    Hi Guys,

    How do I extract the img file? Trying to use RK3xxx_firmware tools but I get an error during unpack.

    Want to get hold of the remote files too see if it somehow can be fixed on the latest custom rom... Thanks.

    You should be able to unpack. using the same program the unpack of: G4_108C_20131118.img works fine for me. Make sure you have the correct version, I remember some older version have some issues.
    My version: 4.2.80.00

    Try jukiveins kitkat ROM from custom firmwares section. It is faster more stable and rooted.

    I have the 108C version so the KITKAT Rom is not suited for mine. Isnt there a way to compile this rom with root already included?

    Thanks

    Read about Kingo root. I used it once and it worked.

    Hello every one. I am a bit late to the party and have a few questions. One does the firmware down load .RAR file include RKBatchTool? Also will there be another update to fix netflix on 4.2.2 or is the g4 dead as far as updates go?

    There are 2 kitkat ROMs available for G4. They are in custom firmwares section. Try them.

    I've downloaded the firmware file 5 times, and it won't extract. It gives me an error. I updated to the latest WINRAR and it still gives me an error extracting the files. It says checksum error in the .img file, and unexpected end of file.

    Is there somewhere else I can download this file from?

    Use a download manager to download the file.

    That's not helpful as I don't know what that is, or where to get it. I also don't want to install a program just to download one file. Isn't there a mirror somewhere I can get a good copy of this file?

    Apologies for trying to help :rolleyes:

    Bad attitude. You didn't provide the help I asked for. You gave a solution that was not helpful (no link to the program you recommended), AND you never once thought that maybe I would not want to install a program just to download ONE file.

    I need the file hosted to another server (Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, etc...), not a vague suggestion to use a download manager.

    If I had ever given one of my clients "help" like that, I'd have been fired as a tech support specialist. It wasn't at all useful.
