What version of android are you using? And did you install the starter kit?

Mine worked fine.. no issues.. I am using "Mele_4.0_V1.3BETA_revised_en_us_4.img"

Also USB mouse connected to devise does not have power.

Is there a way that I can get roll back or use a hardware reset button?

Thanks and Regards,

Thanks a lot Alex! The box is back to life now!

I basically plan to use the box for RTSP streaming. Does anyone know which version has best video quality?
I read somewhere that AOKP has good video?
Currently, there are audio video synch issues and many times the video is 'washed down'.

Thanks for the help!

Varun

I believe everything on page one is quite old, relatively speaking. You'll probably want to focus your attention on the most recent Mele build:

I managed to get a working Android system on SDCard on Mele.
I use the SDCard space (16GB for instance) instead of NAND space (limited to 4GB)

The details are there:
http://tmerle.blogsp...rom-sdcard.html

What for?
- You can have lot of install space depending on how you size the "data" (/data) and "UDISK" (/mnt/sdcard) partitions (I put 10GB but could be more depending on your SDCard size)
I used a SDHC Class 10 to have decent speed.

- you can test and modify a firmware without affecting the one running on NAND. Reverting to the NAND firmware is as simple as removing the SDCard.

I can play now with some fancy firmwares, like CM10 for example (I *need* to know how works JellyBean on this box)

hi

i am trying to use the A method but i have some questions.

"2.- Connect on ethernet."


are we talking about connecting the Mele A2000 to my Windows 7 PC with the ethernet cable here?


3.- Unzip adb_recovery_install.zip
Go to directory \adb_recovery_install\script_dat
Execute HDMI or VGA bat.... this configure the system.

In the same directory with Notepad++ edit the file "script.fex" and change MAC= "00ce39112233"... with our MAC
SAVE.

Then execute edit_bootload.bat to save the configuration.


i assume that this action is performed on my PC and not the Mele right?

and do i need to rezip the files afterwards?


4.- Copy in the root directory of the SD card:
Recovery.img
zip CWM9 or AOKP
zip Gapps.
zip Compatibility.
Insert the SD in the Mele


where did the Recovery.img file come from? it is not directly on the list you made, although i assume it is the file in the MK802_recovery.zip ?


Execute:

install-recovery.bat 192.168.1.XX
The Mele reboots in recovery mode.



i get an "error: device not found" when writing "install-recovery.bat 192.168.1.11" in C:\Users\Myuser\Desktop\adb_recovery_install\ in the CMD prompt..


Again. this is done on my desktop windows 7 PC connected by an Ethernet cable to my Mele A2000

I managed to create a SDCard version of a firmware.
The aim is to run an Android system from SDcard, without touching the NAND flashed firmware.
To revert to the original firmware, simply remove the SDCard, and reboot.
Another advantage is that you increase the Android storage space. In my setup I use a 8GB sdcard (twice storage space as the Mele A2000 NAND size), but you can put a 16GB sdcard if you want.

The data is here: sdcard_Mele_HTPC_20121220_V1.3.tar.bz2

How to generate such a sdcard, under linux only:
- get a 8GB SDCard (not less, the partitions are created depending on this minimal size)
- uncompress the above archive,
- as root, check the SD-Card device number (/dev/sdX), and perform: make DEV=/dev/sdX
- Optionally, mount /dev/sdX1 to edit uEnv.txt that contains the MAC address. Set it to your usual MAC address if needed.
- Once done, put this SDCard into your device, power-on and enjoy.

Beware that a slow SDCard makes slow system... Class 10 card gives good results for me.
You can boot in recovery mode if you replace uEnv.txt by uEnv_recovery.txt; and you can get back in normal mode by replacing uEnv.txt by uEnv_normal.txt

It is a linux archive with a makefile; just do make DEV=/dev/sdX

The details are here, with the original firmware and the PhoenixCard equivalent image:

Hello guys!

I'm having a problem that I hope some one can help me.

Today, after a long wait to receive my mele a2000 I tried to flash de AOKP as it is explained at the first page.

I was able to reboot the mele in recovery mode, however I only installed the gapps, since I hadn't with me the rest of files. After this I tried to reboot the mele in normal mode, but I couldn't, because mele always rebooted in recovery mode. After this I made a complete wipe and disconnected it from power.

Now mele doesn't do anything. When I connect to the power it only shows its blue led, but doesn't show anything on screen.

Can anyone please help me to resolve this problem?

Thankyou

Hi,
please try this:
- open web browser, on google
- search for "youtube "+ your query
- then choose to open with youtube.
Seems that the welcome screen of youtube makes the Mele firmware fail, this workaround makes youtube play directly the video.
Hope this helps...
