    Hi Ken

    Writing this here as 007 firmware thread is locked. There is some bug which resulted in auto firmware download or made the minix think it had downloaded 007 firmware.
    I simply turned on my minix this morning and left it unattended (I did not at any point choose system update), my minix made an odd beep noise and showed "system is being updated, please wait" message. I left this for about 1.5 hrs and nothing happened, message stayed on screen. I proceed to turn off and on minix but the message keeps coming back up after about 15 secs or less, at which point it locks the box, no other activity can be done.

    Note - there was no unzip or any of the other kind of messages that are normally associated with firmware download, my minix was sitting on the launcher screen, and the message just appeared. Prior to this, my minix was in standby mode, and I had used it the night before fine. No external devices plugged in, e.g. USB stick. So not picking up the update from other source.

    After a few tries to get to the system update screen as fast as possible before the "system is being updated" message appeared, I could see that it thought it had downloaded the update, i.e. the FOTA screen showed the download screen for the 007 update and download bar was full, and bottom message was "update now".

    Eventually I had to hard reset (button + power on) and tried the update options, but it had nothing to update, so finally chose factory reset. The reset allowed me to get my minix working again and thankfully it must of removed the false update.

    At this point I chose to download and update 007, as I didn't want a repeat of the above.

    My question is, where is the actual FOTA update placed (assuming it actually did download), so it can be deleted via PC connection, just in case this happens to other boxes, as I don't want to reinstall everything for multiple boxes. Or stop the minix box thinking it has a update to install
