    Change log:

    2. Fixed HDMI-CEC wakeup issue
    3. Fixed Vietnam htvonlinetv bug
    4. Fixed Bluetooth failed to re-connect bug
    5. Added self-adaptive refresh rate switching option (no need to enable switching inside of XBMC anymore)
    6. Fixed some 25fps videos playback stuttering issue
    7. Fixed eurosport app keep loading issue
    8. Fixed "Saint Seiya MP4" kind of playback stuttering issue
    9. Improved HDMI passthrough compatibility with some older TVs
    10. Fixed Indonesia TV Plus app playback quality issue
    11. Fixed TV Radio Malaysia app playback quality issue
    12. Fixed Indonesia Lumen app playback quality issue
    13. Re-enabling AML remote controller option (http://minix.com.hk/downfile/RC_MINIX.apk)

    MINIX XBMC V13.3.3 final (required manual installation):
    http://minix.com.hk/downfile/xbmcminix-armeabi-v7a_13.3.3_final.apk

    Known issue:
    Do not keep press and hold a particular key for too long when using CEC,
    it might kill the CEC process, we are still looking for a final fix. Pressing a key repeatedly (not holding it) is OK.

    NEVER DISCONNECT THE POWER DURING THE UPDATE PROCESS!!

    (Our engineers will be going home to have their new year holidays for the coming 3 weeks, so please excuse us for checking less here, feel free to leave any feedbacks/suggestions here, we shall follow-up when holidays finished, thanks!)

    I'm in the UK. Is there a download to install via USB method? And is there a change log?

    Hi Guys
    I know it's a daft question, but does "change log" mean that by clicking the "update Button" we will get an automatic OTA update. Change log I assume will enable this update to happen for x8 h Plus boxes.

    This update is NOT for x8 h PLUS. However the update for the plus has been announced at http://www.minixforum.com/threads/official-003-firmware-via-minix-fota.4052

    So after upgrading to 002, the 003 update isn't available when you check for updates via ota?

    Yeah. And i'm on the normal X8. Is it possible that it's just not been released to the European servers yet?

    firmeware only 85 mb?
  15. Snakebite

    Ken - will this update be available for manual download?
  16. Snakebite

    Snakebite Active Member

    The FOTA updates were designed to be smaller just to address bugs and keep data... this probably accounts for it being 85mb - would anyone be able to confirm my thinking?
