  • Tanix T8 Max Latest Firmware Review

    Ok First comment have to give Tanix a hats off for actually going off the normal path and making thier own look and feel. Its actually nice everything works few simple issues but all in usable and flows nice can add icon and found it very easy to navigate. I can see some really liking this Launcher.

    So here we go down the Rabbit hole.
    Android 7.1.2 Runs cool. No crashes yet and only one apk wont run and thats Antutu Maybe 7.1.2 issue but more on that later.

    Kodi Loaded with all the crap so I am hoping we can talk them into just dropping this entire add on crap but it can be removed.

    Quick access to all your apk and menu options not confusing at all..... (Unlike my spelling )


    So heres my verdict. Smooth running firmware I have to give a thumbs up video crisp clean fast cool running and its got a few wierd things like china wifi tester that can go or at least be chosen langage. The ui is smooth and clean no lagging that is noticed. I did this review in chrome so no issues with that browser fine. Well done on your Beta version if every manufacture took this approach it would be nice but this kinda set your device away from the others. Tested on the h96 pro plus as well and its running cooler and better then on that system stock so may also be a plus for those owners.

    Not working
    Antutu
    Netflicks (fix found) delete one on box use this one.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/b3jxit3m1m...lease.apk?dl=0


    Things to remove.
    Kodi addons (also kodi 17.3 loaded before addon downloaded kinda a mess)
    Stock Kodi.
    china wifi apk.

    All in think most will be happy with this release its looking very nice keep it up good work.

    tested on
    Alf pro plus ddr3 /ddr4/ H96 pro plus ddr4 /s10 (yup one brick out 5 devices typical lol) /Tanix t8 So another good release for all.

                You can add Two Orphan Players to the List of the Working the First being the T96 Pro 3gb/16gb Player the Second is the Model M3 M9X 2gb/16gb Player it takes just a bit of Work to make the wifi work After booting you have to add the AP6330 Drivers to /system/wifi/ set the proper permissions and reboot then you have wifi, This would be easy if the Amlogic Customization Tool worked properly with any of the version 7 android systems.

                      I am going to use the microsd card process to load this fw and would like to know if I should check the box to "erase the bootloader" when setting up the sd card in image burner process? I thought I read somewhere that this could cause "brick" issues if it is checked.

                          Got it loaded and running now, so far only issue I have found is es explorer will not run, but had that problem with the last build as well. It just freezes when opening. Haven't tried a different launcher either. I can also say that it is definitely running much cooler and the power on with the remote does work as well.
