    Consumers who always need to upgrade at the end of their two year contract to the latest and greatest shiny new model are exactly those who have at the end of the month nothing more then 20$ in their pockets. :p

    Especially in schwiizerland - a blending country where the royalties (Gemeinden und Staat) rip
    off the last money from you. Now i stick out the middle finger to them as i live abroad far
    cheaper, and with more living quality!

    Hello. Im trying to uppdate my minix from 4.4.2 to lollipop or later but cant find any firmware.
    Put in the latest 009 (build nr 20160328). Is it possible to uppgrade to 5.1 or higher or do I have to by a new tv box.

    As explained before, officially Amlogic didn't release SDK for the X8 series processors.

    We've got the last SDK for X8-H PLUS processor, and we made firmware based on that.

    Next, we are porting it to NEO X6, and if it came out to be successful,

    then we shall try the same on X8 series, please note.

    Good luck!
    I hope you are successful as I would hate to buy a different box to replace my NEO X8-H.
    Could you give us some idea on timescales? Are we talking days, weeks, months?

    Installed MyGica Media Center and everything works except for the main part which is playing videos smoothly.

    Every video judders every couple of seconds and the picture is washed out. Comparing the picture quality to SPMC is night and day.

    Just to confirm are you saying it's possible my Minix x8-h could possibly get an official update to lollipop?
    Atm I very tempted to flash this probox2 firmware but willing to wait a few more months if something official is in the works.
    Atm the box is useless to me on the current firmware because of the audio drop outs and the 2 main apps I use are no longer compatible below lollipop (emby and Kodi)

    I recently upgraded my Minix to the probox2-x + and works great. Unreal that Minix couldn't give us an upgrade but a firmware from another companies works just great. Gave new life to my Minix
