    AirDroid is one I think.

    I did not figure out how to use the stock one that came with my X6 but upgraded it and worked unless I enabled Wifi. No go over ethernet.

    You have already started your own thread about your problems with this app. Please, there is no need to double your posts!

    Also this app does not require WiFi to function as already commented here...

    Why do you need to keep going round in circles?

    I have asked you a question in your thread but you feel the need to post here something you have already posted!

    But the app does not need to be tricked into thinking you have WiFi when you are connected via ethernet!

    We have made this feature working on the coming 007 firmware.

    Upgraded to 007 FW an hour ago. 1st thing I tested was this new feature, so checked both the ethernet and the new fake WiFi setting: it's working great!!(y)
    The app I tested with is Telekom TV.

    Guys, test the new FW with your reported apps asking for WiFi and let us know your feedback.

    Great job done Minix team! Big thanks for taking into consideration my feature request!

    It's a shame, that you have to root your device and set it up hanycrafted. I thought the boxes have Ethernet, so hey no problem. And now?
    HEY MINIX: Fix this immediatley. We pay you money for the boxes and the do not do what the have to. I tried now to set up my 2 boxes for hours and - of course - I bricked them :(((
    (OK after hours, they are working again).
    But is is my job as a paying customer to do the job of minix? NO!

    Hey you don't need to root the device because the team has modified the firmware now there is an option where you can make a selection. You don't understand the problem it's not of minix but some app of android have not this option.

    Well... sorry. After I installed Etherneth specially for my two boxes because of bad WLAN-connection I realised that 99% of the Apps dont work withou WLAN. That made me angry. Why Minix sells boxes that dont work with Ethernet? (I know, it's Android...). I tried to root the boxes and after I bricked them, I had a lot of frustration work to bring them back to life.
    Now I read, that I dont have to root them?
    Where can I find the option that you mentioned, Pablox68?

    Well now I see my mistake: I startet at this http://www.minixforum.com/threads/fake-wifi-how-to-trick-apps-asking-for-wifi.4361/
    and at the end I ended here. What I didnt realise, that for my 2 Boxes (X8-H Plus and the X6) does not exist a firmware that allows me to fake WiFi :(

    So I'm back to start. So I will write my question in the x6- and the X8-H Plus-Forum... hopefully Minix brings very quick a new firmware. After I failed to root my boxes I never try this again.

    If I was anoying someone her in tthis forum: my deepliest apogolize (also for my bad english too)

    Didn't you read the post above yours? The option is there in the latest firmware for all the x8 models.

    hmm...
    In the threat about this firmware it's written: *(Please note that this firmware does NOT work with X8-H PLUS - different CPU/ wireless chipset)"
    For me that means, that for my X8-H PLUS this option doesn't exist (also not for my other box - a X6).

    An if for the X8-H PLUS this option exists, where do I find it and can activate it? I don't see any option in the configuration.

    For the second time as @Higgs pointed out, did you not read Post#33 above ?!

    Go to the link and all will be revealed! ;)

    Note: You need the latest firmware for the X8-H Plus - http://www.minixforum.com/threads/official-x8-h-plus-007-firmware-20150831.7420/

    I read #33. I dont have this box to check.

    When I try to update the firmware (OTA), I get tge message, that my firmware is up to date.

    So I will try to update manually this evening.

    (BTW: for my other Box X6 it looks like there is no sokution yet. But for this I'm in the wrong forum)

    Earlier you said you had bricked your device and now it was working again. One would assume to get it working again you would have flashed the latest firmware! ;)
