Which FW?

Postby Ozzah » Mon Dec 17, 2012 2:03 am

Just got my MK808 today. It played 720p video smoothly and the interface was smooth and fluid, but the whole device was only running at 720p.

I downloaded the 1080p firwmware from Geekbuying, and now the whole device is quite laggy. Video playback is jerky and opening/closing programs is slow. Is there any 1080p firmware (perhaps different from the one I tried), that runs smoother? Failing that, I can't find where to download the stock firmware so I can put my device back the way it was when I got it?

Thanks.

I just received mine as well and am completely new to this.

I'm looking for a FAQ that will describe proper steps on what to do first,, what to expect, whether to load the Finless ROM before updating to a 1080p firmware, etc...
Anyone know of a straightforward guide for someone just starting off?

What little, disorganised, dispersed information I managed to pull together is as follows: The "stock" firmwares seem to have code names like 204j1, 300j1, etc. but dates and descriptions seem to be in a shortage so I can only guess that 300j1 is newer than 204j1, and whether 300j1 is the latest is anybody's guess.

The 1080p firmware performed fairly terribly for me, so I tried to go back to stock. Failing to find the latest stock firmware that I could download for free at a reasonable speed (13 hours on the file hosting services without a premium account), I installed Finless 1.5A which seems to work quite well.

Video playback is still very choppy. I cannot play 720p video smoothly, let alone 1080p - regardless whether I'm running a 720p or 1080p ROM.

Reading posts is not the issue here, it's just such a huge amount of information all in one place, with no real timeline for new people to follow.
Looking at all the posts it's difficult to tell which is newest firmware, which ROM goes with which firmware, where to start the moment you get the device out of the box.

I might try to do just that and create a continuously updating thread for beginners and where to go first :P

A wiki or a better organisation from the moderators's part will be welcome.
I still using Finless ROM 1.5 because almost everything is working correctly and stable,even if I understand that it is not 1080....
If someone tells me that we have a better and more stable rom I will try it..
