  • MK808-B (original) JB 4.2.2 Official - Finless ROM 2.1

    OK folks, as many may know Rikomagic released an official JellyBean 4.2.2 ROM for the MK808 and MK808B.
    You can read about it here and also get the stock ROM from links posted in this thread:

    http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.p...ory-from-China

    Thus you know me.... I decided to make a Finless ROM 2.1 version using it. The stock ROM is pretty nice this time unlike the BETA 4.2.2 they released a while ago. Lots of more supported devices, etc.

    Anyway, this time I did the MK808B first. I will do the MK808 Non-B next so stay tuned for that.

    This is ONLY for the Original MK808B. It is not for the MK808B clones like the Sunvel.

    ______________________

    Features and release notes for my 2.1 JB 4.2.2 ROM:

    1) Rooted with an updated SU and Superuser.apk that works with 4.2.2

    2) Debloated of a huge amount of crap apps!
    Oh and the stock ROM was wasting a ton of NAND space!
    They had defined system.img to be DOUBLE that of normal ROMs.
    This was to handle the huge system.img that they filled with a ton of bloat!
    I reduced the parameter file from 200000 for system back to 100000 after debloat.
    Realize that with these reduced parameter files, the original system.img wont fit.
    So to go back to stock ROM you will need to erase NAND and use the original parameter files.
    I have provided the original parameter file in the ROM kit named parameter_original.

    3) As always, full init.d support! If you do not know what that is... ignore it. For geeks that want to use it. It is there!

    4) Gameloft fix. This fixes Gameloft games from crashing to the desktop.
    Many of them do not run and crash to the desktop. This is due to a license check based on the device.
    Special thanks to Christian Troy for inventing this fix. I modded it for this ROM.

    5) Phone carrier fix for Google Market unlock (more APPs show up).
    For some reason this was not built in like other stock ROMs.

    6) I unlocked hidden settings:
    -> Accessibility

    7) New "grid" style launcher available as a choice of launchers.
    Some people still want the Alternate launcher that comes with many TV sticks for EZ TV use.
    I took this from another 4.2.2 ROM. This of course comes with the RK settings as well.
    If you want to remove this just use ES File explorer and delete these files from /system/app
    LauncherNEW.apk
    AllApp.apk
    RKSettings.apk
    RKBasicsettings.apk
    Now just reboot and all this will be gone.

    8) All Google APPs updated except Google Search

    9) Busybox that I like best Wraitdu 1.19.4

    10) 1gb and up to 4gb parameter files available for more APP space. 1GB is the default for the flash tool.
    See below for instruction to use other parameter files to change you APP space

    11) I edited framework to turn off the default "Bubbles" live wallpaper.
    I hate live wallpapers on first boot. It slows the boot down and over all initial performance.
    I have set the usual green leaf standard wallpaper.
    I also removed the FAKE files they added to framework in they attempt they made to try a keep people from modding this ROM!
    I can't believe they are trying to go to this level and protect the ROM and keep people from editing it easily!
    That's fixed! Enjoy an OPEN ROM again.

    12) Changed build.prop so USB connection to PC is a Mass Storage device and not a MTP device.
    This ROM has no settings to change that at all (I will fix that later). I prefer a Mass Storage device myself.
    You can easily change it back in build.prop. I commented out the MTP line.

    13) Build.prop edit to open up the Google Play store to APPs that normally say "not compatible".
    I am spoofing a Samsung device that will show almost any APP as compatible.
    Your device will now NOT show up as a MK808 device to Google Play! Understand this please.
    I also left the original build.prop in the ROM called build.orig.
    If you want to go back, just use ES FIle Explorer or a root file explorer and rename build.prop to build.old
    Then rename build.orig to build.prop.
    Go into settings, apps, all and go into the Google Play app. Clear the cache and data.
    Reboot!

    14) Remote Control using RK Remote APP is now fully supported!
    In the ROM kit is a RKRemoteControl.apk.
    You install this on your phone or tablet and now it can remotely control your TV player!
    Just put the APK on sdcard or something and install it on your Android phone, tablet, etc.
    ENJOY this one! I had a HARD TIME getting it to work!

    15) Petrus reboot APP is added

    16) 1080P patched kernel baby! I patched the stock kernel to 1080P.
    There are 2 kernels and 2 boots in the ROM kit. By default kernel720 and boot720 are selected in the flash tool. If you want to use a 1080 kernel then read the instructions below.

    Other notes:
    CIFS.ko, Xpad.ko, md4.ko, etc is already in the stock kernel! China dev's are learning

    Expect some rooted APPs to not play right due to the new multi-user permissions of 4.2.2

    In this ROM Automatic "set date and time from network" is not turned on.
    I could fix that but ran out of time for now.
    I highly suggest you turn this on first!
    If you do not the default date is 1970 on every boot!
    Google Play does not like this so turn it on before you sign into Google.

        What´s the max. CPU speed? Can it be (slightly) increased for better performance with 1080p, without running into overheating, i.e. something between 1.2...1.4GHz?

          Just my luck

          After two attempts, no errors during flash....MK808B does not reboot. Shows "Frequency is out of range!" on my projector screen.

          Any ideas?

            Nevermind... must be a projector setting. It works fine on my Sammy TV.

            Thanks Bob.

                  Netflix Problem

                  Thanks for the ROM Bob!

                  I am, however, having issues with Netflix streaming. Audio works perfectly, but video is showing up as a double split image or some completely unrecognizable image.

                  I'm using the 1080p kernel and boot image.

                      This is a know problem with 4.2.2 and TV sticks!

                      None of the TV sticks with 4.2.2 works with Netflix!

                      I think Netflix made a change to support 4.2.2 tablets and in the process they broke other 4.2.2 ROMS.
                      So I do believe this problem needs to be solved by Netflix!

                      Older versions of Netflix does not have scrambled video, but they also do not stream properly. I have a full post about this in my BETA ROM thread from Finless 2.0.

                      Sorry but until Netflix fixes this, NO TV Stick on 4.2.2 will work with Netflix.

                            Sorry man... but USER ERROR.....

                            I think you corrupted the file system by rebooting too soon or something.

                            Flash again and follow my instructions please.
                            Please wait about 3-4 minutes after first flash for the system to calm down on first boot. Common mistake by people to be honest. There are no issues like this your talking about in this ROM.

                              But how do I connect with the Rom Flash tool? Or can i copy the img file to a mini sd and flash from the recovery menu?

                              Thx in advance!
