    Hi HardwareGuru n Pros,

    Before flash this firmware, my NEO X7 is running on an update-pack of X7 Kitkat v2.2.0 Community Edition.
    And when i flash this firmware on Windows 7 x64, an error appear, i don't unplug cable and power, just click restore button again but error still. Then i pressed reset button, next press reset+power to try flash, my PC detect X7 2s only, X7 quickly disappear from Device Manager of windows (like unplug USB cable). Now, my X7 have errors below:

    1/ Press reset+power and connected PC (boot into flash mode), PC detect during 2s and RKflashtool indicate cyan, not green.
    2/ Press reset+power and no connected PC (try boot into Recovery mode), nothing happen.
    3/ Press Power, X7 is not boot (nothing happen).

    I hope HardwareGuru and anyone can help me solve my problem.

    My way to fixed it base on HardwareGuru's guide from http://www.minixforum.com/threads/downgrade-4-4-2-kitkat-to-4-2-2-jellybean-rockchip-only.5218/
    My Neo X7 turn on flash mode too short, so i press and hold power button to enough time to proccess finish.

    This is video fix my error

    Sorry my post just 1, can't insert direct link in here.

    Mr Guru,

    I have a few questions about your ROM before installing.

    Do have a pre-install Kodi? if yes, what version?
    I am guessing this is running Android Jelly Bean?

    Do you have an overclock kernel?

    Mr only use for this box is Kodi and I have spent the last year trying to find the right combination.
    I would like to have the latest version of Kodi to run Stalker and PIA VPN (OpenVPN)

    I use OpenVPN because I find the speed to be a bit faster than PIA app.

    this firmware is better than kitkat but you have to use kodi 14.2 (15.2 and 16 beta having sound issue, watting to try 16 final)

    Hi all

    download link is still broken.
    Anyone has the file downloaded and could share it by dropbox or similar way?

    I'm trying to see BeinSports in Spain and I have sound 8 second delay. I've tested other firmwares and none of them work well.

    Hello HardWareGuru,

    I wonder if this will fix the Kodi skin flicker problem I've on this X7 clone.

    The flicker only happens at the skin level in Kodi 13.x and up. It doesn't occur on Kodi 12.x abd below.
