A: The original single-core MK802? No, there isn’t. Official support for the original MK802 appears to have ended with Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and the REV.2 firmware. You can still download the REV.2 release from the Rikomagic forum site.
The closest you’ll get the Android 4.2 is a complicated process of installing Android 4.1 courtesy of CyanogenMod10 (CM10). You can read the details on the Miniand forum site but it must be said, doing this install isn’t for the feint hearted.
Reports on CM10 have been favourable but it’s not without issues, with ‘corrupted flash storage’ seemingly a common one but there are solutions to this mentioned at the same Miniand forum site above.
Unfortunately, it looks as though there is much greater support for the MK802II with a number of custom Android 4.2.2 ROMs available for that device. As far as we can tell, the only devices with official Android 4.2 support from Rikomagic are the more recent dual-core MK802III and quad-core MK802IV models.
The MK802 was one of the very first mini PCs released onto the market and featured Allwinner’s A10 single-core Cortex A8 SoC CPU. It typically came with either 512MB of 1GB of RAM and up to 4GB of flash storage.
