CyanogenMod 10.1 coming to the RK3188 CPU

rk3188Rockchip has one of the most popular quad-core ARM processors on the market in its RK3188. The chip is old Cortex A9 technology but manufacturered on a smaller, more efficient 28-nanometre scale.

While it’s used in almost every new China-source tablet and mini PC at the moment, it looks like its about to get another treat – CyanogenMod 10.1.

A developer on the busy Freaktab.com website going under the handle [neomode] claims to have the popular custom Jelly Bean ROM running on RK3188 sans Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

CyanogenMod 10.1 – better known as CM10.1 – is based on the Android Open-Source Project and aims to provide a vanilla Android experience without the bloatware typically added by various hardware vendors.

At this stage, [neomode] hasn’t given a timeframe on when his build will be available for download, only saying that Wi-Fi and Bluetooth were next and that there would be ‘more news soon’.

The quad-core CPU has turned up in numerous mini PCs such as the new DM918, and plus the popular CX-919 and amongst several Android tablets including the Newman S98 and Hyundai X900 models, both sporting Retina-grade panels.

While the news will be popular amongst RK3188 fans, it looks likely that there’ll need to be a special build for each device to bake in the various drivers required for the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi modules. However, even so, its still likely to be a popular ROM for devices based on this processor.
