Recently, Beelink has posted the latest firmware update (v201P0) for GT1 Mini 2 Amlogic S905X3 TV Box. This firmware solves a couple of the existing issues, specifically utilizing all four cores.
We’ll need the following:
1. Latest firmware update (v201P0). Download here.
2. USB_Burning_Tool v188.8.131.52. Download here;
3. USB male to male cable;
It’s quite easy. I’m pretty sure every one of us has some old USB cables that we don’t use anymore.
I used some very old Motorola and Nokia cables.
Cut the cables and leave only males ends with about 20cm tails.
Then, cut the singles wires and twist them by colors:
Now install the USB burning tool and start it as Administrator.
Load the already downloaded image file:
Wait for the tool for checking the image:
Now press START and plug the USB on your PC. Hold the other end of the cable in one hand and the power plug on the other hand.
You need to plug the cable simultaneously in the USB and plug port:
In the Brushing tool window you’ll see that the boot is erasing:
Wait to flash the whole parts of the image:
And in about 5min you should see a success message:
Unplug the cables, plug HDMI and power cable and wait for another 5min.
Congrats! Your Beelink box is upgraded and ready for use!

All is working great!
During the tests, I saw max temp of 52-53 degrees Celsius, but take note that I made thermal mode that lower about 5-10 degrees.
I will keep you updated for future firmware upgrades.
