    great work to all involved
    I couldn't recreate this.

      For me at least when I turn my TV off it breaks the HDMI fix and I have to reboot.

        Try setting keep audio device alive to never and see if that has any effect.

        Is this passthrough using HDMI or SPDIF?

        Also try with SPMC.

              it's ok, i was curious to see inside besides warranty was already voided by installing custom firmware

              at least i know now that "COOLEME" is just a re-branded name for the MiniM8SII

              oh, and no, i don't have the original rom (box was not rooted when i bought it)

                Has anyone tested this modded firmware with an external USB or USB-RF keyboard? The stock Mini M8S ii 08/05/2016 firmware that I received from Gearbest a few days ago has disabled the ENTER key for some reason. I tested this with one USB wired keyboard and two USB RF keyboards. It is hard to believe that the manufacturer did not test this.

                I also noted that AIDA64 indicates that there are both internal USB 2.0 and internal USB 3.0 hubs in the Mini M8S ii SoC but testing shows that they only connected the two USB ports to USB 2.0. I am guessing that USB 3.0 power draw might overheat the device in such a compact enclosure.

                  Enter key is wierd on these boxes on some firmware. I would like to figure out why the on screen keyboard has to be minimized with right mouse for the enter key to work. Maybe a kl file would fix it?

                      Interestingly they include a version of the mod tool and the burning tool. I wonder if it will be easier to mod this one than the A5 rom? I noticed that the A5 rom will simply boot to recovery if you touch the system stuff. Even just opening it, not changing any fields and repacking results in a boot-to-recovery :-( Now I just have to wait for the painfully long download to finish...

                        Hopefully they will have the forum up soon. I urged john to provide firmware for all the boxes and have a forum. I got a 1x8 a95x i tested yesterday and this mod works....ill probably try stock and see what it is like soon. I am not sure 1 is enough memory...i would probably suggest a 2x8....1x8 hangs sometimes and i have no issues with Tanix. I will probably do a 1x8 a95x mod soon. Maybe some alterations with android to help with less memory.

                          Hey prahjister Nice work with all this Great stuff


                          Just wondering if you can make an sd card update flashable zip from this test rom

                          A friend would like to test it on this box but the box has no recovery button
                          http://www.geekbuying.com/item/Nexbo...OX-370436.html

                          He has tested the Mini m8s ii sd card stock rom & he did like it apart from no root (Wifi did not work either but he did not mind that)

                            You don't need a recovery button. My a95x s905x 16/2 box doesn't have one. Just plug in the usb cable and immediately hit "start" on the burn tool.
