Here is an Android 4.4.2 KitKat rooted custom firmware for the FNF iFive X3 tablet (refined model). This firmware is based on the official iFive firmware 2.1.6, it should be used only the iFive X3 refined model, not on the older/regular X3 where it has some compatibility issues (mostly camera problems).

Nice!

I hope this version will be better than previous. Until now the only good version is the first with android 4.2.

Is there any new tool to install the firmware? I have windows 8.1 and I can't with Rockchip Batch tool. I must find pc with other version of windows. :/

that is pretty funny. I guess it just proves that no one uses the camera on the tablet lol...

Anyway, the e-mails of the people you should contact are:

linct AT ifive.com.cn
dailei AT ifive.com.cn

(I was given those back in February by someone on their staff as the people to contact for bugs)

I would also CC:

wanghui AT ifive.com.cn (he is the guy who actually responded from their staff that gave me the other two email addresses)

Finally this version is not for the ifive x3. It is for ifive x3 Refined version. It's new model and the firmware in not compatible with old version.

@admin please change the title.

 

I told them to fix the problems for V2.1.3. I hope to do something..

Thanks for the detail angelO_o.

The topic title and custom firmware description have been updated.

Please let us know if iFive updates their firmware for the older X3, we'll make a new custom firmware.

 

Cheers.

I saw the word "refined" in translating the iFive fans forum, which is what is linked from the support/download site at iFive's website. I thought it was an error in the translation. Seeing as how you are using the word in plain English, there must be some meaning to it lol :D.

What does "refined" mean with regards to android ROM's?

 

EDIT:

OK, I understand what "refined" means now after a little googling. Apparently, iFive made an update for the X3 called the "X3 refined". I was unaware of this. So now my question is what is the difference between the old and refined versions?

Next question after that is...besides the camera, is there any harm running this ROM on the X3 old? Everything seems to work great and is very speedy.
