Re: Q5/Q10 Pro Custom Firmware
« Reply #1035 on: November 13, 2018, 12:01:14 PM »
I've tried to update from ANDROID 7 HMD-2.0.7  to the latest 2.1.0 CFW via rear pin push as well as flashing with the recovery files on usb to the following firmware with no luck at all.  Android logo comes up and then I get the red exclamation mark.
Any idea what is going wrong?

I have exactly the same problem with my Q10, I have managed to install the FW from Futeko but I would like to try out this Custom FW, what is happening and / or what is going wrong / what am I doing wrong?

PCHRISTI.............

I just downloaded your update 11/11/2018 to CFW 2.1.0, I changed the name to: update.zip and copyed this to my FAT32 USB pen, then I followed your install instructions to the letter, I got the ring of colours let go of the update button and the ring vanished and the name HIMEDIA came up on my screen then after a few minutes it went to the home menu of my Q10, UPDATE FAILED!!

I checked my device`s info and there was only the Futeko update from yesterday 2.1.0

So, I tried to install thru updates, ticked on USB and got an answer from my Q10...........NO UPDATE FILE!!!! How is that possible? I (hopefully) followed your instructions to the letter and still my (European) HIMEDIA Q10 Pro refuses to except your update.

Any idea`s / tips or tricks?

NTFS? With standaard firmware it is FAT32?

(1. Extract update.zip (using an unzip program like 7zip, winzip etc) from the downloaded zip archive to the root of a FAT32 formatted USB pen drive. (the USB pen)

You don't have to extract update.zip, copy it on USB pen NTFS formated.

I use a FAT32 pen drive but the most important thing is just rename the downloaded file as      update     (do not include zip after it)

Okay, so I renamed it to UPDATE without ZIP and it loaded straight away.  I saw that the old blue screen around the homepage was gone and now it is black with a couple of more apps, Pandora, ES file systeem.

What I did notice was that Kodi by my stayed at 17.0 and that I updated to 17.6 Krypton thru Google store, so I guess my question is: wasn`t there talk about Kodi 18.0 on this update? Not that its a problem, just that I thought I read it somewhere.

Make clean install, your mix OFW with CFW is not recommended for daily usage.
If you still want keep it read how to do dirty install with CFWv2.1.0 with Kodi 18.

I have named it update.zip on my computer and on my USB pen it also shows update.zip

By default Windows  will not show the file extension, this must be explicitly enabled in the settings.

I updated to HMD-2.1.0 using the pinhole restore button last month, Looks and feels great. Thanks pcristi great work.
I now want to upgrade to v1.4 can I use Setting/Upgrade/ from the menu so I do not have to reload everything.
