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

Did you click allow unknown aps in settings?

Hello, I have the same problem on Win 7 64 bit.

 

I connected it to my PC via USB cable (included in oryginal box). I installed the drivers on PC. In the Minix I checked "Conect to PC" and checked "USB debugging".

Now I see on my PC the device - it is called Android ADB Interface. But when I open the Rockchip Batch Tool there is nothing connected:(

Can someone describe what to do in this case?

I am using the Win 7 64bit driver dated 9/9/2013

and I can confirm that it does work Laugh

Best to delete the old driver manually from Windows\System32\drivers\rockusb.sys

Reboot then reinstall

The driver tool does not remove correctly

 

If it still does not work check all your usb ports

I found I had a faulty port that did not work with the driver.........

All are USB 2 before someone asks

I can now install the Stock rom or the Finless versions

Hi, finally I connected one time starting from beginning with this instructions: http://minixforums.com/threads/neo-x7-mini-006-firmware-12th-september.2328/

Here is the Firmware upgrade procedure for Minix Neo x7mini device:
Power on and connect your Minix Mini to your PC using the supplied Male-Male USB cable.
If the device won't be detected by the PC then enable the Enable "Connect to PC" on Android Settings -> USB.
Now your PC will detect the device as external storage.
Now, unplug the power and usb cable from X7mini. Connect the usb cable first. While keeping the reset button pressed (at the bottom of the x7mini; use a pin) , plug in the power. Keep the reset button pressed for another 4-6 seconds and release. At this point, the Windows PC should be connected to the X7mini and the PC goes into a looking-for-driver search mode. When prompted (after exhausting the auto search), point the PC to the driver folder location above. Remember to use the correct location relevant to your PC config (e.g. x7mini\NEO_USBdriverV3.5\Win32bit\win7).If it does not prompt, go to device manager on the windows and configure the driver manually.
Once this is successfully completed, run RKbatchtool.exe. It should show a "connected devices" square icon in GREEN. Choose RESTORE (Important: do NOT use Upgrade) button and point to the firmware file in the folder created in Step 1. The firmware upgrade will begin and do not press any buttons or unplug anything until the process is fully finished.
The X7mini will reboot itself with the newly updated firmware, the whole process may take upto 10 mins.

Hi, I have installed on my Minix Neo 7 mini a Custom ROM as Root and want to change with this new ROM. My problem is that when I do the steps to connect to the PC. I get the Recovery system v4.2.01 with the following options:

reboot system now
apply update from ADB
apply update from external storage
rkimage update from external storage
apply update fom cache
wipe data / factory reset
wipe cache partition
system recovery from backup

What steps should I follow?

A greeting and thanks.

If you are getting those options on the screen

then you do not have your PC connected with the RKBatchTool running

The Tool is the best and safest way to flash new ROMS

 Hey there! Best rom I found so far. I saw that there is a new official firmware (v11) with a few improvements:

 

1.) Updated FFMPEG video decoder library, improved playback compatibility;
2.) Updated system video player;
3.) Solved some apps. unable to output by HDMI issue;
4.) Default screen size set to 100%;
5.) Updated AirPin (PRO) app. (please uninstall the old version before applying the update);
6.) Updated Gotham MINIX XBMC (please backup & uninstall the old version before applying the update);

 

Any chance to include this into your rom? Or can you give advice to update by myself? I think your rom is the best out there but I also dont want to miss the official updates :)

 

Cheers!

Hello,

I can have a look... I don't see v11 firmware on Minix web site, do you have a link (preferably official) for this firmware download ?

Cheers.
