The Tronsmart MK908 is one of a number of Rockchip RK3188 quad-core SoC CPU-powered mini PC sticks.
However, according to Geekbuying.com, it’s had issues with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Those are said to be fixed with a new Android 4.2 ROM released today.
You can grab the new ROM from the site and if you’re new to flashing ROMs, Geekbuying has basic instructions available as well.
In short, you’ll need to flash the ROM via your computer but you must first get the MK908 into recovery mode, which is the top-left pinhole on the back as shown in our pic, but follow the Geekbuying instructions if this is your first time.
The MK908 appear on the market a couple of months ago and delivers the Rockchip RK3188 quad-core processor in the same basic chassis as the original MK808, which featured the previous-generation RK3066 dual-core CPU. It’s available from many retailers for under $100 but now faces stiff competition from the likes of the CX-919 with an external Wi-Fi antenna or the new DM918, which features twin antenna.
Mini PCs require you to supply your own keyboard and mouse (usually via USB hub) and connect to your TV or monitor via miniHDMI cable. They run a fairly standard version of Android 4.1 or 4.2 (depending on the device) and work pretty much like your typical smartphone or tablet.
