    Hi, i was having an issue with my Minix when it does not boot up.

    Went to flash the unit to stock firmware but could not get it running

    Flash stops with error:
    [0x30201004]UBOOT/Disk initialize/Send command/Error result

    Please see attached file for details.

    Appreciate if anyone could advise

    I am having the same issue. I have 5 X8-H they all updated or something they turned black screen. I can connect them with USB but I am getting the same error when I try to flash them.

    HI All I'm having the same issue.

    My minix X8Hplus got stuck on boot screen.
    tried the following options:
    - option with booting without the hdmi cable.
    - flashing the firmware on different usb ports but all give the "UBOOT/Partition boot/Initialize partition/Error result" error. (MD5 checksum of the image was correct)

    Are there any other options I could try?
  7. ive just updated on my minix x8h using the pc method now I get minix logo on boot then black screen can anyone help please

    I have the same issue. File check is ok.
    Tried different PCs with different USB ports. Always the same error.
    Cannot boot up in recovery mode for USB update either.
    The blue LED is on when turned on and the red light in the Audio out is on, but I get nothing on the display.
    The HDMI cable has worked, but have tried other HDMI cables and different ports on the TV, both with DVI and HDMI.

    Any ideas?
  9. I got mine going was using the wrong firmware

    Hello I have the same problem Minix stopped working all the ways salvageable described by colleagues above did not help.
    I wish someone from the company Minix spoke on this subject, as you can see a lot of people have a problem with it and were left with the problem alone, now I have a way pad beer and I'm not happy with it.
    Sorry for my english (google translator).

    I'm having the same problem. I need to flash because the box doesn't even boot, but lots of searching later yielded a bunch of dead threads with the same problem and no solutions.
  18. I managed to sort mine a found a flash to work on it and all is good now!!
