Convert this device to Android

bickybicky Posts: 7WeTek Community Member
I have a Wetek WP1 Open Elec Box running OpenElec 8.0.3. With the demise of Kodi , I would like to convert this Box to run on Android.This will provide me with more options.
Is this possible and if so where can I download the necessary Firmware, and instructions for installation.
Any guidance appreciated.

    I would like to let you know that even WP1 and WP OpenELEC Edition are both first model generations, they have different components and the boot is different.

    So i would like to let you know that even this being the main and normal process to install Android, it has a chance that may damage your device.
    If this happens you will require a Serial Port, or a Srial-To-USB adapter, in order to use the RS-232 Serial Cable to recover your device.

    That said, it's your decision if you desire to proceed with the installation,

    If yes, follow these instructions

    You need to download these files:
    https://mega.nz/#F!8ogVkSbR!ytnGLtmILb9-5J-Bq6GBhg

    Extract it until you get 4 files listed like this (Do not need to be in the same order)

    .zip file
    aml_autoscript
    factory_update_param
    recovery

    Copy them to a formmated (FAT32) SDcard

    After you have copied the files to your SDcard, follow these steps:

    Insert the SDcard with the files in your device.
    Power Off your device
    Disconnect your power supply.
    Underneath your Device, you have an update button (Small Hole)
    With the update nail provided in your package, press and hold that update button
    While pressing, connect your power supply
    Keep pressing the button for 10 more seconds.

    After the 10 seconds the installation will start automatically.

    You can follow this video to help you apply the steps i mentioned above,
