Anyone tested it? Is it safe?

Yes, after removing the Chinese crap and replacing the "Onda Launcher" with the Launcher from the 4.2.2 firmwares, it runs smooth.

No mayor issues so far, but rooting is not that easy at the moment.

I am working on it....

 Thank you!

I'm also testing it now, seems fine! Runs better than with Kasty or ufficial rom..

Joseph, on stock launcher seems like I don't have the drawer button on home screen or I can't find it...how do you enter app droawer from home?

ok, at least I have found a way to root it.

I will do some tests and upload a cleaned ROM later this evening

ATM I am on 3G, so have a little bit patience, until my ADSL comes back to life

I replaced the, more than childish original Launcher, with a launcher from a 4.2.2 Rom.

Are you familiar with Linux, the sunxi-tools and bash scripting?

Seriously, this is not a "one-click" process and even more difficult with the new 4.4 ROM's

But here is a good starting point

What is this 'brushing machines', may that be a machine translation of the Chinese term for 'rooted device'?
