Hallo , I just Try the 1080p kernel. Maybe there is on bug??

If you start the box from sleep modus, Google or the normal Mail app is not working. Is spinning all the time.  You have to reboot every time, if you want to use these Apps.

The original firmeware from MINIX has not this problem.

 

but 1080p is working fine!!!!-:)

 

I try this Image.

(1080p kernel: X5mini_20140311_1080fb.rar / X5mini_20140311_1080fb.img)

Thanks Horst

 

Edit:

Now I try the (720p kernel: NEO_X5mini_20140311.rar / X5mini_20140311.img) Image, there is no problem with Google mail and the normal mail app. After this I go back to the 1080p firmware and the mail App only working after a reboot, not after wake up from sleep modus

Hi,

 

Thanks for your work on the rom.

I have flashed my X5mini with the 720p kernel and it seems good, stable and quick.

However I have an issue where Netflix will not load videos, I can install it, log in and browse just fine, then when I try to play anything it doesn't go past the red Netflix loading page. The app doesn't crash, i can still go back and browse or exit but it wont actually play anything.

 

Going to try the 1080p version now to see if it's the same but if anyone has an idea it would be appreciated.

Update: 1080p version the same, netflix does not load videos. Going to try the latest official and see if I can get somewhere

Hey there! This is the best rom I could find for the X5mini so far...

I modified /etc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf (added my wifi passwords etc.), repacked your rom and flashed. Now it can't connect to my wifi network anymore. I think DHCP is failing.

Any ideas how this could happen or what I could have done wrong?
