    Sweet..... Fast fast fast..... Nothing like a proper running Firmware to make a device run as it should. They should send you 5 more just because you made the device WORK...
    Many devices now mk902ii/Shield/Mk68 /Ugoos/neox5/minix5 (yes they still work lol) mk80 no it doesnt work lol.

            Well i dont, im using the fan kit from my vim1.
            But if you dont have it, them you need 1 heatsink, the ones for the Rasp Pi should do the job just fine!

                    Yes, for VIM1 the heatsink of rpi do the job (need a 13x13mm), but for VIM2 it's a little bit to small, need 15x15mm. But I was able to buy some from Amazon

                      good, if you get the fan from them is also nice.. but i think they are still in production of a new case because on the vim2 the fan hits a chip and make the top cover bend.. so they are working on it!

                    I put rubber spacers in mine just clears but very close. With thremal glue used keeps it very cool.
                    Many devices now mk902ii/Shield/Mk68 /Ugoos/neox5/minix5 (yes they still work lol) mk80 no it doesnt work lol.

                        I'm sorry in advance if this is a simple question to answer. Does source code for Android 6.0.1 and the VIM2 Pro exist? I would like to compile Android 6.0.1 for the VIM2 Pro. Is this possible? If so, do instructions exist? Many thanks in advance!!
