    Some other stuff..

    Download link
    (to be used for a Fresh install or pre CE210 versions)
    (drivers and Flashtool included)

    (You need to use RK flashtool, do not try to flash it like an OTA update.zip !)

    People can upgrade from Community edition firmware (2.1.0+) will receive an OTA update online.
    You don't have to flash this firmware!

    Full OTA:
    ONLY For people that have online OTA errors when system was tampered with.
    Rename to "update.zip" and copy it to your internal flash.

    MD5 Checksums:

    x7-rk3188-240.rar - 49e0ab9094495abc8248d4812ea6d32d
    x7-rk3188-OTA-240.zip - 0bcc82f180cc7303c6f6cb732a089df6

    Rooted devices may have issues with the OTA, if that happens you have to reflash your device!
    Changed system files can cause the OTA to abort! you can use the Full OTA above.

    Available Updates:
    Kitkat CE - root update
    Kitkat CE - unroot update

    To install the available updates (this is not for the Firmware!) rename the downloaded file to update.zip and place at the internal flash drive root, android will find the update and request you to install.

    No we have not done anything to mouse behaviour.
    When you have 230 an online update will popup soon for online OTA update. No need to flash again.
