Our developer just help to finish a new custom rom base on the lastest stock firmware, here we go:
THIS IS A FULL ROM!
It is only for the Tronsmart S89 series! Flashing this on another box MAY brick you! You have been warned!
Why do I say this? Because this is a full ROM and flashes bootloader, recovery, etc! Thus it is not generic in any way. I will work on a generic ROM next.
This was made from the 101K4.
This is a “common” ROM for both the S89 Standard and the S89 Elite. If you have the Elite you will need to also flash the elite wifi patch.
Features and release notes for my 1.4 ROM:
1) Properly rooted using SuperSU. What does properly mean?
Android 4.4.2 requires SU to be running as a daemon now. There are many ways to run this as a daemon.
Most roots so far are using a install-recovery.sh script or if init.d is enabled, a init.d script.
This means you could lose root if messing with these scripts which some rooted apps do!
What I have done is started the daemon in init.rc thus eliminating the need for boot scripts!
This took me a while to learn to do! Enjoy a BETTER ROOT!
2) Updated Google framework and Play Store core files. The ones in the stock ROM were out of date.
On first boot NOTHING will need to be updated once you logon to Google Play.
That is as of this date.
This may fix paid APP install issues but I do not know as I never have bought APPs and can’t test.
3) Debloated of junk APPs and Google Apps you can get from Google Play.
There was quite a few useless hidden apps in this KitKat release! Some of them did not even work.
I did remove XBMC and other pre-install APPs as well. I like a CLEAN ROM that you the user can setup the way you want.
Having APPs in /system leaves that junk in there forever (unless you delete them by hand with a root explorer).
If you want the original XBMC APP then download it from Geekbuying.com
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!
This time around due to updated security in 4.4, init.d was a lot harder to get working.
Again I had to figure it out!
5) I added the wifi 5G patch to fix problems with 5G wifi issues.
6) 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 Vega S89! 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 Vega.
7) I added a reboot APP that will allow optional reboot options like reboot to recovery for easier updates.
8) Carrier spoofs for better APP compatibility.
9) The usual tweaks I do for better performance e.g. buffers sizes, etc etc.
OK so here is the download!
READ the README.TXT in the zip for instructions!
