    I've removed the link to the pre-routed 002 kk from minix. Please use the latest KK for better stability and compatibility.

    where i can check the firmware version?

    i install the X7 Kitkat 240 ( june 4th 2015 ) but never the NEO X7 010 firmware (30th April 2014)

    what the difference?

    010 is Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
    240 is Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

    Looks like an incorrect fw somehow. Can you do a fresh one?

    Hi,
    I have reverted my Minix X7 back to the official firmware version 010, 4.2.2 which I feel is more responsive and the latest you tube apk live streams are working now without problems.

    I would like to root my Minix x7 device to install adblock but the root/unroot links on this page seem to be broken or the files have been removed.

    Can anyone please help to provide a link to the root/unroot files please.

    Thanks

    I've updated my signature. If you just need to root or unroot, try to use the X Series (OLD Versions) links.
    garolfe and Villa like this.

    Thanks Gufone but the links to the root/unroot files for the old x series do not work anymore, I'm getting the 404 message those files are not there anymore.

    Does anyone else have the 2 small zip files which I could download please.
