    Hello, maybe strange question but, actually my minix X7 mini is runing with the last firmware (not kitkat) and Kodi 14.2 very well. My question is what are the new features of this Kitkat firmware and how to upgrade without loosing all my data (games etc..)
    Thanks to all.

    @up: it's not possible. By manually updating you lose everything.

    Hi guys,

    I've been pulling my hair all day trying to modify the gunfone root update.zip to install some of my apps and uninstall XBMC, and I keep getting "not a valid update package'. The message doesn't have caps or anything, so I'm wondering if it's stock android or something in this ROM. Is there a specific cert to use to sign the update.zip or something ?

    I'm very simply trying to root the device and at the same time clean a bit my apps. The rooting works perfectly with the original update.zip but I can't add anything in it. I've tried on mac and PC, with SignApk or through mucommander changing the zip on the fly... I'm starting to bang my head on the wall.

    Thanks !

    You can not sign the zip without proper certificate wich we will not release.

    Hello Community,

    the update is now out for several weeks - is it worth an update or better stay with the old firmware if I have no problems?
    What is your expirience?

    Thank you very much!

    It is unstable for me. Makes random reboots and is therefore unusable for some of my purpose.

    If you don't experience these reboots, the release is quite decent.

    I don't know why this release causes reboots for me. I have tried many things to isolate the issue but without luck.

    The latest official release made by Minix is stable, though, so something in this release is acting up.

    Could be a hardware fault, but how can I know?

    HardwareGuru, is there any way to get to sign one update.zip (send you the content somewhere)?

    I'm going to put this rom on a dozen boxes for an art exhibit and removing stock apps/installing my app on all of them is a serious pain hehe. The ROM is awesome for everything else though.

    Just use adb and a batch script to easely install everything you need. I dont have time to sign zipfiles.. Sorry.
