My Q10Pro displays the following firmware
Android: 5.1.1
Build number: HMD-1.0.9 2016-12-13.091707

I ordered my player through Aliexpress.
It seems the new firmware/updates are more android 7 version.

Are there any major drawbacks of upgrading from android 5.1.1 to android 7.
Please share your inputs and accordingly i will update as per the instructions given on page 1:
Instructions if Android 5.1 (firmware version 1.0.1 - 1.1.0) currently installed on Q10 Pro:

Potential drawbacks for version 2 that I've discovered are:

If you use the Hicontrol Android app you will need a phone or tablet running Android 7.

If you stream from a PC via folder shares I found that MediaCentre LAN option doesn't like spaces in the shared folder name. Others may not have experienced this problem. I worked around this by renaming folders with underscores in place of spaces.

You will need to disable the joystick addon or "return" and "menu" remote control buttons don't work. Not a problem unless you use a joystick/joypad to play games using Kodi.

If you have already started populating your libraries then you may well have to do it again as I found a restore of my library from the Kodi Backup addon didn't work. Restores from any version 2 to 2.04 should be ok.

I did find one DVD ISO (Envy with Jack Black) that was very jittery using the wrapper but it plays ok using the Kodi 17 native player. I recall it was ok either way with 1.09.

I don't have a 4K TV so there may be others relating to this that I don't know about.

If you upgrade to version 2 it makes good sense to complete the path to 2.04 as that appears to be a pretty solid release.

so i had 2.0.1_2017-01-10.164949 on my box.  Previous to finding this thread, i tried to install 2.0.4 via upgrade menu option. seems i bricked it. i installed  the correct firmware from this thread via upgrade button like this thread says. its not bricked. Do i do each update one at a time? no skipping firmware versions?

From what others reported so fa for sure regarding the 2.0.5:

-Imprex flickering bug is more likely to present (ruins the whole PQ, but if you don't use Imprex, juts turn it OFF and ignore this).
-embedded subtitles are not OK (freezing lines bug)
-significant drop in internet and SAMBA speed (some reported also choppy 4K playback via LAN, like SMB). 

Others might also complete/correct my list if i'm missing something...

It depends on the instructions of the firmware version, usually is one at a time.

None of the above  ???.

I have to say that, after a year of use, I'm now quite happy with my Q10, it does everything I want  :D!

Using  ANDROID 7 &  HMD-2.0.5 (pcristi version).
