I think the v0.03 build is the base firmware for flashing if you've bricked the Amlogic M6 or GBox MX2 updating to this custom build, but will see if I can find it from the original source (and grab v1.01 whilst I'm there).

v0.03 here: http://www.digitalworldz.co.uk/index.php?resources/2404/

v1.01 is over our 100MB file size limit.

Thanks for the file it works to a fashion but is not stable, I don't think that I was clear. What I'm trying to do is convert an MX2 from android to linux I think I need a different file. have looked everywhere but cannot find a solution that works. Any help will put me out of my misery. Thanks Blanno
