This is how I replaced the stock recovery with TWRP recovery, do so at your own risk OK!!

Download TWRP here

- Rename TWRP3_X8H_Plus.img to recovery.img.
- Put recovery.img onto an SD Card formatted to FAT32
- Put the SD Card into your Minix and boot to TWRP recovery from the SD Card (same process as stock recovery).
- Swipe to allow modifications
- Select Install
- Select Install Image which is second up on the bottom right
- On the bottom right click "Select Storage"
- Choose Micro SDCard
- Select the recovery.img in the top left
- Select Recovery on the next screen and swipe to flash
- Once flashed select Reboot System

Name of the TWRP file must be "recovery.img." or "recovery.img"?

I AM trying to recover after installing lollipop and no response. The recovery starts the system communicating with TV but I only see the left side of the page as it seems bigger than the TV. Had to pull the power to stop it .. what do i DO NOW

What are you trying to recover? Are you talking about TWRP recovery? Sorry but I’m not sure what you’re trying to do by your post, can you elaborate more.

thanks Marty
since the lollipop firmware did not install properly I was thinking of recovery to some previous status or factory status. As it turned out I was able to reset to factory status and re-upgrade. I am still intrigued as to why the burning tool would not connect except once in 5 or so to the minix .. why is it so finnicky
Thanks
