The Freaktab.com administrator has been impressed with the MINIX ROMs of late, using the Neo X7 release as the basis for another Finless ROM 1.5 for the iMito QX1.
The new Android 4.2.2-based ROM 1.5 features a number of improvements common to most new Finless ROMs, including:
* root-access plus Superuser root-access manager app applied to Android 4.2.2
* all Google-required apps (including Google Play) updated to Android 4.2.2.
* Gameloft fix to allow Gameloft games to run without crashing.
* Build.prop edit to confuse Google Play into thinking its a Samsung device to enable more apps to be installed.
* Official stock 720p (1280×720-pixel) and true 1080p (1920×1080-pixel) kernels supplied – you choose which you want to run.
As the Neo X7 is another mini PC powered by Rockchip’s everywhere RK3188 quad-core Cortex A9 SoC CPU, you can install the ROM using the Rockchip firmware tools app for Windows. Instructions should be included in the ROM download available at the freaktab.com website.
The MINIX Neo X7 is one of the more feature-rich mini PCs on the market with 2GB of DDR3 and 16GB of on-board flash. You also get 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and RJ45 Fast Ethernet networking. With three USB2.0 host and one microUSB OTG ports, there’s no shortage of options on this one. As a result, it’s not the cheapest model on the market, selling for around $120 minimum, but so far, the Neo X7 has generally been well-received.
