    Hello guys
    I need help with the drivers. Because my computer cannot detect my Minix Neo X7 box, and I canot use the RKBatchTool.

    I installed the drivers using the RK_Driver Assistant. Also tried manually, giving the computer controller the path to the folder that contains the drivers. And it's the same result: question mark.

    [​IMG]

    When I use the Batch Tool, to flash the firmware, it simply does not recognize the device (the square doesn't turn green, it's all just grey).
    And, another fact, few minutes later the computer makes that "sound" when you disconnect the device, and you cannot longer see the device in the device manager, like the image shows.

    Please help me, I really want to upgrade to the newest!
    Thanks

    For the ones using Windows 10, to get the drivers working for the full image load using Rockchip tools , create a file in notepad let's call it "fix.reg" (extension "reg" is important, the name does not matter) and copy these lines in it:




    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\220700000222]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\220700060222]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\220700100222]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\2207292C0100]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\2207300A0100]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\2207300B0100]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\2207310B0100]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00



    Save it, double click on it, and accept all warnings. Now the drivers provided in first post will work. It should work for 8.1 also (did not try it).

    Works in Windows 10 x64 Tried it updated my NEO X7). Did not try it in 8.1 but should work if you have all updates. This will work for a number of Rockchip CPUs, for X7 you should need only one of the keys nut not sere which one exactly. You could also edit the registry yourself but is easier to create a file.

    If you want a long explanation why it works is here: (can not post links, use Google) is on blogs msdn



    Best would be if the manufacturer would fix the problem. There are two ways: Fix the cause (not feasible as there are a lot of chips out there with the enumeration problem).

    Second, the manufacturer could add in the driver installation ".ini" file the keys itself and set the registry during installation (there is a very easy way to do this in the INI). The manufacturer knows which chips (VID/PID) are affected, and can solve the problem in the background. I speak of the driver ini file which is part of driver installation not any other configuration files.

    As a note try to use an USB 2.0 port on PC did not try with an USB 3.0 one.(it may work with USB 3.0 also)

    Settings, About, System updates

    Or download Full OTA, rename it to update.zip
    Full OTA:
    http://www.minixforum.com/downloads/download.php?file=x7-rk3188-OTA-240.zip
    ONLY For people that have online OTA errors when system was tampered with.
    Rename to "update.zip" and copy it to your internal flash.

    if kodi 16 final resolves sound issue in JB 4.2, i'll stay with JB, or else i'll upgrade to 250 (for me JB is still better than KK)

    I don't think there is an Automatic update, that shouldn't happen!
