U9-H-CE FW001 Android 7.1.2 20191120 [Community Edition Nougat Firmware]

The U9-H-CE FW001 is running smoothly on my device. So far, I have just had a couple of minor issues:

1) I have noticed significant delay in audio when using bluetooth earbuds. Is is just me?

2) In the Android settings menus, in order to scroll with the scroll wheel (I use a wireless mouse), first I have to click anywhere on the screen and then scroll.

Thanks!
 
Hi again,

I have spotted a bug.

In Android settings, if I set the language to Spanish (Spain) and then click on Display, I get the “Settings has stopped working” error message.

Thx

That happens without the Spanish bit for me, using Display crashes the setting app.
 
I do only use HDMI, and I had sound before I burned this new fw. Nothing changed on my TV, I connected for test an older Minix X8-h with same HDMI and sound worked.

Found how to clear cache, didn't help.
No sound in Youtube or any other app.

Will try to burn again, should I use "Erase all" option in USB burning tool?
And maybe enable "Reset after success"?

How do you clear the cache?
 
Where is the download link for the community firmware? I have 2 U9h and they are crashing daily just trying use Plex on my local network . I want to test this firmware and hoping for different results.

By all means try the CE ROM out on one of your U9-H's to see if it brings you any improvement regarding the problem you're having :).

Having said that, despite its length I'd also strongly advise that you read through all of the posts under this thread before you proceed!! Yes, that may take you 15 - 20 minutes, but IMHO that's essentially all you'll lose for the knowledge potentially gained. What's more, it could save you additional time & grief if you discover some information here that could potentially make this particular ROM unsuitable for your requirements. (Some may get an improvement while others may actually lose certain functions or features & it is highly subjective based on individual setups etc..)

Personally, I'd exhaust all possible options with trying to identify the root cause of this instability first before trying another ROM.

The U9-H is very well known for its rock solid stability with the stock FW008 firmware & many users can literally go for weeks or even months without having to reboot their devices at all. My point being, for you to be experiencing these mysterious crashes on a daily basis it's obviously a subjective issue & I'd exhaust all avenues of investigation to remedy the problem first rather than arbitrarily flashing to different firmware.

If you've already done all of this & you're still completely stuck without a resolution, fair enough, give it a whirl ;).

Ultimately, it's entirely up to you :). Just some food for thought before you went ahead & possibly experience a new set if problems instead, that's all. Hope you can resolve your problem with the absolute minimum of fuss whichever way you do choose to go :).

In addition to what @ArcticWolf has posted I would add the following.

AS you say this is happening on both your U9h's I would suspect the issue is elswhere, either with your plex server/network, or whatever app or kodi addon you are using to acces your plex server. Or, something else on your U9 is causing conflict

The U9h is pretty much rock solid on FW008 so i doubt very much that the CE ROM will be of any benefit.

If you were thinking of going to the CE Rom you would be prepared to have to reinstall all your apps and settings, so before doing that I would try a factory reset of the U9, where you will also lose all your apps and settings.
 
Way too much work. Freezes at the splash screen or the "Android is starting apps" screen. It stopped working sometime in Jan. Has been sitting collecting dust. Decided to waste yet another Saturday. Followed all the possible solutions. Nothing. Waste of 175 bucks. I see many of you have time to dither around trying to fix these things. I don't. I have a life. I read one guy spent "day after day after day" trying to resolve his Issues. Nope. In the trash it goes. I'm done. Not at all happy with MINIX.
Completely agree with you.
Waste money with this MINIX.
Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Now TV, Disney Plus can't play in high resolution (1080p stay a dream with minix).
You can use just Kodi with your Minix.
For less then 50 Euro I could have bought an Android TV/ BOX TV widevine L1 (play video with 4k HDR resolution) and enjoy my official streaming account.

Can anyone play Amazon Video at 1080p?
Can anyone play Netfilx at 1080p or higher?
Can anyone play Disney Plus at 1080p or higher?
Can anyone play Now TV at 1080p or higer?

The answer is easy...NO
So WASTE MONEY (150 Euro with A2 remote controller)

You Can have with Kodi/coreelec and DRM L1
Amazon = 1080p
Netflix = 1080p
Disney + =4k
-----------
You Can also have with normal AP from store if you payed :
Molotov TV = 1080p/ 720p if not client
Canal + = 1080p/ 720p if not client
-------------------
For the specs of the u9h
It is octa core 2,02ghz x8
Go try box for 50€ with quad core 1,5ghz x4 or lower fréquences
