    This version will enable ota updates. But you will need the rk flash tool to install this one. Pay attention to the fact that all data will be erased!

    Hello. In the final version of the YouTube app will support in 1080? Or is it not not because of firmware?

    No thanks, leave it with the name of Community Edition, Minix does not deserve to have this firmware, where are his engineerings that would have to develop the X7? (... on the new X8 (n) )
    Thanks guys for your great job and to overcome to the lies of Minix.
    This is your jobs! (y)(y)(y)

    MINIX also helped us, so also the MINIX engeneers are a part of it!
    We share information, the reason there is no X7 kitkat official at the moment was because we where working on it.
    What use will it have to have 2 identical firmwares?
    Please dont blame MINIX for somthing that is not true!

    How do I use the rkflashtool? I'm not a techie. Can it be done with a Mac if I need an external computer. I've been waiting for this update because I'm sick of xbmc, Chrome and other apps constantly closing and the sluggish speed of the X7.My dual core phone is faster. I was expecting a regular OTA or flash. This is becoming a headache. Never again will I buy Minix.

    I reported already some time ago an external mic in the 3.5 mm jack does not work, not in the beta official neither in pre-release custom rom.
    And with this new release it still does not work.
    (It works with JB, so no hardware problem.)

    Can you please ask in a normal way again? i wont respond on such CAPS messages as if you are the only important person on the planet.

    Andrea Borgia Member

    Yes, same as before: homescreen resolution and YT resolution are not linked, you can see 1080p vides on KK just like the previous version.

    i dont have the option of 1080p on youtube . the maximum that i have is 720p . my fw is 010 with pure 1080p package .
    thanks

    To the best of my knowledge, that depends on the video, not on the player. Here is a selection of test videos which are available in 1080p or higher:
