    Agree. This is the best firmware ever. It is even better than 720p version, although it was supposed to be the same.

    all files on our FTP have been deleted by someone, have to upload all over again.
    Congratulations! I wish the guy, whoever did this, would die of a horrible car accident.

    Hi, I followed your instructions to install xbmc+mx player 177 and it works quite good but I have a questions: is there any setting to select mx player as default or how do I make them work together?

    From another forum I found that current builds of xaf will automatically use the mx player as default (I can't remember which forum it is). In case it ask for video player, chose mx player. Since you got it working, I think xbmc is using mx player by default.

    ALWAYZBLESS , Thanks for reply. I got your msg after going to the Minix office to have a check. And the truth was that, after the investigation by the technician at Minix, the original USB cable problem was found to be broken near the plug (I was just like jackie-chan-WTF-meme at that time haa). I had thought that may be the problem of the cable, but I was not careful enough that I only test it to see if it was able to charge up my phone + It was really a brand new cable taken out from the box. I should be more aware of this next time.

    MINIX , I did went to the Kowloon Bay office, and the staff there was really nice and helpful to explain and demonstrate wht was going on with my X5 and the cable. Thank you very much.

    My X5 is now upgraded ("restore" I mean) to the 1117 1080P fireware and works like a charm, I am really satisfy with this and is going to explore more on this device.

    Hi, thanks for your help, confirmed that xbmc started using mx player since I first chose it.

    Wow 1080p is pretty. This firmware works pretty good for me.

    Even xbmc from xbmc-android (http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-android/downloads/list) and Mx player. I am able to stream remote video. Choppy a bit @ 720p and 1080p, at least some streams. Might be a network speed issue though and buffering. But still very usable for most sources. Menus sure seem snappy.

    this firmware has low performance, unusable for playing.

    The Minix firmwares are not rooted. If you want to root, check out my root thread in the development section, Do Not use the one that is stickied, that one does not push all the files.

    Hi all, I have just upgraded "restored" to the 1080 firmware, I have noticed that since this the whole OS seems to be very very slow, even when clicking mouse buttons it can take a good few seconds to catch up, Is anyone else seeing this or know what the cause of this is??
    Thanks in advance!

    Honestly for me, I have no problems other than the usual limitations of Android.

    I'm using 1080p firmware since it was released by minix. All I did, was rooted and removed unneeded Chinese apps. It is working for me stable without any problems. I think most problems are related to the TV (monitor) it is connected to. If it has full 1080p support, no problems exist.

    I just buahgt an x5 and when u go to install this firmware it rkbatch formats it then downloads the firmware to the device. when it reaches 25% it failes and the icon goes red.... do I have to root my x5?
  23. Edisoft

    Edisoft Member

    As I understand you are trying to update firmware. What button in rkbatchtool do you use to update firmware: upgrade or restore?
    Root has nothing to do with firmware updating and wont help you at all.

    I fixed it....the connection for the usb was loose

    Thanks for your help
