Rikomagic has recently updated the firmware for their MK802III Mini PC. According the the manufacturer revision history, this last release (2012/11/29) brings better compatibility with Hubs, and USB LAN adapters, it also adds new features to the MK802III, such as WiFI hotspot and a new Remote Control. While the stock firmware update comes rooted, we have brought some improvements such as latest SuperSU free version (0.99) to control the root access and extended storage space for applications with 2 Gb instead of the 500 Mb on the stock firmware.
Remote Control featureThis firmware is one of the first to offer a Remote Control feature for Rockchip RK3066 based devices. This function allows to control the MK802III Mini PC remotely from an Android device such as a Phone or a Tablet. This is done thru an Android application to run on the controlling device. There is nothing to configure on the controlled device (MiniPC).
The Remote Control application can be downloaded here: MK802_III_Remote.apk (2.2 MB)
(MK802 III Remote application version 1.1.0)
