The standard firmware images from Pineriver don’t support the flashing via Livesuit.
But, after flashing the Mele A1000 firmware, Android 2.3 I noticed that I got a new flash driver installed, when I plugged in the MiniX again, and also VID_1f3a_PID_efe8 as a new device. Update the driver via device manager, with the one in UsbDriver (NOT usb_driver).
The only problem now is, it says: the device doesn’t start. Maybe this is a 64Bit problem, as Livesuit is reported to be picky about 64Bit systems. Going to try on Win32 later.
See part 3 for what is really going on.
