Hello Futeko,

why we do not have the fps display with the official version ?

will it be available with the next FW ?

this is not essential but it would be nice to have it anyway  :)

Not sure why not but I've requested it be put back into next version with as much other info as possible (ideally as an overlay by keypress like Kodi). The info is there in the background so it should be made available.

Sorry no,  custom firmware is made for my taste and shared with HiMedia community.

You can remove via adb shell from PC and your box connected to wired lan
Code: [Select]
adb connect ip_player
adb remount
adb shell rm -R /system/app/Gmail2
adb shell rm -R /system/app/Camera2
adb reboot

Can you make a custom firmware without add some apps such as: Camera, gmail, Camera... Thanks!

LE: ES File Manager, YouTube
Code: [Select]
adb shell rm -R /system/app/YouTube
adb shell rm -R /system/app/EstrongsFileManager

Hi Pcristi, is it possible for you to enable both ETHERNET and WIFI and the same time?

At the moment when you connect thru ethernet, Wifi is automatically disabled.
I have heard that this is basically Android limitation, but same can be worked around with some re-coding of "services.jar" to enable both ETHERNET  and WIFI and the same time?

Maybe you can create an update patch file for those who would like this option?

Thanks.

Question:

Do i have to use the pin-update-method every time i update a custom fw?
I'd like to try one out, but that would mean i'd lose all my settings with every update and would have to start from scratch...

When Bluetooth enable auto, sometime settings force close.

Is the Kodi supplied with custom firmwares are that of HiMedia version of it or the stock Android version from Google Play?

Also, what is the package named HiPQTools under /system/app/? Is it the Imprex Engine file, can I remove it safely from .zip? If so, does it mean there will be no added effects from this Engine, which I prefer. As I prefer to remove all the Gmail, Browser and other such apps not required from the folder to make the system cleaner, before flashing.

Q: Is the Kodi supplied with custom firmwares are that of HiMedia version of it or the stock Android version from Google Play?
A: After firmware 1.0.5 Kodi 16.1 is some in both firmware official / custom Kodi.tv

Q: HiPQTools under /system/app/? Is it the Imprex Engine file, can I remove it safely from .zip?
A: HiPQTools  is a tool for set Imprex Engine.
Yes if want to run in default setting, not mean OFF.
Note: PQ option from HiMediaVideoPlayer will not work of course.

Q: I prefer to remove all the Gmail, Browser, etc.
A: Not problems, but need resign update.zip file. 
Alternative is to remove via adb shell details here.

Hi pcristi,

i surfed here, cause i'm interesting to poweroff app.
I see your custom FW, but nothing about new function you introduced to.
Can you give us a small list about what you've modified in your FW vs original FW?

Many thanks!
