    Letv lately sold thousand of Letv x800 , US version,but there is 0 support from them,you are not serious! Never buy again your products!

        There isn’t an official US version yet according to LeMall.com. What kind of support are you looking for? Perhaps the community can help?

          It looks like LeTV or parallel importer (I actually don’t care, as it’s a LeTV device!) started selling a device intended for US (it has FCC certification) all over the world, Europe included. Now the ROM it came with has no OTA support, has bugs (like YouTube app not working and un-upgradeable) and even if I can’t confirm that many users say it has malware baked in it, opening webpages and installing apps on its own! Moreover we don’t know if that has a working DAC or which LTE bands it supports.

          Cherry on top it looks like it has a different revision (bootloader?), flashing a Chinese ROM onto an US model leads to hard brick and that’s why US devices have no Marshmallow/CM13 yet: luckily an unbrick package unofficially surfaced after one bricked month… Now they say they will fix the issue but we don’t know exactly how and when.

            The official ROM is EUI. If your reseller flash a custom ROM over the device, I doubt you can get any form of official support. LeEco products are network-based. The most common ones are the multi-network devices. I am not based in China but upgraded both my Le 1 X600 and Le 1S X500 to EUI 5.8 / Android 6.0.

    • Francis Sim

      There is no official US version for any of the Letv/LeEco products. What you have gotten is basically a parallel import. LeEco is only preparing to enter the US market within the next 3 months.

    version 15s messed up my X600. i cant boot the device without it being plugged with the usb cable. I did a factory reset and have reinstalled the official version many times and the issue remains.

    • Francis Sim
      July 10, 2016

      Mine worked on the 2nd attempt as my first download did not clear CRC check so I downloaded it again. Other than that, it was quite smooth sailing for me. Did you try to flash 13S again?

      • Luis Amaral
        July 11, 2016

        I tried to reinstall 13s but the stock recovery failed to install. I have to install twrp and try to see if it takes.

        • Luis Amaral
          July 11, 2016

          The battery is cooked. It doesnt last 6 hours from full to empty without using it. Im going to see if I can get a battery.

    Hi guys, I own a Leeco Le2 where I can’t find the “system update” anywhere in settings and even worse it freezes at exactly 21 % battery and says system shot down… Help anyone? Best regards pe

      Is your ROM a custom one or official one from LeEco?

      • Pek
        July 12, 2016

        Hi, it’s not custom I think, I got it directly from tinydeal and I didn’t do anything with it ..

        • Francis Sim
          July 12, 2016

          There should be a System Update option in Settings. Otherwise, I suspect that your device has been flashed with a custom ROM by your reseller.
