    Hello!

    I upgraded my mk808 with a firmware called "mk808_1416mhz_1080p" which caused it to not start anymore. The led would light for 2 seconds then nothing...
    Then I couldn't do anything with it connected to the computer, everything just failed.

    Found a stock firmware that I actually was able to flash with but still it wouldn't work when connecting to the power connection but with the cable in the OTG instead everything is working fine except wifi.... I can't even enable it...

    Any suggestions what to try?

    EDIT: the firmware I got it to work with is mk808_300j1_27-10-2012, kernel: 3.0.8+ if that means anything
    Thanks in advance!

    Which Model is it really MK808?
    Where did you buy it ? Did you know your built NUmber and Kernel Version before Flashing ?
    Could you Upload 2 Pictures from inside ?

    There are more of this Model coming from different Manufacutrers.
    Can you get it into Flash Mode again?! Try this...
    Iy Yes you can flash the Correct Rom. I think you have the false One or not correctly flashed.

    It is the SainSmart mk808 with bluetooth. I bought it from a swedish site.
    Im sorry but what do you mean if I can Upload 2 Pictures?

    I can get it into flash mode yes, and I agree with you that is probobly the wrong rom now but I don't know how to know which one is the correct :)

    So then you have the MK808B not the MK808 !!!
    But normally your ROM should work, even without Wifi. So the Rom you got is not correct.
    I mean, you need to find out which Device you really have, there are more MK808B out on the Market.
    Important is, which Wifi Chipset you have, so open your Case and take a look !!!
    This is the Way we find out what Model you have.

    If you got RK903, RK902 or RK901 WiFi Chipset, try this One... ( I think this is it, but Chipset is important ! )

    This is your Model correct ? : http://www.sainsmart.com/sainsmart-...l-core-a9-1gb-ddr3-8gb-european-standard.html
    Theres also a Firmware Download at the Bottom of this Page.
    I would say, this SainSmart SS808 should be a labeled MK808, so I cant see Bluetooth here....
    But notice, everything you do is on your won Risk... I´m not responsible for any Problem that occur !

    If this did not work, I think you need Support from SainSmart. They only buy Products, label it and sell it...
    So your Hardware should be on of the normal MK808B are out on the Market.

    Well, I tried now and had high hopes about it but it's still the same. Can not activate wifi or bluetooth.
    I opened it up but I couldn't see what model of the wifi chipset this one has so I took a chance on the one you linked.
    Edit: I have the mk808b that's called "fake/clone" I understand now. The one with mediatek wifi chipset. So I got it working again now but I would really like to find a better firmware then the stock one.

    Also I find it weird that I only can start it with the USB>power in the OTG slot.

    Thanks for all your help anyways!

    Anyone tried Roms on the Clone, did you click Upgrade or Restore at RKBatchTool ???

    Maybe this makes a Difference.

    i guess that the manufacturers got the wrong mark on otg and use.
    you may try whether otg can read the u disk's data or not.
