    Dear all,

    Here is the pre-release 002 firmware for your evaluation purpose:
    LINK REMOVED
    PLEASE NOTICE THAT THE BURNING TOOL HAS TO BE UPDATED PRIOR TO UPDATING:
    http://minix.com.hk/downfile/USB_Burning_Tool_v2.0.3_x86.rar

    (For those having slow downloading speed, please wait for the forum link to be provide by @HardwareGuru later today)

    Major change log since BETA 9.2:
    1.) Fixed some apps running with audio but no display issue (e.g. BEIN Sports, NBA Game Time, SPMC...etc);
    2.) Fixed HDMI-CEC issue, verified on 2014 Samsung, LG, SONY products;
    3.) Updated MINIX XBMC version to add auto-frame switching, 3D playback; (need manual activation in SYSTEM-> Settings -> Video -> Playback -> Adjust display refresh rate to match video);
    4.) Adding Logitech Harmony profile (we don't have this remote to verify, please check and feedback to us);
    5.) False HDMI status to allow some apps to run on HDMI output (e.g. SHOWTIME);
    6.) Fixed some 1080p 50fps video playback problems;
    7.) Fixed .TS streaming issue of XBMC;
    8.) Fixed "People" app sync. issue (CREDIT to Finless Bob of Freaktab.com for providing the solving method);
    9.) Adding DVI-signal support for some older TVs;

    Unsolved:
    Google Maps/Search...etc random crashing (We can't find the root cause yet, and it happens since Google updated some of their services, so we can't solve it at the moment);
    Google+ installation (It involves huge system modification and we can't risk to do it now);

    Regards,
    Team MINIX.

    Hi Ken,

    Really ood news. Just a question if possible: if I've installed beta 9.2, it will update via OTA, or it is needed manual installation?

    Thanks :)

    This version is the release candidate, next release will be official 002 and shall be pushed by OTA.
    This build is very close to the final that we are going to release.

    Download link is very slow and subject to frequent interruptions/resumes. Any chance of mirroring this on a better site? Thanks.
