Discussion in 'NEO X8-H PLUS 004 firmware via MINIX FOTA' started by danlat1415, Apr 4, 2015.
Thanks for the tip and i'll give it a go tomorrow..
FOTA has been pulled off for a few days until we found the root cause causing the "90% status stuck".
For those who want to use this firmware now,
please use the USB burning tool method.
We don't want to put you guys into any risks,
was just about to post to say I couldn't find any OTA updates.... looks like thats because you pulled it Ken!! LOL!
Is BBC IPlayer working or not with this update?
The problem was with 4.6 apk with 4,5 and 4.7 apk (iPlayer) it's ok (with oo3 and now with 004).
I am in ver 002. Until now i need to download first BBC programme and then to watch it.
Can you watch live the BBC programmes?
Its nothing to do with the iplayer its all to do with the BBC media player and the last one that worked was the 3.0.6 and every version after this one has not worked.
If the BBC did not force the updates then we all would not have a problem....
Now if the media player 3.0.6 worked fine and had no problem how can they blame android and how can we push minix to fix it.
I've even tried the re compile the 3.0.6 as the latest version and it still doen't work...
OK, Thank you for your answer.
I've forgotten to mention that we have added 2 keys to the HDMI-CEC control:
Yellow key - HOME
Blue key - Menu
That should make the CEC control better.
Frame rate automatic switch and CEC now function almost ok with my setup (after Minix hard reset).
HBO GO apk now works ok (but of course SD only).
Iplayer BBC works ok ( but of course SD only).
VidOn XBMC - it's nice add but no 3D BD iso yet for Amlogic SoC and with free version no passthrough (not even for DTS and Dolby).
Ethernet and Wifi speeds are definitely worst after 004 update.
I have Neo X8H-Plus
Build No: KOT49H.20141225
kernel ver: 3.10.33
I would like to upgrade to firm 004. The MD5 checksum value for firm 004 downloaded from minix forum is
857003f9d038e3e6edc419bbccd653cf and not 440DEDE4FEFAA2445E89F6153EA2C304.
Can i upgrade it or not?
Thank you in advance
not with the file you have downloaded if the checksums don't match, something went wrong with your download or you have downloaded the wrong file
OK thank you.
I made a mistake. Now fixed.
But we changed nothing about Wifi except enabling 2 more channels? same driver?
how could it affect the speed?
for ethernet, our iPerf results were in fact better.
Anyway, we shall look into that after the holidays.
Relieving to know HBO Go & BBC work again.
Again your right, sorry. I read your mesage and I tried to find the problem with my setup. Last solution because I find an update for my router FW, I reset it and apply the update and now .... ethernet speed for Minix are ok (~220Mbps). But with Wifi the speed it's still limited at 75Mbps and with 003 the limit was 85Mbps.
Ok it's not a big diference and maybe with 005 we could see 100Mbps with Wifi ( or maybe it's still my setup mistery only)
I've downloaded the above fw4 file Minix-Ken linked to three times,
the file sum keeps failing to match.
Is this download link not well?
EDIT; never mind, just downloaded the one from the forum server which checks ok.
Can somebody upload the firmware 004 "update.zip" (NOT the complete firmware) somewhere?
thanks in advance
hi. the 004 firmware update is a full update
"It's a full update package because the firmware is based on the latest SDK (March 2015)."
So we have to download the full rar (almost 100% certainly ):
The OTA upgrade is the same, 500MB (more or less)...
Still, the OTA file could be posted somewhere (this is the update.zip), but I suppose this will also have the 90% status check bug. We'll have to wait untill Minix squaches it and release the OTA update again.
Yes we have to wait for a minix response to that.....
But with the full firmware image we can install any version (firmware).
I always donwload the full image and i do backup to all the fw versions.
The OTA for me went well, no problems at all.
I am in portugal and i download the file from the Forum server (for a backup), no problems also.
