    I've read more than once that the original cable is slightly longer and required when flashing firmware.

    since i don't have the original cable, i tried a standard microusb cable. (with no success)

    does anyone knows what so special about the microusb cable included in the box?
    is there different pin layout in the original cable? if so - i would like a reference so i can patch my cable by cutting and re-wiring it.

    I'm using the minix neo x7 16GB (which suffers from bootloop)

    It's a data cable, you can find in any electronic shop (micro USB to USB).
