MX-780HD Firmware Release Notes

These firmware release notes are relevant for 760-owners because there are community modified versions of all these that will allow you to install them on your 760. Which is worth the effort, since Mvix for some strange reason insist of adding more functionality to the 780 firmware than the 760 firmware. Even though the hardware similarities suggest that a single firmware for both would be a much better use of company programming resources. I’ll try posting links to both the pristine 780 firmware and the hacked one for each firmware release. These modified firmwares all come with the standard ftp/telnet/http services added, just like the old 760 firmwares. Note that you will be able to use standard 780 firmwares on your 760 after you have upgraded it with a hacked 780 firmware once, it will from then on think it’s a 780 until you forcibly downgrade to a 760 image. Most likely scenario for that is bricking it and having to install the rescue image, which is 760. Interestingly enough, you can rescue a 780 with the 760 rescue image but you will then have to install a “modified for 760” image before installing a normal 780 image. Hopefully Mvix will release a 780 rescue image at some point so the 780 crowd can avoid this extra hassle.

To clearify, there are THREE versions of the 2.0.x series of firmware.

  • The unmodified 2.0.x firmware from Mvix
  • The modified (ftp/telnet/httpd) 2.0.x firmware for 780 players OR 760 players with 780 firmware installed
  • The modified (ftp/telnet/httpd) 2.0.x firmware for 760 players with 760 firmware installed

So if you have a plain 760 with the 1.x series firmware, use the “modified for 760” version of the firmware to lift your player to a 780. After that, use either a plain 780 firmware or the “modified for 780” firmware depending on whether you want the ftp/telnet/httpd addons or not.
