    MINIX Forum "Community Edition" Kitkat 4.4.2 for X5mini

    - You need to manually flash this firmware with the USB Flashtool
    - All the tools will be provided in the download .zip file.

    The future of CE;
    This is not really a CE release anymore.
    This firmware is build as an "Official MINIX" release, so it has all proper MINIX logo's and background.
    The reason we release it under "custom roms" is because MINIX has to approve it first.
    Hopefully we can copy this topic to Official section soon. ( or we might do that on next release )

    - Removed 1080i From HDMI mode in X5 Series Branch (not supported in Rk3066 devices)
    - Fixed Camera Drivers/Brightness (during test all used Cameras were detected)
    - Fixed Spdiff pasthrough
    - Huge HLS revision

    - rk3066 random mac fix
    - sleep suspend fixed( wakeup from USB Remotes / IR remote / Powerbutton )
    - fully renewed audio bitstream system + audio input fix ( show usb audio input devices )
    - Screen settings all on one page
    - additional VPN/networking config ( IPIP,L2TP,PPP )
    - removed PIN for VPN settings
    - VPN wifi hotspot fix
    - Removed google searchbar from desktop
    - long press menukey to hide/unhide systembar
    - recovery show UI + Null pointer fix
    - USB storage announcements framework renewed
    - wifidisplay / miracast HDCP key integration ( not functional yet )
    - libffmpeg and RKffplayer updated to version 8-12
    - fixed RKexplore app
    - fixed WifiDisplay app
    - Small HLS fix ( not much yet )
    - Updated Gapps ( Google Apps )
    - Google sync issues fixed
    - new kernel logo
    - etc.

    Download link:

    (You need to use RK flashtool, do not try to flash it like an OTA update.zip !)

    Available Updates:
    Kitkat CE - root update
    Kitkat CE - unroot update
    Kitkat CE - 1080p update (only for x5 series)

    To install the available updates (this is not for the Firmware!) rename the downloaded file to update.zip and place at the internal flash drive root or USB stick root, android will find the update and request you to install.

    From the MINIX Forum Developers Team;


    Also thanks to the MINIX Engineers, without them we would not come this far!

    Not to forget our small Test Crew who tested the X5 Series: @Joao, @braliao, @Harps, @tzar34, @Sneeuwgors, @kalhimeo and @toto le heros. Guys many thanks!

  12. Let me just get one thing straight. This is a 720p, non rooted version right?
  13. KAR

    KAR Developer Super Moderator

    Yes correct, and when you use the 1080p update it will be 1080p (unrooted)
