3. change language and inputs causes system hang

I have flashed both version of this ROM and regret to inform you that they are useless due to serious issue. Immediately after starting to the system there is following message blinking on the screen: "Unfortunately, Google Keybord has stopped". Without keyboard you can do nothing even to turn on your Wi-Fi net. How to write a password to do it? I was trying to turn on the keybord in settings but it resulted impossible.  Restarting the system also did not help. Did anybody try this new  stock ROM issued by chinese developers?

Thanks for reporting the problem, I'm removing the current firmware downloads.

I'll remove Google Keyboard and rebuild a firmware, I'll need feedback on the new build.

Cheers.

I have flashed the official v2.04 ROM from Cube.

It's working at least.  I'll try more and provide more feedback here.

Hi to all.

This is my very first post here. After checking out so many custom firmwares for the U30GT2 published by arctablet. Sometimes I had some problems with the firmwares but this one works great! Thanks for the new version! My Cube seems to be perfect now. This is the best site here. TANKS!

The only thing which I'm still missing with my Cube is the support of USB hubs. But it's something I can live with...

Again thanks for the great work.

Greetings from Germany,

Andreas

Andreas, 

May I ask which firmware you have tested and worked fine for you ? Is that the last build kasty-cube_u30gt2-422-204_20130810-rooted0.zip ? No problem with Android's keyboard ?

I can't test my own firmwares as I don't have a Cube U30GT2, I'd need feedback ASAP so we can clear the keyboard issue and have a clean firmware available for everybody.

Cheers.

Yes, it's the last build, published here. Well, I did not take care of Android's keyboard because I used a hardware keyboard from beginning.

I tested it: The software Android keyboard is missing. Only voice recognition is there. If no hardware keyboard is available, this build would be totally useless. Sorry for that bad information. But that's it ...

Thanks for your feedback.

For those who tested the stock 2.04 final firmware from Cube, was the keyboard present and working ? was it an Asian or non-Asian/regular keyboard ?

Thank you.

Here is another test build where I have included hackerskeyboard (a 5-row keyboard using full PC key layout)  that will hopefully fix the keyboard problems.

Download: kasty-cube_u30gt2-422-204_20130810-rooted1.zip

If this fix works fine, I'll make a final test build with the keyboard from Cube's previous stock 2.04 firmware version.

I've got the final stock installed and the keyboard in the settings says Chinese but when you use it it's mostly English. I'm going to install google one now.

 

Oh and if you un-tick the Chinese keyboard your are left with voice only. Hope that helps.

Well that would confirm the missing regular non Asian keyboard on Cube's 2.04 final firmware.

Here is hopefully my last test build, it includes a working Android keyboard from previous Cube U30GT2 firmware.

Download: kasty-cube_u30gt2-422-204_20130810-rooted4c.zip

Please let me know how it works.

I do confirm the same. Removing the Google Keyboard does not help. I have not usb keyboard and the voice recognition is a disaster. I am saying "one" it writes "when" or " wine". Never writes "one". I will download your last ROM with new keyboard and will try but a little later. Now I am too busy.
