Likebook Mars Android 8.1 upgrade in 2021?

So I have 3 (!) different "instructions" documents in bad english, as well as a few different 8.1 firmware packages.

But in all of them the Mega.nz link to the "Androidtool.exe" is not working anymore. Does anybody know where this is? Or do I have to use another different tool for the flashing job?

Hi, try this link I got mid October 21: https://mega.nz/#!OZJBRQ5b!zTTN1rqgC...YVbDjxAoUbwMN4



But shouldn't actually be enough to rename the firmware file in "update.zip" and save it in root on the device?

A search in google found this site:
https://wiki.radxa.com/Android/android_tool

There is a link to Android tool in the Requirements section. NOTE: I make no guarantee that it will work, isn't a virus, etc. but it seems legit. I do remember that it had to be installed in the root directory of the C: drive in order to work correctly (and the original instructions did not make this clear).

Good luck.

Oops, didn't notice that Galliano was replying to a post that was a couple of months old - you probably don't care now :-)

Sadly no. The update from Android 6 to Android 8.1 had to be done using using the Android Tool and following some not very well written instructions that confused many and possibly bricked a few devices as well.

In case anyone still needs/wants to upgrade its MARS to Android 8.1, I found here a newer version of the AndroidTooi:

No guarantee that it works, I did not try it.
