Thought I'd get the ball rolling on this one here, so here's a thread to discus the posibillity of getting a newer version of Android running on the Momo.
From what I read, it appears there is good support for RK3066 based devices and AOSP/CyanogenMod (esp for the TV/PC on a stick type devices like the MK808), but can we easily build an image to use on the Momo? Is there much hardware in the Momo that required closed (non-free/proprietary) drivers? My initial thoughts are that there aren't as the RK3066 SoC has good support and source code available, and this is the main part of the whole computer. The wireless is Broadcom based so shouldn't be any issues (other than it being a bit crap!), in fact any Android upgrade should cure the wifi issues many of us experience as this is a generic JB issue seen across many Android devices.
What I'd think would be necessary would be to extract the relevant configs from stock image, and build against latest source, maybe it isn't as simple as that?
The other issue is bootloader, in my experience of Android phones, so long as it is not locked, it will do what is does - load the boot kernel and away you go, no manual intervention required. Hopefully Momo is the same. I tried installing a recovery once, resulting in 'soft brick' i.e. stuck on bootloader, but could still re-flash stock image, so no problem.
The other consideration is recovery (partition), using a recovery certainly makes flashing ROMs easier, but is it actually necessary? Probably easier to modify the original image with newer kernel/recovery.img files and system images..?
There is probably a load of info on all this for the Nexus devices, which essentially are similar but with RK3066 chipsets, methods likely the same?
I'm up for doing some leg work here, got a pc with plenty of grunt for compiling, just need the right recipe to follow and a bit of help and advice from whoever can!
