    In fact for http://en.egreatworld.com/comunity/index.php?threads/poster-v3-2-9-apk.19358/#post-31448
    Is working reasonably well and stable for me.
    This PW3 APK can be installed and used on any FW on any model being Android 5 or Android 7 based. Keep in mind that will be installed next to PW2 as it is officially still is a Beta (but a good one).

    For the other problems try a factory reset. Never saw these problems. For me the code is quite stable (A10 on Android 7 and A11 on Android 5).

    hi all: if you guys are not aware the new ZIDOO Z9X is very good. it has a new generation SOC, great video scrapper and DOLBY VISION....and android 9.0 !;

    @Nice Monkey will not say otherwise ! this is the box to get right now and i am considering getting one myself, EGREAT is DEAD and it seems Android 7 will stay in BETA, and no DOLBY VISION that for sure !

    Did you own this device?
    Before to post "ZIDOO Z9X is very good" I hope you check it how good it is.
    Zidoo Z9X are promising device with great video scrapper , horrible base Android 9 FW and many buggy implementation witch maybe can be improved or not.
    For now are not buying recommendation event they are only options at this time on market.

    It's not perfect, but it's a very good start. That said, they already pushed out plenty of new (beta) FWs. To be honest, support can't be worse than Egreat....@Iron man was last seen Apr 21, 2020...they have abandoned this forum and all they say is "Android 7 will be out soon".

    @Sledgehamma
    I hope I don't have to refresh your memory about reviews of Egreat models from began, it was fully working with first public firmware released.
    Zidoo with Z9X have horrible Android FW ever Zidoo released, now working hard to fixed after already sales thousand of pieces.
    HT 4.0 is better then HT 3.0 not sure about this, but they probably will fixed. For Zidoo music player waiting 4 years to get a re-update Zidoo music player v6.0 witch have no improved vs Zidoo music player v2.0.
    Now back to Egreat is true look like support is end, Hisilicon not support Android 5.1.1/Android 7 SDK anymore and Egreat probably not successful compile need it secure kernel for Android 7 FW to be release for all Egreat Hi3798CV200 models.
    Well see what will next Zidoo with RTD 1619DR will prove what they promising.
    Enjoy media collections in any player witch fit your needs.

    LE:
    Egreat team still have some activity for player with SoC Hi3798MV200
    Unexpected FW for EGREAT A5II CN(Hi3798MV200) build date 20200721.105223 share it here.

    Sorry @E_CS but the new A15 uses a Hi3798CV200 SOC but is running with the Android7 OS. ;)
    So it can be done, but why they don't upgrade their older models?

    I feel they lack the knowhow how to create migration versions:
    A5 => A7 upgrade
    A7 => A5 downgrade
    I learned from Dinobot also using the same old Hi3798CV200 SOC that these are absolutely needed.

    They proved in practice also Android 8 can run on that SOC. Very stable to be precise.

    If you want you can get these special update A7 <=> A8 versions from me (so is Egreat if they want these)

    @Nice Monkey : "If you want you can get these special update A7 <=> A8 versions from me (so is Egreat if they want these)"

    what do you mean exactly ? there is a dinobot FW that can work on Egreat devices ?

    In theory maybe, but not my intention.
    It is for the person who like to reverse engineer how to build Android transition updates.

    @Nice Monkey
    Egreat A15 V2 will come on Android 7 and look to use MediaTek MT7662U module.
    WiFi - Bluetooth is main problems for Egreat A10, A11 V1 why not Android 7 FW.
    Migration from A5 <==> A7 is easy on Egreat then on HiMedia/Dinobot

    Yeah already got the feeling that they don't know how to change/adopt the drivers for their wireless modules.
    Apparently they neither want to hire that expertise as obviously that can be done.

    I hate being stuck with an A10 with a non-working Wireless module on Android 7.
    No way to get it back to the working Android 5. :mad:

    I made a test for Poster 3.3.6 matching is rely improved from ~30% to ~70% but they remove unique implementation of dynamic path over SMB/NFS from Poster 2.0 to make faster so now is like all others scraper showing items with wrong path then can't play without do manually force refresh.

    LE: Accuracy of matching in Poster 3.3.6 are still badly compare with Poster 2.0 for exactly same path library.
