[ROM DOWNLOAD] CX919 Quad Core TV Sticks – Android 4.2.2 – Finless ROM 1.5 /rooted/video fix

Here is the newest and best custom rom for CX-919 quad core tv sticks right now. Thanks to Bob Finless again, you are the man!

Firmware Download LINK


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

2) I give you APP space size choices!
There are also 2gb, 4gb and 6gb parameter file 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) 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!

4) All google required APPs updated to the latest version as of this ROM build.
This includes the play store and other required Google APPs.

5) I 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. I also enabled Accessibility settings.

6) 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.

7) 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.
Your device will show up in Google play as Samsung device not a CX-919 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 CX-919.

8) Kernel choices including all 6 frame skipping FIX kernels! These work well!
Special thanks to Freaktab user Sam321 and Hoabycsr!
I also give you the stock latest kernels but these still have the frame skipping issue!
They are supplied for people that want to use them anyway.
Stock 720
Stock 1080
Sam321 No Overclock 720 frame skip fix
Sam321 No Overclock 1080 frame skip fix
Hoabycsr No Overclock (400mhz) 720 frame skip fix
Hoabycsr No Overclock (400mhz) 1080 frame skip fix
Hoabycsr Overclocked (800mhz) 720 frame skip fix
Hoabycsr Overclocked (800mhz) 1080 frame skip fix
I set the flash tool to use Sam321 No Overclock 720 kernel.

9) I also supply the needed 720 and 1080 boot.img’s. By default the flash tool is set to boot720.img

10) New power button on status bar functionality!
If you click the power button on the status bar once, it puts the CX-919 to sleep mode. Moving the mouse wakes it up.
If you HOLD the mouse button down on the power button you will get a pop up dialog with 3 buttons:
Sleep, power off, reboot.
Sleep – This works like above.
Power off – This works but note the LED is still on as there is still power applied.

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

  1. Tested and it seems so far everything works for me. Xbmc works fine. But noticed antutu scores are now only 14000 no longer in the 16000.

  2. Sliky smooth running. But with that said, is anyone having issues with Bluetooth? I can pair a device, but it will not connect.

    Also, now have working ethernet and 802.11 w/ WAP.

  3. How do I up date the room? is it like the firmware update?

  4. Hi, are USB-Cameras suported like Logitexch C310 on this ROM?

  5. Nope, it doesn´t work and firefoxbrowser either with on wifi. But despite that everything is very fast and nice, thank you bob your the man!

    The update instruction is also in the download file, please download and check.

    we only have logitech c170 here, and it can work, so you can try it by yourself, and please report back.

  8. Works like a charm BUT and for such a little device it’s a pretty big but if you use Bluetooth devices like a keyboard:

    I tried pairing a BT Keyboard and my BT Logitech adapter that connects to my audio system so that that will play the devices sound over my Logitech Z-906 speakers. It simply DOES NOT work, it tries to connect but fails. I can change the time it can be seen by other devices, the devices name but it seems to reset BT by turning BT off and on again when I try to pair to any device so the devices resets to default like it’s name to rk30sdk and the visability time to other devices.

    Ethernet works fine, WiFi I haven’t tried.

    I changed:
    APP storage: 4GB
    Kernel: kernel_simon1080.img – Sam321 No Overclock 1080 frame skip fix
    Boot image: Boot1080.img

    Going to try some other Kernel hoping this will give me a fix.

  9. Hi firends, NO C 310 supported. What I would like to see in next ROM is a multiwindow feature like it is released on CHUWI V88 which has the same specs as the CX 919. Please Finless hear my peayers!!!!

  10. Great job! I followed your instructions from the readme first.txt.First erase Nand. That worked ok. Than flash rom. Error. No found rkandroid rock usb. I can unplug it, plug it in again and not found. Congratulations, I just bricked it.

  11. Does anyone know if this ROM supports portrait mode? The stock ROM does not, even with an installed screen rotation utility. I want to force portrait mode for my particular needs.

  12. It is a lot faster than the stock rom. I am having issues with bluetooth as well. I notice that when I have my keyboard connected, I see bluetooth disable, and re-enable in the settings. It seems pretty constant with the turning off and back on, but only when there is something connected via bluetooth

  13. When I started the Finless ROM Flash Tool the first 2 steps went well. But When I pressed the Flash ROM buttom it stopped in line 15(Status Window):
    INFO: Checking download data. Size(481746)K.Checked(44274)K
    ERROR: Download file failed
    ERROR: Run failed

    I tryed the whole procedure again but it stopped in the same line. Only the number(44274) was a bit different.
    I see the new screen on the CX919 and I tryed some of the apps. They seems to work well.
    What can I do to be sure?

  14. Hello and thanks,
    I Tried to install this rom but have trouble with “google play”
    after i open it the system crashes.
