Based on stock Android 4.4.4 (KitKat) firmware.
Current version: 1.4 [24/02/2015]Disclaimer:
if you need stock mapper functionality, then this firmware is not for you - consider this rom
by pogodancer instead.Features:? Custom kernel ported to KK and built completely from scratch? Max. CPU frequency at 1.6GHz (with optional overclock)? Improved 'interactive' governor - less lag? Improved battery indication? Fixed loud click when headphones attached? Updated Wi-Fi drivers (v. 3.50.WFD)? CIFS and UTF-8 support? App partition from 2GB up to 12GB? Root (SuperSU)? Play Market compatibility (spoofed as GT-I9300)? Minimum preinstalled contentOther features:? Refresh rate is 60Hz (lcd driver from my JB kernel)? Power button works? Headphones work? Right stick range is correct? HDMI: reported to be at 40fpsInstallation:
1. Open RKBatch Tool and connect usb cable.
2. Hit 'Switch' after pink icon lights up. Install drivers if needed
3. Hit 'Restore' after green icon lights up and wait for flashing to complete
On the first boot SuperSU will prompt you to update binaries - choose 'Normal'. No internet connection required
To install updates put the package in 'quickflasher' folder on the internal sd, open Quickflasher, set device to 'Rockchip Universal' and select the package you wish to install.
Some newer devices might have problems at 1.6GHz. If you experience any stability issues then lower the frequency in No-Frills and check 'set on boot'.Overclock:
This rom comes bundled with 2 kernels: default and overclocked (1.7GHz for T-models and 1.8GHz for non-T) with reduced CPU and GPU power consumption. Use Quickflasher to install the kernel.
Use No-frills to adjust frequency. I do not recommend clocking CPU higher than 1.6GHz. Overclocked kernel might not run stable on your device.Do this at your own risk!Recommendations:?
To make installation process easier stock recovery was used. I suggest installing CWM Recovery from CrewRK
To launch Tincore when 'mapper' button is pressed go to Settings, select 'Open mapper on sequence', type in 'F12 1' and save. 'Invert X' and 'Invert Y' must be enabled in 'devices: touchscreen' for proper operation.
Also disable on-screen controls if you wish.?
Set CPU governor to interactive
and scheduler to deadline
If you want to enable navigation bar then uncomment the line qemu.hw.mainkeys=0
at the end of build.prop and restart. Further adjustments can be done with Xposed framework.Preinstalled content:
