Does It Have To Be An SD CARD ?
Well i wiped the box and reinstalled everything. I then went and installed ICE COLD APPS transfer app that basically allows you to have any kind of ftp, ssh etc running. I then got into the box and issued a reset from there and bingo, i could use the toothpick method.
Seems that the bootloader was rooted and whenever it was rebooted, it automatically jumped into the mbox loader.
Can anyone at all recommend a decent Kodi build for an Mxq 805 201d (512mb) that doesn't lag the system to hell.
