    I'm using windows Vista with RKBatchTool. The minix successfully connect with the Rockchip batch tool 1.8. Green light is on! However I i'm try to restore 240.img 250.img and wasser2.03.img they all fail. I have try to hold the reset and Power while restore is running and I get the same problem depending on the .img I get different error.

    my minix won't turn on anymore.

    What are my option?

    i'm not impress at all so far with my minix X7. It worked perfectly for about 1 year. then it started having problem with app. it would not lunch the app once in a while. Then it started to reboot on it's own without any notice while watching XBMC. Then I tried to firmware update with window 10 to realized that no USB support work. I tried the registry hack that lead to me kill all USB support on my PC. I had to go find an analog keyboard in order to repair my windows since i din't have an image with all my software I lost everything on my computer. Then I found and hold Laptop with Windows Vista only to realize that the box won't flash successfully. After couple of days witout support on this web site. I decided to by a Xbox one.

    anyway for 140$ ca for the minix + 50$ca for the minix remote I'm not impress at all.

    How are you not impressed when it has been working perfectly for about 1 year?
    Which app?
    How have you NOT had support?

    It may help if you could say what errors!

    As you refer to a custom ROM, what else in the past may you have done or tried with the device? If you want to restore with a fresh install of the firmware why are you trying a custom ROM?

    @Villa: I'm using this app:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.com.videotron.illico.player&hl=en
    and this app
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=tv.tou.android&hl=en
    and
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.xbmc.kodi&hl=en

    Like I said for 140$ + 50$ I would have expected the unit to last more then 12 months, unless someone can tell me how to fix it. I'll work on finding the error message. I have never flash the unit before I have tried to install the Minix flash first and then I decided to try a custom ROM at they end after been 1 week waiting on someone to respond to me.

    anyway I'm not impress on my Xbox it does not support FLASH and the Android app I use don't exist for window ......

    Guys know if there an other place where I could get support? The errors I'm getting are they normal? can they be because I'm using windows vista?
