NEW - UG802 2dark4u/Finless custom ROM version 1.7

Original Thread

Code: Select all!

Wow all.... what can I say?
This ROM was made by Alex and I just for you all! Talk about a labor of love for the hobby we both enjoy!
Alex (2dark4u) and I over the last week have been up super late every night to work on this. Realize PLEASE... I am in USA California and Alex is in Ukrain... We are on the other side of the world!
To work live together both of us have stayed up to VERY late hours MANY days!

So with that said... If you like this ROM. Please donate! You have no idea how many man hours went into this creation! Also, Alex does not have a donate link yet. So if you donate to me and want donations to go to Alex, Please put that in your donate comments on paypal! I will make sure Alex gets it!

Downloads..... So we at FreakTab cannot afford to host ROM downloads anymore. We in fact have moved to a new hosting company for the web site. Special thanks to Trunk Rainer (neomode) for keeping us alive! We just have not had enough donations or advertisers to pay the bandwidth bills!
So please help us to help you by donating!
The ROM dev's here will now be putting ROMs on Goggle Drive, DropBox, etc. But as you know these can be overwhelmed with downloads! So our policy has changed. FEEL FREE to put our roms UNCHANGED on mirriors!

Thank you all for your support!


NOW onto what this ROM kit is.....

This is ALL in the readme of the download!

Release Notes:
This was made from the latest Ugoos ROM for system.img but with a custom kernel by Alex (2dark4u).
There are a huge amount of changes in this ROM. See below for features.

In this ROM kit are custom kernels for overclock.
Some will burn out your UG802 if you do not have a heatsink on the processor!
SO BE CAREFUL which you choose. I did my best to explain in the README.txt for instructions on what to do!

This ROM is YOUR responsibility if you flash this. YOUR WARRANTY is voided for sure!



Features in 1.7 ROM:

The BIG feature! TRUE 1080P resolution if you want it!

1) A choice of custom kernels with Overclock support and FULL 1080P resolution!
WARNING! Be careful which kernel you choose for overclock!
Without a heatsink on the processor you CAN BURN OUT YOUR UG802!!!!

2) OC Kernels are also provided for 720p for users that do not have a TV with 1080.
See instructions IN THE ROM KEY README for deciding which kernel and boot.img to flash!

3) Fully rooted with the latest SU and SuperUser.apk

4) FULL Goole Play store! Thanks for tips from 2dark4u this enables full market in regions like Ukrain!
For instance, onlive APP should now show in Google Play!

5) All GAPPs updated to latest. This includes the latest Play Store, GMS Core, Youtube, Gmail, etc.
However Google Search is not updated as the latest cannot be a system APP. So update that once you are running.

6) I added a reboot APP that will allow you to reboot the device from the Android UI. No more unplugging the unit!

7) I give you the HIDE STATUS BAR feature BUILT IN!
On the status bar is a DOWN arrow icon. Click it and status bar is gone!
To bring it back just go into settings and it will pop back up.

8) I give you the TV Browser we have seen in other uGoos ROMs. So this ROM like all my ROMs has both launchers!

9) Full init.d support has been added! If you do not know what that is... ignore it.
Basically it allows you to install scripts that run at boot time.
If your interested, google search V6SuperCharger for a neat speed booster script.

10) User APP space by default was only 512MB.
I have now given you 2 parameter files to chose from! A 1GB APP space and a 2GB APP space choice!
By default the 1GB is chosen in the flash tool. This leaves 1.67GB Internal SDcard.
You can choose the 2GB parameter file which will leave you with only 670MB Internal SDcard.
The choice is yours!
So, if you flash this ROM using the PC based flash tool, you get more APP space. However, using
the SDcard update.img method for this ROM still leaves you with 504MB. Update.img from SDcard cannot
repartition the memory space. So if you want the larger APP space, use the PC flash tool.
To choose the 2GB parameter file, in the flash tool click the empty box to the far right of the parameter line.
A file browser will open. Navigate to the FinlessROM folder and select the parameter2gb file.
YOU MUST ERASE NAND (IDB) for this to work!

11) I added the Xbox Xpad.ko module as well as the XML file tweaks to support other game controllers.

12) I also added cifs.ko and md4.ko BUT! I have not tested them myself! So you all need to let me know CIFS works or not.


The insturstions for how to flash and use kernels is in the readme of the download!
READ THEM before you ask questions!


OK so here is the ROM download. It is on my Google Drive account!
I expect this to be overwhlemed by downloads and CUT OFF by Google!....
So users that got it PLEASE post mirriors for others!
As I said above, Freaktab has not gotten enough donations or advertisers to pay for direct downloads anymore! So we now have to use free file sharing sites

ROM DOWNLOAD -> ug802 2dark4u/Finless 1.7 ROM (247 megs)

I hope you enjoy this KICK ASS ROM! Well Alex and I thnk it is kick ass
You let us know!

BAH. Went to reflash this over hp's previously working UG802 JB Preview version. Thought I'd be cute and going to the 1080p version @ 1.2... and it bricked my dongle, despite reporting NAND erasing and burning it just fine. Shorting the NAND jumpers won't even recover it now. :-(

I've just dropped the 720p image onto my stock UG802. It tooks a few attempts to get the test to pass before burning but it's working great now (I can finally make use of it). Tested the latest XBMC and it's working fine (only tried SD content at this point.

Tangent alert - Is there anyway to change the icons on the main menu (eg, remove media player and add XBMC / Skype)?

Hi There,

great job, FW works great for me, am using the 1080p 1600/466 version and got a 8300 AnTuTu Benchmark result:-)
though this benchmark result tend to keep changing quite a bit. ;)

Anyway, just got one, possibly dumb, question .

I answered the Launcher question at the very beginning not with "just once" . so i seem to be stuck with the original view of the
Home Screen.
Is there a way, other than reflashing, to be able to switch to the alternate home screen ?
just couldnt figure how to do so ;) forgive me, if that is too dumb ... :?

Greetz, and thx for this marvelous job !

Nice work on the rom!

I've got a question though:
I've got the "UG802 II" version with 8GB memory and Bluetooth. will this custom rom work for me also?
I really want to make my app partition larger, but will this work for me or will all the partition resized to 4GB max?

I got my unit from AliExpress in December. It had an early Finless ROM which was interesting but a bit prone to random re-booting. WiFi always worked remarkably well, and as sensitive as my nexus phone.

Recently followed Bob's instructions and without any problems flashed his new 1.7 ROM 720P kernel, 720 boot, and 2GB parameter.

Everything perfect EXCEPT WIFI DOES NOT WORK.
I have tried the same parameters using both Bob's 'old' and 'new' rk wifi versions, powering off the device each time before re-booting after checking successful flash, but neither of them give me working wifi.

Any ideas, anybody....??
