Happy New Year!
So Finless Bob released the 1.6 ROM for the MK808 yesterday. I’ve had the image for less than 24hrs so the video only has my first impressions
I deviated from the installation instructions slightly as I already had my MK808 on the Finless 1.5a ROM and the XP virtual machine I used already had the MK808 driver installed.
If you want to give it a go then go to the FreakTab forum here. Here are some additional notes from my installation:
- I could only download using FireFox (Safari, IE and Chrome did not work)
- I needed to reset the stick before it was recognised. I did not need to do this when I upgraded from the factory build to 1.5a (see 1.5a upgrade details here)
- The stick still seemed to draw power even after I shutdown using the new soft shutdown button. Probably safer to unplug when not using as per instructions
- When I was flashing the ROM using my virtual XP machine, the stick would disconnect part way through the flashing process (I am assuming that this was just before the flashing began!). I needed to quickly re-mount the stick onto the virtual XP machine or else an error would occur (see error shown in video).
BBC iPlayer stopped working after the upgrade, but there could be a simple fix for this. I’ve not really checked it out yet! I am going to use this ROM in future features so will get to know it better over coming days!
If you need a few peripherals, check out the peripherals page. Will add more as I try them out!
