    just create a dir in /sdcard/yourmountpoint and do the mount according to it. access later via /mnt/shell/emulated/0/yourmountpoint

    /sdcard/yourmountpoint IS SAME AS /mnt/shell/emulated/0/yourmountpoint

    because of namespaces it seems to be important to do it like this. i fail doing the mount with init.d. i think for exactly the same reason of namespaces. something seems to be incomplete or buggy in busybox or supersu. no idea exactly. actually i dont care ... it works ^^

    (since i went from finless to 003 a while ago i cant remember really but i think with finless i managed to do the mount with init.d and access directly with /sdcard/mountpoint)

    rooted using update-gufone-root-x8.zip from minixforum.com

      I got the mount working with stock ROM too now on my rooted box. Installed an SSH server instead of doing it directly in a terminal emulator on android.
      Logged in and executed the command as specified by mic.
      Now I only have to do the scripts still.
      But yeah, Finless rom not needed for CIFS then.

        Hello. Just checking if there is any update on a new Finless ROM for the Minix X8-H Plus as Minix recently posted firmware 004. I'm still rocking this ROM and it's been good, interested in later release with any bug fix or performance improvements. Thank you for all the hard work on these ROM's.

            Sweet.

            Thanks Bob for creating and upgrading this ROM.

            Just got the X8H-Plus a week ago and really like the box.
            Currently running stock version 004 and interested in exploring if I can etch out a few more Mbit/sec on Wireless 802.11ac AND explorer why a SanDisk Extreme Plus 96/61MB r/w (as seen via CrystalDisk on Win8.1 PC) only returns 10MB r/w when the 12GB flash (sdcard0) on the Minix box can get 25MB r/w.

            The low IO is seen on "A1 SD Bench" app and via ftp get/put from a QNAP server.

            Maybe Finless Bob could have a passing look at sdcard IO if something simple like caching/buffers could be improved.

            Thanks, you're a star.

            Update

            WiFi at approx 80-85Mbits/sec is capping IO to the X8H-Plus.
            A1 SD Bench seems to be misleading as a local LAN NAS can obtain 29/14MB/sec read/write to the external SD card using the 1Gbit Ethernet interface.

                          It would be nice if we had more guys that can create these custom roms.

                            I know asking for ETA's is frowned upon, but last post from bon is dated April 16. Anyone know is he has started working on updating this Rom. I have brand new X8-H plus sealed waiting for the rom update.

                                Beggars can't be choosers... So I think Bob's probably pissed off at every1 just asking for free all the times. His time is very precious and his work is very decent... So I say we donate whatever we can afford to boost his motivation.... what you guys think?
