Custom firmware features:

Please flash with Rockchip Batch Tool 1.7, use Restore button.

 

Please report any problem with this firmware, I can't verify this custom firmware works as I don't have a Minix Neo X5 mini device to test the custom firmware.

Results test.

Good! :)

Network - high rate (official FW:2 Mb/s, this:4 Mb/s)

WiFi - improved signal

Video FHD - played more smoothly

 

Wishes:

improve the stability of the memory DDR. Rare reboot for no reason...

Hi , First off stellar ROM loaded on few boxes already. On minix forum Strafstoms created a fix for ac3 and DTS passthrough, but it requires a root and replacement of the libmedia.so that complicated for most just wonder if this ROM could be updated to include the modified libmedia.so that Strafstoms composed then mini neo would have ac3,DTS,rooted on one ROM very easy for anyone to install that way and would have almost perfect xbmc supported ROM.  Any thoughts on if you would (or anyone else ) could compile???    Then neo 5 mini would be awesome.

You just need to download and flash the custom firmware, your device will be updated to latest Android system with the extra features listed in post #1.

Cheers.
