I just received my N70 Dual Core HD last week. Any idea what I need to change in the build.prop for more app listings? Currently, even Google Maps is labelled as incompatible with my device so it is getting frustrating.

I tried the Nexus 7 spoof that I got from your link but it doesn't seem to work. I even cleared Play Store data before rebooting. Google Maps still listed as incompatible with my device.

Yes, mine came included but I deleted it by accident. Anyway, it is just an example. Many apps are still missing from the Play Store. Do I have to change the fingerprint to 'Asus/Nexus 7/Nexus 7:4.1.1/JRO03D/402395:user/release-keys'?

My current fingerprint is 'Asus/Nexus 7/Nexus 7:4.1.1/JRO03H/eng.sw3.20121026.142348:eng/test-keys'.

1st question: how come your tablet is rooted? I tried super one click and zhuo dashi, they both say success, tablet is rooted, yay! But in reality when I try to use root explorer to delete apps or to edit build.prop to make it more compatible, I don't have permissions. Super user is installed, busybox is installed, the damn thing just won't root.
2nd issue, it isn't entirely about the build.prop, as with the firmware from Oct. 19th you can download Facebook and other apps and quite a few games directly from play store. It is about reporting the location, as with
Oct. 26th firmware the location on/off icon disappears completely from the power control widget, many apps and games are NOT compatible
Oct. 19th firmware the location on/off icon appearis in the power control widget, many apps are compatible

My guess would be that firmware Oct. 26th sets the device as made in China, used in China and therefore apps and games are restricted. They have that in China, Facebook is prohibited to them.

My solution has been to download the Oct. 19th firmware mirror, which was the original firmware that came with my N70HD, flash it using rockchip batch tool and live with the slight white noise made by the speaker and occasionally frozen screen. Until there is a reliable root method that will allow me to update the apps manually, the Oct. 26th firmware though it is smoother and faster is also impractical.
Use a download manager like FlashGet, the download speed is other wise painfully slow and riddled with network errors. Or if you would like I can upload it in the evening.

It slipped my mind which method I used to root my 26 Oct firmware. I can see Shuame, SuperOneClick and JB Script v0.5 in my Android folder. I got a feeling that I rooted my N70HD using JB script v0.5.

For those interested, I have included my current build.prop here. Any help or assistance is very much appreciated.

The link will expire on 30 Nov 2012.

thanks, edit the following cause you messed up

ro.build.description= change Asus back to nakasi

ro.build.fingerprint= change Asus back to Google

ro.product.board= change back to rk30sdk (you shouldn't ever change this!)

Note: i can't promise this will fix anything

Can you provide instruction on how to flash the firmware with the rockchip tool?
