    No, they are different ROMs. You have to flash the full image x7mini-rk3188-240.rar. The download link is in the first post of this thread.

    Hi,
    I have started using this rom and it looks great.. I do need however the capability to root and use SuperSU as the su app.. I have found other root update.zip files but none that use the SuperSU app or that work with this app..
    Can someone please assist..

    BTW I have seen the other root access link.. It does not user SuperSU.. I need SuperSU for MDM..

    [ROOT][How To] Root, Unroot, System mods (no CWM / no PC needed) Does NOT use SUPERSU

    Just use my files from the thread you mention (or from the 240 thread first page). This will install superuser and not supersu (as I don't like it). Just install supersu from the playstore and remove the superuser from that app.

    thank you for your reply, villa. so the only way to update my 4.2 android to 4.4 is to do a fresh install? when do you think the offical release for ota will be for neo x7???

    Its impossible technically to do an OTA update from 4.2 to 4.4. The only option is to flash as above. You will then have OTA updates for any further 4.4 firmware releases.

    Forcing users to find an old OS just to upgrade a device that is still on the market is bad marketing.

    When a product is still selling and in production, the updates and support for this product should also include the latest operating systems. I purchased the minix neo mini 7 less than 1 month ago. With big surprise I found out that in order to upgrade the device firmware I must own an operating system 3 generations old if you include windows 10. I have a system with windows 10 and 1 with 8.1 64bit. After a long of searching and reading I discovered there are no USB drivers that work with my os
