    Everything working for me. Only things I noticed:

    *Main menu CPU, Memory usage meters on bottom right side are gone.
    *When I launched my kodi. My build skin changed to Confluence. Just had to change it back.
    *Also had to re-calibrate my kodi resolution.
    *On main boot up say"Unfortunately, Phone and Messaging storage has stopped"

    Yes I have done this as well.
    A bit of a surprise as I applied what I thought was the latest firmware (last of the 1.0.x series) last night.

    Regarding the memory meters @Robert74 , they went in a previous update which you may not have applied.

    I too, am seeing the "unfortunately, phone and messaging storage has stopped" message, so this is a bug. The message can be dismissed after acknowledging it 2-3 times.

    I see a New boot up logo, any mention of Droidbox gone. Boot up time slightly longer, around 40 seconds.

    Our friend, the spinning weather panel, seems as much of lottery as ever - sometimes location sticks, sometimes it does not recognise it at all, sometimes it loses it.

    I chose to not factory reset my settings and as far as I can see, everything is still in place (dbmc etc). Had to resize screen but to be expected.

    So far so good.

    I have done this as well and I choose factory reset.

    *LibreElec - No problems working on 4k2k 60Hz
    *No errors on main boot (android)
    *weather panel working
    *System and DMBC working on 4k2k 60Hz without any issue
    *no more volume issue (turn down it self)

    I have found 2 issue for now:

    *Main menu CPU, Memory usage meters on bottom right side are gone (same like Robert74)
    *OTA Updates - Error fetching update info: Invalid ROM ID (DroidBOX-T8-Mini-6.0)!
    *After boot up it's go to SD card connected screen

    Hi @Poison85

    As explained to robert the removal of the memory dials (which in my opinion added little value) was in a previous update not this one. Looks like you missed that and now caught up.

    The ota update message means your box is up to date. Possibly clearing cache and data in the ota app (in settings - apps) will remove it.

    Hi Nigelar,

    Yes, i missed last update cos there wasnt any on my box for some reason.
    I clear cache and data but same message about Invalid ROM ID - i will wait till next update. Thanks.

    Hi all.

    Here is a possible fix for the "unfortunately, phone and messaging storage has stopped" error.

    Go into settings - apps - running apps.
    Find the "phone and messaging" app and click on it.
    Clear cache and data.
    For good measure i also switched notifications off (i think this is the important bit)

    After 2 reboots i am not seeing the message. I suspect switching notifications "off" has fixed that as data and cache get loaded with a small amount of data on each reboot anyway.
    Doesn't seem to be a way to disable the app - probably part of core android os.

    I did go into settings and cleared cache and data and have had no more issues. I will also switch notifications off like you said for extra measure.
    As far as not needing the CPU dials. They would help me determine when to launch kodi. It would take a minute or so upon initial boot up for CPU usage to drop below 50%. If I try to launch kodi before , my droidbox will reboot. I have had 3 reboots since the update. Do not want to loose any of my settings by doing a factory reset which I had to do before the update.

    I have a t8mini mini and after reading about these problems I'm glad I haven't installed new firmware.. It's very sad that development team didn't think things through in testing it thoroughly before pushing updates to customers..

    Just updated this f/w and all looking good, wouldn't mind a larger pointer on the android menu its like a gnat on steroids when the pointer speed is turned up (eyes aint as good as they used to be and hard to track) anyone come across a setting to change this? Have been all over google to no avail. Other than that well done DB could be replacing my T8-s Plus (main device) with this as all good here and LibreElec is growing on me now its settled down. Thanks Sean....

    Turned the notification off and cleared data in the app before the install, is always best to let others test out first and heed their feedback:)
