Wow! this is amazing how fast you turned this one around Oma.

Any idea if the HDMI output supports true 1080p or is it only a case of 600 lines that are upscaled to 1080 lines?  Reason why I am asking is that I was looking for a TV stick for one TV but if this can play 1080p it is all I need (and I get a screen for the same price). 2.0 audio is fine for TV speakers.

This is not a stick, it is a tab with HDMI 1080p ;-)

 

And no, one cannot buy it yet.

How do you use CWM on a tab without volume buttons? 

 

Please ignore this question. I see the later versions also include touchscreen. Probably need a pen or something since the print is so dense and small that I am having difficulty to read it on my "retina" display. My finger is way too thick

The antutu score with such a low resolution screen kind of indicated that it is a T. Good Wifi performance is not surprising - it has a plastic case and therefore does not hide the antenna behind aluminum.

– latest kernel weng #17 preempt 14.03.2014
– device spoofed as Nexus 7
– native init.d support

Can this ROM be flashed/ported on a Pipo S1 Pro? It's a quite similar device, despite the fact that lacks a volume button and back camera

Great job!!!

I buy this tablet in tinideal and i receive it in a few days, one of the reason to buy was this rom and know that are people like you work to improve user experience. (I read in other topics the problem of compatibilities with most apps in google play and i think you resolved this with "device spoofed as Nexus 7")

When come i install this rom quickly. If you want some testers in future tell me.

Sorry for my english, i am spanish :SS XDDD

Hi,

I've just got the tablet and reflashed it with build 3.2. Everything seems fine except that I  just noted that if I keep the tablet in portrait orientation the buttons in the bottom do not work. Same thing with the stock launcher and with Nova Launcher. When I turn the tablet into landscape mode, everything works fine. Is it normal? 

I just flashed the firmware but didnot flash the recovery yet. Not sure if I need it.
