  • [ROM Download] Official Android 4.4 KitKat Firmware For RK3188T TV BOX and TV Sticks

    HI guys:

    Rockchip release the official android 4.4 firmware for their tv box and tv stickes, today, we just get this firmware, it is special for the tv box which use AP6210 wifi module. If your tv box/sticks don’t use this module, please don’t flash, you will lose your wifi and bluetooth, please note!

    We have tried this on MK908II and MK809III with AP6210, both can work well, please help to test more models, and report back.

    The official firmware has fixed some bugs in the beta android 4.4 firmware, please flash and check.

    One problem i find in this firmware is there is NO Google apps ( play store, gmail, google play service) preinstalled, It’s really sucks, don’t know why rockchip remove those in this official update, but i know we can add this by ourselves. I still tried to figure out how to install that by myself, if you know how to fix that, please leave message here. ok, here we go:

    Firmware Download Link
    password is geekbuying.com

    ROM is not rooted, and you should root by yourself. Here i recommend you a easy root method, download the root tool here:
    http://www.mgyun.com/en/GetVRoot

    Run and install this tool in your PC and go to your tv box setting, and open the “USB Debug” setting, and just click Get root button, this tool will help you to get root. easily.

    ROM is still base on 720p. and we are working with the developer,and will release the 1080p version soon.

    The total performance of Android 4.4 Kitkat has been improved a lot than the Jelly Bean Android 4.2. It has less boot time, and system is much steady and fast.

    Enjoy!

            Yes, we played with this yesterday. No sound on my TV Box or a number of the devs here. Mainly because the kernel provided has support for an ES8323 codec (usually found in tablets) compiled in which clashes. It plays vdeo okay (but without sound on my device), desktop is 1280x720.

            When I substituted one of my kernels sound works but videos play with a black screen. If I amend video.overlay to 0 (set to 1) I get video playback but quality is awful.

            So, it needs work

            Eric, if you get us the source code from the developers we'll build a proper one

            Here is the ROM hosted locally and split into components to selectively flash for those that know what they're doing

              Get us the full source and I'll work on a CM11 build which I just can't get to boot currently without more of the kitkat source.

                  Wow that looks like they took a tablet ROM and patched it with a new kernel to me.

                      I plugged in a USB audio device and settings picked it up but still now sound.

                      I am going to use D33 kernels and see if I can fix the video! My bet is bad drivers and codecs. I will see if I can pull those out of the older BETA KK and get this to work decent.

                        Wonder if the built in mic with the a928 would be picked up.

                          Hey D33, on my MK908-ii (6210) I cant get this KK to boot with any of your kernels. It hangs on the google TV logo in your kernel? I tried 3.0 and 3.1 versions.

                          I am going to switch to my A928 and 6330 kernels and see if it will work.

                            Weird man!

                            Never seen loader.bin do such things! But something is odd.

                            D33, your kernels work with the loader this ROM came with 2.10. But I was using loader 2.13 and you kernels will not boot with it! The stock kernel boot with loader 2.13 and 2.10 but yours wont boot with 2.13.

                            Wondering if its the metadata partition since people report 2.13 works with Jelly Bean which doesn't have this partition.

                            Also, with loader 2.10 and your kernels the system is laggy as hell which is why you saw such choppy video. Heck you can see how laggy mouse movements are with your kernel, this KK ROM, and loader 2.10. I think again the loader issue is the metadata partition thing nothing more.


                            More investigation needed here for sure.

                              Dis they changed partition layout?..
                              Here is another preview for kitkat build from the KK SDK for radxa rock test platform :radxa_rock_kk_update
                              I did compare the two firmware and they are the same only difference is on kernel. As loader it use 2.10.
                              I own a minix neo x7 and I haven't tested any of them. If I will dare to test this what can go wrong?.. beside wifi and bluetooth?.. I would be able to go back to stock?..

                              L.E.
                              Here I found the info:http://radxa.com/2014/03/25/android-...#disqus_thread
