Right now it is just the 3G version. Grab me a reliable download link with the latest M2 WiFi version stock firmware though and I will give it a shot

You would need a copy of the stock firmware and you would have to flash your unit with it to go backwards. There is probably a reset button your can pres somewhere on the device. I don't sell the M2 3G so I am not overly familiar with it. Our UK partner does though. You can reach him at [email protected]

Roman

I installed TNT2 and i am happy with it. I do not see extreme improvements, maybe a bit smoother and better compatibility (no errors on AppTalk with TNT2, they pop up with stock firmware).
Chrome still crashes and, when recharging, tablet is unusable (touchscreen goes crazy).

Anyway i sincerely thank you, roman. I really appreciate your work and hope there will be your support also on future updates.

P.S.
just a question: what is this app for?

not sure about that app..

roman how to increase the "TXpower" in the build.prop file?
This should give more power to the wifi transmitter and get better signal.

Hi Roman,

First let me thank you for this great ROM, it works like a charm!

I have a question:
-Why did you choose a phone to modify the build.prop (GS2) instead of a tablet one?

Don't you think it can cause incompatibility or wrong apps (phone ones instead of tablet ones) to be installed on the tablet?

Thanks

Hi
Brought M23G last week and everything seemed to be OK based on the stock ROM.
Chrome, 3G, all players etc etc

SD card also works fine......but only for a few hours. After so long (4-5hrs) the device seems to forget the card is mounted and cannot recognise it. It still lists files that are on the card (e.g if open videos it can see them) but when trying to play them they start and then immediate freeze.

The only solution is to remove the card (incorrectly - i.e no option to safely unmount it as the device does not recognise that it is mounted) and re-insert it. It is then ok for a few more hours until the whole process needs to be repeated.

Does this Custom ROM fix this problem ?

Are there any 'bugs' with this ROM which may be worth considering before deciding to Flash ?

Hi M23Gnewby, i have formatted my SD card in NTFS (using my computer) and it is working fine with TNT firmware.
Anyway, keep in mind that these low-cost RK3066 tablet have issues working with 32 Gb SD cards (both with stock and with TNT, as far as i know).

I suggest to install TNT2, it does not make radical changes, but i feel the tablet works better overall.

Thanks Lazyboy00

I was concious about the SD card problems at 32Gb, so I actually only bought a 16Gb....this is the one causing thr problems.

Is it really staright forward to install the TNT ROM ?
I'm really new to this and extremely worried about brickin the tablet
