    Yes. But when I use that method and I try to go to flash mode. It goes straight to cwm. Or am I doing something wrong.

    Thanks guys for this incredible firmware!!!!...was about to give up in my X7 with the stock 010 firmware...this is so much better, great work and I can't say Thank you enough!!!!!!!

    I do want to add to the HDMI Bitstream issues others have spoken about in this forum....when I was on stock 010 firmware and running SPMC I could get 5.1 surround out of the HDMI port, but now with this firmware and SPMC all I get is two channel. I run my X7 into my receiver through HDMI...I have selected HDMI Bitstream from the Android setting menu not the Rockchips as it has no selection for HDMI Bitstream or Pass through....so none are selected...all left blank. I use Pass through in SPMC and enable both the DD and the DTS options. All I have been able to achieve is Stereo, mind you I have had none of the sound drop offs others have stated.

    So if anyone can get it working please post how....and if it's a known bug and being worked on by you firmware gods I will patiently await!!!

    Thanks again guys for the best firmware ever!!!

    How to modify CPU GPU DDR clocks setting (I would like overclock them)?

    In QS3 many ready OVERCLOCKS kernels were ready for use, I'm wonder if those kernels can be used in CE 2.2.0?

    P.S: I hope its a right thread to for this question :)

    So I did re-install MX player and his codecs with the same result. I undertood that I wasn't able to use HW+ decoding due to license issues on A3C and DTS (no sound). But finaly I used an old codecs version which was still supported these and now everything is fine. I just needed to use HW+ decoding!

    Hello everyone, i was wondering if anyone is having trouble trouble Setting up the QWERTZ Keyboard Layout for a logisch k400. Also i would like to mention that some pay tv apps (like Sky in Germany) are limited to only so much devices. Once you flash the minix, the dvice ID changes and you have to reset the List of reg. Devices in your Sky Account. This can only be done once every 60 days. So changing the device ID every time you flash the image sucks. Thus, making OTA updates even more important.

    We dont provide overclock kernels, sorry.
    Replacing the kernel is not easy to do on this firmware.
    Our kernel is included into the boot image, QS has a seporate kernel.
    Unless you know how to unpack the boot, convert the QSkernel to a zImage, replace the kernel and repack all it will not work.
    * Nope... i wont teach how to :D.. as i have better things to do :whistle:

    The default layout for external keyboards is QWERTY, there can just be one preset available unless we replace the keylayout and it changes for everyone. ( wich we will not do)

    hi guys,

    it is very good news to hear you that next monday new edition will be released. I hope that you could fix 1080px60 and some sounding match problem..

    thanks again..

    We will release a seporate kernel for the few people having HDMI flicker issues, the 1080i(interlace) will be gone, but the HDMI flicker is solved properly without overclocking chips like they fixed it on other roms.
    NOTE; it will be a seporate patch to apply besides the OTA for the few that are having this issue ( x7 and X7mini ).

    Hi guys,

    I cannot seem to get my minix to connect to the computer. The video speaks of the "micro usb cable provided". I've lost that. Is there a way to flash without this cable or if I can purchase this cable separately?

    Do you not have another micro USB cable you can try?

    So long as it is a data type and not a charging type, it should work. The MINIX cables have a slightly longer micro USB connector but that shouldn't matter. I have used other cables just fine.

    If its not a USB cable problem then I dont know why.. Its running finless ROM. In bootloader mode as well.

    I don't understand! If what, is not a USB cable problem? You said you have lost the cable!
  20. meanmoose

    I have micro USB cables lying around, just not the original long one that came with it. Followed the other instructions but the computer didn't recognise the minix.. I assumed that perhaps the one I'm using is too short? or if theres something special about the cable that it came with since the video mentioned that you had to use that one.
