    4 things that make me want to call them bugs about latest firmware 013

    1) The date is shown in US format and no way to change it to say UK format or for eg 13 July 17...very confusing for us Brits and others probably too !
    2) Why do we need the weather shown on this icon..if i want to know about the weather and temperature from my minix I would install a weather app, plus it shows the wrong info for me anyway. Where does it get this weather information from if you have not signed in with a google account or allowed location
    3) The VPN icon does not light up if you run a VPN app, so is very misleading and misinforming ( is that a word ?)
    4) No All Tasks Killer function if you choose to use Launcher 3...where is this app hidden ?

    PS ..same comments for firmware on U9

    I don't ever use Metro Launcher but after the update it didn't get updated and the date is in UK format.
    I have just installed it from system, app and it is now in US format.

    PS Presently on my U9 it is in UK format!

    I'm unable to change the time daydream is initiated from 5 minutes. When I click on the icon to do that it just reverts to the menu.

    If I change the language from English UK to English US, it works.

    Clear the cache of the Kodi app?
    Re-enable passthrough settings after updating firmware? (options are reset after each OTA update).

    To enable the new Kodi passthrough:
    1.) Go to Settings -> Audio -> Digital Sounds
    2.) Configure as "HDMI" or "SPDIF" depends on your amplifier type

    We randomly found a Rapoo and it seems to work ok.

    1.) We are going to change to this DD MMM, e.g. 17 JUL, 31 DEC, OK?
    2.) It's purely IP based, and if you are connecting by VPN, it will be showing the destination's weather info.
    3.) Android only allows us to map this icon to the build in VPN feature, not 3rd party app's.
    4.) This feature is less important since Android 5.x, as Android closes unused apps by itself.

    Thanks for your answers. Yes - I just wrote it - I only had to enable HDMI - that was my mistake after upgrading.
    But - where are my postings? I can not find them?(Crossforum?)

    Anyway - that solved it :)

    1) nice one
    2) who ever thought we wanted this feature on a what is primarily a media player , lets just have the time and date showing
    3) can you not find a way round this as its very misleading
    4) OK...but is it not accessible via launcher interfaces , wheres it hidden away ??

    just generally on the metro interface it does look very tired and outdated now and could do with a facelift and more user configurable options ...can you not get someone to spend some time on designing a new interface, perhaps a work experience student or something like that , a nice little project for somebody

    Believe me, we always want to change, but more users prefer improving/modifying the existing launcher than changing it.
    With all these shortcuts being introduced in the past, it's a launcher that you need the minimal moves to run things (after you customized it).
    Facelift - Yes, we did that twice, and will do it again.
    More user configurable options - Please feel free to suggest.
    Can you be that somebody? :rolleyes:

    For 4.) It's just a line of command... not an app...
    For 3.) Maybe removing that icon...

    What problem to be exact? Can't launch? Can't play? Warning messages?
    We're in Hong Kong so we need more information.

    Hi Ken,

    App works, you can login and see all the content, but when you wanna play something, you get an error message ( temporaly unavailable or something similar, now im not at home, i'll post it later)
    The problem comes with new firmware FW013, with FW012 app was working fine.

    Hi, I have updated neo to fw013 through OTA first. It got updated but once booted, 'MINIX' boot animation comes followed by the promt 'Android is upgrading' and then comes home launcher selection list. Now the problem for me is that after 3 seconds of home launcher selection it goes back to book animation and goes on in infinite loop.

    I even tried full image flash and the result is same.
