    Would be nice to get root or an apk to transfer files from the u1 to say usb drive that doesn't take all day to happen
    Es file explorer is by far the best for transferring files for example making copies of your 3 gig. Kodi build to your pc, other file managers take hours to do this and then when they finish some files end up corrupt and u can't trust the backup

    Withe es file explorer copy to root does the 3gig. Kodi backup in 30 min+/-

    I've been testing all the file explorer es and the best one so far that actually transfers all the files properly without root isystem taking over 1.5 hours!!

    I have one great wish for any our product. Could you implement software or hardware (in next minix boxes) any button for hard reset and any combination buttons like in windows to soft reset. From time to time boxes freezes and only help pull out power cable. Something like force reset.

    I would think if the only way is to pull the plug then no series of key presses will work anyway!
    If you need something to help when it isn't completely frozen then you can use a Fast Reboot app and/or ES Task Manager widget or something similar.

    For professional uses (digital signage) of the Minix U1: It would be very nice to make it optionally possible to disable the "Starting apps." each time the player is booting. Especially when the TV is in portrait modus because the message is then displayed without rotation. This can be done by altering the SystemServer.java line 578 with the following code:

    if ("1".equals(SystemProperties.get("system_init.showstartingapps"))) { // = new line of code
    try {
      } catch (
    RemoteException e) {

    The above code would allow the option system_init.showstartingapps to be set to 1 in the firmware.

    Ken, I can also confirm issues with AVI files using XVID codec. I recently started watching my Simpsons collection again from the beginning and they are a mixture of AVI/XVID and M4V. Both appear to suffer from audio sync problems and become badly out of sync when watching over a network. I'm refering to using XMBC for MINIX latest build. Once file is re-encoded via HANBRAKE, issue is resolved by using H264/MP4. Which is fine as it reduced the files and cured my problem, but this is what I experienced personally.

    "Radio FM" is an Android app!

    I don't know if @Meridian's question was regarding the U1 having an integral FM tuner or not, but he liked my reply so he must be happy!

    Like to be able to upgrade to marshmellow or have the ability to change my internal drive to sd or usb. So all downloads and installs go directly to the sd or usb. The internal can fill up very quickly even with moving a download to sd you still have traces (data) left behind or it wont move at all. This feature i think should be an option on any media box letting the customer choose what works best for them. I love the u1 only had mine a few days but it blows my pivos and ouya out of the water. However the ouya does have the option of downloading and installing to usb.

    Which downloads?

    How are you doing that, by default the unit downloads to internal memory if your able to download and install directly to your sd or usb please tell me how your doing that with Android 5.1.1.

    App mnger 3 allows you to move an app from the internal to sd. That is not a direct download and install to sd and it wont move everything.

    I'm talking about downloads not app installs!

    AppMgr III just shows you which apps are moveable without the need to check every app in Settings.
    Personally I have never needed to move any apps!
