did you read the third post?
Yes, I read it, followed the instructions but I'm getting an error that says: E: Footer is wrong
I was referring to your question on where to download the USB update.zip from...
Which method did you use? And we are probably off-topic, maybe you should create a new thread about it...
Yes, I downloaded the correct zip file that you recommended, I used the SD card method and everything was working properly, then I got the error, it appears in other posts that you have to use the earlier FW versions, like 002 before you can use 005....?
I am not sure, never used the SD card method, I always use the burning tool method
I have to use the SD method because I have a mac, is the OTA working now once I upgrade the FW to 002?
My current FW is KOT49H.20140529 test-keys
Followed to the T, works fine, then during the process I get the same error....
Can you install this FW over 002a or do you need to install all of the previous FW versions prior to 005?
how do i get the update&back up app? it no longer there.
Download the v005 USB update.zip package...
...then follow the instructions here...
...only ignore the part...
"Firmware package Then, download the update.zip OTA package from:"
I did about 3 updates and finally this one is it me or is it all in my head that the playback with Mkv files are much more smooth now on my ledtv?? =)
BUGS LOCATED ....
Media center will not stream. Keeps saying no media device found.. When im using Kodi I can steam from my desktop 100% of the time..
2nd bug... When you put in a Thumb drive and watch a movie after pulling the TD out and replacing it with a different TD it still shows the contents of the 1st TB it will not refresh. I have to reboot for it to see the content of the different TD.. I have reproduce this bug every time I change the TD after watching a movie.
I have a small 16.67mb file to update but keeps coming back with network connection failed. I know its not on my end. So after clicking the button ea time it stops im @ 65%. After it d/l a small chunk of data it fails connection. Defiantly a issue with the server dropping the connection. its stuck @65% right now. I don't trust the integrity of the data so will tray another time..
Ok guys! I did the manual update with a Fat32 formatted SD card, you have to format the SD card on a Windows machine, a Mac will format it however the SD card will not work, the Mac Fat32 structure must differ from Windows because I kept receiving the "No Footer" Error on the Minix when using the Mac formatted SD card. Once I installed FW 002a, I then connected my Minix to a Cat5 cable to my network router, I then ran the Minix OTA update app and received all FW updates all the way to the current one released in May 2015.
I hope this info helps, I know it helped me to avoid using all the burn tools and manual FW update methods!
I have a Neo-X8-H with Build Number KOT49H.201440722 test-keys running .
How do i upgrade to the latest firmware (005). I have never used the FOTA as well.
Did you not read my post?
You could have used the v005 update.zip package and skipped the FOTA updates!
Thanks this helped for a smooth installation.
Didn't really make any difference I still needed to install FW wether it be via USB or SD card, the FOTA updates were fairly quick so I didn't have to spend much time on it.
