TUTORIAL: Mecool M8S Pro Update Recovery – Nexus Firmware

The Me-Cool M8S Pro features Amlogic’s flagship ‘as of 2017’ the S912. This TV box was first featured around the start of 2017 and has since become quite popular, due to it’s high performance and reasonable price tag. The launch of the M8S Pro’s successor, the M8S Pro L has seen the older M8S Pro become somewhat outdated. The L model features improved DRM, meeting Googles Widevine level 1 status which means it can run Netflix correctly as well as other applications requiring this level of DRM.

Me-Cool have of course failed to release any new firmware that addresses this older model’s lack of DRM support. We have have seen frequent firmware updates and a developer over on freaktab has taken this firmware and given it much needed make over in the style of Pure Nexus. This firmware provides a pretty smooth and slicks user experience over stock android firmware for the M8S Pro.

The below video tutorial will show you how to install this firmware onto your Mecool M8S Pro S912 TV Box. Their is a number of different way to install this firmware, which I will outline below.

(1) The first way is to simply download the ZIP update file from the links below and use the Mecool’s M8S Pro stock updater app to install. Simply download the ZIP file and place onto a USB or SD memory device and insert into your M8S, then simply open the updater application and choose install from ZIP. The system will do the rest and install the firmware for you, you do not need to unzip or do anything else

(2) Amlogic Boot Card maker can also be used to install this file, we have created a guide on using boot card maker just here. This guide also uses the M8S Pro, so will come in handy when putting the guide into action.

(3) The final way to install this firmware is to use Amlogic USB Burning tool, not the friendliest of tools to use but is one of the more common ways of installing firmware onto Amlogic TV Box’s.
