    Would the Minix U9-H would be updated to Android 7.0?

    Most likely to be 7.1.1, not 7.0.

    "A not-so-good news is that internal storage partitions have changed, which means most current TV boxes are unlikely to get an update, because it may not be possible to perform OTA update"

    At least we have reserved the partition since day 1 we started shipping out the products...

    Forum rules !

    " Don't ask for releases dates! Firmwares or updates or bug fixes will be released only when ready. All posts asking for ETA will be deleted without comments ";)

    That is one very lame rule. Fair enough plenty of other devices about.

    You may think it's lame but rules are rules ! Think about what the forums would be filled with if people were allowed to ask for dates on OS upgrades, firmware upgrades etc.......If you are going to abandon a brand because of a rule you deem " Lame " so be it ! I wish you well ;)

    One simple reason I decided on that rule when this forum was created...
    MINIX would give an ETA, 80% of people don't understand the E in ETA stands for Estimated.
    So MINIX would say ETA for new firmware is mid-June, starting from the 10th of June we would get 100s of angry people bitching that MINIX deceived them because it hadn't arrived yet.
    So a lame rule it may be but it's in place to deal with lame people with no grasp of how software development goes.

    I will bend the rules just this one time and say that MY (no affiliation with MINIX) estimate is to not expect it before the latter half of the year, MINIX have to wait for the SDK from AMLogic, then near on start from scratch.
    I wont be expecting it before November at the very least and January before it's nice and stable.

    That's fine, for the record I must be one of those 20% of people then if I know its coming thats good enough for me, I can wait! What I didn't want to do is buy a box and have to buy another next year. That is what I was getting at.

    Hello. I do not need to know the date of release of the new version of the software, please only inform whether it will be available at all?

    My frimware is FW007A 20171020
