    I've updated to the latest firmware but my Android Security Patch Level is still at August 1, 2016. This is way out of date. How do I get this updated? I've tried System Update but get a Network Connection Error.

    Security patches are delivered with new FW.
    Wait for FW008

    Not yet unfortunatelly, except it will be a Nougat (V7) version.
    Security patch will be upgraded.

    Thank you for your immediate reply:).

    So currently we are on Marshmallow? and now we move to Nougat v7. Forgive the question....but i am not a tecchie. i wonder if that will resolve the weather app being abke to identify my ip. Does not show again. I have addressed this with minix hk. After i rebooted my router and fibre optic box....all was well. Now stopped again. but it works on any country I choose using a vpn..

    Thank you

    As far a I am aware FW008 will be an Android 6 update. The Nougat firmware is a seperate entity!

    Well, we'll see. Ken told FW007a will be the last MM version...
    Anyway, FW008 will arrive, and Nougat will arrive too :D

    Thanks for that. But as I said ..i am not a techie. Do not understand the difference between an android 6 update and the Nogat version 7. Surely the operating software of android 6 to nougat 7 is an upgrade

    Moving from FW007A to FW008 I would say is a firmware update.
    Nougat will be a firmware/Android Upgrade. I expect starting with FW001. But I could be wrong!
    MINIX may decide to use consecutive numbers.
