Since the update my G Box Q2 is no longer recognized by Google Play store for the purposes of updates. It won't update any of my apps, just says update pending and never downloads. When checking in the settings It says device is uncertified, does anyone have the same problem?
uninstall play store app. It will just revert to the original version and relaunch playstore. Apps should update now

I try to auto update but unable to succeed so I try to updated manually..
I follow all instructions on wiki.matricom but now my update stuck at

I used pen drive for installation

The links don't seem to work on the post.

currently using
firmware - 1.40
android - 4.4.2

I'd like to update the firmware. Had no luck with my 4gb usb flash drive. Just gives me signature verification error (Wikipedia page says this happens on a USB drive, so im getting an SD card). But in the mean while can someone update the links to this firmware please

Reason mainly for the update is for KODI. Read a bunch of reviews and it refuses to update on my current firmware I've established hence why i'd like to upgrade. Used Kodi for a good year no problems until they launched the new release.

Currently the only thing I'm using is Plex which I've hooked up to my server in London, thou i'd like to be able to use kodi again with my beloved "exodus" app.

Thanks

Did you use the new links provided by Vince2000 above? I just tried them and they work. I then tried the old links and got same error as you reported.

I have been attempting to update to 1574 from 1507 for months.

I cannot get into the bootloader. I used the cut qtip to depress the button inside.

Here are my steps.
1. Unplug Q
2. Insert SDCard
3. Depress button until I hear click
4. While holding button plug Q in
5. Hold button and pray that I get into the bootloader and not to the same old white splash screen.
6. Release button, hear click of release.
7. Repeat all steps above like an insane person b/c I expect something to miraculously change.

Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong? Or is it the system, the firmware, or a combination of us all.

After, what must have been. 30+ attempts I finally got into the bootloader. I attempted to install from the sdcard and I got an error.
e: footer is wrong
e: signature verification failed
Installation aborted.
e: cannot load volume/misc!

I d/l the file from the wiki page. Attempted to d/l file from this thread but received an error. I already had the file on my comp but tried the newer d/l.

What do I do now?

After installing the update, the blue 'g' light would still stay on when suspending. I tried it many times and it would stay on. Then after hard rebooting the gbox, it now seems to be working correctly and turning the light off in suspend.
