    Worried... and panicked

    Hey Bob,

    I'm worried you're going to tell me something bad.. but here goes.

    I have a defective Minix X8-h, so I need to return it. In attempts to see if the operating system was part of the problem I flashed it with your image, but now that it didn't work, and I have to return it, I have to reflash it back to stock.

    I'm trying to use the full system image on the Minix site but it keeps stopping at 5% and now wont even boot into your image.

    Any ideas as to how I can recover?

    BUT DO NOT restore SYSTEM. Only restore DATA.
    If you restore SYSTEM it will take you back to 1.0.

      You are in the wrong forum. This is for the X8-H Plus. You may be trying to flash with the wrong firmware.

          Hello,
          are you planning to compile a firmware based on the Minix 003 release? I tried to update using the box but it doesn't allow me.
          Thank you

            Yes but due to some issues with 003 my understanding is there will be a release soon. So I am waiting for that.

              Have you read this from official sources? In a thread here a user seemed to tell you of this alleged upcoming quick update but later realized that what he read was about the x8-h, not the Plus.

                So I cannot keep up on everything that goes on in the Minix forum but does 003 for the Plus also have the CIFS issue? If so that means a update is coming.

                  I don't really know. Lately I mostly visit this forums to see if you posted a new version of the rom.

                    finless, if you do a new rom, please warn here.
                    i have always this page openned to see when you say something.
                    thanks for all your hard work

                      Waiting for the 003 release too. Got the stock ROM now but I really need the CIFS support.
                      Don't know if to wait for the Finless ROM with 003 or just install Finless 1.1

                        hey people,

                        what is the prob with cifs? i have 003 rooted running on my x8h+. no problem. it was a bit tricky because of multiuser-stuff and namespaces and all but i got it working here. for whatever reason not via initd but with smanager that executes a script to do my mounts. heavy data-trafic there too because of my pvr-backend (tvheadend) running on the x8h+ but storing and playback of recordings from/to my nas...
                        i would love to know what problem you are talking about then...
                        cheers

                          Nice! Would like that too. I have mine rooted too but I cant get it working.
                          I used CifsManager etc. I used the command "su --mount-master -c busybox mount -t cifs -o username=****,password=****,iocharset=utf8,file_mo de=0777,dir_mode=0777,gid=10092,uid=10092 //<IP>/<SHARENAME> /data/media/0/<name> in a terminal. All without result.

                          I''ve already posted a lot of issues on the minix forum, see the link.
                          Everytime I get the error "Mount operation failed with an error. Mount now in progress." and as far as I can see on forums and stuff only people with the finless or custom roms have got cifs working.
                          Does anyone know how to mount a shared drive from the network on the Minix 8H-Plus? I got mine rooted and installed Cifs manager, but it keeps giving me...

                            By the way, minix has released the 004 firmware: http://minixforum.com/threads/offici...nix-fota.5196/ but I didn't see any mention of the CIFS issue. Are we sure that they are going to be doing something about that or that the issue is with this device?
                            Dear all NEO X8-H Plus users, (Please note that this firmware is for X8-H PLUS only, it does not work with X8, X8 PLUS or X8-H) Official 004 firmware has...

                              sorry for putting this in the totally wrong thread but it started here....

                              Here how i got my CIFS up an running on x8h+ with 003 and rooted using update.zip:

                              put this:
                              su --mount-master -c busybox mount -t cifs -o username=xxx,password=xxx,iocharset=utf8,file_mode =0777,dir_mode=0777,gid=1009,uid=10092 //yourshare /sdcard/yourmountpoint
                              into a script that gets executed by smanager after boot is complete.
                              acces the mount via:
                              /mnt/shell/emulated/0/yourmountpoint

                              i use rootbrowser to create links to my shares on the homescreen for easy access. any app should be able to access them too using the given path -> /mnt/shell/emulated/0/yourmountpoint

                              feedback pls

                                Because of the su --mount-master I think you talk about the Finless way to root?

                                No need to create /sdcard/yourmountpoint (/mnt/shell/emulated/0/yourmountpoint) before you run the script the first time?

                                Anyway, THX for the right/correct version of the mount statement
