By JXD never. Lastest rockchip SDK for RK3188 is Kitkat. There are several roms for other RK3188 with Lollipop, but re-using a kitkat kernel and kitkat libraries so not exactly a Lollipop release, so less Android 6.0

That sucks... I'm no expert but I feel the firmware is taking away from the device's power :/ Since it's all tied back to the rockchip SDK, I'm assuming that even a bare-bone stock android firmware won't work on it? From what I'm understanding, you need a BIOS made for the actual physical components? I was seriously disappointed when my LG G3 did 3x better in Antutu benchmarks than my JXD S7800b...

Surprisingly, i got a very nice chat response today. And supporter told me that there's a tiny possibility to update all JXD smart consoles in a near future. Surely will be updates for Singularity first (since is their best one and its so much easier) and maybe, just maybe a few last updates for s7800/s5800.

That said, i'm happy with my 3-years old s7800 with a pure RK3188 (not that weird T model). Some buttons won't work anymore, left stick is shattered and there's a button-related touchscreen weird behavior (which i take under control using Tincore) but i can still using it for some Android games. It's a warrior, i think it last enought for me.

A bios is not needed. But a kernel. Kernel is released so anyome.id free to compile. Anyhow, not surprise your lg3 is 3x faster. The rk3188 is a very outdated chipset. Mainly the mali400 gpu is pretty weak nowadays. The jxd firmware is quite stock, and I remember theee is some cyanigenmod for s7800. But a New firmware is not going to make your device to runs much faster. As I dsy,, rk3188 is quite weak
