    Can someone point me to the step my step instruction on how to perform this update, firmware and updates? I can't find it in the package and I don't want to go through all 37 pages of comments in this thread. =) Thanks!

    I have connected the device in Flash mode but Windows says it already has the best Driver. The Device manager give a flag with an error: device descriptor request failed minix driver
    When I try to update the driver Windows says it already has the best driver and I' not sure I can do anything. I did run the driver uninstall utility and then reinstalled using the same utility.
    I tried on two PC where I have not done similar things before, one win 8.1 and one win 10. Same thing with booth. Why can't Minix make things a bit more user friendly? I should be possible to update both firmware and software in much easier ways. Please help!

    No which device and which fw do you have (now) ? If you installed the latest with flashtool all fw updates further will come ota.

    I've spent months waiting for Win10 support and ended up figuring it out today. I searched and downloaded the rockchip batch tool from a separate source. That seemed to be the key. For what it's worth, I also did the reg fix and the config file editing found in this thread. To be honest, I'm not sure if all of it is necessary, but it worked for me.
    1. Get the package here.
    2. Download a separate source of the rock chip batch tool.
    3. Install the drivers from this package.
    4. (?)Run the fix.reg file as created from the instructions in this forum.
    5. (?)Edit the config file in the rock chip batch tool (from another source)
    6. Connect X7 and put into flash.
    7. Run the batch tool (from another source)
    8. If it connects with a green box, load the image from this package and click restore.
    9. Success.

    Before I did this, I tried replacing the usb system files but that killed my pc. Thank goodness for the restore functionality.

    After 240 things seems to work much better i general, but I can't detect any Bluetooth devices. Stuff that connected without problems with the earlier version. Anyone have any idea what issue might be at play here? Any help is appreciated.

    Hello everyone! :cool:

    Sorry but maybe I missed a part of what I have to install to update my Minix Neo X7.

    This is my situation:
    Model number: NEO-X7-216A
    Android Version: 4.2.2
    Kernel version: 3.0.36+
    Build version: rk31sdk-eng 4.2.2 JDQ39 eng.root.20131227.154530 test-keys
    Vendor software version: 2013-12-

    I downloaded the following updates:

    What and in what order I should install them?

    Does it lack something to install for proper work of the Neo X7?

    Thank you in advance!

    Is 240 stable and worthwhile enough to update from 010 or should I wait till 250 ?
    Don't want to update to 240 for my customer base if this is going to be troublesome.

    If you have a customer base, you should have a test unit to try a new FW. 240 works better for me than FW 010 did.

    I was not able to find any info related to Samba server. Is it sported with 2.4.0 and if so is there any link which describes the setup?
