    Note that updating the ROM will wipe the device!

If it goes pink your device is booted. You need to turn it off, then plug it in while holding down the volume down key (then it will install the drivers and go green).

Hi - I'm nt a complete novice to updating firmware - but I simply cannot get the gem7112 drivers to install properly on my computer.

I'm running windows 7 on an AMD 64 bit system if that's any help? I even tried a manual install of the drivers through add a device, pointing at the rockchip folder but to no avail.

Can you confirm it is the volume down side of the button I need to be holding down? Maybe I am releasing it too soon or too late?

I found the SD card method on the get satisfaction site and it worked - so thanks - but I'm all set now
