Meanwhile time keeps passing and no sign of a new Android 7 2.0.1 Firmware update, although 2 weeks have past since FW 1.09 for Android 5.1 has been posted.
Any news on this futeko?
It also surprises me that after 2 months HiMedia official firmware download page is still showing firmware 1.08 !!! (Neither Android 7 Firmware 2.0 nor Adroid 5.1 1.09 Firmware is there to download. I do hope is not because they are starting to abandon this device and flipping to newer ones   :o :-X

HiMedia have just been at Las Vegas CES showing Q5 / Q10 Pro as their flagship products. There are no new products, Q5/Q10 Pro will remain the main products and will continue to receive firmware development for the next year at least.

HiMedia told me that next Android 7 firmware should be next week (week beginning 16-JAN). Sorry for the delay.

Thanks for your quick answer.
That still doesn't explain why the Firmware page is so out of date.

I don't know why HiMedia haven't updated their firmware page.

All I would speculate is that the existence of two Android 5.1 / Android 7 firmwares makes the update process more complex and this is better handled by a forum (i,e this forum) rather than a simple list of update.zip files. I guess HiMedia are happy with us handling the firmware updates.

I don't mind , as I myself discovered this forum by googling right when I bought this device late summer 2016. But, I did not buy it through futeko.com , but via a Chinese online electronic page (and yes i have the European / International version). But I still wonder if this isn't a risky thing, because many customers do not have or want to have the skills for following forums , specially if they didn't even buy the device here.
Many customers may just rely on HiMedia official page, or in OTAs. In this case they will be left out completely from the Android 7 experience (as it didn't appear on Himedia's page and there was no OTA for Firmware 2.0) , also OTA was not working properly for 1.08 and 1.09 anyway.

Futeko I appreciate fully your efforts and this forum and I am quite happy , don't get me wrong, my doubts and my words are meant for HiMedia.

OK, finally got round to installing Android 7 on my Q10Pro. Followed the instructions and did it in two steps and all seems good.

One of the (many) things I use this box for is playing Video files from a HDD attached to a Linksys router on my network, tried to map the share on the Linksys from the Media player, can browse to it fine but when connecting get numerous errors wrong password - its not, new server error - whatever that means, LAN has stopped, please restart - it hadn't. Tried in Kodi, this worked a little better, browse to the share add it with username/password, browse the contents, select a file to play and "Mount error", same with any file. (I should mention I tried both browsing for the share and adding by servername\sharename and IP\sharename with the same results)

Reinstalled Android 7 no change, revert to android 5.1 and all working fine again, what's going on here, can anyone help? I would really like to upgrade but not being able to add a network share to the Q10Pro is a deal breaker.
