    HOMLET V2 - A rom with modifications similar to dovless 1.13/1.18
    Based on :
    Code:
    
    "Stock firmware" Tronsmart
    version 1 of 12/19/2014 a.k.a.:
    CX-A99-A80-4.4-6335-20141219v1
    


    BACKUP/RESTORE SCRIPTS FOR USB KEY PREPARATION
    (data.tar) :
    backup_restore_scripts.zip


    This rom contains the following modifications applied to CX-A99-A80-4.4-6335-20141219v1:
    Code:
    1)     OVERCLOCK (672 MHZ vs 600 for RAM and 1800MHZ   vs 1600MHZ for CPU).
    2)     RESTORE USERDATA AND AUTO INSTALL OF ANY APK (YOU NEED A PREPARED USB KEY FOR THIS OPTION)
    3)     TWEAKS VIA SUGGESTED BUILD.PROP ADDITIONS & powervr.ini changes (thx to 4pda.ru users)
    4) TWRP RECOVERY
    5)     COSMETICS/DISPLAY TWEAKS & VISUAL CHANGES
    -100%/FULLSCREEN by default: script to push settings to settings.db    (NEED PRIOR ACCESS TO "SETTINGS MENU" TO WORK, QUICKLY ENTER SETTINGS ON    FIRST BOOT)
    -Changed bootlogo to  neutral/anonymous   img (I was mad/sad when users  like my parents were  cursing a this   "Finless" box, cause Finless only  made it better!)
    -Changed bootanimation to minimalist looping google gears
    Code:
    
    NAVIGATION BAR IS ON, USE ROM TOOLBOX TO DISABLE:
    "qemu.hw.mainkeys = 0"  ==> SET TO 1 TO REMOVE BAR

    ==================
    USBKEY root directory structure for automated restoring/installation
    ==================

    Code:
    0) this rom can make use of a USB key to restore you prefs and install any provided apk
    1) prepare your USB key with desired files, following this naming/structure convention:  
    
     USB KEY ROOT FOLDER:
    
    
    • data.tar
      • can be created with the provided script backup_restore_scripts.zip
      • import and then run data_backup.sh using rom toolbox, and with your USB key plugged in.
      • (edit data.tar (the raw backup made by data_backup.sh) to only contain desired folders) (useful for XBMC/KODI/TVMC/SPMC add-ons and settings restore)
    • /preinstall/mynamedoesnotmatter.apk
    • /preinstall/anynameaswell.apk
    • /preinstall/etc....apk
      • put all the apk you want to have installed during 1st boot
    • /settings/com.android.settings_preferences.xml
    • /settings/accounts.db
    • /settings/wpa_supplicant.conf
    WHERE: "data.tar" is your backup TAR file of "/sdcard/Android/data/" application folders (XBMC/KODI for example), can be created with the provided script backup_restore_scripts.zip "preinstall" folder contains the APKs you would like to have installed on 1st boot "settings" folder contains your desired preferences files (UI, accounts & Wifi are supported at the moment, see above naming requirements)
    ==================
    THESE IMGs ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR "STARTUP MODE"
    ==================

    Code:
    PHOENIXCARD CRASHES WHEN USING THIS MODE WITH ALL MY IMGs
    TO FIX YOUR IMAGE FOR STARTUP MODE (BOOT FROM SD)
    IN 3 STEPS:
    Use imgRePacker_205 : 1) drag, "draco_aw80_dovless_1.09.img" on "imgRePacker.exe". 2) delete ROM draco_aw80_dovless_1.09.img. 3) drop your folder "draco_aw80_dovless_1.09.img.dump" on "imgRePacker.exe".
    Source:http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.p...l=1#post273578 If rom still does not boot from SDCard, rebuild and image, reflash it to sdcard and try again, 2nd try worked for 2 users. If problems with your SDCARD format it using - "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool 2.2.3" (free tool, google it), then try again.

          Working better then the rest i have tested.. still frames dropping on HD channels and video.
          i don't use the mediacodec and just libstagefright it's better but no deinterlace so the video is kinda shaky.

            Hy guys....i have a problem with kodi/spmc.
            Everytime i stop an live stream channel, it close kodi/spmc.
            It's not a big problem, but is verry frustrating.
            It is an workaround for this?
