  • Finless X8-H Plus Lillipop ROM 1.0


    Doing refresh ROMs for all my Minix boxes.

    This ROM is based off the Minix Lollipop ROM beta RC2 with the tweaks I did to make my U1 Super Fast ROM.

    I am not going to say a lot about it but here are the features.
    It's Pre-rooted but after first boot you need to run the Superuser APP as it needs to run at least once before using rooted APPS. Even though I updated the SU binary in the ROM, the SU APP still says it needs to do that.

    It's totally debloated! And I mean DEBLOATED! I did this to have this box just be for playing videos, KODI, etc. For me it runs Kodi 17.x great!

    I did some other tweaks for memory and video performance. Kind of my usual tweaks I have always done like on the U1.

    This is a IMG and flashed via the USB Flash Tool.
    Do not ask for a update.zip as I just do not have time to do it. The new ZIP architecture is a PITA and takes a lot of time which I do not have.

    Here is the download link:

    Enjoy,

    Yeah finally

    Edit:
    Everything is working, ROM is fast and smooth.

    I have two issues maybe someone can test and confirm:
    1:
    If Amazon underground apk is installed, android settings apk doesnt works/starts as soon the Amazon underground is uninstalled i have access to the android settings, tested twice.

    2:
    Amazon prime Music doesnt works, Error 181 "check system time" or something like this, system time is correct but app still doesnt works.

    Thank you for the update

      Hi, would this work on a Wetek Core? Looks like it's the same hardware, only with 8GB eMMC.

      Thank you!

                At first I want to say thanks a lot for this work! It's running really smooth and stable. I flashed it with a Sd card because the flashing tool wasn't working for me. But no problem!
                Only some small things I found :
                - Notifications not working on Homescreens. I have to open an app (doesn't matter witch on) to throw it down. It seems that Statusbar isn't working properly, no clock, no network icon and no notifications ticker. Is there a workaround for?
                I tried to change something in Nova Launcher settings and with xposed + gravity box, but no success
                - what is this black bar with this three points in the middle underneath the Navigationsbar an how can I switch it off? Seems to do nothing at all. When I hide the navbar it disappears but sometimes it stuck in some apps.
                - sometimes the navbar is overlapping buttons of some apps. So I have to hide navbar at first to click these buttons. But it's probably a problem with bad developed apps. On Homescreen it's enough space between navbar and dock

                  Hello the newest "Puffin Browser Pro" don't work correct with the Finless ROM and also with the original RC2 ROM from MINIX when I want to watch live turkish online TV channels for example with the following URL "http://www.next.web.tr/canlitv.php" I can just listen the sound but I see always a black screen without any picture but it works with the latest old original KitKat (4.4.2) firmware from MINIX perfect!
