Gents,

This is my first custom build for iFive Mini 4 ;-)

Build is based on stock v1.1.3 dated 25. Aug 2014 and kernel #141 preempt 25. Aug 2014.

All chinese stuff (incl. the launcher) is removed. A full gapps package (incl. goolge now launcher) is added.

 

Mini4 by Oma build v1.0

– stock recovery 4.4.0
kernel #141
– 4 GB internal storage
– init.d support
– latest hosts, su, su-binary, busybox
– Reboot Menue, sEFix, FX Sound
– Dateimanager HD (Root)
– Nova Launcher, Google Now Launcher
 

Flash instructions are included in the download pack.
>>> put the device in flash mode by pressing the “Switch” Button in the Android Tool.

 

Hints:
– start with Nova Launcher to enable proper contacts services!
– to improve UI feeling: disable all animation scales in developer options,
use Nova launcher and set animation/scroll to “faster than light” and
enable Entropy Fixer with value 256
– to improve battery drain set keep wi-fi on during sleep to never
– to get full access to the build enable /system rw in File Manager HD
– to disable su notifications change notification in settings/SuperSu
– to prettify the build use
Xposed Framework > Starter Pack
– to enable multi-user use the Xposed module Multi Users 

Be aware: it is your own risk!

Install the USB driver with the Driver Assistant.

Press and hold the power botton until screen goes black. While still holding the button plug the usb cable in.

No, no HW Buttons and no Reset Hole.

You have to put the device in flashmode by pressing the "Switch" Button in the Android Tool.
If it is in Flashmode, select your values in the Android or RKBatchTool and Click the "Run" Button.
It will be restarting automatically.

Thanks all!

It was successful by Greet's way.
Since there was no volume button, I was panicked. ;-)

Yes, please let us know that!

& at Oma, maybe you can update your flash instruction in the attached .zip, so new members don't get confused.

This is the way to flash-modof Greets

3) start the tab into flash-modus
a) run AndroidTool.exe
b) Put the device in flash mode by pressing the "Switch" Button in the Android Tool.
c) It will be restarting automatically and "Found One LOADER Device" is shown.

Mini4:No problem.
 
2.Network
Wifi:Working fine.
Ethernet:Working fine.
 
3.Camera
Working fine.(Front and Back)
 
4.Sound
Speaker has little noisy. 
Headphone are satisfactory.

Hi,

I'm new to the blog but i like to share an learn so here i am.

Now i like to thank this site and members for sharing and helping other to improve, customize etc their devices. Great work !

Resently bought an ifive mini 4, a great tablet good looking but full of chinese stuff so i begin my research of roms and found this blog and decided to give it a try to your rom Oma.

T

I'll describe my pre-roms conditions and after:

- Pre:

Stock rom 4.4.2 default Chinese Language

1.1.3 firmware

Issues

Awful launcher may be the worse i have used.

low battery efficency - understandable

touch screen to much sensitve - annoying

the brightness bar starts working  after about 30% of the bar - trivial

- After

OMA 4.4.2 rom, default German Language

1.1.3 firmware

OK:

Wifi, cameras, bluetooth, gps, laucher great change!, sound, OTG,

Issues

low battery efficency - a bit better following the tips provided.

touch screen to much sensitve - didn't change and i don't know how to calibrate it.

the brightness bar starts working  after about 30% of the bar - trivial - the same

After second reboot for an unknow reason all wife stored connection were missing has to add it again, after that it hasn't happened again.

When its on stand by and the power button is presed the screen flashes at high bright and return to normal bright, strange and a bit annoying like it was taking screen shoots effect.

Well i think that all, hope this helps to improve the rom, and i volunteer to keep testing.

Thaks

Thank you for your review.

I noticed the same with the touchscreen, it is TOO sensitive.
I saw that you can edit the build.prop to reduce the sensivity of the touchscreen.
@Oma7144, do you know something about build.prop tweaks?

@sinuhedl, you wrote that the GPS is working fine, but the iFive Mini4 has no GPS Sensor?
Can you explain that?

And does anybody know, why the network(WiFi) Location doestn work?
