  4. Dear Eric,

    Thanks for the detailed explanation.

    I have a driver problem. Moborobo fails to connect to the X7. I did all settings (usb debugging, unknown sources, mass storage, etc.). Even I tried two different notebooks, one is Windows 7 64 bit with USB 3.0 ports and the other is Windows 7 32 bit with USB 2.0 ports. The problem is the same… Flash mode is working, update the fw. Also when I run the TPSparkyRoot, it can not find the device. What can I do?

    Thanks a lot.

  5. Hi,

    thanks for your help sofar. After following all instructions, the rockedship flash does not recognize my Minix and I don’t see the green square..:-( Please advise
    After I push the recovery button and power button it does not turn on.


  6. Dear,

    i worked hard to get it done and I made progress. The Rochchip batch tool turns into the color pink instead of green. Somehow my Minix x7 don’t react on pushing recovery and power buton at the same time. Is simply turns the divice off. Then I have to go back to settings and connect it to the computer again.

    please advise how I can connect rockchip batch tool with the minix.
