    NEO G4 108A Stuck on Boot logo

    Not to sure what happend. My G4 was on while uninstalling an APPS and then it just closed by it self. When restarting, it just stays stuck on the Boot logo (X). I tried the PIN reset but nothing is happening.

    Please help!!!

    Actually, my problem real problem was to have my Minix recongnize by my computer. I had installed the driver for it, but nothing happen when I was connecting it.

    The way this was solved was to hold and push the cable into the Minix just a bit harder and hold it. From there, my PC found my Minix. The contact was made.

    I installed the the Firmware 4.1.1 (G4_108_20131118), the best for Minix G4 and Voila...started everything from scratch!

    Hope this helps!

    I disagree, the latest 4.2.2.005 is the best, now my G4s looks and performs like my X7/X7 Mini !

    Does it perform better? I was told by the Moderator (KAR), that the best way to go was with the 4.1.1. Apperatly the 4.2.2.005 has issues with some programs like Netflix.

    Can you confirm how long you have been using this new version?

    Thank you

    The best version for the G4 is NEO G4-108A 6th FW Release (0730) it works better than any 4.2.2 version or other 4.1.1 ROM....

    My two cents..

    Prior to v005 F/W, the unoffical v117 was the most stable. v005 lets you use Minix Edition XBMC and CPU lock is disabled to use the G4's dual core CPU to it's maximum potential.
    The v005 F/W is probably the last and best F/W for the G4. I originally owned 5 G4s and now I still use 3 G4s at home and it performs flawlessly for XBMC. I have been using v005 since it came out in end of May early June. The update.zip version of the v005 F/W is no good, use the Rockchip Tool version instead.

    Best and surest way to install the Rockchip drivers is to plug the USB cable from your G4 to your PC while depressing the reset button and then plug in the USB cable. Open up Control Panel>Hardware>Device Manager and you will see Rockchip USB device near the top of the list, install the driver from there instead and the Rockchip Tool will turn green once the driver are installed and you are ready to "Restore" the F/W.

    I tried many time, but it takes over 8 hours and I get disconnected at the end.....Tried so many time with many different computers. So if someone has this on Dropbox or something...that would be great.

    Thank you

    I just tried it, downloaded in less than 10 minutes !
    Maybe your download manager is bad ?

    A week prior to this post the download from Minx was utterly broken, but for the Moment it seems to work.

    Ok,

    Just tried again. Are you using any type of download manager? Still not working and I'm trying from different computers once again.

    Thanks

    I used Jdownloader. It's losing the connection sometimes, but you can continue to download. Unpacks correctly and is flashable. If you tell me what image you need, I may be able to provide you with a stable download.
