    Please if you can try to fix the problem mentioned here http://www.minixforum.com/threads/external-hdd-not-powering-off-while-minix-x6-is-in-standby.10101/
    Sometimes when powerin on from standby TV says "no signal" but blue light is on (need to press power off and then power on in again, sometimes needs to be done 2 -3 times) but I guess it's a hw issue, nothing really important but would be nice if it can be fixed. (tried on two different TVs and two different x6 boxes) I could not find which causes this, so I guess it's totally random.

    If there are great things and improvements made to X8H Plus and U1, it would also be nice to receive them in X6. :)

    I was thinking if its possible to include a shortcut command on rc for screenshot, similar to what we could do on our smart phone. Maybe a long press of "OK+Power" buttons?

    We have done a flash install and the free RAM isn't that low.
    I think some apps installed on top of it eats up the RAM.

    Hi Ken,
    I have problem with very slow system (mostly web browsing, youtube), lagging and crashing applications. I tried Factory reset, but this didnt help.
    I bought X6 for my father instead of old Rikomagic IIIS (because I am very satisfied with my X8H) , but the performance of fathers X6 is worse than old Rikomagic...
    I believe, it is not normal state - can I make something as clean flash ROM, or... ?

    ... @phone...

    Found a new bug, I don't know if it's minix or kodi bug. When using Kodi from google play, sleep doesn't work at all. Either pressing the power button on remote, or long pressing and choosing "Sleep" from the popup menu.

    Pls realase new build. I think you can remove some google apps such as: Google+, Gmail, maps... and If anyone need, they can download from google play.

    I'm really sure it's some installed by you apps makes the system slow. I have one rooted minix x6 and one non rooted box. on the rooted one I disabled almost everything and have around 300mb free on system boot, on non-rooted box I have around 280mb free ram on system boot. It's not the apps for sure. My father is using non rooted box and it's all okay with speed. But any way, this would be a good thing to delete these apps, but I guess minix have some agreetment with google so they could not delete google apps.

    Which firmware your father used on his box?
  18. artouiros

    I upgraded his box to 008 via FOTA (recieved the box some days after 008 release), he is using the box for 5 month without any issue. Try to remove miracast/dlna apps (they can be removed), also I removed es file explorer. I did this jsut because he don't really need any of these, but I guess it gave some speed improvement
