Ive not used this but as were on (4.1 JB) and this root is for ICS / JB, it should work.

Easy way to backup install titanium backup from market.

After you've backed up the apps then browse to titaniumbackup and copy the contents to a folder on your PC

Flash your u18GT with new rom,

Reinstall titanium and copy the folder back to titaniumbackup

run titanium and tell it to restore app+data.

Why not get ver 1.06. its the latest.

It correct more flaws. Since you are just about to upgrade firmware, you should go for the latest.

 

And by the way, this firmware (kasty) automatic root your cube tablet while it update your firm ware.

 

BUT sometimes, busybox or superuser is missing , simply download them free from play market. Its already rooted by the time you complete your firmware upgrade with Kasty version of the firmware. Which is easily downloaded as opposed to the original supplied by cube. They send you to a Chinese forum and takes centuries to be able to download and half way through downloading their firmware, you get cut off and you start over. never end.

(maybe someone would asked) How do we know if superuser is correctly installed after auto root ?

Its when you have installed apps such as Titanium Backup, (apps that requires root access) and run it,   you waited  for a while but was not asked to for"(add)granting root access  to the apps". and nothing happen at that point of time and not seem running.  In situation where and when superuser and busybox are installed correctly&properly, when on first run of an apps's that requires root permission,  a box would pop up, and We would have to manually grant it the permission to access the root of the system . (one time action).  Once permission given for the apps to access to system's root of the tablet. Things would work fine. The apps would be given permanent access to the tablet's system to function effectively :)

As for this cube tablet, its hardware , the tablet it self is fine. Sometimes some set having charging problem, its usually due to charger that supplied with the set having some problem or faulty. Simply replace it or use alternative ones with 5 Volts and 2 amperes or higher amperes(current) charger would solve the problem. (like mine :) )

 

The firmware offered here works great and downloading is a breeze as long as you have the forum membership.

 

I must add that since i have  replaced the faulty charger that came with this Cube U18GT2 dual core Rockchip rk3066 tablet. Everything work flawlessly. Connection via HDMI to BIG TV is quite clips clear if you have a clear version video source.

I downlaoded full HD videos from youtube, using youtube via online site, played on the set. its really nice picture quality and NO lag.

 

For a low cost dual core tablet, this is one of the better ones.

Also here in this forum you always get updated firmware periodically.

Best of all, downloading the firmware here is a breeze compare to that cube website - you like bites the bullet - trying your luck - whenever and everything you try to figure out how the hell to download their firmware. If you tried you would know and probably agreed.

 

As usual, I just hope people reading my post is able understand what I am trying to say above and it helps someone.:)

 

And sorry for my bad English.:)

 

Cheers and Best Wishes.

I think the newest upgrade has a slower clock multiplier. i might backup my data and give it a whirl.

but first ill run antutu and note its score, then run again on new rom.

The kasty firm ware already root this cute during the process of upgrade.

Why is there another need to double root the device ?

Also the link you posted seem to be applicable for SONY mobile  xperia series ?

A little confusion here due to  link posted but doesn't make clear to visitors.

Not all are very firmware of apps incline :)

I note what you said about the clock thing. It really seem like when before upgrade to the latest firmware, the cube scored over 12,000. after latest firmware update. I tried a few times its at just 11,000 +

I also wonder f its due to the latest firmware affecting the clock thing.

Please update us in due time.

Thanks.

someone asked how to root, and were told already that the firmware roots the device, there is no need to 2nd root, if you have installed katsy firmware.

or this  http://www.oneclickroot.com/ which is probaly the better way to go.  but as for most of us i just trashed everything and loaded the rooted kasty firmware, when i got the device.

 

and 11352 now on antutu benchmark. why it fluctuates i dont know.
