    First, thanks for the great effort on this FW, much appreciated (y)

    I installed this FW yesterday and am experiencing the same problem as Adrian (post #117) and Gostlo (post #134)

    Was this ever solved or fixed? I can't seem to find the answer on this thread.

    Many thanks.

    Is it possible to add "mount/unmont or safely remove usb/hdd drive" options in Settings\storage in your next release? or is there any other way to do so?

    Can the common user resize those partition if so how?
    The nandflash partition gets all the the poster images etc for XBMC movies and TV shows art. A partiton with a couple of GB bigger would be appreciated, when this partition gets close to being full it creates problem I have experience shows/movies terminating before the end etc...

    While the app data partition runs almost empty....
    Or is there a way to get XBMC to save all those arts in the app data partition?

    Just about a week ago amazon updated its amazon DE app (German version) via google Play. Once i installed the update, i went on and reinstalled the prime instant video app via amazon apps and tada... It actually works! But, and here comes the bad news, the quality is nowhere near the amazon Fire TV, the built in amazon instant video app of an LG smart TV or the browser (on a Windows PC). The videos play in low quality, even though its HD material, and the UI is a pain in the butt (purely a matter of personal taste). I really don't know why it didn't work with the ROM's i tried before (Finless, Quickshot, HardwareGuru 5.0, wasser, ...). Since it seems to work "fine" after the amazon DE update, it might have been an amazon related issue. The bottom line is that it finally runs on an x7 but there are a lot of other problems with this device AND the next generations (X8) while minix is announcing/releasing one product after another (z64, ...) without really fixing the previous ones. On the other hand, progress is slow and there are still some problems, but at least it seems that we are movin' in the right direction...

    So thank you Hardware Guru, kar, Gufone and all the other devs who are working hard so that we can one day get our money's worth... keep up the great work guys!

    any ETA of next update for this excellent ROM ?

    No, it will not be possible to easily resize the partitions. Some people needing big data partition and small SD and other exactly the opposite, so we have chosen 8GB...

    Hello Gufone, thank you for the updates. Do you know whether the HLS issues have been identified / resolved with streaming on Hulu Plus as it doesn't work, just get a black screen, sound is okay though? Thanks

    my NET TV PLUS (exyu) didn't work under 4.2.2 . After patching HLS it worked, but only when using MPEG 2.
    M3U8 doesn't work at all.
    With the KitKat Installation NET TV PLUS won't work too.
    HLS patch(update.zip) doesn't work under the 4.4.2 version.

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    I tried to change the settings but I did not resolve.

    This problem I always had it with all Firmwares

    Have a Panasonic 42" plasma myself and no issue at All.

    There is a tool available in the playstore (can't remember the name) to change the contrast.
