HiMedia Q10 Pro, Q5 Pro / Kodi 18 default skin modification add-on
« on: April 27, 2020, 03:23:10 PM »
One of my pet peeves has always been the inability to change the order of menu items in Kodi. Now I know this can be done by editing XML files but to be honest it was always a pain for me. Anyway after some google searches I found a thread that discussed this request and others re: Kodi skin changes to the default estuary skin. I'm not the author and have no knowledge on the scripting being done but I can verify that it worked exactly as I expected with respect to rearranging menu items although it does much more. See thread for downloading Kodi add-on.

This is my first time using the custom ATV firmware after a couple of years of using the standard CFW from pcristi. I'm so far very pleased with the firmware after using it for a bit. I have one question...is there any way to change the default home screen apps the way we can with the custom standard firmware? I've tried using the menu button and there is no option to change apps on the home screen. Forgive me if I'm missing something here. Thanks for any help.

What was the solution newbi14 so others can resolve as well. Thanks

Conveniently doesn't answer the question about the lack of firmware posts on their site. Yes we can get it here BUT what if Futeko decides to say bye bye? Then we're all SOL. Anyway like I said in other posts I'll just keep flogging my Q5 until it dies!!!

The fact that Futeko doesn’t even sell their products anymore is very telling in my books. Oh well the Q5 that I have still works so I’ll just keep beating it like a rented mule! 😃

Looks like HiMedia have removed firmware downloads from their website. I'm guessing the only place to get updates is here now. Not sure why they would remove the downloads from their site but hopefully we continue to get firmware updates from Futeko

Kodi 18 is a disaster, stay with 17.6 for now

I'm using 18 RC4 and that works very well overall...everything before and after is quirky at best.

hello from new zealand . newbie here.    i just got a q10 pro for a good deal. i would like to install some custom firmware. I have read alot on this forum and have spent alot of time trying to install the latest custom firmware.   my current firmware is oem android 7 . hmd 2.1.0 2018 09 20.022650.

i have tried multiple times to install custom firmware over this.

do i have to downgrade to android 5
i have right clicked on the downloaded zip and right clicked it and renamed it to update.zip.and moved the zip to the usb pen drive .     is this the correct way??
i have followed the instructions .......i get to a floating circle but then nothing just boots to normal screen ...im thinking its nit recognising the file i have changed .

sorry if this has been sorted before but i did troll through multiple pages but no answers....

Just to be sure you're naming it right I would copy the file to your desktop on the PC, right mouse click, choose properties, rename the file under the general tab to...... update.zip

put the USB drive into the USB2 port of the q10 and with the paper clip hold it in and apply power to the unit...don't let go until you've counted to 10 and it should go from there

As far as I know you cannot stream video content with himedia player...must be done with KODI or other media player like perfect player

Make sure in Windows that 'Hide extensions for known file types' is disabled and then download the file again and change the name as per intructions. See screenshot below for windows 7...google for same thing for windows 10 if you cannot find yourself in windows 10...VERY important to format FAT32 but disable the quick format option before formatting. See attachments for example. Good luck.

Quick question regarding upgrade to 2.1.1. Can we do a dirty upgrade with this version or should a fresh install be done instead? Just wondering what best course of action for this version. Thanks very much.

Another improvement which isn't listed in the changelog is that (for me at least) the WiFi and Bluetooth settings remain OFF after a restart or switch off  :) Can other confirm this?

So if you have wifi ON and restart the player, the wifi is OFF? That's bad.

As long as you turn off the settings manually then reboot it will remain off rather than enabling itself again

Same thing happened to me and you need to use a mouse wireless or otherwise to drag that menu down out of the way...similar to what you would do on your android phone.

1. I Think it's already installed, I've seen it in my box.

2. You should see the red lines in the corners of the TV

Thank you very much. I think the blue-ray patch is integrated into the OS...this is why I don't see the app like in the OFW version. Thanks for also clearing up my confusion about the red lines. Cheers.

I'm trying your custom firmware for the first time Pcristi and I really like it. However I have a couple of questions regarding this CFW 2.1.0.

1. Do i need to install the blueray menu patch? When I go to install it's asking me if I want to upgrade which is why I'm confused. I don't see the patch anywhere in the apps menu

2. When I go to settings/display/screen size position...it will not let me adjust so I can get rid of the red bands on the top left and bottom right corners. Please see attachment for example. Using the menu buttons does not allow me to go beyond the 100% so I can remove red bars. My system display setting is set to 1080P 60HZ. Maybe I'm missing something?

Thank you very much for your assistance.
