I don't know a lot about the Android building blocks, but if it's a driver problem why don't they use the one from the stable version.

I found a bug in the stable version, it losing the homescreen shortcut just like the version 19.02.2014.

I found in a forum that this is a bug in Android 4.4.2, and will be fixed with 4.4.3.

 

But I still love it, I on plug the charger last night 22.00 and used it half a hour. And now 12 hours and 35 min later it still has 97% left on the battery.

I "solved" the icon problem. Wink

I install a program call Folder Editor, it makes a widget on the home screen.

And then you just put all you shortcuts in there, after restart the widget is still on homescreen. Laugh

When click on the widget a window open with your shortcuts and you can choose opening styles.Cool

Could you please post a new link to the Rom?   I am having a problem getting the linked Rom.  Me not understanding the language is probably the problem. 

 

   So do you think it is better to use 14.10.2014 Rom or the 201406006 Rom? 

Thank you and Regards,

-YS

you should download the chinese rom by your tab. Then it shows you an app to download which again download the file. This is the fastest way to get the rom. Then you have to flash your tab through rockbatchtool.

I tried again using a translator.  No luck.   I tried both the Download manager (10mb file)  and the direct download.   The download manager requires that a person have a Chinese cell phone number to finish registration.  I do not live in China.   The direct download says to try again later.   I been trying all day.  A different download location will be needed for the rest of us to get the file I guess.   Oh well.   I will try again another day.

The downloadmanager on your cube does't need registration.

This is great news mark6. Can you give us a step by step of what you did, including added apps so we can have it all on one post? It would be easier to follow. Mr. Nice would you follow up with anything else you might have added or done? Great work. My tablet is still in repair shop, but I cant wait to get it back to try this new rom!

Please include which kernel you are using in overclock too! How is heat on tablet with either kernel would be nice to know as well as which launcher works for you.

Thanks again for the work. Anything that makes the Cube keep on ticking is worth trying!

   I have tried it and it seems better than the 4.2.2 Rom that I was using before.  I do not have the same graphical glitches as before.  So that is good.  All my programs seem to work.  A few of them force close every so often.  That might be due to my programs being installed using a back up installer.   I am still testing programs.  I will be keeping this Rom for now. 

   I spent most of the day trying to figure out how to root the tab with no luck.  That is a bummer for me as I like using programs that need root.   I tried two Root programs One said it was already rooted, so I tried to unroot then it said it was already unrooted. hahah  The other appeared to work but did not actually give root.   My root required programs will not work with the stock install or my attempts to root.

   To get the IMG file I had to use my tablet to go to the download link provided.  I clicked the Orange button.  It installed a App.  Opening the App started a downloader.  Once the Rom was downloaded I transferred it to my PC and did the Rockchip batchtool 1.7 Restore.  That is it. 

 

ROM Details below.

FW Ver: 4.4.02     FW Time: 2014-10-29 12:52:26

Boot Ver: 2.09      Boot Time: 2013-12-16 14:52:00

Model:U30GT 2
Firmware version:4.4.2
Android Version:4.4.2
Kernel version:CUBE-eng 4.4.2 KOT49H eng.root.20140211.100632 test-keys

Kernel Version: 3.0.36+  tangy@tchipserver2#95  Sun May 4 15:50:58 CST 2014

Build Number: U30GT2_4.4.2_V2_141028

 

OMA,  If this is a different version than the 06 FunRom could you please do your magic on the rom?  I would be a very happy person.   Thank you for all your support of this tablet.  :)

Help with the download :-)

Forum: http://bbs.51cube.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=97337&highlight=u30gt2

 

Click on download button, the one with MB on it. (I just used my computer)

Then click on the button that is gray and it will download. If you click on the blue button a program pops up for download.(And you don't need it)

Rockbatch tool: power up rockchip batch tool, power off cube, hold volume plus while connecting to pc, keep pressing volume til rockbatchtool gives green light. Now you're tab is connected and you're ready for flashing the image file. Alternative flashtool:

http://www.marsboard.com/marsboard_rk3066_download.html

 

Rooting: install adb drivers: http://www.adbdriver.com

install root tool: http://download.wmshua.com/WMShuaSetup.exe

 

connect the tab, let the wmshua program fine out you've got a cube, then go to tab root/unroot and select down the second root option on the right. This might take some time. If is good the percentage drops from about 97 back to 90 for three times(three tryings to get it done), then it shows rooted and reboots the device. This is how i got my (overclocked) chinese 29102014 rom rooted.

Your a life saver!  thank you!    I installed wmshua and used your instructions above on a fresh install of the Rom. It rooted just fine.   

 

I have used this Rom all day and it is great!   Much better than the previous Rom I was using.  Thanks all.
