    According to this news:

    Release Candidate 2 Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS firmware for MINIX NEO X8-H Plus is now available to download from the MINIX Forum.

    I want to put Lollipop on my X8-H Plus,but I'm pretty much frightened that I will do something wrong.I'm not so familiar in updating firmwares.

    Is there any tutorial for dummies,step by step?

    What's the easiest,fastest and most secure way to do it?

    Thanks a lot.

    OTA, yes but we don't know how soon. They are busy ironing out some bugs. So they've released 2 updates in a space of two months so i call that good progress. Just be patient.

    Thanks a lot vicom.I'll wait then.Especially because my Minix still running good on Kitkat,but I want Lollipop mostly because of Kodi 17.3. Krypton.

    You mean this:

    1.) HD audio passthrough - it's a S812 series CPU limitation, lack of I2S channels;
    2.) Refresh rate of mediacodec - Amlogic haven't make this feature working on Lollipop; ?

    Is this big problem in everyday use?

    1, they sort of got it to work on the MinixXBMC 17.3, it doesn't work on the official Kodi.. Unless you really want DTS sound it shouldn't be a problem.

    2, there are some videos that will suffer from stuttering/smooth playback due to the refresh rate mismatch. 24p vs 60p

    Thanks vicom.
    But obviously,no OTA,someone ask them on facebook:

    The final, stable version will not be released via our F.O.T.A Update System. You will need to manually install this Android Lollipop OS update.

    So, I will try to update it manually.
