I've flashed this rom several times, and still the same result. The screen blanks out randomly. If anyone knows of a fix, I'd appreciate hearing it.

 

 

thanks

Hello Super forum here and finally there is also something x7 for the Neo.
The last image (NEO_X7mini_20131122.rar - X7mini_20131111.img) you can not activate the wifi :-(
But I think there is something done very quickly.

Thank you !!!

 

I've flashed this ROM on my X7mini and it works fine !

I have also installed justXBMC.apk and am just short of a libmedia.so file to get DD/DTS passthrough in XBMC.

 

Can you provide the patched libmedia.so file as well? ( I have attached the file that I have)

It would be of great help !

Hello,

I have received a similar request for the Minix X5 firmware and I'm currently looking to make a generic addon for both devices.

Cheers.

Appreciate it, thanks!

 

But please consider including the support for DD/DTS pass-through (patched libmedia.so), this is key.

Thx for the firmware it looks great.
But i can't connect wifi.
It just keeps scanning for devices and i can't stop it.

So i'm back to the 007 for now.

Hi, I don't get the "APPS" icon in the MINIX GUI. Tried burning the FW twice with the same result. Problem is that I can't manage/launch apps like XBMC.

Any idea?

 

Thanks

HELP PLEASE

 

I flashed this update on my Neo X7 and on bootup there is some very enlarged logo at the bottom of the screen saying Custom something and then the screen goes blank.............

I am trying various ways to get back to a standard image but none of the flash tools

RKBatchtool 1.7 or Finless ROM_Flash_tool will even recognise the device

I am pretty sure I have the right drivers as entering Recovery Mode the computer bleeps

and the Neo shows on the devices, but auto-disconnects after a minute or two

 

What to do??

Cheers and Happy New Year
