    I will start by saying I use windows 10.


    Now...I was trying to update my never before updated Neo x7 mini but...

    Using pc usb connection gave no green box in the BK batch tool (tried installing the drivers but pfff.....)
    In fact I hear the usb connection sound but a few secs later I hear the disconnection sound and it goes
    back on and off eternally until I unplug the cable.
    USB connection option in minix settings is enabled as well.

    Using sd card and usb stick and copy the files into internal sd root was not successful because the files
    were not valid update packages as the device said after I said yes to the update prompt.
    I mention I didn't forget to rename to update.zip.

    Direct download to internal sd was a failure too (again copy to root and rename to update.zip).


    So...What is wrong with this thing?
    It powers up, loads and works fine, reads through usb or sd, downloads and runs everything but I can't
    update it and there is no official information from minix.

    Is there a way to flash it using a usb stick?

    Please guys help me!

    I'm trying to connect my Minix X7 to my Windows 10 computer. It can't read the driver of my Minix X7. How do i proceed then?

    Hi, yes i did.

    Put in the pin and then switch the device on into Flash mode. However, my computer signals there are problems with the drivers.

    For the following instructions, I don't really get it. Create file in notepad, where? Sry I'm a bit noob here.

    Hint: For Win 10 users :

    For the ones using Windows 10, to get the drivers working for the full image load using Rockchip tools , create a file in notepad let's call it "fix.reg" (extension "reg" is important, the name does not matter) and copy these lines in it:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\220700000222]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\220700060222]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\220700100222]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\2207292C0100]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\2207300A0100]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\2207300B0100]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\2207310B0100]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00

    Save it, double click on it, and accept all warnings. Now the Drivers will work. It should work for 8.1 also (did not try it).

    Create the file using Notepad on your PC. Save it it where you can find it, in Documents for example. Then you double click the file and because it is a .reg it will install in to the registry.

    Thxs for the advice. I tried doing so. Installed the registry. But still, the Win 10 doesn't read the device driver =(
