Part 05 will tell you about firmware upgrade and product initialization.

Most of the products of the Android TV box provide firmware updates.
Before describing the firmware upgrade, let's briefly describe the firmware. 
It is a program of the company that is built and built specifically for the device maker to drive digital products.
Take U5 as an example, the firmware is made only for U5, so it can not be used in other Android TV boxes.
And it can be separated by product separately from company.
Each firmware has the same basic structure, but with slightly modified firmware, you have to use the firmware for each right one.

In the case of products that perform various functions, such as the Android TV box, depending on the digital product, it can not be completely manufactured from the beginning.
The manufacturer makes it seem to be perfect, but various errors may occur depending on the usage environment and the pattern of the user, and the user may suggest the functions which the user wants to be added when the user uses them.
In this case, the manufacturer will modify the firmware and provide it to the consumer.
Updating the firmware will fix the problem areas and improve the performance of the device or add various additional functions.
For this purpose, the manufacturer will only provide support for 1 ~ 2 years from the date of product release, and products made in China or abroad may not support firmware update.
Firmware updates are only available for one to two years because we are launching new products with new features in accordance with fast developing technology.
The U5 has also been updated with more than a year of steady firmware updates and many more features have been added.

Please enter in the order 'ATV Setup - About'.

At the time of writing the manual, it is assumed that the standard firmware is firmware dated 2018.08.22.

At the top of the system, please press 'Update'.

There are two ways to upgrade the firmware: "Local Upgrade / Online Upgrade".
'Local Upgrade' : This is a method to update the firmware file on the USB memory stick.
'Online Upgrade' : This is a way to automatically download and update files for upgrading the firmware through the Internet.

We'll let you know how to "upgrade online."

Please click 'Upgrade Online'

The online upgrade method is a comparison process because if you check the version of the currently installed firmware and the version of the file on the download server, they will be downloaded and installed.

There are two types of firmware upgrade: Full / Normal for Android TV.
"Full" version : To upgrade your product to full initialization by deleting all user data and installed apps.
'Normal' version  :  To keep user data and installed apps without touching it.

Normally, you can proceed with the 'Normal' update.

U5 is available for both Android and Debian Linux (OS).
