    Try using a usb keyboard. An airmouse like the A2 lite will work as well. I don't think a bluetooth mouse/keyboard will work
    You need to have the usb keyboard plugged in before booting to recovery.

    I have a Rii i8 Mini Wireless KB/Mousepad with the USB dongle plugged in the back USB port- works a treat with OTA, Android & Minix XBMC

    My trouble is that there doesn't seem to be any 4K resolutions from the display settings. I'm putting this X8-H on a 4K tv and making sure that I have a 4K HDMI cable and that it's going into a 4K port but still it doesn't give me the option. Anyone know what's going on?

    I have the Minix X8.
    In the firmware update menu, it lists the current version KOT49H.20160324 release key.
    It says newer version KOT49H.20160328 is available.
    When I select the update button, it starts to download the ~ 15MB file but always stops eventually at 14MB.
    I have deleted the partial downloaded zip file several times and restarted the download process, rebooted several times. It always seems to eventually hang at 14MB download and says after awhile lost network connection.
    Thank you for any help/suggestions.

    You can't upgrade vía OTA only with sd method

    Bit late to the party but got some free time now so thought let's do this.

    Got a X8-H since around Jan/Feb 15. Over the years have tried updating via menu system but no update has ever shown. Wasn't too bothered as all worked fine.

    Anyway I'm posting in this thread as someone has had same problem a few pages back.

    Followed the guide to update to 009. My minix is showing connected in image burning software.

    When I select firmware file after a few seconds I get a pop up box saying "Parse burning iamge fail"

    I have tried running the software in backward compatibility mode for Windows 7 but still get the same error. I do not have access to a win 7 laptop.

    My box details are


    Android 4.4.2

    Build KOT49H. 20141112 release-keys

    Kernel version 3.10.33

    Any ideas. Thanks in advance.

    Have you checked the checksum of the firmware file? It may be corrupted or you may have the incorrect file.

    Thanks for the speedy reply.

    They dont match!

    Is it a matter of deleting and downloading again and then check again? I am using the link in the 1st post.


    Tried to download again 3 times but every time the checksum is different.

    Just to clarify I only select the iso file to check not anything else.

    The checksum is for the RAR file not the contents!
    Usually if the file can be unRARed then the files contained in the RAR are not corrupt.

    Just shut the laptop down so will try again tomorrow.

    I did try to flash the files regardless but still got the same error.

    Thank you for replying. Might have to ask around for someone who has windows 7 running.

    OK checksum matches.

    Unfortunately I still get the same error.

    What should the size of the img file show when selected in software?


    Had no luck at all whatever I tried. Googled the error which pointed at corrupt file etc

    Tried downloading 008 and worked first time. Installed and updated to 009.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Can some one point me in the right direction please. I was having issues with a streaming app with audio drop out quite regular through my lazyness i just stuck with it on my old firmware which was a beta test. I have no upgraded to this 009 version but still have audio drop out do i have a something set wrong or is this common. Is there a fix?
