@remalab , oluremi alabi The process or appears to be soldered to the mother board(1st link) and with this device selling for $39.00(2nd link) or less probably would not be cost effective even if you could find replacement CPU, as it would take proffesional to install. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

Android boxes do not have modular CPUs, meaning from an average End User, No, the CPU can not be replaced, however, a Technician well versed in SMT work, can replace them. repairs of this standing are VERY expensive, and usually run more than most android boxes.

Yes, repairs are expensive. It is better to buy new tvbox. For example, MXQ Pro. I am using it now.
