    I have a Venz V3 box which had Openelec installed on it - i put an Android system on it because i wanted the functionality of the app i could install - but i found it too sluggish for this particular box - i now want to install Openelec on it again

    PLEASE CAN SOMEONE ADVISE ME ON HOW TO INSTALL AND UPDATE THIS BOX - USING A WINDOWS 10 COMPUTER AND USING AN SD CARD

    This is the box

    i found the biggest problem when i did a mx 3 was finding the openelec rom, i found the best way was to extract the 3 files to a usb stick and do the toothpick method of booting into the update mode then wipe data and clear cache then navigate to the files on the usb to flash the openelec rom

    I found the Openlec rom no problem - 6.0. is out now - my problem is that my reset button has broken off inside the box - not secured very well

    So i need another method of getting at the folders and flashing it - if it be Openelec or Android

    Cheers for the reply anyway bud

    if you have a usb otg port then usb burning tool for windows might do the job, there are a few vids on youtuube on how to use it

    Many thanks 27mark - do the roms have to be specific to the model or just relevant to the chip

    not 100% but i think so due the box onboard stuff like getting the wi fi and remote to work, i only think this because i know i cant use the m8 rom on my m8s and there are different roms for the mx3 1gb and 2gb ram models and even the mx3 1gb has 2 different wi fi chips.
    it might be worth contacting the seller of the box and telling them its stuffed and would they mind sending you the latest openelec rom
