    Hie All! Really needed help badly. I accidently use the rename update.zip file which is the Finless Bob Rom. The rom is uncompatible with minix mini and only compatible with Minix X5. Intend to flash the kitkat rom though but got 2 same update rename files and therefore wrongly flash the wrong file.

    Pls help...been trying to find the answer for a week now and the device is on all the way for i know that it will auto-reboot but to no avail...

    Before that is running CWM recovery and already rooted. But now can't seem to boot back to recovery.

    Anyone have the answers pls help...Thank You..

    Tried to connect usb to usb on pc but device is not detected. If i power off and on again, the rom would activate but will stuck at the boot screen.

    Tried to power off and on while usb connect to pc but still the same.

    Make sure you are using the correct usb port on the minix and try a different port on the pc. Keep the reset button pressed with device connected and then plug in the power cable.
    Have you installed the drivers?

    I'm not sure what you mean by "vol+ plus power". Doesn't the X5 mini have a reset button?

    Load the firmware in the tool then press the restore button. After the firmware flashes successfully keep the minix connected and.powered on for 10 mins before connecting back to tv.

    (did you look at or read how to flash the firmware or are you just guessing every step )
