    Are you referring to sounds when navigating the interface or when viewing media? The built in sounds have been changed but can be reset in interface settings

    The replacement for my X8-H Plus arrived. My NEO U9-H was here. I plugged "everything" in & It froze on first boot (black Minix screen). After waiting some time I did a hard reboot (unplug). I then realized it's probably the fact I had 2 HHD plugged in. After I unplugged them my U9 booted normally.
    Next I attempted an OTA system update. I received an "Warning unzip error". After I tried but failed twice to download, unzip & successfully update, I thought possibly a factory reset would help. After a factory reset I realized I wasn't performing a true OTA update. I had originally plugged in the ethernet cord and was using that to download the update. Not sure if it would help I unplugged the Ethernet cord and connected to my home Wi-Fi router. I once again attempted an OTA system update. Success!!!

    I should have known before I booted to not have everything plugged in. Must be getting sloppy in my old age..

    So my suggestions for anyone with a new U9-H are: do your first boot without anything plugged in. Then connect to your home wifi & proceed to an OTA system update.

    I've never has any issue with OTA and Ethernet!
    I've seen others mention that it has only worked for them with WiFi, strange?!

    Fantastic news @MINIX - Ken.

    I'm sure this will be worth the wait guys... If there's anyone out there that feels there's another android box manufacturer that delivers this level of support I'd be very surprised!

    Looks like minix launcher doesn't show that I am connected to a VPN. Tried with Openvpn and Ipvanish.

    I believe the VPN icon only switches to green if you set up a VPN in the Android Settings!

    Oh I thought it would turn green with any vpn connection. Thanks

    yes i agree thats how it seems to work, but would be much more sensible if it could be triggered by openvpn or other vpn providers app, which is probably what the majority of us use....seems a daft feature to me otherwise as its stands and its misleading :unsure:

    Not here it's not :(
    Reboot, cleared sys update app data still says I'm up to date on fw 003

    Same problem here as GH0st has. I'm not using a VPN either.

    I suspect the OTA FW004 update has been withdrawn - why can users not simply manually download a FW004-update.zip ?

    Update zip and full image usually come a couple days after the OTA
