    I Still can't get this to work Tried many times & nothing. I'm probably just going to go by a different brand of box that has better support.

    Must say folks, I was directed here from my intro post by skynet & it's exactly what I was looking for, the only thing you didn't do skynet, was flash the box for me lol.
    Anyway, this worked a treat for me, very clear & easy instructions to follow & my minix is up & running again, thanks very much ;)

    Needed a few reboots since the USB cableconnector was a bit on the short side. Once I put it in firmly and held it in place when booting the Minix up, it worked like a charm. Now stil waiting for the restart, but so far so good

    Welll....sigh....after two and a half hour I took the power of and did the installation again. Now it is running for 30 minutes and still I only see the Android emblem, I will leave it alone to see if anytrhing happens, but I wonder how long it normaly takes to install the stuff in the background
