Use Rockchip Batch Tool version 1.7 to flash the firmware, use Restore button.

 

Please report any problem with this firmware, I can't verify this custom firmware works as I don't have an iFive X2 to test it.

I installed yet. Better Antutu index, now 19817.

But there are three problem i found after a few minutes.

 

First: ifive skin is back. :-(

Does anbody know how to kill it?

 

The second: The gallery is too slow for AVCHD files and the old ifive player from 4.2.2 doesnt work with this new version. Can we get the actual ifive player please?

 

The third: The Lookscreen shows me now always the weather of Shenzen. Nice to know, but far away from germany and im really not interested in the the waether of Shenzen...

Hi,

 

Not sure if I'm doing something wrong (I installed 4.2.2/1.18 previously with no issues) but I got a "Download Firmware Fail" on the Batch Tool after a while...Had some problems getting into flash mode in the first place which I put down to being on Win 8.1, but it seemed to be working fine up to this point.

 

Not actually sure what to do now to get back to previous version/exit the flash tool

 

If anyone is reading this live - Do I just exit the tool and try again? 

 

Thanks

Ok, problem was solved for me as got a BSOD :( and a force reboot of PC - Second time worked fine and tablet has now just booted up with no issues, Phew! Hopefully a way to get rid of the iFive skin will be forthcoming soon.

 

Thanks - Will report on any other discovered issues

As far as looks go it's really hard to get past the iFive skin which I hate, but for performance everything I'm trying seems good - smooth and slick.

My Antutu score was 20072.

Can't find the FiveWeather.apk file so cannot follow the weather removal tool from previous version posts.

Probably not installing too much at this stage or trying too much more tonight as I'm holding out for skin removal update.

--Holger_p--,

I have rebuilt the firmware adding back the iFive Video and Music players. Please let me know if they are worth to be kept in the firmware.

Post #1 updated and new firmware posted:

Download: kasty-fnf_ifive_x2-442-200_20140108-rooted4b.zip

As for the Skin, are you talking about the launcher or is it an external APK (I may have missed it when cleaning the firmware) ? 

Regarding Shenzen Weather in the lockscreen, I have found some traces of it, but I am not sure how to disable it, it won't be easy to check without having an actual iFive X2 to test on. If anyone has suggestions...

 

Cheers.

 I believe it's the custom iFive launcher he's referring to - previous kasty ROMs have replaced it with the stock android launcher?

The video Player is very performant. It is the Rockchip Videoplayer and extreme optimized for MALI400. But i´m not sure if it fix the problem with AVCHD in the new ROM. I got last week a Finger On Tab engeneered from a company named Trulux (Japan) - wonderful tablet with RK3188 and Android 4.2. and a brandnew Kernel from Rockchip with MultiWindows, Miracast and so on. Antutu Benchmark was good, but the AVCHD Performance is very poor. Even with the optimized Rockchip Player, preinstalled.

 

This new Kitkat ROM has new Rockchip stock Kernel too and suddenly exact the same problems with AVCHD. I think they changed the Kernel. So i did downgrade a few minutes ago.

How do you flash this if you already have CWM recovery installed? My iFive X2 is running CM10.1 now, so I have CWM. I can't get into flash mode because it boots CWM instead...

Hi, I flash this cROM, also cwm recovery thru arctool. In cwm recovery I can't mount /cache nor /data, /sdcard, /system. actually I only can mount external sdcard. so there's no way to backup anything.

 Now it can't even reboot.

Flashed a little white ago smoooth as butter so far no issues and Netflix works. The only thing I hate is the tiles. And there is no way to seemingly get rid of them. Any launchers that anyone else is using?

My X2 will arrive Tuesday, would there be a way to get Stock launcher in this Rom like in the latest 4.2.2 1.2.0 ROM?

 

I can't check it yet but the APK for Nexus 5 Kitkat launcher can be found here:

Thank you for supporting the new firmware.

But, there is a issue in streaming video. When I play the streaming, the screen and sound are not matched.

Could you check it?
