Postby hvolks » Tue Mar 12, 2013 6:24 am

Hi

I seem to have bricked my Prometheus when trying to upgrade..
When I power on .. nada.. blue light does not flick on or off..

I was wondering if anyone had any tricks or tips to restore..

Happy to open the box if needed, I did post on the Facebook site but I am waiting for an answer..

am getting a little bit frustrated to with tronsmart.
Android 4.1.2 was getting better every single time if there was a update
but it was way off from perfekt.

now we're back to square one whit the 4.2 update.
mabe tronsmart thinks her customers are beta testers.
and flashing back to the old rom i may have bricked my device

luckily for me i ordered a minix neo x5.
i will keep the device, until i know how to unbrick the tronsmart

I'm bricked my device too. Be aware form newest firmware upgrade.
After upgrade procedure prometheus won't boot up anymore.
Pressing reset button during power on do not work, the blue light is always on.

What went wrong? I don't know.
The first flash started normally. After 1hour of waiting for end of flashing nothing happens,
so I rebooted it manually. After this my prometheus died.

After pressing power on only red and blue light are flashing on.
TV screen is black with "no signal" info.
Upgrade procedure with pressing reset button do not work.
Downgrade procedure do not work.

Hello!
I bought a Tronsmart Prometheus device, which I upgraded from 4.2.1. Then I noticed that there is fresher edition. Again he used the update but nothing happened even after 15 minutes. Turned off and back, but since then no picture and no blue LED flashes three times when I press the reset. What do I do now? thank you
