Hurray, I finally figured out how to boot custom roms, even those intended for MK802 on the MiniX. The only thing you need to know is how to trigger RECOVERY mode. Normally, this is done via a hardware button on the MK802, but the MiniX doesn’t have one.
It can be triggered via an exploit, that fails to boot to the normal flash, and therefore enters recovery. We can use this recovery to format the MiniX and write a new image to it’s NAND.
So, take this livesuit trigger img, flash it with Phoenixcard to a microSD, and put it into the MiniX. Power up and wait 5 minutes (nothing happens).
Then take out the microSD card, and start Livesuit. Livesuit will recognize the device and installs the drivers, look on Google for them “VID 1F3A PID EFE8″
Livesuit will ask to do a normal flash or format flash. I chose format flash.
I used Uberoid Beta 3 (which is old, but this is a proof of concept).
If it’s done, it displays a yellow exclamation mark in a small popup and shows 100% in a green progress bar. Start the MiniX and you have an Uberoid screen after 5-10 minutes 🙂
Only 1 USB port is working, the left one. Hopefully this can be fixed.
Plus it’s Android 4.0.3 instead of 4.0.4.
