Desktop OS for Xtreamer Whizz ver 2.0.2

Dear Friends,

We continue to strive to enhance your experience with our products and  today we introduce a new operating system to Xtreamer Whizz – Desktop OS based on sensational Remix OS.

Remix OS is a new name in the Android space and offers something no other Android on the desktop solution has: true multitasking. Remix OS mimics a full desktop OS with a task bar and has window support for apps. This makes multitasking a breeze and it just doesn’t feel like Android, in a good way.
It is a completely re-imagined Android that supports mouse right-click, Windows-type notifications, keyboard shortcuts, the most advanced file-manager for Android and many-many other features.

So now you can take your Whizz with you when you are going away on holidays or for work, connect it to a TV in your hotel or to an HDMI capable monitor and use it both as a workstation and for your personal entertainment, because – guess what? You can still use KODI (pre-installed) and all of your favorite applications.

You can find out more on the Remix OS site.

(2) STEP 2: Extract the file to your PC

(3) STEP 3: Copy the extracted zip file contents to the root of a USB disk that was formatted to a FAT32 (NTFS will not work).

When you will see on the screen the Android logo you can remove the toothpick from the RESET button.
