True 1080p ROM with CWM Recovery

Postby pinguy » Wed Mar 27, 2013 11:48 am

I am not sure why everyone thinks the Uhost2 is true HD because it's not. You can check by installing XBMC and checking system stats. It will show its 720p.

This is a true 1080p rom. I have set the DPI to 240 so the text isn't to small. But it is running at 1080p

At the moment I haven't worked out how to make a CWM.zip installer or how to make the update.img that will flash with RKBatchTool.

So what I have done for now is made a CWM backup and copied that.

So to be able to install this you will need to install CWM. But I have included everything you need in the zip file.

To install the ROM you need to:
  1. Uzip U2-1080.zip and place the contents onto your SD card.
  2. Make sure the "clockworkmod" folder is placed on the root of the SD Card (not inside another folder)
  3. Install all 3 apk's from the "Needed Apps" folder.
  4. Open the Explorer (that you just installed) and copy "flash_image" and "recovery.img" from the SD to /dev on the device (the external SD will show up under /mnt)
  5. Open the Terminal app and type SU then enter.
  6. Then type these commands into the Terminal.

    Code: Select all

    chmod 755 /dev/flash_image
    /dev/flash_image recovery /dev/recovery.img

  7. Once done you should see a message saying something like "Recovery Flashed".
  8. Now open Quick Reboot and select recovery.
  9. Once in CWM recovery (you need a USB mouse to work it) select "Backup and Restore" and pick "Restore from external SD". The backup is called "U2-1080"
  10. Once the backup is restored reboot device.

    VERY IMPORTANT: CWM will ask "ROM may flash stock recovery on boot. FIX?" when rebooting. Make sure you select "NO".

  11. When first booting the device it will get stuck at the Google TV logo. Just unplug the Uhost2 then plug it back in. It will reboot fine after that.
  12. If the Probox2 bootscreen stays on longer then 3 minutes (this has only happened to me once), pull the power cable and reboot.

Download:
U2-1080-V3.1.zip - 363.87 MB

Please post feedback on bugs etc.
