    I would like to ask Minix officials to give us a statement about release date of this firmware. It is a shame that RC2 is out for half a year and there is no progress on it. Is this called customer care? I doubt it, I think I've been waiting enough, Minix is dead for me.

    I agree. Has been sometime now with no news on this update. As if it's on the back burner now.

    Oh be quiet you drama queen. Given that officially SDK 21 and above isn't supported on the SOC that this device uses, we should think ourselves lucky we have any form of Lollipop firmware. Minix don't have to do what they have done. Besides, what exactly are you looking for in the final release that doesn't already work in RC2? If it's the audio passthrough that will never work.

    mmm..it is normal that when a release candidate is provided by an official source that following testing and bug reports a final release is forthcoming so i have some sympathy with @Jaro although he could have presented his view better . I also believe that audio passthrough does work, just not for HD audio.

    It is however very disturbing that there has been no support from any official minix members for over a month now on any subject whatever

    I'm aware what release candidates are, thanks. But given the circumstances I've already outlined regarding the SOC and SDK21, and given how well RC2 already works, comments like "Minix is dead for me" simply because there has been no final release yet are of zero help and more than a little ridiculous. And I was referring to the HD passthrough.

    Ongoing OS support on this premium Minix device by Minix has been poor in the past and now seems non existent, in my view Jaro's post was a perfectly reasonable request for information.

    I consider myself very unlucky in being taken in by the Minix hype, and wish I had never bought it.

    Well don't see any use in name calling or going on about who's a drama queen. We all have our opinion on how things are progressing. In which case there not. Would be very helpful if Minix would get involved again and let us know where they are at. Had more faith in them when Ken would be involved. As I mentioned before, seems this update has moved to the back burner. Perhaps that's it, nothing more is going to be done. They probably hope things will die down and those that own the box will forget about it. Only time will tell. Myself I'm hoping for the best.

    Everyone needs to calm down, take a deep breath and relax ! I understand people being upset and disappointed , I get it. Name calling and personal attacks will not help the situation and quite frankly why on earth are we panicking ? My Minix devices are not life and death for me ! ..... are they for you ?? Has Minix handled things properly of late? .... absolutely not ! Saying nothing says a lot. If you so choose to jump ship then so be it !

    Going forward, anymore name calling or attacks on other members will not be tolerated and will be removed as well as asking for release dates. As @Marty reminds us, the rules are clear .:)
