So I’ve put together a list of all the major Android TV box manufacturers complete with all of their models and a link to their latest firmware.
I’ve also included the date the firmware was released, if available.
which is why we also recommend unlocking your phone while you're at it.
The Android that powers your phone is called, in more technical terms, firmware.
In most cases, the firmware of a device cannot be modified or customized, as it is kept well out of reach of the ordinary consumers.
If your phone would be a Windows-powered computer, then firmware versions would be Windows XP, Windows 7, or Windows 10, with many iterations for each broad version.
This is more or less what happens with your Android phone - periodically, Google releases a new Android version that improves features and fixes security risks.
They may have nothing in common with the original, or even be made by the same company.
For example, you can have several different versions of the G-Box TV box – made popular by Matricom. If you bought a “G-Box TV box”, you may have a Matricom device and you may not. The box may have the same components, but there’s a good chance it won’t. Since they buy their devices in bulk from manufacturers overseas, a lot of people can sell the same box.However, things do get different when it comes to Android since the entire mobile operating system is compressed and stored in a writable form called NAND flash memory.
