MK802 III Recovery method
Notice: when your MK802 III has following issues, pls solve these issues by recovery/update methods:
1. After boot, there is no signal;
2. There is only boot screen;
3. System running very slow, crashing;
4. Can’t find the wireless network equipment, or can’t connect wireless;
5. When installation apps, player loss power unexpected and cant boot up.
6. TF card update failed and can’t boot again.

Recovery/update steps
Firstly, download recovery tooland recovery firmware,(img file) from official website or get from sales.

Download, decompression the folder and find to double click, below screen will pop out, then add img file.

Second, connect MK802 III with computer.
Pls provide 1pcs thin metal stick
Remove the bottom cover of MK802 III,as below,
Take out the USB cable(Mirco USB to USB A cable),connect with USB OTG of the unit,
Then according to below indication, put the thin metal stick between 6th and 7th pin of the flash.

Don’t loose the stick, at same time, connect the USB cable with computer, after 3-5s,loose the stick.

There will pop out a window guide to install new HW driver, please install according to below step one by one:

Select “next”

Choose the option as picture, then click browse, find outfrom recovery tool folder, then click “next” to install.

When finished installation, the computer will pop out below window, then click “finish”

After installation, the “connect device” icon on the “batchtool” will changed to blue, as below:

Then Click “update” for recovery, as below .

This procedure will cost 3 minutes also, pls wait patiently, during recovery/upgrade, don’t remove the usb cable.

When this prompt window appears, then means recovery is successful, pull out USB cable, then total process is finished.

1. Same computer just need install driver for one time;
2. First turn on the unit after recovery/update will cost more long time, and even occur some lag issue, it’s normal since internal apk file need be decompressed and occupy RAM, after 5 minutes, then system running well. So don’t worry about that.
