    Semi-noob here but my feet have been wet a while. I seem to not be able to turn on location services. Is that something that gets left out to increase performance, or something to do with the MAC fix? I need a stable (unrooted) rom that has a functioning location service to remotely update my apps. Thank You.

    Weird. I flashed 5 minis with the latest rom and 2 outa the 5 the ethernet was on but not connecting. But if i flipped the wifi on as well it worked. FAct! Im not making it up.

    Flashed first the new fw. Then the 1080p fix then root.

    See this ***Kitkat CE - 1080p update (only for x5 series)

    Do i actually need that on my mini???

    Because just right now after installing it a 3rd box has had the internet not work via ethernet.

    SO its this which is causing the problem.

    OK cheers!! Ill be avoiding this in the future then. Once its flashed. I take only a fresh fw flash will rid it from a box yes !?

    Next firmware release will probably have full HD 1080p ( new method ), where all issues are solved regarding screen scale etc..
    It will be pushed through OTA when ready.

    Hi, I'm a noob to this, how do I update my X5 Mini to this latest 4.4.2? And then do I also need to install one of the KitKat CE updates, and if so, which one?
