A change from firmware 2.0.0 is that there is now no need to install a migration firmware then a second final firmware to go from Android 5.1 to Android 7.

The upgrade from Android 5.1 to Android 7 is now done by one single upgrade.

As with all Q5/Q10 Pro firmware, whilst the upgrade can be done via box settings, we recommend a full reinstall according to our instructions using the UPGRADE/RESTORE buttons for best results.

hi,
Always the same problems
Himediaplayer still manages not well subtitles Arabic.
blackmarkt does not work (black background). But functional 1.0.9.
Ponydroid the menu icon is not there, and if you press the remote menu key, there is crash. But functional 1.0.9.
Lag in video and kodi 17, there is more option Vsync so sometimes the image is cut.
