Hello to all, developers and users.

Up to now my CUBE U30GT2 with the kasty-cube_u30gt2-442-funromstudio_20140606-rooted7c_mu with the DJ Overclocked Kernel kernel-95kitkat_cpu1800_gpu768h_ddr600 is working more than fine. Antutu (v5) score is around 23.000 and the battery can provide more than 3 hours of 3D gaming (in sleep mode with WiFi off and muted sound the drop is less than 1% per hour).

Despite all this and the perfect up to now job of the developers, as far as we can see Android L v5.0 is on the way.

So my question is simple.

Is there any chance to see a firmware for our CUBE tablets?? Can we hope for a miracle??

Guess it's up to the chinamen, they make chinese roms which people from this forum translate and tweak and set it for download.

Possibly yes. First test build is alive. However, it is a long way to Tipperary

My question might be silly but i'm just an advanced user, not a developer or programmer.

How possible is to port a stable 5.0 firmware of other RK3188 tablets to the U30GT2?

Cube U30GT2 has RK903 wifi. So build will already run on the tab, using the JB kernel ;-)

Link see post #3.

Kernel: http://crewrktablets.arctablet.com/?wpfb_dl=818

As you are running KitKat (gen 2 loader), make sure you change the loader first, otherwise you will brick the tab.

Just been doing that upgrade thing and i used your kernel and the loader, but it only shows the crew tablets logo. What am i doing wrong here? 

Never mind it took 7 minutes instead of 4 to get to the logon screen.

 

tap 5 times on build in the settings menu to get developer options. 

 

One question, what videoplayer do i need since hw acceleration isn't working yet?

Vlc player didn't work here, so i used bsplayer with decoding experimental android 4 and up mode activated. It's quite doable watching a movie with bsplayer.

Hey maical, good to hear! Nice cheap tablet from ebay. I installed 4.4.2 06 06 2014 with overclocking. The chinese overclock version had random reboots. Is there progress in the lollipop project Oma?

Yes. Before changing between JB firmware (gen 1 loader) and KK firmware (gen 2 loader) it is essentiell to change the loader first. Otherwise the specific rknand.ko.ko will brick the tab.

ok thanks for help

i don't know what i'm doing wrong but have a boot loop on crew rktablets logo

i've changed bootloader to gen 1 with rockchip development tool, then i used rkandroidtool to flash image (loader unticked)

then another time rkandroidtool to flash the right jb kernel.img for cube u30gt2

what i've missed ?
