    Hello Ava, Outstanding! I do not own these devices(I have the UT3), but seeing Ugoos support devices that are not their latest, is fantastic.
    I think it bodes well for all Ugoos device owners.
    Thank you for the continuing support.

      Being an owner of 2 UT2s I'm very happy to see this and am willing to help de-bug.

      I just installed it on a UT2 with 32GB and an RK3188T chip. It's very smooth and fast and so far its a great ROM. Only problem I have is the remote that came with the UT2 does not function as it should. The red,green, yellow and blue buttons do nothing. I think the red was supposed to turn on/off mouse mode and right now the menu button is doing that. All other buttons seem to be OK even if used with Kodi! Installed Kodi 14.2 and it's working very well and tomorrow I will test 5.1 passthrough on my TV. right now I'm on a PC monitor for the video out.

      So thank you Ugoos Team! You've done a great job! Now, how about a Lollipop?

          Happy to try on my UM2 - nice to see an update after so long.

          So far all looking good but have only just installed it and reinstalled some apps - looking forward to next update that can be done OTA so don't lose my settings etc. Will play with Kodi later after have re-configured it.

          If you are able to get the UK Catch Up services All4 and Demand5 to work that would be excellent - they get further than they normally do but when trying to play back a video they say its not available - they used to just sit there with the wait icon going round and round :-)

          Could you increase the app space from 1GB?

            Here's something I noticed with this ROM and others as well, so it must be a bug in KK....

            If you open the App Manager and go to All Apps then select an app and disable that app, when you return to the All Apps list it does not refresh the list of All Apps UNTIL you scroll the list up/down or sideways. Likewise with the Move To SDCard list. If you click an app to move and then select Move to SDcard and come back to the list the tick in the box won't appear until you scroll the list. Looks like lists don't refresh properly for what ever reason.....

            Also note: If you set a static IP for Ethernet connection you will get hung at boot up in the Ugoos boot animation screen. Unplugging the cat5 cable at this point will allow it to complete the boot up sequence.

              I'm guessing that the UT1 firmware isn't rooted ?

                UT2 FW is not rooted so probably not.

                  According to the App "Root Checker" it isn't rooted. That's a pity, because half of my apps do need root access.

                  Nevertheless: This ROM is awesome! Thank you UGOOS for establishing an after sales support after such a long time. According to the newest Antutu Benchmark I got almost 26000! points with my UT1 (I hope there is no cheating involved). The remote control works like a charm (except for the coloured buttons and 2 or 3 of the other buttons) and if you replace the standard launcher with Nova your UT1 will fly. Kodi works fine as well (tested some mkv-streaming from my NAS over WiFi). But since there's always room for improvement:

                  1. Please add root support to this ROM (Maybe Riley oder FinlessBob can help).
                  2. Please add the bluetooth section in the settings and implement the driver for the CSR8510 A10 USB Bluetooth dongle (best choice because it's cheap and supports apt-x) into the kernel. Since there is no built-in bluetooth chipset, this is the only way to upgrade the UT1. I startet a thread addressing this issue here: LINK
                  3. Please update to Kitkat 4.4.4 Build KTU84Q.
                  4. Please add Overclocking Options like in the Unofficial CM11 for the Freakbox: LINK
                  5. Are there any sources available? Is it possible that you extract the kernel from the image and make it available for download?

                  Thanks again. Looks like somebody did their homework...

                      Thanks for that.I'd be happy to install it if I could get root access.

                        1. The ability to install root will appear in the next version
                        2,4. Thanks for the links. Perhaps in the near future we will implement it.
                        3. Sorry, but now we not planning updating the firmware to version 4.4.4 .
                        5. You can download unpacked firmware for UT1 from here

                          No, I left it booting for more than 2 hours with no success.
                          According the RKBatch tool, the flash was succesfull with the 'Upgrade' option. (The 'Restore' option which is often recommended fails).
                          I have the UT1 connected by HDMI which apparently works as I can see it on my TV. The device is connected by ethernet cable.

                          Any other ideas ?

                            Please try reload firmware and reflash the again . And can you send to me picture with screen?

                            update: Just downloaded firmware and flashed the device, all work... Which version of device you have? How many memory you have on your UT1? 16gb?
