    Thanks very much for your info and good news. I am really eagler and still waiting for next FW 004.

    Why is Android Lollipop (5.1) not updated this FW to Minix?

    Until now I don't get any information about Android 5.1 for Minix. :-(
    No Android 5.1 for Minix in the future?

    One thing at a time :) If you don't, what is that Android 5.1 feature you are looking for which is not there in Minix?

    Hope it fixes the buffering problems.
    Despite various changes I tried in the "advance setting" XML it still sucks from time to time.

    I mean Android TV instead of Tablet/Smartphone.
    No need to use Smart TV.
    There is more apps for Android TV. That's why I asked here.

    Whether this Android 5.1 is coming soon or?

    I really doubt about Android tv coming to Minix. However, there is a chance that 5.1 might come to Minix

    no advantage with getting lolipop. as long as the streaming part of the device is stable and working I wouldn't mind running on android 2.x

    Why do ppl want Android 5.1? Its buggy as hell.... I have a nexus 4 with spontanous reboots, apps not working well, lag in menu interface etc etc etc. I even read today that the 5.1 update kills the device like nexus 7. You can do a search if you do not believe me.

    I'd stay away from android 5.1

    For me as a user who've been waiting for a fix for Bein Sports streaming issue since December 2014, I dont care about above announcement as it does not provide any timeline.
    We kept getting promises for the past 5 months to resolve this issue with no luck, and now we get a general message that it is coming with no even a time estimate..

    If we do have a choice, we would prefer to stay at Android 4.4.4 for a long long long time...:sick:
    It's been released for X8-H Plus already, next will be X8/X8 Plus/X8-H.
    Sorry for the long wait, it's this month. (y)
    We just wish to fix as much things as we could when we release fw004.
    (Amlogic fixed the issue only with the latest SDK which was released on March, that's why)

    testing fw004 on Samsung latest flagship 9800 series with external connection, apparently they have fixed the flickering issues that affect all 2014 models! (they wouldn't admit it of course!)

    Now I strongly believe they silently fixed the hardware issues found on 2014 series.
