Hello again folks!
I am back with a new ROM for the MK808.
I am calling this 1.5a. It is made from the Mk808 10/27 release.
This is what I have done to the ROM to customize it:
Release Notes for 1.5a:
1) This release does not corrupt the file system anymore with the reboot APP or unplugging.
2) Wifi still drops from 65 down depending on conditions.
However because I added init.d support to this ROM I also added a script that runs every boot up.
The script sets the following:
# sets the wlan0 to 65mbs
iwconfig wlan0 rate 65 fixed
# turns off power management.
iwconfig wlan0 power off
Thanks to deadhp1 for this idea. I have tested this and it seems to work. I only once dropped to 58mbps.
But I have not seen it drop lower. So I am not sure this fixes it or not but it seems to.
If you want to remove this script, since you are rooted use ES File Explorer.
Make sure root is set and system is mounted RW in ES File Explorer settings.
got to /etc/init.d and delete the script 00wifi
3) Since my last release Google had 2 updates and I updated this ROM.
Google Play store version 3.9.16
Google Search update.
4) This time I did NOT patch the wifi drivers like 1.5.
While the patch seemed to work for some, it also seemed to mess up others.
So for this release I did not patch Wifi except for the script mentioned above which you can remove.
5) Build.prop twekas for general performance and youtube/netflix buffering performance:
I added this to build.prop. Again since you are rooted you can edit them out if you want.
# My tweaks for Netflix and Youtube buffer issues
# To turn these off just put a pound symbol in front like this line.
# A pound symbol means a comment line so you know.
# My Tweaks for performance
# To turn these off and turn on defaults comment out the next 3 lines and remove the pound symbol from the last 2.
These are the updates for 1.5a. Everything else below still applies like my 1.5 ROM.
Features in 1.5a ROM:
1) Fully rooted with the latest SU and SUperUser.apk
2) Debloated of china and other junk APPs.
3) Special add for this ROM. Full init.d support! If you do not know what that is... ignore it.
If you do, you can now install and use boot time scripts like V6 SUper Charger!
4) All APPs are up to date as of 11/03/2012! So you will not get any Google Play APPs needing updated.
5) I added the RK launcher and RK Setting like the MX1 and UG802. So you now have a choice of which launcher you want to use! You will get asked which launcher to use on first boot.
6) Cleaned up the file system so it is not fragmented! Basicly I used linux tune2fs when making the images.
7) I added a reboot APP that will allow you to reboot the device from the Android UI. No more unplugging the unit! It will also allow you to reboot to ROM flash mode and later when I add ClockWork Mod, it will reboot to recovery.
8) ADDED BONUS User APP space by default is only 1.5GB. I have increased that to 2Gig.
9) The Xbox XPAD.KO module is now injected on boot. This was by request! Enjoy!
10) My custom init.d wifi script and build.prop tweaks as stated above in the release notes.
In the ROM kit there is a read me! This has full instructions for how to upgrade. So PLEASE read the read me!
