How to Un-brick MXQ TV Box Freaktab?

If you had mistakenly bricked your MXQ android box or it had stopped working abruptly or displaying a logo or flashing a menu, then this article is just for you to solve your problem. 

Having an MXQ android box for your television lets you open up to the world of the internet, like never before. From online streaming to live telecasts, from podcasts to movies, and playing games from around the world. There’s so much you can do with just a click of your button.

Why do MXQ Boxes get bricked?

Now first, jumping over to the steps on unbricking your android box, let us first know why and how these boxes get bricked.

The reasons behind television boxes and android MXQ boxes gets bricked as follows:-

1) Failure to install the input method correctly: Failure to install the input method is quite common because the operating system of android originated from Linux, which is significant, and system users do the control startup. After we upload a file, the system user had no way to read that file due to it getting bricked.

2) Error in the operation of flashing:

In reality, the most complex operation is the easiest to carry out. Flashing 

itself is such that it is not easy to make mistakes as a result of which whenever you switch it on, it only shows the logo.

3)Taking help of fast booting:

Facebook is the lowest level of modification tool among others. It is always recommended not to use fast booting for operations such as flashing an android television box.

How to unbrick an MXQ Android box?

Now that we know why android boxes get bricked or stop working abruptly, let’s look at the steps and ways to unbrick it. Don’t worry, and it is not that tough. Engineers use the same tools that we use.

Method 1: The input method 

Step 1: First, start by connecting the KF to the laptop and then installing the drive; just make sure that the ADB shell is available. 

 Step 2: Then repair settings—DB’s permission after raising the consent again.

adb zergRush /data/local/tmp/.

adb shell “chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/zergRush”

adb shell “./data/local/tmp/zergRush”

adb wait-for-device

adb shell “chown system.sytem /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db”

adb shell “chmod 660 /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db”

adb reboot

Step 3: Next, restart your device, and hopefully, you will find everything okay, and in its place. 

Method 2: If the flashing menu keeps appearing again and again

Step 1: Start by connecting the KF to your laptop and then installing the drive; just make sure the ADB shell is available. 

Step 2:Then directly go to the flashing back the original bootstrap program to correctly guide:

adb shell “dd if=/sbin/

stock recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/mmci-omap-hs.1/by-name/recovery”

adb reboot

Step 3: Finally, restart your device after some time, and you will find everything working. 

Method 3: If the above methods are invalid or if the fast booting goes wrong.

What happens is that sometimes the ADB shell is no longer found, so in this case, you need to try a lot of different steps:

Step 1: Start by clearing all the available user data on your device and repairing the device to boot mode: to do this, you can use the following commands:

fastboot -i 0x1949 -w 

fastboot -i 0x1949 oem idme bootmode 0x4000

fastbooot -i 0x1949 reboot

Step 2: If the above step fails then rewrite the boot image and go for repairing the boot mode:

fastboot -i 0x1949 boot boot.img

fastboot -i 0x1949 -w 

fastboot -i 0x1949 oem idme bootmode 0x4000

fastbooot -i 0x1949 reboot

Step 3: This final method will officially reflash the entire system. Your device will be repaired, free of any bricks, and will work like usual once again. 

If you had mistakenly bricked your box or showed some glitches or you can notice it as dysfunctions, then it is always advised to find the source of the problem first and then identify its cause. It is highly recommended not to jump over to any method before during what is the issue. If you are not confident, then please a technical person to help you out with this.
