    Hi3798MV200 players have only Android 7 factory release or beta F/W.
    Egreat made too many custom developments on Android 5.1.1 for Egreat Desktop and IMO they stack on porting to Android 7 over all Egreat devices like want do.

    that is why i never stopped saying to egreat to STOP android 5 LONG LONG ago, but they continued and continued now they lost clients and are struggling to upgrade their OS; on the other hand GOOGLE will release android 10 in a few weeks....
    in any case my time with egreat is UP, as soon as a box is released i will publish my farewell to @Iron man @Morgan and all of you ! too much is just...too much

    Ok guys.. Like @Nice Monkey said android 7 beta 3 and poster wall 3 has been confirmed

    As a matter of fact he also told me that many bugs in android 7 have been finally fixed ! It will be out next week ! What bothers me is that its a beta !! Will we have to wait another 24 months @Iron man @Morgan.. for final ?

    what is more problematic is the fact that A10/A11 won't get anything....

    @E_CS i already you (asked long ago), but


    1- if i jump from "android 5" to "7 beta", will it be easy to go from "7 beta" to "7 final" ?

    2- will i have to U disk Manually like egreat says ?

    3- will beta 3 have the "google pack" included (so we don't have to manually download what you gave us last time)

    @Morgan @Iron man i just hope the many issues @E_CS noted in beta 2 LONG AGO have been fixed as you said many things have; they were :

    - Bluray region code not working.
    - Pause while refresh rate change block EgreatPlayer to start play video.
    - EgreatMusic player not passthrough if standard Android sound setting is not set to RAW
    - EgreatPlayer not start play movie after EgreatMusic player 7.0(f/w 2.0.1.0) are play on background with HDMI set to RAW on standard Android setting, working better with EgreatMusic player 5.0(f/w 2.0.0.8)
    - EgreatPlayer not sound after others video player use it --> reboot box solve.
    - Optimize network setting on framework-res string.
    - Apps set to run on startup are very slow(late) start.
    - Some apps lost their setting after reboot.
    - MyApp forget additional shortcuts after reboot.
    - Add Egreat bluetooth remote support.
    - Add discrete power on/off IR codes support.
    - General improve/speedup of Android base.

    Android 5 & 7
    - Stability of samba network scan some time Video & Music not return a same samba servers in network.
    - Fix Miracast not working when box is connect to Ethernet cable bug present also on Android 5 after WiFi open/close introduce by Egreat Team.


    Also we need google playstore this time to be included ! in any case egreat had a very very very long time to make android 7 better as beta 2 was released 12 months AGO! there was also android 7 for A13 and A9...so hopefully it will be good enough to hope for a FINAL version in the "coming weeks"

    @depmesh won't get anything for now i meant; it was not a definitive response; buy hey, after 2 years only a5/a8 pro gets the update - and only beta - is not a good sign at all for other devices... :confused:
    however just relax a few more days and we well give you a feedback on the stability, if it is not "good" then you won't miss anything; but @Morgan said that R&D made many progress so if true, then it will be ok and we can hope a final version too, probably for other devices

    anyway egreat said new FW will be out before august 3rd 2019. so it is only a matter of hours now !
