Hello,

I'm search for a tutorial to how unbrick my tv box by UART mode because this box is not working with usb burning tool.
In the past I try to install super SU and since then the box only turn light red and I get errors by doing usb rewrite .img

My pcb not show any info about TX, RX and VCC. Im using a usb to UART FTDI FT232RL. I read many places in the web but I cant find more info, video and tutorials about it.

I got all itens for do this, but no info about how to connect usb adapter to pcb of tv box. Is there anyone who can help me?

Thank you. I try again to flash my tv box by usb burning tool with a new cable usb 3.0 and got some errors. But what definitely works for me was disable Windows Defender, all options. So then it burn and unbrick my tv box! Best cheers
