    Change log:
    1. Fixed Ethernet MAC address reading error bug

    3. Fixed HDMI-CEC wakeup issue
    4. Fixed Vietnam htvonlinetv bug
    5. Fixed Bluetooth failed to re-connect bug
    6. Added self-adaptive refresh rate switching option (no need to enable switching inside of XBMC anymore)
    7. Fixed some 25fps videos playback stuttering issue
    8. Fixed eurosport app keep loading issue
    9. Fixed "Saint Seiya MP4" kind of playback stuttering issue
    10. Improved HDMI passthrough compatibility with some older TVs
    11. Fixed Indonesia TV Plus app playback quality issue
    12. Fixed TV Radio Malaysia app playback quality issue
    13. Fixed Indonesia Lumen app playback quality issue
    14. Channel 13 patch removed
    15. 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 DISCONNCET 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!)

    There is a very important new feature, we tried our bests to pull the schedule earlier:
    Self-adaptive refresh rate switching.

    P.S. Mind your tone speaking in this forum.

    i wasn't trying to be negative, i didn't have much problem with the previous firmware thats why - and some expect it to rain gold with a new firmware - so was just trying to find out he had any bugs with 002 that we don't know about ;)

    btw. whats the "enable remote" in minix settings?

    EDIT: btw i didn't use the app, just went to system settings and clicked "system update" (not "system updates") which worked same way.

    yeah would be nice with a zip/rar so we can reset without having to go back to 002 and update again ;)

    What do you mean? After the update when you reset it will still be 003.
