FW 130905 freezes my device

Postby Madbyte » Thu Sep 19, 2013 12:24 am

Hi,

I updated to the new FW 130905 (XBMC reports: 1920x1032@34/36 fps.) But it randomly freeze my device, so I'm reveting back to the old FW.

And the following is a personal opinion: In this last FW all the things are too small, icons, text, gadgets, bars, this device is intented to be used like an entertainment center connected to a TV which is seen from a distance, not close like a PC monitor or tablet.

Regards.

I had my device bricked while I was downgrading, so I had to open it and short 8-9 nand flash pins before power up (I attached a pic with those pins remarked if someone else need to do the same with this new hardware). After that the device was detected again but the Recovery gave me an Download IDB Fail, finally my device came to life again after doing a Clear and retrying the Restore process.

discuss the same in another post.......
I tried the update, and I do not like how it works. is unstable, and the letters of the menu in the largest size, are tiny, hurts my eyes. I have to get too close to read I'm writing

comente lo mismo en otro post .........
probé esa actualización, y no me gusto como funciona. es inestable, y con las letras del menú en el tamaño mas grande, son diminutas, me lastima los ojos. tengo que acercarme mucho para leer que estoy escribiendo

I could not agree more. The 0509 fw seems to have been made by a computing student in his first year.

It is slow, unstable...i dont get it how they even dare to release it.

Anyway, I take this device as what it is. A lab attempt. I can do some things with it, but it underdelivers significantly in relation to its advertised capabilities.

Luckily for me i had low expectations, and for basic web browsing and 720 video playing it does the job (just about though).

Thank you, but it did not work, too.

No problem, devil wanted my device for himself.

I think that I found the best android box:
