Tronsmart’s Prometheus set-top box (STB) unit features the dual-core Amlogic AM8726-M6 Cortex A9 processor with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of on-board flash.

The STB was originally sold with Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system; this new firmware update takes it up to the latest Jelly Bean release – 4.2.2.
