Android 8 Beta4 change list request
#1
What about this Android 8 Beta4 FW:
- update.ATV8to8-U5MINI only-normal-190904-warning-This FW does not support rollback.zip
- update-atv7gotoatv8-U5MINI full-190904 This FW does not support rollback.zip
What does work and what not with this FW exactly?

As rollback is not included I would like to be sure about:
- Getting the boot menu option for E2 / Android with it
- E2 actually working via the boot menu after installing it via the Green option
Known Issues List (not really crucial for me)
1. CEC feature not implemented
2. AOL(Android Over Linux) Not implemented
3. Backup/Restore feature not implemented
4. Is the MediaCenter working now or not (yet)
I understand everything else works (or works even better) than under Android 7.

Sharing your experience will be highly appreciated.

Experiences after installing Android 8 Beta4 FW available in various formats
- update.ATV8to8-U5MINI only-normal-190904-warning-This FW does not support rollback.zip
- update-atv7gotoatv8-U5MINI full-190904 This FW does not support rollback.zip
- Update via ROM emergency recovery (pressing OK button on remote control during boot)

This is a later ATV7gotoATV8 image. I can't be used for a mere ATV8 update.  :'(

With all images the bootloader can be used to directly copy that image to flash memory.
Press 2x OK quickly on the remote when the Google menu just appears for that.
Updt will appear on the front display.

Indeed a rollback option is not included but:
- The boot menu option for E2 / Android is present with it
- Also E2 OpenTV v6.2 will be working via the boot menu after this install
Does not work with the 19-09-04 versions!

Known Issues List previous ATV8 test
1. CEC feature now working as with ATV7
2. AOL (Android Over Linux) available via online update
3. Backup/Restore feature available

4. The MediaCenter still NOT available (making it in effect still a Beta)

A huge problem for me is that none of the ATV8 versions support ISO images.
In fact my player is now absolutely useless as I can't go back and really all my stuff is in ISO format.  [Image: angry.gif]

Everything else works (or works even better) than under ATV7.

The change from ATV7 to ATV8 in fact is one of the biggest in the ATV history. The main menu is now working with channels which are highly configurable to one's liking.
An upgrade is recommended only if one can live without the HiSillicon SDK provided Media Center as file manager and without ISO image support. It's a pity it does not work as it is far nicer than the simple alternative included (the same as with ATV7).

Running experiences will be added where and when applicable

What does this mean:

AOL (Android Over Linux) available via online update ?

Is it possible to dowload linux from update?

And how to do?
