    UPDATE 10_27! - ug802 Android mini PC TV Player - Finless ROM 1.4a Custom ROM

    UPDATE 10/27/2012!!!!

    I have updated my 1.4 ROM to 1.4a and put in some fixes people wanted. Everything in 1.4a is tha same as 1.4 but with these changes:

    1) China mobile framework.jar FIX for full Play store.
    Special Thanks to Deadhp1 from for this fix!:
    http://www.armtvtech.com/armtvtechforum/index.php

    2) I removed any flash player! You can now install whatever version you want easily!

    3) All APPS updated to latest versions (includes Youtube that works).
    You will not need to update anything in the play store as of this date 10/27

    4) I added init.d support to this ROM. If you don;t know what that is, ignore it.
    If you do know what that is you will now be able to run startup scripts like V6 Super Charger
    or even make your own!

    5) Loader is updated to 1.16. If using the "hard way" flash tool, do not uncheck that.
    Easy way update.img will install the new loader for you.

    Enjoy the update! The link below have been updated to 1.4a. Just redownload it.

    Bob

    Hello folks!

    www.In4dealz.com sent me a ug802 Android mini PC to make a custom ROM for. Well mission accomplished!
    So what is a Finless 1.4 ROM for this device?

    Features in 1.4 ROM:
    1) Fully rooted with the latest SU and SuperUser.apk
    2) System is now mounted as Read/Write.
    3) Google Play fixes applied to open the full Google Play store without changes to build.prop.
    3) Added the stock ICS Launcher. So users now have a chopice for the full Android launcher experience or use the custom launcher the ug802 comes with.
    4) Debloated of unusable APPs. In fact the stock Launcher will not show basic APPs like Google Maps, etc. in the APP list! However using the stock launcher will. However I removed all that junk for better performance.
    5) Cleaned up the file system so it is not fragmented! Basicly I used linux tune2fs when making the images.
    6) I added a reboot APP that will allow you to reboot the device from the Android UI. No more unplugging the unit!

    7) ADDED BONUS but only if you flash this ROM the hard way! User APP space by default is only 504MB.
    If you flash this ROM using the PC based flash tool, I have increased that to 1Gig. However, using the SDcard update.img method for this ROM still leaves you with 504MB. Update.img from SDcard cannot repartition the memory space. So if you want the larger APP space, use the PC flash tool.
    _____________________________________


    Now I figured out how to put this device into PC based ROM flash mode! Prior to this the only way was to put update.img on the sdcard to update. update.img does not allow you to repartition the image areas. PC flash tool does! Using my ROM flash tool (included in the kit with drivers required), you can now reboot the unit into full ROM flash mode. WHY would you want to do this? Well one thing is you can use the PC based ROM flash kit and get more user APP space! instead of a small 512mb this PC flash tool version ROM has 1 gig of APP space now

    In both ROM kit versions there is a read me! This has full instructions for how to upgrade either the PC ROM flash tool, or update.img on SDcard. So PLEASE read the read me!


    Here is the easy update.img version of my in4dealz ug802 1.4 ROM:

    ROM -> ug802 Finless 1.4 ROM easy update.img version(165 megs)


    Here is the PC based flash tool version of my in4dealz 1.4 ROM:

    ROM -> ug802 Finless 1.4 ROM PC flash tool version (165 megs)

    Enjoy,
    Bob

    Hey there Finless...Bob right?

    Im in oakland myself. we are almost neighbors! Good work on the ug802. i got one from in4dealz and it has bunk wifi and bad rom. i fixed the antenna problem but there is still the audio video sync issue with videos...does yer rom have sync issues or is it good?

    UPDATE: Still have issues with audio video sync. Reboot app is nice and wifi seems to work great. netflix won't play movies. just endlessly sits on red loading screen. and built in player as well as mx player both have a/v sync issues. does this have joydev.ko integrated so we have usb joystick support?

    Interesting reports.

    I have had no issues with netflix at all? Works fine on mine. I also have no video sync issues. Can you please elaborate on the issues? What movies are you playing? from SDcard or internal memory? codec? What player are you using?

    With my ROM you can now download and install MX video player. Have you tried alternative video players? Again however what codec, compression level of the video etc, can effect sync performance. If someone can give me a link to a sample NON-PIRATED movie I can test, I can certianly look into what is going on.

    Also I will have a video up today how to mod the unit and get better wifi signal. I truely do not think a ROM can fix wifi. Only lie to you by adjusting the wifi signal meter! Thats been my experience with tablets. The patch antenna is what it is. Stay tuned for that fix.

    As for the flash player. That thing ticks me off. Sometimes after a ROM flash when you open the browser for the first time it will install OK and you will even see the message that it is installing. Other times it does not. The BEST way is for me to remove it as a system APP and you guys just install it as a user APP. This always works!

    No wifi after upgrade

    Hi,

    I've flashed the ROM using the SD card method and afterwards the wifi cannot be turned on. It stays turned on for a few seconds but after that it switches off again. Anybody else experiencing similar problem?

    Thanks

    This is a known bug when you turn on USB access to the PC. e.g. turn on mass storage etc. Once that gets turned on, wifi will never work again. It will turn on then off right away.
    You have to unplug the unit and power it off. Then plug back in. Wifi should turn on then as long as you DO NOT turn on USB to PC connection.

    I am looking into if I can fix that bug but it is not a bug in my ROM. It's a stock manufacturer bug too.

    yeah, first thx for your rom, but original rom is a mess! besides the just now mentioned bug it has big problems in streaming various sources. audio and video are out of sync - everybody posts this and i can confirm using at least the youtube app. youtube app stops buffering and doesnt continue when playing hd vids. funny thing, even 1080p vids are working when using youtube webpage and opera with flash on wlan. that tells me, that hardware is really capable of doing lots of things after performing wlan fix to antenna. with quite usable software i may live with having antenna outside the compact stick (which isnt the sense of such tool, isnt it?), but may there be a stable rom from manufacturer soon? i really doubt and thinking about sending it back. in its current state its not even worth 30$... :-/

    Doesnt matter what vid, all have sync issues. From sd, USB hdd, samba share. The higher the res, the worse it is. 1080p mkv's are unwatchable. Built in player does it, so does mx player in hw mode. Software render in mx player sync is fine with low res Avi and mpg. But 1080p video barely plays with software render. And I can't get device to stay locked at 1080p. It makes my screen start losing signal and flashing on and off. I have to use 720p. I have an insignia brand 42inch LCD model #ns-42L780A12.

    Thanks, this solved the wifi turning on issue, however according to the settings the PC connection was off. But after a powercycling now the wifi stays turned on. But still there is no signal. The unit doesn't see my home network, although it is ot even plugged into the back of the TV but is further away and plugged into an HDMI cable...

    Hi!


    I am awaiting the arrival of my UG802, I live in Spain, I bought in in4dealz, I wonder if the wifi problem is hardware or firmware? I read a lot but I did not clarify.


    Greetings.

    FYI the current youtube APP has buffering problems thats is for sure. All the guys with tablets here notice this issue as well. I usually cook this old version into my ROMs but did not do it this time.

    What you do is use a root explorer and remove the youtube app from /system/app.

    Then install this one here:

    http://video.freaktab.com/?subpath=f...ld_youtube.zip


    Can you guys try it and report back please. At present I do not have a TV that is 1080p and all my videos I put on sdcard are also not 1080p. Probably why I have not noticed the sync issue. All my vids etc are 720 and so is my tv. I can do 1080 on my PC monitor with a DVI adpater but I get no audio. Again probably why I have not seen this yet. Soon I have to get a big 1080p TV.


    Also guys... what is the "class" of your sdcard! This is important for speed. I am using a class 10. Also there are tweaks we can do in build.prop to change the "buffer" size for the sdcard. This might also help.

    hey bob,

    its awesome that you spend time on this item... the older youtube app is buffering just fine. quite suprising with how many different issues one has to deal these days. but audio two seconds behind video still exists with 1080p.

    Yes many people are having issues with the latest youtube app!
    The 2 second audio issue is youtube you mean?

    Odd that I do not see that on my RK3066 tablet (Yaundao N101). Might have to look into this and see what files I might take from Yuandao and see if it fixes it. Might be drivers related to the audio processor though so they may not be compatible.
