    Not sure if its possible as the recovery tool needs abd to connect

    Likewise I havent gotten the firmware for 55", as im also using 55" and wanting to downgrade or wait for a root tool to update for firmware 1.1.82.

    But since you mitv wont boot maybe you can try the 49" firmware to see if it is possible to boot up and use abd settings if it does, still looking around for other firmwares.

    And I cant make a .img file with my 55" yet. So sorry...

    Can you boot into recovery? Hold home and menu button while you boot the tv up. Wipe all data and try, if you do get it working possible to pack an img file of your 1.1.70.

    Thanks@ Kaitozaki

    My MiTV still boot up, but only if I boot to firmware 1.1.82.

    If I choose 1.1.70 it will not boot up (yes i can boot in to recovery so i can select which system i like to boot), if wipe all data in recovery, the 1.1.70 will boot up and working normal, but if I turn off the TV by use remote, it will not boot up anymore. Don't know if i screwed up somewhere.

    The problem is i dont want to use firmware 1.1.82, course it unrootable, it also can't play youtube video, it also force show up a stupid ADS every time when I turn on the TV (it countdown in 5 seconds then hide the ADS, I dont know why Xiaomi do this, it is a pain to see the ADS 4,5 time everyday when turn on the TV)

    I'm worries about use 49" firmware, if it orverwrite the recovery, there will be a brick TV for me :p

    Yes the ads are abit a disappointment, as such as the unrootable 1.1.82.

    Could it be your remote?

    If so try to reconnect your remote there is an option in thw settings, if it doesnt work then its best to try a full wipe to regain factory settings.

    And also 1.1.82 does not have adb settings, dont know why they took that away. I tried connecting a usb type A to my imac but it doesnt connect so cables are useless.

    No im sure it is not my remote problem.

    I think it is because i have delete some app in my 1.1.70 ROM (ex: MiScreensave) I think, if you have that app please send me :(

    Or if you can access your 1.1.70 ROM please zip the folder system/priv-app if possible :(

    Root just helps to unlock system privileges... I dont think it effects kodi...maybe you could try to reinstall...

    So far no problems for me...only finding the right google play store and chrome...I updated my working chrome with another app...now I need to find the same app version to get it working...

    I have the Mi TV 2S 48". I had rooted it (kingroot) and started getting the google apps installed, ran into an issue with it, so booted into the second system (via recovery) which booted up no problem. Second system was out of date (which is expected based on how the TV works), so I clicked to update it. 30 minutes of downloading and doing stuff, it gets to 95% then stops but I cannot figure out what it is saying (I don't have the second system in english, it is a factory setup).
    If I try to boot into the second system, the second one sits there with a big black screen for a few seconds then boots into recovery again.

    Anybody know how I can fix this? My thoughts are to root the first setup, install terminal emulator, mount the second system's /system partition and remove su and possibly copy all of the stuff from the working /system overtop of the broken /system (dd perhaps?). My fear is then I will have both partitions rooted which I have read is a bad idea.

    Any thoughts before I begin this adventure?

    EDIT: my bad... should have snooped on the forums a bit more. Found a post that says to install kingroot on system1 followed by super su and super sume then uninstall kingroot, super sume and lastly super su. Then install update and system 2 should boot updated and system1 will be old still.
    sorry for the broken link, I'm still a newb on the site so I can't post links.

    Oh you have the problem too? I rooted my Xiaomi TV2 55" with kingroot and since then my tv also flashes (screen goes black, for a second or two, then comes back), sometimes the TV doesn't turn on after going into Standby mode (have to physically flip the power switch on and off to resolve), and some Xiaomi stock apps crash on launch for video content.

    I've since un-rooted using Kingroot, and even done the in-menu Factory Reset, I haven't seen the screen flashing recently, but the stock apps still crash.

    I am also unable to get into Recovery mode to try the Full Wipe (does the in-menu Factory Reset do the same thing?), and am stuck with a 80%-functioning Xiaomi TV2 55". The same stock video apps on my TV2 40" works without crashing, but I never rooted that one.

    Help, anybody?

    Hello, I am writing for a vital information on the international version box me. I would use the xiaomi mi box tv (latest version whit dts/dolby and 4k) only to see films from external harddrive. Do you know if the box reads harddrive formatted ntfs of magnitude 4.5 terabytes with an external power supply? otherwise I will be forced to cancel tonight.

    Hello All,

    I really need this group's advise and help. My MiTV 3 60'' is not turning on. [stuck on Mi logo]

    TV version:
    Model = MiTV3 60''
    Software version = 1.2.0

    TV is stuck on Mi Logo and I see black screen.

    What I have tried already:
    1) Tried to boot into recovery removed all data. restarted but still stuck on Mi logo screen
    2) Tried to boot into recovery switch to system 1. restarted but still stuck on Mi logo screen
    3) Tried to boot into recovery switch to system 2. restarted but still stuck on Mi logo screen

    What did I do before TV broke:
    1) I changed build.props file and when I restarted the TV it got stuck on Mi logo screen

    What do I need now:
    1) Recovery image or compatible original firmware to flash the TV to its original state.
    2) Access TV through ADB to restore original build.props file
    3) Any other suggestions

    I really can not send the TV back to china to get it fixed so any help from this community will be highly appreciated.

    Many thanks
