Can I install v2H via zip version from Update&Backup?

Post by baruchin » Wed Feb 13, 2019 6:55 pm

Context: Nvidia Shield user here. A friend of mine was about to throw away a S905X 1g/8g box but instead of doing that, he decided to give it to me to find if it was useful at all. I checked the poor specs but decided to give atvXperience a shot and put this box on my children room.

Now my doubt:
I see that on final version Mega link, there are .img and .zip version. I already watched and read instructions to flash image file via USB Burning tool and a PC. But, I was wondering if it's possible to just use .zip version via the Update&Backup app on this box. Do I just need to throw the .zip file on a mSD card or USB pen drive and update using that file? Or is using the .img file method mandatory?

Thank you for your support and really thrilled if I can make this low end box some kind of use.

There are some issues with v2H .ZIP images, use only USB Burning Tool method.
