    Which firmware version does your X7 have?

    If it is pre KitKat (CE210) then you need to download this...

    Download link (to be used for a Fresh install or pre CE210 versions)
    http://www.minixforum.com/downloads/download.php?file=x7-rk3188-240.rar
    (drivers and Flashtool included)

    WARNING!! WARNING!! WARNING!! NOT EASY TO GO BACK TO 4.2!!
    (You need to use RK flashtool, do not try to flash it like an OTA update.zip !)


    Then follow this tutorial...

    Rename to update.zip and copy it to internal SD and the system will detect an update. If it doesn't then reboot and it should detect it immediately.

    Hi guys and thx for this update! Finally I really use this device.It stays at least two years on a shelve since yesterday when decided to have a look on it.I found your upgrade and manage to switch from 010 to 240 thx to you everything working smoothly. The only question I have is how to get 1080p on YouTube,now the maximum resolution I get is 720p. Best
