I bought the TVStik from the Geek.com (http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=ANDROID-TV-STIK). I have since updated the ROM to the one mentioned earlier in this thread (version V1.0-4096-8189_en). The OS in the new ROM is the same as the one the TVStik came with (4.0.4) but the ROM itself is a older version. I would like to go back to the ROM that the device came with. Would anyone happen to have this ROM available?
I flashed the ROM to be able to root the device but turns out that this ROM is also not rooted. I would like to install VNC server on my device but no luck so far.

Thanks for any help.

I got new firmware. Updating from internal menu by USB PENDRIVE. Exact copy udpate.zip onto USB PENDRIVE and run procedure. For me, nothing interesting. Still 4.0.4 ICS.

CABLETECH HDMI DONGLE FIRMWARE
THANK YOU

Will install tonight, any changes as far as Android Market (Play Store)?

Also any chance for someone with slightly more skills than myself to make any tweaks?

Ok so my stick won't take this firmware for some reason. Frustrating. Is there contact details for someone who i can talk to about this?

Also as a side note I've created an all-encompassing thread on this model over at XDA Dev here -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2105279

When I follow the instructions to upgrade it looks like it's working, the device restarts into the upload screen, looks like it completes, but when it reboots it ends up the same version with no changes. I can load the stick into it's bootloader. I can wipe it via ADB. ADB won't allow me to load the Update.zip as it's missing the android-info.txt or android-product.txt :/

I manage to update mine but it's still 4.0.4
Before launching the upgrade in the about I got
Model Number : TCC8925_HDMI_DONGLE
Android Version 4.0.4
Baseband Version : Unknown
Kernel version : 3.0.8-tcc [email protected] #154 Mon Oct 8 10:53:30 CST 2012
Build number full_tcc8920st_emmc-userdebug 4.0.4 IMM76D eng.sunny.20121008.105834 test-keys

After upgrade
Model Number : ANDROID_HDMI_DONGLE
Android Version 4.0.4
Baseband Version : Unknown
Kernel version : 3.0.8-tcc [email protected] #364 Fri Nov 16 20:51:49 CST 2012
Build number Android-eng 4.0.4 IMM76D IMM76D eng.root.20121128.105154

So the new firmware seems to be newer but I can't see any news on this firmware

I also tried to change some stuff in the zip and sign it again but I didn't manage to update

BTW this is the Stick that I have

Thanks Powerkill - I'm chasing down the vendor on Skype, maybe I can get out of them a different version (or at least one that works for my stick). Funnily enough they also make the CX-01 which looks to be exactly the same except different outer casing and a Fn button.

Tempted to install the CX-01 ROM onto there with the flash tool.

edit: Compared the specs of the 2 and they look identical. I'm going to go for it. Will report back.

Here's where I'm at. Can't flash CX-01 firmware, FWDN just will not detect this device. Can't flash anything. Put it into fastboot to at least flash the boot.img that I had. Bricked. Won't get out of fastboot screen. Contact Plute directly via Skype, although friendly and trying to help, supposedly there are too many variations in the hardware they distribute and can't supply firmware.

If anyone here could possible generate a recovery.img from their stick for me to flash, at least give it one last try, it would be greatly appreciated.

Above shows you how to generate a Nandroid backup. If you could please do that for me I'd appreciate it. Just want to give it one last go.

Rozebrany Cabletech URZ0193, warto na co zwrócić uwagę to rozwiązanie z brakiem pamięci NAND, została przez producenta zastąpiona drugim gniazdem micorSD. W moim modelu była karta SanDisk 4GB, ale w innym już ich bez firmowa.

Mnie osobiście udało się "uszkodzić" urządzenie 5 razy, ale od razu zaznaczam że nie z mojej winy ;P IMHO serwisant twierdzi że uszkodziłem bootloader, ale mnie wydaje się e padła po prostu karta. Nowa wersja v1.1 póki co działa drugi dzień


Po wcześniejszych doświadczeniach postanowiłem zrobić obraz wewnętrznej karty microSD poleceniem dd (lub pod win hdd raw copy tool), obraz ładnie zapisałem na dysk, ale gdy chciałem przywrócić obraz na drugą kartę (też 4GB) dd wyrzuciło że nie zapisało ok 3kb danych na nowej karcie. Efekt łatwy do przewidzenia, urządzenie się nie uruchomiło. W rozmowie z serwisem dowiedziałem się że używają sprzętowego klonowania.

Programowanie przez FWDN nie jest możliwe, gdyż brak jest przycisku Fn, wewnątrz taż go nie ma... widać na załączonych zdjęciach. Może ma ktoś jakieś pomysły odnośnie wgrania innego softu?

Google Translated

URZ0193 Cabletech demolished, it is what to look for is a solution to the lack of NAND flash memory, has been replaced by the manufacturer micorSD second slot. In my model was a 4GB SanDisk card, but in others they have no company.

I personally managed to "damage" the device 5 times, but once I select that was not my fault: P IMHO technician says that hurt the bootloader, but it seems that I just fell card. The new version v1.1 which runs until the other day


After previous experience I decided to make an image of internal microSD card dd command (or the M$win hdd raw copy tool ), the image nice wrote on the drive, but when I wanted to restore the image on the second card (or 4GB) dd not enrolled thrown about 3KB of data in a new tab. The result is easy to predict, the device will not be launched. In an interview with the service I learned that the use of cloning hardware.

Programming by FWDN is not possible, as there is no Fn button inside taz he is not ... you can see in the pictures. Maybe someone has some ideas on upload another firmware?

Any way of getting these to work via USB Ethernet? I bought an adaptor which works perfectly with my Flame tablet but the stick just switches off WiFi and then does nothing.
Failing that, can the WiFi reception be improved at all?
In fact, anyone still supporting these sticks?

I am also a owner of CX-01 stick, and also looking any update for it. still using 4.0.x default android.

I think that there is a pontential on this stick.

4.1.1 android would be nice. And if somebody knows, how to fix cx-01 poor wifi to better is would be very nice...
