the version 01/06/2018. Wich is latest and Android 7.1.2. Plz help me getting out of it.
