Turn off your device and remove the power cable.
You will need to find and use the reset/recovery switch on your DroidBOX®, its location and operation depends on your model:
For an iMX6 (and iMX6Q), you’ll need to insert the match into the socket marked AV on the back of your iMX6, and keep pushing it in until you feel/hear a slight click. You’ll also find the switch hidden in the same place (AV Socket) for M8 models that have M8N printed on their label.
The T8, T8-S and T8-S Plus switch is marked RESTORE, behind the 3 USB sockets on the right.
On a Q7 device, look on the right hand side, behind the USB sockets. A biro is normally perfect for holding down the switch.
If you have an M6 model, it is again on the right hand side behind the USB sockets, but you’ll need something sturdy, and thinner than most biro tips. I personally filed down a match stick (I prefer it to cocktail sticks as they are a bit more sturdy).
If you have a V9 stick, check the end that has the HDMI socket. You should see on one side of the device there is a blue LED when the power is connected and the device is turned on. Below that, in the lower left corner, you’ll see another small hole. Insert a needle (CAREFULLY) to hold down the switch.Keeping the switch held down, reattach the power lead. If your model doesn’t automatically turn on, please do so via your remote control/power switch (KEEPING THE RECOVERY/RESET SWITCH HELD DOWN).
You should see a menu appear on your TV after 5-30 seconds – once this occurs, you can let go of the switch you’ve been holding down.If you don’t know what to do at this point, I would recommend not selecting any of the options, and checking with the person who told you to access the recovery menu, exactly what you should do. If you’ve been told to perform a factory reset by a member of staff/knowledgable forum member, or are comfortable reconfiguring Android devices already, please…Select the Wipe data/factory reset option and confirm you’re certain. Allow the process to complete and reboot at the end. Proceed through any set up screens offered, and once you can see the launcher’s homescreen on your TV, please wait 20 minutes. Don’t click on anything and definitely please do NOT reboot at this point. You need to give the device time to re-install applications automatically.How to Factory Reset DroidBOX® iMX6 using the recovery meny:How to factory reset DroidBOX® T8 or T8-S from Android or using the recovery menu:
After 20 minutes have passed (assuming your WiFi/ethernet is functioning already), you can now sign into Google’s Play Store to allow auto-updates (see https://droidbox.co.uk/blog/googles-play-store-signing-in-and-auto-updates/ ).
Please note that on most iMX6 models, pressing the remote control’s OK button does not select any options, you’ll need to press the RETURN (go back) button to do this.
