    For those who want to try before you buy, here is a way with pictures to get Lollipop onto your X8-H Plus before Minix release their official one:

    As always, do so at your own risk, read the instructions carefully to see what is not working on the ROM and also to prepare yourself for the worst, I would suggest reading it a few times just to be on the safe side and then crack on if you feel up to it.

    I have been running this on both my X8-H Plus boxes for over a year now so it works for me but it might not be everyone's cup of tea so no b*tching if it isn't, no one is forcing you.

    Have fun!!

    P.S if everything goes wrong then I would suggest flashing with this stock ROM to get back to Minix firmware, it has helped me out loads of times:

    As you are already running this build could you just confirm if you can run clash of clans (and playing for more than few minutes) and YouTube streaming at 1080p, both smoothly.

    I can tell you now that the video on YouTube at 1080p will freeze after 20 seconds or so, this is an X8-H Plus limitation that Ken has already explained. Clash of Clans I'll get my lad to test for you, I'm no good at gaming outside of the PS4 I'm afraid

    Edit: 10 mins of Clash of Clans, no problems

    never heard that before, is it fps dropping? Any issue with 720p? I would be glad if I get the Ken explanation link.

    Try going to step 2 in the instructions and do the TWRP flash, if it still hangs then boot into recovery, for this ROM you need to hold power and the recovery for about 25 seconds, wipe the cache then select boot to bootloader.

    I did this a few months ago. I started with Adbul's firmware with TWRP and then followed Marty's guide. It mostly works, but still waiting for the Minix lollipop.

    it wasn't necessary actually, powering up while holding down "power button" for few seconds took me to android logo and jumped to Home Screen. Glad that it has appeared finally. Much appreciate for your work. WiFi looks quite good ... no leg. thanks Marty.
