    Hi, All
    I have recently updated my minix box to 002 firmware through usb method and now I want to update it to 003 firmware. Every time I open up Minix Software Update app and start downloading 539 MB update I am facing "Network connection failed" error. Can anyone please tell me what is real issue here? I checked my net connection and it is working fine.

    Why not update to 009 directly?

    Is it possible to update it directly to 009? I have 2015-02-07 003fw installed on my minix box now. Will you please share steps to upgrade it to 009 directly?

    2. Less boot time
    3. Miracast started working, it never worked for me earlier
    4. Google remote started working
    Overall Happy Minix User.

    This means you can use Option 2 and not lose data! (y)

    If you want to start over with a clean device then use Option 1.

    thanks to your immediate respond. what if i choose Option 1... could it be possible to do backup my box first? how to save it or backup (usb stick, hook up to my pc or google account) ?

    thanks. i really appreciate!!!

    I would go Option 2 first and if you have any issues after the update then think about Option 1.
    Generally what would you want to backup?

    yep, i'm not thinking... i don't need to backup the system. thanks for letting me know.

    So you're not going with Option 2?
    For Option 1, full system image reflash, use the tool that comes included in the .rar file.

    Just one more thing!
    Do you use/have Kodi/XBMC set up to your liking? If so you should make a backup before you do anything else!
