NEO X6: Android Lollipop OS Firmware [20170906]

#22
I have a similar situation
my PC can not see the MINIX device
I use the cable attached to the box
after restart, MINIX starts in recovery mode
the USB_Burning_Tool program can not see the connected device
Besides using the original cable (or a cable with data capability), make sure you use the second usb port, counting from de start button.

Can someone help me, I am trying to flash new firmware but i constantlly getting this error

"[HUB1-11][Err]--[0x10102002]Romcode/Initialize DDR/Initialize PLL/USB Control setup error"

I have try with 3 different cable, I even cut the original one and shorten it to about 15cm and that don't help me, also try to change usb ports from front to back, also doesn't help. I bought this neo from friend with 4.4.2. and i have problem with it so i think to set everything new, but this is my pain in the ass for last 3 days. Please any advice how to set this back to normal (also triet to put the 4.4.2. with the burning tool that is in the package but nothing work)

1.Try to put everything together and after that press start not working
2. load img and press start and after that put in recovery that also not working

After 8hours of pain it's done, only one USB 3.0 from motherboard work with installation. So if you have problem with this error try to switch between ports on MBO. USB 2.0/3.0

I just updated a dozen X6 so things are still fresh im my mind and I would like to point out some of the conflicting instructions provided by Minix's attached MINIX NEO X6 - Firmware Installation Instructions.pdf to help others that are updating their X6 to Android 5.1 Lollipop.

1. You cannot use the old burning tool v2.0.4.3 from the last FW008 update, you have to download and use v2.0.9 from the U9's firmware bundle. I have no idea why Minix did not include the v2.0.9 burning tool in this link and only provided the img file even though it is stated in their instructions.

2. The instructions at: "4. Then attach the power adapter to the NEO X6, and connect NEO X6 to the Windows PC via an OTG cable that come with the box." You should connect the included OTG cable (USB-A to USB-A) on the second USB port towards the rear from the power button of the X6

3. The instructions at: "5. To flash the MINIX NEO X6 firmware, the power button should be held down for more than 6 seconds for the ‘Burning Tool’ to recognize that the NEO X6 is connected" does not mention that you have to depress both the "power button" and "reset button" on the bottom of the unit with a paperclip simultaneously before the burning tool/driver will sync with your X6. You will hear a sound when it syncs.

4. The instructions at: "7. Then re-plug in the power adapter and press power button to start the NEO X6. It will take a little while to boot after flashing." is also very confusing since the X6 is already plugged into the power adapter during the flashing procedure. Just wait 3 mintues and it will automatically ask for the launcher selection or turnoff the power and reboot after 3 minutes if the the launcher selection screen does not show up. This is confusing because units like the Minix NEO G4 does not require an power adapter source as it is powered by just the USB connection.

5. During boot up the green Android man flashes for a second in a huge size and off center from the screen before the "Minix" logo flashes like normal. I have no idea why it does this ?

Would you offer up the updating as a service? I have NO clue how to do this. If you are in the states...could I mail you my box? I'm in Phoenix, Az.

I have android 4.4.2 and it looks like the firmware is 2015-03-06. I have a neo x6.
