Here is an Android 4.4.2 KitKat rooted custom firmware for the FNF iFive X2 tablet. This firmware is based on the official iFive firmware 2.0.2 dated 2014/02/19. According to iFive changelog, it should finally fix the ghosting issue found in previous KitKat firmwares.

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.

Hdmi working with this rom? Can i use ManuRoms OC Kernel with this rom? Thank you!
Hdmi working with this rom?
I wonder too whether HDMI output to "big screen television" (video and audio) works in this ROM (Netflix and other video player apps). If it does then Kitkat here I come.
"Spirit said: I got artifacts while browsing with chrome."
I guess Chrome web app seems to have some artifacts while scrolling (read reports from here and there about Kitkat and X2), but Chrome have had the same issue with other ROMs and other tablets also. Reports state that stock Android browser and several other browsers don't have the same issue in X2 Kitkat. Are there scroller artifacts with Chrome Beta browser too? It is newer and IMHO better version of Chrome browser even when it is still in beta state (available in Play store).
