Cube has just released an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Cube U18GT2.

Cube U18GT2 official firmware version 1.03    U18GT2_V1.03_4.1_20121124.zip (2012/11/24) 

Android 4.1 build: rk30sdk/rk30sdk/rk30sdk:4.1.1/JRO03H/20121122.205441:eng/release-keys

Linux Kernel: Linux version 3.0.8+ (eyes#0001@eyes) (gcc version 4.4.3 (GCC) ) #290 SMP PREEMPT 2012-11-21 17:13:52 3:47

 

This is a major upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Google Translation of Cube version history says this firmware changed the following:

Updated to Android 4.1 system;
aging game crashes to amend the part of the machine;
awakened not some machine screensavers.

 

Here is our custom rooted firmware version of the Android 4.1 JB based on official Cube version 1.03

Features:

- root with SuperSU version 0.96 (free version)

- writable /system partition

- removed most Chinese and unnecessary applications

- increased space for application (/data partition) to 2 Gb.

 

Rooted custom firmware for the CUBE U18GT2: kasty-cube_u18gt2-41-103-rooted.zip

Using Rockchip Batch Tool version 1.5 to flash the firmware.

 

Please report any problem with this firmware, I can't verify if this custom firmware works properly as I don't own a Cube U18GT2  to test it.

That's strange, I check the build.prop and it's configured for English language and region:

ro.product.locale.language=en
ro.product.locale.region=US

I'll see if there are other settings...

yup you have english, but when you go to type text you get no keyboard :) , so basicly cant enter wifi details or anything else :(

under keyboard and input methods it has default, but the default seems to be none.

on apps running, it has input devices, which is blank with nothing set.

Easy, download a keyboard apk, conect via USB copy the file to the tablet, run apk installer and install the new keyboard

Thanks, ill do that, its not normal for the keyboard to be missing right ?

if this gets updated i would love to download it again, the chinese on the original tablet is annoying, and the bloatware as well

HI,

 

I just got one set of U18GT2 too. Its the dual core Rock chip 3066 version.

 

Antutu test done - 1600Hz CPU. scored quite high bench marking.

 

But I don't under stand why the charging  seem to flip flop out and in.  Charge and disconnected than charge again....continuously on off...  Than I do a search online and found one video on you tube concerning the charger problem.  I follow it. Cut of the rubber front of the charger. One small extended rubber head. And after doing some adjustment, the charger become stable and properly connect and able to start charging consistently now.

 

In order to use USB charging it can be done. BUT its from USB(PC or other 5V DC source) power out but still connect to the charging socket. The input will have to be connect to the unit's charger socket. I also found that the  included charger have 5 Volts but very small ampere.(current).  As the set's battery is around 3000AH. It would certainly take a long while to charge up the battery.

 

Is there a new firmware for this Cube u18gt2 (rockchip dual core set)?

 

Is the cube U18gt's firmware V1.4 and v1.5 compatible to be sue for u18gt2 ?

 

Any help would be very much appreciated. Also although can access Play market - its not full market and can't find whatsapps and a few other apps.

Any way for us to access real full play market?

 

Thanks

 Yeh its a good chipset.

yeh thankfully my charger didnt have that issue.

It would certainly take a long while to charge up the battery.

 my son has the black u18gt2 and he says it takes ages to charge via usb.

 

Is there a new firmware for this Cube u18gt2 (rockchip dual core set)?

this is the latest firmware, its just missing a keyboard, which can be solved by downloading a keyboard.apk file, and then its fine, ive had it on mine for about 2 weeks and it runs like a dream.

 

Is the cube U18gt's firmware V1.4 and v1.5 compatible to be sue for u18gt2 ?

unsure i know my son has the elite black u18gt-h (still a elite dual core) and its got a whole diff firmware, but it comes with no Chinese bloatware,  seem to run exactly as fast as mine, just diff UI look etc.

 

Any help would be very much appreciated. Also although can access Play market - its not full market and can't find whatsapps and a few other apps.

Any way for us to access real full play market?

 dont know i have the same issue, just know the rest from experience of having 2 of the same cube 1 white, 1 black.

Thanks
