    Indications are that there will be a new build for the Minix X8H-Plus superseding the existing fw version 008 (201512312)

    I would be really awesome, if you could solve this two issues which still exist in latest orginal X8-H plus firmware:
    - Amazon video app not working (browsing OK, but no video can be started. Short spinner and back to movie list)
    - Sometimes black screens on life TV channel switching with TvHeadEnd. (there are some post of me in Minix forum regarding this problem)
    Thank you

    Thanks.
    It's easy. Just download and install the Xposed Framework and then search the "Browse Modules" list for "Fake WiFi Connection" by LemonSqueeze and download it.
    Install Xposed Installer and click on the Framework option. click on "Install/Update" for the first time and then reboot.

    Install Fake WiFi apk and then within Xposed go to modules and activate Fake WiFi. Another reboot is required for Fake WiFi to be enabled.

    Now you can enable those applications within the fake WiFi module that require WiFi.
    WiFi Analyzer does not require to be enabled to work, it just needs the Fake WiFi module to be enabled.

    Then test. I use Tapatalk and Sony TV SideView as I know Sony TV Sideview can not be used on Ethernet.
    With Xposed you should be able to start a Sony TV from standby and change channels.

    If you're 'very' lucky you should also be able to start WiFi Analyzer and monitor your WiFi network while you are connected to a LAN via Ethernet.

    Update (30-Jan-2016) - No luck involved, all you need is to enable wifi -> Advance -> Scanning always available and have Minix v008 or Xposed Fake WiFi installed.

    Good luck.

    While this is applauded when the focus is strongly against having root access and supported by Minix, it falls by the wayside when using a Finless ROM with root access.
    There are many other tools available for SMB and “Fake WiFi” that provide a more mature configuration when a NEO X8H-Plus has root access.

    Is it possible to remove these 'features' and just go with a cleaner build?

    My reasons are very selfish as prior to Minix “Ethernet disguised as WiFi” I could use an Xposed module, which would also allow WiFi Analyzer to monitor/graph WiFi SSID and etc, when using Ethernet.
    This is not possible now that Minix has included their “Ethernet disguised as WiFi” feature.

    So Minix hasn't nobbled anything and we still get WiFi while it's switched off and Ethernet is the only active physical connection.

    Hello finless.. I recently gotten a x8-h plus and it is good, I have it running your rom, I am happy to hear you are upgrading the rom.. hopefully if will fix my ntfs/ mount problem, can't mount E or something like that.. just happened out of the blue. Was reading my 4tb drive fine, the one day just had problems.. I had to ADB side load your rom to install.. it won't let from a USB.. IDK!!
