    When i download the link i get:

    I need i think : minix_metro_v2.7_com.xiaozhenhe.minix.apk, for the original minixlauncher?
    Where is apk_extractor_pro_v3.6.7_com.magdalm.apkextractor.apk for?
    And the power_menu_v1.0_com.minix.power_selector.apk for?

    I switch back to Probox2 menu.

    I have a weird problem.
    When I turn the box off for a few days, the date and time are moving.

    Yes, in my case it was the bloody Minix Neo A2 airmouse that was redirecting the sound to itself!!!

    I am unable to upgrade. After booting into Recovery, the device (X8-H) is not available at all in the Burning tool nor Windows detects it (no USB connected sounds, nothing in device manager). I have tried to upgrade on two different PCs running latest Win10 x64 Pro with no avail. If I boot normally the device is visible in Windows as a multimedia device. Any suggestions?

    Well my friend, I've just been there!
    You'll get your unit back, by installing the SDcard way with the fw from here: http://www.minixforum.com/threads/x8-x8-plus-x8-h-official-firmware-009-20160324.11938/
    Like I've said, you have to use the 2nd variant: "USB .zip update package"

    I've told about my story here http://freaktab.com/forum/tv-player...-with-probox2-ex-firmware?p=668158#post668158

    Good luck!

    I have a huge request.
    Can anyone tell me if SwiFTP 1.24 opens correctly in Probox?
    The application has only 76.6 KB.

    The problem I described >here<, but Minix did not give me any logical and real answer.

    Well my friend, next year when you'll come, if you'll still have the old X8-H+ then you could try yourself and tell us if it'll work...
    Remember that you can't do anything unrecoverable to your unit.
    You will flash it... let's say it'll not work... then you'll flash back your stock firmware and you're done.
    But if I think that someone here said that Probox has S812 Amlogic and if I'm right, X8-H+ has the same CPU inside, than we can think that you'll have a big chance to win.

    Thanks anyway

    OK, I see... my mistake!
    But hey, I will keep saying that your CPU is in the same family, so you should give it a try.
    It's your lost if you don't :)

    Let me confirm that Probox image works great on Minix X8-H. However Minix Metro launcher caused a problems to me. Video in Kodi player was stuttering. When looking into Kodi/System info there was one of processor cores always loaded at 100%. After switching back to original Probox launcher everything works fine again. Thanks !

    Hi, I have to take back my few days old statement the Probox firmware works great on my X8-H. The important issue for me is a sound pass-through via SPDIF interface to my home theater. I spent few days fiddling with settings in Kodi and Android's Digital sound menu with no success. Sound was send out through SPDIF but as a stereo only.
    I was forced to leave Android and install linux with LibreELEC image with Kodi 17. It solve my issues completely, there is any video stuttering and audio swithes to DTS 5.1 if available.
