I have an old X5 I stopped working with it after upgrading to U1, yet I wonder if I can bring it back to life and make it stream videos and maybe emulate some old games ?

My setup is minix 4.2.2 - it might ne rooted.
And a win10 pc to use for the update.
Two options that I tried:
Option 1:
Renamed the img file to upload.zip and copied to the device root.
It idetified the update but failed with error of not valid package.
Option 2:
Installed drivers in windows 10, device recognized.
Opened the tool loaded the image and tried to update, tool says no device connected.
I also tried to enter in to fastboot but when entered windows recognezed device as unknown usb device also the tool didn't recognize device.

Windows 10 and 422 is difficult because of the prehistoric bootloader. Try the same at windows 7.

Hi...when TWRP boots up you'll be asked whether you want to allow system modifications or to keep it read-only, choose to allow system modifications, there's no benefit to keeping it read-only.
Do not flash the version of SuperSU that TWRP offers to flash for you in order to give you root, it is not compatible and will cause problems. When you attempt to reboot out of TWRP it will tell you that it's detecting that you don't have root and it will offer to root for you, skip past this.

Hi!

I tried to follow the steps to update my neo x5 firmware ... after it updates by RKBatchTool, it boots but it is only on the screen written MINIX, hangs up and back to the same screen ... did I do something wrong? I am using Windows 7x64

Could take a couple of minutes... or you used the wrong fw. Mini instead of normal
