WOW Load was normal and UNEVENTFUL. Formatting seems all proper, Bluetooth paired, Wifi worked, have not installed CWM recovery yet. Not really sure how to use CWM options with button controls on boot-up. If not known will experiment later with CWM, but right now have other priorities. CPU issues from first build seem to have disappeared. Have not checked OTG yet.
Thanxs Oma and Tom
Hi Oma and Tom,
First of all thanks for this excellent ROM, I have faced a roadblock in using radxa rock as an AIO NAS server and media-player. While trying to add my external "ext3" formatted USB disk drive to this ROM I am able to manually mount (via root ssh) the disk and browse it's content (as shown in the image below) but unable to make this work with any application in Android UI, even apps like "Root Explorer" are not able to see the disk-drive.
The USB Host Controller app simply fails to "Mount" the disk with "invalid mount argument" error. I have even tried other options like StickMount, ntfs Mounter etc. but all fail to load the disk.
Pls. help and guide.
Can you pls test this boot.img? http://crewrktablets.arctablet.com/?wpfb_dl=1679
Flash it via RKAndroidTool (tick parameter and boot).

Yes, use the parameter file coming with the build.
In KK builds the fstab is not longer in the system. So we need to touch the boot.img.

This one booted but the problem remains as it is, pls. find some relevant details. Also, If I mount using mount -t ext4 /dev/block/sda1 /mnt/internal_sd/ehdd it works but the mount is not accessible from android apps.

USB Host Controller Config And Error :
Worked on an oc kernel for the Radxa-Rock. Used the kernel built for the Oma cRom v1.0. The kernel as built is pretty much all we have. All I could manage was a 1.8 cpu, 1.92 was TOO unstable. The gpu Mali is set to run at 600 which seemed to give the best performance and the ddr seems to have a range from 800 to 1200 on demand ?? and a 670 (1333) seems to be the max and offers very little improvement. So basically all I could get from the build to change performance was to o/c the cpu to 1800h. Could be wrong, haven't had the opportunity, sources, or the personal help to build kernels until lately. This group working on RockChips is a good one.
The performance of the RK3188 is very good @ 1,6 GHz max. We have seen a lot of tabs/sticks/boxes with @ 1,4 GHz max. Some of them are unstable above 1,4 GHz, some of them might be RK3188T.
In any case our experience is the situations gets unstable above that limits. Taking into the small gain of the oc scenario into account we refused to implement additional steps.
Astralix is currently working on the 101 mainline kernel.

Basically came to the same conclusions, as built the kernel is pretty much all we have. Thanks for confirming my observations, maybe I am learning. Waiting for Omegamoon's 3.0.101, been trying myself but am running into a lot of scripting problems, one good thing though-- keeps me off the streets and out of the establishments of ill repute.
Latter my Friend.
