  1. Hello.
    Thank you for your contributions to the KR-42 or CS918.
    I was able to perform the root.

    My question is:

    I bought DroidMote server for the box (CS918 on Playstore)
    If I CustomROM the On Game, then I will not get over the gates play the full version, as the unit asl Samsung Galaxy was spoofed?

    You can get the custom Rom with the original device name?

    Is possible that the controller button settings RKRemoteControl (Smartphone) store (profiles)?
    The change of the buttons to change game is pretty annoying.

    Please excuse my bad English.

    Thank you for your help LG

  2. Thanks for second custom rom! Of course the main thing people are waiting is a 1080p kernel support. But all these small thing you implemented are important also!
