Is there a stock ROM available for this? If so at least I can make a ROM that is rooted and debloated for you.

Hi Bob, yes there is this is the link http://www.mk809.com/cs102II/en/Download.html

I do find it funny thought they released this firmware, same time 15/12/2012 as iMito, which lead me to think that this may be just a iMito MX1/2 clone, the specs look exactly the same: How can I do a full hardware compare?

I am thinking of testing your MX rom on my MK809II tonight.

It maybe a clone. Since you have a stock ROM you could flash the Imito and try it and if it does not work you can easily go back.

Just to confirm, flashed Finless Rom 1.5, on MX809II and it works fine.

Wifi would not start on first boot, but on second connected no prob.

Tested Ethernet that fine to no prob....

Going to test drive now for a few hours report back later .....

Looking great so far!!!!!!!!

Just on question how does one change the default mouse cursor? The stock ROM had a lot bigger one on it?

Hi Bob,

Tried to flash your 1.5 on my MK809. It seems to work well except for the wifi. The MK809 has only 4GB of ram and no bluetooth. There is a different ROM on the mk809 site:

http://www.mk809.com/cs102/UploadFiles/rk3066_mk809_Launcher2_public_TFupgrade_20121121.z ip

Do you think it would be possible to integrate the MK809 wifi module into the finless 1.5 rom? Some of the other benefits of finless have survived the revert to stock: resized system partition, 1080p now working, screen resize are the only ones I tested.

If you are too busy, maybe you could just offer some tips on integrating the module. I am comfortable decompiling and recompiling the ROM, though your approach looks pretty different at first glance. More to learn!

Cheers, esteban

Do this. Take the ROM link you gave me and unpack it and copy out kernel.img. Then in my 1.5 kit put that kernel.img and replace the one I have in there. Reflash the ROM with that new kernel. It should fix wifi.

Will try this, thanks for the advice. Will this approach not lose many of the benefits of the finless rom though? The 1080p, xbox mods, CIFS etc?

Hi.
My MK809II arrived yesterday.
A user on xda says that after flashing mx finless his wi-fi is not working anymore, not just on first boot as the above user.
I can try to use kernel from original fw. Which feature will I loose?
Thanks.

Ops... original rom is .img format, I can't extract just kernel.

Hi all,

Sorry for the confusion - people seem to have MK809II wifi working well. I tried the same finless 1.5 rom on the MK809 with 4GB storage, no bluetooth, and wifi didn't work there.

I will continue any further reports following Bob's advice in a separate thread.

I did not flash it yet, because my MK809II does not work.
In the box I found a 1A ac adapter, maybe it's not powerful enough.

i did flash finnless rom and the cwm-recovery image successfully on my mk809 .
but first of all i had to do a hard - reset like described here: http://www.mk809.com/cs102/UploadFiles/mk809%20recovery%20tool%20and%20instruction.zip

flashed over the the recovery stock-rom, than finless rom and than finaly the cwm-rom .

All is working but Wifi.

Saw the posting about the kernel.img dump and reinserting this into the finless rom, but had not yet a chance to get this done. Maybe some can step in here?

thnx in advance.

Can someone that still has original rom check the real max working cpu frequency?
After flashing iMito MX1 rom even if I can set 1.6GHz, it does not go over 1.2GHz.

Hi Finless,
would you mind putting Terminal in your next ROM. I couldn't get your patcher to reboot my icube MK809II into loader mode so I did it from terminal on the device but then my wifi was working after the patch.
I wasn't able to get online as the wifi didn't work so I can't install terminal myself. I'm stuck at the moment without internet access.

just discovered that 1.7 isn't compatible with the mk809ii. I will try and get a compatible 1.5 or 1.6 and reflash.

Miles better than the stock ROM that was on my icube mk809ii

CWM is not a OS so it does not have wifi! You must use a USB mouse or keyboard.

I tried SetCPU on the stock rom, would not go over 1.2, think its limited in the kernel!

...no one have an opinion about?
As I saw its something related to JW Player or Java scripts, that "CC" subtitle button is an java applet.

Hey guys
I wish to install Finless 1.7 system and 2dark4u 1080p kernel with max overclock on my mk809II. But at the same time I want to use PicUnto, so I need a dual boot. The main issue of PicUntu is that there is no hw acceleration support of Mali 400 in the original pack. So, I've found a modded PicUntu for MK808 that have hw acceleration. There is a source (http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/63658-ubuntu-1210-mk808-v10-rootfsimg-hw-mali400/). The pack contains from:
Kernel (by olegk0): kernel-mk808-olegk0.img (http://content.wuala.com/contents/NeoPhyTe.x360/Publica/mk808-kernel-olegk0/recovery.img?dl=1)
Rootfs: ubuntu_12.10_mk808_v1.0_neophyte.x360.img.gz (http://content.wuala.com/contents/NeoPhyTe.x360/Publica/ubuntu_12.10_mk808_v1.0_neophyte.x360-olegk0.img.gz?dl=1)
As I understand, I should use this kernel to boot up ubuntu, but can it be installed on mk809II? I don't need wi-fi or bluetooth. Is there a way to come back to 2dark4u kernel, if it wouldn't work?
Of cause it's sad, cause even in case of lucky install, my MK809II with this mk808 kernel will not give me same performance as on 2dark4u kernel.
Finless, maybe you can integrate mali400 drivers (http://malideveloper.arm.com/develop-for-mali/drivers/open-source-mali-gpus-linux-kernel-device-drivers/) to your overclocked kernel, so we can use this performance on linux?
Linux on android tv stick is very interesting theme, cause there is a torrent stream tv engine (http://forum.torrentstream.org/index.php?topic=1395.0) released on ubuntu. So if you have such device with ubuntu, you can watch torrent streamed tv for free. There a lot of channels, included HD. In case that IPTV is not free and list of channels is not big, this technology will be very popular.
P.S. Sorry for my English.

Finless
04-04-2013, 08:28 AM
If you read the intructions for Picuntu you will see that the linux kernel is installed to the recovery area. Thats how it dual boots! The Android kernel stay in the kernel area. So you can have any android kernel you want.
