    is this exactly the same fw installed as default in the device? or is a new build more close to the 002 fw of the NEO X8 and X8H?

    Some was shipped with the 17th November firmware, this one is 22nd November, which the factory is using now.
    If anyone needs access to recovery menu (the dead robot screen), it's recommended to update to this build. This is the only difference.

    Hello Ken,

    Two questions.

    1. My Plus has KOTH49H.20141114 build. The firmware you linked in this post seems to be newer. Is it?

    2. How can we manually update a new firmware on Plus? Is there a walktrough?

    Thanks a lot

    Hi, if you don't go to recovery menu, the 2 firmware got no difference.
    So you may keep using it for now.

    Does other people works this firmware?
    It doesn't work to me.
    I upgrading the device, and just get to the first MINIX logo , then the black screen...
    When will be a working firmware published?
    Because the device is so useless.
    I downloaded the firmware from here: http://www.minixforum.com/downloads/download.php?file=X8H_PLUS_stock.rar
    (MD5 checksum ok)
    (I'm not a beginner)
    Sorry for my bad english

    if I do flash this firmware is that the same as a restore to factory settings? In other words, will my box be the same as when I received it?

    I'm using Windows 8, and the USB burning tool doesn't seem to work for me on that machine. Is there an alternative method?

    The tool should have installed the device driver for you during its installation unless you rejected it.
    To enter the flash mode you need to press and hold both the power + recover buttons with the OTG cable connected to the PC.

    For me I open usb burning tool on PC windows 7 connect minix with usb cable connect power cable to minix hold in the reset button and power on the device keep reset button pressed until the driver starts to install automatically. Usb burning tool will then connect to minix after driver has installed.

    As some people got problem flashing this stock firmware, should i wait the OTA one?
    Or is this a different thing?

    is it safe to flash stock firmware with 2.0.1 burning tool instead of 2.0.3?
    i can't run 2.0.3 because of a 0xc000007b error but 2.0.1 works fine for me
