Any chance there is an update zip file available that can be used with the rock chip flash utility? I was trying to flash other RK3328 firmwares to the X7 but only with mixed results. It is not dead as I can still flash to it. It just doesn't work right. I can get other firmwares to boot and use the remote and connect via ethernet (no wifi). But the USB ports are not recognized properly. I was able to flash the boot.img (from the 1.2.7 OTA extracted) to a Beebox firmware and got the USB ports to work but was not able to install any apks. The mico sd works but no success to recover that way. The reason for this whole scenario is that I couldn't use the Comedy Central app with the X7 at all. I figured it was probably a DRM issue so thought maybe a different firmware.... It may be an issue with the RK3328. I was able to load some apps on another firmware using the micro SD but same issue with the CC app. Also without USB I can't use the keyboard remote. I don't have the original remote. I have been able to load TWRP recovery as well but without any ROMs that's kind of useless. Got the whole kit and caboodle from fleabay at a decent price so futzing with it was not an issue. Any help or suggestions will be appreciated. Here's to leaping before looking! Thanks!
