    Does Google's voice search work? And the volume of the remote control?

    since I have no way to connect my Minix to my windows 10 pc using Amlogic USB Burning Tool, I tried various versions too,
    I tried to put the zip file in usb stick FAT32 , then I entered in recover and tried to flash from udisk the zip file, BUT
    I received this

    E: Footer is wrong and E: Signature Verification failed and Install Aborted

    Please HELP , is there any other way to flash this rom ?

    That will not work as the zip file contains the img file for the burning tool. The zip file is not an OTA type file!

    You could try the BurnCardMaker method...

    Thank you , I created the SD card as per instruction, now I am doing exactly this

    1. Plug out device and then plug in.
    2. Keep pressing reset with a toothpick + press down power button (3 seconds).
    3. Must release power button after 3 seconds.
    4. Keep holding reset until you get to the setup screen.

    BUT , the point 4 ends with a blank screen . I pressed reset for minutes , the process never starts and always ends with a blank screen. Any idea please ? I factory/reset in Recover too before the point 1, no help.

    I tried everything all day , no luck here. :cry:

    Using USB burner no way to connect with PC , I tried on 2 PC running windows 10 , no way.
    Using BurnCardMaker , I receive a blank screen and the upgrade never starts.
    Upgrade using Recover is not possible

    Anyone knows if there are alternative to flash this ROM ? Does exist and android app to flash it or other ways ?
    Or where can I find an "how to" to create an OTA type file starting from this img file ?

    Thank you!

    all works correctly for me except of my external HD is no more recognized , I tried all USB ports in my minix. Should I need to reformat it FAT32 ?

    As far as Netflix goes, if you are rooted, or "other than stock" you may have issues installing Netflix. They made the decision (they, being Netflix) to flip the proverbial bird to Developers and anyone running a custom ROM by blocking it in the PlayStore from any altered device. You can still install it with third party apk distributors like Aptoid though. I have also found that there are more than one Netflix apk on the PlayStore, and if you scroll down to the other or like apps, another version of the Netflix apk will appear.

    I can't say for sure, I'm still on the Bob's custom ROM that was made for this device a couple years ago. I tried updating to this one but couldn't get it flashed (I do not have the correct flashing tool,or it's because I'm using Windows 10??). As soon as I can figure out how to install this ROM, I'll test and then post either the link to a working Netflix apk or directions how to get it to work. But since this is not like his last custom ROM (in a TWRP flashable zip), it seems all the ways I try to install fails. I must not be using the correct flashing tools...lol... It was so much eisier in a flashable zip. But, I do understand the dev has a life and can't hold our hands, and I am happy for the work he has shared.

    Maybe I'll check out the other update/rom that was posted 3 posts below yours. Who knows. I may be more successful with flashing that build.
