Title: Version 2: S7800B 1.6GHz - (Tweaked+vSync Fix+60Hz+Apex Launcher) ROMs
Post by: WebClaw on March 06, 2014, 05:51:50 pm
Current Version: webclaw-tw116-9.img:

This is a collection of ROM's for all JXD S7800B devices (3188 & 3188-T SoC's). These ROM's include a working vSync fix (resolves frame dropping issues) in games and when playing back video / movies. Battery life is also significantly increased! Includes all previous stock JXD fixes, my previous "WebClaw ROM v1.0.2" fixes as well as SD Card Swap w/better Google Play Store compatibility.

I've tried to include fixes, patches, and features based on everyone's feedback ("some people like this, some people like that") - hence the ROM collection.

On another note, the new Kernels (dubbed by JXD as version 1.1.5 and / or KitKat versions) are [currently] terrible. I won't be creating a new / updated 1.X ROM as I think we've all beaten the 1.X versions to death. Hopefully JXD will come up with something good w/KitKat.

* Note that the GPU OC works on non-T series only; for those who have devices made post October 2013 the CPU will run at 1.6GHz but the GPU will max at 466MHz (which is still technically an OC). Attempts to bypass this (and allow the 600MHz GPU OC on all devices) resulted in choppy performance is PSX and PSP emulators. In all cases the DDR RAM will run at the same speed as the GPU (466MHz with T series and 600MHz with non T series devices).

Change Log:
117.9 // New vSync fix technique, build.prop changes (Nexus 7), updated some APK's, updated SU, updated SU binary, updated Apex Launcher.
117.8 // Beta of newer 1.5 kernels (too many issues so stopped development) - new JXD ROM team = idiots. Sticking with 1.02b kernel.
117.7 // Fixed resolution changer, removed JXD launcher, added Apex Launcher, modified build.prop, added CIFS support, new WiFi drivers
116.6 // Skipped (introduced some graphical issues).
116.5 // more build.prop changes (Samsung S4), fixed charging powered off bug, fixed stuttering bugs, fixed resume from sleep.
116.4 // build.prop and boot.img optimizations.
116.3 // Reverted back to 1.02b kernel - solved stuttering issues.
116.2 // Added new launcher, added 4GB options, cleaned up additional applications. Introduced Mali and DDR OC's.
116.1 // Initial release 4GB options, updated PlayStore hack. Fixed JXD Keymapper. Added vSync fix. Imported fixes from 1-02.

Removed (Stupid) Applications:
WifiDisplay.apk (simply put, it doesn't work right)
RkApkinstaller.apk
RkExplorer.apk (just about anything off the Play Store is better - serious users get Root Explorer)
+ anything else Chinese (bloatware crap)

* All ROM's are properly rooted with the latest SU binary and SuperSU apk. Emulators run at 60Hz.

Installation:
1. Download Rockchip Batch Tool 1.7: http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_OTM0OA/
2. Connect your S7800B to your computer via USB 2.0 (avoid USB 3.0 ports).
3. Power up your device and run the file RKBatchTool.exe (requires administrator) on your computer.
4. You'll note the tool shows a pink color indicating the status (device is connected).
5. Click the "Switch" button and your device will reboot. Install drivers via Device Manager.
6. Press the "Reset" button your device, wait for it to boot up.
7. Again, click the "Switch" button, this time the area above will turn green - programming mode ready (if it doesn't you didn't install the driver).
8. Select the desired flash image file (.img) and press "Restore".

* Boot.img (root and charging fixes), Kernel.img (overclock and general function) and System.img (vSync + JXD fixes) have been modified - you can't simply replace the Kernel. A full "Restore" is required.

Known Issues:

Why are there so many ROM releases?
The JXD S7800B is a pretty unique device. Two versions of this unit exist, and each require a different kernel to get the best speed of out them. Fix one issue, and it breaks RK3188-T devices, fix another and RK3188 users have problems. It's very hard to balance both. Competition out there really is focused on RK3188-T devices - which means they are slower but only have a single kernel (so modifications are easy to test). Further, there were many ROM versions released by JXD (.05, .08, .09, .14, and .16). JXD never released very good release notes on what changes were in these ROM's. This doesn't help ROM developers like me as now I and the community have to test things to find out! Lastly, JXD has not released the a source Kernel, so updates and fixes are nothing more than hackjobs.

Yes, after pounding my head against numerous walls for countless hours I've got it working!
A stable ~23 to ~25 FPS on 1080P with proper HW acceleration videos.

Video Codec:
H264 1920x1074

Audio Sound:
AC3 48000Hz @ 6 Channels (go big for go home).

Average FPS (20 minute average):
23.95

Testing HDMI output issues today, if all works a version 2.0 of my firmware will be released. It's not all kittens an puppies - there is a small (non performance related catch). I'll keep you guys posted.

Excellent news!  Incidently, on your S7800, are you getting the issues some of us are getting with HDMI out?  IE the supposed 41-42Fps limit?  Or do you think you may have solved that?

Many thanks for this have just tried it out.  Doesn't appear to make any difference to me though regarding the HDMI issues.  Im still stuck at 41FPS on any app rather than 60.  If I use retroarch its reporting back to me 41.568hz over HDMI.

EDIT:

Actually it is slightly different to last time.

Last time, with an FPS counter on (on your previous firmware), it would hover between 41 and 42 FPS.  But now it goes from around 44fps up to 52.  So the performance is higher than it was, although less stable.

Also, which I've never had before over HDMI im getting pretty bad screen tearing.  Not if i scroll the screen from right to left or left to right, but up or down (this is obviously only over HDMI, not normally).  With your past firmware I wasnt getting screen tear it was just alot slower (the 41-42fps limit)

Yes, but I have a RK3188 unit - I would guess bet money you have a RK3188-T unit.

Edit:
My patches hate these T chips as the volt tables are completely different. The fact you stated the FPS increased suggests its a hardware issue.

Hi

Just tried the new one.  Same results.  Screen tear has now gone, but its still slow over HDMI no matter what the CPU is set to.  Getting the same framerates as  before, anywhere between 44 and 52fps so in any game it results in slowdown and choppy sound unfortunately. As soon as I pull the HDMI cable out though, games shoot straight back upto 60fps.

Alright, I've got one more trick up my sleeve... See the end of this post.

Between you and I these RK3188 chips were mainly designed to be powering video to HDMI (video as in video's, movies, tv shows, etc.). The hardware may not good be enough to get 50FPS.

Thanks for the test - I'll keep the updated drivers in the public release as it did some good (resolved the tearing issues).

I'm uploading a .002 version - hopefully that will do the trick or at least provide you a somewhat better performance gain.

The does seem somewhat odd though.  Take a gameboy emulator for instance.  On the tablet alone, this will run full speed at the 500mhz setting at 60fps.  If i connect the HDMI up whilst the tablet is still set to 500 mhz then it will drop to 45 fps on the tablet, and show 45 fps on the tv.  However, if then take the S7800 all the way up to 1.6ghz, i get absolutely zero improvement.

Using HDMI uses a few extra drivers and uses separate DRM routines in the kernel (which I don't have the source for). Which means all we can do is patch around the kernel.

As an example - finding the solution to the vSync bug took about 8 hours in a hex editor (and I knew what needed to be changed). Given I don't have the kernel source, don't know what needs to be changed, and without any support from JXD, tracking down the problem is like finding a needle in a hay stack.

You can try this (.002) - it's boasted the best performance during my testing.
http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTAxMDY/

I think it best for the WebClaw v2 ROM release to focus on vSync issues and leave HDMI to the guys who have the kernel source.

Face it, JXD should be asking us dev's to work for them.

Ok, let's turn this adventure back towards the original purpose of the firmware.
Does video playback drop frames when on HDMI (eg: if you play a movie back is it smooth)?

No, the video problems as far as i noticed hadnt changed, they were still quite jumpy.  I tried a couple of 720p files with MX player over HDMI and got the same results.

On the device itself without HDMI, perfectly fine as far as I can tell.  Again, I played a video whilst on the device and it only became jumpy the moment the HDMI was plugged in, same as everything else ???

Sorry, I am confused - your saying your device with my 1.0X firmware played videos on the device without any frame loss? Further, your not noting any differences between the 1.0X and 2.0X firmware when playing videos on the device itself (without the use of HDMI)?

Sorry I wasnt clear.  On 1.02 which I was using before on the device videos played "more or less" fine to my eyes.  Not perfectly, but no where near as jumpy as it was via HDMI.  With the new firmwares ive tested today, video is the same on the device as it was on 1.02 (IE close to perfect but not quite) but still jumpy on HDMI.

Basically I've not noticed any difference on my device from 1.02 through to the 2.0 ive tested today

@kristianity77; my 1.0X firmware did not fix any vSync issues.
The fact that you did not notice any issues with 1.0X firmware makes.. we'll your feedback less than creditable (as all S7800B units had choppy / frame drop issues on X264 video playback). The fact you didn't notice this is awesome (for you), but bad new (for me). I hope that makes sense!

Thanks for your feedback regarding 2.X - I'll keep that in mind. At present I think it best we get more beta testers involved.

I didnt say I didnt notice issues,all i said was is that the video played alot better on the device than it did over HDMI.  And all ive stated about 2.0 is that again, it plays better on the device than it does over HDMI.  To be honest when it comes to video playback I possibly dont notice the issues as much as I do with other areas.

Actually it,s hit and miss.
The 78's have problems with h263 also (divx/xvid) in 360/480p
Yet I have a 1080p copy of night of the living dead in h264 that runs just about perfect.
I don't think the issue is an under powered CPU, the hardware decoder should handle most of the heavy lifting on that anyway.

As for the DRM I seen a setting in dev options to disable HDCP iirc it made no difference on or off but I'll double check tomorrow.

Kris is credable , they was the first to notice the HDMI issue.

Does WebClaw even pay attention to this thread anymore?  There's an unfortunate pattern of ROM devs abandoning threads lately.  First TanWorks, now WebClaw...  It's not so much a criticism as it is simply an unfortunate observation.

Yes, I'm still around. I'm currently working on this in my spare time.
Right now I'm working on a new patched kernel that is showing promise to resolve the video issues (frame drop). Once that's complete I'll see what comments there are and release an update to my ROM.

On another note, this thread is full of requests and only and handful of thanks / appreciation. Kinda kills my desire to release any new kernels when all people do is download / install and never comment / thank for developers hard work. As an example over 6000 people downloaded my firmware - that's a crapload of downloads.
well if i had,nt said it before, Thank You.

Yes, but I have a RK3188 unit - I would guess bet money you have a RK3188-T unit.

Edit:
My patches hate these T chips as the volt tables are completely different. The fact you stated the FPS increased suggests its a hardware issue.
ya Skelton had cautioned that in the past about the T units maybe interpret voltage values different.
How do you verify core voltage? Or is it a best guess?

BTW any problems with repacking the kernel on this?
Or are the video fixes beyond a kernel swap?

And post it for testing, in case any was wondering notld is public domain, I just don't want to upload 1.8gb on my lousy 1mbps upstream connection

ah so I can't just swap the kernel then?
I've been running a repartitioned 1.1.4 stock with your old kernel, has worked pretty well, was hoping you got vsync/HDMI fixed it would be equally as simple to get the benefit on stock.

On an HDMI related note, I've got one other idea I didn't think would work (but now seeing my device actually boots ) maybe it's worth a try.

I'll post another version here shortly (pending my device starts).

@WebClaw. First of all, I want to THANK YOU for your hard work. Been using your 1.0 firmware and it works perfectly for what I'm doing by now (reading comics & books, some PS games).
I will try 2.0 as soon as I can...but before installing I have a couple of questions:

01. Can I upload them in my Drive? Or, if you wish, I can make a folder with your email and give you read&write permissions so that you can upload them directly in my Drive.

02. What is the difference between
webclaw2.00.img: 300 Mb
webclaw2-001.img: 507 Mb
webclaw2-002.zip: 300 Mb

Thanks again!

I believe they're the bug fixes for the custom firmware, with 002 being the most recent, 003 should be the one to come next  ;D  :P

These are micro-builds - I wouldn't waste time saving / uploading them.

Here is my version / release notations:
Eg: X.ABC

Where X is a major [stable] version.
Where A is a maintenance release [stable] version.
Where B is a minor [stable] version change.
Where C is a micro [unstable] version change.

webclaw2.00.img = as noted in the description.
webclaw2.001.img = includes Google Play Patch, and updated HDMI + video drivers (resolved tearing over HDMI).
webclaw2.002.img = includes a newer Google Play Patch, and updated HDMI + video drivers + hardware render update (.002 video components of .002 will not be furthered as it broke more than it fixed).

Going forward if I don't note / mention anything please assume it's not addressed (saves me having to reply). If you want to make a suggestion, that's something different.

Despite the scrag85's attitude, it would be good to add a path so you can choose to have the external SD as internal memory if preferred. By the other way, any news about a new firmware from JXD? Skelton said it.

Hello,

I'm new with this, i tried the previous version of the custom ROM and i love it. Curious about the new v2.0
I don't use hdmi output, don't have the stuff to test it. But i've played a bit with the vold.fstab and if i'm not wrong the only thing you have to do is

## Vold Generic fstab
##

#######################
## Regular device mount
##
## Format: dev_mount <label> <mount_point> <part> <sysfs_path1...>
## label        - Label for the volume
## mount_point  - Where the volume will be mounted
## part         - Partition # (1 based), or 'auto' for first usable partition.
## <sysfs_path> - List of sysfs paths to source devices
######################

## Example of a standard sdcard mount for the emulator / Dream
# Mounts the first usable partition of the specified device
#dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.2/mmc_host/mmc1
#dev_mount flash /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/virtual/mtd/mtd9/mtdblock9

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/external_sd auto /devices/virtual/mtd/mtd9/mtdblock9
dev_mount flash /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/rk29_sdmmc.0/mmc_host/mmc0
dev_mount udisk /mnt/usb_storage auto /devices/platform/usb20_host/usb /devices/platform/usb20_otg/usb

2.003 is up.

- Further tweaked Google Play Store compatibility.

I  have Tan's FW installed. Can this just be installed right over it? What happens to the 1GB extra partition that came from that firmware? Or does the partitions stay the way they are? Sorry if answered before.

Tan's and my ROM are not compatible - you cannot upgrade (you have to switch). Installation instructions can be found in my initial post. I don't understand what you mean by the extra 1GB of space - are you referring to the partition sizes? If so, my ROM also provides an extra 1GB of installation (userdata) space.

Sorry, I don't have a lot of experience with upgrading Android FW, but I did install Tan's. I just meant that since I have his on my system currently, do I just follow through with your instructions (which I saw and are similar to Tan's) or would I have to go to stock JXD provided firmware AND THEN install your firmware?

Yes, that extra 1GB was what I was referring to.

Webclaw, you can take the modules and libs from my GPD firmwares if you want to see if that hdmi issue is solved. (perhaps you already tried that, not sure) GPD devices have no problem with hdmi at all, so even if replacing libs and modules is not working, my guess is that is something wrong with gralloc or hwcomposer in 7800, or problem with framebuffer in kernel. (just a guess).

Thanks, I tried that. As well as every other known ROM I could think of. I do appreciate the offer though. I've come to the conclusion that something is tied to the kernel (frame buffer - I agree) that is not patchable and has a dependency on external library. Pretty sure this is not going to be a fixable issue as it stands. Perhaps with the new firmware that the manufacturer will release fixes the problem.

I've tryed the v 2.01 version and overall it looks like it's a bit sluggish. I installed antutu directly after installing firmware and the results sre now lower then with the 2.0 version. Also when i've installed an emulator like sfc it hangs frequently. With the v2 firmware i do not have this.

Strange phenomene

In your comment, you described swap sdcard, does that mean that your external sdcard would be your nand card?
if so, must i do something to activate it ?

It would appear T series device score a wee bit lower. After 3 tests I still get around 20100 That said, the bugs are squashed so it's an acceptable trade-off (~400 points) and still faster than any other non-OC ROM.

Yes, the SDCard is swapped (TF / SD Micro) will appear as internal. Nothing needs to be done to activate - see "storage".

Sorry bud, my bad - typo is causing that (SD swap). I'll fix it right away and re-upload.

Your numbering or sorting is a little strange.  Is 2-012 newer than 2-0131?  It's listed higher on your post, but has a lower "version number", just want to make sure before I download and find out I got the wrong version.

Also, do all the updates stack?  One lists SD swap, another lists updated MALI drivers... so does the newest version have both of those things?

Post by: WebClaw on March 10, 2014, 12:04:56 am

Here is my version / release notations:
Eg: X-ABCD

Where X is a major [stable] version.
Where A is a maintenance release [stable] version.
Where B is a minor [stable] version change.
Where C is a fix [stable] version change.
Where D is a micro [unstable] version change.

Features of the specific release are above the download / file link. As an example webclaw2-0131.img: would have all of those things you mentioned.

So if I want the working SD swap I should download 2-0131?

Yup. For reference sake - all the v2.X ROM's have all the same fixes in the them.
I just created different versions of the same ROM with a unique feature-set to appease the masses / thread poll.

Hello webclaw, just want to say that I can't download your ROM over tabled when I push on download link nothing happens, should be nice if someone could upload a mirror link.. It I must fix my laptop and download over laptop. It's not problem for me just thought it is good to know that your upload service doesn't support android or what.... By the way' everything looks perfect here, but could u make some overcloked kernels ??? Or I can flash from supercharged ? Should be nice to have overcloked GPU and ram , it u already did that ???? I see no description about that. Than u for ur hard work.

The CPU is already running at 1.6GHz.
GPU is 600MHz (well actually 598MHz)
RAM is not overclocked as slows down the GPU.

ROM need to be installed by RK Batch Tool - not sure why you would want to use your tablet to download?

I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent ROM.

I installed it last night and have been using it quite extensively. My favorite thing about this ROM has to be the STABILITY! Absolutely rock solid, runs great. It's just a nice, clean android build.

I've tested PPSSPP and GT Racing 2 with excellent performance.

After the testing i did for you Webclaw i rolled back to your 1.02 for the time being as that played totally fine with me  ;D.   Would you say the update to version 2 (not forgetting that I dont really play videos on the device) is worth it?  Do you get quite a bit more performance?

You get about ~200 more points in a benchmark. That said, the battery life performance is much better due to the CPU spikes now being gone.

Firmware stability rely mostly in kernel. And I suppose most people having unstabilties are just because they use OC, which is just the opposed to stabilty. And if their units are a T unit (like most units), overclocking to more than 1,6 is absurd, and only have negative effects. (In my GPD roms i only include 1,6 ghz kernels max, because of the same reason, T unit with more than 1,6 is nonsense). I am sure webclaw agrees with that.

By the way, JXD sent me this link with a supposedly new firmware. No idea what's inside and no idea why they send me this stuff. The only thing I want from them is a tarball with the kernel source, and not a firm for a device I don't have, so they can go to hell xD.

Anyway, here is the link they sent me. No idea how this firmware is or whatever. I suppose it's beta. At least I hope they have fixed some of the previous stuff (though this firm is made by a different people/company, so who knows.)

Well, isn't it nice to feel needed skelton ;-) I am going to recreate this post (to your credit) as a new thread.
This bombshell is a thread highjack waiting to happen ;-).

I completely agree, this rush for anything more than 1.6GHz is silly. Applications don't use the power! Further the battery life is terrible with anything over 1.6GHz which makes the hole point of a handheld portable go out the door.

The firmware appears to be a 1.5GHz release - the kernel has a different MD5.

Here are the changes everyone:

No HDMI, vSync or other fixes! What hell JXD, do you even listen to your customers?

1, the new UI interface

2, SD auto mount function (open method: Set the "Storage> Select External SD Card inserted TF card, check this option and re-machine, the machine will recognize TF card SDCARD directory, all the big game data Andrews package can be put TF card. course, Games and xiaoji directories have to be copied to TF card, or can not read the local Chick Game Center games)

3, hidden at the bottom of the status bar, press the HOME key to call up the multi-task switching

4, the new button mapping design

5, users can get remote key mapping download data: The remote server has been configured to automatically download map data sdcard0> gamedata> server.xml)

6, users can get their own key mapping configuration data: sdcard0> gamedata> local.xml (Note: local.xml can not be directly applied, reference may download data through a simple server.xml finishing: the local.xml Lane <game> .. Copy </ game> data to server.xml, you can share it with other people, or the Brush Kaoru server.xml, restart the machine before you can configure it to restore individual mapping data)

7, optimize compatibility: Before you can run the "Wild Blood" and other games can be normal operation

8, part of the failure to solve the case of touch during use appear.

9, the frequency of high-frequency 1.56GHZ brush package, 1.4GHZ frequency brush pack, CPU frequency back and forth to refresh, to change to change (meaning tools and tutorials)

Oy... I'm in brick land today.  Figured I'd try to switch to Webclaw's latest, and now all I've got is a black screen, and a failure to download the IDB.  I've got the drivers installed, it shows up in my device manager as "Class for rockusb devices -> Rockusb Device" so I figure that's better than "Unknown device."  Then I start the RKBatchTool (v1.7), I have the green light, I choose webclaw2-0131.img and hit Restore.  The light starts glowing yellow, and it succeeds at everything (including the lowerformat) until it gets to "Download IDB" which fails every time.  Wait for it to complete, exit the tool, and holding down the Power button or hitting the Reset pin does nothing.

Any help?  :(  Thanks very much guys.  Swore I wasn't going to do this...

*sigh*  Different port, different computer, different wire... I think I even pointed north instead of south, and hopped on my left foot instead of my right.  I can't believe how GD finicky this thing is, it's ridiculous.

Here's what I ended up doing.  I got the tablet into some weird state where I absolutely had to hold the power button down for the device to stay connected.  I ran the RK Batch Tool, and I would only get a blue square, but I went ahead and flashed back to Tan's firmware image, for nothing more than to get CWM on it.  I had to hold the power button in the entire time, but it finally worked.  The device rebooted into CWM.  From there, I chose Factory Restore and wiped all the data.  Once that was complete, I let the tablet reboot, plugged it back in, and used RK Batch Tool to flash your latest.

That completed.  Then it went through the recovery stuff, formatted data, cache, and mnt/sdcard.  Now all it's doing is playing the "GamePad 3 Android 4.2.2" loop animation over and over again, and it's been like 5 minutes...

I reset the device, and powered it on while holding Volume Up.  That lead to the little dead Android with the red exclamation point.  I tried it again holding Volumen Down, that just went back to the boot animation.

EDIT: Nevemind, reflashed, and this time it worked.  *sigh*  I hate this thing as much as I love it.  I wish ASUS would just  release their gamepad already, I'm tired of putting up with second rate Chinese garbage.

@WebClaw: Bravo sir.  After the (presumably self-caused) headaches of trying to get this ROM on to my device, I have to say this is outstanding.  I went with SuperCharged right out of the box, but got so frustrated with the frequent hesitations upon waking the device that I finally sought to try your ROM out, and I have to say, I'm very satisfied with it.  The responsiveness, the lightweight installation, and the battery life are all exceptional.  Thanks for your efforts, and breathing some extra life into an otherwise JXD disaster.

Wow, I am on board for an Asus handheld. Had a lot of Asus components. Had a life disaster and lost my main computer so I've been using this Asus netbook for a year and a half. It's gotten a LOT of use (taken with me everywhere, etc) and still going strong. I remember a while ago I bought an HP laptop and barely used or moved it. Not even a year and the wireless dies, then I think the hard drive dies.

Asus makes good stuff. In my opinion at least.

Hi Webclaws

I have recently installed your latest 2.013 firmware and just wanted to advise on a little issue I was having.  I reinstalled the firmware twice to see if it was a one off but the issue still remains and I cannot see whats causing it.

Basically, using any emulator (such as EPSXE or SNES9Xex) I seem to get a problem which is uniform across all of them.  If i run a game everything will be perfect for about 10-15 minutes, but then games will begin to slow down and stutter to the point of being unplayable.  I then have to save the games, quit out of the app and go back in again where I can then get another 15 minutes or so before the same thing happens.

I dont think its overheating as its not especially hot to the touch.  I just put back your original 1.02 I believe it was to test and ive had an hour or so without hiccups on the same apps.  Any idea what the issue could be? :)

I've just tested on a second S7800 and getting the same issue so something is slightly amiss.  It Doesn't matter what I change using SetCPU.  Its an odd one for sure.  On emulators the video begins to stutter and drop frames but the sound remains totally perfect throughout. 

EDIT:

In addition to this I installed a Frames Per Second counter, and when emus start to slow down and stutter, the FPS value never leaves 60 for the emulator (top left), but the FPS being displayed on the screen is all over the place (top right).  I have tried to catch a video of it and youtube link is below if you want to check it out.  I think I shall roll back to 1.02 (but I know now I will miss the SD card swap! ARgghh!!) lol

So every current user should update, correct?  Is it possible to provide the correct hwcomposer as a patch instead?  Just curious.

WebClaw, I don't know if you have time to look into this, and I have no idea if it's a problem with the ROM or with the device itself, but Street Fighter IV HD crashes.  It crashes for me right after it says "Tap screen to start" and before it gets into any of the menus.  If you have an opportunity to look into that, I'd be very grateful, but if not no worries.  SF3 works just fine in aFBA :D

Update: This was my error, I put the data folder in the wrong place.  Game plays fine (or at least, as fine as SF IV HD plays, which is not too great... technologically, it's more like Killer Instinct than 3D Stree Fighter...)

Installation:
1. Download Rockchip Batch Tool 1.7: http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_OTM0OA/
2. Connect your S7800B to your computer via USB 2.0 (avoid USB 3.0 ports).
3. Power up your device and run the file RKBatchTool.exe (requires administrator) on your computer.
4. You'll note the tool shows a pink color indicating the status (device is connected).
5. Click the "Switch" button and your device will reboot. Install drivers via Device Manager.
6. Press the "Reset" button your device, wait for it to boot up.
7. Again, click the "Switch" button, this time the area above will turn green - programming mode ready (if it doesn't you didn't install the driver).
8. Select the desired flash image file (.img) and press "Restore".

I am having trouble installing WebCrawl2-2012 the device drivers, step 5. After hitting the reset button and waiting for my S7800 to boot up my computer starts searching for the drivers on the internet and never finds them. I thought I was suppose to install them manual via the Drivers folder which came with the RockChip utility program.

Can someone please clear up for me how to execute step 5 correctly? Am I suppose to manually install them or is Windows suppose to automatically install them, and what do you do if that goes wrong?

Thanks!!

You are supposed to install them manually.  Let the Windows Update search fail.  Then go to your Device Manager, right click on the "Unknown device", choose to select the drivers manually from your harddrive, and navigate to the folder where the correct drivers are located for your OS (Vista, 7, 8) and install (x86 for 32 bit, x64 for 64 bit).

actually you do not even need to go thru the windows driver search BS, there is a option to select the driver manually right from the get go, don't have abox up handy to walk you thru it but just look around when it pops up don't just go click happy on next, it's easier then hunting it down in device manager later.

@WebClaw: I found another very unusual incompatible app.  All of the .emus work great with the single exception of NGP.emu, which will only display a blank screen when running any game.  I tried a couple of different versions of it, always got the same thing.  Could this be ROM related?  Seems unusual, like I said, all the rest work fine.

Update: This was my problem, faulty transfer of ROMs to my SD card.  Erased and retransfered, and everything is fine.

@Joe: Under Windows 7, at least, I could not find that option.  I could select "skip Windows Search" and let it bomb out prematurely, but that often had the unintended consequence of the device not showing up at all in the device manager, so I would always let it time out.

NGP.emu works fine for me.  Are you using the paid app from the store?  If so, make sure you do not have the OpenGL2 image improvement setting on, this does not work on S7800s currently (across the entire .emu series)

If you are using the free NGP.emu (which someone has ripped off the original emulator) then this release is 6 months older than the official NGP.emu, so its possible its not compatible.

Working great so far webclaw. I only ran into this problem: apps keep installing into the 2gb partition (which is now full) and unless i manually move them i wont have space for more. I have a 64gb sd which is supposed to be internal memory. Is there a way to force all instalations into the larger "internal storage" aka my sdcard?

Have you installed the correct version for the SD swap?  I have used it and it works perfectly fine.  sometimes apps will install just to the 2GB partition and you have to go into the settings and manually move it over to the SD card but you shouldnt have problems.  If you have, I suggest installing it again.

Just installed this, gonna test in a few minutes with AnTuTu.

Just one question (maybe I didn't understand the previous posts...I'm Italian sorry). You were talking about memory swap. After installation with NO SD card inserted, I have:

SETTINGS - STORAGE:

Internal space Total Space 1.97 Gb
NAND space Total Space 0.00b
SD Card Total Space 4.38 Gb

So. When I download an app, where will it be installed? Is there the chance to install it in the SD Card I'm gonna insert in the tablet? Sorry people but I'm quite confused about that...

EDIT:
AnTuTu shows 19546

Not used this FW, But I think Webclaw left the stock launcher in place.
This is a common problem with stock and not attributed to webclaw.

I suggest you get a replacement launcher.

I use Nova, It has a free/paid version, the Free version is quite good.
I've not had it loose any widgets or icons.

If I went from Webclaw 1.02 to the 2.013 and then found I had performance issues on 2.013 (detailed a couple of pages back).  If i then just flash 1.02 back over instead then the issues should be gone shouldnt they? Nothing would "remain" from 2.013?  Its just that Im getting issues now on 1.02 that I never had until I went to 2.013 and back again.  Very frustrating and dont know what to do to solve it.

restore is recommended because it wipes the flash before putting on the new firmware.. then you're sure nothing is left over.

Looking forward to an patches you release. Again thank you for making these devices a much more enjoyable experience.  :)

Why is it better? On the the description you provide, it seems that 116-1 has not 2GB nand, not Play Store fixes, not updated video drivers and not SD card swap. Not only that, but it seems that it mantains all the unuseful stock applications...

So, why is it better???

So you do have a patch?,the vsync issues you speak of is it from the HDMI output or on the unit itself because I never noticed any vsync issues before on stock firmware,I must not have payed attention to the problem since I was just tinkering around when I got my s7800b,my video playback was fine as well but I only tested you tube.I like your ROM a lot  since it cleared all the bloat and added memory swap,and the 2gigs.is the higher clock speed the problem with the emulators?,if you can help me it's greatly appreciated the crashing of the emu's is getting to me I can do without the HDMI output if that's where it stems from,well keep up the great work  and thank you for putting in time so that ppl like me can enjoy our tech toys more

Hi , I tried ver 2-0131 and it ran just fine on my dec 1.4 unit but i noticed the emus ran *much* choppier on the built in screen going from 1.02.

havnt tried HDMI as i went back to 1.02 , is it possible to increase the main partition from 2gb rather than swap with external SD ???

At least with 1.02 the unit is at least usable , many thanks webclaw

A fixed version 2.02 is up (addresses the previously mentioned emulation crashing / slow / choppy performance issues). Sorry it took so long guys, was looking at JXD Stock version 1.1.5 evaluating it to see if it's worth creating a custom ROM (so far the answer is no).

For those who just want a fix; replace this file hwcomposer.rk30board.so  (http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTAzNzM/) with the one located in /system/lib/hw

Any hope for a KitKat version of your ROM? I'm aware it's quite a bit more work than just using patchomatic, but you seem fine with it - and integrating your fixes with the new Android, plus it being a clean ROM would make it the ultimate S7800B firmware.
I think that skelton even created a KitKat firmware for the GPD G5A, so maybe he can help with the transition? I know I'm just grasping at straws here, but I thought it is worth a try.

For version 2-X Versions:
2-02 is the latest.
2-0131 is the 2nd latest.

Not too sure where the confusion is on this. 2-02 has the jitter emulation fix, 2-0131 does not.

To answer your question though, here is a 2-02 version without the SD / NAND swap function:

webclaw thank you very much.

The ver numbering made perfect sense to me but it seems Kingzak34 didnt read , understand , or both..... my original statement.

downloading now

@shadowgauge - SD / Nand swap caused me a problem because i keep my most used apks on my SD , some have hefty OBB files so i have to either have them in /android/data/whatever or keep a second copy in a seperate directory and my 32gb SD is almost full , if i keep the one copy in /android/data/whatever and i uninstall the game i lose the OBB data , well that appears to have happened when i was testing 2-0131.....

Yes, but they need to be forcefully FAT32 formatted (unless your using an exFax mod).

To confirm; what does it indicate in storage? Properly allocated (as it should be)?

internal storage: total 1.97gb  avail 1.1gb

nand flash : 58.88gb avail. 19.7gb

sd card: 4.38gb avail. 4.38gb

I use a class 10 Sony 64g and before flashing webclaws  ROM the 7800 formated it for me but now I have an extra 64g card and the 7800 won't format it probably because of the SD swap,I also have the problem with running out of space when I download from the market,I thought the games would install on the 64g,that's not the case,hoping it gets figured out ty so for now I just play a game beat it then delete it.on asphalt airborne I couldn't DL the update cause of no space ....

Did you not have access to the 4.38gb when connected via PC?  I'm pretty sure I couldnt use the 4.38 either, but all I did was fill that space up with ROMS anyway via PC so didnt think anything of it.

Right, I'm now going to replace my stock firmware with Web's.  Need some quick advice though:
Can I install 2.0 directly or do I need earlier versions?
Do I keep my sd card removed at all times or does it not matter?

Actually, one more question! ::)
In the instructions from Webclaw, what does he mean in step 5, after switch and reboot "install drivers via device manager"??
Don't quite understand this - sorry, all new to me!

He means to install the drivers on your PC the drivers for the 7800  in order to flash your unit u have to install the provided drivers for your PC's operating system

Again. THANKS WebClaw for your efforts...if you contact me and have a paypal account, I'll offer you a beer ("I know it's not much but it's the best I can do" - Elton John).
Now a couple of questions.
I use my JXD just to read eBooks, comics, and when I have time I will emulate something. I don't use HDMI so I'm not gonna link it to a TV. Sometimes at work I watch xvids, or movies...but it happens veeeeery rarely. What ROM should I use?
I'm using webclaw2-0131.img.
Why did you put
CPU @ 1.6GHz 2GB NAND Storage VS CPU @ 1.4GHz 4GB NAND Storage...I'm getting confused  :o

There is no difference besides the 1.4GHz kernel getting more battery life.
Some users (like me) use their devices on flights... Battery life is about 2 hours less at 1.6GHz (assuming you don't forcefully govern it).

No need for a donation, thanks anyway.

Can someone explain the difference between the nand swapped one and the one without? I assume it means with the nand swap your whole system is on the EXTERNAL card (mine would be a 64gb) but it is listed as INTERNAL? And so the memory that came with the unit would be considered EXTERNAL? What are the advantages? Also, I have a 64gb card filled with stuff already, so do I need to leave it inserted while doing this or take it out, I assume take it out lol but I am not sure and I do not want to risk messing anything up. Thanks, and I know these are dumb questions!

You are correct.
Leaving it in is fine, it will NOT delete the contents of the SD card.

As for the advantages - I would suggest browsing the forum; lots of applications will not use the external SD card (eg: Music, Video, etc.).

You can just flash the kernel if you want, or use SetCPU to never pass 1.4GHz.

An undocumented feature in the 1.4GHz versions is the right analog stick does work. The 1.6GHz "kinda" do - but it's not practical to use.

So your saying if I flash the 1.4  kernel it fixes the right analog accuracy but what other changes will happen from the 1.6 and If i use set CPU and under clock the kernel will I get the same results with the right analog also witch firmware do I get the 1.4 kernel from ty  :)

The 1.4GHz has better RIGHT analog stick.
The 1.6GHz kernel is faster but poor right analog sick sensitivity.

Uploading bud - links to the old versions were removed on purpose. Give me 10 to finish uploading.

As a note, I'm not going t update the 1.X versions any longer (waiting for KitKat to become polished) - so this last 1.XX release. I spent a great deal of my day testing, updating, tweaking, and benchmarking.

Lastly, my descriptions are accurate. If they don't mention a fix it's because it either didn't work (for all users) or created other problems (as an example stuttering emulation).

I can say one thing, this last ROM is the bomb ;-)

Downloads ready.

I would strongly recommend the 1.4GHz versions and here is why:

Aside from the already discussed right analog stick issue. Emulators will never use the power of a 1.6GHz CPU, they need a strong GPU - besides the extra 200MHz makes very little difference in any emulator (PSP and PSX included).

The GPU governor on this device (Mali 400) takes a VERY long time to get up to speed (meaning it takes it a long time to change to the next frequency).

The new GPU MHz frequencies used in this ROM are:
133,200,266,300,400,600

This means when playing a GPU intensive game the GPU will already be running faster, which means there is less "pausing, slow-down, skipping" issues when the GPU speeds up to the next frequency.

Secondly by default the STOCK JXD Rom's have the Mali OC'd to 600MHz, however they limit the max frequency of the Mali to 400MHz in boot.img. All one has to do is change this value in boot.img and your GPU is running faster (no kernel patching needed). I think SixPack Joe found this out (kernel reporting 598MHz).

Lastly, the RAM needs to be timed to the GPU (exactly). Running a GPU at 600MHz and and the DDR memory at 4XXMHz (stock) will mean the buffer timings are not synced correctly (again causing a stuttering / jitter effect).

My ROM addresses all the above issues.

In conclusion if you want a AnTuTu benchmark that's crazy this ROM is not for you. If you want a smooth and stable playing experience this ROM will kick the pants off of anything else. Benchmarks are NOT everything and lots of people think fast MHz is better when that's simply not the case.

On another note, finding a balance that allow my ROM to work on both T devices and older devices is a pain in the ass. I suspect JXD will now focus on KitKat and leave 4.2.2 versions in the dust. So as stated before this will be my last version 2.X / 1.X ROM.

Yes. The right analog stick difference is marginal (which is why it is a gray area) - don't let this be a deciding factor for you.

Typically with a 32GB SD card person would see more advantage using the 4GB NAND + SD / NAND Swap Versions.
The idea here is the 32GB SD Card would become internal storage. The benefit is some applications will not look at external SD cards for data. Further if you ever change ROM's your save games will be on the SD card meaning you won't loose them if you ever change ROM's.

Yeah I saw the HDMI issues with the Riley Rom 1.2 version of kit kat.  But more worryingly on that the actual on screen refresh rate is now set to 66hz on that as opposed to 60hz.

Well, this ROM does keep the GUI launcher components from KitKat. That said, I would disagree, the GUI may have been smoother in KitKat, but was terrible in emulation which is the purpose of the device. I'm floored by how stupid JXD is sometimes.

Tying it now and its nice and quick.  Still seems to be a slight issue with the compatibility in the marketplace though although not sure why.  I have on S7800 running on the latest Webclaw and one running on Tans and there are quite a few apps showing as compatible on Tans but not on Webclaws.  IE

Angry Birds Go (Missus loves it  ;) )
Rayman Jungle Run
Candy Crush Saga (missus again!!)
Angry Birds Space

These all show up as working on Tans but not on Webclaws.  I'll add more to the list as I go to install them.

It could be the faked model Tan used in build.prop.
I use a IG-9100 Samsung unit, not too sure what Tan used.

Well, this ROM does keep the GUI launcher components from KitKat. That said, I would disagree, the GUI may have been smoother in KitKat, but was terrible in emulation which is the purpose of the device. I'm floored by how stupid JXD is sometimes.

Thanks, you made cool firmware.
Can you describe what is really bad in new kitkat kernel?

Main issues:
- Emulators run at 66Hz instead of 60Hz.
- HDMI output is still not at 60FPS.
- vSync issues are present, playing x264 video in choppy (Sam's fix is not present).

I should note that the same chipset is in the GPD G7 and their firmware has none of these issues.

GPD g7 and g5a benefit that come from a company that listen and apply fixes, and that I can compile a kernel from scratch. If JXD would do the same thing would be a different story, but they won't do.

I wouldn't expect too much from JXd new team of developers. From what I have seen, they are just kangers.

The 66 hz thing sounds like a joke honestly. It ruins all emulator purposes.

I'm so close to ditching this JXD PoS and going to the G7 - just wondering if the newer RK processor (Mali 700 GPU) will be out soon so I get the newer unit. I agree with the 66Hz; to push that crap out in a beta ROM shows that JXD ROM developers have no clue of what they're doing.

Probably better to wait webclaw, RK32XX should be available by summer, and there should be a significant improvement over the 3188-T of the g7.

Dear WebClaw, you offer a 4GB version and a 4GB + card swap. Since there is only one link for the 2 GB version, has it cards swap or not? I would like it!

Also, I ask everybody why to have the 4 GB version. Is it not 2 GB far enough for any app on the Play Store?

__________________

Now, another question. WebClaw, since you insist to use the 1.4 Ghz version, but both version have the same fixes, I ask myself a simple question: is it not better to use the 1.6 Ghz and install SetCPU to low the maximum speed to 1.4 Ghz? By this way, do you not drain extra battery, but, if need more speed for a game on the Play Store, you can release the top speed to full 1.6 Ghz. Correct?

Had a chance now to test this a bit more.  Unfortunately, it still seems to have issues with emulators (at least on the -T devices anyway which is what I have.  Still getting the stutters on emus such as Snes9xEx and EPSXE (not tried any others yet) but that stuttering is not there on Tans. Ill try to catch another video of it later on.

116, havent tried 114 yet.  Will it make a difference?  As surely clocking down to 1.4 (which ive tried) is more or less the same thing is it not?

EDIT:

This is what is happening anyway.  I noticed stutters in emualtors about once every 4-5 seconds.  I installed the FPS meter off the store and ran it.  Sure enough the FPS on the emu is running flat out 60/60, but the FPS meter is about once every 5 seconds, dropping to 55 or 56,wheres the hiccups are,  then back up to 59/60/61 (Tans goes between 59-61 at all times

Here is a video I caught, luckily (or unluckily!) with the hiccup happening slightly more than normal.

Secondly by default the STOCK JXD Rom's have the Mali OC'd to 600MHz, however they limit the max frequency of the Mali to 400MHz in boot.img. All one has to do is change this value in boot.img and your GPU is running faster (no kernel patching needed). I think SixPack Joe found this out (kernel reporting 598MHz).
I have'nt tried your new firmware, Im using your first kernel.
When I tried adjusting the mali speed by flashing a modified boot.img I found out a few things.

1. I just got black screen if I tried to add new freq's.. I think there is like 6 total.. only way I got it to boot was if I just modified the entries and left it at 6.

2. The freq's seem to be ignored, if you do a Dmesg after boot the mali freq's do not match the entires, this is both on 'stock' and with modified entries, and not just when you try to OC but also under clock.

The freq's seem to differ between the 1st batch models (1.6ghz) and the newer "T" unit models (1.4ghz)
when running the same firemware.

So near as I can tell the declared freq's are totally ignored and I didn't see a way to force the GPU.

This maybe have changed in your new firmware, especially since you have updated the mali driver.

I've also not found any app that can read (let alone set) the GPU freq's, every one of them I've tried has failed.

Dead trigger 2 show's as incompatible not sure what if anything webclaw has done to build prop.. things have been moving to quickly on firmwares for me to keep track (waiting on things to pan out)

however it did show up as compatible for me a few months back and I had it installed.. I never got past the 1st level because the control mapping did not work for the right stick.

I refuse to use touch screen.

This maybe fixed in webclaws tweak of it, and I hear it's range is fixed in teh kit-kat roms running around.
although band aid solution for those running older roms is tin cores mapper which can "recalibrate" the stick...

However analog output is a premium feature so.. not free.

With that said I had read that DT2 is still single player.. so I uninstalled it.. If I just wanna kill zombies by my self I can load up DT1 going solo get's old fast.

The drivers in the kernel have to be used for the frequencies to be accepted. If the (out of kernel) modules are used it will disregard the frequencies. You have to set the frequencies in init.d (kernel) to get things working other yes it's completely disregarded and the module based drivers (466MHz) are used (hardware trigger).

Well im not sure the correct values then.. I know even with stock firmware it does not follow the freq set when initializing.

So out of the box "stock" the freq's specified are wrong.

what's more there seems to be a difference between the regular and the "T" units using the same firmware / kernel.

Hi webclaw

Problems I'm having is with EPSXE.  Take your pick of game but I get stutters with Castlevania Symphony of the Night, Alundra, Einhander, Klonoa, Rayman etc.  Basically any game which runs at 60fps is where you can notice the stutter.  The vast majority of PS1 games obviously run at 30fps or lower.  With these games you cant notice the stutter as they are not that smooth to begin with.

SNES9xEX, more or less any title.  But ones I've tried are Super Mario Kart, Super Mario All Stars, Zelda, Equinox, Metroid 3. 

60FPS android games are also affected.  Try Rayman Jungle Run and Jetpack Joyride to see the stutters.

What it normally is is just a missed frame every 5 seconds or so it appears jumpy (you can see it jump on my video on the previous page, the frame rate drops to 56 and you can see the jump 11 seconds in)  but on occasion the framerate can drop from 60 to around 45-50fps and stay there until you quit the emulator and go back in again to get it back to 60 again.

Yes, that is with the 116 version of Weblcaws firmware.  But this issue (for me anyway) has been in all of the firmwares apart from 1.02.  In fact, the only firmwares this doesn't happen on is 1.02 and Tans.

Well I'll to the 1.02 kernel inside this ROM.
That's a quick fix.

EDIT: Done, uploading now.
Removed references to 114.

To answer the question, 116 uses more power to get to 1.4GHz than the 114 version does (different volt table). Hence why setting SetCPU will NOT give you maximum battery life.

Given the 114 versions cause this stuttering effect there's no longer a point having them around.

stuttering could also be a governer problem.
if you have your threshold to high what happens is it will kick down to a lower speed but then when demand rises (which will happen pretty often) it will have to kick back up.

What you end up with is little lag's where it's shifting up and down on the scale.

on the other hand if you have your threshold to low you'll end up running at a higher speed then you need to optimum battery life..

Personally I use on demand, performance bias, always go for performance bias or it will have trouble reaching max cpu speed even when you really need it.

With a threshold of 85, I've found that this provides a good blend of fast scaling and battery life with minimal or no stutter in most games.


That is assuming it's a governor problem.


BTW Webclaw it's great to see you so active working on your firmware but you make my head hurt the changes happen so fast, You should at least keep a history log so it's easier to see the firmwares evolution rather then wipe older stuff out completely like it never happen..

I did think that it could be a problem with that but just to make sure I was setting the Min CPU and Max CPU to 1.6 and putting the governor on Performance which to my knowledge (albeit limited) would be about the best way to alleviate any problems in that area.

@kris that's right, if you had it on performance then it would be running at top speed and there wouldn't be any governor related stuttering.

I mentioned this because I know I had issues with stuttering before I started setting my own governor settings.

As far back as v1.08 stock.
The default governor was "interactive" and it sucked balls, and never let the CPU actually reach top speed even when it was needed.

So my GPU overclock will be up to 466 Mhz. BUT, if the RAM will be overclocked up to 600 Mhz, will this be a problem? I say this since WebClaw said that GPU and RAM clock must be matched...

RAM will not OC unless the GPU is OC'd. JXD put a routine called DDR CPU Sync fix in their ROM's to ensure the timing is the same. This routine breaks if someone doesn't patch the ROM right. You can see this via dmesg (line 32).

So I can install this 116-4 rom as the definitive one, right? Excuse me for being so insistent, but I do not like to install and reinstall custom firmwares over and over: now, my s7800 is inside a drawer waiting for the definitive rom to be installed!

Also, I am a little bit lost at this point... What is the difference between the reused 102 kernel and the removed one?

I understand that 102 kernel runs at 1.6 Ghz, so the 114 version that WebClaw recommended has been deleted from the list. Ok, but what more? I mean, what is the difference between the previous 116-3 with removed kernel and the last 116-4 with 102 kernel? Did the removed kernel overclock the GPU/RAM up to 600 Mhz ALSO on T devices, causing the emulation issues? Is that the only difference, or thera are more?

So, if I understand well, this last 116-4 version with 102 kernel has all the fixes and simply do not overclock the GPU over 466 Mhz on T devices to avoid emulation problems. Correct me if I am wrong please O_OU

Removed 114 as this confused some users (instead they wanted to use 116 and govern down to 114).
As previously stated 114 uses a different volt table than 116. This caused confusion, so it was easier for me to just provide you guys a single kernel.

116-3 has the base 1.02 kernel found in WebClaw 1.02 (the one everyone said was the best) w/potential for OC'd with GPU Mali 600Mhz, DDR 600, CPU 1.6GHz (prevous 1.02 did not include DDR OC). If T device is used then Mali and DDR = 466 and 428 respectively with 1.6GHz CPU (as per notes on the first post).

Hard locked as in frozen or locked CPU speed?
Try again to confirm. That is not possible. Works without issue on both T and non-T chips (I have both).

Did you restore to upgrade - upgrade can cause freeze as the parameter file changes the location of userdata offset.

Ok, thanks for the clarifications! But 466 Mhz for GPU and 428 Mhz for DDR on T devices are not exactly the same speed... Will this difference in speed result in some lack of performance?

Post by: WebClaw on March 25, 2014, 08:53:25 pm
Ask JXD, they came up with those default speed variables, not I.

As far as I can tell DDR will not be the same as GPU as in any T device - this is an issue with the kernel that cannot be altered without the source.

For now the best kernel for T users is the 1.02 with runs at:
1.6GHz CPU
466MHz GPU
428MHz RAM

If you have a non T device, your JXD will automatically run at:
1.6GHz CPU
594MHz GPU
600MHz RAM

Nothing else can be done at this point.

You guys might wanna look into using clockwork mod recovery.
You can do a complete backup of your system/app's.

I tried using titanium backup and not only is it a pita (free version) but it also did not restore some apps correctly.

with CWM you can restore it exactly.. I even cloned my T unit to my October (Non T) unit.
Hell of a lot better then titanium.



Hey webclaw what's the hash on your 1.02 kernel? I think that's the one I've been running for about 2 months now.. it's worked fine on my T unit.

In fact better then fine, I was having trouble with the touch screen getting "stuck" (press some where it continues to register a touch) on stock on my T unit, Oddly it seemed to go away after I started using your kernel, Can't explain it, perhaps it was coincident but im not complaining.

I only get them every once in a great while now.. before it was constant.

Here is T series:

<4>[    4.357967] Mali: @@@@@@@Mali device driver loaded success@@@@@@@@

Anything else, for example 59XMHz is non-T series.

Well, I have finally installed the firmare and I have found one missing thing and one minor bug:

Missing thing: there is not a 2GB nand + SD swap version!

Bug: under Settings -> Storage, the data on the "NAND Flash" (internal SD, swapped or not) is reflected on the "Internal Storage" (ROM, or what you say NAND). This happens in all versions.

For example, I have more than 15 GB of data on my SD card. If I use the 4GB + SD swap firmware version, Storage section under Settings starts like this:

INTERNAL STORAGE (Total space: 4 GB)

Available: almost 4 GB
Apps: ~70 MB
Cached data: ~800 Kb
Misc.: ~15 GB ?????????????????????????????

If you push over Misc. you will see the files on the internal SD (in this case swapped), NOT the main ROM, NAND or whatever you want to call it. So they are linked or something. And, of course, all the graphic for Internal Storage appears in red color like full.

This is not a big issue, but it would be good to have it fixed.

Ok, I am shocked now.

Overall, this custom firmware works flawlessly for the moment (using 4GB NAND + SD Card swap).

BUT...

What happens with WiFi??? I am not talking about the signal strenght (not tested yet), but about the SPEED. I am downloading like I had a modem of 15 years ago, with the tablet at few inches fom the router :-(

I just went to Play Store to update some apps and speed was surprisingly low, at the point that I am sure there must be a problem with the configuration or something (it is impossible that the tablet is so bad). In addition, connection interrupts every few seconds: WiFi stays on, but download stop during 3 or 4 seconds, then continue at a very low speed during 10 second and interrupt again, and so on...

I live in Spain (EU). Please, can someone help me to configure whatever is necessary? Someone more reporting this?

My wifi is normal. However these chinese androids usually have issues with certain router securities so try wep or wpa or wpa2 or whatever you are not using now.

On a sidenote. Webclaw is there a way to flash just the kernel,  im just wondering if the noise im hearing is kernel related or it was there all along (i flashed your rom at midnight then moved my apps in bed in the quiet so i might have not noticed up till now heh)

I have the same issue with wifi, tried every setting I could I only get about 1.5MB / sec ) (about 12mbps) even when right next to the router.

The connection speed is 150mbps, although limited by it's 100mbps ethernet connection to the rest of teh network.
of course you never get rated speed.. but the connection should still be good for say a solid 70-80mbps.

I tried every setting I could on my AP which is an Asus, nothing helped.. only thing I did'nt try was switching to open (no security).. that's not an option.

wifi range is pretty poor.. yesterday I was outside in the car and probably only 40feet from teh AP (minus 1 exterior wall) and the signal was barely hanging on.

maybe the ant. is'nt connected on mine inside but it seems abotu the same on both my 78's so either both have bad ant.'s or it's something else.

I wonder if there is any better ant. that could be wired up.. or maybe a hidden setting limiting the power?
I know there is a setting in "advance" in the wifi setting screen for battery optimization, but I did'nt notice any change with or without that checked.

I should mention im using 1.1.4 stock so I don't think it's any problem with webclaws firmware.

A slightly different volt table in the upper ranges - solved some "would not wake issues".
As far as the WiFi, I don't have any big issues with my unit. I'm able to stream video 1080p (about 4GB in size) to my unit (bedroom) and my WiFi unit (N56U) is downstairs in the basement. Not sure of the throughput, but it's gotta be decent to stream that much data upstairs.

Hi WebClaw thank you again for your rom. But can you check the PlayStore? Many games don´t show like angry birds go, Dead trigger 2, fifa 14 or real racing 3. I think in olders roms they show..... Thank you

I don't think I changed anything to do with build.prop on this ROM - it should be the same since WebClaw 1-02 (emulation of a IG9100X).

Hello...I downloaded the file to check my jxd band it says it seems a real rk3188. What dose it mean? Also, serial number says 201311-8gb...is it better than rk3188-T?

See my prior post identification re: dmesg via SSH.
You do not want a "T" version - the non-T versions are faster.

ah ok, no issues there, I guess I got lucky.

BTW have you had any luck getting any scripts to run in init.d to run?
trying to get a few modules to load and It does'nt seem like it's even attempting to run my script.

also I noticed a file 00broodpartslite in there.. I looked it up looks like it's from a tweak app, I don't recall ever installing it though.. weird.

How are you attempting to load? Permitted the entry is ahead of the initial loads (rk board references) it should work fairly easily.

ya that's what I thought, My understanding was scripts in init.d would be ran towards the end of the boot process.
Code: [Select]
#!/system/bin/sh

# Set sdcard read cache
if [ -e /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read_ahead_kb ]
then
/system/xbin/echo 2048 > /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read_ahead_kb;
fi;

# load kernel modules
insmod /system/lib/modules/tun.ko
insmod /system/lib/modules/md4.ko
insmod /system/lib/modules/nls_utf8.ko
insmod /system/lib/modules/cifs.ko

Did'nt seem like it was even trying to load.
even though there is a init.d directory I did some googling and found that a lot of stock kernels do not infact support init.d

Why there was that brood file in there I dunno where that came from.. perhaps the directory was created?

anyway I went looking and it appears there are 3 files that it tries to load but don't exist.
I did not feel right trying to high jack one of these cause I was'nt sure what purpse they held.
Just because they don't exist now don't mean they won't later.
Quote
<3>[   31.595724] init: cannot find '/system/vendor/bin/pvrsrvctl', disabling 'pvrsrvctl'
<3>[   34.425676] init: cannot find '/system/etc/install-recovery.sh', disabling 'flash_recovery'
<3>[   36.466960] init: cannot find '/system/bin/bplus_helper', disabling 'bplus_helper'

I did however find away to get things running.
at the end of init.rc there appears to be some stuff about emulators..
I had remembered this before about people with legit copies of a NDS emulator having issues..
something to do with JXD copying over incompatible prefrence files for cracked copy or something (I dunno don't have a interest in NDS atm)

most of the stuff is commented out but at the end it tries to run /system/xbin/nds.sh.

So what I did was I cleared out the file and replaced it with this
Code: [Select]
#!/system/bin/sh

/system/xbin/busybox run-parts /system/etc/init.d/

This seems to work, it run my script in init.d which I named 01autoexec

Seems to work ok.
I know this is a really ugly way of doing things though.
I'll probably when I feel up to it flash a modified boot.img and get rid of that emulator junk at the end of init.rc while im at it, but for now this works.

If you know of a better way though let me know cause I know this is a messy way of doing things.


BTW prior to this I was using Ko control to load the modules and that works fine, But it happens later when user apps are autostarting.

I wanted the modules loaded earlier.

Only way to properly identify is via dmesg via SSH:

Here is T series:

<4>[    4.352453] Mali: mali freq table num : 6

<4>[    4.352546] Mali: init mali clock success
<4>[    4.357967] Mali: @@@@@@@Mali device driver loaded success@@@@@@@@

Anything else, for example 59XMHz is non-T series.

I really really haven't a clue what that means or how to do it. I downloaded that program that supposedly tells you the chip and it says I have a "real" 3188 but I understand it isn't reliable.

Is there a tutorial on the above process somewhere?

Well i again went back to 1.02 , totally smooth , charges fine etc.

Gave it 4 hours on plane today......

Not really sure the units got a problem as its only the last 2 roms that locked it up........

All in all i think JXD is pretty piss poor , same thing happened with the 7300b which i also purchased.
Im considering getting a gpd g7a as that apparently doesnt suffer like this beast does , but to be fair i got the 7800b for emulation and with 1.02 its smooth as glass , so think i will give up on movies and hdmi and just use it for emulation , but lets be clear , that only got to that state because of Webclaw , JXD just doesnt give a s@@t

Yes it's kernel errors (most likely dev mode is left open). This slows down the device (a lot). Older kernels > 1.0.9 were much worse.

As far as the Mali and kernel, yes it can be patched to have an intermediate step (see my 1-02c ROM included in Version 2.0). People said it caused stuttering so I removed it. This "bug" has been around since JXD Stock ROM 1.0.8.

The version you are running is the same as 1-02 (Kernel wise). I would think something else is amiss w/your device.

@Joe Sixpack, Dev output is on on all non 1.1.5 kernels. ACK = input (and if the stick doesn't move there is not any input). Try moving the stick and you'll see the errors become I/O values.

Yes, releasing dev output on a production ROM is ... [fill in the blank].

On another note - I believe JXD's latest kernel (313) addresses this. But that kernel is set to 66 FPS on emulators making it useless. So, we wait and see what happens...

Is it not possible to fix the frequencies without causing the stuttering? That error on the JXD frequencies table makes me almost cry... What a shit is this company by the way, and they even do no release source!

By the other way, what it means if I do not get any Mali line after using the dmesg command? Is my unit a T model or not?

Finally i installed a modded Google Play from de App "lucky patcher" forcing  google play work at 320 dpi. Now games like Fifa 14, real racing 3 both deadtriggers etc appears and install fine.

I've tried numerous hwcomposer and gralloc files - the only ones that solved the refresh issues were from SDK 2.0 but caused gitter / stuttering (4.2.2).

I've not yet tried with 4.4.X I will tonight - thanks for the tip skelton.

No go skelton; your ROM and the 313 JXD ROM contain the same size / CRC / SHA / MD5 files - so switching them wouldn't matter :-( the problem must be in the kernel.

This seems pretty common for most RK3188 devices... Not sure why.

I know the following:
Code: [Select]
cat /sys/module/mali/parameters/mali_dvfs
so (as an example): echo 50,100,200,233,266,400 > mali_dvfs

But needs reboot to become effective. however once rebooted, kernel / boot? rewrites this to old values mali_dvfs = the same as it was before. Or maybe this is fulled from the hardware itself...


EDIT: Spent a few hours tonight - pretty sure the stepping is obtained from the hardware itself (a query of sorts). This is why the same kernel can report different stepping's for each SoC type. You can basically tell the unit anything, but the value cannot be changed without kernel source. If you have a non-T unit you get up to 600MHz.

Further, the physical placement of the CPU and GPU are different on the T units (center of chip). My guess is it was done to save costs / reduce heat.

Well the good news is geek buying claims the new 16gb units are regular rk3188's.. not T-units.

Remains to be seen if how long that last though.. remember they pretty much change the specs when ever they want like they did on the 8gb's.. probably what ever deal they could get this month  ::)

Although I mostly play my T unit these days (due to QC issues on my Oct unit) the T is'nt quite as good on power but it's not as night and day as you would think.

of course in either case that mali is seriously showing it's age and needs to go.

I don't think the PowerVR powered A31 7800"A" model ever materialized.. and probably never will.
Although I'd probably find something else to complain about if it did.

Hi Webclaw and Thanks for your great work.
I flashed the 4GB Nand with swap version but I encounter a real problem :
When my device is Off and I plug in the charger, the JXD logo appears and the device is bricked.
So I have to push the reset button with a pin...
Someone else in that case ?

I tried 3 versions with the same result.  :'(
I also noticed that when I try to go to recovery mode with Volume+/power it doesnt work and I have the droid bot opened with the red triangle sign. As if there isn't any recovery installed.
Maybe it's necessary to do some wipes with recovery once the rom installed...
 I tried to install this one :

but it didn't change anything.
How to install CWM recovery please ?

What QC issues?

I bet those 16GB are old pre Oct left over Russian stock.
Well let's see, back cover has half it's teeth missing (all the ones on the bottom edge).. no biggie but it's not a tight fit and has popped off a few times, did'nt realize it was missing teeth till I got my T unit and realized it had a much tighter fit.

touch screen is flaky.. sometimes a dead zone develops in the left side.. sleeping the unit seems to fix temporarily.
Joy stick's have a bind in them.. the left stick's Y axis jumps around, so -1, 0, 1 you're ok but everything inbetween is not steady and jumps around.

Bought it from fox offer, you have to nag them to get support, they finally told me to send it in and they would pass it to JXD for repair, I asked for parts and have the repair locally (ok actually i would have just done it my self) they never said yes or no they simply stopped responding to emails.
after 6 weeks and about a dozen emails I gave up any hope of ever getting a reply.
They just wont get any more business from me.

Luckly I got a pricing error unit off DX, it's a T but at least it works.
Dino sells the touch screens, don't have a source for the joysticks, the cover while annoying is'nt critical.

Yup: http://www.willgoo.com/jxd-s7800a-game-pad-quad-core-a31s-1gb-ddr3-ips-8gb-p-357.html
pre-sell.. same as it's been for months before the "B's" started shipping.

has anyone actually gotten a "A" from willgoo?

EDIT: Spent a few hours tonight - pretty sure the stepping is obtained from the hardware itself (a query of sorts). This is why the same kernel can report different stepping's for each SoC type. You can basically tell the unit anything, but the value cannot be changed without kernel source. If you have a non-T unit you get up to 600MHz.

Does this mean that it is something normal, not an error from JXD?

But you made to overclock the GPU, how if the hardware rewrites the values?

The only Rom that worked without bricking when charging OFF is the official JXD :
http://jxd.hk/download.asp?id=1211&selectclassid=020001
I don't understand what's going on  :'(

Here is what I've got with the official ROM and the charge is ok when my device is shutdown :1
Model Number S7800
Android version 4.2.2
Baseband version : Unknown
Kernel version 3.0.36+ softwin@softwin-desktop #1
Build number S7800-T 1.6GHz-b-01-V1.0.9-20131031.144725

The recovery is Android system recovery v4.2.51

I'd really like to use Webclaw's ROM, if someone could please help me ?
Thanks.

Yeah I've this problem too ( T unit )

Don't say bricked it's only stuck. Bricked = dead device

Actually it just show jxd logo and stuck when charging powered off. The charging animation doesn't come. Not a big deal though but it happens. I'm on last 4GB inversed

Thanks for your return. I think mine is not a T version cause I preordered it a long time ago on Willgo.
By the way, did you find another solution instead of reseting the unit with a pin ?
Thanks.

Same issue here with a T device: stucked on JXD logo after charging with the tablet off  :o

Using 116-4. I think I will wait to a new release if I must reset the whole thing! Let's hope GPU frequencies are addressed also!

EDIT: my device is not soft bricked. I have quit the charging cable, then turned on the tablet without issues. The only problem in my case is that, when it is off, chargin the tablet makes to appear the JXD logo instead the battery indicator, and the screen is always on.

well I found 2 CWM recovery images, 1 was posted on a Spanish language review of the 7800,
Review:
http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=es&u=http://manguiro.blogspot.ru/2013/11/review-parte-13-primeras-impresiones.html&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dhttp://manguiro.blogspot.ru/2013/11/review-parte-13-primeras-impresiones.html%26biw%3D1517%26bih%3D741

CWM: https://mega.co.nz/#!V1ZhAIzK!Cq6JDAkkCj4c22a4LRJxKTl0Gf8qX_lga7nY3QMAGsg

 the other is a generic ramdisk only image..
http://androtab.info/clockworkmod/rockchip/rk3188/

neither of them work perfectly.

The one on the Spanish page has working ADB however the mount sdcard (for usb mass storage when hooked to a pc) does not work.

The ramdisk image has working USB... but I could not get ADB working under it.
Since you can transfer files via ADB as well as simply take out the card I ended up using the Spanish sites CWM.. ADB is more useful to me.

I believe also the Spanish image has it's own kernel so if you have a kernel issue with the ramdisk only image you wont be able to get to recovery as I understand it.

In any event download the one you wanna use, inside you'll find recovery.img and flash_image
Flash image is a partition flashing tool.

Assuming you don't have working ADB you'll wanna grab a terminal emulator off google play.
they all should work but this is the one I use most often: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jackpal.androidterm

copy recovery.img and flash_image to your sdcard.

open up terminal app and type

SU
(it will ask for super root, click grant)

now depending on if your sd card is mounted as /mnt/sdcard.. OR /mnt/external_sd/ the following will change a bit, adjust as necessary.

cp /mnt/sdcard/flash_image /system/xbin/
chmod 755 /system/xbin/flash_image
/system/xbin/flash_image recovery /mnt/sdcard/recovery.img

it will take a few seconds to flash, but should give you some indication it succeeded.

now type: reboot recovery

and this will reboot the device into recovery to make sure it was successful.

you'll need a SD card that has enough space to back up your internal flash (up to 8gb)
later on if you want to restore all you have to do is repeat flashing recovery, then boot recovery and restore your backup.

it will even save your lock screen pw/pattern so remember that.

also I am using Jelly Bean (4.2.2, JXD 1.1.4 firmware), there are Kit-Kat roms running around now and I can't swear this recovery will work on KK so keep this in mind.

Also this will not backup your sdcard so back those up your self if you need to.
I recommend off loading your CWM backup as well as your SDcard files onto a thumb drive or your computer that way you have a complete snapshot of the entire system at that time..

If all this sounds to scary you can also try the automated approach.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.koushikdutta.rommanager
It's suppose to be able to install recovery for you, I have not tried it.

just installed your latest firmware and i am one of the few to have the lock on power bug (my unit is a 7800b and not a t) i went back to your "webclaw2-0131" which had everything working fine.

I did have fun testing your "webclaw-tw116-4(4GBNANDwSDSWAP)" and other than the lock it worked quite well. i saw a performance boost on most of my android games (except for need for speed... was a little bit slower).

you are doing a great job, and hope to see and test more of your future firmware for the 7800b

It's great that you updated it but the links don't work now >.<

Also is it true you're not supposed to run games while charging?

I ask because I had just got my JXD-T about 5 days ago. I tested it out and after a while I ran antutu on stock firmware(17k) after that I decided to update to your firmware. I had hooked up the charger to do this not that I had to, the power kept i's charge a bit, anyways, I updated to your firmware and ran antutu again(20k).

However I noticed the left back side was considerably hotter. I had left the charger in and recalled seeing on the wiki that you shouldn't leave it in while playing games. SO is it the charger that does this or JXD? I was considering buying a replacement charger.

I think someone said that was what JXD said.. Personally I find that pretty bogus.
They might have said ti but the thought that It's not to be used on AC.  ::)

Anyway if you're still using the included charger I'd ditch it, I wont' go down the reasons why you should, do a search, it's been talked about quite a bit.

it will naturally get hotter when being charged + under heavy load, you've got SoC heat on top of battery charging heat.

I play mine all the time on charge, but I don't use that POS stock charger.

Charge time will be much longer though, at least double.

well you'll need a usb -> barrel plug adapter, I think it's 2.5mm.
try doing a search on the board, I made my own hack'ed cable from the stock charger.
I use a 2amp usb charger.

mono price supposedly has decent quality chargers for 5-15
just make sure it can put out at least 2 amp.

all this has been discussed quite a bit if you do a search.

Post by: darklight1138 on March 30, 2014, 11:18:16 pm
stuttering could also be a governer problem.
if you have your threshold to high what happens is it will kick down to a lower speed but then when demand rises (which will happen pretty often) it will have to kick back up.

What you end up with is little lag's where it's shifting up and down on the scale.

on the other hand if you have your threshold to low you'll end up running at a higher speed then you need to optimum battery life..

Personally I use on demand, performance bias, always go for performance bias or it will have trouble reaching max cpu speed even when you really need it.

With a threshold of 85, I've found that this provides a good blend of fast scaling and battery life with minimal or no stutter in most games.

Hey Joe, how do you mean performance bias? I have my SetCPU set for ondemand (governor) and below that, it says scheduler cfq. Are you just changing the threshold to 85 or any other settings to favor performance? Thanks bud

Edit: So far, the rom seems to run great! Haven't noticed any stuttering or weird charging issues. Noticed a slight performance boost with some PS1 games. Overall its a fast, clean, efficient rom and I am really liking it.

Thanks again, Webclaw, for the great job!!

Now just a minor thing, but is there a way to change those icons instead of being tiles with icons in them? I saw the question on this thread but there wasn't an answer. I can live with it but I like the older style. Easier for me to look at.

Post by: Joe Sixpack on March 31, 2014, 02:38:58 am
I use CPU tuner.

I/O scheduler is something else.

the threshold is the cpu load that triggers an increase in cpu speed.
I fiddled with this for a while, I finally settled on 85% because it gave the smoothest results, a lower number will cause it to scale sooner, but also means more battery being used.

I can't say I never have any hickup's but at 85 it's few and far between for me.

The powersave bias.. hmm that could be something specific to CPU tuner maybe.
I know when I had the bias on power save it never scaled to max speed even when under heavy load.
so example instead of 1.6ghz it would end up stopping at 1.4.

So I set it at max performance bias, not sure exactly how this works all I know is it will properly scale up to 1.6 this way.

I think the more you have it towards power save it just is more cautious about going up the power scale, where as at performance bias I think it just jumps up to max once the threshold is triggered.. and then scales back down to what you actually need.


BTW I only run 2 cores usually, I only goto 4 when Im doing something I know can take advantage of all 4.. and that's rare.

if im going to be playing a emulator like snes, a lot of times i'll even drop to 1 core.

Hi All.

I have my 7800B 16gb version coming in a few days and am trying to decide which Rom to use.

what the difference between this and Tans? does this Rom come with any emulator apps included? if not what do i need to add to set that up?

Also If I am planning on getting a 64gb SD card also what version is best to load? would it be the 4gb+nand/sd swap and us the SD card as internal memory?

You can use a different launcher (there are tons you can download) if you don't want the tiles. It's important to note that the new launcher is a "JXD launcher" and I don't know if the tiles can be turned off. The reason why I used this JXD Launcher is the old launcher (launcher2) had a bug that caused it to loose icons.

I had a few options, use the old launcher, use the new launcher (tiles), or put a new launcher (like Nova) with the ROM. That said, most of the "good" launchers are not free (or have a pro version) and I don't do nag screens / ads, hence my choice. Not use if GPD's launcher is bugged, but I guess that can be a future option.

As far as what type to use:

Anyone with a 16GB or larger SD card should be using 4gb+nand/sd swap. The purpose of this is to have your device store it's data on the SD Card (by default) rather than using the internal NAND memory (which is much smaller). The reason for the SWAP is that some emulators, video players, etc. will NOT give you the option to use the external SD Card as a load / save device. An example of this is downloading applications from the Google Play Store. This question has been asked a few billion times - please search in the future.

Thanks and yes I know it has.. the reason for my question was not that I did not know the specifics but just I did not know if your roms had any specifics to the amount of internal space RE 8gb units vs the 16gbs units and whether it needed different version but now i know it doesnt.

Your answer in relation to the tiles are you taling about the emulator launcher?

I understand the TAN rom comes with the same launcher or game center X software but I am guessing you have stripped this out? so with your Rom I would just download each emulator that I want and source my games else where?

There is no emulator software in my ROM - it's a completely "blank" slate (minus some stupid applications + Chinese stuff). You can freely download whatever emulator(s) you wish. The preloaded JXD stuff is rubbish (I think most would agree) and mainly designed for the non-technical / kid types.

You can use RetroArch (with GameSome header) as a first combination. Or you can use the manual X.EMU emulators out there (best in my opinion).

As far as the launcher references, this is part of the Android GUI (where you "click" icons and "launch" applications) and does not relate to the emulator frontend as no such frontend exists on my ROM.

The goal is to give users choice on what they install, not work with a pre-bloated ROM. Further Tan's packages are getting out of date (no new ROM releases), I doubt they'll all work correctly without updating - this includes HappyChick).

I don't have a 16GB device (not giving any more money to JXD until they fix their KitKat ROM's). If anyone needs a custom ROM for a 16GB device I can certainly upload something. My understanding is that most 16GB users bought their unit in Russia and are not a great participant in these forums.

Hi Webclaw! Although I'm new here, I've been watching closely your amazing work. You'll see, I've a couple of questions, but I try to avoid those that have already been answered thousand times:

I have the S7800B T- Series, and it saddens me that can't overclock the GPU to the max 600Mhz. I hope that with ROM 116.5 can be possible (since you first do it that way, but the problem was the sluttering bug, at least as far as I understood)

Now, I've seen many responses that have reviewed the disadvantages of T -Models, the different position of the CPU / GPU inside the device, someone who said he heard a slight noise from the left speaker and another that said it could feel warmer on same side. Apparently all this is related to an important detail (Dunno if you noticed, or if everyone already knows, please don't make me feel like an idiot): I'm convinced that JXD has inserted a fan system similar to notebooks, and the Post-October models receive the ''T'' for that same reason (Temperature Controller or something like that). That would explain the temperature rise on the left side, the noise and why the device is almost impossible to disassemble.

This really should be good, because that way there is better care for processors, shouldn't be an impediment to optimize the speed of GPU through your tweaks. I hope this can help with anything... as I say, I'm new in this forum and I would be happy to contribute, at least with any suggestions.

Greetings!

Ey WebClaw, I have checked the 116-5 version and it seems definitive to me (charging bug fixed, thanks!). Strangely, I changed language values in build.prop, but the tablet was still in english so I had to change this value manually on the settings. Not a problem, just a curiosity.

There are things that I do not understand well, for example why GPU on T devices run at 466 Mhz if the command dmesg reports max 428 Mhz. I think that you told this is set by hardware itself, so I will stop asking myself these questions and simply enjoy the device.

On another note, Raven, I can only tell you that I had a JXD s7300 and it was like a flamer compared to the s7800 T version. In addition, battery life seems to me astonishing, and I am sure this is due to not overclock so much the GPU and RAM. 600 Mhz is a 50% more than stock and I am not much sure about the future of these chinese components with this kind of overclock. So, yes, I am more than happy with my T version running GPU/RAM at 466 Mhz and I want to THANK WebClaw for his rom: clean, stable and powerful!

So, yes, I am more than happy with my T version running GPU/RAM at 466 Mhz and I want to THANK WebClaw for his rom: clean, stable and powerful!

There is a custom script that is added into the kernel (not by me but my JXD) that attempts to keep the DDR RAM running close as possible to the GPU. This can be seen via dmesg.

As far as what the GPU and DDR ram does when the system is running is a mixed bag. The DDR RAM clocks up and down depending on what your doing. My guess is the devs at JXD messed up (GPU @ 466MHz and DDR at 428MHz) and relied on the module limiter of Mali DVFS = 400 (max) references. For JXD units, this line has no bearing (the kernel driver is used) instead of the module. Technically it could be changed with loading up modules ahead of time...

Anyway, to answer your question. Yes the RAM on load will run at 428MHz, the GPU will max run at 466MHz. Without access to the kernel source (or a lot of work in logging) I can't see if the RAM limiter is changed when the GPU is pushed up to 466MHz.

I have used MKV and AVI formats so far(with real smooth video playback... both 720p and 1080p)

.X264 is the extension so I assume thats MKV? I've tried 3 different films all with the same issue. I've got MX player and have tried software, hardware and hardware + for playback but its the same.  It doesnt look as bad on the TV as on the screen, but not sure how much of this may be down tothe processing my TV is doing to the image.

I've linked a video I've done to try and show the problem.  The jumps tend to happen when the FPS spikes to 30 or drops to 20-22.

I do not know if this will help, I watch my movies from a usb stick (i do not use the SD card for movies).

Maybe the data transfer rate off my usb stick is helping me out... and before you ask the usb stick i use has no info or even manufacture on it. all i know is it's a usb 2.0, 7.4gb stick, with a 4096 bytes allocation unit size and a Fat32 format.

Ive tried loading movies off the internal memory also which in theory would be the fastest data rate, but it doesn't make a difference.  Not sure what the problem is.

I played my movies off of a USB stick as well. Tried mp4 and MKV (which I know is a container).  I don't know though, I could be a very bad judge. I watch movies on a small portable DVD player or my netbook. Haven't had an HD TV for about a year now (hell, haven't watched an HD TV in months).

you are right your tf card should have the fastest transfer rate, but it is all dependent on the class rating (2,4,6 and 10). minimum data transfer rate is the class number for mb/sec. (so a class 2 does 2mb /s min)

a usb a flash drive has a min of under 1 to a max of 35 mb/s. (max is 35mb/s because this unit is a usb 2.0, but with this cpu and ram i would be surprised if it could transfer past 15mb /s)

so if your tf card is a class 2 or 4 and you are watching 1080p movies of 2.5gb+ size, maybe your minimum mb/s is to low.

Is there a way to fix the second analog joystick range without having the source? I imagine not or it would already be fixed? Sorry if it's been answered before. It isn't a big deal for me as I have yet to really need it, and it does work with N64 emulation sorta.

I dont think it can be (unless you pay and download Tincore Mapper from the store)

The joystick range is fixed in JXD's beta Kit Kat firmware, but dont bother with that.  Its an absolute bag of shite and causes more issues than it fixes.

Its probably been tried already but to be honest, apart from the right joystick issue (which can be solved with software) and the HDMI out issue (which doesn't appear to bother many people anyway)  there is nothing wrong with the S7800b now as far as I know if you use these latest ROMs

As far as I am aware yes (I've read Joe Sixpack believes you have to make an in app purhcase within the software in order to get full functionality).  I have not tried it myself because in fairness, I cannot figure Tincore mapper out, its just too complicated for me to get my head round.  And apart from that, there is so little software that needs the right stick sorting its just not worth it for me.

I dont know what happens with the stock one after Tincore is installed and set up.

the problem with tincore is being able to bring up the app when you need to map something.
the stock keymapper is easy to get to since theres a button for it, and its on the nav bar. but on tincore you have to ether switch to it or map a key combo, or key sequence making it (for me at least) much harder to use.

actually you could use the same button to bring tincore up, just edit generic.kl in /system/usr/keylayout/ and change key 88 from F12 to F13 and map that key to tincore (MUST BE IN CAPS OR IT WILL MESS THE WHOLE FILE) ... i havent tried it tho, i use that key for APP_SWITCH which brings the recent apps list. my only problem is that it will still bring up the game mapper from time to time for some reason. anyone know a way to completely uninstall the jxd gamemapper?

Doubtful it will work, Skelton would have been the most likely person they'ed release to.
but they had no interest in the 78.. still Skelton did try to advocate for us.. in the end though they turned on him, calling him a competitor/spy/etc

He made a rom for another device and they wasn't happy.
Keep in mind Skelton is just a user of these types of devices like the rest of us who works on the firmware of the devices they use and releases them to the community at ZERO cost.. Skelton doesn't make a dime.

Can be fixed the right stick issue by software just downloading the Tincore Keymapper? If so, what happens then with the stock keymapper? I mean, what prevails?
Supposedly yes it can be fixed with tin core from what i've seen.

You need to pay for analog support, you can then re-calibrate the joystick.

the tincore mapper will act as a middle man.. capture analog input, scale up and then spit out the scaled analog input.

the problem with tincore is being able to bring up the app when you need to map something.
the stock keymapper is easy to get to since theres a button for it, and its on the nav bar. but on tincore you have to ether switch to it or map a key combo, or key sequence making it (for me at least) much harder to use.
you can set your own key combination to bring up the menu in the settings.

So far webclaw's ROM have ben the best for me : performance AND battery life. Couldn't expect more ...

Though I was wondering one thing, as an improvement. On his KK Rom, riley made a feature (dunno if it existed on previous releases) : the possibility of auto installing some apk on the very first boot once flashed. I must admit that, having to reinstall everything from scratch is annoying. Plus, even if your roms are debloated, one would need at least some basic apk that you removed WITHOUT going to google play everytime. Well, at least, that's my very wish :)

Sp, fetaure request : have an "auto" or "autoapk" directory on the sd that would be read on the first boot after flashing, and it would install included apks.

This way, it's MUCH easier to test, and make yourself home on the freshly flashed JXD :)

If using 116-6 try changing your CPU governor to ondemand and reset and min values.

Be warned version 116-6 is not officially released and may be need some app tweaking to get the emulators working better.

Best for everyone to stick with 116-5 which will be the last JB ROM I make for this device. 116-5 is emulator / jitter free and is considered "official". You'll note I did not change the initial thread post.

Here are my ROM assets (files I have sourced / created to make these ROM's):
http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTA1ODY/

Here are the unreleased 116-6 (BETA) ROMS:
116-6 2GB: http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTA1OTU/
116-4 4GB: http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTA1OTY/
116-6 4GB SWAP: http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTA1OTc/

* As mentioned before I suggest everyone stick with 116-5 (unless you use the device for GBA / SNES and Video Playback). PSX and PSP emulators seem to have issues (specifically resolution changes).

So I've tested 116-6 and whilst it has sorted out the problem with video and made it smoother, it has messed up emulation again  :-[  Fluctuating frame rates and stutters like before.  I wonder if its a case of having either games working perfectly or video working perfectly and not both at the same time lol ;D

EDIT:

Just found out to my cost as well that the Resolution Changer for some reason crashes this rom, so need to re flash anyway lol.

Think I'm done with this device now.  Gonna just wipe it clean and flog it on Ebay.

You can't be serious... Stuttering again???

No, 116-5 does NOT have the stuttering in android games or emulators, but for me and a couple of others, it did have issues with video playback.  116-6 solved the video playback issue, but introduced stuttering again in emulators.  So 116-5 is the best currently for gaming.

i had the same issue with the video in.5 but emulators ran fine however in .6 the video ran fine but emus lagged. honestly i would love to be able to do both but the emulators and games are the main reason i purchased this unit. thank you webclaw for all your hard work but if its at all possible i would really love to be able to do movies on this thing but i love the emus. they really need to give us all a source code so we can work this thing out right.

Quick, dumb question: how do you unhide the navigation bar (or whatever that bar at the bottom is called, that has the home, back, etc.)? On Tan's you just swipe up at the bottom of the screen but I can't seem to get this to work with this new rom. Thanks!

Oddly no, but I think its because I have Nova launcher installed and it has the dock on the bottom, maybe? I want that dock on the side like previous rom but I can't figure out how to do that. Are you familiar with Nova launcher? Pretty sure I've been through all the options but can't find a way to get the dock on the side.

I've used it once or twice but didn't really get along with it.  I use Go Launcher EX.  Quite similar, but you can mess around with everything much more to get it looking how you want it I know that much.

Strange, even without Nova launcher and just using the rom default I still can't get the nav bar to pop up even through the power button. I've seen it there, I know it. Weird.

Webclaw strange glitch with 116.5:  i lost some functionality of the menu key, i can only use it in certain programs, not in homescreen, settings and some others. I changed the dpi to 200 and that fixed the menu key. It also fixed my nova dock to be on the right side but im guessing it detected the tablet mode or something.

Edit: i mean the physical menu key. The virtual menu key wont even show up

First make a backup of build.prop in /system/  then edit it and look for the line that says something like lcd density = 170  and change that to 200 . its near the end of the file. Save it. Reboot. Profit.

I assune this is one of the thinga that make the play store more compatible but i havent run into any program that needs it for me.

Ok, tried that. Made a copy, then copied it somewhere else to edit it (because it wouldn't let me edit it from it's original location) and then pasted that back to /system. Now though it seems to be stuck in the bootanimation.

You probably typed something wrong. The line is ro.sf.lcd_density=200.

It actually would take me longer to download the tools than the reflash, lol.

Figure I'll flash .6 just to see the movie quality as I wanted to do that anyway.

Is there a certain app I should use to edit the build? I used ES note editor before. I should say I am a noob at all of this so it's no surprise I messed something up.

OK, cool.

Now I might try it again if I have the patience and courage lol.

So what I did, was made two copies. One of them I edited with the 170 to 200 dpi change. I then pasted that back into /system. Is that a good procedure or do I do something else? Thanks for you help, I meant to say before.  :)

Something that I've learned by trial and error - opposed to TANworks' firmware, if you try to change the resolution of the device it will crash the system UI and the launcher - so do not do that. If it will not restore itself to its previous self (like it did to me, using NoMone Resolution Changer), you'd have to reinstall the firmware.

Yep, I mentioned this a few pages back.  Nomone does not work on the version of Webclaws that uses the Kit Kat Launcher.  It causes the system to crash and you more or less need to reflash.  This makes emus such as PPSSPP more of a no no as it needs the resolution change in order to make a lot of games playable.

Well, maybe the next version can come with the Nova Launcher or something else, the Kit Kat launcher doesn't make much of a difference over the stock one.
On second thought, maybe that's why it was used - but it currently breaks compatibility, so it should be replaced either way.

Mame4droid doesn't do that same thing.  Changing the resolution that a game outputs doesn't actually change the supposed resolution of the screen.  NoMone changes the whole thing, so it affects program and app you run.

A different launcher may work, I never got round to trying that.

Using the other custom firmware, the resolution changer works. The other firmware uses the Nova launcher.
Also, the fact that the Launcher app and the System UI app crash indicate that it's only a launcher issue, rather than a system crash which would indicate kernel incompatibility.

I will release 116-7 tomorrow. Consider 116-6 skipped for reasons previously mentioned.
Includes CIFS, newer wifi drivers, a small build.prop change, and Apex Launcher (allows resolution changes).

If you are running 116-5 there is not a lot of changes and no real need to upgrade. I simply wanted to address a few issues other users found with the stupid JXD launcher... Can they do anything right?

Downloading as I write, I just wanted to say thank you. Writing a custom firmware to a device with literally no support from the developer takes a huge amount of effort, especially when making fixes on the fly with almost no down time.
Both you and TANworks should get paid for your work from JXD, because you're making their mediocre device relevant and good.

I've replaced the firmware.
Now I find, to some surprise, that neither a file manager nor an apk installer comes with it.
It seems to me that, in order to install any app, given the fact that I don't have wifi, I need either a file manager or an apk installer. This appears to be a bit of a cyclical situation, leaving me with an apparent inability to install any apps at all.
Is there a way around this? I know I used to have a tablet with which I could use the USB debugging mode and some program (PDAnet, maybe?) to install apps from the Google Play store. I suppose I could do that if I had the USB debugging mode driver for this device, which it seems I don't (my computer identifies the device as GT-I9500, and all I can seem to find for that is a Samsung sync application that doesn't help me in any way).
I also tried accessing the downloads folder on my SD card through Chrome. This only kind of worked. I can see the list, but when I click a file, it says "No sd card", which is odd (could it have something to do with the swap or the fact that there's no apk installer installed?). I also tried doing the same in the browser called Browser by pasting the file location. That gets me nowhere.
Pretty much all I can think of right now is re-formatting the sd card and seeing if that's the problem, but something tells me that probably isn't it (though I'll certainly come back and say so if it turns out it is).
Any ideas?

Thank you! Yes, that worked. Turns out the SD card was also corrupted, however, so I had to take one of the cards out of my camera. Not sure what's wrong with this other card, but it seemed fine in my computer, so I can probably find some use for it. Anyway, Connectify seems to work great. I didn't even know that existed.

How are you identifying 1.1.4? build.prop?
You do realize that my ROM is based on 1.1.4 - so this is normal.

What filename did you use during the upgrade process in the RK Batch Tool?

I go to tablet information on settings, and i see the build info
I think is not ur version because it show the build date and it shows 20131107

Where i should check that its your version?

Filename? U mean the .img? I used first the default name, and i tried changing it to update.img

The results are the same with both filenames

The build.prop file will have 1.1.4 references (this is normal).
Upon installation you'll note your CPU is now running at 1.6GHz (use SetCPU or CPUz to validate).

The launcher is new.
The programs WiFi Display, RK APT Installer, and RK Explorer have been removed.

If you see any of the above your not running my 1.1.6-X version.

So then im on your build and i didnt know that...lol

Sorry for my delay....i thought tablet will show 1.1.6 version when i updated

I begin the test of this KitKat ROM :

Thanks for your confidence, however KitKat = 66Hz + no vSync + buggy HDMI

So far webclaw's ROM have ben the best for me : performance AND battery life. Couldn't expect more ...

Though I was wondering one thing, as an improvement. On his KK Rom, riley made a feature (dunno if it existed on previous releases) : the possibility of auto installing some apk on the very first boot once flashed. I must admit that, having to reinstall everything from scratch is annoying. Plus, even if your roms are debloated, one would need at least some basic apk that you removed WITHOUT going to google play everytime. Well, at least, that's my very wish :)

Sp, fetaure request : have an "auto" or "autoapk" directory on the sd that would be read on the first boot after flashing, and it would install included apks.

This way, it's MUCH easier to test, and make yourself home on the freshly flashed JXD :)

sorry to insist, but I'd love to have webclaw's opinion about my suggestion

I am sure this is a dumb question and may have already been asked (not on boards much anymore, so excuse me) but I have the SD card sitting there empty with 2.4 gb, and I also have about the same amount of space available on the internal storage. I've tried moving some large apps but they do not move at all.

What can I do with that space? Just fill it up with roms/media, or is there a way to move some apps over there?

Thanks.

Post by: Joe Sixpack on April 11, 2014, 12:38:15 am
which space are you talking about the internal flash or the physical sd card?

you'll have a partition for just apps (data), with a root enabled file browser you might be able to store other stuff on it.. personally I woudl'nt though normally that's reserved for just app's and is'nt accessable.

you'll also have a partition that mimic's an sd card.. this will be mounted as either /sdcard (default) or /external_sd (if it's been swapped)

/sdcard is where bulk application data OBB , and most other settings will default too. ex: camera, voice recording, downloads.. etc

/external_sd is only good for bulk file storage, pictures, video, mp3's etc.
Think if it like a usb thumb drive.. you can access files on it but can't move any apk/obb app data to it... well I mean you could but it wont be used.

These things always confuse me lol. So pardon me if I don't explain it well.

On storage settings:
-My 64GB card is acting like the NAND. 59.45 total space (with only 500mb free :( )
-Internal storage total space is 3.94GB with 2.48GB free.
-SD card has 2.4GB total with 2.4GB free.

I have Webclaw's 4GB NAND + SD / NAND Swap  firmware.

I think I get what you're saying though.

I think I get what you're saying though.

I think I got ya.

/sdcard = 64gb sdcard
/data (apps / not accessable) is 4gb with 2.5gb free
/external_sd = internal flash partitioned as a sdcard with 2.4gb of 2.4gb free.

there Is'nt much you can do here.
you can store extra files (not used by apps) on the internal flash /external_sd

but as far as space for app's and data (OBB) you'll have to make more room on your /sdcard 64gb sdcard
What happens with apps is the apk can get stored on /data.. usually up to about 50mb, after that bulk flies will get defaulted to /sdcard... or more specifically usually /sdcard/android/data OR /sdcard/android/obb

Now there are apps out there that will help you manage symbolic links and you could map individual directors (for specific apps) to /external_sd

another thing to look at is seeing where your apps are being stored.. you MIGHT have some data that is currently on your SD card that can be sent back to "tablet" I know some apps default minimize /data partition usage.

go to settings and look for app's.. it'll show you whats stored where.

Im guessing you have a lot of non app related files on your sdcard, otherwise I suspect you'd have space to fill up the card given your 4gb of /data for apps.

so one solution would be to move some of those files like maybe movies, or mp3's to your internal 2.5gb partition.
If you're carrying around a lot of PS1 iso's you might consider offloading some of the ones you don't play often.. or perhaps get a flash drive and store some of the roms/iso's on it.

They make 90degree adapters which are pretty compact and will keep you from having to deal with a cord hanging off your system.

lastly if you play mostly at home you could setup CIFS (you can access windows/samba shares) and actually stream the files directly from your desktop/laptop/nas/etc

Wow, good info, thanks!

I am a memory hoarder lol. I have games I don't really think I'll play. So many I probably won't get around to even trying out a lot of them. But then again that's one thing I like about emu devices; I can pick it up and play a new game every day for years and years. But I do need to get around to compressing more games. I'm sure if I had a 128GB card and this thing would accept it I would fill it up too  ;D

I probably will put temp media like movies or MP3s that I already have on my main computer into that drive.

There were not any video or kernel changes that would effect video playback from -5 to -7.

No video changes were made from 116-5 to 116-7, that said video playback remains unchanged.
Video changes WERE changed from 116-6 to 116-7.

Not sure if I am understanding your statement. In any case, the video playback is good as it's going to get as the only fix (to address the vSync issues) have a negative effect on emulation.

no, i want to backup the rom installed on my jxd, i created a backup using cwm but i want backup in other format like ".img" to restore using bath tool or "sistem.img, kernel.img etc..." to restore using rockchip rom falsh tool. but i dont know how

why bother? CWM does a great job at restoring what's to be gained?
I completely cloned one of my units to the other using CWM, I keep a 8gb card around just for doing backups.

Theoretcially what you want is possible, system is just a ext4 fs, you could mount it in linux, you would need another tool on windows.

normally /data (user apps) is just a formatted partition you could probably insert your backup into it.

I have'nt tried taking CWM backups apart though.

boot/kernel is gonna be the same so you can just keep those from the stock firmware.


again not sure why you'd really wanna bother though.

basically because cwm format is not a good format be shared considering that you need to have a system with root and cwm to restore.

I see so you want to put out your own custom rom then?

try searching XDA it'll be little easier if you have access to linux so you don't have to jump thru hoops dealing with ext2/3/4 file system on windows.

I don't see any reason to stick with stock recovery, so having to have CWM is'nt a draw back imo and the stock rom (which you'll be basing off of) is already rooted.

i tryed on xda but are many old information or for other especific devices.

this method is valid for a7800b or need some modification ?

adb shell

cat /proc/mtd

dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd0 of=/sdcard/misc.img bs=4096

dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd1 of=/sdcard/kernel.img bs=4096

dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd2 of=/sdcard/boot.img bs=4096

dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd3 of=/sdcard/recovery.img bs=4096

dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd4 of=/sdcard/backup.img bs=4096

dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd5 of=/sdcard/cache.img bs=4096

dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd8 of=/sdcard/system.img bs=4096

this extract the files to internal memory

Post by: Joe Sixpack on April 16, 2014, 08:52:25 pm
depends on what you're going for.

are you wanting to include the installed (user) apps?
If so you'll need to get /data

a lot of those you can grab from the firmware image you flashed from.

ex: recovery, boot, kernel, etc
those don't change... unless you're modifying those there is no reason to dump them from your device.

/cache is not important, the stock firmware just formats that.. you can clear it from recovery at any time it will be rebuilt later so it's not necessary at all.

Im not really sure what your goal is but I'd get some tools for what ever platform you're using and extract the firmware you're using as a base.. whether that be stock, webclaws, or tan's

If you just want to make changes then it's best to do so to a freshly extracted image, anything you pull off your device is gonna be "lived in" but maybe that's the goal in which case I still think CWM backup is the way to go.

Thank´s for the info, i made my custom rom i extract the files unpacked the original .img change the files and packed again, i can flash the .img with batch tool all worked perfect, only the last step "verifying firmware" fails but i reset the jxd and all is correctly write, any solution for the test firmware fail on batch tool ?

i don´t understand you position, i´m asked to you because you have a great knowledge about the s7800b roms, your product is not a comercial rom, i don´t use your rom for nothing and we are a community with one objective a better user experience with s7800b. I´m not hacking your ROM or something, JXD don´t offers the source and all custom roms are a hack.

it might be that it flashed ok but that batchtool doesn't like your img, might be "okay" but technically wrong.

I dunno.

WC is right though you should start a new thread the conversation is running a bit long in his thread.


Once again though I'd suggest just going with CWM, it's actually less hassle then RKbatch imo.

Just wanted to say (Again) thank you Webclaw for all the hard work. Also, I just want to say that people who do these custom roms should realize that you (amongst others) are only trying to help them improve their roms by telling them what works and what doesn't. I mean isn't that what these forum's are for in the first place. Why get all defensive when someone tells you something is wrong. Me myself, I appreciate the input when i do these things, which unfortunately isn't often, because it helps me to go back and try to figure out what's wrong. Some people just need to realize that coding and working these firmwares is no easy task especially without the source, Which is why i have yet to work on the roms for 7800b. By the way I like TANs rom but prefer yours since the nand swap option because i hate having to go in and manually remove all the crap that is unwanted or useless. Once again thank you

I've just installed 116.7 4GB, and I'm having a REALLY DAMN SERIOUS problem here.

At first it works fine, but as soon as you summon the stock mapper and save it, almost everything gets absolutely non-responsive. On the 'desktop', it does not let me click, or hold, or drag anything! It detects a double tap and shows Apex's menu, but it won't let me choose anything from it. Touching the icons of the status bar makes them flash for a moment, but nothing happens. The mapper itself becomes mostly non-responsive too. Even with a mouse, everything gets absolutely unusable.

I will try some completely different ROM next to be sure it's not an issue with my hardware.

Installed Exucaveira, and now the issue doesn't happen on the desktop... but it keeps happening on other apps! :o

This is crazy. The mapper only breaks one application at a time, and they come back to normal if I do a factory reset, but it keeps happening, even with completely different ROMs. What could this be?

(EDIT) restored the stock 1.1.4 firmware... still the same problem. :'(

Maybe you have an input that is constantly sending something, like a button stuck or something, get input debugger from playstore. See if there is something sended from input when you activate the mapper and you dont touch anything.

Your not alone, my wife's JXD S7800B also had a bad stick (left one).
You can try to open the case up and pull then replace the cap guard on the right stick - also I little WD40 may also do the trick.

has anyone found a source of replacement sticks?

the left one on my oct unit has gotten so bad it's got tremendous amount of play in it now, for a while it had some jitter in it that seems to have gone away.. but it's not smooth and sometimes can even hear the metal bands in it catching/grinding.. it's a wreck.. yet it still works.. i've seen this on PS/Xbox controllers so I know this will only continue to get worse.

I can find replacement's for those but I think JXD uses a smaller version also no indent button.. so Im not sure where to source parts..

Zilch, @Joe.

I ended up swapping my wife's left stick with her right stick and the problem still persisted. Not sure why - it's a junk device now. Besides that, it's pain in the arse to replace the sticks. I really had difficultly, the cheap ribbon cables are very fragile and the solder points on them are pretty tight. The solder JXD guys use is also very cheap (low melting point) - kinda a blob approach.

Have you tried Alibaba?

Post by: Joe Sixpack on April 20, 2014, 05:30:47 pm
have not tried alibaba I'll look into it I really need to take the unit apart and take measurements I guess.

you said ribbon cable? I thought they had them soldered direction to the PCB.. no?
Mine seems to be a physical problem (can hear/feel binding, increased play), circuitry wise I think everything is good.
Title: Re: Version 2: S7800B 1.6GHz - (Tweaked+vSync Fix+60Hz+Apex Launcher) ROMs
Post by: WebClaw on April 20, 2014, 05:36:13 pm
There is a cable that joins the right side (right side of battery), runs goes under the battery, and then bridges the left side of the unit together (strictly I/O and +5V is my guess).

Reworking causes this to fall off very easily, there are 12 contact points on the ribbon cable which are (again) hard to solder back on once removed.

The cable needs to be removed in order to replace the sticks as any hot air during rework would melt the cheap cable.

ya you'll need to format it to fat32.
7800 isn't able to read exfat due to licensing.

There was some leaked samsung code that could enable exfat on android.
Im not sure if it could be complied into a kernel module and loaded after the fact or if it needs to be part of the kernel source.

Of course it would be breaking licensing and microsoft wouldn't get their 2 dollars or what ever it is they charge.. how many of us care? I know I don't.

remember the limiitation though.. fat32 only allows up to 4gb single files, this should'nt be a problem though unless you're a nut job who likes to run obscenely high res video on their android.

Seen some people crying about blu-ray rips before.

I could make the drivers work on Windows 8.1
-> it's a pain to install
-> you have to play around w/ devices in the devices manager
-> you have to configure RKBatchTool to use USB1, not USB2

webclaw would the lack of uinput (i say lack cause of tincore saying so) affect gamepad in games? i have tried everything to make the controls work in the bards tale without success, i even connected a wired xbox 360 controller without success (which does work when connected to my galaxy s3). it works in the main menu, but not in game.

I believe the stock kernel has that does'nt it? so WC's should too

What do you think guys, is the best option of the three roms( I mean 2gb. 4gb....)?

Greetings
Go with the 4.. I've got my partitioned into 6 and already have 2.5gb used.
I might not ever fill it up but you can always get a 64gb sdcard for extra files, how badly are you going to miss a few gb's on internal storage for random files?

however the other train of thought is you could just keep "send to sd"ing app's and you can stretch out your app space quite a bit, personally i'd rather just keep a lion share of my app data on the internal mem and use my sdcard for bulk files and app data/obb.

depends on how you want to approach how your apps are stored.

one more reason to hope for a source release XD (im guessing uinput cant be added to current kernel? )

In case you need uinput just compile any Rk generic kernel (any from a tvbox should be fine), and add this to config file:

CONFIG_INPUT_UINPUT=m

That should create a uinput.ko file that can be loaded via init.rc, init.d or they way you prefer....

I don't remember tincore complaining but it's been a while since I installed it.
I rarely use it, it complains if you touch the analogs even if you aren't remapping.

if you know of a way of checking I can check it out on my Oct unit, It runs stock kernel.

I think I now understand why Maetel thinks his ROM's has a working vSync fix.

As we all know (aside from Maetel) patchomatic does not work with the JXD ROM - that said using a stock SKD hwcomposer.so file in the /system/lib will bypass the frame dropping issues. It was then discovered in my ROM 116-6 that using this hwcomposer.so file instead of the one that comes stock with JXD caused unwanted graphical bugs with emulators.

Maetel simply stole my kernel thinking this would have the vSync fix (I'm guessing here but based on the way the kitchen sink that been included in his ROM I am most likely right). This would also indicate why he's unwilling to answer any questions.

For all those (including Maetel {I will save you the time from having to read}) who wish to use this SDK 2.0 hwcomposer file it's freely available in the files I used to create my ROMs (see item description).

That said, the 60Hz fix is completely bogus as no such fix is required.

Folks,

I just thought I should confirm things before I take the plunge and install this ROM. I have a new 16GB version of the S7800B on the way from Geekbuying. From what I have read this ROM is compatible with all versions of the S7800B including the 16GB version.

I propose to add an additional 16GB SD Card to the device.

Therefore am I right to assume that the Webclaw-tw116-7 version of 4GB NAND + SD / NAND swap ROM is the way to go for the 16GB version of the S7800B with a 16GB SD Card.

Thanks in advance for your replies, and thanks WebClaw for your work on this ROM.

Cheers

the SD / NAND Swap means that when I download an apk, it will be installed in NAND with the chance to move it in my EXTERNAL 32 GB SD CARD, right?

Correct.

no dice, gives me an "exec format error"

opened the file and vermagic is for 3.0.8 (vermagic=3.0.36+ preempt mod_unload modversions ARMv7)

i have kernel 3.0.36+ ( latest webclaw)

I see, it's normal that doesn't work if it's 3.0.8. I'll try to compile you something when I get home

Edit: try this one to see if there is luck

Though the fact jxd kernel use modversions is not nice....

How I can install the uinput file?

Copy the file uinput.ko to /system/lib/modules
Using adb, or android terminal emulation type
Su
Insmod  /system/lib/module/uinput.ko

And if successful (ill check if it works after brwakfas) type lsmod to seen if it loaded

If you load from another route do you get the same results? (for instance placing it in sdcard or something...)

I installed the latest WebClaw's rom [webclaw-tw116-7.img - 4GB NAND + SD / NAND Swap].
I noticed a couple of issues.
First of all (but I never tried before so I don't know if it's rom problem or tablet problem), when I connect my s7800b to the USB on my pc, it doesn't recharge. Same thing if I use the USB cable with a wall charger: no recharge. Tried a bunch of USB cables, from its own one to other cables: NOTHING.  :-X And yesterday I spent 5 euros for a 2.1A wall charger  :(
Should I follow this guide from XDA (http://tinyurl.com/pypcq8y) to make it work? Or should I cut a USB like I did with the HDMI? This second chance doesn't seem correct, because when I connect my tab to the pc, it says he finds a USB.
Then, I noticed a lag when I rotate my tablet from horizontal to vertical. I know it was a issue on the previous rom, but now the lag is longer. Does it depend on the launcher? I've been using Nova in the previous rom...if so, I'll try to install Nova and then post my impressions here. When I switch on the tablet, though it's horizontal, the screen goes automatically vertical...
Last but not least. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can someone link me to a guide I can read in order to understand how to setup CPU Tuner? by the moment, GRAZIE MILLE!!!

nicole you should really read the guides and posts better.. you CANNOT charge the s7800b through the USB port.. in fact some have said that connecting a fast charger to the USB port damaged their units.

the only way to charge the tablet is through the DC port, so use your wall charger and get a usb to dc cable (use the forum guides to find out which one)

Nicole could solder the charging port to the voltage pin of the usb port.
This would make charging over USB possible.

OK, I’m going to ask some very noob questions here but I’d rather be sure before I start.
I have read the Installation instructions and a number of the clarification posts, but I thought I would just run through a few things. I have the Rockchip drivers installed from when I put a new ROM on my TV Box, unsure if they are the same drivers and will change the process.

1.   If I already have drivers installed on my PC how does this change the process? Will the RKBatch Tool go straight to the green status colour when I select “Switch” the first time and I proceed from this point when I run the tool.
2.   If I’m doing the 4GB NAND + SD / NAND Swap. Do you put the SD Card in / leave it out/ or does it not matter.

From my reading I gather that I will need to do the following if I have drivers already installed:
a.   Connect my device to the PC via USB2
b.   Turn on the device
c.   Run the RKBatch Tool
d.   Select “Switch”
e.   The status area will turn green.
f.   Browse to the “webclaw-tw116-7(4GBSWAP).img” file
g.   Select “Restore”
h.   Wait for the device to do it's stuff and reboot
i.   I’m done?

Sorry for the basic questions and thanks for your replies

Correct.. just make sure your SD card is removed from your device before doing any of this otherwise windows will show two unknown devices.. or in your case the drivers for the chip + sd card and that can get confusing..

Once the Rom is installed put the chip back in and it should mount it.

I should note that it's best policy to ensure your SD card in inside the unit prior to turning it on (after the flash completes). That way, the mount functions complete.

Enigma you are right. Flash the new ROM without the SD inside the jxd. I suggest to use Windows 7 32 bit.

Current Version: webclaw-tw116-7.img:

Download: (4GB NAND + SD / NAND Swap): http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTA3NjA/

Installation:
1. Download Rockchip Batch Tool 1.7: http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_OTM0OA/
2. Connect your S7800B to your computer via USB 2.0 (avoid USB 3.0 ports).
3. Power up your device and run the file RKBatchTool.exe (requires administrator) on your computer.
4. You'll note the tool shows a pink color indicating the status (device is connected).
5. Click the "Switch" button and your device will reboot. Install drivers via Device Manager.
6. Press the "Reset" button your device, wait for it to boot up.
7. Again, click the "Switch" button, this time the area above will turn green - programming mode ready (if it doesn't you didn't install the driver).
8. Select the desired flash image file (.img) and press "Restore".

WebClaw I flashed again this ROM, because I made some mistakes downloading some scripts. I would like to know why it boots in portrait mode, and when I turn the tablet horizontally, it lags a lot before changing from portrait to landscape. Is it a Apex Launcher issue? Should I configure something else?

Post by: WebClaw on May 01, 2014, 07:37:44 pm
What scripts did you add?

It's normal (on the initial startup) for the GUI to become a bit slower as the device is executing a lot background tasks (first run). I can't replicate the slow-down issues after the device has been running for a few minutes.

Further, what have you set your CPU at? The default governor is not the best.

I think there is a separate thread for that question. Might want to look for that and let this thread be for discussion/support for WebClaw's rom.

Just looked and here is one. A bit old but maybe you can get some new replies to help you better, especially considering new roms and versions that have come out since.

Not into self-promotion. Would rather you make your own decision.
SuperCharged OC kernels outperforms my ROM (terms of speed) IF you have a unit pre-October of 2013. If you have a post Oct 2013 unit you do not want to use SuperCharged. I'm not sure about stability - never used SuperCharged ROM's; however if you review the ROM threads I'm sure you'll find what you seek.

You might not be but I'll promote it for ya ;)

Use webclaws, Tan hasn't been seen in a while and there was people having their devices turn off in sleep..

I'd recommend Webclaws firmware.

Tan's might be faster but I suspect it's also pushing the Chips way harder then is safe, chasing that white rabbit ain't worth it and might send your unit to a early grave.

It's clean and fast.

The right joystick don´t work well in older 1.1.4 based roms (webclaw, supergarged, or stock jxd) only works in 1.1.5 roms (2014) like my rom or Maetel´rom.

I don't have DT2 so I can't help much, but it is a known issue. Your only solution may be to download Tincore keymapper, from what I've heard. It's free but there are in-app purchases which I think are required to getting the right joystick to work. I've never used it and have heard it's a bit complicated to get set up, but there is a guide somewhere (not sure where) on how to set it up.

Oddly enough, my right joystick works with Dead Trigger 1.

Yup I had same issue.
DT1 is fine with it, DT2 not so much.
It's cause the right stick does not report the full range.. instead of -1 <-> 0 <-> +1
it's more like about -0.5 / +0.5

Tincores mapper lets you "recalibrate" the joystick but that's a paid feature.. so is if you want to use teh joysticks as it counts as "analog" output feature.

it's worth nothing that this applies even if you dont' actually remap the analogs..
like say you just wanted to switch 2 of the buttons around.. even though you did'nt map the analogs in anyway touching them will bring up a nag screen.

so tin core should fix your problem but it's not a free solution.



In the end I decided to just uninstall DT2.. I played the first level via touch screen.. I thought it was gonna have multi player but apparently it's not.. it's just more of the same as DT1.. and while it's got some improvements I personally got tried of the repetition.. just a rehashing of the same ***** game.

When are these android dev's gonna realize mutliplayer is important.. *grunt* waste of space.. DT1 fills the got 5 mins to waste "kill some zombies" itch


but that's just me.

Webclaw, do you mind if I ask what are the differences between using the stock mali drivers in 1.1.4 and the updated ones? Is performance really hurt/improved?

Speaking with a guy on a different forum, who recently purchased a JXD S7800B, he explained to me how he is being able to run Mupen64+ core at Retroarch flawlessly with the stock rom, while it always crashes on my device with -7 (same issue that this one (https://github.com/libretro/RetroArch/issues/547)), looks like due buggy drivers.

I read a similar report from an user of a GPD G7, who I believe had one of skelton roms with newer drivers as well on his device, so I think this could be an issue affecting all RK3188(T) devices and not just ours.

Is it really worthy to use the new ones then? Note that this is the only problem I found that seems to point directly to the newer drivers, so it is not really a big deal, but I am a bit curious about it.

Gold, If Im not mistaken that's how much is allocated for the /data partition that app's are installed.. or at least the base program.

The rest of the flash memory is allocated to act as a pseudo sdcard.

I'd recommend going with the 4gb if you have a decent size SDcard AND will be installing many apps.
if you're mostly going for emulators OR if have small (or no) sdcard you'll want to go with the smaller 2gb to give your self some extra file space for roms, mp3's etc.

Personally I think going large on app space and then getting as big a sdcard as you can muster is the way to go but if you don't have plans for a lot of apps other then emulators it will probably goto waste since you don't normally use the partition for anything but installed apps so it's reserved space.

Nice didn't even know they had 128gb micro cards.
I agree should be ok, fat32 is technically ok up to 2tb, but it gets pretty inefficient the larger the volume.

let us know how it goes, btw where did you get it and aprox what was the price? I picked up a 64gb samsung recently for 36USD.. It's a nice size but I could always find more crap to pile onto it ;D

Just got my S7800B through today, Took the advice of another thread and left the stock charger in the box, Currently charging the unit from my Galaxy tab 7.7  3 prong usb with the usb to power cable which I had laying about (don't ask me why) Couple of newbie questions  :-[
My JXD is the 16gb model, in the page 1 instructions for installing the new fw it mentions different kernels for better results, I've downloaded the 4GB NAND + SD / NAND Swap, is this the correct one for my JXD ? I take it with the nand swap feature I can have multiple nands to switch between ?
tnx.

Dear webclaw maybe my question deserves no reply, this will not be corrected by you I have installed version 2 GB nand and 116.7 playstore I not compatible applications although it is recognized as gt-i9500. question: what to do.

Hy all...
I flash my unit with Webclaws V2.0 (and much thankfully for his work) and Im very statisfied, and flash TWRP recovery too.
Anything is fine.
Sys parameters: Kernel 1.1.4 JB 4.2.2 1.6 GHZ CPU WC V2.0 CFW Recovery: TWRP 2.7.0

Just one anolying issue: randomly pop up the bottom navigation bar.
Is there a way, to completely disable it?
I read back the forum, but I didnt find the answer.
Somebody ask reverse thing, how to pull up again, but I want disable it.
There is a phisical button, and I never used the bottom bar.
Please advise.. :)
BTW I use the preinstalled Apex launcher, and it works fine.

Hi there, since updating to this rom my ps1 emulation and reicast (dreamcast emulation) has had glitchy sound, my jxd s7800b was got recently so I guess its a post October model, just curious if there is a way to fix this or do I need to change to another rom? if so do you have any recommendations? thanks!

That will be down to the fact that this ROM has the Vsync fix (which makes video playback much better).

Unfortunately the downside to this fix is that it throws emulation out slightly.  Which can cause slight hiccups in framerate in emulators or pops and small glitches in sound.  Its a tradeoff really.  You can either have perfect emulation or perfect video playback but not both.

Webclaw did do a recent(ish) firmware without the Vsync fix in place...but I cant find it ???

The latest version -7 does NOT have the vSync fix in it - so this wouldn't be the problem.
Is the sound glitchy on all emulation platforms or just PSX?

thanks for the info :)
the emulation is laggy on ps1, psp and dreamcast games (that's all I use for emulation that's more demanding really)
other emulators work great (sega, gba).
Its just whenever I got the tablet it ran the ps1 and dreamcast emulators basically perfect, with no sound lags, but now theres always slight sound lags throughout gameplay, although the gameplay itself seems to be fine.
thanks in advance!

It does not have the v-sync fix? Then why do you include it in the rom description?

I thought that video issues were due to other causes, not v-sync fix. So if we want good emulation, we must give up with the v-sync fix...

By the way WebClaw, any new about the last official release? What about the new keymapper? Will we see a 8 version of your firmware soon?

Been super busy with work (real-life) and haven't had much time to review and test everything.
116-6, and 116-1 has the vSync fix - the links are in the thread should you wish to download it.

116-7 is considered stable (best for emulation) those who wish to have a "true" vSync fix can use 116-6 however it was stated he caused emulators to crash.

I'm off this weekend, if I have time I'll push 116-8.

Hi Webclaw, sorry not sure if this message sent through PM, so posting it here also.
Could you send me the link to your 116-7 rom? i'm not sure if I downloaded the wrong one or not whenever the emulation sound was glitchy.
Does the 116-7 rom have the 60hz fix? does this mean PS1 and Dreamcast emulation will be fixed to avoid those glitches in sound periodically?
Download: (2GB NAND): http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTA3NTg/
Download: (4GB NAND): http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTA3NTk/
Download: (4GB NAND + SD / NAND Swap): http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTA3NjA/
when I tried your rom I downloaded the 2GB NAND one, and that's when the glitchy sounds started happening on my emulators.
Is this the 116-7 rom from those links above? thanks in advance!

you can set the rotate lock in settings.

if you use the rotate auto/lock icon on the pull down menu on the notification bar it will set teh screen to auto rotate every time you reboot.

this is kinda a pita since you sometimes need to enable auto rotate temporarily.. even if you click it to auto then back to lock it wont remember the lock setting on reboot unless you set it thru the settings.
At least this has been my exp.

I normally just hit lock on the pull down menu once Im booted.. I dont' reboot very often and even though it's a bit annoying it's the simplest way of doing things.

Hey guys, I re-installed Webclaws 116-7 rom and then installed setCPU, changed it to performance and emulation is wonderful!
My question is, are there any alternative settings I can make instead of having it on performance all the time?
I read somewhere using the setting ondemand, and threshold 85. I tried that but it doesn't work (emulation has breakages in sound)
Even if I set the CPU to always stay at 1.6ghz on ondemand it still doesn't do emulation as good as the performance option, which always runs 4 cores at 1.6ghz, so i'm confused why it doesn't?
My only issue is with the sound breakages during emulation, if anyone knows a fix for that that doesn't involve using the performance option all the time (as battery drains and worried if its safe or not).
Thanks!

I use ondemand with no issues. What emulator are you using? If you mean PSP, Dreamcast or Mame4Droid for some games, it is normal that they do not run at 100% even on performance.

Hey, the reicast emulator has very few sound glitches when I have it on performance, when I have it on ondemand, you can hear more sound glitches during certain parts of gameplay.
Like sonic adventure 2 for example, some levels there is sound glitching, but when I have performance on there is nothing.
Same goes for PS1 and N64 emulation, its better when performance is on, but when its on ondemand the sound has more noticeable sound glitches :/

I do not know what exactly do you mean with glitches, but with those games it can be usual to not run at 100%. In these cases, switch to performance can help, of course.

Try to run a game of the Sega Genesis / Megradrive, or the NES, for example, and check if it goes perfectly. If yes, then your tablet has not Hz issues, simply you are running games on emulators not fully tested, or games that requires so much power.

Tune your ondemand governor for a 85 threashold and full performance bias.
It maybe not preform 100% as well as performance governor (which is just max speed), but will preform about 99% as well and save you a lot of battery.

If you have the bias at anything but performance it'll have trouble scaling to the maximum speed even when it's needed.
the threshold is what tells it when to scale up.. to low of a setting means it scales unnecessarily, to high means it will scale to slow and cause stutters,

I found 85 to be the best, anything over about 87, 88 you start getting a lot of glitches.

85 performance bias seems to be the best all around.

Excuse me for my ignorance, but how do you do that? I only know how to change governor and CPU clock on SetCPU. What is the threashold and the bias???

Post by: Joe Sixpack on June 04, 2014, 04:53:52 am
Ah, Well It might not be have a option to set those settings, Im not sure, I use Cpu Tuner.
I believe the default threshold on "ondemand" is 95.. I could be wrong.

Threshold tells the governor when to scale up.. I think it is equal to % utilized.. EX: @ 85% utilization at current frequency.. it scales up to the next frequency.

I could have that a bit wrong but one thing is for sure lower threshold = faster response to demand.. too low of a threshold will lead to lingering at higher speeds unnecessarily (eating battery), while high threshold will lead to delayed scaling and jerky performance.

I have found 85 to be the sweet spot.

Bias Im not exactly sure how this works.. only thing I can tell for sure is it has an effect on how high the freq is allowed to scale.

you have 2 options performance or power save, it's a sliding scale so it's not all or nothing.
To be honest im not really sure what this specifically does.. I have a few theories but none of them fit completely.
Only thing I can say for sure is the closer you have it to Power Saving the longer it takes to hit the top max freq, so much in fact that on full power saving bias it will almost never switched to max speed even when under heavy workload.

So I use full performance so that it has no problem scaling to top speed when it needs to.
with that in mind it will not stay at max speed if it does not need it.


I use cpu tuner which gives access to these 2 options, other governor have other options.
Other cpu setting app's might not give you access to those options.. I can't say for sure.
I've found on demand works best.. avoid interactive governor it just plain sucks.

I use Set Cpu, the threshold option in that is under governer tab, and I only see a powersave bias below it which is controlled by a number, what is CPU tuner? is it on the play store and does it say (for rooted phones) in brackets? I downloaded that but it doesn't have settings like ondemand and stuff, all I see is stuff like power save, extreme power save, etc.
Thanks very much for the info btw! :) hopefully I'll get to try it out and it'll work if I can find a CPU controller that allows it.

yup cpu tuner is for rooted phones, you gotta be rooted to change governors.
It's free do a search on play store.

as far as set cpu sounds like you could do this setup on that.. the bias is a scale on cpu tuner so im not sure what that scale translates to..

-100 <-> 0 <-> 100
or maybe 0 - 100

probably 0 is the value you want but I'd only be guessing, does set cpu give you any hints where you can set the value?

I posted my cpu tuner config over here: http://boards.dingoonity.org/jxd-devices/tasker-and-cpu-tuner-configurations/
if you get cpu tuner and want to use my settings.

yup cpu tuner is for rooted phones, you gotta be rooted to change governors.
It's free do a search on play store.

as far as set cpu sounds like you could do this setup on that.. the bias is a scale on cpu tuner so im not sure what that scale translates to..

-100 <-> 0 <-> 100
or maybe 0 - 100

probably 0 is the value you want but I'd only be guessing, does set cpu give you any hints where you can set the value?

I posted my cpu tuner config over here: http://boards.dingoonity.org/jxd-devices/tasker-and-cpu-tuner-configurations/
if you get cpu tuner and want to use my settings.

Thanks a bunch for the help! :D gonna download your settings now and give it a go.

No, this is controlled by the kernel.
116-7 is JB
116-8 is KitKat

They cannot be backported.

If this was an option rest assured I was have already done it ;-)

You can use Tincore's keymapper if you wish, I believe you can recalibrate the right analog stick to get it working with 1.4X (> 116-7 ROM's).

Perhaps, it depends if and when JXD releases a kernel that solves the following outstanding issues:

- 66Hz bug.
- HDMI output bug.

No, not overclocked.
JXD is now compressing their S7800B kernels which makes overclocks impossible without the source code (or an uncompressed kernel).

Mmm... Then, meanwhile issues with video shuttering and HDMI fps rest unchanged, I think I will stay on 7.

In fact, WebClaw, what are the upgrades in 8? Keymapper? What more? Thanks for your work!

There is a new keymapper and vSync issues are solved at the kernel level (no more tricking frame rate drops using a hacked hwcomposer).

Thanks. What do you recommend? Should I stay on 7? It works great, but i'd hate to miss out on new features. Don't have problems with the right stick not working.

My main use is just emulators.

Current Version: webclaw-tw116-7.img:

This is a collection of ROM's for all JXD S7800B devices (3188 & 3188-T SoC's). These ROM's include a working vSync fix (resolves frame dropping issues) in games and when playing back video / movies. Battery life is also significantly increased! Includes all previous stock JXD fixes, my previous "WebClaw ROM v1.0.2" fixes as well as SD Card Swap w/better Google Play Store compatibility.

I've tried to include fixes, patches, and features based on everyone's feedback ("some people like this, some people like that") - hence the ROM collection.

On another note, the new Kernels (dubbed by JXD as version 1.1.5 and / or KitKat versions) are [currently] terrible. I won't be creating a new / updated 1.X ROM as I think we've all beaten the 1.X versions to death. Hopefully JXD will come up with something good w/KitKat.

Over 29000+ downloads!

webclaw-tw116-7.img: (recommended - CPU speed is not everything).
Code: [Select]
CPU @ 1.6GHz
GPU OC @ 600MHz (better performance for PSP and PSX games).
RAM OC @ 600MHz (better performance for PSP and PSX games).
vSync issues fixed!
Removed (Stupid) Applications
New Apex Launcher - no more missing icons!
2GB/4GB NAND Storage (option)
Fixed JXD keymapper update system.
SD Card / NAND Swapped (option)
Play Store Fixes w/Improved Play Store Compatibility
Performance updated MALI (video) drivers
Built on my WebClaw 1-02 Kernel
Added CIFS Support
Updated WiFi drivers
Download: (2GB NAND): http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTA3NTg/
Download: (4GB NAND): http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTA3NTk/
Download: (4GB NAND + SD / NAND Swap): http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTA3NjA/

BETA (116-8):
Download: (4GB NAND): http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_MTE3NDU/

* Note that the GPU OC works on non-T series only; for those who have devices made post October 2013 the CPU will run at 1.6GHz but the GPU will max at 466MHz (which is still technically an OC). Attempts to bypass this (and allow the 600MHz GPU OC on all devices) resulted in choppy performance is PSX and PSP emulators. In all cases the DDR RAM will run at the same speed as the GPU (466MHz with T series and 600MHz with non T series devices).

Change Log:
117.7 // Fixed resolution changer, removed JXD launcher, added Apex Launcher, modified build.prop, added CIFS support, new WiFi drivers
116.6 // Skipped (introduced some graphical issues).
116.5 // more build.prop changes (Samsung S4), fixed charging powered off bug, fixed stuttering bugs, fixed resume from sleep.
116.4 // build.prop and boot.img optimizations.
116.3 // Reverted back to 1.02b kernel - solved stuttering issues.
116.2 // Added new launcher, added 4GB options, cleaned up additional applications. Introduced Mali and DDR OC's.
116.1 // Initial release 4GB options, updated PlayStore hack. Fixed JXD Keymapper. Added vSync fix. Imported fixes from 1-02.

Removed (Stupid) Applications:
WifiDisplay.apk (simply put, it doesn't work right)
RkApkinstaller.apk
RkExplorer.apk (just about anything off the Play Store is better - serious users get Root Explorer)
+ anything else Chinese (bloatware crap)

* All ROM's are properly rooted with the latest SU binary and SuperSU apk. Emulators run at 60Hz.

Installation:
1. Download Rockchip Batch Tool 1.7: http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_OTM0OA/
2. Connect your S7800B to your computer via USB 2.0 (avoid USB 3.0 ports).
3. Power up your device and run the file RKBatchTool.exe (requires administrator) on your computer.
4. You'll note the tool shows a pink color indicating the status (device is connected).
5. Click the "Switch" button and your device will reboot. Install drivers via Device Manager.
6. Press the "Reset" button your device, wait for it to boot up.
7. Again, click the "Switch" button, this time the area above will turn green - programming mode ready (if it doesn't you didn't install the driver).
8. Select the desired flash image file (.img) and press "Restore".

* Boot.img (root and charging fixes), Kernel.img (overclock and general function) and System.img (vSync + JXD fixes) have been modified - you can't simply replace the Kernel. A full "Restore" is required.

Known Issues:
  • HDMI video output capped at 42FPS (max).

Why are there so many ROM releases?
The JXD S7800B is a pretty unique device. Two versions of this unit exist, and each require a different kernel to get the best speed of out them. Fix one issue, and it breaks RK3188-T devices, fix another and RK3188 users have problems. It's very hard to balance both. Competition out there really is focused on RK3188-T devices - which means they are slower but only have a single kernel (so modifications are easy to test). Further, there were many ROM versions released by JXD (.05, .08, .09, .14, and .16). JXD never released very good release notes on what changes were in these ROM's. This doesn't help ROM developers like me as now I and the community have to test things to find out! Lastly, JXD has not released the a source Kernel, so updates and fixes are nothing more than hackjobs.

The wireless chipset in my s7800b is a Realtek RTL8188ETV

I should know, I spent a ton of time replacing the wifi antenna this week.  Stupid thing was shorted to the EMI shield of the cable.  Every single JXD product I've gotten has had the wifi antenna shorted or otherwise malfunction.

If anyone is interested, you can get a TE Connectivity wifi antenna (use model #2118060-1) from Mouser electronics for about $10 (inc shipping)  It's a genuine Tyco Electronics device - the things on Amazon and Ebay labeled Tyco are all chinese knockoffs.

I went from -55dbm (3 bars) when standing 8 feet from my wifi router to -43dbm and 4 bars, with no more packet loss or other issues (there's more to wifi than just signal strength, after all)

Highly recommend doing this mod if you have bad wifi signals, or at the very least get out a multimeter and check if the internal wire on the antenna is shorted to the braiding between the inner wire and the outer jacketing.  If yes, your wifi will forever suck with this thing.

I have this problem, too. If it's charging and off, it turns itself on. When it boots, if it isn't touched, it turns itself off - so the cycle continues).

I've temporarily got around this by installing a no sleep program from the store, and also a night clock, so leaving it charging with the clock on means it doesn't reboot. But it's a pain that I can't put it to sleep at all - the hardware button turns it straight off.

If anyone works out how to fix this, do let me know. I've tried all ROMs - stock, Supercharged and this all with the same result.

I did some testing with my JXD S7800. It seems the power button is broken. It is pushed into the case and its pushing the internal switch. I m mailed the shop and waiting for an option. Hopefully I can get my money back and buy the shield instead. And if I don't get an option to choose I would open the JXD and try to repair it. I think some glue and a larger power button will do.

ok i think i did it, i updated to stock rom, then rebooted and restored to webclaw.

How do i get apps/ data to use the 64gb card i put in it? i thought with CFW it would automatically be set ?

Beta is beta guys - there's a reason why 116-7 is still the latest official.

I didnt install the beta, but i do now know what caused the error for me. I was going through a USB powered HUB and every time got the IDB fail message, go straight to the computer and BAM! Worked a treat.

Bump;

New 116-9 released.
Main changes are build.prop and new vSync Fix technique (stops the game crash issues).
PlayStore compatibility should be near perfect.
Detailed release notes in initial thread post.

ROM collections for all devices active, including new 6GB ROM versions (with and without SD swap).

I was also nice to everyone and made direct download links. No more file download website bs...

When you say stops game crash issues, is that another way of saying Vysnc and emulation play nicely alongside each other now?  :)

Yup, tested with GTA3, SNES.EMU, NES.EMU, and GBA,EMU.

Sorry K77 - still working on the HDMI stuff - but we're working on it. I'm not permitted to say much, but suffice it to say JXD is playing nice with me right now - hence the new ROM release.

Till now i have maetel's prometheum rom, and i have no complains, exept the swap function and the fact that greek language is not included . It's time to move on and try webclaw's . I have a good feeling for this new rom .

First attempt i used all the steps and the restore of the rom failed .

Redownload the ROM (just in case). Erase your IDB, then rerun the flash program. My guess is your using KitKat with the version 2.X bootloader.

Thanks to rdf1979 i manage to bring back to life the unit . So i paste what he wrote  :
1: TURN ON YOUR JXD 7800 INTO RECOVERY MENU!
2: CONNECT USB TO JXD DEVICE & PC
3: RUN RKbatchtool ...SELECT THE UPDATE IMAGE, & YOU WILL NOTICE NO DEVICE CONNECTION....GO TO STEP4
4: ON THE JXD RECOVERY MENU....CHOOSE...... REBOOT SYSTEM..& THEN HOLD THE POWER & VOL +

So its all good  8)

My post has the username and password in it.
These are direct download links - my host will not be happy if I go through 2TB of bandwidth in a night. They'll simply remove the files and everyone looses.

Do not post user / pass - otherwise I'll simply change it again.
If you guys want direct download links this is going to be the way it is.

I've PM'd you the user/pass just in case.

Hi webclaw,

Great rom, thanks for your hard work.  I've installed it on my device (8gb version) and it works great apart from one problem. If I let it go to sleep or press the sleep button then it instantly powers off and I have to boot it up again as if the plug has been pulled. Any ideas what might cause this? It's the 6gb with sd swap that I'm using.

I look but i didn't find any file browser , so i download one from the market
 
and i have one error downloading files from nba jam , which i purchased, after the installation  . " download failed
error :101"
.

This problem, i first saw it in the stock jxd rom and it had been solved when i installed maetels rom . I don't know the reason it causes this error .

Can I ask a dumb question, I only recently updated my new s7800 a few days ago to the last webclaw.

Q1 is it worth installing this newer version?

Q2 as I've now installed lots if emus ect will updating wipe/ over write these.

I have 64GB sd which everything is installed on.

Im having exactly this same problem and havent flashed this ROM. Got my 7800 Tuesday and flashed several ROM including the official ones from JXD. It was working fine before and noticed it had JXD KIt Kat Android on it. Ive just put a post up with this problem hopefully someone can get it sorted quickly

Just flashing the 4gb swap ROM by Webclaw now. I noticed on the update process the Recovery system was version
4.2.51. dont know if this makes a difference?

I would advise anyone against flashing any ROMs at the moment if you just got your 7800 as it might have something new inside

Will update once booted up

Nope still the same, wont come out of sleep mode or it turns off not sure.  I noticed this time when I presses the power button to put it into standby there was a beep before it shut down.

Hopefully the clever Devs on here can help sort the problem out

Hey :),
In installed tan's firmware, but it was outdated so I installed this one.
But now my device has little things form tan's firmware, and little things from this one :s.
How do I completely remove the old firmware and use this one?

Ps. Does this one have the standard JXD launcher, because I really like that one :).

That's not possible.
During the programming process the device is erased.

Either your not understanding the ROM upgrade process or the ROM did not actual get upgraded.
Check your steps.

If you read the ROM descriptions will you would have seen that this ROM comes with Apex Launcher.
The new 1.5 JXD Stock Launcher causes crashes when you change resolution (PSX games).
The old 1.4 JXD Stock Launcher looses icons.

stock roms, jb roms, kitkat roms, all the same!

Sounds like a hardware failure more than an issue with a ROM.
Given you've tried all types of ROM's with the same result it's not likely a developer will be able to help / fix this issue for you. Send your device back for replacement.

Ok WebClaw ive put the 1.5 kitkat rom back on and its still not awakening from sleep. So if I had this on it originally and it was working fine and then flashed the JB 1.6khz official Rom from JXD web site this would have caused me my problems? Any idea what I could do to maybe completely  start again with a fresh install of a ROM to get it working right.

Jeez guys I noticed it every time the couple of last days. More and more is this powerbutton problem growing. I thinks it's a failure in production. So we need to make a big list of owners who have this problem and say towards JXD that this must be repaired/replaced and be recognised as an manufactor failure in the new batch.

Dont think my issue is a power button failure as it is the same when the screen goes off automically after 1 minute to sleep mode, it wont come back on unless I hold the power button in to reboot

Reading this I think it's the power button. I did an education in computer technology. So stop looking around for the firmware we need to start to make a list and hand it over to JXD

Exactly the same for me. I've tried using power button software from the play store to switch on using the volume rocker but that makes no difference either. Same if I switch off using a software button. Maybe something hardware wise has changed in newer units?

It can be a difference of fabrics (plastic) if this is softer then before it could be te damage bringer. Or the mechanics of the button is different or the machine needs to be repaired or looked after. It is a production problem... so we need to get the things straight and make a list of owners with the same problem with or without the real name will do. Nothing special but then we can claim it the right way.

Here are some facts:

The actual power button references (in the key-mapping code) are the exact same between JellyB and KitKat (this is an XML file which maps hardware functions to key defined interrupts).

The only real difference between JB and KitKat is the use of a new BootLoader (v2).

If your device worked fine on KitKat, then you downgraded to JB you need to revert back to the JB BootLoader (v1).

I've done some digging around and even with the bootloader change I agree with teunke7; the issue suggest a hardware problem may be playing it's part here.

I have 3 JXD S7800B devices and none of them have this power wake issue (and they've had all my ROM variations installed on them JB and KitKat).

Now, JXD is known to change the hardware in their devices without telling the public.

All my devices are made in 2013. I am wondering if select 2014 devices have this issue?

Finally an expert of android has the same opinion. I will make an topic about the wake problem and ask everyone who has this same issue/problem to reply in that topic so I can copy the thext in a mail towards JXD. I will claim a new device or cash back. Putting a quality proven sticker on the case... it shouldn't came pass the quality control.

Im going to flash back down to JB using the correct procedure including clearing the IDB and see what happens, I still think its something ive done wrong. If that works then can I just upgrade upto Kitkat just using RKBatch tool?

Just for the record WebClaw i flashed down correctly this time clearing the IDB and using correct bootloader and it made no difference so it seems a definite problem with the unit. I've flashed it back to 1.5 kitkat ROM and have sent it back to Amazon for a refund. I have a new one coming tomorrow so hopefully that one will be ok. It seems though that the new models being shipped out have the 1.5 kitkat ROM per installed and to be honest it seemed to work fine so maybe something has changed somewhere. I'll keep you posted on my new machine once i get it. Thanks for your help.

modern kombat 3 won't open.

On the other hand GTA San Andreas and Colin mc rae,  played  flaweslly and way better than the previous ROM that i had installed.  The difference is noticable .

@lenardlayug Hi,

 

I believe this might be the issue. If he cannot revert to stock, ask him if he can at least try to get the UI as standard as possibly before trying again. Any overlays, bars or resolution tweaks that he has installed may be interfering and causing that error.


 

Maybe that's the reason why some games couldn't open or have problems .

Thanks for the new rom!

Got it installed and everything seems to be running great, except:

I get this message when starting the device:

System UIDs are Inconsistent

UIDs on the system are inconsistent, you need to wipe your data partition or your device will be unstable.


To get rid of it, there's a bar that says, "I'm feeling lucky".

Any suggestions? It does this every startup.

Edit: I'm also having a hard time finding some icons, like gallery. Also, isn't it SuperSU that you need to grant permissions to apps? I can't get resolution changer to work. It doesn't ask for permission either.

Tested a movie and it looks great. Thanks again and keep up the good work!

Edit, Never mind. I figured it out. I hit upgrade instead of restore  ::)

And to say that maybe a stock firmware of a new device would be the holy grale to solve this powerbutton problem is also a no go. If you think about it, the new JXD are having the same hardware... so there should be the same software to program the power button.

You're assuming the hardware is identical, clearly it isn't otherwise there would be no problem putting custom firmware on! Anyway, this isn't the thread to be discussing it, there are threads dedicated to this problem.

Post by: Raven on July 13, 2014, 11:38:34 pm
Hey WebClaw, i already have some ideas, maybe can be useful for the final ROM development:

1. Is possible that you ask for add Nova Prime instead of Apex Launcher? I think Nova is better... with Apex, when you hide the status bar, the dock icons get a wrong position (or loses the center precision).

2. I think this one couldn't be possible, but... about HDMI, i wonder if there's a way to bring the final ROM a limit for 1.4Ghz performance, and unlock the maximum only when use HDMI Out. I hope this can be a better solution for a performance/battery life balance.

3. The status bar have 5 buttons (6 with the screenshot button, if screenshot settings would be enabled in the final ROM) and s7800 have 6 buttons for main functions. So... i think that would be awesome if you can improve the button links:

HOME: Main screen, select screen (the standard, is fine)
MAPPING: Obviously, without changes
BACK: Obviously, without changes
MENU: No change
START: Hide/Unhide the status bar
SELECT: View recent apps

I think that would be very helpful for use the main functions while using games or another app with fullscreen, keeping the status bar inside the ROM. However, there's more ideas for the other buttons:

D-Pad/Left Stick: Select App (again, the standard)
Right Stick: Move Screen left/right (since have 4 directions, could be fine for landscape/portrait)
Y Button: Enter Application Box
X Button: Take Screenshot
A Button: Select App (standard)
B Button: Select App (standard, but maybe delete app icon?)
L1/R1: Bright Control (very useful, i guess)
L2/R2: Volume control for notifications (would be nice)

4. Finally... i saw some comments about suddenly reboots. I think have the answer: It seems that hardware makes a reboot after some hours of using for first time, and happens only once... so, if flashing (no matter if using official or custom) will make a sudden reboot again. I'm sure about this, already comfirmed that with my T-Model (of 2013).

I really hope that you can use these ideas for any improvements. Keep the great job, dude!

I tried downloading the apk dungeon hunter from another source, but only worked well on the first run, then went back to having the same problem, what can I do?

Nomone acts differently with this rom on mine too but I don't know if its the same. I use the app and it works, but when I switch to homescreen the screen appears like its in portrait (as if the screen is squished in the middle?) but it works fine when I actually use PPSSPP (which is why I use the program).

It's a newer version of the firmware than I have seen available for download anywhere (S7800-01-V1.5-20140605.111625) so JXD have definitely changed something!

The only downside is that the back up I created is 8gb - is there anywhere that will let me upload a file that big for other people with the problem to download? Id the firmware of any use to you Webclaw to have a look at?

I have been informed that a new kernel to be out next week with HDMI fixed.

So will you release another firmware? I'm about to install  (6GB NAND + SD / NAND Swap).
Just one question: is there any chance to make a single working ROM and the updates packages?
I mean...I'm about to install webclaw-tw116-9.img. For any other updates, is there the chance to have update.img instead of the whole rom?
That would be perfect instead of installing everything again...

I don't believe anything JXD says. Another kernel will be released if it supports HDMI AND have 60Hz on emulators.

I've been told they are considering it if they can't make this next 0724 firmware work with all (board) found bugs work.

So all they need to do now is fix that right thumbstick and the device will be near perfect (except for QA, of course) or is that a hardware issue?

Sucks because Road Rash Jailbreak for PSX uses the right thumbstick for acceleration so you're not able to go fullspeed :(

Right stick is already fixed on 1.5 releases.
They need to fix vSync.
They need to fix 66Hz issues.
They need to fix HDMI out issues.
They need to fix power management / sleep issues.
They need to fix their stock JXD Launcher so it supports resizing.
In my opinion they also need to allow their kernels to run at 1.6GHz (as advertised on the product specs).
In my opinion the final should also be "factory" rooted as it was in 1.1.4 and prior releases.

I am asking myself... Is there a way to interlace the HDMI output at 30 Hz?

By this way, TV/monitor should deinterlace it, so 30 Hz would be like 60 if I am not wrong. I thing this would fix the emulator problems on HDMI, just if you want to investigate it WebClaw...

Post by: mitcher78 on July 17, 2014, 11:48:58 am
The problem here is that, if you output HDMI to an interlace image of fixed 30 Hz, then movies can have problems, or even PAL games.

The point should be to alwais HALVE the original HZ signal, and THEN interleace it. For example, a movie shold be capped to 12 Hz and interleaced (=24 Hz). PAL games to 25 Hz and interleaced (=50 Hz). NTSC games to 30 Hz and interlaced (=60 Hz). And so on...

If this is possible, this would fix HDMI issues.

EDIT: in any case, if the tablet outputs its own screen at constant 60 Hz (I think so), an interlaced output of constant 30 Hz for HDMI should have the same effect, so the issue would be fixed! I mean, I do not think that the tablet changes refresh rate depending on the content, so it is not necessary to do so for HDMI.

HDMI is simply bugged to 42FPS, this would need to be increased to 60FPS (as to match the LCD). It works this way w/GPD devices.

Exactly, no need for custom hz modes. GPD devices are that way, and my two TVboxes RK3188 work the same way, at true 60 hz with no problem in emulators at all. I suppose JXD will fix it, though perhaps it's good for you people if they don't fix and release kernel source instead

Sorry for the delay bud; I've got a billion PM's for usernames and passwords from those that cannot read.

I would stick with a 1.4GHz unit. The real advantage of a 1.6GHz processor is a very minute performance increase is PSP emulation. Other than that the GPU on the S7800B is a the cause of the slow-downs.

Besides, getting a true 1.6GHz unit is almost impossible (even the 16GB models are T chips now).

As for the firmware... That's a real issue. The best firmware to use is 116-9. I DO NOT like the new kernel - I simply created it to give those who have the "crappy" 2014 some other options. The main issue with the 1.5X kernels is the 66Hz bug. Face it, the S7800B is a emulation device. With 66Hz refresh the emualtors don't run right (if you use a 1.4X kernel you really notice a speed / playstyle improvement). I as well as others have sent requests to JXD to have this issue fixed, JXD doesn't even respond....

Shop around, see if anyone has a pre-Feb 2014 model (T series); but that's all your going to find.

As for your PM, I will reply back to you shortly, give me a few days.

oh no man, you're perfect! the messages were me freaking out when I just got the S7800B (arrived from the official site for like $127 on sale from 180, thought it was too good to pass up) and the 1.6 updates (I first used JXD's "official" and then yours) broke it so I was freaking out unsure what to do haha. then I saw your thread with the 1.4 and I read it where you stated all the kernel info etc so I guess I'm SOL :)

thanks for all the great work bud, I really appreciate it! I just wish it was as advertised, as my S5800 and 7300B runs PS1 faster for some reason, sadly. oh well! gonna wait for whenever you have another awesome update! THANKS AGAIN!!

To make the right analog stick work for 1.4GHz one, you need to use Tincore and then map it to any key (preferably unused one). I have to do that so that I can play Dead Trigger 2 with both right and left analog stick. Left for moving, right for viewing. 8)

EA suggests going back to stock firmware if you have installed launchers to prevent the "download failed error: 101".

I know the problem it has to do with the resolution and the game won't let you install the additional game files . It could work with specific resolution modes .

Can somoeone know how to solve it this matter . jxd's V1.5_20140524 rom could download the files , in some strange reason !!! Maybe if i could enable that resolution i could make it work.

So is there a ETA on the next version of Webclaws Firmware based on the upcomming 0724 Firmware (Its comming tomorrow, right) ?

And also why is the S7800B spoofed as Samsung Galaxy S4 or Nexus 7 (new).

You might find more apps with that build prob. But apps like walking dead download the gpu specific files. So you end up with incompatible files (S4 = Qualcomm Adreno 320 or Nexus 7 = Tegra 3).

Spoofing a S7800b as a Samsung Galaxy S3 would be the best as both share the Mali 400.

Am I right ?

At least the TV-Box Guys at Freaktab spoof the RK3188 devices as S3.

Apologize if this has been covered, I looked but didn't see anything specific to this firmware.  After successful flash, hitting the power button actually powers off the device.  I have to hold down the power button and let it boot back up each time.  I installed both the 6gb NAND and 6gb NAND + swap, it's doing it on both versions.  In fact, after boot, if i don't catch it in time it goes to sleep again which basically means a hard power down and I need to repeat the process.  I just received this 7800b last week so it's one of the later models.

When booted it works fine, until it goes to sleep or I hit the power button.  Any help would be appreciated!

the 2014 models of the 7800 suck and webclaw is working on version 3 to fix that, it's been covered a few times sitewide, i was in your shoes a few weeks ago.

just wait for version 3 of his rom, as the 7800 2014 model can only do 1.4 quad at the moment until he releases a good rom :P

Apologize if this has been covered, I looked but didn't see anything specific to this firmware.  After successful flash, hitting the power button actually powers off the device.  I have to hold down the power button and let it boot back up each time.  I installed both the 6gb NAND and 6gb NAND + swap, it's doing it on both versions.  In fact, after boot, if i don't catch it in time it goes to sleep again which basically means a hard power down and I need to repeat the process.  I just received this 7800b last week so it's one of the later models.

When booted it works fine, until it goes to sleep or I hit the power button.  Any help would be appreciated!

the 2014 models of the 7800 suck and webclaw is working on version 3 to fix that, it's been covered a few times sitewide, i was in your shoes a few weeks ago.

just wait for version 3 of his rom, as the 7800 2014 model can only do 1.4 quad at the moment until he releases a good rom :P

Ok thanks, I did see some mention of the latest versions sucking, but wasn't sure what the "suck" was specifically.  Guess now I know. 

Curious, what have you done in the meantime?  Did you Tans rom or back-rev to the stock firmware?  Or do you just deal with the power down issues?

he released a "fix" that makes it 1.4ghz temporarily, http://boards.dingoonity.org/jxd-devices/power-button-reboot-issues-here%27s-a-new-kernel-to-fix/

use that, he will release the better rom (in the rom 3 thread) soon :)

Thanks, that worked great.  Power button no longer shuts off the device!

So this might be a dumb question but I'll ask anyway: will his v3 rom wipe the device?  should i bother spending the time to tweak this w/ 116-7 or wait until new version?

no worries! yeah webclaw is the hero of the people for the s7800B device and all it's problems, and JXD released a spam assassin here (pretty girl) who just links to their broken roms (I used the official ones and it didnt work right).

i think it wipes it sadly, so back up your info/etc, but once it's out it should make it a lot faster :D

and no problem, I was in your shoes just recently so I know how frustrating it is to get a device with lower then advertised specs.

Hi,
Following the example of many S7800B users here, in order to get a better, more performing device, I would like to get rid of the official fw setup and install the custom frmware released by webclaw.
I've already downloaded the executable file and i'd be ready to rumble.. but there could be an issue.
My JXD has the last official fw installed (S7800-01-V1.5-20140605.111625) and it's 1.4 ghz (verified by Antutu).
Kernel is 3.0.36+
My question is: should I firstly upgrade my device to 1.6 ghz through the official upgrade on jxd site and then install the custom fw? Or can I install directly rhe custom fw without any clock upgrading?
Or maybe is it possible to get the preliminary upgrade in other ways rather than utilizing the JXD official stuff?

Thank you to anyone can answer.

There is no need to upgrade it to 1.6Ghz official firmware before installing webclaw's ROM. You can follow the instructions on the first post to directly install the custom ROM. Webclaw's ROM will take care of settings the CPU frequency to 1.6ghz

After reading this forum for literally weeks, I bought at S7800B and really like it.  Now for the noob bit :/.  I am trying to get this ROM onto my device however once I get to step 5...

Installation:
1. Download Rockchip Batch Tool 1.7: http://www.cloudstor.es/file/m1_OTM0OA/
2. Connect your S7800B to your computer via USB 2.0 (avoid USB 3.0 ports).
3. Power up your device and run the file RKBatchTool.exe (requires administrator) on your computer.
4. You'll note the tool shows a pink color indicating the status (device is connected).
5. Click the "Switch" button and your device will reboot. Install drivers via Device Manager.
6. Press the "Reset" button your device, wait for it to boot up.
7. Again, click the "Switch" button, this time the area above will turn green - programming mode ready (if it doesn't you didn't install the driver).
8. Select the desired flash image file (.img) and press "Restore".


The switch button does not reset my device it just turns it off...I have been trying for an hour and have finally given in and raised my hand..

I AM A NOOB! Help... please.

It appears to turned off but it "switches" to programming mode. At this point, your PC will detect it as a new device and try to install the drivers. You need to install the drivers for the device again (programming mode). Use the drivers included with the rockchip batch tool.

After the driver installation is done, proceed to step 6.

It's been a while since I bought my s7800(t model) and I still use it, love the thing. I've been using your firmware since I bought it and I never had issues so thanks man and keep it up.

I do have a question though, which nand would you recommend? I always use the 6GB nand swap version because I like to have the most space plus I use a 32GB so.. yeah

BUT is there any downside to using 6gb? would the system perform better with 2gb or does it not matter?

Hi, I have been using Webclaw rom for a couple of days and I am so far impressed by the stability and performance achieved. However, I would like to increase battery life a little more. Maybe it is that the console is still in the first charging cycles, but I am not very happy with 3 hours.

I am using No Frills at 1.2 Conservative. I switch off wifi as much as I can and I don't have live wallpapers or stupid widgets (only power control).

What else do you do?

make sure your hdmi connection is fully seated into the unit.

the 7800 has a deep socket.

When I try to download the ROM using the multiupload URL, the site forces me to download some iLividSetup BS to download the ROM (there is no direct ROM download). Is that what I should expect ? Is there a direct link to this ROM somewhere too ? I'd rather not download an executable for the machine to download a ROM if it can be avoided!

Hi zerog17.

As far as I know, there's no way to update from 116-7 to 116-9.
Could you make me a favour?

You have the 116-9 webclaw SPECIAL ROM, right?

Could you tell me what kernel version, user@host, compilation date and number of compilation shows? I'm not sure if it's the same rom it's installed in my device.

Thanks in advance.

Far as I know they're all going to come up the same because the differences are all patches.
Since JXD has not released source the firmwares posted for the 7800 so far are all based off the original kernel.

You'll have to identify them by their hash like md5/sha1

I did not know that there was a 116-9 webclaw SPECIAL ROM.  If you could provide the link to download, so I can test the 2014 jxd power/sleep issue. 

I tried all the 116-9 webclaw versions available, but the issue still remains.

Joe, my doubt is I'm not sure if the flashing process was correct.

How can I calculate the md5 from a installed rom? did you mean the md5 of the original custom firmware .img?
Is there any other way to be sure what rom is in my device?

I used the RKBatchTool to flash the firmware.  I flashed all avaivalbe 116-9 roms, they booted up just fine, however, the power button/sleep issue still remains.  I believe its cause I bought this unit sometime in August of this year (2014), and I know that the new units in mid 2014 have the power/sleep issue any units sold prior do not have this issue.

I guess not =/ Anyway, I've already discovered that fixing vsync without kernel sources is impossible. Why don't we try forcing jxd to release the sources? How many people are not satisfied with the issues that latest consoles have? If we have enough customers that will write reviews for 7800 describing all the issues and email complaints to jxd, then maybe they will release the source eventually.

Or try changing governor to conservative and scheduler noop/deadline using SetCPU.

Hi guys,

Sorry about this question if it's already been asked/covered, if so could you point me in right direction.

I just tried to flash the 6GB nand rom and accidentally clicked the upgrade button instead of restore like the instructions say to do.   It rebooted into a recovery mode and started to format data/cache and then rebooted and just stays at a JXD logo.

Does anybody know what I need to do to resolve issue or restore back?

TIA for any help,   wish I had taken time and done a bit more research first :(


Managed to solve by going into bootloader mode with Volume up and reset button  :)

This stock official 1.5 firmware from for JXD,  JXD s7800b with power button/sleep issue fix for 2014 JXD s7800b units.
However there is no root access.


Click the link below to download rom, use rkbatch tool to restore.

Install this rom http://boards.dingoonity.org/jxd-devices/power-button-reboot-issues-here%27s-a-new-kernel-to-fix/ (http://boards.dingoonity.org/jxd-devices/power-button-reboot-issues-here%27s-a-new-kernel-to-fix/) or the stock kernel from the latest jxd firmware.

How do you flash kernel only from the webclaw special rom or stock?

There is a CM11 rom I would like to try but curious how to flash the kernel from working rom as CM11 also has the power button issue  :(

I used the RKBatchTool to flash the firmware.  I flashed all avaivalbe 116-9 roms, they booted up just fine, however, the power button/sleep issue still remains.  I believe its cause I bought this unit sometime in August of this year (2014), and I know that the new units in mid 2014 have the power/sleep issue any units sold prior do not have this issue.

hi zerog17,
you can try this: http://boards.dingoonity.org/jxd-devices/%28kernel-only%29-powersleep-fix-for-jxd-s7800-%28rk3188-t%29/

i must do the same procedure everytime when i upgrade a firmware (all versions until now), and the deep/sleep problem gets fixed.
My unit its from august of this year: S7800b-8gb

hi, Is there any other way to download the firmware beside through kinderwater.info one? for some unknown reason (for me at least) I can't enter the website when I click the link or copy paste the link to my browser. it keeps send me an error 404. after I tinkered my DNS settings, I finally managed to reach the website only to find a blank page with a message "This server: lhost1.icubedev.net [204.244.109.232] is online.". I don't really understand and googling it doesn't really help. I don't see anyone having the same problem as I do in here either.

I just bought my 7800 recently and upgrade it to stock 1.5 firmware. and I'm quite annoyed with the power/sleep issues. tried the kernel that was shared by Grim (http://boards.dingoonity.org/jxd-devices/(kernel-only)-powersleep-fix-for-jxd-s7800-(rk3188-t)/msg114976/#msg114976) on his thread but it doesn't work. I though maybe it's because the stock firmware so I want to tried using the webclaw firmware yet I'm stuck at the link. (or maybe the firmware/kernel doesn't flashed correctly? I used the Rkbatch and finless Rom flash and it says it was successful, I'm not sure, is there any way to check what firmware and kernel I used?).

also I noticed that the battery indicator doesn't really accurate, does the firmware have a fix on that? what's the difference between (2gb NAND), (4gb NAND), etc? 

Edit: I change to CM11 firmware and use the kernel. solves my powersleep issues. still not sure about the battery indicator though. looking forward for the version 3 webclaw and hopefully I can download it.

@aprikh1 and @alex_see,
Swapping NAND and Real SD Card is very easy in S7800B, you just need to edit /etc/vold.fstab (as root with any file explore, I used ES File Explorer), look for the two lines uncommented (without # at the beginning) and where it says /mnt/sdcard replace it by /mnt/external_sd and make the contrary on the next line. That's all. You can also search in this forum with the keywords editting vold.fstab or just vold.fstab.

@ruthan, webclaw never has published a 16GB ROM.
16GB model is pretty new and there's no any 16GB published in this forum for this device yet. If someone said the opposite, he's wrong. As additional information, JXD neither has published its 16GB ROM, at least it's not here: http://jxd.hk/download.asp?selectclassid=020001

@jamesensor, as ruthan said, webclaw published some kernels (just the kernels), you can read more about that here: http://boards.dingoonity.org/jxd-devices/the-fixed-stock-kernels/

But ... if you read all the thread, you will noticed that webclaw's fixed kernels have some things like vsync 66Hz not correctly patched.
However, in my opinion user Lujji made a good job compiling a new kernel with vsync patched, some audio noise fixed and compatible with T-models. You can download it from here, http://yaa.im/2fb9afbec58f009f

If you're interested in flashing just the kernel, I recommend to follow GRIM's instructions:
http://boards.dingoonity.org/jxd-devices/the-fixed-stock-kernels/msg115267/#msg115267

As far as I know, Lujji's and webclaw's fixe kernel is "compatible" with all ROMS based on Jelly Bean 4.2.2 ROMS, for example Webclaw's rom. The device will turn on and it will work, there's no reason to be any problem, but nobody can assure you not to detect any unexpected issue, because as webclaw said, in his roms there are some hackjobs which affect kernel because his roms and most of S7800B include Kernel from Stock Rom, not a new kernel compiled from sources.


Regards.

Sorry, but i think that you are wrong. I have at home maybe at least 4 months - 16 GB variant and bough it throught dinodirect china eshop and there was combox selection between 8 an 16 gb variant.

  Webclaw wrote that he has 16 GB too and i pretty sure that he also wrote about 12 GB version of firmware, i at once filtered all his posts here. My device is now at dead end, because primary 1 GB storage is full and i can move any other app to external or sdcard, because those apps arent moveable. 12 GB internal storage would be ideal, maybe someone is simply able to edit 2g,4g,6g.. version to adjust to 12 gb.

  Webclaw said in other threads that 8GB and 16GB version are identical devices, so firmware working for both.

Does anyone have any opinions on what ROM to install on my 7800 non T model?  Just got it back from repair and has been returned with factory settings.  I was running Tan's rom on 1.6 and was fairly happy with the stability but was waiting for Webclaw's new installment before doing anything else.  Want to get my device back up and running and finally decided on Web's (6GB NAND + SD / NAND Swap) but as the link is dead I am at stalemate.

Go back to Tan's rom and wait it out? Are people happy with the Prometheum Rom?

  Well, if i understant what it realy means, result is that i could use 6gb no swap firmware and i would have 6 gb internal memory + 10 gb sdcard.
  I have lots of but experiences with such small internal memory and aplication to sdcard movement, out of storage etc.., i would like to have 12 GB of internal memory, good enought even for installation game like Xcom (2,5 GB).

Hi, I am using Luiji 2GBs rom with the power fix incorporated, and I am desperate for more space for apps.

I was thinking editing the /etc/vold.fstab, but I would still have only 2GB for system, and that is too little. So, after searching 100 posts I am still uncertain. I want to play Icewind Dale, Banner Saga, Asphalt 8, Bard Tale and Oddworld; but I can only have one of those at the same time... frustrating to say the least...

Has anybody published a Webclaw V2 6GB rom with NAND-swap and the power/sleep fix included? That is the everything I want from a ROM, works nice and does not introduce additional issues; but I don`t want to toy with kernels, partitions, reflashing, etc... Because I know I will brick it somehow.

Alternatively I would try another rom with all these provided it is without major issues (not KitKat as I play mostly emulators).

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Webclaw V2, 6GB + NAND Wow, it is the first time a file I want seems to have actually disappeared from the internet. Entirely. Vanished in thin air.

I keep asking the same question and no one seems to want to help!  Great community we have here.

I downloaded the Rockchip Batch tool v1.7

plug in my S7800

and rockchip batch tool can't see it

I then installed the drivers that came with Rockchip Batch tool and it still can't see my device

I then ensured I as running Rockchip Batch tool as a Admin ( I am) and it still can't see my device

If I click on the S7800 and put it in USB mode I can see all the files but RockChip still doesn't see it

I tried USB Debugging on the device and still nothing

It would be super nice if someone would offer a little advice

Please write in the first post that the mod firmw of this topic will give the standby issue and link also the solution that is uploading only the kernel, i spent a lot of time to fix the problem when i thought that with this modded fw i was going to have a better console and not a bug that i didnt have with my original fw.

I keep asking the same question and no one seems to want to help!  Great community we have here.

I downloaded the Rockchip Batch tool v1.7

plug in my S7800

and rockchip batch tool can't see it

I then installed the drivers that came with Rockchip Batch tool and it still can't see my device

I then ensured I as running Rockchip Batch tool as a Admin ( I am) and it still can't see my device

If I click on the S7800 and put it in USB mode I can see all the files but RockChip still doesn't see it

I tried USB Debugging on the device and still nothing

It would be super nice if someone would offer a little advice

Can windows see the device in the device tree when it's plugged in?
If yes then try another copy of batch tool.

If no then try a different usb port, preferably direct no hubs in between no extension cords.

My JXD started to uninstall programs every time I power it off. Tomorrow was one game, today was another game. Somebody if this is related to applying this rom on the device?

Yes I'm struggling to find live links to this too.

Has this community died? Such a shame if it has as I suspect a load of us got one of these devices for xmas. I'm currently using Supercharged but I have the power button issue.

Your Caanoo still work? How long have you had it? I think mine is like 3 years old, and it still works fine. Directional slider nub thing is a little "crunchy" but still registers.

Yes a little :P.  Select the Uploaded.net link.  Then wait for the Download button, Then select the free service, wait for the other download link and bam, you have your file.  I wouldn't call the site dodgy, just over advertised and very user unfriendly :).  Now go get your file and go and enjoy sorting your JXD out :).

Yeah my Caanoo still works perfectly, to be honest its almost like new still.  The Caanoo's build quality is much better than most Korean\ Chinese handhelds and is leagues above the Pandora for build but for overall greatness the Pandora is king and its also super rare so a nice one to own :).

The reason people keep saying they can't find the links is all of the links posted by WebClaw on page 1 are dead.

Interesting, but no offence meant to anyone ;).

Maybe someone wants to update the front page links to the working ones, I think I speak for 99% of the forum on this.  Such a shame when people put in the hard work but then fail to do the easy maintenance.

Does it work on JXD S7800 16 GB? I couldn't find an answer for that. What will happen if I flash the 6 gb version? Will I get a 6 GB of nand and 10 GB sd, a 6 gb nand, 2 gb sd and an unusable 8 GB raw partition, or even worse - brick the device?

From what I read it doesn't matter what GB you have but 16gb ones don't over clock well some don't like 1.6 either and need to be clocked to 1.4.

If you can find a DL to the rom it will work on the 16GB version. You hit it on the nose when you said "6 GB of nand and 10 GB sd". That is what will happen.

However, with an absence of live links this info is not going to matter much unless we can try it out. I hope WebClaw comes back...

Finding it is not a problem... here for example http://www.touch-4u.fr/drivers/webclaw-tw116-9-VSYNC(6GB).zip

I'm still hesitating though... People are prising Luiji's rom as well, but it's based on KitKat. In my experience with Android, everything is getting worse with newer versions. For example my Galaxy Note tablet (from JB to KK) or my Galaxy S5 phone... the LP upgrade is horrible - looks ugly, the phone is constantly freezing, battery is getting hot, and battery life is half of what it used to be.  >:(

BTW my JXD works perfectly, no power button issues, sleep of death, etc.... so I don't like to mess it up, but my hands are itching to put a new firmware for bigger nand and some overclocking. ::)

This might be a very stupid question, but I have a JXD S7800b, the only problem is that I have no idea if it will work on my 1.4GHz / 2GB RAM / 15-ish GB Storage version of the table. Has anyone tested it out on the 1.4GHz model?

While restoring, I got a "Wait for Loader Fail" message and now my device is bricked--the Batch Tool can't recognize it at all. Is there any hope?

Try to flash it again with lujji's ROM. Anyway if you follow the link in my signature there's a link to a Google drive. Try also to download and install Riley' ROM. There's a very detailed guide that can help.
Try also a reset...

There's also a guide to short some pins on the NAND. I don't remember where, if it's here or in another forum but look for it.

I can't really try any other ROM as the device is no longer recognized by the Rockchip Batch Tool; nor will it reset. I suppose monkeying around with the interior might be my only recourse.
Thanks!

The thing seems well and truly bricked, as none of the steps in Riley's ROM cause the device to be recognized by either the device manager nor any flash programs. I appear to be out of luck.
