Discussion in 'Official Firmware Releases' started by MINIX - Ken, Sep 30, 2015.
I do not see any download link FW005.
I did the following:
1. flash FW 004 (look "24333-new-minix-x6-stock-rom-004-02-03-in-flashable-zip-format" at freaktab forum)
2. updated through FOTA up FW 005 (20150307).
... but, imo FW008 very nice. you just have install "Top TV launcher" (very light launcher) and "Speed Up Swap (root)" (for rooting device use KingoRoot, see http://www.minixforum.com/threads/solved-3g-dongle-on-minix-x6.7184/)
any way to modify the power on scancode? If i modify the scancode in the /etc/remote.conf it only works on power off, and I still need to use the shipped remote control to power on the box. I guess it's hardcoded somehwere in the kernel. any chances to get the kernel source?
Ok, it's hardcoded in bootloader.(see my post http://freaktab.com/forum/tv-player...on-scancode-hardcoded-somewhere-in-the-kernel ) Any chance to get the bootloader sources so I can recompile them?
I've confirmed with our engineer, the X6's USB ports don't support suspend feature.
Only shutting down X6 could cut off the power completely, please kindly note.
Waiting for new coming...
any way to combine the
that's strange, because if I connect the HDD while minix x6 is in sleep mode, HDD turns iteself off after couple of minutes. but it doesn't hapend if I put minix in sleep while HDD is on.
No new firmware release...
I think this one is the final firmware release. They might focusing on newer products now and soon this will discountinued.
There will be one more update at least.
This is very good news! I hope the new firmware for Minix Neo X6 is ready soon!
I'm wishing the new firmware has latest Kodi version working OK and supporting bitstreaming AC3 & DTS through HDMI...
That are very good news. I also have a X-8 Plus and an U1. But as my X-6 was my first Minix I love it a little more than the other ones
Is also known when the new (and hopefully not the last) firmware will be rolled out?
Given there will be one more firmware release for the NexX6 (per Ken above), will that include (or support upgrading to) Android 5 (or 6)? And...is there a potential date for that release? Thanks!
Hi, i am experiencing a problem with the X8H and also the X6 boxes where the large FILMON application freezes after exactly 30 minutes when streaming the mainstream UK channels like BBC1 or ITV1 etc. This problem does not occur on the X5 or X7 series, only on the X8H and X6. It does not matter which version of FILMON you try this problem is consistent. I have tried over 20 boxes in over 10 locations and they all suffer the same problem. Is this something you are aware of? If not, is there something you can think of that is causing the freeze at 30 minute intervals? Regards Joseph Smith
I installed FILMON (from here - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.barrydrillercom.android ) on my Minix X6 (2 years old) and watching BBC 1 for more than an hour in SD, can't try HD. But it seems okay.
UPD: after 1.5h it freezed and I needed to pause/resume it. really strange, because I am wathcing youtube and netflix 24/7 without a freeze for 2 years. this can be an issue in filmon app which is using buffering in wrong way
Hi,I would like to know if there will be an update to the box minix x6 soon so we can install kodi 17?Thanks.
I too would like to know if our Minix X6's will ever receive a newer version of Android to keep them from becoming increasingly obsolete with Kodi. Unfortunately, this question has already been asked and I'd say the lack of response points to an Android update being totally out of the question as far as Minix is concerned. I don't believe there's a hardware limitation stopping this from happening with the X6. I think Minix simply want us to throw out the X6 and spend more money on a new box. That's why I'm so disappointed with them. Minix pride themselves in building a premium product, and naturally they sell them at a very premium price. The problem is that great hardware is useless without up to date software. Perhaps someone at Minix could explain to their customers why they should continue to pay three times the price for a premium product when its not going to serve them any longer than a cheaper box from one of their competitors? It seems like a bad idea to me given my experience with the X6.
I will not buy minix anymore. Slow / no update firmware. Lot of issues. Waste of money.
It is encouraging that there will be one more firmware update to iron out as many remaining bugs as possible, but it is logical that lollipop will not be implemented. I also have a Q-Box with 2gb and 16gb and for a generic S905 box, it is blazingly fast compared to the older, polished X6 which is now long in the tooth at 2.3 years old.
