    anyone encounter the same issue as described in the above mentioned post?
    to note, i am using the burn card maker posted in this thread to create the sd card

    [EDIT] issue was resolved by doing a factory reset first before flashing the new firmware. hope this helps for anyone with similar issue

    Making sd card ready for upgrading is the easiest part but to get into boot from sd is something you have follow proper combination of buttons. Follow each step and also go through other feedback you have got in trouble in booting this from sd.

    I made a USD flash as suggested with 3 files inside.
    I pressed recovery button and was holding until boot menu appeared.
    Nothing started automatically. Files were not accepted as bot from EXT flash...

    Hello, I did image and have the following files on my SD card. Are they correct?

    Sounds good, but no feedback yet...

    Yes, that is correct

    *** the ONE thing that is missing from the instructions is it will NOT work unless you first do the factory reset/wipe ***
    After you do a factory reset/wipe, then the instructions work perfectly.

    Hi, I did factory reset as suggested. Again, no move...
    I need to hold recovery button, then press quickly power button until I see blue blink and in seconds the blue light will appear and I will see MINIX logo whilst still holding Recovery button, right?

    Thanks for the instructions, Grippy Man! I finally decided to upgrade to Lollipop and Burning Tool crapped out at 5% and messed up my box. Burn Card Maker got me back up and running!

    Thanks, Grippy! Worked like a charm on my two boxes. Took about 10 minutes or so for each. Well done!

    Would the SD card method work the same with a thumb drive?

    I ask these silly questions because of where I live. I almost need a dog sled team to get into town sometimes. So I try doing things to the best of my ability before I have to go ice road trucking.
