    Tried the update using the SD Card upgrade process - which worked with no issues. Makes me wonder as this seems to be the easiest method to upgrade why bother with the USB Burning Tool method ?

    [CITAÇÕES = "HardwareGuru, pós: 386, um membro: 2"] Caro todos X6, X8 / X8-Plus / X8-H / usuários X8-H-Plus,

    Para piscar o firmware imagem, você precisa:

    1.) Faça o download do pacote de firmware .img;
    2.) Extraia-;
    3.) Instale a flash flash USB do Windows, baixando:
    Escolha "Instalar de qualquer maneira" quando o sistema solicita uma instalação do driver, em seguida, abra o aplicativo e e-mail (foto 1 e 2);

    Hi Guys,

    love to try this rom but got a bit stuck. Downloaded and unpacked the rar file to an .img file. Connected my minix neo h8+ succesfully to the usb burning tool. When I try to import the .img file to the usb burning tool application it says: Parse burning iamge fail. Kinda funny it spells image wrong ^^.

    Anyone any idea what is going wrong? I can't find it with google

    @Wiggly's post is very old and as far as I can tell has an X8, X8-H or X8 Plus not an X8-H Plus. They have different firmwares!

    Thank you for the instructions but please can you tell me (What is the normal Erase option) how do I erase the corrupted software before installing the new operating firmware? thanks Bob

    The firmware image reflash will overwrite the existing (corrupted) firmware.
    Just follow the instructions!
