Hi guys, I see the question asked a lot about whether these models will get a Lollipop update (mainly for Kodi 17 needs). I have talked to John so I can give you guys an answer and unfortunately it is no. As some of you are aware AMLogic provide the SDK (Software development kit) to MINIX and they make the firmware for the boxes from that. Unfortunately AMLogic do not provide a Lollipop SDK for the S802 chipsets used in these models. Which means it's literally impossible for MINIX to make a Lollipop based firmware. It is sad and it is something MINIX would happily provide if it was in their capabilities to do so. I also know that MINIX are showing your complaints to AMLogic in the hopes they provide better support for the chipsets they release. I'm not going to tell you to just buy a new model as I know that is out of reach financially for some people. I'm not sure what MINIXs plans are in regards to their MINIX XBMC. Sorry I can not give you better advice or news but I wanted to be able to at least give you some answers and insight into this situation. Edit: Actually my best advice for those who want Kodi 17 is to give this a try! http://minixforum.com/threads/x8-h-as-a-kodi-17-player-only.15818/#post-122928 I'm not sure if it would work for X8 or X8 Plus. but this is a community effort and these boxes are extremely difficult to hard brick so get in and have a go if you're keen!
