It’s a pity because this tough little mini PC delivered quite decent performance, thanks to its Rockchip dual-core RK3066 SoC CPU and a 1.6GHz clock rate. In fact, it’s the same chassis being used by a number of the new quad-core Rockchip RK3188-based mini PCs such as the MK908.
The most recent issue with the original MK800-series, according to users, has been problems trying to play Netflix videos without them being scrambled.
But MK808 seller geekbuying.com has said it has prodded the factory to churn out a new Android 4.2 ROM that fixes the problem. What’s more, the ROM update will be released f0r both the original MK808 and the follow-up Bluetooth-equipped MK808B.
At time of publishing, the ROM was expected to go up shortly with notification on geekbuying.com’s blog website.
The original MK808 was powered with Android 4.0/4.1 operating system and featured 1GB of RAM along with 8GB of on-board flash. Storage could be expanded up to 32GB via MicroSD card and what we liked about it was the on-board miniHDMI socket, rather than the plug. The MK808 is still available today from eBay sellers for just under the $50 mark in most markets.
