    I would like to install a custom recovery. Is there a flashable root available for this yet?

    Ok, I used Gufone's update.zip for the x7 and now I'm rooted. I am kinda hesitant about installing cwm. I don't know what size the recovery partition is or maybe that doesn't matter. Any help is appreciated.

    Ok, I got cwm recovery installed. I downloaded cwm for the G4 from here.

    Just rename the file to update.zip and system will detect update. Sorry if all this has been covered. There's not much info on the G4 here in the new forum.

    Even though there is a zip file for this, it doesn't really work. I tried it and your G4's F/W will become corrupted.
    Only way is to use a PC to update from 4.1.1 to 4.2.2v005. It is pretty easy for the G4 compared to the other Minix boxes since you don't need to use a power adapter, just the USB cable to your PC is enough to power your G4 for the update.

    aving the same problem, always seem to end up in recovery mode no matter how I try to update (computer or zip). Would just like to use the wifi remote with smart phone.

    I kept getting stuck in recovery using the zip method. It flashed fine once I got my pc involved..

    Hello, I have an issue while downloadeing the latest firmware ( ends about 10/20% ).
    Is it possible to have a mirror ?
    Can someone share this file ( using dropbox )?

    Use a download manager (e.g. Free Download Manager)
