    Let the testing start. The release number went up a lot suggesting many interim internal versions. I am anxious to see what the finds/opinions are. :p

    As I have only the A10 and A11 still nothing to do for me. :(
    I understand the findings on this beta for A5 and A8 Pro only will be bug fixed first before a general normal release will be made available for all current platforms.

    As far as I remember one needs to change from USB2 to USB3 when running into the error. The first try via USB2 till the ring comes (bootloader A7) and then USB3 to the final install. Something like that. I think the bootloaders from Android 5.1 (Robot) and Android 7 (Ring) have a different USB port preference. This for going back and forth between A5 and A7.

    If the A5 already is on Android 7 FW Beta then a normal upgrade via USB should work. No need for emergency flashing at all.

    Isn't your player already on Android 7 FW Beta? Anyway you managed to install that one before. Just do that once more and next standard upgrade via USB to this FW. :)

    Simply can't imagine DTS does not work in general?

    I always had problems with the Chinese interpretation of "compatibility mode". I understand what "compatible" means under Amplifier Compatibility but activating a "DTS compatibility mode" for me means that the format is NOT native supported and it must be changed to LPCM to make output compatible. That is what you see. Useful for TV's without DTS support e.g. and my setting is OFF accordingly. Also TrueHD compatibility mode must be OFF to avoid DD signal degradation/stripping. This for those Egreat does not sound as good as it should/could in DD-HD modes. I would change the options accordingly myself to: "Convert DTS to LPCM" and "Convert TrueHD to DD standard". Then more people will understands what is meant.

    One would also presume these settings are inactive when "HDMI passthrough is set to ON", which they apparently are not.

    Confusing isn't it. I think I reported this in the past, but changing Chinglish is not that easy. They also regularly use "Open"and "Close" when they mean to say "On"and "Off" having apparently the same translations in Chinese.

    Happy testing!

    @Nice Monkey cluster size maybe the problem in the usb recovery ? default seems no good

    Bootloaders are simple pieces of code and inflexible. Logical and Physical Sectors must be 512 bytes for sure. My working stick uses 1 sector per cluster hence 512 bytes too!
    Old (=smaller) sticks are better as these use low values.

    Good luck Nenito -- I hope you can get updated. I am curious as to whether the black bars bug will stay corrected with Android 7, as well as maybe a Vidon update as well, but since I have only an A10 I will have to wait patiently as well as everyone else.

    Search for old USB 2.0/3.0 flash 4GB/8GB then format FAT32 with default cluster.
    Migration from Android 5.1.1 to Android 7.0 will work also with cheap USB flash 16GB/32GB/128GB like DataTraveler 100 G3 but need use MiniTool Partition Wizard to make 8GB(~7374MB)/4GB(~3638MB) MBR primary FAT32 partition.
    Note: conversion from USB GB size are made from commercial value of GB to real size of MB read on Partition Tool.
    Newest model USB 3.1 flash as DataTraveler Elite G2 with writing speed over 50MB is not recommended(for me not working) for migration from Android 5.1.1 to Android 7 or back.
    If box already on Android 7 v2.0.1.0 OTA update/USB update from Settings/info will work just fine not need to use paper clip.

    Copy/paste of post from here.
    When successful boot with recovery.img from USB 2.0 port with RST using paper clip
    Android 7 rainbow circle animation will be display
    USB MUST be MBR formatted as FAT32 with partition maxim 8GB.
    Can use MiniTool Partition Wizard if not have 2GB, 4GB, 8GB USB pen or don't know if is MBR formatted as FAT32.

    Trying update to Android 7.0 if will see Android droid animation update will fail.

    Loading update.zip fails for Android 5.1.1 & 7.0.
