First, thanks for this much needed upgrade to our little machines. There is nothing about whether the ROM is flashable in CWM in the release notes. The only reason that I ask is because there is a mention of a CWM install package.

I guess that your answer is no, and I will do it with your batch tool kit....

thanks againSmile

If you check out CWM ArcTools package link you'll see it's actually a way to install a CWM Recovery as an option (our custom firmware comes with a stock recovery as default).

At a a later point, we'll eventually repackage our custom firmware in a CWM type update package for those who have a CWM-R installed and prefer to flash the firmware this way, so Rockchip Batch Tool wouldn't be required.

Cheers.
