Also having problems with Android 7 stuck on green android.  Read  on  another thread to reload last firmware 08 but that stuck on green android too.

Tried multiple time but update file not seen.

Have used same drive for all previous updates with no problems.

Anything else I should try?

The box is running 1.0.8 ok but can't do any updates!

Thanks.

It sounds like the Q5 Pro isn't recognising the update file.

The update.zip file needs to be extracted from our download archive. No renaming.

I've just tested the process again on a Q5 Pro and I'm confident it works.

Yes I am using a mac so the update.zip file is shown in a folder with a readme.txt. File
I have copied the update.zip to the epmty fat32 formatted  drive.

Same as before.  Have run diagnostics on drive and it passes.

Hmmm!

I can't explain it.

We've flashed several Q5 Pro here and it works.

I think we should wait for more feedback on the forum.

There is some talk in the Q10 Pro thread about it not working if you have the CS custom firmware installed.

I can't see why this would be, but if you do have this firmware installed then it would be worth installed official 1.0.8 and then attempting the upgrade to 2.0.0 again.

Just succeeded after 4th attempt using original thumb drive, can't explain why it didn't work on previous attempts except possibly corrupt download initially.

The zip inside a zip should make corrupt downloads impossible (zip files have built in CRC).

Glad you got it working.

Yes working fine, except for one small problem when using Media Player with a letterbox format film it seems to keep defaulting to full screen making round objects look oval, need to quit full screen each time opening a film, anyone else found this?
