It looked promising but now I get an error that says:

"Don't install this package (Tue Mar 1 17:52:21 EST 2016) over newer build........"

Yep , no workie.

"failed to mount /dev/block/mmcblkopl"

so selected boot system now

tried again and manually pointed it to the SD card location .

"cannot load volume /misc! "

is there any chances if the unit is left on it will load 2.1 if it had 2.0 ??

I assume using system updates and pointing it to the zip file won't work either ?

Got the OTA update on the Android version twice now, but I dont think the firmware updated with it... The CEC thing fixed my sound once, switched everything to, im guessing Korean, I switched it back, sound worked, restarted box, no sound again and the CEC option didnt fix it this time. Trying first firmware update by hand until the good version of the new one is back up...and i see it is so imma try it.
