X86 is the 32bit instruction set (program code) that Pentium class processors understand. The android has an ARM processor which is not compatible unless the programs were 're-compiled' with an ARM processor. I'm not sure where you are reading this, but it will never be able to run x86 code without an interpreter or emulation. I would say, not to be mean or anything, but if you have to ask what 'x86 support' is, you probably don't need or care about it. For these applications ARM > x86

You may have the privacy mute turned on, the one which allows you to say rude and insulting asides to someone next to you and the other party on your phone can't hear that.

Can't install firmware on 8560MFP it just keeps saying connecting

firmware apparently requires ghostscript to install. download ghostscript for your operating system(ie: windows NEEDS the .exe and the exact bit(x86 or x64 whatever your os is) id suggest contacting xerox for help even i cannot figure out how to upgrade. of corse i know nothing about ghostscript which explains alot but thats what apparently needs doing. i do not think they will charge you if printer is out of warranty for this basic instruction since they failed to provide documentation.

Do you have your internet, and other basic functions enabled? If not then you need to check if the company you use has you fully registered. It would explain why it's not working.
