Here is an Android 4.4.2 KitKat rooted firmware for the Cube U30GT2 tablet . This custom firmware is based on Chinese KitKat Funrom_Studio firmware dated 2014/06/06.
 
(Funrom_Studio-CUBE_U30GT2_4.4.2_V1_140606.img)
 
400xNxpipo_m9_pro_android442_kitkat_20131226_kitkat_b.png.pagespeed.ic.OX66oTHP96.jpg 
 

Build information:

Kernel: Linux version 3.0.36+ (tangy@tchipserver2) (gcc version 4.6.x-google 20120106 (prerelease) (GCC) ) #95 SMP PREEMPT Sun May 4 15:50:58 CST 2014

Android 4.4.2: CUBE/u30gt2/rk3188:4.4.2/KOT49H/eng.root.20140211.100632:eng/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst-keys

ro.rksdk.version=RK31_ANDROID$(PLATFORM_VERSION)-SDK-v1.00.00

RK3188Loader(L)_V2.10.bin
 
As you can read, this firmware seems to be mostly a kernel update as the Android system is still one from February 2014.
 
Custom firmware features:
  • root with latest SuperSU version 1.99r3¬†(free version)
  • removed most Chinese and unnecessary applications
  • Google Play Store fixes so more application are visible/compatible
  • updated busybox¬†v1.21.0.git (2012-11-29)
  • Unix like¬†init.d boot scripts support, more details on init.d scripts¬†here
  • changed permissions on external sdcard to allow write access
  • increased space for applications (/data partition) to¬†7 GB
  • disabled OTA updates (may cause problems, see Notes below)
  • added¬†Google Experience Launcher (GEL)¬†in addition to Cube's stock launcher
  • kernel modules (cifs, tun, lan, serial, xpad) compiled by Oma &¬†Crew RKTablets, thank guys!
  • optional¬†ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery easy install package¬†(apparently reported to be not compatible with this firmware)
  • multi-user support thanks to¬†didierm contribution

Notes: 

- any update received thru OTA may interfere with our custom firmware, we recommend to refuse any update pushed OTA. 

- current KitKat based firmwares should be considered as beta software

Download: kasty-cube_u30gt2-442-funromstudio_20140606-rooted7c_mu.zip

Flash with Rockchip Batch Tool version 1.7, use Restore button.

Please report any problem with this firmware, I can't verify this custom firmware works as I don't have anymore a Cube U30GT2 tablet to test the custom firmware.

Thank you so much. I'll try it now  :)

 

I'm getting ASOP "keyboard stopped" at the start. I will flash again.

Still got the error so I put google keyboard on. And so far so good.

 

Anyone know how to set the weather on the lock screen?

I've added an older keyboard in the firmware because the original funrom one had only Chinese keyboard included. There seems to be some incompatibility with the one I choose.

newbi, you added Google Keyboard from the PlayStore, is that correct ?

Not easy for me to check as I don't have a Cube tablet. If confirmed, I will probably correct this issue in another build.

Cheers.

It should come shortly.

I have updated the firmware and the download link in post #1, it will hopefully fix the keyboard issue.

I'm sorry I can't test as I don't have a Cube U30GT2 tablet.

As for the weather app, it is still left out of the firmware, that is build to contain just a clean and minimal set of apps.

Cheers.

Many thanks !

Does it fix the battery problem ? The previous version was nearly perfect. But the battery performance was so bad.

Hmm so right now there is a persistent keyboard problem, and its rejecting the workaround.

Perhaps Admin needs to do another fundraising drive to get arctablet a Cube to work on. With 4.4.3 out and who knows probably 4.4.4 or maybe 5.0 in the future it would be good for us users to get a Cube in their hands or even DarthJabba's able hands.

If we can agree I'm willing to pony up the first $30 or $40 dollars to keep my cube going and up to date. What say you folks? And will Admin or Darth agree if we can come to a consensus on this? EBay has a few going for less than $250US. I saw one going for $219US.

I know the tab is going on two years now but frankly I just haven't seen another with these specs at the price its going for in the past and now. Yeah we can all upgrade to IPads or Surface or whatever, but personally I just haven't got that kind of money and my cube is in pristine condition. If I can keep the operating system up to date for a few more years I'm willing to invest in keeping it going!

Just a thought!

Count me in - I will add another $30 which is a snip considering the help I have had over the years.

ian, maikal,

Thanks you for the offer but I think we need to focus on the future with new RK3288 tablets coming out soon. Anyway, the biggest part of donations we receive just cover our servers costs and there isn't much left so far to help funding a new tablet Confused

Still, we'll support the Cube U30GT2 and older tablets as long as possible, but it's difficult to promise Android 4.4.3 or later updates, unless the manufacturer builds one that we could tune. The great guys from Crew RKTablets might help rebuilding a firmware from scratch, I'll check with Oma.

About the keyboard issue on current custom firmware, it may just be a small issue in the custom build and I am sure it will be fixed shortly.

Cheers.
