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.

Does the tab have a Reset?
- Oma -
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.

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.
I'll describe my pre-roms conditions and after:
Stock rom 4.4.2 default Chinese Language
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
OMA 4.4.2 rom, default German Language
Wifi, cameras, bluetooth, gps, laucher great change!, sound, OTG,
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.
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?
