New MINIX X7 ROM firmware built with RK3188 SDK2.0

neox7v2 While Rockchip’s RK3188 quad-core SoC CPU has become the driving force behind many tablets and mini PCs during the last six months, its performance on some models hasn’t been well optimised. That became evident when Rockchip announced a new SDK2.0 release for the chip which offered considerably improved video playback capabilities.

Rumours are that while many new RK3188-based tablets such as the PIPO U8 and CUBE U30GT2 are receiving the new SDK2.0 kernel build, many mini PCs are built using the original SDK1.0. However, a new ROM firmware update has appeared on that looks to be addressing that issue for owners of the MINIX X7 mini PC.

Freaktab ROM developer [strauzo] has released a new ROM built on Android 4.2.2 called ‘Nexus’, referring to it being as close to Android stock as is possible, but with RK3188 SDK2.0 and Multi-Windows suppport.

So far, feedback on the new ROM has been overwhelmingly positive with smooth playback of 1080p files and improved Netflix playback. You can download the ROM from the website.

    Not that it’s a bad runner to begin with, but I wouldn’t turn down an update for my CX-919! :D

      Not sure, Michael, but there might already be. Do a search for ‘CX-919 SDK2′ or check IIRC.
