Normally, you would just use the firmware update file that contains the system, boot, u-boot and recovery partition (in this release) by following those steps in a Linux or Windows PC:

  1. Extract rooted_fixed_rt-M500a_v1.65.4_20130118a_updated.7z
  2. Copy the files to a microSD card
  3. Insert the microSD card into GK802 microSD slot.
  4. Insert the microUSB cable halfway in GK802 (Do not power on)
  5. Press the recovery button (located on the right side of the microUSB port, when the plastic part of the casing faces down)  with a sharp object (I used a toothpick).
  6. Power the device, and keep pressing the recovery button 1 or 2 seconds, and connect it to the HDMI port of your TV

  7. Select “Update all images” with the mouse, wait for the firmware update to complete, and click on “Reboot system” to start your new firmware.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

  11. Hi Geekbuying,

    In the future, instead of only providing factory update files, could you also provide a link to full factory images. The recovery button on some GK802 devices are broken and those users are unable to update their devices to the latest firmware. Besides, I prefer to update the GK802’s internal micro SDHC card using WinImage.

    Thank you.
