I followed it and I was able to flash android 5 successfully to my X8-H. I have sound, latest kodi, wifi works. The only annoying this is that CEC is not enabled on startup. So after every boot you have to go to settings and enable CEC. If somebody has a fix for that, please let me know.

Some people say that sound does not work. The fix is to enable developer mode (click about 5 times), go into developer settings and disable usb audio.

After flashing, the first boot takes about 5 minutes.


The tutorial
Use this Firmware to update.

I just flashed PROBOX2 EX+ (PLUS) 20161221 (5th firmware release) fw to my Minix X8-H ( NOT THE PLUS version )
http://probox2.com/probox2-ex-plus-2...mware-release/
( all instructions + files there ).
Minix X8-H box came up after 6 min.

Tested now WIFI + USB > Works well

There is also Hebrew language... LOL

After the flashing , the IR remote won't work.
In order to fix it, extract the attached file ( remote.conf ) to that folder ( \system\etc ) and reboot.
