Guys, we are trying to put more effort to teach you guys how to flash the firmware, we hope to share more information about mini pcs, and try to help everyone who buy mini pc from our site.
Here is the information i take from MInixforums, but i test it by myself,and make this easily instruction. If you don’t know how to flash firmware with RKBATCH TOOLS or you can’t install driver in your windows 8 or 64 bit system, then you should consider to flash firmware via CWM recovery, it is really easy.
Ok, here is how to do that.

Then connect with your USB mouse, you can operate this menu.
2 After you install the CWM Recovery in your NEO X5, then you can go to the following link to download the firmware:
3 copy the download zip file to your SD Card again,and then power off your NEO X5, and then go to find a paper clip , press the recovery button,and at the same same press the power on button on neo x5, the system will reboot to CWM Recovery, click Install zip from SD Card,Select the .zip and wait.
