I got my T428 rooted with moborobo but I had to close down moborobo before running TPsparkyroot then that let adb.exe do it’s thing without any errors except for the supersu thing which I downloaded later on from google play store. So now what folder do I put the new rom update.img file in with moborobo so that it will ask me to update the firmware?

This is what eric on the geekbuying.com blog said about the situation but I tried it and it didn’t work for me so any ideas on what I should do next?

Please try to do this, download the firmware, decompress it, and rename the img file to update.img. copy the update.img to your micro sd card, insert to your Tronsmart t428,and then the t428 will inform you find a new firmware update, click ” update button” and then you will get the new firmware installed.

The method mentioned by Eric does not work well with custom firmware that have a modified apps storage space (such as the one published in post #1)

As recommended, you should use Rockchip Batch Tool 1.7 to flash the firmware (use Restore button)

We have a rather old tutorial here that will give you the general idea, a more up to date guide for MiniPC and recent tablets is in the works.

You can also refer to geekbuying's instructions:

Cheers.

Thanks for the rooted 1080p firmware. Upgraded but seems lagging caused T428 hard to handle 1080 60p, wireless hard to get connected. Now I'm going back to 720p. This is my experience on 1080 firmware and there is no other error. 

cheers

I'm also not so satisfied with this firmware performance and more generally with other 1080p firmwares as well. I switch back to 720p too Wink

I am using this rom and FYI HuluPlus and Plex are unable to play video, these worked on previous Roms. Hulu can play the commercials but not the videos and Plex just has black screen when it thinks its playing the videos. Probably a hardware acceleration issue.
