Discussion in 'NEO X8-H PLUS 003 firmware via MINIX FOTA' started by MINIX - Ken, Feb 6, 2015.
Which? FOTA or update.zip method.
Update.zip method worked.
I still cant't connect to the Minix via OTG connector, thus can't use FOTA.
Thank you again
You do not need to connect you device via any cable, just WiFi or ethernet for FOTA updates.
Is there a post describing the process?
When I try updating via setting->other->System Update
the system would always came back saying no updates.
Now I have installed version KOT49H.20150506, it showing HOT49H.20150207 is available, but I think this version is older than my installed version.
What did the first line of my post say?
the link provides RAR file with the image. Once I unzip the RAR file, I could not find the process for transferring the image to the Minix. Is there any documentation or posts which describe how you transfer the image to the Minix?
I am new to Android thus still trying to understand the various methods available to me.
PS you have been very helpful.
I think you are missing the obvious!
You use the Update app...
Prerequisite for receiving this update:
1.) Updated to firmware 002 we released before:
2.) No rooting has been done
3.) Check for update using this app:
For future reference...
How to flash the firmware image.
I have reviewed the posts on the links above. The only instructions on how to update is http://www.minixforum.com/threads/how-to-flash-the-firmware-image.116/ which defines the process of connecting to the OTG port on the Minix. When do this I don't get the message "6.) Upon successful connection the "Connect success" message will be displayed inside the application (picture 3);", i.e. I can't progress past step 5, this was outlined in my original post. I believe my issue is I don't have the correct cable. I have tried various combinations, see my original post http://minixforum.com/threads/official-003-firmware-via-minix-fota.4052/page-23#post-55016.
Are you speaking hypothetically?
I'm confused! You said you had updated to v002 and I thought you had now successfully updated to v005.
You said, "Thank you that worked perfectly."
Yes you are correct, I have updated to V005.
You asked me which method I used and I indicated the USB method, because I cant connect via cable for the FOTA method. You then said I can use FOTA via Wi Fi and Ethernet and I wanted to know what the process was. The links you provided then pointed back to original link showing update via the OTG port and cable.
Everything is working well, this inquiry was for future updates, where the USB method may not be provided.
After downloading, I am always promptedx with a zip error message. So troublesome.
You may not have enough storage space. Delete some data and try again

I just updated successfully to firmware 002 via USB. This update went fine, no problems.
Then I initiated a FOTA update (via new System Update app). An update was found, downloaded, and installation seemed to go all the way.
However, then the MINIX seemed to go for a re-boot, but the screen went to "snow" modus. The MINIX is not starting / responding anymore.
Any idea what is wrong and how I can get the MINIX back to working?
Hello, I am trying to do an FOTA update to 003 firmware using the System Update app, an update is found but when trying to download it I constantly get Network connection failed. Can somebody help me with this?
What is the Build number of your X8-H Plus?
Take a look here....
You can probably use Option 2. This will take you direct to FW009!
The build number is KOT49H.20141225 releases-keys. I updated to 002 firmware before this. Can I upgrade straight from 002 to 009 and have all the updates from all releases?
Yes, use Option 2.
Thanks, I managed to upgrade it.
It did not work from the first try, it got stuck in recovery mode while installing update, had to unplug the Minix and do it again, which worked fine this time.
i have a problem.
i updated to 002 manually.
i have try to update the new version via FOTA and i have a meesage:"network connection failed ". i tried all the day to update via ethernet or wifi and i didnt succeded. how can I solve this?? i will thank you a lot for help!!!
Read the posts above!
First you can also try clearing the cache and data for the System update app!
