    Anybody willing to help an old lady out?

    I have an X5 (NOT a mini). Flashed when first received, but not after. The unit still powers on, but no video. I had purchased one as a gift for a friend shortly after. He stopped using it, and offered it back to me. I took it when this one failed. His is flashed to 4.2.2. Netflix eternal loading. Xfinity TV Go (a different friend's account - he uses my Netflix, I use his Xfinity) plays off-color commercials (blue faces), and just reloads the same set of commercials - over and over and over - never plays content. Streaming downloaded content over local network works fine. Issues persist even under XMBC.

    If anyone has suggestions for the original no video one - AWESOME! Fire away!

    If anyone would be so kind as to walk this old lady through EXACTLY what I need to do, step-by-step on the other one, I'd be ever so grateful! I am in poor health, mind just isn't wrapping around exactly what I need to do from this unit's current state, and how. Honestly not being lazy. Used to proudly call myself a geekette, but shadow of my former self. Read all the posts, just so ill (and can't afford cable), that I'm reaching out for help. Anyone? Thanks for reading...

    Since you took the time to state that you don't have a X5 Mini, why would you post on the X5 Mini section.
    You should post in the X5 section.

    guys, updated with the .img that i found into the .rar file, using the rockchip pc tool.
    After that it works flowlessly but.. the minix home screen (launcher) is not working anymore (only the standard home is still working).
    any advice?

    Help needed. How long does OTA upgrade take? Im not sure if my x5 mini did that.. and now it's been a while and it's still in the Minix logo. I want to hard reset it but i dont know how. There no ports or reset button i can use.

    Pardon my ignorance.. bew here and new Minix user. And not so techy either. Thanks!

    I have just updated my X5 Mini to Kitkat 250. Have been trying to get the below apps to work without success .

    The apps is TVBOX9B & MKTV which can be found in the Live TV group of Newtvbox in Facebook. Sorry I am unable to post link.

    This is a Live TV apps that stream programs. TVBOX9B and MKTV either force closed itself in hardware / Software decode or is always buffering. The apps used to work nicely in 4.2.2.

    Here is the link to the 2 apps


    For your information, I have tried all configuration of the HLS without success. The only rom that works is Neomode Custom Rom Minix X5 mini Android 4.4. However this rom does not support wifi or remote control. Thanks you. and sorry for the trouble.

    I do not have an X5 mini but when I have a moment I will test the apps with my X7 and FW250.

    I have tested these apps with my U1 and they appear to function well, so I know what I am looking for and that my network does not affect the apps.

    Hi Vills,

    Thank you for testing it out. I sincerely appreciate your help.

    I'm only seeing problems with Kikat. I have downgrade the rom to 4.2.2 and the apps is working fine. Hence I'm sure something is broken in Kitkat.

    I have tried the apps with my X7 FW250, and can only confirm the same issues!

    All I can suggest is as you have gone back to JellyBean that you stay with it. Do you want KitKat for any reason?

    Hi Villa,

    Once again, thank you for your verification. I have tried both Jellybean and Kitkat on X5 Mini. The box run a lot better on Kitkat. The UL is so much smoother with little lag and apps like Kodi, YouTube etc work better too. Most important, the stability of Kitkat is so much better.

    Hi, Could you please provide a link to your kernel source tree? I'm trying to use my minix x5 mini with non-android.
