Using OTA Updater for XUUM
This guide will show you how to run the OTA updater on your XUUM player and get the latest releases of our firmware. From time to time, we release firmware updates to improve the experience of using the XUUM. Applying these updates is now very easy using OTA (Over The Air) Updater.
Firmware releases will be notified on our Twitter account so be sure to follow us! @xuumtv
* It is strongly advisable before you update your firmware, that you first reset your OTA updater
From the XUUM homescreen navigate to SETTINGS > OTHER > MORE SETTINGS > APPS > then scroll to the furthermost window entitled ALL APPS and open OTA UPDATER.
From this window choose FORCE STOP and then choose CLEAR CACHE and CLEAR DATA.
Exit back to the main menu. Turn off your box and unplug for 5 seconds. Turn back on and run the OTA update.
*OTA (Over The Air) Updates will only work whilst using a WIFI connection. If you are using Ethernet, please change to use WIFI to carry out the update then switch back to Ethernet once update is complete
**IMPORTANT** Choose WIPE DATA when prompted if upgrading to our new Interface firmware released 10th September 2015
Firstly, scroll down to the UPDATER tab and you should see the OTA icon on the right. If you cannot see it then go into ANDROID APPS and scroll down.
Once in OTA Updater, scroll along to the ROM tab. From this screen you can see the ROM version you currently have installed on your system and any available updates will be shown at the bottom. NOTE: Sometimes, if you havent removed the power from your XUUM for sometime, the Available Update may not show, in which case, scroll down and select Available Updates, this will then make the update appear.
Select the Available Updates option and if one is available you will see the update dialogue appear. Choose Download
It will begin to download and show you a progress bar
Once downloaded, you will be given the option to FLASH, choose this
Clean Install vs Update
Now, you have the following choices.
Wipe Data – This is like a factory reset. It erases all data on the box, installs the latest firmware and brings you back to the welcome screen to setup WIFI like you did when you first received the box from us.**IMPORTANT** Choose WIPE DATA if upgrading to our new Interface firmware released 10th September 2015
Wipe Cache – This will just update the firmware with the latest additions/changes we have made. It leaves your logins, downloaded apps and personal settings on the player untouched.
For this guide we will just choose Wipe Cache and then choose install
It will then reboot into the flashing screen with a progress bar visible.
Once finished, it will boot back up in to the XUUM homescreen
*It is strongly advised that you wait at least 4 minutes for the new update to take effect and update all the existing apps. You will most likely be met with several notifications for allowing google to verify apps. Choose decline (or accept, up to you) to each of these notifications. Once the notifications stop appearing, you know that your update is complete.
You are now ready to enjoy the latest update.
