    Please be reminded that cache partition will be wiped during OTA upgrade and therefore user settings will be reverted to defaults.

    Was 3D conversion detection fixed for HSBS and HTAB in the new update of Minix? Still forced to use 15.3, to be able to proper see these movies on a 3D TV. Can this functionality be merged from 15.3 into 16.3 by Minix Devs?

    Don't worry, it is not as bad as it sounds, I've just updated OTA and you don't lose application passwords/ browser setting/customisation of the home screen or anything like that. The only setting I had to change back was in Settings => Audio => Digital Sounds => and change from the default PCM to in my case HDMI.

    Ohh, text icon in Google Now Launcher is cutted like in FW009A...
    Icons are very closed vertically and the bottom margin is too big.
    In FW009 it was perfectly... :-(

    Might be worth checking the display settings under general settings.

    What does this say?!
    Update it manually, if you didn't already before the OTA update!

    Thanks for this great new update. Turning off noise reduction in minix was a great idea. Its like "night and day" picture quality wise. The Ghosts have been banished just in time for Halloween!
