        well it wont work ok on that one you wont have all the options available that are on this rom..
        Like menu button stops doing is job and that is a important stuff in this launcher, also you lose the ability to change the background etc..

            Hi, i have several question for this V2, as i'm a V1 user ....

            1) Is this V2 version with 720p UI able to let Kodi play videos at 1080p ? The stock 7.1.1 and the stock 7.1.2 ROM, with 720p ui are not able to. The V1 is able to.
            2) Can you install and run the OpenVPN Connect application ? With V1, install is Ok but UI is totally blank and you can't configure the client.
            3) Can you install and run the AutoStart and Stay application ? With V1, the Service auto load at startup don't run.

            Many thanks for the great job and the time passed.

              1º Yes because the framebuffer in the video playback is always what the video resolution is, if it is 720p plays 720 if it is 4k is it 4k..., and this cpu is to week for a UI of 1080p.. if you dont mind the menus lag stay in V1!
              2º dunno dint try!
              3º dont know that app, try using the launcher autostart is in the launcher settings this in V2 of course!

                Nice job. Sounds like something to try out!

                I can't read from an exFAT formatted USB stick with my stock ROM, and that is kinda frustrating me.. Do you know if the new ROM and kernel allow it?

                Many thanks!

                superceleron , I've tried this rom and most things seem to be working fine. Certainly it is much better than the rom which came with the device. One thing I have not been able to get working is the wired ethernet port. I believe part of the issue is that the mac address is 00:00:00:00 . The wi-fi works fine. Any ideas?

                BTW, thank-you for the work you have put into this.

                Ok. I found the problem. It was my fault. I do not have the right hardware for this rom. I do not have the alphawise z28. I have the other z28. I loaded the other rom and everything is fine. Thanks.

                        It has been a while since I worked on Rockchip Android TV box. I just ordered this box and was wondering whether the public rockchip-linux kernel GIT is usable on this device.
