- temporary fix for multi-user support, please check here
- optional ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery easy install package

Please report any problem with this firmware, I can't verify this custom firmware works as I don't have an iFive 3 to test it.
I didn't tested deeply but everything seem to work.
Just the memory management is terrible. I don't think is your rom anyway...
As I start opening apps the pages scrolling slows down: 2gb seem to be uneffective.
I'm trying to have a decent browsing with no luck. The animation at scrolling is not smooth as it could.
I've got also a VoyoA15 (11.6" 1080p Exynos5520) and a Alps HD-89 (7" 720p Mtk6589) and they are butter smooth in browsing.
Pixel density is a key factor for me. The Voyo (when it works ) is even faster than my Ipad3.
I'm not a technician but maybe a retina display is really too much for rk3188/mali400...
Dolphin, chrome, browser boat, firefox, puffin... no one is smooth. The stock browser is the best overall.
I've tried all the roms I could find: mad86 422 & 442, stock 422 & 442 and kasty 422 & 442. They all are about equal at browsing. I'm trying to obtain the "2222" rom from 5fans.com.cn but is hard to accomplish the long login procedure in chinese (!!)
The best ( in browsing ) seems to be "mad86 422" and "Kasty 422".
I hope you can find a way to improve this good tablet. I know it's cheap but it has great hardware for its price. I hope FNF will realese soon a better kitkat rom.
Tell me if I can help you somehow.
Sorry for my poor english...
