    Hi
    After flashing this update, all I get is the MINIX icon. The device had been on for an hour.

    Why why why. :cry:

    It would help if you actually stated what 'update' you are referring to, what you updated from and how you flashed the update.

    What what what :confused:

    Sorry I thought I was adding a thread to the same place I downloaded the flash from. I downloaded the x5 KitKat 240 June 4th.

    What file exactly did you download? Did you see my other questions?

    x5-rk3066-240.rar which has x5-rk3066-240.img + some tools and drivers.

    and?
    Did you flash using the rkflashtool? Did it show any errors or success?
    Its very hard to help when we have no idea of what it is you did.

    I followed the instructions provided and flashed it using the tools and drivers provided. There were no errors reported in the tool however when loading it did have some sort of command line message /data/ etc. but it was too quick.

    I followed this process again and here are the results (see screenshots). There was an error on boot this time i managed to take a pic.

    Have you pulled the plug yet?

    I re-flashed and some progress, the box is now asking me which app i want to make my home app. However it does not like any of the input devices I am using. Does it have to be the remote control?

    Which input devices have you tried? Do we have to guess?
    Any wireless/wired mouse or airmouse should work.

    I have tried a wired logitech mouse and Rii wireless keyboard and mouse! Booted with the input devices attached and tried booting and then attaching the input devices.

    This seems hopeless. I guess I cant go back!

    Re-tried and apparently from the text I cannot go back. So I tried to re-flash the ROM x5-rk3066-240.img. Now it has an error: Layer5 - download firmware fail... The love of flashing!

    I cannot go back to my old version which was rubbish but at least it worked. Are all these boxes different? How comes it works for some people and not others.

    Why can't you go back?
    Which version do you want to go back to?

    I have tried going back 4.2.2 and tried using an update.zip from my previous update which worked. The situation is that the device does not boot, it does not see my SD card and when I try to flash it there is an error message.

    I think it might be the time to call it a day with this X5. I will look buying another device.

    Thank you Villa and Higgs.
