4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: No problems with the hardware, drivers, or installing apps from the play store. It works fairly well as a cheap desktop, after installing some apps and some tweaking. Performance is similar to dual core A9 tablets and phones.

Cons: Hardware / Minix

- System does not auto-update the OS. Most users will want to upgrade to Andoid 4.2.2 and flashing the ROM requires using a Windows PC.

- Cannot flash the unit from Windows 8.1, had to use and old XP laptop.

- A little under powered compared to a quad core Nexus 7 1st gen.

- Video players tend to crash, although this can mostly be eliminated with the configuration below.

- Android 4.2.2 look like the newest version that going to be supported.


- Doesn't understand how to work with full sized keyboards very well. The most common problem is that the enter key usually doesn't submit forms and you click a button on the on-screen soft keyboard.

- Lack of windowed or split screen mode is painful on large monitors.

- You have to use a combination of Chrome, Browser (the integrated Android web browser), and Firefox, depending on what you’re trying to do. I recommend disabling the Chromium browser that’s bundled with the ROM. It’s performance is bad and I don’t know why it’s running in the background.

- Chrome does not support extension.

Other Thoughts: Flashing the ROM

- Google "minix x5 download" to find the firmware download site. There are some decent instructions on youtube, but remember to install the rockchip driver from the firmware download first.

Playing Flash Web Video

- Install the developer version of Flash and use Browser (the integrated Android web browser). You can find it by googling "android flash developer version".

Playing VOB Streaming Video

- Install MX Player from the Play Store. Start MX Player, click the three vertical dots in the upper right corner, select Settings, and then Codex. Check all of the hardware decoding options. Un-check all of the software decoding options. On the Player tab, check “Limit video resizing”. Checking this seem to fix most of the crashes.

Playing Video Files From a LAN (UNC) Share

- Use ES File Explorer from the Play Store, browse the the file, click it and select MX Player from the popup.
