Solution on Slow Performance of XTRONS Android Units

Why Android units slow down?

When you boot up your new XTRONS Android head unit for the first time, it can take up to 3 minutes for the whole Android OS to be compiled and flashed, and it will take about 30 seconds for the next boot. The performance speed depends on how heavy the apps are on the unit.
You have probably installed more and more apps as you continue to use your device. Some apps open at startup and run in the background, consuming CPU resources are taking up your device’s memory. If you have installed a lot of apps that run in the background, they can slow down your device.

How to get the best performance from XTRONS Android head units?

1. Delete and disable unnecessary apps:
Most XTRONS Android units come with 1G RAM. As unused apps are running in the background causing the unit to slow down, we do recommend installing apps to an external SD card, and keep this inserted in the unit. This is an easy and quick way to extend the RAM of the unit.

2. Perform a factory reset:
Keep in mind this will delete everything on your unit, so back up any important files first! There is also a way to do a factory reset using the recovery menu, but these steps differ from unit to unit. Enquire with customer service for assistance if you have any doubts.

3. Firmware update:
New Firmware will keep your Android unit running smoother. Firmware updates can be a complicated process and can void your warranty if updated without following instruction provided by XTRONS support. Before you take this step, make sure you have been authorized to do so and with correct firmware and instructions supplied.

4. Stuck in Boot Loop:
If your unit is stuck in a boot loop, you can usually fix this by doing a simple factory reset or firmware update.

I have a pf84mtva, it worked fine so far ...
The fault is that the screen is turned off sometimes while the radio is still ringing, the controls of the steering wheel if they do PIP does not respond, nor those of the unit.
Other times I turn on the vehicle and it does not turn on ... the recorded radio stations are also erased ..
I already checked the wiring, with the vehicle turned off, the yellow cable always keeps the 12 volts.
Is it a hardware or software problem?
Will the 5.1 Android be damaged?
I appreciate your help, since at any time I dismantle the equipment and end it with a hammer. :oops:
Thank you
regards
