    Hi,

    Android 7 (or 7.1) seems to be in progress but no ETA yet.
    We need more informations.

    The first ETA for 7 was September last year, so don't get your hopes up.
    I think Minix ran out of devs.

    Even though Amlogic released in March this year Oreo 8.0 for S912, there is no TV Boxes having migrated so far, there's probably some big issues behind.

    Apart this, I very surprised to not receive security updates regularly, even Huawei has understood that updates are important for consumers, my p20pro has been updated 3 times in a couple for months, mainly security patches and bugfixes... :)

    Well even Xiaomi struggles to have all features working in the recent Mi Box Oreo firmware. You can't really compare Minix to companies like Xiomi, Huawei - they are world giants.
    On a side note, I wonder what made Minix think they can charge so much for the box and compete with the big players without having the resources to invest.
    Expecting Nougat firmware from Minix would be more realistic I think
