Use that zip file with the method @Higgs suggested in the link he posted above should work.
done! thanks, the problem was in my pen.
My x6 speedtest on lan these few days has been only about 20+mb. I'm on a 500mb Internet speed. Changed wires but same results. Currently on the latest fw. I had no issues when i bought it a month ago. Only recently.
Just got my minix x6 and looking to update
Can I install update using system update
If not do u need to install all previous updates before this and if so which ones?
Looks like you currently have fw005, so you can use the System Update app to update first to fw006 then to this firmware (007A)
Thanks for the quick reply
When I select system update
New version is
Is this the right one, can't see any other updates?
Yes that's the latest one. I didn't know you could update straight to this one from fw005 (i thought you would get an update for fw006 first)
I thought the same!
The solution to your stuttering 1080p through XBMC is in the video acceleration.
Go down to bottom to settings level
Press OK repeatedly until it changes to Expert
Go up to Acceleration
Ensure that Allow hardware acceleration (amcodec) is ticked ie blue dot.
I actually found this ages ago and posted it under a thread X6 Review.
I only looked again when setting up another x6 and had the stutter problem.
Believe me, it cures it!
Once done, this is a great box!
Hi. I try to follow the video guide.
When i press the recover botton and turn on the minix i get a list of options( in the pic added).
What should i do now?
The usb burning tool is not recognize the minix. (Like its not connected).
Please your help.
Being using X6 since Feb, it was all along great until this FW007A update. This new version of Minix Metro launcher is very laggy, slow in switching between apps and occupying high RAM. Can see it in Running Apps in Android Setting - Apps. It wasn't shown for previous version. Never had issues with previous version, it was very smooth and fast.
Love the Minix Metro launcher but something needs to be done to improve the performance. Its degrading the overall performance on X6 and definitely a show stopper. No issue with Android Launcher. So using the Android Launcher for the time being till the Metro's performance is improved.
@88estuffs You're not alone my friend but I feel that the problem is not only the launcher but lies in the recent firmware updates. When I got my box in Nov14 it was lightening fast and the speed has degraded on the way.
This last update kind of killed my box. Most of the time, when I press a remote button I'd have to wait 3 seconds to see it move from one box/screen to another and this happens on any app that i use. Kodi can be even worse.
I did not bring this up as no one seems to be complaining and thought it must be something beyond my understanding as I'm not a technical person but I have flashed this firmware 3 times and it still remains laggy and slow as you mentioned.
When booting the box and going directly to Settings/Apps/Running I'm getting 631mb used and 183 free with Minix Metro. With the launcher it's 580mb used and 234 free so there's not much of a difference.
There are 7 processes running on start up - settings, settings mbox, PPPOE, 2 google play svs. Metro & keyboard - nothing out of the ordinary.
I have ended up resorting to another 45euro box which is simply so much faster than this which I had bought for 115 which does not make sense - but it's the truth.
Is there any way that I can flash this to a previous firmware to get my minix back?
Not sure that this would help but when you are in the MINIX launcher try selecting all task kiler before moving onto xbmc/kodi. It does seem to kill any tasks running in the background at start up.
We're uploading FW008 right now.

Links fixed. Thanks for the heads-up.
(@MINIX - Ken , both of these links were pointing to the X8-H Plus 007a fw. I've fixed both links.)
Any news about changelog? I'm not very sure if I want to install new firmware if you just changed some icons(example)
Thanks yellow dude~!
