but those aren't publicly available, or ? At least I coulnd't find anything.

I'm now actually pretty sure that my U30GT2 is not the same as what you usually find.

* It doesn't have LED flash

* No front light sensor (or no front cam, haven't tried yet ???)

* Aluminium back, not only frame.

* plugs are located differently

* charges with micro USB charger, no 12 volts

* micro HDMI, not mini.

* 16 GB, think this isn't an option on U30GT2 usually?!

 

But other parameters are the same or similar, RK3188 and 1920x1200 display, so it can't be just a U30GT while it identifies itself as this.

Though it also has pretty poor Wifi signal reception compared with my phone.

testing 

works correctly
wifi
bluetooth 
sound

dont work
without automatic brightness option

May 4 kernel with auto rotate changed

February 18 kernel with auto rotate works correctly

Thank you for testing!

With the latest kernel what is the orientation mismatch? 90° clock-/counterclockwise?

I don't know the tab ... what is the automatic brightness option? Is it not there or is it without function?

I don't know, what other people are thinking about this kitkat ROM, but I think it's horrible :(
Half a second lag everywhere. Scrolling is a pain, it starts way too slowly, and the smoothness of the scroll is trrrible. Of course I turned the GPU acceleration on, and turned all animations off, but does not help.
All the others things (bad keyboard, phone UI layout,...) are minor issues, compared to the overall lumpy feeling of the UI.

What ROM are you talking about? Kasty ones or OMA ones? All the words i read about the both roms were great...

After a few minutes of use, the ROM seems quite stable.

can you provide a picture of the tablet? could it be a vido m10? We already had one person who was shipped a vido instead of a cube. we also had at least two people who got tables that were a different model, tow letters after the u30gt2. So a picture might help identify your tablet.

Loaded Kasty's 7c firmware

Video appears to be fixed, although the sound is delayed from the video. When viewing video on the web.

My local video's are fine. Sound in sync.

USB Hub works.

Compass does not work.

Gets better with each release. Thanks!!

Seems to work fine, alltough i agree the tablet is a bit less responsive.

- Flickering screen is gone  ( + )

- The audio is severely out of sync with the video. IMHO, this is a serious issue. We've bought the cube because it has a fantastic screen, but you cannot watch video on it without getting extremely frustrated!!!!

OMA ROM feels nice, responsive so far, here with top clocked DarthJabba kernel installed. But it is also affected by the same dreaded a/v sync problem of web video others are experiencing with Cube KK ROMs. Earlier reported issues of rotated camera picture, missing auto-brightness (sensor switch is missing in brightness control popup), bad behavior of auto-rotate don't bother me that much really. HW layers problem is gone. Thanks for bringing this alternative up!

Can you (Or somebody else) post a link to streaming video you're trying to watch that's got AV sync problems...

I've just watched a 60 minute programme on the BBC Iplayer and I'm now watching the BBC live news stream (15-mins so far) with chrome browser and no AV sync problems...

I'm using this ROM kasty-cube_u30gt2-442-funromstudio_20140606-rooted7c
