    Hi Glelan,

    If you want to root it, it's just need Moborobo installed and opened (to detect minix), and Kingo Root to root it, just pressing one button.

    Best regards

    There will be the same root/unroot updates for x7mini,x7,x5,... The reason that these firmwares are not pre rooted is for security reasons and because the majority of people don't need it and don't want it as many tv app don't works on rooted devices (drm checks)

    Have you tried to boot into recovery and factory reset? Or reflash the firmware?

    IM also still awayting for the new rom. Want to test a few things.

    In the mean time i bought a intel2820 nuc to keep up the hobby.
    I must say, that system is working very very smooth, booting up in w8 in aprox 8 sec. Made a dual boot with android 4.4, and testing.

    Think i got Some problems with the system Itself, Flashed a few other images including officials, and everything works wel the first time after flashing. But as soon as i reset the system, power down or pull the powerplug, it keeps hanging on the startupscreen, even the trick pust resetbutton, power up pull the plug ect. Doesnt work then. Flashing is no problem and i can setup anything and it works flawles, but dont power down or whatever simulair then it wont boot anymore.
    Is there a backupbattery inside?

    Have you a static IP set? Try booting with the ethernet cable unplugged.

    Thx for the reply, but i tried every solution you give, with and without cable, static or free ip, results are always the same. As long as i dont power down, the minix is working perfect. So i think EOL for this system, only good to test images, but i cant rely on working 100% for now.
    Think its still under warenty, never opende it, seal is oke and dated 2013/10, but i bought it from a friend, and he doesnt have the facture anymore. So it Will be a lot of fuzz to get the warenty claim.
