Why make this so complicated and not make a zip file of the img? Most of us are gettting into recovery and can flash the ROM via it.


I started the update process and the screen just turn green and I can’t do anything, I tried to go to the recovery menu but nothing works


Can i just simply copy the zip file in I}USB and Update through Manual Update in existing Android 7 ? Using X96 mini


This firmware work for tanix tx-3 mini frist edition? S905w…


Can this firmware on this model having the same features just not be mini X96 Amlogic S905W 2GB RAM 16GB ROM


This firmware works for s905x ?


i have problem with the signature of this firmware: it Don’t work.


I have the version with 4Gb Ram and 32Gb storage memory. Does it compatible ? Thanks by advance


Happy to have an exotic box :-). Do you think it is a good idea to do the update ?


ciao, sei riuscito a trovare il firmware per la versione 4gb ram e 32 gb rom? io dovrei far l’aggiornamento perchè si blocca alla schermata di avvio. Grazie


Just to let you know, i’ve purchased a 1,99€ cable from Amazon and flashed the firmware following the instructions shown on this site and everything has gone fine! Thanx!


SDCard method using Burn Card Maker. USB card is ok, tested several types. Always get into the recovery menu.


Yes but is more unsafe, i’m scared of bricking my device. And also i’ve to buy the right USB2.0 cable type A to type A… I think i don’t have any other chance, probably my sd cards aren’t compatible with the device and have to use the PC method. Thanx for the answer!


Yes! I’ve the x96 mini 2/16, exactly the same shown on this article, i think the IMG file of Android 9 firmware linked to the article should be the right one to flash, by now i’ve the 7.1.2 installed on the device.
I was a bit scare because i’ve recognized that no one yet has installed it. Anyway i’ll try to updated it and hope that everything will go smoothly!. Thanx for the support!!! UR N°1
