If you are still worry about the video problem in rk3188 quad core tv box, you can take it easy now. The developer on Freaktab already found this problem, and they are working hard to make custom rom for the popular models. (most of the models is coming from Geekbuying 🙂
So today, our friends Leolas bring us the custom rom for iMito QX1, so if you have the imito qx1 in your hand, prepare to flash this custom rom
What have this rom?
-Storage size for apps Increased to 2Gb.
-Custom kernel with frame skipping issue solved.
-Rooted with SuperSU and the last busybox installed.
-After the first boot, it will install cwm recovery automatically. So you can make nandroid backups and install future updates, kernels or other roms in this easy way. This rom will be upgraded by cwm, so no need to connect to PC the stick to upgrade to future versions, I will make cwm flashable files for Bob Finless roms too, so when he release his rom you will can install it by cwm too.
How to install it?
There is 2 ways:
1.If you have Leolas previous rom installed:
You have cwm installed, so only download this zip:http://cloud.freak-tab.de/public.php…735d4b9a1ca0f8
-Use the reboot app to enter cwm recovery.
-Make a backup of your current rom. (make a backup before flash a update is allways a good idea, but you can omit this step)
-Select wipe cache partition.
-Select advanced and then wipe dalvick cache
-Select install zip from sdcard.
-Select choose zip from sdcard or Select choose zip from external sd (if you have the zip in the external sdcard)
-Navigate to the folder where you download the zip.
-Install it. The process will last some minutes, so please be patient and don´t turn off the stick until the upgrade is complete.
-Using this way you will preserve your apps installed and your settings (If you feel the system launch FC or something dont work in a right way, then you must go to cwm recovery again and select wipe data/factory reset and you will lose your apps and settings installed, but usually erase data is not necessary)

You need a windows machine.
-Power off the stick completely.
-Press the reset button and while is pressed connect the microusb to the OTG port, dont release the reset button until windows detect your stick.
-Install the proper driver for your OS if you dont have them installed yet. You can obtain them from:http://cloud.freak-tab.de/public.php…fb85f0987122db
-Follow the steps in the picture. Be sure that you are in loader mode: Found RKAndroid Loader Rock Usb.
1.-Select the files to be flashed the are in the folder leolas-rom-QX1.
2.-Select the squares in the left like in the screenshoot.
3.-Click Erase IDB.
When the process finalize, dont unplug the stick yet, wait 5 minutes, the device will reboot in the stock recovery and install the cwm recovery. Very important to wait some minutes, if not the device will not work properly, and bootloops or blank screen can happend.
Leolas also offer the following kernels for you, if you need to try 1080p firmware, just flash the kernel you need.
The kernel included are:
– 720p-basic.img kernel with frame skipping fix,720p and at stock speed.
– 1080p-basic.img kernel with frame skiping fix, 1080p and stock clock speed.
– 720p-cpu1800ram1300.img&1080p -cpu1800ram1300.img kernel with frame skipping fix, cpu oc 1800 and ram oc 1300, it is a little overclocked, in my test they are safe and stable.
– 720p-cpu1896ram1500gpu798.img&1080p-cpu1896ram1500gpu798.img this kernels have a moderate overclock, I test them and works very well for me, but no all devices can overclock the same. I suggest improved heat dissipation to use this kernel.
