    Hi, regarding "[OTA server update will be opened 2 weeks after]".

    When will it be happening? I've just bought this box and my Minix XBMC is still Frodo.

    Why there is no 1080 version ??
  12. When will x7mini get the 1080p version like the x7 got as these almost share the same hardware except for wireless and flash. Thank you.

    I am a relative new user of Minix, and have never tried to upgrade.

    My Minix Neo X7 mini has a version called 2013-10-9.4.2 007C.

    A few questiones to the experienced upgraders:

    - On my minix I found a directiory called /root. It is empty. Is that where the renamed download shall be placed?
    - Is there any risk for killing the device if I follow the directions given above?
    - Is there any escape - to restore an earlier version etc.?

    Thank you for an open and frank response. I do not want to disturbe my device which I like - but I wantto have access to OTA updates.
