    Please have respect to our members and forum.
    That there is a support forum does not mean you can just say what you want in an disrespectful manner.
    Your issues can be solved if you just ask in a polite way.
    This is my first and last warning to you.
    It is too bad we need to act this way as if we are in a kindergarden :(

    I am cleaning up this thread.

    Thanks for the help as using the beta 8 firmware worked to allow the addon to function. However the minix is very unstable and creates frequently. If I check for an update of firmware will the add-on then become unusable once again? Maybe because i am using it to download torrents using ttorrent it is unstable. Any suggestions to make it even a little reliable??

    If it crashes, try Hardwareguru's fix. You will find the link in his signature.

    Any ETA on when later on is? I really need to ship this back to my seller. I also noticed that it appears as though it is downloading fine and then randomly between 79 and 130mb the connection speed starts to slow down drastically and the file fails due to network timeout. It does this on 2 different computers on seperate physical networks so the problem is not on this end but maybe your server or file host.

    hope the extra info helps resolve this problem.


    edit: was able to download file by pausing download whenever the connection began to slow and then continue download after a few moments. this kept the download speeds high enough to keep it from failing at a partial download.

    hello i dont know if this issue has been resolved but all downloads from minix hve always done this do me. i learned to use a download manager like jdownloader to download minix stuff. i used it already for file hosting sites. it will let the connection drop then just pick up where it left off again

    hello, I am having a big problem trying to get a good stock firmware DL. I have downloaded the FW from both official and forum sites and each time I try to unzip them it returns an error msg declaring the file corrupt! Is there another site I can DL a good Fw from?

    Your not suppose to unzip it !
    Just make sure the you downloaded the complete F/W.
    Move the file onto the interal SD card storage and it will start to update by itself !

    Thanks, sorry i think theres a coms prob here. I am trying to update fw via pc method as my minix has developed a problem i.e. the display from the hdmi to tv is not working, so i have no way of seeing whats going on or selecting files etc from the minix so my only option or unless someone knows differently is to go back and reinstall or upgrade the fw nd hope this fixes the prob with the hdmi display. So i'll re phrase, where is the link for the pc method fw? Thanks in advance. Actually just read the 2nd thread ref flash instructions and it seams i was correct the first time as the instructions are for this method. So my origional problem are these two fw files corrupt?

    Try using a download manager to download the file. Is there any reason you want to flash this old firmware and not the latest one?

    hello Higgs, thanx for the response. I have downloaded the latest fw and managed to use the burning tool method but the update procedure fails at 4% with the following:
    [17:01:22 324][HUB3-1][Err]--failed:[17:01:22 324][HUB3-1][Err]--Check command return failed
    [17:01:22 356][HUB3-1][Err]--[0x30201004]UBOOT/Disk initialize/Send command/Error result
    I get this each and every time so I have come to the conclusion that the box is in someway unable to complete the process so I will be returning it as faulty to the supplier..thanx again.

    Some things to check before you return it;
    Make sure you are using a usb2.0 port, (do not use a usb hub)
    Check that you have the correct firmware (i.e x8-h plus firmware will only work on that model)
    Check the downloaded firmware is correct (check the md5 checksum)
