    Download link:

    People that run the current Community edition firmware (2.1.0+) will recieve an OTA update online.
    You dont have to flash this firmware!

    (You need to use RK flashtool, do not try to flash it like an OTA update.zip !)

    *****************Make sure to reboot once after the Upgrade!*****************

    Available Updates:
    Kitkat CE - root update
    Kitkat CE - unroot update

    HDMI flicker patch: http://www.minixforum.com/downloads/download.php?file=X7-CE-HDMI-FlickerPatch.zip
    NOTE: this is not for everyone!, just for the few that have incompatable TV's and have screen flicker at 1080p60/50

    To install the available updates (this is not for the Firmware!) rename the downloaded file to update.zip and place at the internal flash drive root, android will find the update and request you to install.

    From the MINIX Forum Developers Team;


    Also thanks to the MINIX Engineers, without them we would not come this far!

    Hello! Applied the 506Mb update with HLS app control, unfortunately Skyonline is not working (the same as before the upgrade, no good news ). Infinity TV is working as before, i.e. image shrinked not filling screen neither horizontally, nor vertically.

    Updated without any problems and working fine, except my Logitech V470 Cordless Laser Mouse for Bluetooth. It's detected by the system but unable to work with it.
    Help please because without any mouse I am lost. I have a microsoft keyboard and it works perfectly.
    Many thanks for all.

    You have to have ar least CE 2.1.0 to get OTA.. Otherwise you need to flash the firmware manualy by flashtool.

    Then the OTA will be pushed soon.
    Note; we can not push to 20.000 users(over 10 TB data) at the same time ( the server will probably die lol )
    There is bandwith managment in place so please be patiant.
