Dear all I am a newbie and I need some info from your side:
2. Do you experience warmth on the left side of the tablet ( connections side while holding in Landscape ) while using apps or games?
Yes, overheating is indeed regular, but simply blow a few seconds through the holes and the tablet will be then cooled rapidly

To all U30GT2 owners,
can someone please confirm if your tablets report the Battery Temperature because mine is reporting 0 Degrees Celsius and I find it a little strange.
This can be checked by using a program like AndroSensor downloadable from Play Store link follows:
Please can someone check since I think it is strange and my tablet is restarting by itself and I think it has hardware problems which I need to report to unfortunately a Chinese dealer.
My temperature is being reported as 0.0%C as well. I believe this is a function of what is enabled in or supported by the kernel, and so I would not worry. However, spontaneous reboots is a problem. It should not happen. It may be a hardware issue, or a firmware issue.

I very carefully read through all nine pages of this topic, but couldn't find anything related to what I perceive as a problem - namely, increased battery drain with Kasty ROMs. I first noticed this with the 2.04 version. It was so bad that I decided my batteries went sour, and almost ordered new ones... I re-flashed stock ROM, and the problem disappeared..
Now I flashed the 2.06, and it seems that the high drain is back. Before I start yelling 'wolf', I'd like to find out if this is indeed a problem, or am I just oversensitive after the last try?
What IS considered normal battery drain? My battery went from full to 18% in less than 3 hours of light usage: reading, some light gaming, surfing, etc. Is this normal? I know for a fact it didn't drain that fast with stock 2.04.
Do I need to recalibrate the battery, whatever that is, and how is it done?
Any and all input will be highly appreciated.
In sleep mode, 1% per hour is quite normal
I have about the same battery drain, but I don't think it is "normal". I've chechked the system tuner app, and it says, the processor is offline most of the time. This is the expected, for example, whole night it is suspended. The battery monitor shows the wifi active all the time, but it is false, because clearly visible, that the wifi connects when I start using the tablet. But something must be there, which drains the battery in sleep mode. 1% per hour is not normal with 7600 mAh batteries. For comparison, my phohe has a 2000mAh battery, and mtk65.. quad core processor, and it can be idle for 6-7 days. 1/4 battery capacity, but longer idle time, it means, that my phone uses idle power more than 5 times better.
The other thing, which I see as a difference, for example play updates. With the cube, while play is running updates, the tablet is nearly useless, but my phone (lenovo s750), i didn't notice anything, but the gogle play update progess in the statusbar, I can use may phone while updating, withouth any break or slowdown.
I don't know if it is Rockchip's, or Cube's responsibility, but I don't see any significant improvement since the version 2 sdks came out from rockchip.
The only thing, why I don't switch back to the 2.04 is, that I have win8.1 on my pc, and I can't install rockchip drivers
Oyeeee, yes indeed Rockchip Batchtool only seems to work well with Win XP for some reason. Luckily I still have my old reliable Asus Eee 900, so I have something to work with... Anyway, battery drain continues to be execrable. Standby uses something like 3 to 5 percent per hour. Did a calibration, no dice. And that in the face of continuing assurances by everyone involved that battery use should be nothing short of miraculous... Even on local Israeli forums. They do however speak only of the DarthJabba mods, which I am still hesitant to try, cause CWM.
Am downloading stock Chinese 2.06 now, and will flash this until such time as they bestir themselves to make an English version.
The only reason I can find for such strange behaviour, is that my tablet is the 16 gig model, however ridiculous that may sound...
Well, my gratitude to everyone who responded. Have fun.
Master Jedi, thanks for your concern. However, I just flashed the 2.06 stock, and it seems to work really well, stable and smooth. 'Google' is written in Chinese, of course, but its a small price to pay really. On every single parameter I could see, the stock ROM works better then the Kasty, for me at least.
So thanks again, and may the Force be with y'all.
Yep. I have USB debug on, and I can access both internal and external SD (drives Y: and Z:) from my Windows 7 PC.
I think you should check your USB cable. Some devices have issues with some USB cables.
