  • What OS do you want for your MK808B Plus? I have the Android, Ubuntu, OpenELEC, and LibreELEC images for this device. I can post to Dropbox.


  • Which OS is better and works without problems?

    I would like to try OpenELEC or LibreELEC.

    I want OS to boot from SD or USB.

    Which version of android do you have?

    That would depend upon your usage. My stick has been retired for two or three years, I don't even remember what OS it is running. I used it mainly as my Tvheadend DVR server, not even connected to a TV.


    I will post all the files that I show in that pic, and you can try each one.

  • One of the files that I uploaded is the LibreELEC tar file. You can burn that tar file to a microSD card using either Etcher, or Rufus. Inset the card, and depress the reset button with a paper clip as you apply power to your device. Been two or three years since I used that stick, so my instructions may be missing some items..........


    Perhaps others on here can give you better instructions.........


    Here is my video that I made almost 4 years ago about this stick running OpenELEC, I believe... I am not sure if I just used the TAR file to upgrade to LibreELEC, or I did a clean install.
