    Ich glaube nicht! (I don't know enough German to know if Google translate is correct or not!?)

    Ken, does wiping the cache partition also erase away ALL the installed APKs cache?

    I don't think so.

    Hi Ken!

    I cannot to update this way. My PCs doesn't recognize the amlogic drivers, so, they doesn't connect succesfully to the PCs by OTG.
    Do you have the amlogic S906 drivers?

    Or, could you send me the bootloader for Minix Neo U1 to flash directly from Sdcard?

    Thanks! Waiting for a reply!

    Also in a app I saw something like image root protected or something like that..
    Its weird after a couple of tries it finally completed it, just searching for the fw 006
    Also when will the fw 006 be released or is it already out? I read some people have it??

    Only the beta firmware has been released. You can get the beta firmware here - http://minixforum.com/threads/006-beta-firmware.11359/page-6#post-94327
    I'm not sure if the ota will work with the eta firmware so when the final firmware is released you may need to flash it again with PC.

    Your U1 is not rooted. What you see in the image is normal!
    I don't understand why you have been trying to flash it when you could have updated it via OTA?

    Thanks!
    I thought it was rooted (n)

    Do you know when the OTA comes out if I lose everything if I update?

    Thanks for the intel!

    If you now have FW005 and you wait for the OTA to FW006 then you will lose nothing! :)
    I believe FW006 is due anytime now! (y)
