I was away for a while. Partially because of other interests. But 2016 I’m back with new MiniX articles. I also plan to do a head to head comparison to the recently released Raspberry Pi Zero. Stay tuned.
The guys at 4pda.ru forum have noticed that there is a firmware version for the MiniX with Allwinner A20 chipset.
Flash it at your own risk with Phoenixcard 3.0.9. Flash instructions are at the firmware page.

According to the guys at 4pda.ru, this app Paragon Mounter seems to work to mount NTFS and HFS / HFS+ formatted drives.
Check it out:
I came across MiniX versions with different internals. Some have Allwinner A20 (dual-core) and some have A10S.
Interesting also is that some of the versions now seem to have mini HDMI instead of full and a headphone port added (because of the smaller HDMI plug).
There are some reports that these devices can be flashed with the 0202 firmware (1.6) I have put on the firmware page.
Please report any problems (as always on your own risk).
Some of the newer MiniX models are sold in various packages.

They can be run with specific firmware, which is available here:
The MiniX certainly is not dead as a device, and I have some time to post new info.

Check if the V2 firmware works for you or not.
