Even though we aren't selling this unit I did create firmware for it that is pretty well improved over stock. This firmware is built off of 1120 firmware.

All the typical changes have been made (just see change notes for pretty much every other rom on our firmware page).

Official Release 1 Firmware now available! New site for firmware image releases!

Go to: http://www.rockchipfirmware.com/ , then click on the "Firmware Downloads" button up top, then choose your device manufacturer and finally grab the image for your unit. Make sure you get the image from the "Top Notch Tablets" section and not from the "STOCK" section.

Flash normally (the firmware tool is on the first page, I will also be creating a page with flashing instructions soon).

Does anyone know the flash-mode button combo for this tablet?

Regards!

That's great news! Something to do this Saturday afternoon!

The tricky part is getting the RK3066 usb drivers installed in windows,so to do this you need to get the device connected via cable in boot-loader/recovery mode before windows will see the device as a RK3066 device and not mass storage/adb device. There is a 3rd button on the Momo8 (after the power and reset) but it is hidden inside. The only other known ways to get Momo8 to boot-loader or recovery at the moment is via; ZhuoDashi, adb or (untested) using a quick/easy reboot app from Play market.

All we need now is a custom recovery that suits our tablets and it's game on!

Thanks for your work Roman!

[Edit] Now flashed to TNT Release 1 and all seems fine - thanks! (first boot takes a few mins people - just enjoy the Nexus logo boot screen while it starts!)

One very small issue is that the Equalizer app (system app so can't be managed via Play Store) prompts you to upgrade, but you can't, so it's useless...

[Edit] OK for some reason I can now update the app from Play...go-figure??!

I am getting SOD quite often now. I have the mono plugged in and after about an hour of it being in sleep mode it won't turn back on. I have to rest it by holding down the power button for more then ten seconds then unplugging and plugging back in. Anyone else have this issue? FredPlex

SOD?

Sorry, not familiar with that.

Are you having this problem with this firmware?

If so, I am sorry, I only had my hands on the Momo 8 for a day or so and couldn't test extensively.

Hey Roman, I should have been more specific, SOD = sleep of death in which the tablet does not wake up via the power button after it goes to sleep. The problem has happened to be about 4 times. Otherwise it has been perfect. With that said I removed a recent weather app I installed as it seemed like it was the last app I installed before I started getting this issue. Right now it's been up for 8 hours without a SOD <shrug> not sure what is happening... I'll keep an eye on it and perhaps I'll reformat and try again. Thanks for now.

PS. I took your tutorials available on rockchipformware.com and repackaged the latest Rock X 8 firmware with bigger userspace, rooted, removed chinese apps... things are working perfectly with the new rebuilt rom. Thanks so much for putting up these tutorials and giving me a jump start on ROM cooking. Looking forward to your subsequent tutorials.

PSS. I am going to do the same with the MOMO 8 firmware so I can test different things since you don't have a momo 8 any longer....

Thanks, FredPlex

Did you actually read the OP? Roman clearly states that the changelog is pretty much the same for all the ROMs, so have a look at his site and see for yourselves.

That's great :)

Best of luck with it! If you get something made and tested and want some place to put it for download I can host it for you at rockchipfirmware.com under the custom rom section of Ployer.

I've been running this on my A1CS rapid5 8" (a re-badged momo8 IPS) for a couple of weeks now with no problems, installed fine, root works fine, I've had no lockups coming out of sleep or during normal use, thanks for making the rom :good:

fingers crossed ployer release a 4.2.2 firmware soon...

Hi Roman2025,

My Momo8 IPS (ordered 11th Mar) arrived yesterday afternoon (Monday 25th March) I experimented for 6 hours solid on the PLoyer's 4.1.1 fw then got the flash itch :lol: some of the reasons I decided on your fw where the increased rom storage i.e. from

  • 1gig to 2 gigs
  • Rooted with SU installed
  • Bloat removed, Asia apps etc
  • Clean & lean install
  • Games loft enhancement


Everything is great and touch response is much quicker than the original fw. Only one thing to report and this is not a complaint. There are 2 Gallery/image apk icons, I imagine it should be ok to just remove/disable one yes?

thanks for your time and effort on this project :drinks:
