MiniX NEO X7 – bricked after flashing

Recently I wanted to update my MiniX NEO X7 to a newer Android Version provided directly from MiniX, but instead of clicking on “Restore” I accidentally clicked on “Upgrade” in the Rockchip Batch Tool.

During the process everything looked good, but in the end the MiniX wasn’t starting, the Rockchip Batch Tool also threw an error.

I tried to enter recovery mode again (by pressing the recovery button with a paperclip etc.) and I could see a green square in the Rockchip Batch Tool, but only for about 7 seconds.
