Slimbox OS for MINIX NEO U22-XJ

#41
Many thanks. Will go through all the posts again to make sure I do it properly. Just trying to find the idiots guide and step by step instructions.
If you want to try (or already tested) one custom ROM you need to reflash the device (via manual installation).

There is not available OTA updates for the custom ROMS (or at least the ROMS that i already tested), only with the official MINIX firmware (non rooted).

To revert from custom firmware to MINIX firmware you need to flash the device again.

Instructions here - manual installation:

Or you can use the Burncard Maker Method.

Though you still need a PC to run the Burncard Maker! ;)

I dont found how to make screenshots so take pictures...
Press and hold the Remote Power Button and a Menu will pop up on the right.

Now move down to Screenshot and select.

Images stored in Pictures/Screenshots

When you select Attach files at the bottom of your post, select Files and Recent should appear and you should be able to select the screenshots.

Yes i found it like i say in "résumé" post ,but this is not good place for it ,you Can not make screenshots from all you want , because you need to open power menu and so you Can not open some other things /menus for make a screenshot....
The best place for screenshot Button is in the bar ...so you can make screenshots from what you want....
As is sée you instal thé rom for test 😉

When you take screenshots you have all Time the power menu open on the screen ,looks not nice and some Time you not see what is writen under ....when you have the Button in the bar you have not the complet power menu on the screen...
Nooo! The popup menu is not shown in the screenshot!

That's why I had to take a photo for my post above!!! ;)

If you'd tried it already you would know. :)

@Villa, your first impressions about this Rom ??
Back in January, I actually tried both versions of Slimbox when it first appeared in the Forum to check if they were legit.

I remember saying this, "I've tried both the ROMs and they appear to function well."
You will not have seen this as it was in a private area!

I haven't tested it extensively though.

Now it appears there are different developers of the Slimbox ROMs. Not sure what that's about?! :unsure:

Anyway, I have flashed the current one posted by @ries to check if the screenshot option was the same as other ROMs before I could tell you how to perform a screenshot with this ROM.
I didn't see this...
PS : i found thé screenshot Button now 😂he is in the power "section" not realy good place for it..
I will now have a play with this U22-XJ and this ROM.

What I did initially find is the Soul browser appears to be totally useless as navigation with a remote just doesn't work.
I will be installing Chrome v57.
