    I wanted to upgrade from ATV 1.2.5.6 to ATV version by E_CS base on v1.2.6.0 and I see the 1.2.6.0 stock option. Did I get anything wrong with the update? I think I'm going back to 1256.

    Let's see if I understood your problem with ATV version by E_CS base on v1.2.6.0.

    Q: Player loading stop on Egreat Desktop and doesn't go back to Android TV Launcher?
    A: Workaround press Home button on remote to switch to Android TV Launcher.

    Other know question(situation)
    Q: Why VFD display show Hello(player A5/A10) or EGREAT(player A11)?
    A: Manually need open EgreatPlayer wait for loading Egreat Desktop and then press Home remote button.

    Because of beta stage for Egreat f/w v1.2.6.0 I didn't spend too much time for fining tuning of waiting script for boot completed and Egreat load.

    I tried to reinstall the ATV version by E_CS base on v1.2.6.0 and all the same. Everything is like rom stock.Absolut everything. I went back to ATV v1.2.5.6, which is very good for me.

    Tried but doesn’t work. It seems android makes an update but then the system is the same.
    What I did: dowloaded file cfw for egreat a5, it is a folder named update. Zipped into update.zip, then put into a usb stick and update via android adbanced setting. System reboots, shows progress on update, but then is the same of when started.

    Its got to be the way you are downloading it. Its not a update folder its already a update.zip try downloading it with a different browser.

    Maybe its also somthing to do with the A5 version i have the A10 update running fine..
    My only niggle is the live channels on 1 of my apps does not work properly like i mentioned before, and that the firmware is built using tablet firmware ( get the blue button on the top of the media player)

    @Ramtech
    Live Channels for android is only ATV(com.google.android.tv) version, please post a screenshot Egreat vs U5PVR. I don't understand what you mean.

    I know its a 1 time thing but its the simple things that are the most annoying, the fact that its a media player that should not have to have a mouse connected at any point..
    My shield Tv and U5pvr dont do it at all both based on the same firmware Android 7. The u5 also has a HiSilicon Hi3798C V200 and works well on Android 7.

    NO. This f/w have support for DRM L3 HDCP unprotected level.
    - Netflix 4K request 4K display, 4K subscription, DRM L1 , HDCP-2.2 protection level and licensed device to be supported.
    - Amazon only few device have supported except their own box.
