NEO X5 latest firmware (20130520, version 011)

    2 questions: 1. Is this rooted? 2. Since 99% of my use of X5 is XBMC, should I bother with this update? I currently use the XAF XBMC which uses external player because all the versions with internal player work poorly for me (yes even the 02/19 version).

    Update then set your external player to the built in RockChip player, it works brilliantly now!
  6. Any hint how to set external player to the built RockChip player?

    But I will still be using an external player? No progress made with using built in xbmc player?

    Ahhh good question, I will look into it as I have not done it myself. 95% of my videos are 720p so I have only used XBMC libstagefright version

    There is work being done by RockChip (its because of them XBMC doesnt work properly not Minix) however I dont think its totally fixed yet

    Should really ask xbmc about their internal player...

    To make it fair, XBMC needs to improve the support across different hardware platform as well. Right now only one platform works really well.

    Ok, that's very interesting, where is best to contact you to discuss?

    Thanks

    Because they pay :p
    I'm sure if RockChip wanted to "support" XBMC like Pivos do then XBMC would work perfect in a matter of weeks

    Might do this tonight. The new firmware. Just a pain installing all the apps all over again.

    Can we root this using the same way with the previous (NEO_X5_4.1.1_20130326) one?

    I sure hope it doesn't skip anymore.. can't even play 320kbps mp3's without skipping. Or the constant freezing, it's doing my head in! I'm at my wits end with this box. Hate having to re-connect my boxee box. Albeit that did work superbly and audio en video synced as nothing I've ever owned before.

    So is XBMC still buggered with 'Player Active' issue. Someone mentioned use the rockchip default player. Where in gods earth do you set this? XBMC, X5 settings?

    OK, by pressing c when the list of streams comes up it allows you to then select a player. But still no joy. Does anyone have a link to the version of XBMC that did work with live streams?

    Until the android source code will be stuffed from parts of extraneous code, such as the server part of rkremote, android roms will never work well.

    This part heavily ruin the window manager.

    Can we have a rom without this part inside to compare ?

    Hello.
    Thanks for update, it's great.

    There is still problems with touch emulation in games. For example, Wind-up Knight.
    When I use MINIX A1 remote or BT mouse in it's doesn't respond on clicks. But when I use RockChip remote, it's respond on my clicks even in mouse mode.
