  • That mean something is weong with dtb or recovery you use or try difreand sd card or pendrive (must be formated to fat32). Anyway that frezze its a sign that kernel and dtb are readed.
    Everything is possible if we work together!

      • Hi guys & lewy thank you for your efforts.


        I installed this rom on my Mini M8S II (V3.1_20160615 PCB) straight from a TF card and it booted without problems. Unfortunately there are some bugs that make my everyday use quite difficult and these are:

        1) Cannot click on some drop-down lists - the final choice after clicking is some random one. I have to use the cursor keys to navigate to a choice and press enter. Using the Microsoft wireless keyboard that has a trackpad.

        2) Cannot drag icons when on desktop (or bring them on desktop by dragging) so I can't make a nice desktop with my favorite look.

        3) I tried to go back to original rom using update.zip but the device is no longer recognised as a "p212" but a "" (this is the error I get when trying to flash stock update.zip from recovery)



        Please let me know if you are planning to provide an update without bugs (will be happy to donate for an improved version) or please let me know how can I go back to stock rom.

        All the best,
        George

          I think I have the same problem like you - I need to go back to stock rom but can't. Can you please provide some instructions?

          • In the past i always used my windows 10 pc without problems, it was rocksolid. So after i flashed this rom, weeks later, a couple of days ago i tried to go back,
            because of the lack support for my lan and wlan.

            First i thought, it was my handmade usb man to man cable. Then i thought, because of flashing oreo the resetbutton is out of function. But last i took
            some old pc with windows 7. Sampled 2 or 3 times with resetbutton and bam, burningtool flashed my box finally.

            • So you did it with a USB cable. Can you please provide the pinout since I need to make one, too. If you could also share the steps of the procedure that'd be great. I have so far installed the software and the license.

              • Here you go for the cable:

                Flashing with burningtool was just normal like all
                the videos on youtube.
