Onn Google TV Android Box Review

The new onn. Google TV 4K Streaming Box hit the shelves in Walmart stores around the nation on Friday, April 21st.  Many cord cutters have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this new $19 Android TV Box.

Onn. is no stranger to Android TV Boxes and sticks.  In 2021 they released their first TV Box that carried the same price tag and also ran on the Android TV operating system.  At that time they also launched an Android TV Stick that was less than desirable and didn’t receive much praise.

Due to the popularity and low price of the original onn. Android TV Box, many have been anticipating the release of the new model.

I purchased the new onn. Google TV 4K Streaming Box in a Walmart store because at first they weren’t available for online purchase.  However, that has changed and you can now purchase through the Walmart Website.

onn. Google TV Android Box Review

The onn. Google TV Android Box is a small dongle that connects to the television with an HDMI cord which is included in the box.  It’s controlled by a Bluetooth remote control that includes shortcuts to popular apps such as YouTube, Netflix, Disney+, and Paramount+.

This onn. Google TV Android Box review will point out both the pros and cons of this 4K streaming box.  I won’t cover every feature but I will concentrate on the typical questions that cord cutters will have regarding this Android TV Box.

onn. Google TV Android Box Features

Here’s what the Walmart sales pages lists as notable features.

  • 4K UHD resolution TV streaming
  • Google TV OS – easily setup with your Google account
  • Dolby Audio
  • Fast WiFi
  • Compatible with Google Assistant
  • CPU: Quad-core Cortex-A35
  • GPU: Mali-G31 MP2
  • 2 GB RAM with 8 GB Storage
  • WiFi: 2.4/5GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac MIMO
  • Input: AC 100-240V, 50/60Hz, 250mA max; Output: DC 5V/1A
  • What’s in the Box? 1 4K Streaming Box, 1 Remote control (requires 2 AAA batteries, included), 1 HDMI cable 3.28 ft (1m), 1 Quick Start Guide

At first glance, I wouldn’t say that 2 GB or RAM and 8 GB of storage is a selling point but we will see how the unit performs before making that assessment.

Setup Process

The setup process was simple and onn. has done a great job making this as easy as possible.  You have two options of setting up this streaming box.  You can either use the Google Home app on your phone/tablet or do it manually on the TV instead.

I go through the entire setup process in my First Impressions Video that’s available to TROYPOINT Patrons and Founding Members.

Troy’s First Impressions Video

onn. Google TV Android Box Setup


Once the device has booted and I have logged in, I see an update screen which is great!  The onn. Android TV Box has only been out for one day and we’re already getting a system update.  This is a great sign as many manufacturers don’t support their systems with future updates.

System update for Onn Android TV Box

The onn. Bluetooth Remote allows for pairing with a television, soundbar, or AV receiver.  I connected it to my television by following the prompts and I can now easily control both my volume and power on the TV.  There were zero issues pairing my remote to my television.

Pair onn Anrdoid Box remote with TV

In the final stages of setup, I was asked which streaming services that I use.  The streaming box uses this information to display relevant media on the Google TV user interface.  The only one that I chose was Amazon Prime since this is the only subscription that I have.  YouTube is automatically checked and you can’t uncheck it.

Streaming Services

New Google TV Interface

As soon as the new onn. Google TV Android Box booted, I was presented with the Google TV user interface.  This is different than the prior model because that one was based solely on Android TV.  You can think of Google TV as the user interface that sits on top of the Android TV operating system.

This is one of the big features that onn. is touting for this new device.  Some people love it and some hate it.  For those who dislike all of the ads and push for various streaming services, we can hopefully install a 3rd party launcher.  More on that later in the review.

onn Google TV Android Box user interface

Apps Automatically Installed

I noticed right away that the remaining storage was very limited with only 3 GB available.  So, I took a look at what applications were installed and found the following.

onn Google TV 4K Streaming Box Apps

  • Apple TV
  • Disney+
  • ESPN
  • HBO Max
  • Hulu
  • Netflix
  • Paramount+
  • Prime Video
  • YouTube
  • YouTube Music

You may wonder why all of these applications are already installed.

You may also wonder how a company can sell a streaming box for only $19.

This is how!

Free StartMail Trial

We’ve seen this same model in the gaming industry where Microsoft and Sony sell their systems at a loss knowing they will recoup the difference and more through games and other additional purchases.  Same business model applies here.  More than likely onn. is taking a bath on the current price but they will make up for it when you purchasing these services.  Or, maybe you won’t.

More than likely Walmart and onn. are receiving affiliate kickbacks for those who register for these various streaming services already installed on the device.

I went though and uninstalled all of the apps that I wasn’t going to use and it freed up almost 1 GB!  Keep in mind that you can’t uninstall system apps such as YouTube, YouTube Music, or Netflix.

onn. Google TV Android Box Sideloading

The most popular question that we will get.  Does sideloading apps work on the onn. Google TV 4K Streaming Box?

Yes side-loading does work.

I fired up the TROYPOINT Toolbox and sideloaded Wolf Launcher, Launcher Manager, Unlinked, and a few others.  They all worked as they should.

Bluetooth Remote Control

Many will tell you that the remote control is just as important as the streaming box itself.

The Bluetooth Remote that comes with the onn. Android Box is the typical Google TV remote found with many other streaming devices.

The remote is very responsive and includes app shortcut buttons for YouTube, Netflix, Disney+, and Paramount+.

Another nice feature we haven’t seen on other boxes is the ability to pair the remote control by pushing a button on the back of the onn. Android TV box.  This is extremely handy if for some reason your remote becomes unpaired and you have no way of getting back into the user interface.  Many people in this situation use the Google TV app on their phone or tablet and control their television with that.  This solution should alleviate headaches found when pairing a remote.

Google Assistant

Google Voice Assistant comes enabled on the new onn. Google TV 4K Streaming Box and it works great.

Google Assistant

I tested the built-in microphone for many scenarios and didn’t have any problems whatsoever.

The nice thing about Google Assistant is that it should work on all of your applications, even the ones that you sideload.  This is a downfall of the Amazon Firestick as you can’t use their voice assistant on 3rd party applications.

Chromecast Built-In

Chromceast is built into the onn. Google TV Android Box which allows you to cast media from an outside device to the streaming box.  Many people use this feature to cast home videos or photos stored on their phones.

Chromecast works on the onn. Google TV 4K Streaming Box

Netflix Certified

Some of the off-brand Android TV Boxes aren’t Netflix Certified however the onn. Google TV Android Box is.  As mentioned previously there is also a Netflix app shortcut on the remote control.  It also supports all of the other popular streaming services such as Disney+, hulu, YouTube TV, Paramount+, etc.

Netflix support

3rd Party Launchers

Many cord cutters are turned off by the constant push to purchase streaming services through the Google TV launcher.  Lots of ads and a slower user interface!

3rd party launchers allow you to replace the Google TV launcher for something less intrusive and quicker.

After testing the onn. Google TV Android TV Box with Wolf Launcher and Launcher Manager, I’m happy to report that 3rd party launchers do work on the device.

Expanding Internal Storage

The onn. Google TV Android Box comes with only 8 GB of internal storage.  Once the system apps and operating system are accounted for, there’s only approximately 4 GB left.

The onn. Google TV Android Box does support expanding internal storage with an OTG Cable and USB Drive.

Expand Internal Storage on onn Google TV Android Box

Here’s a video where I show how to do this.

This is hit and miss and I don’t suggest  doing this unless you need the space for additional apps.


As you will see in the video, you must keep USB Debugging off.  If you require USB Debugging, you can turn it on, make whatever changes or mods need to be made and then turn it back off.

Ethernet Adapter on onn. Google TV Android Box

Since we are on the subject of using an OTG cable, it’s important to point out that it can be used for other external gadgets as well!

Although the new onn. Google TV Android Box doesn’t come with an Ethernet port, we can add one by way of an OTG Cable.

Here’s a video that shows how to do this.

onn. Google TV Android Box Download/Upload Speeds

I used the Analiti Speed test app for the following tests.

I have one GB Fiber download speed plan through my Internet Service Provider.

During the WiFi tests, I’m connected to the 5GHz band on my Asus ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Router. This router resides in the same room as my onn. Google TV Android Box (approximately 20 feet away from the wireless router).

I’m using Surfshark VPN as my VPN on Chicago Server.

onn Android Box upload/download speeds

VPN Off: Download = 397 Mbps & Upload = 95 Mbps

VPN On: Download = 157 Mbps & Upload = 87 Mbps

Running a VPN always slows down both download/upload speeds due to encryption and tunneling traffic through an outside server.

I would rate the download/upload speeds as great!

Final Thoughts on the Walmart onn. Google TV Android Box

The new onn. Google TV Android Box is better than their past model and it’s priced the same.

There is not doubt that this will be a huge hit and will replace many Amazon Firesticks due to its low price and the ability to customize it to your liking.

Here’s my TROYPOINT ranking system for reviews.

Terrible – Bad – OK – Good – Great

My ranking looks at the features offered, how well those features work, and price.

I rank the new onn. Google TV 4K Streaming Box as Great.

  1. Troy this is Stan, I watch your videos all the time. I have 2- 4k onn box plus I have TV mate. The problem is whe I turn the power on, one box it used to go straight to TV mate live with no problems now with the new update I have to go to the app itself in order to Tru. TV mate on. How do I bypass that extra step and program it so it can go back to straight TV mate app. Could you help out with the settings thank you very much

  2. Recently purchase the onn android box and followed the troypoint instructions for supercharging this device. everything worked well up until I set up and launched the wolf launcher…. at that point the device bricked up and was unusable until I did a full factory reset. Wolf launcher is no longer working on the android 12 version.


      I had the same thing happen to me. I did a factory reset, removed the apps I wasn’t going to use and installed only the ones I use. I did not install Wolf Launcher. It’s fine now. I do wish I could remove the shortcuts to apps I don’t use or plan to use. I usually use Firestick. Onn is my first Android box.

  3. The 2021 version has an Android update to Android TV OS 12. I kid you not. I thought they would stop at 10 but color me surprised that they updated it to 12

  4. Troy, Just switched from Firestick 3rd Gen to Watch Onn, installed ATV Launcher and using an OTG cable have Ethernet speed and a USB external drive for extra storage… ONN is much better than Firestick! My only issue is when I press the power button, the remote turns on the ONN device, my Samsung TV but not my Visio Sound bar? I have to press the volume button up to turn on the sound bar, which is fine. But when I press the power button to turn everything off, the TV powers off but the sound bar stays on unlike with the Firestick, it would also power off. Any suggestions to get the sound bar to power off as the settings only offers you one device? Thank you.

  5. You said, you can’t use the Amazon voice assistant on 3rd party applications. I use it all the time.
    When using a third party app and searching for a title with onscreen keyboard open, just press the Alexa button and say the title you’re looking for.

  6. Is there a hardware device that will plug into the HDMI port of the onn Google TV box and upscale HD video using AI to 4K or 8K video?

    This would be similar to the AI upscaling feature of the Nvidia Shield.

  7. I give the ONN. streaming box an 8 out of 10. My biggest complaint is that it’s not compatible with the xfinity stream app. I’ve tried sideloading it also without success. Has anyone else tried to load this with success?

  8. I have the same problem. I am watching a movie and all of a sudden the sreen saver kicks in after 20 minutes. I notice there is a short cut to screen saver but no way to shut it off or adjust it. Any ideas on how to fix this problem would be appreciated.

      1. I bought 3 onn and the remote has given out on all 3 units. The company informed me that they were having troubles with the onn remote. So I was not offended anything. Not even a return. So beware.

  9. Bought 3 of these…two for my grand daughters and one to replace my old Firestick. Simple to setup with all the apks I wanted, external storage, and using Wolf Launcher, it’s great …but, the only problem I have and can’t seem to fix is that it turns off about every 6 or 8 hours unless I catch the warning that the android device is going to turn off. I’ve tried several different settings under Power & Energy…Never…24 hours…12…hours, etc., and it still shuts off and is driving me crazy.

  10. Hi Troy. Any suggestions how to get a working BBC iPlayer on this? Can’t get the usual app to work without a mouse.

  11. Hi Troy,
    Followed your setup and had Wolf as my homescreen. Issue was it was not working well with my older Samsung TV and the remote was not doing what I wanted. I couldnt figure out how to go back to the OEM homescreen. Out of frustration I force stopped Wolf and deleted it. Now I have the black screen and no home screen…and I can’t reset it because the screen is just black. The quick buttons take me to Netflix etc, but nothing else works. Any idea how to reset or get out of this without a displayed screen?

    1. Hi Buck, click the voice assistant button on your remote and say, “Settings” then go to Apps and launch Launcher Manager from that location and change back to default launcher.

  12. I tried to set up the box using your instructions , but things are always different on your site . Some look the same , but don’t work as I try to follow the instructions. I’m not a computer expert or stupid , I can read . Things are different, don’t work for me .

  13. I was wondering if a large external hard drive lorded with apk apps will run on onn box.
    I also was wondering if that drive could add storage space

    1. i was able to sideload all extra apps and got the otg and usb setup, i am backing up my 2 TB drive and will see if it will give extra storage, wish me luck!

  14. When I open the startup show it opens in live tv. Only option is to log out .
    How do I get back to the home screen on startup show. I use yhe onn from walmart to stream.

  15. Hello Troy.
    Thanks for going in great detail about the Onn setup, I got a question, ,does the Onn have a sleep mode when you exit like firestick ?? As always your help/suggestion is appreciated

  16. I was able to side load the xfinity stream app for this new ONN box. Everything was working until I had to side load a newer version of the Xfinity stream app. I now get an error message stating “screen mirroring is not currently supported turn off screen mirroring to watch on this device”. Any suggestions on how to do this?

  17. Also keep in mind, Amazon Prime users have new games to demo each month through Luna on FireTV devices, which aren’t available as such on the onn. device. I’ve got a Fire TV Stick 3rd gen with Alexa voice remote, a Fire TV Stick 4k with Voice remote using an OTG connector and SanDisk Ultra USB 3.0 Flash Drive, a Fire TV Stick 4K Max I have yet to inbox with OTG & Flash Drive to be added, and two of the new onn. Boxes from Walmart still wrapped. I’ll be getting to those for evaluation to recommend to friends (or not)… QA Test Engineer background, and perform mass pm move package through ADB on Mac or Window. Enjoy your streaming experiences!

  18. I can’t get the OTT Platinum app to function on the ONN device. It does install, but will not open when selected. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

  19. ONN box. I thought this box would definitely have to go back because it kept going to the black screen and I just couldn’t get out of it I tried different TVs to no avail. I wound up holding the back button to pair my remote and then I kept holding the button for 5 seconds.This took me to settings where I reset the box. Not installing any launchers.

  20. Hey does anyone have any idea on how to configure the display to fit the screen on this new Onn box? Can’t seem to find the setting. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

  21. My first day with the onn to replace a Firestick which I still have enabled to see how both compare. So far everything is great as spelled out in the review. My preferred app is YouTubeTV and I don’t like that it is long down the list of available apps on the screen so I have to move through many apps with the remote to get to my usual startup app. I’ve tried the Google Asst to launch it by voice but the Asst seems to want to always launch YouTube instead of YouTubeTV. Maybe I can figure out how to say it in perfect Google voice. Ha!
    I’m unfamiliar with Wolf Launcher. Would that enable me to launch YouTubeTV when I turned on the onn 4k?
    My remote does seem a little temperamental with a little lag when moving between apps and so forth. Does not happen all the time but is a little bother.

  22. Hello Troy,
    I bought the Onn android tv box, set it up as per your instructions, all went well the first few times .
    I also installed Kodi 20.1 from your site, , the past 3 times I cannot open kodi, , the first time I cleared all the data and reinstalled kodi, for whatever reason kodi will not open ,all other installed apps work fine. I switched back to the firestick 4k and kodi works like a charm > Am I missing something? Does anyone else have that issue with kodi on the Onn? Your help/suggestions are always appreciated

  23. Hi Troy, Is there a script available of the Supercharge video for the ONN box? I do better when the instructions are on hard copy. Thank you.

  24. Got everything setup, but can’t get subtitles to work on Cinema or BeeTV.
    It appears it is having issues with the srt downloading to the device with both apps.

  25. I’ve downloaded wolf launcher and launcher on my new onn device however I can’t access the launcher options at the top in launcher Manager. Any advice on how to do that, I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled and it still won’t let me click that option.

  26. Unfortunately, here in Germany the onn.Google tv box costs €40, so this price is very favorable for you.

  27. To be succinct, I have 2 main issues with the onn device.
    1: no pause, rewind, or fast forward.
    2: it will not turn on a sound system at the same time it turns on the TV.
    That makes the firestick a more functional streaming device.
    Firestick vs onn: firestick wins!

    1. Hi Theo,

      1. Click select button on remote and then use the playback bar on the screen to navigate movie/TV show.
      2. Not sure I would rank a device simply off whether it turns a sound system on or not. When I look at features of any Android TV device, they blow the Fire OS out of the water due to the fact that Amazon is blocking various customizations and Google is not.

      1. Hey Troy. Turning a sound system on goes to functionality, which is always ranked.
        Can you be specific about the features of Android devices? I tried one and found the navigation to be confusing.

        1. The big one right now is being able to use 3rd party launchers like Wolf, Projectivity, etc. You are referring to problems with navigation and a 3rd party launcher solves that problem. Amazon has clamped down on 3rd party launchers. Yeah, you can still use them with different workarounds but they are all less than ideal.

  28. I tried to follow your video very closely. All very clear and helpful. When I tried to use the Wolf Launcher, my screen showed black with white printing of app names scattered about. The screen was frozen and I couldn’t get out of the app. I unplugged and replugged- I get the ONN screen and GOOGLE screen, but then nothing. No button on the remote works- I can’t get to anywhere to do any kind of reset- What is the solution?
    I would do a factory reset if I have to.

    1. I have this exact same issue. Just locked up in Wolf Launcher and no way out. Couldn’t even do a factory reset if I wanted to since nothing works. Just totally locked up.

      1. Most of you are installing the wrong Launcher Manager. You need Launcher Manager for Android TV not Fire TV. Reboot device and hold down on Voice Assistant button and say Settings. Then you can change what you need to in there through Apps, etc.

  29. Hi Troy! OTG cable looks great but curious what about ANKER usb hub 7.1 any usb ports it works Onn 4K streaming? Google Chromecast and Firestick it works.

  30. Troy .. you have got to be one of the greatest at what you do ( for us ) I bought one of these way back when you first told us about them’s great .. of course now I see you explain how to add mor storage and I truly thank you .. can’t wait to try it out ..mine after the update has the Downloader on it which it din’t when I bought it originally .. great product and fantastic job with the discription and whatnot ..thanks again as always !

  31. This works great! I set it up with the same apps as my Firestick and everything works better and faster. The only issue that I have is Defsquid doesn’t work on “device cleaner”… I will definitely put the Stick in the drawer as an emergency backup only..

  32. I have bricked two of the new onn boxes after carefully following the tutorial. Using Wolf Launcher. Final reboot yielded blank home screen. No way to recover or do a factory reset.

    1. Unplug your device. Hold in on remote pairing button in back of box. While holding that down, plug power into box. Keep holding it down until screen loads, once that happens release the button. Now, push the button a few times until Factory Reset is highlighted. Once highlighted long press that option and let go. Your device will factory reset. Not sure why this isn’t working for you, no problems on the 2 that I’ve done. I would suggest watching the video again and don’t skip any steps. You are missing something when going through this if this is happening or you have a bad box.

      1. Got the Android Recovery screen to load, but the remote is now apparently unpaired with the box and won’t respond to any nav buttons or the select button.

        1. Hi Wade, you don’t use the remote. Once the recovery screen loads, let go of button on box. Then each individual press on that button will move the cursor. Once you are on Factory Reset, hold down on the button for a few seconds and then release.

          1. Thanks for all your help with this – got every customized and running just as I like it. This device is unbelievably fast and priced, it must be a loss leader for Walmart.

  33. I bought one today but can’t install HBO Max or DirectTV — I get an error message saying the apps are incompatible with my device!

  34. Good review. I just spent the day with it and decided it’s not for me. I need a web browser and looks like you can’t put Silk or Chrome on this thing. And it runs ok but I will stick with Firestick.

    1. The Firecube has got to be the best from my opinion ..I actually tried them all Roku cube and stick Firestick and Onn all good but the FireCube can’t be beat .. no remote needed .. just tell it what you want .. that easy and there is a place on Ebay t hat sells them for close to half price of what the stores do ! Best of Luck ..God Bless have a great day !

    1. ONN is the clear winner here as Amazon’s unremoveable bloatware now just strangles available server space, IMO. Troy goes over how easy it is to remove ONN’s pre-loaded apps you don’t want to use. Goodby FS4K Max!

  35. Do I have to use the ADB SHELL with the 4k onn box to increase storage or not. One video its used and another jts not?

    1. Hi Albert, no you don’t. If you are watching the Supercharge Video, I enable it there because it’s needed for Launcher Manager.

  36. That Wolf loader screwed me…now none of the apps are clickable, and I cant even access Launcher Manager either. It loaded to an all black screen with a few app titles I had to click the Disney button and come back before the images for the apps showed and now I cant unselect Wolfloader and not a single one of the apps will work> How can I reset this entire device and start all over again ?

    1. You don’t have to reset the device if you don’t want to. Your Google assistant should still work. Press the button on the remote fore Google Assistant and say ” open settings” Google Assistant will open up settings for you. Once in settings force stop wolf and launcher manager. I cleared cache in both went back to launcher manager set it for Wolf launcher and it opened up just fine after that.

      1. NO buttons worked whatsoever…However, I did manage to do a soft reset by simply unplugging and leaving unplugged for a full 5 minutes and then I was able to deselect from settings and disable wolf launcher

  37. I’ve been plying around with the new Onn for a few days now. I’m impressed overall. I am not sure though it has HDR or AtmosVision as the review mentions. Maybe I’m missing something?

  38. I followed all the directions up to wolf launcher, then when I activated wolf launcher, none of the apps showed, just a black screen with the WL logo on the corner and no apps. How do i get the apps back?

  39. Kodi Superman would not load for me either on the ONN box. I was able to load Diggz. Otherwise no problems with the box.

  40. Charlie Sheets

    I’ve been using firesticks for years. This newer, cheaper Onn. Is a terrific replacement.

    It’s less of a mess to register and easier to set up.

    Great buy at $19.88

    Easy setup.

    Snappy response.

    Great remote with terrific voice response.

    If you’re using zip files make sure you go to permissions for the App concerned and allow management of all files. Failure to do this will hide zip files.

    It’s a no brainer at $19.88.

    Overall rating: Great

  41. the people who designed this for Walmart made it so the USB port was only for power that’s why so many people are having issues with the USB port. There’s a very simple fix for it. This is what I did and what everybody else also needs to do, my Onn box after doing this will take any USB splitter and allow for USB remotes keyboards etc. It will read any USB drive I plug into it also. It currently recognizes a generic sankesu 64 GB thumb drive.

    Turn off wifi. Get into developer options and scroll down to “select USB configuration” switch it from “charging” to “RNDS (USB Ethernet)” go back scroll down and hit restart. When it powered back on with my OTG dongle connected with my USB 3 splitter with Ethernet I now I had an Ethernet connection and my USB keyboard and thumb drives also worked. It is now perfect and blows Fire sticks away. There are a couple different USB settings you can play just remember what you changed so you can change it back if you don’t want to follow my instructions. After making the changes after I did another restart and powered it back up, it switched itself back to “charging” in developer options but my USB dongles are working just fine and with Ethernet. I tried several including a ugreen. I also do not have any of the USB storage issues that people are complaining about. It’s a really simple fix. Enjoy.

    1. Adding that OTG dongle almost doubles the cost of the ONN box. Just sayin…
      Would be nice to have USB and wired Ethernet out of the box. And bluetooth.

      1. That also would double the cost of the box but would be better, nice and clean looking. many have been doing this for years with the more expensive Amazon devices not really a big deal and have the set up.

  42. I love it! I haven’t watched either of my fire sticks since connecting my 2 Onns to my TVs. I found the need to install my Kodi app only for watching Live TV, Movies all Kodi offers. Along with my Surf Shark, Analiti and Unlinked. One of the things I noticed and really like is I get no buffering from Kodi now and networks open right up. I also like the additional programing I get from Onn. Other apps are there for me to install like Tubi, Pluto Crackle, etc. I think I better get 2 more before the price increases, because this is a pretty good deal for $19.88.

    $19 deal from Walmart is not there anymore (today).
    It would be wonderful if a push notification to members from this Troypoint when this sale is available.

      1. Stream TV Watcher

        Added to cart OK. When click cart to pay, it shows not available.
        Does anyone have this problem at all?

  44. The Mouse toggle click doesn’t work for me on the new Onn dongle.
    Looks like it is an issue with V1.0.6 mouse toggle and Android 12.
    Seems that V1.0.7 is being worked on to try to address this.
    Other Android 12 devices are also affected.

    1. I noticed that as well. It was one of the first things I installed because at the time I couldn’t figure out how to get a USB keyboard working. Then it became one of the first things I uninstalled when I noticed it didn’t work right.

    I have the older model with Android TV and have been really pleased with it. Way better than my older firesticks. I’ll probably get one of these with the GoogleTV as well at some point because of how happy I am with the older one.
    Am sorry to see the supercharge sight gone for the older model though.
    I still have an older one in the box waiting for me to set up for my bedroom tv that is still running firetv. Now I won’t have the old supercharge guide to follow when I finally set it up. :(

  46. I think the onn is Great and finally get rid of firestick one question how to use assistant to get alexa to turn on lights thank you for all your hard work and help

  47. Great review as usual Troypoint. I have been looking for an alternative to the Firestick because they have become pricey. I will be going to pick up my Google box soon to try it out. Thanks for such great advice ?!

  48. This is an awesome streaming box! Is there a way to do ethernet with it? I tried my USB ethernet adapter with no luck…

    1. This is what I did and what everybody else also needs to do, my Onn box after doing this will read any USB drive I plug into it also.

      Turn off wifi. Get into developer options and scroll down to “select USB configuration” switch it from “charging” to “RNDS (USB Ethernet)” go back scroll down and hit restart. When it powered back on with my OTG dongle connected with my USB 3 splitter with Ethernet I now I had an ethernet connection and my USB keyboard also worked.

I tried several including a ugreen. I also do not have any of the USB storage issues that people are complaining about. It’s a really simple fix. Enjoy.

  49. I got the new onn. And I am trying to install the Superman build on Kodi 20.1, but every time I get to the install from repository page, it says “could not connect to repository”. I’ve tried uninstalling Kodi and reinstalling it several times, going through the whole process, making sure not to make any mistakes, and I still keep getting the same thing. What am I doing wrong?

    1. I’m not sure what you are doing wrong but I had no problem loading two different Kodi builds and the Onn box runs them just fine. Superman was one of them. Just follow Troys video and do exactly as posted.

    2. I had the same problem, I guess it is a problem with the Superman Build. Let me know if you have any luck at finding the problem.

  50. How did you get launcher manager to work? It would not work for me. I had to use the button mapper app to launch wolf launcher.

    1. Everything that I show in the Supercharge Video above is what I did to get it working. You need to enable USB Debugging.

      1. I’ll try the version from your site. I saw your mouse toggle but mouse clicks not working. Had to install tvQuickActions pro app. And all is fine
