The Tronsmart T428 is an interesting piece of hardware powered by a Rockchip RK3188 based MiniPC. Unfortunately it had many firmware flaws so far, with stability issues (Netflix and other video application) and problems with hardware support (USB storage, webcams…) Finally, the manufacturer has produced a better update based on latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean system. We have tweaked the original firmware to remove unnecessary and Chinese applications, add root and better Google Play support.
