    I am using minix x8-h. I have a "shut down" problem after official firmware 006. When I wanted to shut down the device, its not working. I also tried to push manually button on the device, but nothing happen. If I leave the device, after hours still trying to close. I found the solution, to plug out. I hope it will be recover after this updated.

    I haven't been able to use youtube properly for music, it does not play next clip anymore. Apps versions and also 10.34.57, any workaround for this

    Ken and John are both at IFA in Berlin. You might need to wait another day and half

    I think they've introduced this problem for a while which I could also encounter on some other platforms.

    Hi guys... do I need to have "factory_update_param.aml" installed in the USB root directory alongside the update zip file in order to flash?

    Also, I can no longer find the backup/update built-in app... so, is the only way to flash this update via holding down the reset button while starting up?

    Cheers all.

    No, just follow the guide here - http://www.minixforum.com/threads/how-to-use-the-usb-zip-update-method-x6-x8-series.6828/
    The Backup/update app was removed to avoid confusion with the new System Update app for FOTA updates. You can use the System Update app to update OTA or follow the guide I posted above to flash using the update.zip method.

    Thanks Higgs, I'll follow the guide in that link, since the OTA app won't pick up the latest FW, constantly giving me "network connection failed".

    Hi, I've downloaded the above file .ZIP and followed the Higgs instruction to flash my X8-H but Android answer me that I can update with this file because it's made for X8-H Plus.
    Can you give me some instructions?

    P.S. Now I'll try with the release 006...

    Are you sure you have the x8-H and not the x8-h Plus?
    Did you download the file from post 1? What is the name of the downloaded file?

    Updated to 006, then to 007 successful.
    Thank you.

    Oh, I need to update to 006 before going to 007? Can't skip a release?...

    Kiwi_chris, surely no! I think that my post is relative to my issue only. Try with the release 007 before any other action. :)
