@Desray,

You experience 4K lock up issues with both the .91 and .96 firmware? Happens to both ISO and mkv?

Yes. I also experience intermittent lock-ups on 4K mkv files. But I only tested 1 title so far.

For those who wants a X20Pro/Z1000 home user interface (for the black and sleek looks) as opposed to that Android TV box like UI. You can install this apk file which I retrieved from the app folder of Z1000 firmware. Just go to APKInstaller or Media Center to select the apk and hit install. If asked for default launcher skin, just select the new Z1000 and select as default. Take note that it doesn't change the functionality or the UI of Settings etc...just the home page. Furthermore, all those customization like replacement of apps on the home menu can no longer be performed. So it is more of a "cosmetic change" than anything else.

Change from looking like this:



to like this:

I ordered an X10. It has a bay for int hdd. Would PQ would be better if I play files from the hdd instead of wireless from my NAS (in a different room) ?

no. just prevention of stuttering/buffering.
unless you do use app like plex.. it has automatic adjustment to the picture quality according to the speed/bandwidth to ensure smooth playback but that of course can be overridden with original quality, stuttering/buffering may occur.

Downgrading from firmware 2.2.96 to 2.2.82

I understand that the recent firmware release (2.2.96) did more "harm" than good especially for 4K content. The previous firmware version 2.2.82 appeared to be more "stable" when it comes to 4K video playback. There is a way to revert to 2.2.82 but requires a flash boot using the "stock" (base) firmware released back in 2018. I have the said firmware in (.img) to allow bootloading using the flash boot.

I'm not sure how many faced this 4K playback issue and wished to revert to the previous version of 2.2.82. If there is a demand for it then I will list down the steps to perform the downgrade yourself and then upgrade to version 2.2.82, otherwise I will not waste my time.


The most annoying bugs for me in the more recent Zidoo firmware for Z9S (that include 2.2.82) include:

(-) Random disconnection from USB 3.0/ HDD Docking station every 1hr - 1.5hrs into a movie - content and type of media files are irrelevant as long as it plays from a USB 3.0 external drive/external HDD docking station

(-) Seamless branching for some BD ISO/BDMV file structure still not fixed

I wasn’t able to run live channel 5/8 from toggle app on z9s. Anyone manage to resolve this? Loading the app is fine. Issue happens when I click on channel 8 icon, all I see is a black screen. Seems like a display compatibility configuration issue.

I never even bother to use the feature :P

Maybe bro Wilbur can chip in?

Can't play any "live" channels ie 5,8,CNA, etc but has no problems playing other "pre-recorded" contents.
