{Contains RKBatchTool 1.7 tested clean by Kaspersky}

This rom is also available as a CWM flashable zip. Want to find out why CWM is better?
Please view here for further information

TempestU39GT roms are meant to be lightweight, fast and functional. Anything fanciful that would contribute to bloat will not be added.

TempestU39GT roms are also tailored to the Cube U39GT. I personally maintain this rom for this device and this device only. This means there will be dedicated support for this device using this rom.

Note: TempestU39GT Roms have been tested to work and has been hosed down with bug spray. It still may have bugs though. please check post 2 to see if the bug has been listed before posting. Also, please be aware that I don't give a rat's behind about antutu or other benchmark scores. My emphasis is on real life performance rather than benchmarks. If you wish to ask about antutu or others, please create a separate thread.

  • Multi-Window Multitasking! (currently unavailable as it is buggy)
  • Hybrid of iFive X2 and Cube U39GT
  • Comes with minimize status bar and maximize status bar button (The double ended arrow button)
  • Comes with in build app drawer (The middle dots button)
  • Really really smooth
  • This list is currently incomplete

Hi Lambstone im wanting to remove the chinese software from the u39gt. Can i download the cwm straight onto the original tablet
or what do i need to do. Im happy to donate
At the moment no, its the best that I can make do. I could release hybrid1 and say its hybrid2 but it won't make any difference. When I do release a new version, there will be substantial changes. As for the battery icon, I'm currently stumped on this issue. I've used retina icons but I'm not sure why it seems to be upscaled from a lower res.

Hi. You can either flash this rom via RKBatchTool or use CWM to flash the rom.

I've included a comparison of RKBatchTool vs CWM in the main post. Personally I feel that CWM is heaps better and way more convenient, not to mention safer.

Yes RKBatchTool is safe when used correctly but CWM is the safest. To use an analogy, RKBatchTool is like using a condom whereas CWM is like getting a vasectomy.

PM me for more information on CWM
Hi Lambstone can you give me more info on the cwm
kind regards michael
