Trawling the internet and being an Avid Android fan i came across Maplins and Found this:
So read a few things about it and off in the car i go lol
Last one in the shop , so quickly grabbed it up and off home.
(Wife not happy )
Plugged it in , Android TV hmmm i'm liking this , Running on Android 2.2 , i soon managed to get the hang of the Air Controller
Clicked on Market , hmmm where were all the Apps ! only about 20 listed , not good , thinking now whats the point of an Android box without working market.
Email sent to Maplins , Reading the book i managed to find the Manufacturer and went to the website , intrigued i checked for updates , sure enough Android 2.4 update was there , but would it work ?
Maplins reply " Sorry this Android box in not compatible with Android Market"
"what the !"
So now i'm thinking time for it to go back in the box , But first , i may as well try the 2 updates from the manufacturers website see what happens.
Downloaded and installed onto SD card update 1
Arrrrrrrr disaster ! looping boot screen failed firmware update.
Oh well may as well try the actual firmware update nothing to lose , as i would take it back as faulty.
Update firmware 2.
10 minutes later , Full success Android 2.4 , Full Market Access
So let me tell you about this little box of tricks.
Air controller with keyboard
WiFi and Ethernet
SD card slot
Full Market Access
Full customizable Screens
Full Web Access
Many free games
Multimedia player (all film types)
Basically any App on the market will work , apart from Direct phone type Apps
youtube a little glitchy , but works perfect from web side.
Angry Birds on 47" screen is great fun
