    I have the Neo-X8H-Plus and am stuck on Android4.4.2 with Kernel Version 3.10.33 and build number KOT49H.20161222.

    Whenever I check on the OTA it always states that I am up to date

    Is there going to an update to Android 5? I have seen on the forum that there is an update but I cannot seem to get it OTA.

    I cannot update to Kodi Krypton as it needs Android 5.

    Please can some one advise.

    Many Thanks

    Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately I am not as tech savvy as you are. In the past two years I have hardly been on the forum as I have had no issue with my box.
    But with no OTA happening I thought of coming here for help and advise.

    There has already been an Android 5 BETA version and now there is an RC (Release Candidate) version. Next there will be an Official release.
    If you want to try the RC then you have to flash a full system image with the burning tool and a PC. If you wait for the Official release I expect you will have to do the same. I don't think it will be possible by OTA.


    An alternative to using the burning tool...

    Many Thanks for your kind advise ...much appreciated. But just to confirm I am going to go to the below link......

    June 2017 update - release candidate firmware:Download link of X8H-PLUS Android Lollipop release candidate firmware:
    Download from MINIX forum server (Europe):http://www.minixforum.com/downloads/download.php?file=X8H_PLUS_LOLLIPOP_RC.rar

    Down load the rar file on my windows pc. ...

    And I will then follow the alternative method you have suggested above as I feel that might be more easier.

    Do I run the risk of bricking my device if there is a mistake on my part? Please could I have your thoughts.

    Many Thanks.

    Way back in the TV access card days their where lots of forums on how to do it. I never seen anyone criticize for asking for help. Fred, if you don;t want to help then don't say anything. juts saying.

    Thank you for your help guys. I successfully flashed the firmware. Signed into my google account. But when I go to google play I get the error:

    Error retrieving information from server [DF-DFERH-01

    Tried all the tricks, deleting data, deleting cache, factory resetting but still the same issue. Any ideas guys?

    Many Thanks
