  • There will be many folders selected for reinstalling the folder (The reinstall folder name can be different from previous firmware versions, but the path will be the same).
  • You will see a list of Apps that will come with a preinstalled software on the Android box.
  • They look for DBMC and click on it, and after the pop-up window appears, click on it install it.
  • If a security warning pops up, click on Settings and put a check sign on Unknown the Sources.
  • Next, you will notice that the tick check sign has appeared on the right-hand side of the Unknown Sources.
  • Once that is done again, go back to the Home screen and then go to my Apps.
