i ran the ota-update yesterday.
Unfortunately the update stopped at 45% missing an update package.

The device seems bricked now, showing only the grey Android logo.
So far i tried formatting and playing back the hole image to the sd-card
but the openhour is stuck at the grey screen.

Any ideas what went wrong or i could try?

Have you tried a different sd card and rom? Make sure you do it correctly with the correct file, if you usually use otg you may not be familiar.

This is why i never use otg and simply use the sd card image.

Read the wiki re adb bridge and see what it says re recovery. Using the adb it should be possible but i'm not expert your own thread mat get ypu better advice and i would start one in th android hardware section.

Thx, the sdcard was corrupted.
I bought a new one which works fine.
So, Over-the-Air updates can damage my sd-card Confused

The thing I'm wondering about is when those things listed as "known issues" is going to be fixed? Thats the problems I have with mine since the start, to be completely honest. I'm actually quite dissapointed with this player.

RE: 20150601 (1.0.27) - Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
The Known Issues relay on the chip manufacturer Rockchip. Rockchip have been busy getting the next Android update ready for this chip so their line of thought is why fix something when it may break when updating the OS. The long awaiting Android OS Lollipop update has been given to the box makes now and we expect to see something pretty soon but remember that the OHC firmware has some 'hacks' for things like resizing etc. in the current firmware, so that will have to be written in unless its one of the improvements brought by lollipop.

You haven't made any posts asking for help or how to get things working or better? Whats the problem apart from the Known Issues. Mine is the looping of audio it drives me mad but someone reported that it was not an issue on the stock 8Gb SD card so off to test that theory as im desperate. On the half full side of things very impressed with the live streaming and the addons in spmc. The box is more than a set-top box its a mini-pc so it takes some getting used to coming from a set-top box its more like have a phone.

Yes of course, well my biggest problem is that the audio crackles and makes high pitch noises and goes in and out (not always) but often enough to annoy me. The problem is more significant over HDMI. And also that it sometimes goes out of sync. Also this happens more often when using HDMI for audio.

Im running S/PDIF now and its not at often when running that setup.

Any indication of the release of a new firmware anytime soon? It's been more than a month since the last release, so looking back over the last few releases I would expect something new to be released quite soon.

We are thinking that they must be working hard at trying to get Lollipop bugs ironed out before making a release that includes it. They did mention a new framework and also that RK were not fixing any issues in KK any longer and getting lollipop up and running.

It was released to box makers last month and you can get feedback from RK3288 development board users on lollipop over at the likes of Freaktab.

You can actually get feedback on the r89 box, Wasser has produced 5 working betas of 5.1 lollipop in the last month alone,infront of the curve i think?

Wasser is not a box maker is he? He's a talented individual that has virtually taken over firmware development for one of the box makers from my reading. Could be wrong but that's what I've seen/read at Freaktab.

Forget the griping tell us what bugs and improvements lollipop looks to be bringing Idea

Yea, so a commercial manufacturer should be able to achieve these results 10 times faster. Maybe Open Hour has no more money for ther one programmer in timbuktu, so we have to wait endless for a working box.

Well Beelink obviously cannot and unlike CM this is not their first Rockchip Android box, Wasser has taken over their firmware development.

Do you really think that Lollipop will totally resolve all of the Android OS problems with AV? I don't but I'm reading about Windows coming to the RK3288.

Do you think that rushing out a buggy version will give the booboys less or more ammo than waiting until it has some semblance of improvement over KK?

RK3288 means that we get the same features on each box. In fact we got some things earlier on our boxes and at times the OHC ROM was being run on other boxes. Its swings and roundabouts.

Cue booboys..........

I still remember the meaning of "Willem55" Andoid 5 will be the solution for for most of our problems.....

In September the Chameleon will celebrate his 1 year useless birthday.

Great Job!
