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.
I finally found a working solution in the freaktab forums. You just have to connect power to your MiniX and then press and hold (!) the power button for the whole flashing process.
So I didn’t have to deal with shorting some PINs on the PCB 🙂
