How to update Beelink TV Box?

First, you need to find out wich GT King Box you have due to the fact there are 2 types – GT-King 922X and GT-King B922.

Which Beelink GT Box I have?

You can discover what is your version by the serial number on the back of the Box.

Like you could view in my case the serial begins with 95X2 what is wrong 🙂 I have a beta test item. But your Box really should be OK and really should begins with 922X or B922.

GT-King 922X is LPDDR4 variant.

If your serial is Additionally wrong you could open the GT King TV Box and Look the RAM CPU next to the Processor:

In my case is Spectek PS082-062BT which if you google it you will find it is LP DDR4 variant.
So you need to download this file:

GT-King B922 is not LP (low-power) DDR.

So you need this file:

Whenever downloaded and unrar you require to copy the zip file galilei-ota-eng.ubuntu.zip to some SD card formated in FAT32. I used few old Samsung 2GB:

SD card

Wait until the file is being copied and whenever that put it into the GT King TV Box slot:

SD slot GT King

Now go to the menu and run the Update App:

Select the file on the SD card:

Follow the wizard and click update.

Now take your seat and don’t touch anything until you look at home launcher again.

It will take up to 5min and could possibly reboot a couple of times.

When you see the home, the upgrade is complete.

Look your Beelink GT King version in a options:

Update log:

1. Turn off CEC voice by default
2. Fix the problem that Netflix plays no sound
3. Add chrome review option
4. Fix the problem that the screen is black or the screen is flashing when the screen is rotated.
5. Fix the problem that camera can’t use
6. Fix the problem that the wallpaper settings are invalid.
7. Version changed to GT-King_903P0

I run Antutu to Look is there any functionality improved update but I’ve got the exact achievement:

During the test, the max temperature went up to 59 degree Celsius but I should say that I’m using my own Beelink GT King thermal mod what I described in an announced article. So if you don’t use it you can get a temperature up to 70 degree Celsius.

If you don’t have this beasty TV Box you could get one from Amazon:
