    So how do I activate an OTA. I found a place where I should push a system update APP, but where do I find it?

    Not, it is always activated, when we release a new version it will be pushed to all clients and you will receive an update.
    In the Setting you can check for an update but no update available now.

    How can i flash my minix x5 mini without the flashtool? Is its possible via fastboot or adb? Or is there a rom for clockworkmod with this?
    I am using Ubuntu...

    I downloaded x5mini-rk3066-OTA-240.zip and renamed as update.zip. When my
    minix x5 mini reboot, ask me if i want to update, and after that a
    message appears "not a valid update package"

    ¿Which package should I use?

    Check the MD5 Checksum of the file. Use this - http://www.winmd5.com
    x5mini-rk3066-OTA-240.zip - 3bf7b9f3ecd8e8ab17cad09a6a55d01b

    If it doesn't match then try downloading the file again with a download manager.

    Thanks you Villa, i check md5 of the file and was correct. Maybe I need a different version of my system to update using update.zip?

    You are still on Jelly Bean so you will have to flash a full system image.

    Download link (to be used for a Fresh install or pre CE210 versions)

    http://www.minixforum.com/downloads/download.php?file=x5mini-rk3066-240.rar (drivers and Flashtool included)
    x5mini-rk3066-240.rar - 44b141930e6490dde43e5dc258c14eea

    (You need to use RK flashtool, do not try to flash it like an OTA update.zip !)

    This is for the X5mini also!

    Hi new member here..
    The firmware was stating something from 2013?
    Tried to flash to the latest firmware so that I could put Kodi on it for my son
    Got drivers installed followed instructions and get an error after flashing
    Whats the best way to go?
    Win 7 pc
    After flashing failed the first time it came up a prompt for me to format G: which I declined
    After trying to flash again this came up.
    Have also checked the md5 of download and all is well.

    I am wondering how do I even begin, since I got the Minix Neo X5 I have not been able to upgrade the firmware, and worse, I am on a Mac Environment not even Windows..... Can anyone point me in the right direction to start, or should I just stick to stock firmware..

    It was loaded with success thanks to the new version. But I can not see files such as smartphones. I installed Windows on a DCM file and no others

    I have flashed an X5Mini box with the 240 firmware, but I cannot connect to the box via ADB, neither USB or Network. The box is seen by Windows 7 and Mobo, but cannot see it using ADB. Are you aware of this problem, is there a fix for this?

    I am a new member and I need some assistance. I have two questions?

    The new firmware seems great. I have a question about some errors when loading the firmware, although they seemed to have resolved themselves and do not seem to affecting the device's operation. The errors are highlighted in the screen shot below. The USB also disconnected out as well as can be seen in the screen shot.

    Any assistance with these errors who be greatly appreciated. Do I need to be concerned? Everything seems to be working Ok. There were no errors on starting the MINIX update and seemed to start ok.

    Second question. How do I enable VPN on the devices? Can I use Hola? These questions may be simply a product of my ignorance

    Thanks in advance
