what happened to the remote functions? It seems everyone's doesn't work after 1.2.2 update. Other than that this rom is very very good


yeah, the remote seems not work. But my air mouse and keyboard does :D

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to say thank you to Lewy20041 and everyone else who has been working on this rom. I installed it today on my CS918 I got off eBay. ( sorry bought it before seeing this thread or Geekbuying, next one comes from them when they get the T42 going)

Everything went fine after manually installing driver when trying to flash ROM. Some reason Windows would never prompt to browse for driver when auto installing.

Playing well with MX and HW decoding for 720p files. 1080p hit and miss.
For some reason XBMC installer from settings menu would not download apk. Had to manually install XAF version. Hope that's the best one to be using. XBMC SMB drive mapping is working well with CIFS for pulling files from my NAS drive.

Another plus was VPN would not work on stock image. Works great now with this upgrade.
Netflix also working good.

Stock remote working, t2 fly mouse works okay though I have to figure out how to map a back/ menu button for it so I can update my library with that device when in xbmc. Little things that have nothing to do with your rom.

Thanks very much. Keep up the excellent work. Hoping you adapt a version for the BT version when it ships.

Thanks lewy20041 for your good works.
I flashed the 1.2.2 on my UT1.

I can't use the IR remote and constantly reboot due to error "Unfortunately, Gallery has stopped" which I don't face it on the 1.2.0. Is this beacause of the beta version?

Again, apprecaite your great support.

Lewy, thanks very much for your hard work and easy to use guides. Clearly a massive upgrade on the native firmware!

Quick question on which version of XBMC you would recommend? I ran the installer from the specials section in the settings menu and this takes me to the page of the nightly builds.

Hi lewy,
I just flashed 1.2.2 on my K-R42.
The screen blurred and frozen, and then it shutdown. Both 720p and 1080p kernel.
Is there anybody has the same problem with me?

Just got the K-R42 and flashed the 1.2.2 720p and got no problems with the ROM.

This XBMC version from Minix seems to work great!

What a great box, what a great ROM!! This is SO much better than the MeLE A1000G - it's like a whole different world to use this box.

Is it possible to get a smaller mouse pointer, the arrow is quite big? :)

Your release notes says that an advancedsettings.xml for XBMC will be automatically installed but I don't think that is still so - otherwise they got deleted when I uninstalled one of the XBMC versions.. and how do I then get a new one?

Yes this is a good box, I also got a 1000g yesterday and am going to try it out. I had an a31 stick before and the video was noticeably better.

Google Play Music All Access got problems (but people also write about that in another thread)

I haven't watched a whole movie but using the Netflix from Google Play seems to work fine here with the movies I've tried so far. After maybe 1 min the picture is ok and not pixelated any more.

I also find the standard YouTube app from Google Play far easier to use than the included Google TV version.

Hey Lewy,
thanks for your great work! I hope my K-R42 is comming soon, bought at geekbuing. Can you please add the date of the FW version in the first Post? So it is easyier to find the still actuall posts.
Is the pre-installed XBMC-installer the best choice for an "shutter-free" 1080p view or is XBMC full installed in your ROM?
Is it nessesary to install the kernels from wasser manualy, or are they included? And how to install them?

Chris

Hi there,

The Beta (latest) versions of the ROM just point you to the android nightly build page of XBMC, I believe the earlier versions pointed to an installer hosted by Lewy but it was costing him too much to support without donations.
I think Lewy plans on creating a new version of the ROM now the kernels are released.

I don't understand Polish either - but it's just input how many US dollars you want to donate in the top, logon at the bottom and then the next page will be in the language you usually use. It's far from rocket science :)

I also have screen issues.

Stock HDMI cable.

The problems are only in 1080P 50/60 HDMI mode.
In 720p HDMI mode they aren't any problems with the picture.

I didin't try new kernles to 1.2.2 ROM.

What is the hybrid part of this rom, is that just a naming scheme or does it relate to something?

I look forward to testing this on my CX919 (Monday), does anyone have any kernels with success stories? MK908 is supposed to be the same but it hasn't worked for me so far. Black screen when booting.

Thanks in advance!

I hope everything goes well with the SDK 2 rom. I'll check that out too.

Flashed my k-r42 last night. mx player 1080p is flawless from smb share

I went with lewy 1.2.0 stable and I am very impressed. This box is good I can see much more potential than my mk808b

I installed xbmc using the mini x link a few posts back but 1080p is not good. I am running 1080p kernel but I dont see the hw accelleration (libstagefrige) option in xbmc video settings - any reason why? Should I use advancedsettings.xml for this option to become available? The video was poor.

keep up the good work and a donation will be coming your way very soon.

also I cant get any dvd iso files to play in xbmc either. I think that is an xbmc issue though.

Personally I will strongly recommend trying the 1.2.2 it works so much better on my box. The 1.2.0 had several slowdowns and fc's here where the 1.2.2 is a lot more solid and seems to be a lot better at playing back video. I'm using the 720p kernel as I use the box with my 26" bedroom TV. Almost too bad as the picture is also great on my 42" livingroom plasma :)

there is esiest way.
but you need to use 1 module
its not in the package
its only need if you have autorization on your nas etc
and its caled md4.ko
i will ask leo to compile it wen he find some free time.

you can mount your share at startup
by putting this line into /etc/install-recovery.sh

mkdir /mnt/Volume_1
mkdir /mnt/Volume_2
busybox sleep 80
busybox mount -t cifs //192.168.1.102/volume_1 /mnt/Volume_1 -o user=yourusername,pass=password
busybox mount -t cifs //192.168.1.102/volume_2 /mnt/Volume_2 -o user=yourusername,pass=password
remember about permision after changes it should be "rwx --- ---"

I could connect k-r42 via ssh to my pc, but I couldn't modify permissions, create new files, edit install-recovery.sh.., etc. Could someone help me? Thanks!

First, sorry for offtopic

Please, can you publish link to cifs.ko, nls_utf8.ko and md4.ko modules for 3188 CPU ?
I will try to recompile kernel for another 3188 android stick with those modules.
Thanks.

Personally I will strongly recommend trying the 1.2.2 it works so much better on my box. The 1.2.0 had several slowdowns and fc's here where the 1.2.2 is a lot more solid and seems to be a lot better at playing back video. I'm using the 720p kernel as I use the box with my 26" bedroom TV. Almost too bad as the picture is also great on my 42" livingroom plasma :) But does the stock remote work with 1.2.0? I understand 1.2.2is better performing but I couldn't get the remote to function with 1.2.2

For me it is not black or white. Generally the Remote does work. But some Keys don't (e.g. the "color"-keys) and others do not work as expected (e.g. "Back" seems to be "Home").
Additionally the nice feature of switiching to mouse-mode does not work at all.

Btw. Is there a way to get access to the kernel sources and configuration of the kernel used in 1.2.2? I would like to make own changes and build own kernels for myself to investigate the fact that my R-K42 is changing the MAC address of the LAN with every reboot.

This understandable, but I should like to not to spend time for cleaning the firmware and install program itself, which I need.

You need to learn how these things work. Mostly they work the way the developer wants. Sometimes developers implements requests. Most of the time they ignore demands.

I get really upset reading your posts. You can't be bothered to do anything yourself because you don't have time? And you want a specific person to answer your questions?

If this is your first visit to any forum then I could understand. Also if you are just a couple of years old I understand. If not, you should really think twice about what you let other people see that you write.

Of course, it could also be a language barrier thing, in which case I could also understand some of the things you wrote.

In all other cases, please apologize and try again. And show some respect.

Thank you very much for v1.0.0 720p firmware... I have tested on CS918 and have the following issues:

1. SPDIF audio port not working and no settings as well
2. Wifi not working
3. Not sure why the system bar display at the bottom is partially hidden (pls refer to attached image)
4. Remote controller not working
5. Air mouse key mapping is wrong
Other than the above issues, firmware is awesome is fast...
Perhaps item 3 have something to do with settings.. yet to explore or someone kind enough to advise.

Good job! Keep it up you guys are great!

1. Image size is also 720, no 1080. There are big black margin on screen around the Android interface. Is it correct? And in XBMC i see 720 screen too. Why?

2. No sound on 2 channel TV-out connector. In settings there are SPDIF and HDMI outputs to select. In 1.2.1 was SPDIF and analog 2.0 output, but in 1.2.2 no analog 2.0 output in sound settongs. Unfortunately, I dont have speakers in my TV and i dont have any device with spdif input

Hello,

I bought my device as a K-R42 (which in essence is the same as the CS918). But maybe the bundled remote is different? Mine remote has 31 keys (if I do count the up/down/left/right/OK individually) with the following Layout:

Power Mute
Red Green Yellow Blue
Vol- FRWD FFWD Vol+
Home Return

Up
left OK right
Down

Menu Mouse
1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
A/a 0 Back


Cheers,
Michael

P.S. I now went back to Version 1.2.0 where the remote does work perfectly.

Hello guys
I got back very late last night from holiday and couldnt help myself... flashed the new 1.2.2 rom.

As mentioned by others, it is crashing a lot, basically freezes then shuts off, sometimes using spotify, sometimes xbmc, or even es file explorer or titanium backup.

USB audio works WOOO HOOO, since I have a usb DAC to connect to my hifi, 1080p playback is pretty good on xbmc, but xbmc has so many script errors and the freezing system also makes it unworkable at the moment.

Oddly the xbmc nightlies boosts the audio so it distorts with some albums (tried alt-j) but the 12.2 released frodo is fine, so are all other music playing software on the device.

Now i'm a bit torn, want usb audio for better quality, so have to use 1.2.2 but cant use 1.2.2 for more than curiosity as it is way too unstable...

Anyhow, you guys are doing a wonderful job, thanks, keep it up :)

Mark.

Image resolution is 100% 1080p but just after instalation HDMI output is set to 720p-60. Go to Settings -> Screen and choose apropriate HDMI mode. As you go there try to set Screen Scale to your liking or need.

Big icons and text are associated with high dpi value (240) in /system/build.prop file.



2. No sound on 2 channel TV-out connector. In settings there are SPDIF and HDMI outputs to select. In 1.2.1 was SPDIF and analog 2.0 output, but in 1.2.2 no analog 2.0 output in sound settongs. Unfortunately, I dont have speakers in my TV and i dont have any device with spdif input

Please, tell me, what i need to do for correct these bugs?

Analog audio doesn't work in HFW v. 1.2.2. You need newer kernel from wasser. You can get it there (http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.php?5957-K-R42-Hybrid-Firmware-(HFW)-1-1-0-by-lewy20041&p=90756&viewfull=1#post90756). Then you can write it to the box with RKAndroidTool (at least version 1.37). Follow included instructions but remember to flash only proper kernel.

P.S. I now went back to Version 1.2.0 where the remote does work perfectly.

Remote control does work in HFW version 1.2.2 but not completely. Some key press doesn't generate scan codes (e.g. keys 1-9 and colored) and some scan codes are associated with wrong android key codes (MENU, HOME, RETURN). The second one can be quite easily repaired with proper change in configuration file (/system/usr/keylayout/rkxx-remotectl.kl) but first issue can be corrected only with kernel compilation as stated in this (http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.php?5957-K-R42-Hybrid-Firmware-(HFW)-1-1-0-by-lewy20041&p=91745&viewfull=1#post91745) post.

Hello All,

I just registered to send my big thanks to all the developers, and also the people reporting bugs thus helping remediation of all issues.

I bought something differently named, but exactly same hardware from Pandawill, HI718. It is black and has the same remote as pictured some comment ago. Installed 1.2.2 1080p firmware, and it is working nicely for me, I have no unexpected reboots so far, I was able to complete Antutu (3.x and also the new 4.something). XBMC also runs okay (downloaded one from xbmchub.com), I am playing back files from my Windows HTPC via standard Windows SMB share.

My Logitech MK250 Keyboard and mouse works fine, it just not hide the soft keyboard when I am using it. Original remote works partially, as I am no longer able to turn on mouse mode

I also have a RC11 airmouse-keyboard combo which has a tendency to switch off mouse mode, but that is unrelated as it does the same on my PC too.

Both wired and wireless ethernet works too. I found a funny issue with Play Store when you set update only on Wifi it literally means it, so it does not do anything on wired however that supposed to be free too, but it indefinitely waited for connection until I realized that.

Only thing that bothered me with these Android sticks and boxes (this is my 3rd so far) that shutdown does not seems to work, it simply reboots its. I assume developers already working on it and I am not worrying :D

My plan is to use it as a terminal client for my HTPC (2x Client works nicely, but mouse cursor is enormous in android), so I can replace the old Dell D600 that I am typing on now, and occasionally use it as a mediaplayer. Web browsing works, but I still feel that it is faster via a terminal than in any browser I've tried so far.

I also downloaded the latest Wasser kernels, but haven't had time yet to try those.

Keep up the good work, I really appreciate your enthusiasm and excellence!

Edit:
I have not seen any screen issues so far (no weird pixels etc). Using the original cable with a female-female extender to a standard HDMI cable to my fullHD Philips TV, plus used the same method to my monitor via hdmi-DVI cable and 720p only. HDMI Audio also worked on the TV, sadly my monitor is not HDMI sound compatible (ordered a new one, will get it next week)

HDMI Audio also worked on the TV, sadly my monitor is not HDMI sound compatible (ordered a new one, will get it next week)
I've especially bought Android Box and not cheeper "stick" because it has analog audio out. But as far as I know it only work out of the box in original firmware and HFW version prior to 1.2.1. To use analog output in HFW v 1.2.2 you should flash newer kernel from wasser as I did.


Right now my biggest concern with this ROM is Google Calendar not working. I cannot add new events or even read/sync with my calendar(s). To remedy this I tried to install it as system app (/system/app) and even wipe NAND and internal storage (factory reset). Anybody know what to try next?


Second encountered problem is that there is a lot of "spam" in logcat:
E/SurfaceFlinger( 91): eventControl(0, 1) failed Operation not permitted
E/hwcomposer( 91): RK_FBIOSET_VSYNC_ENABLE err=-1


There is propably fix for it but it require to recompile kernel:
http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.php?5939-Fixing-RK3188-video-playback&p=91319&viewfull=1#post91319


As for random soft restart (and some short term freezes) I've got quite a lot of them but after flash wipe non so far. I think that might be associeted with "too much" changes in system setting e.g. language, wallpaper (I had got live one) and especially in "Developer Options" (guilty as charge ;]).


P.S. I've put newest kernel version available to general public from wasser dated as 28 of August. Therefor some of my problems might not be encountered by all with HFW v 1.2.2.

The new 1080p/720p/480p kernels and the kernel modules are uploaded. I built several drivers (like cifs/ntfs/bt/usb network driver) as modules to keep the kernel small due to better performance. So i strong recommend to use the my new kernel modules.The kernel-1080p supports 24hz/25Hz/30Hz.http://d-h.st/wS5 http://d-h.st/4Su

@wasser Thank you so much for your kernels and module. However when I try to flash your kernel_1080p image with KRBatchtool it shows firmware download failed. I am currently using V1.2.2_1080p on CS918. Could you kindly provide some guide on how to use or install your kernel and modules. Thanking you in advance.:CLAP

I don't have time now to write complete guide but I can give you some tips.
Use driver from HFW.

Use driver from HFW.

@Gormar, Indeed thank you for your prompt response. Manage to install kernel but still trying to figure out how to install .ko modules. Any hints?
In setting, any clues what is xbmc download and what is it meant for?

I must say the ROM is awesome!!:BANANA

It will be appreciated by many. Thank you for your hard work.

At the moment I'm testing stability od this firmware and I must say that after some problems few days ago now after factory reset it's looking very good. But to be safe I lowered CPU OC from 1,8GHz to nominal clock (1,6GHz) and didn't change to many configuration options. Just these which I had too :). I think that to OC this puppy it needs heatsink on CPU. Any suggestions?


BTW. Does Google Calendar not work only for me or it is one of the problems in this firmware? It was suprise that it wasn't installed by default.

Manage to install kernel but still trying to figure out how to install .ko modules. Any hints?The easiest way to install kernel modules it is to copy them into system partition. To do so you must remount it for RW operation. Go to terminal and type:
su
mount -o remount,rw /system
Then copy new unzipped modules into /system/lib/modules. After that do not forget to remount /system into RO mode.


But from my expirience this whole opperation isn't necessary. Primarly because not all kernel modules are included into zip archive supplied by wasser. You can even say these are optional/additional. The only one used/loaded at boot is ntfs.ko but to my utmost suprise it isn't necesary to support R/W operation on NTFS USB pendrive. Therefor it must be included into kernel. Maybe it wasn't the case before.

Image resolution is 100% 1080p but just after instalation HDMI output is set to 720p-60. Go to Settings -> Screen and choose apropriate HDMI mode. As you go there try to set Screen Scale to your liking or need.

Big icons and text are associated with high dpi value (240) in /system/build.prop file.
No, i mean that in 1.2.2-1080p firmware i have only max 1280х720 resolution in screen settings. I don't see 1920x1080 option
But my monitor supports resolutions up to 1920x1200




Analog audio doesn't work in HFW v. 1.2.2. You need newer kernel from wasser. You can get it there (http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.php?5957-K-R42-Hybrid-Firmware-(HFW)-1-1-0-by-lewy20041&p=90756&viewfull=1#post90756). Then you can write it to the box with RKAndroidTool (at least version 1.37). Follow included instructions but remember to flash only proper kernel.
Thanks a lot, after flashing new kernel Analog sound work well! :)

LAN is still working. Random MAC is a feature not a bug. It grants high anonimity for the device ;).

If you need fixed MAC then you can deploy some temporary countermeasures.
Create new file e.g. 01SETMAC then open it for editing and paste:
ip link set eth0 down
ip link set eth0 address 00:01:02:03:04:05
ip link set eth0 up
Remember to change MAC address to your liking.

Then remount system partition in RW mode:
mount -o remount,rw /system
and copy that file into /etc/init.d directory.

Finaly change owner and access rights:
chown root.shell /etc/init.d/01SETMAC
chmod 755 /etc/init.d/01SETMAC


After that remount system partition in RO mode. a' voala

Probably there is but not for K-R42 box.


Patching and compiling kernel isn't exactly rocket science but without proper config files it can be quite a pain in the ass to just successfully finish that process. Not to mention even getting functional one ;). Initrd you can salvage from wasser kernel. One good thing is that it is almost impossible to brick a device flashing only kernel because we didn't touch bootloader therefor it is always possibility to run recovery mode and flash complete firmware. And in most cases we shouldn't lose our data from internal memory.


But smartest and easiest thing to do is to politely ask wasser to make changes to his kernel source and compile one more time for as all. Especially now that there are pending problems/bugs which are quite good documented and can be squashed in one go:

in settings>accounts>google you will not find calendar as an option for syncing.
if you download google calendar and go to settings and choose your email address, it will say no calendars... so somehow the calendar function has been completely removed.

lucky you to have stability on 1.2.2, I cannot use it at all, it shuts off every 5-10 minutes, sometimes even less, especially bad after flashing wasser kernel, but that may have been just by chance.

This is my first post. First of all, thank you for all the development efforts!

Any chance of software enable the device to boot if/when the power is connected, and/or boot the device with an IR remote? My non-bluetooth CS918 is powered by the USB port on my TV, and it would be a nice feature not to have to physically press the power button on this device to have it booting up.

Edit: And secondly, can a Windows RC6 IR receiver be connected and configured to controll XBMC as the IR codes from the included remote are hard as he#$ to import into Logitech's Harmony remote software.

Hi All

I have installed 1.2.2 and it generally works OK, but when I'm testing XBMC on 1080p24 Bluray or HDDVD rips I am getting stuttering and a large number of dropped frames and the video is playing at about 10-15 fps.

Is this likely to be:
a) A hardware limitation
b) An android software limitation
c) An XBMC software limitation
d) A software configuration issue

Is there anyone with smooth (or mostly smooth) playback of 1080p24 material? Can you playback 24fps material on Android?

Thanks
Ben

Tech
09-08-2013, 09:34 PM
Hi Ben,

your on the right track.

a) not hardware issue as native player will play them jusy fine.
b-d) xbmc for android was made for true amlogic chips first. thats why you can watch your mvk on a single core 800-1gz amlogic chip.

exynos cpu devices can do the decoding verry well.

devices like this and ouya will rely on how well the firmware is built and support. With the xbmc team supporting ouya im sure it will inly be 3-6months untill we and ouya owners can watch 24fps of all our bd backups.

And thank you too, Wasser, very much.

But i am upload to box and test today build of 1080 kernel & don't have full success :(
From one hand, in Settings - Screen menu i see 2 new options - 1920x1080x50 and 1920x1080x60, it's good progress!
But from another hand, when i try to enable them, image resolution become looks like 1920x1080 with heavy horizontal distorsion and has some random yellow stripes and dots. And the most terrible thing - that my screen begin to blinking, image appears and disappears about once in 3-4 seconds. After some seconds, system automatically restores previous 720p resolution & image looks well but not HD :(
This reproduce in both 50 and 60Hz modes, and with monitor i haven't option for 24Hz in screen settings.

If it can give your some help, my monitor is Philips Brilliance 240PW. If i can provide your more helpful informaton, please, tell me & i will try to do it.


By the way, today i have test you new kernel not only with 16:10 monitor, but with 16:9 HD TV too, and with TV a have no problem, there are three options for 1920x1080 in Settings - Screen, they are 24, 50 & 60 Hz, and all of them works well!

got Jesurun DX05 with rom 1.2.2 and wasser kernel 09.09

Dont have installed module, not sure this is necessary

Not tested everything but provided remote doesnt run under this config, I use mele F10 instead.

Video 1080p/24 works great with 720p movies, some lag on 1080p but I have to make test with video on SD to be sure this is not a network problem.

Yes issues with LAN network, sometimes doesnot get IP via DHCP, wifi seams OK.

The power off button doesnt display menu to choose reboot or power-off, this button poweroff only.

Cant use plex with directplay, did any one solve the 4.2.2 ffmepg issue with plex ?

No, the reason of HDMI noise, in my case, not in cable.
I testind 1080p on monitor and on tv with the same cable, (and it was a cable from that i get from china with Device, in the same box)
With TV i don't have any noise with all 1080p modes, up to 60hz, but with monitor i have noisy image in all 1080p modes.

It's not a cable.

My issue stemmed from the same new cable. On my TV it worked, but when connected through my receiver it didn't properly.

Try a different cable to be sure.

wasser i just saw that your kernels newer or older arent fuly compatible with my new firmware.
some apps (many) wont install.
its due to kernel dont create device-mapper under /dev/ directory
i will try to find a work around but if you can look into the kernel it will be nice to:)
dm_mod.ko i dont know if this can be compiled as a kernel module or it need to be in kernel
itself. on stock kernel its present and working ok.

so sorry but no new firmware until this i solved.

You devs. are FUCKIN GOOD :)

After the second flash on my cs918 (jesurun, k-r42) everything started fast and fine.
I set the sound output SPDIF throughput or what, and the 5.1 worked great! It's exactly 5.1!
But no work with dts. :( It's just stereo for me.

I used a Logitech mouse 'cause my IR not react or anything. Am i must use or set something in the mapper app to use my IR?
I've got this type of remote control (http://image.arukereso.hu/full/202071957.google-android-tv-cs918-fekete.jpg)

So, my first observations the most and tried things worked perfect.

-wireless mouse
-SPDIF (optical) 5.1
-WiFi with internet

for the second run. the dts worked well. serious.
but from a sleep mode i cannot come back to use the box with fully functon.
the mouse never find. after re attach the receiver it did not do anything.

exactly the "come back" was a hard work.
while it was in sleep the main power button didn't react for any push.
for a little time left alone, and some pushes of the button, got back the box to work.

with the detach of the adapter repeaired it. reboot. started over.
the nand flash unmount it self. I remounted it.

exactly the start procedure is serious too. some time its freeze at your logo Levy, ans i must re attach the power plug to start it over.

hehe. meanwhile i wrote this i played a video continously on it.
i turned over to the TV and wohha, the sound runs continously but the picture freezed 5 minites long before.

my usb drive worked with the apk.installer application.

Hi,
just flashed my cs918, great firmware, everything works very fast! :CLAP
When i didn't have these sound problem, with the Xbmc alpha 7 build my Cs918 is
nearly perfect :)

The only thing where i have found problems is the sound.

DTS will not work, i get only noise from my receiver, and
there is an new sound problem. when i play a video, every 1-2 minutes i get a
"click" noise and the sound ist muted for about 2 seconds. On my receiver the
sound input display changes to "nothing" and comes direct back to the old stage.
Normally this happens only when the sound input changes from stereo to ac3, Dts ore
something else. So i think the CS918 send an unreadable signal every "x" minutes?

I have USB audio output.
I did not try without the usb audio output, but I am re-flashing it and will try without USB audio output to see if it still freezes.

Hi again,
I flashed again, booted with no audio cables plugged in, the device rebooted itself after a few seconds.

I then tried SPIDF cable.
The audio crackles badly when you click the interface, navigate... those fine grained static sounding crackles.
I then unplugged SPDIF and tried USB audio again, that was clean and the system did not power off again.

I am now doing a titanium backup restore and will then try audio apps and xbmc.

Cheers

K-R42 bought here in Thailand.
Using WiFi, Wireless Mouse/Keyboard (English/Thai), IR remote control
HDMI to Toshiba 720p TV, AV-out to Stereo

> Rom froze at logo on first boot.
Second boot successful.
Did minor setting changes and rebooted to test.
Installed the RK software APKs, GooglePlay apps. No issues.
Loaded Droid VNC Server and WiFi ADB for remote configuration
Android RkRemoteControl functioning fine.
Reboot to test
> Rom on startup displayed weird aspect ratio, then self corrected. Booted OK
ADB push CWM, hopefully it will stay this time.
CWM backup to /external_sd/ completed. Used RkExplorer to copy to smb shared laptop folder (just in case)

Working great. Been streaming video via TV Thailand app for a couple of hours now. Both GoogleTV and Android YouTube apps working OK.

Yay!

I think you have to manually install the driver.
After you choose "Update driver software", click the "Let me pick from a list of devices" button and then click the "Have disk" button to manually select the 64bit driver file. Choose "Install anyway" if you get a warning message.

Hi, I have installed 1.2.2 and I had no HDMI sound. Reboot didn't help. Stock firmware was OK.

After installing latest Wesser kernel, I got sound from AV-out but still not from HDMI. In XBMC, GUI sound lags as hell. Video playing sound is OK and in sync.

Also, I don't get the shutdown menu anymore (It worked before, I tried downgrading do 1.2.0 and then upgrading back to 1.2.2). If I press the button long or short, the display goes "no signal" and the device isn't responding for some time, then it turns on again (couple of minutes).

Finally, I have 1080p Avengers, which lag in XBMC. I need the 1080p to work flawlessly, how can I debug this?

Its not that you have a bad cable. Just do not use any adapters or extension combo cables. Buy a MicroUSB to USB (male) cable if you dont have one and it will work.

I had the same problem like many others. Please read the first pages in this thread about it.

i tried the videos on plex.
since this firmware (kingnovel offical, and yours before it) full hd vids are started well.
just with this fw got this 0x0 dim and blank screen error.
but the sound goes under this blank screen, so the video starts, just got some error to project it to the screen.

how can i activate the IR remote?
should i use an app for it? or what can i set to work with it?
i done everything with an Wless mouse (with usb receiver).

I just installed this new firmware and so far what I have seen is:

- No DHCP works, static IP set up and works well.
- If I turn off from the remote and I can not restart, I have to disconnect the power and reconnect.
- Pass-trought does not work, just hear constant noise, like the stock.
I see the options in the audio menu selecione pass-trought but I did not do anything.

I have a K-R42.

Hi Lewy. Thank you for the update! I downloaded and tested v2.0.1 but i have a couple of problems with my C918

AV out - I get thick yellow stripes after the first logo (the one with the Geekbuying logo). The desktop is running in the background but the stripes makes it unusable.
Hdmi - The initial resolution is set to 1080p but the signal is not stable. It shows for 2-3 seconds and then is looses the signal for a while and then it shows again for 2-3 seconds and so on. I changed the resolution to 720p 60hz in settings but same story.

I rebooted 2-3 times but nothing changes.

dear Developers,

Not strictly related to usefullness of the device ,but do anyone knows how to get rid of the enormous mouse cursor when a real mouse attached? I plan to use RDP connection and this huge thing is ruining the console experience. tried to look for an application or a hack on XDA, but found nothing.

I lent my hi718 to a colleague for the weekend but will check the new rom when I get it back.

Keep up the good work, thanks for the hard work you already did!

Then its the cable 100%.
Its not that you have a bad cable. Just do not use any adapters or extension combo cables. Buy a MicroUSB to USB (male) cable if you dont have one and it will work.

I had the same problem like many others. Please read the first pages in this thread about it.


i tryed 4 cables, same resault:
i have two my Galaxy S3 usb to microUSB original samsung cable...
also i have 2 Usb -> microUSB that cam with the cs918 order....
those 4 cables are same resault as the pic in my previos post
i am sure i miss something but don't know what...
i think its some thing about the driver


Do you need any more details to solved this problem?

Hello

I found the black screen problem at boot with fw 2.0 and 2.0.1

The problem comes from the default boot resolution that is not supported by my Sony Bravia TV.

I tried to boot with a LCD PC screen and I can see boot animation, that's fine ;-)

So I flash fw 1.2.2 with last wasser kernel and try all resolution on my Sony Bravia TV.

With 1.2.2 I can see boot as default resolution should be lower as in 2.0 firmware.

1.2.0 with default kernel, all resolution are accepted by my Bravia TV
1.2.2 with last wasser kernel all 720p resolution are OK but for 1080p only 1080p/24 is ok, /30 /50 /60 produce black screen ! Same issue as fw 2.0 boot problem.

Hope this helps !

PS: can you lower boot resolution while wasser correct something in the kernel ?

Understood, I test this.

Thank you,

checked, AC3 does not work with any player, I tested with the native and MX and nothing. With HDMI pass-thought the movie starts, it makes a noise and you hear the audio but not AC3.
With SPDIF not heard anything.

About the sleep mode, it wakes up alone. Active sleep mode but after about 10 seconds wakes up alone, this could be that some of my network service as DLNA wake the device.

Thank you,

hello,

i have a ut1 and have the same problem - with the new fw 2.0 and 2.0.1 i do not get constant screen on my tv.

with 1.2.2 and even with the 2.0 SDK i did get correct screen on my HD tv - it can not be the cable because the only thing changed is the fw + software on the ut1 - if i put 1.2.2 back - i have no problem with the resolution.

best regards
holli

My cable works fine with the stock based firmware,and its good quality but i also tried with another brand new cable with the same results. :(

After trying all resolutions, i noteced that the 576p 50/60 is stable and i tested some things.

The first thing i did was to lower the cpu frequency to 1.6Ghz to compare with the previous FW.
The overall performance is briliant!! Antutu 4 gives me 19475 (1.6Ghz) and 20799 (1.8Ghz)
The system works smooth and stable.
Wifi/internet all great like in stock. Though i dont have lan to test the dhcp issue.
My 1080p Avatar trailer plays smooth with internal, MX player and XBMC. No stuttering at all.

Wow! its really awesome. Most features seems to be working fast and fine on CS918 except for the followings issues:
1. frequent random auto shut down for no reasons (need to power up the set again).
2. Remote controller that comes with the set not working still.

Appreciated and you really make my day ... best rom for CS918 so far. Look forward to your next release of 1080p soon.

-> if i change to ANALOGE within XMBC sound is ok
-> cool xbmc out of the box - first release where i can watch hd channels and playback is smooth

1) i cannot reproduce the random shutdown in k-r42, it could be that the hardware is not 100% identical
2) it doesn't work correct because the ir remote is not the same from r-k42, it could be that the driver is not included in my kernel. Does any key from your ir remote work?

no passtrought suppor on xbmc.
to get this working you need to have pached libmedia, new ver xbmc compiled with passtrough hack + advancedsetting.xml
next ver will have it all apart from xbmc that i will put link in first post;)
as of resolution to me its better that latest wasser kernels start with 1080p rather than 720p.
if you dont have compatible tv try flashing erlier wasser kernel its starting at 720p.
and please dont report remotes not working for device difrent than k-r42 ok.
this firmware is for k-r42 and there like 5/8 clones with difrent remotes so i cant fix them all.

again hawe fun and post your findings;)
