Resolving your weather refresh issue consists of 3 options;

Option A; Access the weather app settings and manually input your zip code.

Option B; Access the weather app settings and set the refresh interval to ‘Never’.

Option C; *Last resort* Roll back your device to a more stable version of firmware such as 2.1.1.

Hello please be advised by the following instructions to resolve your weather refresh issues on your Q1 or Q2 device.

Required for this process,

Here is a video tutorial to give you a visual representation on Re Flashing process.

• G-box Q/Q²
• An empty SD card (formatted to FAT32 with at least 2 GB of memory and no more than 32 GB of memory)
• Computer with SD card slot
• Google Chrome browser (using Internet Explorer or safari to download these files can cause complications with this process)
First start by downloading the firmware files. You can download the firmware by clicking the following link.

The files that will be needed are located here; ... 2hTIa?dl=0

Once you have downloaded all 4 files, you will copy and paste them onto your empty SD card.

(there must be no other files on the SD card)

After you have placed the files onto your SD card, you will begin the toothpick method.

1. Disconnect power from G-box Q².
2. Insert SD card with firmware files into card slot on the side of your G-box Q².
3. Insert toothpick or similar object into "reset" hole on the back of your G-box Q², until you feel a click.
4. Once you feel the click of the reset button, hold it down with toothpick while reconnecting the power to your G-box Q².
(you will hold this down for roughly 20-30 seconds or until you see your screen change.)

This should complete the 5.1.1 Lollipop upgrade/Firmware update on your G-box Q/Q²
