Exactly spoken, the Z1 does not come with minimserver preinstalled.
I have to press a link, after which minimserver is being downloaded and installed.
But Thunder-Data has made installation very very very easy with a SDK which is integrated in the software of the Z1.

The Z1 must be managed with an (Android) app from Thunder Data. There is no other way.
As a user I do not have access to the Linux partition on the Z1.
This app from Thunder Data is the only way to install 3rd party software on the Z1

I do not have a choice to install server software of my own choice.

I am invited by the app to install servers like Roon, minimserver, etc.
When I do not install one of the servers mentioned in the app, I cannot play music from the Z1.

Below you can see a screenshot of the main page of the Android app.
In order to install minimserver, I have to press the link to minimserver, after which download and installation starts. That is all.
It is one smooth operation without input from me as a user.
I do not recall I had to agree with a license.
I do not recall any question like Windows Installer always asks.

After minimserver is installed,and I press minimserver on the mainpage, I get this page.

Linn Konfig tells me this about minimserver on the Z1

In response to the thread on roonlabs;
I have emailed Thunder-Data some weeks ago, and I almost immediately got a comparable reply from a man also named Chorus Chuang.
Thank you for asking.
We will check with MinimServer person in charge about it.
Before that, could you use ReadyMedia instead of MinimServer?

(ReadyMedia = Samba server, which is part of any Linux distro)

On, I think I read we are all invited to contact Thunder Data Silent Angel is a platform, ........ It allows customers to install 3rd party applications of their choice (They pay the vendor directly). Thunder Data also provides an SDK to assist porting of 3rd party applications to Z1. Please contact for more information.
