NEO X8-H Plus: Android Lollipop OS Firmware [20170612]

He needs this one:
https://forum.freaktab.com/forum/tv...-ab/682215-minix-xh8-finless-lollipop-rom-1-0 Please read the instruction on the site about letting it sit for a minute or so after 1st startup!
I flashed two x8 Plus's with it and it works very well. With display setting / Screen rotation: you might wanna use "force land" or something like that as some apps will not display correct. After that all is fine.
i tried finless but again once switched on it got stuck on finless logo...
 
Before flashing a "ROM" you might wanna: "WIPE CACHE PARTITION", then you flash and after it's finished, remove USB plug from Minix, then close the burning program. Hope this helps as I never had one go bad on me yet and I flashed lots of them.
And coming to think of it, after the finless flash, 1st start up takes a while to build up the system! so be patient.

my pc cannot detect the minix. any solutions ? appreciate it
make sure the "world cup" driver installed when you installed the Burning Tool, if not uninstall and reinstall

try different combinations of usb cables and USB2.0 ports...it can be problematic to get a connection

and make sure you have no "security" software that may be blocking the connection

and of course make sure you are using the right firmware image for your device
 
Before starting this. I have a Macbook Pro and was wondering if the steps different than a PC. The only PC that is locked and so I can't run in Administrator mode.
The Minix x8-H plus architecture is 4X ARM Cortex -A9-1.99 Ghz. The Revision is r4pi and the GPU Render is Mali 450-MP.

OK, I have access to windows 8 machines and he downloaded and installed the two software packages. I opened the USB burning tool v2.0.9 and it opens in Chinese so I selected English. All is good to this point. Then I load the X8H_PLUS_LOLLIPOP_RC2 image file, but I can't get it to detect the minix box. I have tried the pin in the recover hole and hold down the power key. The device is not detected when I use a USB to USB cable. I tried the USB to micro USB connection. I have seen a youtube video that uses a Burn Card maker and that gets me a bit further. But it did not load correct.... any options?

Its seems the hardest part is to get the USB Burning tool to recognize the Minix box. When i do get the mnix box to reset, it come back with a menu option load from sd card, load ext, load adp, reset to factory, erase cache. I have a minix box NEO X8-H Plus. The JX8HPBOX16601425.
 
I've made the upgrade, looks good, but one incredible big problem is that now the Plex app does not play any files from my remote server.

This is crazy...

there was only one problem I had to hold my mini usb cable up a bit at machine end due to lack of connection. don't know if it was due to cable or the inlet inside. otherwise if you follow the instructions it's ok.
