    In Recovery Mode.

    Tried to install Finless 1.1 Rombut booted to recovery. I cant seem to choose Apply updated from EXT. The remote doesn't work and I tried an usb mouse and that doesn't work. Any ideas?

    If I unplug at this time would I damage my box?

    Thanks for your input.

    Hello and excuse for the newbie question: I've seen that exists a Finless 2.0a ROM, too.
    It's for another specific device, right?

    The Finless 1.1 ROM is ONLY for MiniX NEO X8-H Plus, right?

    This ROM is based on 001 version of the stock Minix ROM or is a completely different ROM done ad hoc for this device?

    Thanks,
    ghale

    Hey,

    Really like your firmware, and was wondering if you got an ETA on the new version based on the 003 from minix?

    anyways, keep up the good work

    Can't really think why you would want to though.
    I just want to know. Also sometimes some things may act out and you may want to see if it happens on stock too. Just yesterday my minix with finless rom froze and I had to unplug it in order to restart it... it was the first time that I had to do that. I'm still chalking it up to a fluke though.

    My first observation is that the rom boots really fast compared to the stock rom. Don't know if this comes from mainline 002 since I never did upgrade to that one but I doubt it.

    I do have a question though (standard one I try to find out after messing with custom roms), how can I go back to stock minix? For example, if I wanted to install the stock 003 can I install it on my machine using the "USB burning tool" official method without issues? Since the recoveries are changed I'm not sure...

    The kernel checks these keys and if they are not right it wont boot.
    Because of this, the stock recovery will ONLY boot from NAND memory.
    It will not boot the stock recovery from SDcard!
    If you are on a pre-11/22 ROM then to flash my ROM you need the recovery.img I provide in this ZIP on Sdcard.
    The one in NAND memory pre-11/22 does not work (blank screen).
    What I have done is put a non-locked kernel in this recovery and in the TWRP recovery I provide.
    These work fine from SDcard or NAND.
    I'm on 20141122 NEO X8-H Plus stock rom can anyone tell me how to flash this roms? The notes up there seem to assume that we know the general process, which most people here do but I'm kind of starting to mess with my minix just now

    I'm familiar with changing roms on my phone but the minix is somewhat different. Any information would be appreciated!

It's a waste of space. Listen, once you start using custom roms, you would want to stick with them because they are better than stock roms. However, once you find a custom rom that works for you, you don't have to update your rom every time a new one comes out, lol. A lot of us do it for testing and know how to restore back to their old rom if they don't like the new one.
    StanTek, Thanks for the info...

    Haha

    Just wanted to motivate him some more. Would maybe be nice to have 100-200 users donate 1$ a month?

    Get well soon
