    Dear all NEO X6 users,

    We're pleased to release the 003 firmware.

    Firmware download link:
    MINIX Server:http://minix.com.hk/firmware/X6-OTA-20141225.rar
    Forum Server: http://www.minixforum.com/downloads/download.php?file=X6-OTA-20141225.rar
    MD5 checksum: 7C1FA8ED4E5FBD5E58DC109F312A26A4
    File size: 447,269,771 bytes

    Change log (since 002 firmware):
    Fixed various HDMI-CEC bugs, supports CEC wake-up
    Added Logitech Harmony remote NEO-X5 profile support
    Fixed Micro-SD card message bug, added safe removal feature
    Updated MINIX Metro launcher to V1.6
    Updated MINIX XBMC to beta 8 (Need to use the wipe data method, or manually installing it if you want to keep data)
    Added MX player codec (Need to use the wipe data method, or manually installing it if you want to keep data)

    Update procedures:
    1.) Download then decompress the above package and you will get two files: a .zip update package file, plus an aml parameters file; [it is not necessary to further decompress the .zip file]

    2.) Copy both files (X6-OTA-20141225.zip & factory_update_param.aml) to the ROOT directory of a FAT32 formatted USB stick, root directory means not inside of any folders;
    3.) Go to SETTINGS
    GO_SETTINGS.png
    4.) Then go to "Other", choose "System Update"
    5.) OR, alternatively, launch the UPDATE&BACKUP app directly
    GO_UPDATE&BACKUP.png
    6.) Press "Select"

    5.) Choose the "X6-OTA-20141225.zip" package from the file list, please be reminded again that BOTH the "X6-OTA-20141225.zip" & "factory_update_param.aml" files must be stored in the ROOT directory of your USB drive before proceeding
    6.) Choose "Update"
    7.) Confirm "Update", DO NOT UNPLUG THE POWER OR THE USB DRIVE during the whole process
    8.) System will reboot itself and continue the rests of the process, it shall take about 5 minutes and once update is complete it shall boot into the system again. First boot will be slower than normal because of background app installations.

    P.S. Edit the included aml file in the package with notepad, add 2 more lines if you want to wipe everything clean:
    --wipe_data
    --wipe_cache

    --update_package=/udisk/X6-OTA-20141225.zip

    And if you want to use Micro SD card instead of USB drive to update,
    simply edit the word "udisk" to "sdcard". (FAT32 formatted only)

    Regards,
    Team MINIX.

    Official 003 firmware is released mainly because of the following reason:

    Our original, dedicated OTA update server for Amlogic-based products is under severe DDOS attack,
    to encounter that we have deployed a new "FOTA" service contracted with ADPUS with Amazon mirror servers worldwide:
    http://mg.adups.cn/adups/cooperate_en.html
    All future OTA updates will be delivered through this new ADPUS FOTA service and will be of differential packages (smaller files, faster updating).

    Please note that this 003 firmware will be the 1st firmware deploying the new FOTA service.
    All future updates will be based on this firmware version.

    Thanks.

    Regards,
    Team MINIX.

    Hi Where do we download the factory_update_param.aml file and is there 2 versions of the file to keep your existing data or a clean install? Regards Joseph

    The .aml is in the RAR file you download.
    Read the installation instructions carefully, it answers your other question

    Hi Ken,

    The Link itself downloads the file NEO_X6_002_FW.zip is this correct as the file is from 15/11/2014, also one file is included in the zip package ?
    see:

    D:\Data\MINIX\ROMS>unzip -l NEO_X6_002_FW.zip
    Archive: NEO_X6_002_FW.zip
    Length Date Time Name

    Edit the aml file in the package, add 2 more lines if you want to wipe clean:

    Keep data:
    --update_package=/udisk/X6-OTA-20141225.zip

    Wipe data:
    --wipe_data
    --wipe_cache

    --update_package=/udisk/X6-OTA-20141225.zip

    Or if you want to upgrade using Micro SD card instead:

    Keep data:
    --update_package=/sdcard/X6-OTA-20141225.zip

    Wipe data:
    --wipe_data
    --wipe_cache
    --update_package=/sdcard/X6-OTA-20141225.zip

    These are just very simple scripts... :)

    Just now installed the new firmware ... but my problem remains the same. When the frequency goes to 1080p 24Hz amplifier yamaha rx-V465 goes crazy and the audio is choppy. I have the same problem if I set the resolution to 480. If I put it to 1080p 60hz all goes well. I still think that is incompatible port hdmi 1.3 on my amp with port hdmi 1.4 of minix.

    Have you tried manually selecting "HDMI passthrough" opton?
    Does it happen to all files or some particular videos?
    2:21 am here, will check your message again in the morning.
