    Minix Neo X7 Quickshot v2 Rom by The Nitro Team

    [Custom ROM] by The Nitro TeaM Quickshot V2
    THe TeaM Nitro presents
    -------------------------------
    ***** ***** Quickshot v2 ***** *****

    The Nitro TeaM (TNT) is formed : Litry , Tincore , Leolas , Skelton and Daemonium

    Well, this time we want to offer the second version of Quickshot, it has some improvements and make the rom easier to use, we have worked hard on it and hope you enjoy it.

    Changelog:
    - Based on the stock rom 008 Minix , we have gutted it and we added everything that seemed useful for us.
    - We have removed the overlay by default, we find it useless and it results in wrong identification of the device resolution in various applications. The kernel used is the Minix stock 1080p and we also provide overclocked kernels (patching the stock kernel) to be installed, all of them 1080p.
    - Debloated, this time rather more than in the previous version.
    - Rooted with the latest SuperSU installed.
    - Updated and full working Busybox.
    - All Google Apps updated to their latest version .
    - Added init.d support. It was tested and works great.
    - Added adb tcp (by wifi or ethernet) and adb is working from the start while you connect the OTG USB to PC.
    - Now from terminal or adb you can use the nano editor to edit files .
    - Some TCP tweaks
    - Launcher-MOD , transparency and customizing launchers and background. Look at the wallpapers available, they are great.
    - Pre-installed apps Es FileExplorer, Mxplayer, Firefox, Tincore KeyMapper, Reboot apk, xbmc-modded (minix based), Adaway, terminal emulator, Sony Walkman music player, youtube HD, etc ... All applications are installed as user, so if you want, you can uninstall them without problems.
    - Added Quickflasher and KeyMapper from Tincore, great job done, later we will explain something more about those applications.
    - Added some support for mele F10 and RiiMini i8 .
    - Added a quick configurator to start .
    - Replaced the framework cursor.
    - Moded xbmc with some preinstalled addons and custom skin.
    - CWM recovery installed automatically after first boot . Now you can make backups of your Rom, install updates from the cwm recovery or restore previous backups.
    - From this version we have a new system ROM update , now just copy the files that we will provide to the sdcard or external sd for the update.
    - We provide a large number of kernels with speeds for all people, from a simple oc, to a very aggressive oc, we will give you the choice , remember that very aggresive oc can generate more heat in the microprocessor and short the life of the device, do it with moderation and knowing what you do.
    - OTA service from minix disabled.
    - Some other little tweaks applied.

    HOW TO INSTALL IT:


    Now we provide 2 ways for install the ROM:


    1. Using THE PC:


    Flashing from windows XP, windows 7 or windows 8, that's the easy way. If you are using linux, windows 8.1, or MACOS things can get pretty complicated .


    This process will erase everything we have installed in our Minix Neo X7 (inclusive the sdcard), so backup whatever you want before flashing the ROM


    Download and unzip the rom.


    Connect a usb wire from pc to microusb OTG port, then, using a paperclip, press the reset button located next to the HDMI connector and press the power button , the PC will detect new hardware connected .
    Run RkAndroidtool.exe and press ERASE IDB , wait until the process ends, then press Run and this will flash the new ROM , after that the device will automatically reboot. At first, it will enter in the stock recovery and some internal partitions will be formatted . Then it will restart again and your new ROM will start to boot. VERY IMPORTANT!! DO NOT DISCONNECT THE DEVICE IN THIS PROCESS.


    2. FROM CWM RECOVERY:


    If you have already installed the original quickshot we offer this much easier way to install the rom, if you are coming from another rom we can not guarantee that the process works properly. It may be that the size of the system partition is smaller than the stock one so inquire before.
    This method will delete the apps you have installed, and cache configurations. But retains the content of the internal sdcard.
    We offer a zip file that you only have to download and copy to internal card or external sdcard. Then boot into cwm recovery.
    You must select install from sdcard .
    You must select the file you have downloaded and confirm it's installation , wait and the display will indicate what are you doing, when the process is complete you will got cwm recovery menu, now select Reboot and the device will boot and it will start the installation wizard.




    POST-INSTALLATION:


    Once the ROM boots, an installation wizard appears.
    -Select your language, by default it is in Spanish. English is just one step down.
    -We set our wifi network.
    -You can set your GMAIL-PLAY STORE account.
    -Once the process is complete, press the HOME button (the house symbol) and select the default launcher, You can choose the stock launcher modded or use XBMC as launcher.


    You are now ready to enjoy the ROM. While you are setting up your account details a new CWM recovery is installed on your recovery partition and some additional programs, all as user and you can unsinstall them from settings without any problems if you want.


    SOME VERY USEFULL APLICATIONS INCLUDED:


    This Rom includes a special app designed by Tincore so anyone can Flash a kernel or install little updates easily with a few clicks, this app is called QuickFlasher (a great job of Tincore, who has worked hard to give this usefull app to all users)
    This Rom comes with the stock kernel at default speed but we strongly recommend you to try the kernel with the ram OC to 720 (note that 720 is the ddr ram speed not the display, all kernels included are 1080p), the user experience is great, in fact this kernel is that the team uses by default in their own tvbox.
    You must download the zip files that we will provide, some with kernels inside and some of them with little updates/patches, like small or big Icons, enable overlay (we dont recommend to use overlay), etc... then you only have to put those files in a folder called quickflasher on the sdcard (/sdcard/quickflasher), open quickflasher, accept the disclaimer, select the zip file that you put in the folder /sdcard/quickflash/) and push install the update/patch.
    Make it easier is impossible, don't you think? Changing your kernel will not be a task reserved for average users.
    We included links to a lot of patched kernels and for some options at the download section.


    Other application from our team member Tincore, is a keymapper, used to configure all kinds of input devices: USB remotes, keyboards, mouse, airmouses, simulates touchs with our mouse/airmouse clicks. It is a great complement to any Stick or TV Box, in our opinion is a program that simply must be in these devices. If you want to use Tincore you have a WIKI about how to use it where it is explained properly how to use.
    WIKI: https://www.google.com/url?q=http://...3TJ1-jmmZJbFOw
    Help forum: https://www.google.com/url?q=https:/...XLy0t6IOH2xRhA




    We also incorporate Reboot.apk, another app made by Petrus at http://www.freaktab.com, an application that allow us different reboot mode and shutdown. If you are tired of use the clip to press the hidden reset button in order to enter recovery or Bootloader. With this app you can do it in a couple of clicks from android.


    Our rom also installs cwm recovery in the box after the first start, as you can see, the stock recovery is very limited and doesn't allow us to do virtually nothing useful, with cwm recovery you will be able to make a backup of your rom and restore it later, update roms without pc and apply updates too, if you're tired of having to configure the full rom whenever we install it from scratch (either by a fail by touching something, one thing that worked before and now there is no way, etc...) Once installed the rom, fully configured, with the programs that we use, then make a backup from cwm and if something fails, in 5 minutes you can restore it from cwm recovery. We will also try to use cwm to add the updates in the rom. Forget about to have to connect to PC and install the updates from the X7.


    This rom also includes ADAway, it updates our host file and block some advertising and banners.


    We have included a modded version of the xbmc made by minix that already included xbmcbackup so that you can restore your previous backup.


    With the rom we include Youtube HD, (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1529715 all credits to theos0o from XDA), now in advanced settings you can choose 720p or 1080p.


    We also advise that you see and try the new wallpapers added to the stock launcher, a great (and funny) work by Litry.

      CONFIGURATION RECOMENDATIONS:

      -Go to settings, in WiFi section, if you use wifi, we recommend that you press the 3 dots points that appear in the top right of the screen, select Advanced settings and deactivate WIFI optimization, our Android tvbox uses no battery and it is better to have wifi to 100% always.
      -If we don't use BT, disable it, if we use it, from here we can setup and configure our Bluetooth devices.
      -Please do the same with Ethernet, if you don't use it, disable it.
      -If we do not use a 3G Dongle, like most dont, we recommend to disable in more/mobile networks/ enable data and data roaming, put both of them disable.
      -If we dont want the system bar appears. Go to Settings->Display, and select autohide system tray. It will hide the status bar in sll apks except launcher, take care that xbmc is considered like a launcher for the system, so it will not autohide for xbmc.
      -In the screen section, you can set multiple values, in scaled screen we must adjust the bar to match the edges of our android system with our TV or screen.
      -if we want an icon for screenshot in our system tray we can activate it in settings/screenshotsettings.
      -in the applications section, we have all that come installed with the rom, we have included the apps we consider essential, but are all as user applications, so if them bother you, you can remove them without problems.
      -In language and text input, we have a couple of options that we recommend, Tincore Keymapper, to configure your input devices: pads, josticks, airmouse, keyboards, etc... and NULL INPUT METHOD, a very usefull application that prevents Google Keyboard to be displayed if you're using external keyboard. By default, I advise you to install any of these two.
      -development options, we recommend that you activate Stay awake option, this makes the HDMI output not turning off when we take a while without using the device, the device remains on without entering the suspension mode.
      -also in development options, there are a few options who decrease the duration and transitions of the animations used by the system, we see the Minix X7 fast enough to move Android without problems, but if anyone wants more smooth feeling, we suggest you to put 0,5x window animation scale; transition-animation scale and length animation scale.

      EDIT:
      If someone has problems with xbmc and FPDIF sound output, please look at this:

                  Re: Minix Neo X7 Quickshot v2 Rom by The Nitro Team

                  Thanks! We expect that people enjoy the new version
                  We have implemented a new way to launch updates for the Rom by cwm too, only adding a file in the sdcard or in an external sd , the system will detect it, and on the next reboot, the box will reboot to cwm recovery and start automatically the update, after that, it will reboot automatically and start the system.

                  About hide the launcher, sorry but it must be hide manually, or installing an forced full screen app, dont remember tje name now. I will search it for you.

                      Thanks team.

                      I have Quickshot 1 installed with Minix XBMC. Can I just install the new ROM over the top and maintain my XBMC library? Or do I need to do something special.

                      I was planning on using Titanium to maintain the rest of my apps and settings...

                      Did you have any luck sorting out video issues on NFL/AFL apps that I mentioned in the last thread?

                          Benster1,
                          this xbmc is the latest from minix, it has some customization such a skin and xbmcbackup bundled, and of course modified to act as launcher. Feel feee to uninstall it and install the minix version.
                          also you can try this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d.hidesoftkeys

                          lachyzee,
                          titanium backup is the way to go. also suggest to use xbmcbackup.

                          thuglifesk,
                          it's clearly something on your side. i suggest checking your ram memory and/or using different browser/downloader to get the file.
