    This firmware will take to much time to release. I think this would be latest firmware for x7. Because minix stopped to sell x7.. :(

    Maybe this will be the last firmware for the x7, but I personally think a 100% working firmware will positively influence peoples future decision to purchase MINIX brand.

    Are you still looking for beta testers..

    I'm getting really frustrated with kodi passthrough because with the stock 13.3 xbmc I was able to run dts and dd without any issues. Any other version of kodi the audio cut for millisecond every 5 seconds.

    I've tried just about every combination of Rom and kodi.

    I need kodi 15 and would rather run 1 rather than 2 version.

    I have 2 minix X7 so I can test any file you needed.

    Thanks

    There are still a few bugs to resolve that we did not expect.

    Since no word from the team on this subject anymore and people getting inpatient which I can understand as there is no progress being reported in any form.

    So looks like I'm going to ditch this box and find one that does work with spdif pass-through. Which is a shame as it was coming along so nicely.

    Anyway thanks for all support and effort on this forum!

    Are you sticking with minix or broadening horizons. I still have my X7, upgrading to kitkat was a killer but I am relatively happy. Booting ubuntu from sd is ok but I just want stability within Android.

    I am not in a position to make promises, but I know that part of the development team is having a holiday and the decision was not to release 250 until their return.
    I would assume that it will be released very soon!

    If you're having audio breaks with spdif pass-through I suggest that you download the 15.0 version of SPMC from here (it's based on kodi 15.0):

    https://github.com/koying/SPMC/releases

    spmc-armeabi-v7a_15.0.0.apk


    It's from 25 July 2015 and it works good for me, although I haven't done any extensive testing.

    PS: You can install this version and keep the other xbmc versions installed you you want to.

    Not sure if it has been covered but windows 10 driver's would be a bonus. I was frequently trying different roms but since updating to 10 my rom is the same. I want to come back to og minix.

    Thanks Villa.
    I shall await and if kitkat 250 is released then dive in. Im sure it's going to be the best for X7.

    Cheers Villa!

    That is something we can understand, I would not have my holiday ruined as well ;-)

    It is always good to share something like a status as we can make or own plans accordingly

    Not sure yet, there seems to be some issues with the X8 as well but I'm considering to give that a try.....

    Been there done it etc. but too much effort to switch from one to another... I decided to stay with the original i.e. Kodi as that is were the development will be in the future..

    of course, I am very concerned about this vulnerability but also for the leaks involving the stagefright library.
    Hopefully with the elusive version 250 it is all fixed.

    Hi devs, thanks a lot for your work. I would like to beta test. I have a problem with: 'www.telecinco.es/endirecto'. Roughly only 1 of each 5 times I try to get the image I can see it, otherwise only audio and black screen. It's very annoying. I have official firmware 240. I have tested with Chrome (as described above) and Firefox (which just always displays an error). With lollipop or marshmallow on other devices the site always works fine.

    It seems that setting use overlay to 0 in the prop file helps. I have just rooted today to try this, otherwise the problem presents on a clean 240 system.

    Please keep us updated to the progress towards release 250. Thanks a lot.
