    hi, need help on this update, actually got firmware KOT49H.20160328 on my X8-H+,
    when i try to update to 10 using OTA, something goes wrong and i dunno why.
    I mean, after clicking on system update, dowloaded the update ad rebooted, MINIX remains frozen on the start screen with MINIX logo and Android robot.
    If i turn off power MINIX restart normally.
    Can someone help me?
    Thanks

    You could try clearing data/cache of the System Update app and try again, or Option 2 here...

    The Kodi/Xbmc stop working, when I try to run it the screen goes black.
    I downloaded the play store version and work but is preferable to use the minix version?
    What can I do for re install it?

    Since the Fw010 update, my Neo X8-H plus sometimes won't wake from sleep mode. It just gets warm and unresponsive, so I have to unplug power, wait for it to cool, then plug it back in. I'm running XBMC 16.3 Beta, and I always try for a proper XBMC shutdown before putting my device in sleep mode. Please tell me my box isn't dying!

    Hi!!! After any firmware upgrade is recommended that you do a factory reset. Try that.

    If you have an X8 Plus then you have the latest firmware.
    This thread is for the X8-H Plus!

    Not so. The firmware updates have also included new features, updated apps etc as well as bug fixes.
    Just some examples;
    FW002 - Added "HDMI & SPDIF passthrough" option, Added Logitech Harmony remote support, Minix Metro launcher updated
    FW003 - Added self-adaptive refresh rate switching option,
    FW006 - Added auto sleep timer option, Added SMB server option, Updated Minix launcher
    FW007 - libstagefright security patches, Added simultaneous HDMI and analog audio switch, Added Ethernet to faked WiFi state option
    FW008 - Updated MINIX Metro UI, Updated YouTube app, Improved Miracast app compatibility
    FW009 - Added long press power button entering recovery menu option (~8s)

    In any event, updates which only have bug fixes are still updates.
