    Hi all,
    I updated to firmware 007A just for the new "Faked WIFI option", leaving the version FM002

    Anyway, this new feature seems not working.

    This feature does work for most streaming/TV viewing apps that require WiFi !

    Large apps from the Play Store ask, Download using WiFi only? In this case you do not need to, so you can deselect the box and it will download via ethernet. Yes, it would appear that the Fake WiFi is not functioning in ths situation but it isn't required as you have an ethernet option!

    I see, it worked fos ASPHALT 8.

    So this option fakes WIFI for the apps but not for the system itself. Understand. :)

    There is a problem with TVHeadend streams from dvbt . TVHeadend client app doesn't work (to be precise the app works as it should but stream does not).

    Hi all,
    I've got one question, I've got one minix x8 plus and I'm gonna upgrade to this firmware but I saw in the x8-h plus forum that it should be released last week the 008, my doubt is should I wait for the 008 since it's a matter of time to be release to here or upgrade it right away and then upgrade with FOTA to the 008?

    Thanks in advance

    I see no reason for not updating to firmware 007A now and then OTA'ing to 008 when it becomes available.

    It depends on how you are going to update the firmware!
    If you are using the burning tool and a PC you are probably better waiting and burning the 008 full system image.
    If you are updating via FOTA then you have to update to 007A to be able to receive 008.

    Just a question: the ZIP/USB method followed to FACTORY RESET, is equivalent to PC Burning tool method?

    For the cleanest flash always use the PC burning tool method!

    After the flash of the fw I did few days ago, the audio issue that seemed solved has occurred just a couple of times. I'm quite frustrated, but I must surrender cause I don't want to waste any more time on this, hope that this issue won't occur too frequently :-(

    OK thanks for reporting back.... That's disappointing, it's also disappointing that MINIX refuses to acknowledge the bug, hopefully the overdue 008 firmware will fix it

    Just for your info, i managed to fix this issue by cleaning the cash for both OTV and MXplayer.

    Since this update i have problem when i start my device.
    before the update, i started my device automatically with the tweak descibe in this thread : http://www.minixforum.com/threads/how-to-simplest-auto-power-on-tweak-ever.2633/

    Because when you use the jumper inside of the motherboard, the device start also automatically when you plug the power on, but when you want to shutdown, this one reboot .....

    After the update, the tweak doesn't work. The device start but stay on the begining screen...

    Anybody has already seen that?

    If you can help me, it's cool!

    Which firmware are you at now? As this is the 007a thread not the 009 thread!

    If you are at FW009 then it will be related to the fact that the Power button now serves to enter Recovery Menu without the use of the Recovery button at the rear of the device.

    Change log (since FW008 20160115 firmware):

    1.) Fixed PVR channel switch problem within XBMC/Kodi
    2.) Fixed Google Play Store bug
    3.) Fixed Livestream app streaming issue
    4.) Updated MINIX UI
    5.) Added long press power button entering recovery menu option (~8s)
