How to make USB male to male cable for Beelink Brush tool firmware upgrade

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:

  • Red with Red;
  • Black with Black;
  • Blue with Blue;
  • White with White;

Before starting upgrade take note that ALL data will be erased!

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:
