    One question, I would like to view the minix on a TV on other room. I don't know if we could activate the mirroring option (the TV is mirroring capable) or if it can be done through any app. The TV is also on the same LAN.

    Hey all,

    I've been using Wasser Firmware for about 2 years now, and suddenly i started having audio sync problems everywhere (Netflix, Youtube, and other streaming apps).

    Can I rollback to the official firmware as if it was a fresh install using the tutorials in the 1st page of this topic ?

    Sure you can.
    You need to flash using usb flashtool

    Hi newbie here,

    By using the RK flashtool, do I get a rooted device? I am looking for a way to get my x7 mini rooted but I can't find clear instructions.

    For root it is in Post #1

    First make sure you have updated to FW250!

    Available Updates: The old root/unroot updates are not compatible anymore with this release !
    Kitkat CE - root update
    Kitkat CE - unroot update

    To install the available updates (this is not for the Firmware!) rename the downloaded file to update.zip and place at the internal flash drive root, android will find the update and request you to install.

    When I try to use the batch tool to install this version (over v2.40), it reports the following error:

    <Layer 6-4> This operation didn't do,because of not supporting!

    I can install v2.40 image without a problem.

    Any idea? And yes, I think I have the right image: x7mini-rk3188-250.img

    Cheers, Rob.

    PS. Batch Tool v1.8 which is the same one as shipped with v2.40 firmware.

    Hmm, fixed it. The Batch Tool was showing the connected device as magenta. Disconnect the X7 Mini and reconnected using the paper-clip in reset hole procedure and it turned green. It then flashed without a problem (well is still flashing as I type).

    Later... it goes purple after a successful flash. Maybe you can't flash again without restarting the device into flash mode.

    Cheers, Rob.

    I hope someone can help me with going from Version 240 to 250, if there is a way to stop the OTA update I will keep 240 but the popup will not stop.

    Anyway I have tried to let the OTA 137mb update and flashing the full version to 250 and I always get the same error, the Minix green boot logo flashes quickly the small white logo will appear in double
    vision and then quickly go into that same boot loop.

    Where do I start

    I am an IT person so I don't have a problem with that. Is their a root tutorial. Also if the update is a service that only runs at startup or is it also triggered by a other serivce or cron type app?
