    Im flashing it right now. I'll include it in my video. The video should be done by tonight on somecooltech on youtube.
    Also I thought the 4.1.1 ROM was actually really good. I was very happy with it except that some apps coun't be installed. Finless ROMs always fix that though.

    Cheers

    Can someone please help me out. Video playback is not very smooth on my cx-919 and I was wondering if this was a problem with the hardware itself. Prior to 4.2 mp4's would not work it mx player and even now i noticve frame skipping on mx player and netflix. I feel like there is something wrong with my device and any help would be appreciated. Further how do I make this device true 1080p?

    4.2.2 ROM so far

    Most things seem to be working well on this 4.2.2 ROM except my Wifi can't connect. It comes with a lot of nice apps too and most things seem to work well but wifi sees my router but only connects for a second then won't try again. On 4.1.1 it was working great. This ROM is pretty fast too but I'd stick with 4.1.1 until we figure out whats going wifi.

    Plus side so far.
    I installed Go Launcher HD, display looks very clean and crip.
    Still pretty fast, maybe just slightly slower than 4.1.1 which was really fast.
    rooted

    Cons
    Wifi
    Webcam (Logitech c525) not working.



    I think one more update will really make this ROM nice.

    CX-919 update

    OK i got my Wifi working by simply rebooting the router. I don't know why this worked I almost never need to do that. Anyway it worked. Also Netflix works well on 4.2.2 too which is great. Also video play back in MX player works well too.

    Sometimes routers can get stuck on a MAC and not be able to give and IP Address. Expecially when you connect and reconnect a bunch of times in a short time. This has happened a few times for me.

    My quick report on 4.2.2 ROM

    1) Netflix seems smooth to me! I do not see the problematic frame skipping some see on most other 3188 devices.

    2) My C310/610 camera works fine. Skype works 100%. The MIC also works from the tape recorder APP.

    3) I plugged in my El Cheapo 2.1 USB sound device and it also works!

    4) This ROM is not properly rooted! Not sure why some reported it is pre-rooted. ES File explorer gets root but many other APPs do not and SuperSU once installed cannot update the SU binary. I will fix that in my up coming ROM.

    5) The launcher is laggy as hell for me. It takes several minutes after boot to calm down so the launcher gets smooth. They have way to many widgets on the screen which is causing this. I will give you guys a choice of launchers just like in my 4.1.1 ROM.

    6) There is TRASH all over this ROM. APKs at the root file system that do not get installed, etc... I will clean all this crap up.

    7) Not sure why the provision service removes the camera APP. Need to test this. They usually remove stock SDK APPs because they do not work. We shall see.

    However with all that said! This is the best 4.2.2 ROM I have seen yet for ANY 3188 TV stick.


    Just what I have found so far.

    Yes, it does support A2DP. I can listen to my bluetooth headphones with this stick.

    I have to say, what a great stick. It is chewing through anything I throw at it. I can easily play a floating video whilst surfing the net. This is my first experience of the RK3188 and it really seems to excel. Wifi is also rock solid and colours seem crisper and more vivid. Such a difference when upgrading from the RK3066. It can only get better also with Bob's custom ROMs.

    The ROM is properly rooted, it's just using one of Google's standard su binaries that you normally do not find outside development builds - a GUI-based Superuser/SuperSU/whatever install uses a different binary.

    The problem is that a lot of root app developers make wrong assumptions on how su binaries work - they expect specifically a modern Superuser or SuperSU binary. For further information, see this link here: http://su.chainfire.eu/.

    The reason SuperSU installation fails is not because of a bad root, it's because there's not enough space available on /system, once you delete some ringtones or whatnot, SuperSU installs just fine - at least it did for me.

    I like this stick though, running on the stock 4.2 firmware, I turned it into a wireless controller for DSLR Controller - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkgdTi3OLv8

    I'm not sure why that is. My a2dp headphones work fine on it.
