Here is a rooted custom Android 4.2.2 firmware for the FNF iFive X3 tablet based on official version 1.1.5

(Ifive X3_FW_422_V1.1.5_201312111330.img/ Ifive X3_FW_422_V1.1.5_201312111330.rar)

 

Build information:

Linux Kernel: Linux version 3.0.36+ (five@five-server2) (gcc version 4.6.x-google 20120106 (prerelease) (GCC) ) #378 SMP PREEMPT Wed Dec 11 11:25:57 CST 2013

Android build: IFive/rk30sdk/rk30sdk:4.2.2/JDQ39/eng.root.20131212.114647:eng/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst-keys

ro.rksdk.version=RK31_ANDROID4.2.2-SDK-v1.04.00

 

Custom firmware features:

  • root with latest SuperSU version 1.86 (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 4 GB
  • disabled OTA updates (may cause problems, see Notes below)
  • removed iFive launcher, replaced with Android 4.2 AOSP stock launcher from here
  • NEW! kernel modules (cifs, tun, lan, serial, xpad) compiled by Oma & Crew RKTablets, thank guys!
  • optional ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery easy install package

 

Notes: 

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

 

Download: kasty-fnf_ifive_x3-422-115_20131211-rooted4b.zip

Use Rockchip Batch Tool version 1.7 to flash the firmware, don't flash using the "sdcard" method.

 

Please report any problem with this firmware, I can't verify this custom firmware works as I don't have an iFive X3 to test it.

Hello,

Thanks for your feedback.

Unfortunately I don't have an iFive X3 so I couldn't test this custom firmware. I remember about similar issues on another iFive model, I should be able to fix the problem and post a firmware shortly.

Cheers.

Arbalath,

That's strange, our custom firmware was reported to work by --webjo-- in post #7.

Have you flashed the new file (kasty-fnf_ifive_x3-422-115_20131211-rooted4b.zip) and not the original file (kasty-fnf_ifive_x3-422-115_20131211-rooted4.zip) that had a problem ?

Are you flashing an iFive X3 ? Did you use Restore button in Rockchip Batch Tool ?

Cheers.

Well, yes to all, but due to yesterdays flu, my multitasking skills, and given that MTK entered Rockchip sign in alignment to the sun I managed to flash my mini x3 with this firmware. I always wanted to know how these things happen and how can people be so stupid to flash wrong FW. I guess now I know.

 

On the other hand, correct mini X3 FW from you works best so far of all I tested.

Based on the nearly identical hardware footprints of the iFive X2 and X3, I have created a wiki for the X3 with procedures on flashing firmware images and several other mods as well.

iFive X3 wiki is here:

https://www.miniand.com/wiki/iFive+X3

 

Firmware flashing instructions are here:

https://www.miniand.com/wiki/Flashing+a+new+firmware+image+to+the+iFive+X3+Step+by+Step

 

The flashing instructions recommend flashing kasty's ROM of course !
