    Got my minix today with the oldest stock firmware. Flashed the x8 h plus with my laptop, worked like a charm. Now I'm installing my apps. Issues so far, location can't be determined. NO mousewheel zoom. Sometimes no sound, after reboot sound is back. Google play not working like it should. (apps cannot manually be updated) Earthcam not working, and it worked fine on my X7..I hope these issues will be solved.

    1. Mousewheel zoom: I don't use a normal mouse on any android device, is mousewheel zoom a std feature on android? Does it work on other android devices, is it just specific apps?
    2. No sound: Please give more details of your sound setup and audio settings. Is this in specific apps?
    3. Google Play not working: When you say apps cannot be manually updated, can you give more details, why can't they be updated, do you get an error message etc
    4. Earthca not working: I'm not familiar with this. is it an android app available on Google Play? Can you give a link to test this out?

    1. Mousewheel zoom is in minix x7 firmware, simply press the mousewheel and roll it. (zoom in /zoom out) very handy with Google maps and in browsers.
    2. Sound problem solved, my mistake.
    3. Google playstore problems solved after the new update file.
    4. Earthcam App is also working now.
    Thnx for the reply.

    Zoom in/out map became press and hold the mouse left button and drag up/down since Android 4.4.

    Yes correct, but you can't use that zoom in/out method, 'for example' in Clash of clans and many other games/apps. That's why @HardwareGuru implemented mousewheel zoom in his fabulous roms for the Neo X7. It's really a pity that he's not part of the X8-h plus team....

    You have the wrong file. You need the rar file!

    The zip file is a full OTA package that is placed on to a USB flashdrive or an SD card!

    Ah, sorry my bad, I thought what I've downloaded is the full package + usb burning tool. I'm really sorry for this. :censored:
