Tronsmart MK908 Quad Core TV Stick Android 4.2 Official Finless Custom Rom 1.5

This ROM is made by great Bob Finless, a good friends of Geekbuying, and this rom is base on the official Android 4.2 rom for Tronsmart MK908 which i release yesterday.

Here is the changelog:

1) Rooted and new SU and Superuser applied that supports Android 4.2.2

2) Stock ROM was only 2 Gig of APP space.
BUT you also have parameter file options!
There are also 1gb, 2gb, 4gb and 6gb options.
Read below for how to change that in the flash tool.
Realize if you use this 6gb option, internal SDcard will only have about 600 megs of free space!

3) Debloated of junk APPs and Google Apps you can get from Google Play.
I also updated Google Play to the latest version along with standard APPs.

4) As always, full init.d support! If you do not know what that is… ignore it. For geeks that want to use it. It is there!

5) I re-enabled location services. This is now in the settings menu.
Tested and working with all APPs that use it.
Remember to turn off GPS as we have no GPS.

6) I also re-enabled accessibility options in settings.

7) Gameloft fix. This fixes Gameloft games from crashing to the desktop.
Many of them do not run and crash to the desktop. This is due to a license check based on the device.
Special thanks to Christian Troy for inventing this fix. I modded it for this ROM.

8) Build.prop edit to open up the Google Play store to APPs that normally say “not compatible”.
I am spoofing a Samsung device that will show almost any APP as compatible.
Yuor device will show up in google play as Samsung device nopt a MK908 or RKSDK! Understand this please.
I also left the original build.prop in the ROM called build.orig.
If you want to go back, just use ES FIle Explorer or a root file explorer and rename build.prop to build.old
Then rename build.orig to build.prop.
Go into settings, apps, all and go into the Google Play app. Clear the cache and data.
Reboot! You should be back to showing up as a MK908.

9) RK Mirroring is enabled as always.
Also new to Android 4.2.2 is Wifi display.
If you have another 4.2.2 phone or tablet you can share your devices screen on your TV.

10) Remote Control using RK Remote APP is now fully supported!
In the ROM kit is a RKRemoteControl.apk.
NOTE: This is a NEW version and will not cause your TV stick to crash.
So if you have already installed RKRemote before you need to un-install it and re-install this version!!!!
You install this on your phone or tablet and now it can remotely control your TV player!
Just put the APK on sdcard or something and install it on your Android phone, tablet, etc.
ENJOY this one! I had a HARD TIME getting it to work!

11) I added a reboot APP that will allow optional reboot options like reboot to bootloader (flash mode).

12) I have adjusted the mouse pointer size by request!
Stock rom was 55×55. The normal mouse pointer is 22×28 which is too small for many.
I made a 35×35 mouse pointer.
If you want to change that more discuss online and I will tell you how to do it.

13) 1080P Kernel if you want it! Tronsmart also released a 1080 kernel.
I have unpacked it from boot and made it a choice in this ROM package.
See instructions IN THE README for how to choose the correct boot.img and kernel.img
720P boot and kernel is the default setup in my flash tool.

For more information ALWAYS read the README in the ROM kit!

  1. Will there a ROM with this level for Tronsmart T428 ?

    Thx for all !

  2. It’s the end of May. Do you have The New Bulk of MK908 ?

  3. Avatar photo

    Yes, Tronsmart is working hard to make a better rom for Tronsmart T428.

  4. Thanks for this release! Everything seems to be working pretty well, although I get some screenflicker in both MXPlayer/BSplayer when watching video, might have to do with my USB-to-Ethernet dongle.

    It would be nice to have the options of having the original boot screen and pointer perhaps, the current ones are a bit flashy IMHO…

  5. The Rom is pretty good. I have noticed that the 1080p is dim on display.
    I also compared with a HD TV picture.

  6. Link is down. Haven’t found any other link to this build.

  7. connected on internet :

    Keep having on playstore “connexion expired. retry”

    empty cache, date, hour ok

  8. I installed this Rom with the 4gb & 1080 options. Everything works fine except when I use the 1080 option my Internet speed goes from 25,000 kbps to 2,500 kbps. When I changed the resolution to 720 the Internet speed returns to 25,000 kbps.
