Hello,

How works XBMC on that firmware?
Without audio sync issues?
XBMC Xios build from 10052015 is better than 20130330_geniatech?

Regards

Is this firmware better than the Customized GBox MX2 4.2.2 Firmware 20130514 for DroidTV MX? I have no issues with the GBox firmware, and there is no audio sync issues in XBMC.
I don't want to mess up a good thing....
Can this firmware be applied over top of the GBox firmware?
Can it be installed from within android using the upgrade app?

This one FW is taken from G-Box website and customized for your needs. The release date is - 20120522b.
This FW solved my issue with the streaming 1080p over the Ethernet.
I didn't have the audio sync issue with the XIOS build, moreover XIOS released the source code for their build and we are already working on the customized build for XBMC for our DroidTV M3 & MX based on this version.
I know it's painful to reinstall the FW and loose all you changes Sad Have you tried to use the Titanium backup for this purpose? Does anyone can share his experience using that app?

I would be grateful if anybody could test that FW release and give a feedback. Thanks a lot guys for your participation Wink

Thanks Evgeniy for the post.

I was quite satisfied with your customized GBox solution except for the bundled old Netflix version that still shows small subtitle fonts. The firmware originally included with the device I got was slow, and I couldn't make Netflix to work on that. So the GBox firmware was a refreshing step forward for me, even though it wasn't the best Netflix support.

So I gave it a shot to this one, which doesn't include bundled Netflix (nor XBMC) as the previous. Then, I installed Netflix from GPlay and it works like a champ.

Talking about XBMC, I installed one of the builds you posted and it works great so far. Maybe I will add a review entry to the spreadsheet you started there.

Thanks again!

That's odd. It says it includes XBMC Xios build from 10052015?????

Nice post Evgeniy! Thank you!

Wifi is working with this firmware(both drivers are included 8188eu and 8192co).

I used Titanium backup to restore all apps and data after I upgraded to this firmware, so I was ready in a few minutes...

The full 1080p in XBMC isn't working yet(still scaled). I guess we have to wait for Matricom to solve this...
