7. Select Format and wait for it to finish

8. Double Click on the SD card to open it

9. Right click and select paste. This will paste the files to the SD card.

10. Be sure each file on your card is named exactly like this factory_param_update.aml
recovery.img  This is opposed to recovery.img (1) that one number that often gets added to files when they are downloaded will make all the difference in the world when you try to upload the new firmware. It took me a lot of tries before I finally thought of that. You can see that in the image we posted in the instructions.

11. remove the SD card and place it into the SD card slot of the G-Box Q (UPSIDE DOWN)

12. Power on your G -Box Q and navigatge to system settings.

14. Let the system take it from here. The Android man will load and the process will begin. It’s best if you just walk away. Make sure the system stays powered on during this or you risk bricking the system.
