    I have firmware 20141213, and when I use the new update app, it says "New update found" and starts downloading, but it gets stuck at 86% (390mb) completed, and keeps getting me to retry, I have hit retry at least 20 times, still no progress. I have restarted the box, and also tried Ethernet and WiFi. I also cleared the data and cache of the app. Each time it gets stuck at the exact same position. Any help?

    Why question for the update? Like it would be releasing faster because asking for it? I really believe it will be released when the team is finished.
    If you ask again for release date, and the update will be delayed, you only get unrightfully mad at the developers.. Dont believe stress would release something faster...

    He's not questioning about the version 004, he's genuinely stuck updating to the most current fw that we are at...

    Same issue here. Connection keeps dropping according to the ap but it is nothing to do with the internet connection as all other wired and wireless devices are fine. If I repeatedly try and click resume when the option presents I might (every ten attempts or so) download another 5mb of data. Sounds more like a server issue than the firmware? I used to have issues with hanging downloads when downloading from the minix site directly as well. I'm up to 82% after three hours now....

    either a DNS problem or my ISP has blocked minix.hk and its servers. I used a VPN and am now downloading the updates FOTA

    Did anyone find a solution for "Network Connection Failed"? I've tried updating on two different network connections, w/ and w/o firewall turned on - basically every connection scenario conceivable. Is it just jammed up servers? If there is someone with a fix please help, or if you wouldn't mind pointing me to the fix. I am currently on KOT49H.20150207 release-key and found this thread via the search forum tool.

    Eventually I managed to get version three to download by repeatedly hitting reconnect. Took a weekend To complete that way. Same issue with firmware version four though and I haven't been able to get past 92 percent downloaded for two weeks now. The only other advice I saw was to get a new router which I don't plan on doing just to update firmware on one device. Can someone tell me why a vpn would resolve this?

    I heard you the first time ;)
    Try clearing the cache/data from the System Update app. If you are on wifi try ethernet or vice versa.

    I assume you are on fw002 as you're posting this in the fw003 thread. I'd suggest you would be better flashing direct to fw007 using the update.zip method.
    You'll get the update.zip file in the fw007 thread and the instructions in the general guides section.

    Ah cool and by flashing straight to fw007 i will have all the benefits of previous updates?

    I am trying to update to firmware 002 so that my fota updates start working.

    When I put the two files on usb and select update I get to select the update folder, box then reboots but screen remains black. Nothing else happens. I have to hard reboot the box. Minix then launches but the firmware hasn't updated.

    Can somebody point me In The right direction to get this resolved.
