I know this is not the place to post and 4.2.2 ROM, but just for you all I decided to share.

I have made a 4.2.2 ROM containing the following tweaks and mods:

1. Rom based on the 1.04 release. In all my test this release is the fastest one

2. Kernel from 1.06 released with stock CPU, GPU and slight overclock of the RAM. Thanks to PRIMUS for the mod. No over- or under- voltage. Just RAM to 600 Mhz and less stepping for CPU and GPU. For me thats the best behaving kernel and best power usage.

3. PreRooted and SuperSU app for root access

4. Parameter file for 2GB space for user apps. I think we do not need more, because all large apps are able to be installed on SD

5. ! removed some lib .so files, because they contain trojan (ESET and Kaspersky confirmed)

6. Modded build.prop file for EN interface, removed ADB notification, faster scrolling and other minor stuff

7. Removed all china apps/crap

8. Edited some pictures for the rom

9. Minor stuff in adition

10. Last but important working TAKS/APP switching button. No need to go to HOME before switching to recent/other app.

Flash Using Rockchip Batch Tool v1.7 and RESTORE button!

Download from here:

Thank you for your work! First, I'd like to comment that I can't install v1.06 or iconBit rom in my tablet, it keeps rebooting and never completes the installation. So, I was very excited about trying your rom; I installed it and after several reboots the installation got completed, but it reboots very often. I know it is not your rom's fault; as I said, it happens with v1.06 firmaware an iconbit rom, so I have to assume is something related to v1.06 kernel. Do you have any tip to find out what is wrong with my U39GT?

Best regards

If you are shure that it is the Kernel problem, just flash kernel from 1.04 after the rom installation.

Download it from previous post and flash using RKDevelopTool_v1.37 by just selecting Kernel tick and select the image.

Maybe you have the U39GT-W version. Just and Idea

I wasn't sure, now I am it's a kernel problem. I did what you suggest (sort of, I used imgrepackerRK in order to put 1.04 kernel in your rom) and now it runs without issues.

I don't have the W version, I suspect my model is the earliest one. Perhaps that's the reason I can't install v1.06 kernel.

Do you think will be there noticeable difference in your rom's performance because of the 1.04 kernel?

Do you know if v1.04 kernel is compatible with the v1.06 firmware?

Thank you very much!!!

Yes, the 1.06 kernel is compatable with the 1.04 kernel BUT the 1.04 stock is faster.

I did make allot of test and thats why I did use the 1.04 stock for base for modding.

Now I am reading to do much more stuff for my ROM. Will release new version soon.

After more mods here you can downlaod v2. of my 4.2.2 ROM (again not 4.4 kit kat)

In addition to version 1 (see description of version 1 bellow) I have made the following changes/mods:

-Added US Browser HD. JUST TRY IT. You will see a HUGE improve  in the browsing speed and zoom/scroll speeds. Thats because UC does have its own rendering endgine and not using the stock build in in the Android OS. VERY SMOOTH FEEL!

-Added preinstalled usefull apps:
US Browser, ArcTablet Tools for install of CWM, Rom Toolbox, HD Widgets, Titanium Backup pro, MX Player, Nova Launcher with GMAIL notification, sEFix- entrofy Fixer

-Edited Desktop Wallpaper, Boot animation and BOOT logo. Hate the china letters. Not something fancy just slightly modded.

-For best performance, after install RUN sEFix and set value to 256. Make it run at startup

First version info:

1. Rom based on the 1.04 release. In all my test this release is the fastest one

2. Kernel from 1.06 released with stock CPU, GPU and slight overclock of the RAM. Thanks to PRIMUS for the mod. No over- or under- voltage. Just RAM to 600 Mhz and less stepping for CPU and GPU. For me thats the best behaving kernel and best power usage.

The kernel uses less steps for Clocking UP/DOWN. Not going to explain why it does make the CPU/GPU (real feeling) more snappy.

3. PreRooted and SuperSU app for root access

4. Parameter file for 2GB space for user apps. I think we do not need more, because all large apps are able to be installed on SD

5. ! removed some lib .so files, because they contain trojan (ESET and Kaspersky confirmed)

6. Modded build.prop file for EN interface, removed ADB notification, faster scrolling and other minor stuff

7. Removed all china apps/crap

8. Edited some pictures for the rom

9. Minor stuff in addition

10. Last but important working TAKS/APP switching button. No need to go to HOME before switching to recent/other app.

Flash Using Rockchip Batch Tool v1.7 and RESTORE button! If tablet is ON and connected to USB first select image, then press SWITCH button (wait for green square) and then RESTORE button.

Download V1 from here:

Great job vasil_d !

Can you tell me how you create bootanimation.zip ?

In fact, I saw the archive consist in :
- 1 directory with each part of the animation
- 1 file desc.txt with a lot of values.

Can you explain the following values, please :

1920 1200 10
p 0 0 part0

Last questions : is there a max number of pictures ? Is the .png format the standard or can I use .jpg or .gif pictures ?

Thanx by advance!

EDIT : Just come to test and backup my apps but I don't see the following apps :

-Added preinstalled usefull apps:
US Browser, ArcTablet Tools for install of CWM, Rom Toolbox, HD Widgets, Titanium Backup pro, MX Player, Nova Launcher with GMAIL notification, sEFix- entrofy Fixer

Yes, the archive consists of png files in folder and des.txt file.

In all roms that I have work on (htc, mtk, allwiner, rockchip) the images are in png format, so I have used this format. No idea can you use jpg for example, but does it metter at all?

About the content of the txt file:

1920 and 1200 are the image/screen resolution. 10 I have read that is the FPS meaning for 1 second to be changed 10 images.

p 0 0 I have no idea, but if I have to guess is offset from pixels where tho show pictures related to screen.

To test your zip, when creating the archive dont use any compression, and place it in /system/media with root explorer. If there is no animation on boot then something is wrong.

Hope I have answered  your questions.

How is the V2 ROM btw? Anybody tested it yet?

EDIT: The apps should be installed automatically.I will see if I have made some error when making the IMG fike. Idid not tested it today, because I have made that step/operation dozens of time. Will test it tommorow and write back.

EDIT2. I have an idea how to mod the wifi antenna. Will test the project this weekend and again if it does work I will post pictures.

This v2 version is the smoothest 4.2.2 custom rom I test ! Good job !

I just look again and there's none of your apps installed, only the stock ones. Where can i found these apps ?

EDIT :
Ok. Found "sEFix- entropy Fixer" on the Google Play and used as you said. Very smooth and responsive !

After a report from manu_katz that the integrated apps are not showing at all I have made them SYSTEM apps.

This way day should work/show. For that reason I have also increased the SYSTEM partition in the parameter file with 32 Mb (did place the APKs there). Now it is 544Mb related to stock 512 Mb.

Here you can download v 2.1 of my ROM:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4kmacwvOa1TY2U2ekJZeUZqMWM/edit?usp=sharing

Test and report back.

ENJOY.

Again thanks to all who helped me in any way to build this rom.

I am testing v1 rom; so far it's the best rom I tried, it runs smoothly and the battery behaves normally (with v1.04 official firmare, my battery ran out really quickly. I mean, 20 or 30% in 10 minutes).

But I have to install v1.04 kernel. I tried to do the same thing with v2 (use imgrepacker with v1.04 kernel) but I had no luck; after installing the tables kept rebooting.

Thank you for your great work!!!

Yes, I forgot to say it : the boot time is divided by 3 or 4 ! Great thing !

dinindourden, what do you mean by "the new apps keep crashing" ? No app runs ?

I mean some of the new apps you added to the system cannot be started. Rom Toolbox, HD Widgets, Titanium Backup pro, SEfix stops unexpectedly. Deleting with root app uninstaller, then reinstalling from play store works fine.

Thats expected behavior.

Thous apps should be not system apps. For unknown reason they do not install automatically as user apps when ROM is installed.

They should but they do not. Maybe it is the TOOLS fold but I use a Rockchip provided tool.

Any ways if they do not run just remove/delete them with ROOT EXPLORER in /system/app

Hi!

I have tried your 2.1 ROM.

First of all, Thank you very much for hard work, this rom seems to be the best rom on this gadget wich I have ever tried.

Furthermore, I have the same problem like the previously comments. Well, the integrated apps don't work. When I start them, they immediatly crash. And the application manager don't show that apps. One way to see them, if I list in appplication manager the all apps but in this way the app manager show every integrated apps in 0,00Mb.

Finally, This thing isn't made me fustrated. It's easy to clear them in a few minutes. I just telling you to help your work.
