I bricked with my X96 MINI while flashing the update firmware using an SD card. I used Burn_Card_Maker to make an SD card for the update, but unfortunately, the X96 Mini LED turns red and the box does not boot, then I try to use the PC USB_Burning_Tool and my X96mini is detected by USB_Burning_Tool

But It stops at 1% with ]--[0x10103005]Romcode/Initialize DDR/Download buffer/Read item data failed
Error in all versions of the USB burning tool

Only version 2.0.1 shows 1% low_power failed and the log is as follows

Code:
[16:34:08 696][HUB1-4][Inf]--Start burning...
[16:34:09 211][HUB1-4][Inf]--------------ERASE BOOTLOADER------------
[16:34:09 211][HUB1-4][Inf]--    low_power
[16:34:13 368][Global][Inf]--User click refresh button
[16:34:39 212][HUB1-4][Err]--IOCTL_BULK_CMD_Handler ret=-116,bulk_cmd=    low_power error_msg=libusb0-dll:err [control_msg] sending control message failed, win error: The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request.

One thing I have not tried yet is the short NAND method because my box is shown on the USB burning tool.

Please help me to fix this device. I have tried many ways to flash the ROM using USB burning tools and sd card maker tool but no succeed so far.

I've had the same problem. The problem is the usb port or a wrong rom Image. I have 8 ports And 2 works. And the image must exactly for your prozesor. S905w, S905x and other have been installed. Try your luck here forum.freaktab.com/forum/tv-player
. But it also exists at xda developers firmware for x96 mini

Cable

It is looks like your cable is not strong enough. try a new male to male cable.

Try to load your firmware in the burning tool software.
Then press START and after connect your box to computer with A-A USB cable

I am doing exactly the same thing you said, loading the firmware, press start then connect the A-A USB cable. but it failed by flashing at 1% with the error

[0x10103005]Romcode/Initialize DDR/Download buffer/Read item data failed

In the log file, it shows:

[18:16:12 938][HUB1-3][Err]--Read item data error, code -1
[18:16:12 938][Global][Err]--DDR_ENC.USB

[18:16:15 579][Global][War]--User click stop button

Please help me to unbrick the x96 mini.
Thanks

If you are getting a low Power fault are you connecting the power source while you were trying to flash because maybe that's needed as well

I had the exact same issue with an x96 mini that I just got. There was nothing I could do to get past the 'Romcode/Initialize DDR/Download buffer/Read item data failed' error. Tried different cables, different computers, win 7, win 10, win xp. They would all give the same result. I think the newer x96 minis are locked some how so you can't flash anything on it. I couldn't even boot libreelec or coreelec off of an sdcard. That's why I tried flashing atxperience and that's what bricked mine.

In the end I ordered a new box and won't try to flash it.

Hi I have the same problem.

I bricked mine while trying to install magisk because I lost the faulty root that the box came with while trying to fix it with kingroot but magisk just made it worse.
Were you able to get past the error:- [0x10103005]Romcode/Initialize DDR/Download buffer/Read item data failed

I'm struggling with the same problem. I found what may be an alternate image for the 1GB/8GB hardware.

T95R-905WB-1G8G-TW00023-R1648.zip - I can't post the link for this, but if you google it, you can access the cached version of a page that has a link to a google drive archive.


I have the 2GB/16GB version, so this doesn't work for me. I end up failing with a NAND error furthing into the programming. I'm still looking for a way to get my box working again - another image or a way to change the RAM/ROM spec in this image.

I hope this is helpful to you.

I have the same problem. Here is the story:
I bought X96 MINI Amlogic S905W, 2GB/16GB, Android 7.1.2. It worked fine one week. Then just stopped to work. The problem is when I plug in the power cable, only the red light is on and the device is dead. The seller told me I have to try pressing the AV reset button 1 - 2 minutes with tooth pick to reset the device. Nothing. Then the seller said I have to flash the firmware with USB burning tool. I tried with two different versions of USB burning tool (2.1.2 and 2.0.8) with several .img files. But every time I get this error, that is discussing here. I cannot find any solution. I still don't want to disassemble it, because it's new ...
By the way, is there any other procedure to "wake up" the device, without flashing the firmware?

I have the exactly same problem. Flash always fails with read data item failed error in my bricked tanix tx3 mini with all the roms I tried so far. Is there any way I can flash twrp in this device? I made a backup in twrp before i started the process. I was able to flash atvx rom only once with erase bootloader unchecked. Since then I am not even able to enter recovery. Device gets connected in flash mode but always fails with read data item failed.

I have a Mega link for that T95R ROM you mentioned. If anyone needs it just inbox me...I'm not sure if I can post links

---------- Post added at 11:36 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:32 PM ----------

For anyone with the CLONE x96 mini 1gb/8gb...
This here is the ONLY rom that flashed and worked successfully for me! In hosting it in my Mega account. I hope this helps a few people here. Again this is ONLY for the 1gb/8gb clone x96 mini. I hold NO responsibility for any damages caused.
