Once again, my man servant has trawled the internet in search of bargains and he suggests this is an exceptional price while still having a terrible specification. I have a suspicion that he's now trying to make me look a fool on HUKD by submitting sub standard deals but let's see how this one pans out. Remember, it's £14.99 for a brand new android box, ideal for giving to people you have a particular dislike of.

Thanks for taking the time for making a comment, much appreciated.

how much of that 4gb storage is available after android's usage? it must be good for something, a small torrent server perhaps?

I wondered the same thing, it doesn't seem to have expandable storage unless you can plug in a regular USB memory stick in? - it's cheap and old spec by today's standards but it must be able to do something useful... maybe?

Edit: it seems to have an SD card slot in the front.

There would be uses for it. You could probably plug in a USB tv tuner and run TVHeadend

Make a decent Plex client too...

I'm really trying to find something good to say about this device but having some difficulty. The storage is small and presumably some is already utilised by the operating system.

But then the link indicates the page has been removed so that's that.

Gone or moved elsewhere, but what anyway is the point to listing android boxes which are basically useless for anything (much) the point is surely trying to find those which actually work well and reliably and can be used for Kodi (for instance)?

There's enough crap posted on here unwittingly - why add deliberately add more?

It was £14.99 from a established UK seller and might have been of use, I'd rather post these deals that then constant crud from Aliexpress, Bangood and such like, non of which contributes to the UK economy.

Anyhoo I fully expected it to go down like a cup of cold sick so it's no surprise, my apologies if it wasted a second of your time having to add your comment.

Yes he's been pretty poor of late, I think he's actually trying to sabotage my fine standing at HUKD, my team of comedy writers are also tempermental at times. Honestly it's hard work keeping a team of supposed experts working together.

ZOOSTORM OWNERS
HI People,
I have purchased Zoostrom box.arrived few days ago.
Out of the 4Gb storage.about 1.5 Gb the OS.450meg is the space to install apps. 2Gb is storage.some apps can be moved to this space.
Got some anyyoying 3 apps ECloud share/DLNA/Share.
This keeps prompting to enter a registration code every time the device is booted.Googling the issue and got no fix.Even Zoostorm support dont have a clue.
BTW this box gets shipped out with the orignal ROM, to fix the issue of Ecloud registration, one blog/zoostorm support suggested to update the firmware. which i did . It became a bit more stable. minor bug fixed. but the Ecloud registration still didnt go away.

Firmware
http://downloads.zoostorm.com/drivers/android/PlayBox/Zoostorm_Play_Box.zip

The only fix that got rid of the annoying registration box was to install EShareServer v1.2.2.apk.
http://android-apk.org/apk/com.ecloud.eshare.server/v1.2.2/personalchusmanu/eshareserver/

I have managed to play 1080 content form my USB Hd.and showBox 720P and plays well using its built on android player is the BEST of all.
Tested MX player and ARM codec also works well.
VLC is no go.
I would suggest not to sign into google account/playstore other wise the updates will kill the space.(450meg)
The only stable version of KoDi is 14.2 helix you can install.but it can only play SD content(not good) still working on this.
I am thinking to OverClock the box/still searching if there is custom Rom upgrade to kitkat ( this will fix alot of Apk compitibility parsing issues)
I have not tested PLEX, as i think it will work well through NAS or share PC/server.
Not bad for £15 as i have got it sing but not dance as yet.LOL
let me know if anyone has done any testing to improve the performance.
Hope this helps.






Hi Guys,

I have got one box as well and figured out may has not been too bad after all.

I have installed ES File manager (you can move to SD) and removed all bloatware (Box is already rooted)
I agree with ABZY123 suggestion to not sign into google account/playstore
KODI 14.2 helix is running fine but live TV is not great even on SD. (sound is crackling)
I am now searching for any custom ROM and upgrade it to at least Android 4.4 (KitKat)

HI Piteudrica,
Well done you managed to install 14.2 Helix.
This box more to than capable ro play 1080. I have taken it off coz i unbale to get a 720 stream. MX player defaulted play.
MX player works well with Live stream APK.
PM me and work with me. Installed CM 10 JB 4.1 and AKOP JB V4.2.2 ( Roms work still testing)
I guess its not fare to add tech bits here.

Price dropped to £9.99 inc. free shipping !

Seen these on flea-bay and, although a few years old, tempted to buy one to see if the likes of Modbro / Showbox can be installed.
Low memory but you can stick in a cheap memory card. What about the remote that comes with it, it appears it is Air-play but can it be used on another Android box?
