    Hi Ken.
    Just tried an OTA update using the Android app and it keeps telling me that my system is up to date. What gives?

    Known issue: "Setup" hotkey of stock IR remote is temporarily disabled, will fix ASAP.

    I think we have accidentally introduced this problem when we add the Logitech Harmony support.
    Sorry about that! We shall fix it tomorrow.

    Will make it nicer when we release the hotfix for the stock IR remote.
    There are some minor issues there (color, width, etc).

    Full image and zip package are both available, please check above.
    P.S. The problems you described do not happen on my setup. Might be your system is busy working under the background, or, system is corrupted. I can't rule out the possibility.
