Cube has released a new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Cube U18GT2, it looks like a re-release as version number is identical to previous 1.06 but now contains a new kernel.

Cube U18GT2 official firmware version 1.06    U18GT2_V1.06_20130106.zip (2013/01/06) 

 

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@lzhp-System-Product-Name) (gcc version 4.4.3 (GCC) ) #308 SMP PREEMPT 2013-01-05 17:42:08 6:00

 

Google Translation of Cube version history says this firmware changed the following:

Update QQ and repeatedly prompted automatically upgrade;     
correction WIFI disconnect can not automatically connect.

Here is our custom rooted firmware version of the Android 4.1 JB based on official Cube version 1.06

Features:

- root with latest SuperSU version 0.99 (free version)

- writable /system partition

- removed most Chinese and unnecessary applications

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

- included hackerskeyboard (a 5-row keyboard using full PC key layout)  as latest Cube update had regular non Chinese keyboard removed

 

Rooted custom firmware for the CUBE U18GT2: kasty-cube_u18gt2-41-106_rerelease-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.

I tried it and I found this firmware has a lower CPU clock, around 1400 MHz.

I prefer the 14/12 version.

 

EDIT: Sorry, I just found out the last version had also a maximum clock of ~1400 MHz. My bad.

I upgraded my Cube 18GT elite with U18GT2_V1.06_20130106.zip (2013/01/06) firmware.

I get "success" message however there is a problem. After the flash the screen isn't working - if I connect to laptop I get the screen with Turn on USB but I get no response from the screen.

If I turn on when not connected to laptop I just see the logo for a second and then its gone .. nothing further happens.

Can someone help please

I had the same problem, that my touchscreen stopped working. But after I reinstall the right firmware, it still isn't working. What might I have done wrong?

Yes, I did, and I also tried the update-option once to see the difference, but it didn't help. It is strange that even in Recovery-mode, the touchscreen isn't working. Where does the Recovery-mode normally get the drivers from?

Thanks for your help.

That would mean that if I would get the right kernel, it might fix the problem. Would it help to only flash the kernel that is included in the u18gt-s firmware? I still suspect a newer firmware version has a newer kernel with other touchscreen drivers, if it is a driver-problem. Only, no newer firmware version has officially been released.. Hm..
