    Hello, i have upgraded over FOTA to FW7 and due to strange behaviour I have to perform factory reset. What bothers me now that i can't have simultaneously set screensaver and automatic sleep mode. I would like to have both options i think that was possible in FW5. Another issue is that CEC commands FastForward and Rewind in XBMC 13.3.3 minix edition do not work anymore, Controler is Sony RM-ED044 IR, TV is KDL 37EX720. If I remeber correctly In FW 5 CEC commands worked well.

    I just received a new update.

    This release was builded on the 10th of July. Any changes ?

    I can see a new icon that says VPN.

    It's 007A firmware, I will update the thread tonight.
    All previous versions will be updated to this FW007A.

    Gotham (13.3) doesn't have rewind/fast forward functions at all,
    the functions were added by Kodi team during Helix (14.x),
    your memory maybe mixed up...

    This is the Github record:
    They are since Helix: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/commit/aca6097c798609473a021a9d3342534e9993eb3f

    Ok, i'm going to try today one of this solutions. What is better?
  8. @MINIX - Ken , will this solve the automatic update issues related to the FOTA client, as the x6 is trying to update by itself without warning or anything please? All the boxes which have done FW006 to FW007 had this issue of "box is updating for ever" and to fix one has to manually force the update from the settings menu. Will FW007A sort this please? Thank you.

    Is there any problem with installing the update by USB zip and keeping the data? Or will this cause problems in the future?

    Can't i just use the zip you uploaded and put it with '--update_package=/udisk/X6-OTA-20150607.zip' in an aml. Then use the 'Update&Backup' app. The same way that 003 was flashed?

    Edit: I just tried this and it seems to work, is there any problem with doing it?

    FW007A is released because we wish all existing users to upgrade and sync to the same firmware.

    All previous versions will be updated to FW007A.

    We fully understand.
    We don't want to force users updating their device as well, provided that they are happy with it.
