Probably a silly question.. but I have root ssh access to an android TV stick running openelec (on an sd card).

Long story short i am trying to figure out where the refresh rate/resolution settings could be stored, because an incorrect (higher) value that I had set seems to be preventing me to boot into the normal ROM.

I found this file, but something tells me its not the one to edit..

OpenELEC:/sys/class/video # cat frame_rate
VFrame rate is 0.00fps, and the panel refresh rate is 60, duration is: 35452,vsync_isr/s=59.99,vsync_pts_inc=1500

Any help Please ?

    Thanks, but don't have android command like dumpsys in openelec. I am trying to find possible files that are responsible for refresh rate settings...I'll edit them manually – gyaani_guy Jan 9 '16 at 10:20
  • from the android interface! After that it won't boot into it.. so I can't change it from there... – gyaani_guy Jan 9 '16 at 10:26
  • Sorry, this is again a shot in the dark but when we change the resolution in the device using adb shell wm size, a key named display_size_forced is created in the table global of settings storage database. That key stores the new resolution. Deleting that key followed by a reboot restores the resolution to stock one. Does your Android TV have wm or settings or content command? – Firelord Jan 9 '16 at 10:39
