Hi. I have some problems with this firmware: 1. When enable the device I see message "Unfortunately, Update&Backup has stopped". And in manual mode the app send "Check Failed! Check Your OTA Server Agent". 2. The button "Paste" does not work after select and copy some text in any app. Also drop-select field not worked in browser. And buttons in volume panel also. I think it is one problem. 3. The button "Home" closes a active app, but it must only to hide. It due the file '/system/etc/allowbackgroundapp.list'. I deleted it and the bug missing. But why you include it in the released firmware? 4. The some other minor problems in different places. I hope you fix these bugs shortly time.

Can somebody tell me if the AM1 suffers from micro-stutter on 23.976 coded files (the olders ones, like 720p format). I know that many Android boxes have this issue, but some vendors were able to fix this. Let me know if this is true for AM1

More points to the previous comment: 5. A problem with USB flash-drive on FAT fs. FAT32 connected normal, but FAT no. 6. The SD card slot don't open a card on FAT or FAT32 also.

I just found the above comment about allowbackgroundapp.list file. Damn it! I have spent TONS of time trying to find out what has been killing my apps off all the time. This is REALLY NON-STANDARD Android. If this is really desirable for some reason, it MUST be documented clearly for all users. It would be really nice if this were contol-able via an app of some sort. I am really happy to have found and fixed this on my device. But I am REALLY unhappy about the huge waste of time. This is a BIG ERROR and very user unfriendly.
