    Alternative Flash Method

    You don't have to flash the box via your PC, USB cable, reset button and Phoenix Suite.

    You can also a) write the stock factory image to an SD card with PhoenixCard V309, b) insert the SD card and then power cycle the box. It'll boot the image and flash it straight to nand memory. No cable, no reset required.

    Image to SD card = 7 - 8 minutes
    SD card to nand memory = 8 minutes

    Not the fastest route, perhaps, but avoids possible issues with drivers, USB and the burning tool.

    I've uploaded PhoenixCard here (new link):

    https://mega.co.nz/#!MQs01byL!nIIT17...et_oyxzibo-L6U


    The link below summarizes this "Production SD Card Method". Just make sure the "Product" option is checked before writing the image to SD card.

    Note: with our board, you do get a helpful on-screen progress bar during the flashing stage.

    Very cool!

    I am sticking this!

    I could not get the BRAIN DEAD stock recovery to use update.zip files. I kept getting some sys mount error.
    So this is the next best thing!

    Also I have a new TWRP recovery ready... I will be uploading it soon.

      A small find, inspired - as always - by your great discoveries, Bob.

        Why? Do you want me to move the download to the FT server or something?

          It's not a big deal, Bob, it can stay where it is.

            Either way my friend just let me know. If your trying to save space on your mega account I certainly can post the download here. Whatever works best for you.

                          Good to know it can be speeded up. Not sure I'd invest in a super-duper SD card for the occasional flash, but others very well may.
