[Release] Evolution Version: 2.0 Beta released by Prox32

[quote]Current version: 2.0 (Stable beta)
Release date: 11/05/2012

Credits: This firmware could not have happened without the base ROM from Moage. (Credits updated due to work coming from only me now)

Release notes: 2.0 Beta was going to be 2.0 alpha 2, however after running through some tests there is nothing to warrant a second alpha testing stage, so I have brought things forward and I am posting this as a beta. This release brings a whole system in place of the one in 1.4, and as such there are improvements across the board, from battery life to graphical smoothness.
============================================
Key features:
Android 4.0.4

Optimised init.rc & build.prop

2.0 Change log:
Entirely new Tweaks system based on the Cube - as a result there are simply too many changes to log (new version all together)

[Release] Evolution | Version: 1.3 | Date: 29/04/12 released by Prox32

[quote]Release notes: New moage build, followed up by a new build of evolution with various changes and fixes to the base moage system to make it into Evolution 1.3, so far through testing it is stable, easy to use compatible and overall fast and smooth.

1.3 change log:

Bloat removed (add-on apps are optional see downloads section)
Permission fixes
Stock launcher and browser updated
Build.prop Tweaked
Updated stock launcher
Boot animation tweaked slightly
WiFi tweaked to maintain a good connection on high latency networks (public domains)


Bug list 1.3:

Stay awake developer setting
Location services (although working for some)

Note: For anyone using a 3G dongle you will need the phone services in the optional apps, these have been separated because they cause a noticeable battery drain when left in as stock. Simply copy the apps to your tablet, using a root explorer of some kind copy them to /system/app.[/quote]

[Release] Evolution | Version: 1.2 | Date: 24/04/12 released by Prox32

[quote]Release notes: 1.2 brings bigger impact to the table with fewer changes and getting ever closer to that perfect ROM for the cube U9GT2, a set-up wizard option has been added, although you can chose to still go straight to your launcher. This ROM is a little experimental and for that reason I suggest some people stay on 1.12 if they feel they are happy there until feedback is given by the brave on 1.2.

1.2 change log:

Bloat removed (including Google books)
Updated Gapps
Permission fixes
Build.prop edited (testing different tweaks)
Gallery changed
Stock flash player removed
Battery mystery... Fixed? (testing required)
Updated stock launcher
Optional set-up wizard[/quote]

Download link: http://www.multiupload.com/JWVAFIB4RX

[quote]- removed Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, GP Moto, UCBrowser, ApkInstaller, FileExplorer, Stk, Phone, Phonesky, Provision + libs from those apks
- removed trash left by CUBE developers (Develop.apk and VideoEditor.apk - both files were same size and overwritten with RK image building script...don't ask me why)
- added (or replaced with newer) Google Apps (Earth, Maps, Docs, Calendar, Market, Gmail, Email, multiple syncs, login, search, Video Editor, Voice Search, Talk, Youtube, etc.)
- added Setup Wizzard (for easy language and google account selection on first start)
- added FileExpert and latest Superuser (ROOT)
- changed WI-FI scan interval (from 15) to 120 seconds - should save some battery
- disabled startup sound
- fixed? garbage in build.prop (ro.rk.EXTERNAL_VOLUME, ro.rk.INTERNAL_VOLUME)
- fixed external_sd, usb_storage permissions
- fixed ADB drivers (ADB works, but disables MTP, PTP while it's enabled)
- fixed Camera bug in previous mod[/quote]

Notes, bugs:
[quote]If you're still running 1.04 version and thinking about switching to 1.05 then you should be aware of these (major) changes/bugs cube introduced in 1.05:
- you can no longer move apps to internal memory (emulated SD), so you're stuck with ~800 MB for apps unless you insert real SD (then you can move the apps to the real SD - I've read it somewhere but I didn't try it yet)
- application screen size is reduced - bottom status bar is visible at all times
- you need to disable USB debug mode to be able to access filesystem on U9GT2
- android 4 introduced a flag to ditch wi-fi networks with bad signal...this is ON by default...so if you frequently loose connectivity you need to go to advanced wi-fi settings and untick the setting (I can't remember the exact name but it's fairly obvious)
[b]- touch screen goes behaves erratically while device is connected to power adapter - seems like there's some power/grounding issue; when you disconnect the adapter the touchscreen returns to normal behavior
- Adobe Flash only works on some sites[/quote]

For further info also see the thread on xda.

I got a few of these tablets and I have been trying to use the Rockchip Batch Tool to load in the 4.0 image. However I have only managed to get the tablet detected once, I assume it's a USB driver issue with Win7 but I'm not sure. The device shows up as an "HTC Dream Composite ADB Interface" in my device manager and I can't update the driver with any of the ones that I have found that are possibly related to this tablet.

Any help on how to load this thing would be appreciated. Thank You in advance.

Hi,

You may have a problem with W7 64 bits. The drivers are usually for 32 bits.
I've managed to flash my tablet with windows XP.
Androis 4.0 is working well, very stable and all apps are OK.
Only problem is that the tab is crashing after going in sleeping mode and need a lot of time to restart...

I'm going to try to find a WinXP laptop somewhere in the house since mine is W7 64bits.

I installed Clockworkmod thinking that maybe I could boot up in recovery mode and load the image from the SD card or maybe RKBatchTool 1.4 would detect it on the USB. But not luck either way. Once the tablet is in recovery mode I don't know how to get it to look for the image from the SD card.

Anyone ever load this tablet or maybe any RK2918 device from recovery mode? Some step by step procedures would be nice. :)

Does the Market work in 4.0?

Hi, I was yesterday on the cube download page. The v 1.05 Andrews 4.0 was listed in the download list.
By clicking on the download button, a countdown page was opening with 9 hours countdown time for the release...
Since yesterday night the server is down and the cube download page is no more available.

www.51cube.com/tools.asp

Let's wait cube to rebuilt the server...

Does anyone know what happen ?

As I understand Chinese, I followed closely on the developments on the 4.0 firmware release. Cube screwed up as they stated they would release the firmware on 28 Dec '11, 9pm, Beijing Time. There was a "live" countdown page showing the impending release. Everyone was extremely excited and praised Cube for keeping their promise of releasing Android 4.0 by the end of the year. However, there was no firmware at 9pm. The release changed to 29 Dec '11, 9pm. There was an uproar in their official forum. There were no explanation whatsover, and some of the complain threads were deleted.

Then, the firmware download page (/tools.asp) "disappeared". As you can see, things got pretty bad.

Someone tried a newly released beta Android 4.0 firmware (by the company "Yuan Dao") on U9GT 2, and claimed it worked. Folks cheered Yuan Dao and condemned Cube. Then for unknown reasons, the firmware was removed from the official site. Ouch.

Now, there seems to be news that the official Cube U9GT 2 Android 4.0.3 firmware had been leaked (click for the thread) and folks tested it to be genuine. At the time of writing, the official page is still down.

If you're keen, try the leaked firmware here: http://kuai.xunlei.com/d/YEVWCCXPZDAZ (download only via Xunlei client!)

See the attached picture for the "About" details. :)

"Andrews" is the wrong English translation of "Android". Apparently, in Chinese, Andrew and Android are "spelt" the same way.

I'm not Russian or understand it but I found this link on Russian forum: http://www.multiupload.com/AEEH4Y6VXX


Downloading it as I post this and it seems to be the same ICS 4.0 file as on the Chinese website.

I have also tried the drivers on an old Centrino with 32bit XP installed where the tablet shows up as a "rk2918 sdk". I tried installing every version of the driver AMD and Intel with no luck. Very strange.

No luck with AMD drivers on i7 W7 64bit either. Tried all the drivers as well...

Ok I finally got it working! My problem was related to the tablet being in Development mode in the settings. My mistake... SORRY! On the W7 i7 64bit used the AMD driver and got it to work. Loaded the U9GT2_V4.0.3_20111229 file and managed to switch it to English since default is Chinese. Very nice... BUT no Market!!! That sucks big time.

Later on will try and load the earlier BETA version of the ICS 4.0 and see if the Market is working.

I joined the forum just to warn fellow U9GT2 owners basically. The leaked ROM is probably a beta for an aPAD and not the U9GT2. It's totally stripped of Google applications (it has no market, no gmail, no nothing), I tried to download and install android market, but it kept crashing. Clearing the cache didn't help either. So without all that, it's practically useless. The earlier beta was fine, market etc was working, it just had a major incompatibility with google calendar (couldn't see any calendar of mine), and some minor one in applications (facebook, twitter, and others were labeled as incompatible with my tablet).

So back to 1.04 and waiting for the official release.

Kombatant is right.. I too have tested the firmware with the same result. The microphone isn't working on either.. Android Market works on the first beta release but not on this latest one.. Some key features on Android 4.0 work on this latest one, for example the facial recognition.. This doesn't work on the first beta release. Really not sure what is going on but both versions are flawed and not worth using in my personal opinion. It shouldn't be to long before a final release is available, seems like they are on the right track.

Yes it is a leaked beta. The official rom is being uploaded as we speak!
