Regarding Chinese vs International version of M6

There will be two different versions of M6, one dedicated for Chinese market only(currently selling) and other, marked "International version", for rest of the World. Identical in hardware, but with different firmware.

International version will have sticker on back of the box, under serial number. Please be very careful when purchasing from any Chinese sellers and be sure to confirm it's international version.

At current time, we expect that firmware will be incompatible between versions, that you will be unable to install international version firmware on unit for Chinese market.

FAQ

Q: How to force reset M6?

Hold power button for 12s to force shutdown, hold again for 12s to turn on again.


Q: How to access Android Recovery Mode?

Access only when experiencing software problems with Android system.

1) Turn off M6.

2) Hold down power button(volume wheel) and "previous" (top) button at the same time. Let go when Shanling logo appears.

3) When dying robot and "No command" screen appears,
hold down volume wheel and and while holding it, turn wheel one click up (clockwise).

5) You entered Android recovery mode. Use volume wheel to go up and down through menu and click wheel to confirm.

@Shanling Really want to know how much this is going to cost, if it is more than 200 usd then I will probably buy the M0.

Great that it supports 4.4mm.

I hope this contends with the HiBy R6 Pro so we can get some good competition.

Good for you.
4.4, Android based, dedicated app.... If anything these are the indications that this will be a new TOTL from Shanling, so you can go pick your M0 now and save some time for yourself.
