Rikomagic has released a new 20-06-2013 firmware ROM for its MK802IV mini PC to fix previous-missed bugs.
According to androidpc.es, the new ROM fixes a few issues and adds in some partially-useful extras like screenshot.
But the main bug fixes include a fix for a Wi-Fi issue that also affected display connectivity. There’s also a fix for compatibility issues with Logitech webcams.
The MK802IV is the fifth-generation mini PC from makers Rikomagic (the MK802 III, III, + and original MK802 preceeded it) and is powered by Rockchip’s popular RK3188 quad-core SoC CPU ticking over at up to 1.8GHz.
The mini PC comes with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of flash storage, expandable through the on-board MicroSD card slot to another 32GB. It comes with a full-sized HDMI plug but is bundled with a short extension cable so you don’t have to weigh down the HDMI port of your monitor or TV.
The RK3188 quad-core chip has ARM’s reference Mali-400 MP4 quad-core graphics engine inside for gaming and graphics-intensive apps and comes with Android 4.1, although most of the ROM updates will now take this to 4.2.
Wireless is well catered for with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 supported.
It’s available from many online retailers for around $US90 including shipping (more than that and you should shop around).
