    [ROM] Rocktouch RT7 RK2818 7" Capacitive Tablet Custom (XT0.1)


    (zeamlauncher in above screenshot)


    (installed a bunch of stuff on it already)

    Description

    This firmware is based on the 2011.11.12 shipping firmware of the Rocktouch RT7 tablet (also marked v0.18). It is a pre-rooted system image with major Google Android applications syncing, and workarounds to allow system writes for rooted users. It was created with the intention for an usable firmware that is close to the shipping version. This is Android 2.1.

    The tablet is available at HOTMID at the following link:
    http://hotmid.com/rocktouch-rt7-mid-...-g-sensor.html
    It was also reviewed by AndroidSPIN's Simon Walker at the following link:
    Quick Look: RockTouch RT7 Android 2.1 7″ Tablet

    It is a 7" 800x480, multitouch capacitive shanzhai tablet with RK2818. The backcover is a single white piece of plastic with 3 slits for the speaker, and an aluminum frame

    The RT7 original firmware was quite clean to begin with.

    Version 0.1
    This firmware will boot to English by default

    Not tested extensively. No support pleaded for this firmware. I am not responsible for what you do to your tablet.

    No further firmware revisions or features are planned.

    Features
    pre-rooted (Superuser, adb)
    writable system partition mounted to /data (aufs)
    lowmemorykiller tweaks (minfree for more aggressive background task killing)
    addition of Calendar application for working Google Calendar Sync (Cyanogenmod 5 D/S)
    addition of Gtalk and Gmail (LCR 1.8.2)
    addition of QuickOffice for Tablets ported by XDA
    addition of Android GenieWidget News and Weather application
    updated Android Market to 2.2.6, Google Maps to 5.1
    addition of Estrongs File Manager 1.8.8
    addition of compatible cifs.ko in /system/lib/modules to mounting
    addition of QuickSettings and AnyCut for access to otherwise hidden features in the firmware
    removal of extra picture viewer gallery applications
    removal of Rockchip's Aldiko rebranded software
    removal of Advanced Task Killer
    removal of Fireworks Live Wallpaper
    removal of Adobe Fonts designated for Next3 branded tablets
    attempt to change permissions on some system files to increase overall security
    tablet no longer auto-mounts when connected to computer via USB
    disable the use of swap
    other minor fixes

    cifs and aufs modules were built from kernel sources for Archos 7 Home Tablet

    Installation
    Firmware Installation Tool (from ArchosFans Wiki via Ramos W9 Upgrade Tool):
    Multiupload download

    Download: Multiupload download
    MD5: 2F967B4435A9277798536B722D79F560

    This firmware package comes with bootloader 5.02.

    Run RKAndroidBatchUpgrade included above. To enter firmware download mode, you need to ensure that the tablet has been powered off complete. Then while holding the menu and back buttons, press the power button and wait till the computer detects the 'RK281X Device'. When the device is detected, the Rockchip upgrade tool will change color. Click the Upgrade button to proceed the firmware flash. The process takes about 2 minutes to transfer, after which the firmware will be flashed within the unit. The overall process takes 15-20 minutes to complete the install. You will lose data when performing this firmware upgrade.

    To gain access to Android market, you must first connect to wifi, and enter your Google credentials. There is currently a bug with the Android Market install in this firmware where the Android Market license agreement fails to appear, resulting in failed downloads. In this case, you need to either restart the tablet, or close the Android Market running task (Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> (press the menu button) Filter -> All applications). Google Maps may exhibit the same behavior.

    CIFS.KO Windows Network File Sharing Notes
    nls_utf8 support is built into the kernel.
    Just add iocharset=utf8 as an option

    Choose to mount to /flash or some writable directory instead of what is specified by default, or it will not work.

    You must insmod cifs.ko by going into menu options.

    Append
    I actually found some weird behavior with Market not finding anything even though it was connected to wifi. To workaround this issue, simply enable and disable Mobile data (you will need to toggle wifi as well), and this will magically fix Market.

    Credit to naobsd (fun) for doing all the hard work of getting the tools(rkcrc, rkdump) setup to make this possible!
    Also to the Hvdwolf @ ArchosFans wiki for the excellent writeup on the RK2818

    Seems to work find on other capacitive 7" tablets with similar casings.

    I removed RKReader and some associated files because I thought this would save space. But this removes the optimized PDF reading functionality it comes with. I might put it back later if there's enough demand to do so. For now this ROM has been rock solid for me, and I don't intend to change a thing.

    A little sad that no one is replying

    I do have reports that people have flashed this onto their Wopad and have good results.

    Just a bug report - in removing RKReader (there were also a bunch of fonts that added up to around 15MB), I might have killed the RK2818's specialty to be optimized for PDF reading (only active if you use RKReader in the first place). I have messaged some people to help me investigate.

    Hi,

    I am using this ROM on my merimobiles Wopad and it's overall great. It is really snappy and stable.

    I got one question since Iam just a user: what is the cause of slow typing or rather responsiveness while filling text fields on forums, facebook etc. I got this problem on every rom since the stock version and I tried almost every browser there is. Is it the system itself, hardware?

    Thanks for any clue and for your great work on the rom.

    Should be the hardware. I mentioned this elsewhere, but this platform is arguably slower the one in the G1. The processor isn't quite fast enough.

    I use Dolphin Mini and AnySoftKeyboard, as those seem lightweight enough.


    Since it works on the Wopad, it is very likely that it will work on the Suli SL-7, Milkpad, or Window-N9 variants as well.

    Ok..

    One last thing:

    I tried to use 3g modem with my unit. Tablet detects the usb stick, modm starts flashing, but it never connects. I tried to set an APN, but after I set it and hit save, no item appeared at the apn list. Are there drivers for 3g modem included?

    Thanx

    This is a modified stock firmware. I do not believe I removed the functionality. It isn't compatible with everything. What do you have? There's a Chinese list for compatible RK2818 3G USB sticks floating around that I have not bothered to translate.

    HOTMID shows how it is done in the following video about 40 seconds in:

    I checked the pandwill table for compatibility: I have huawei e1750 and this dongle is supposed to be supported.

    Really dont know what's wrong.... I tried to use different apn configuration tools from the market, different settings for the provider (o2)....nothing.

    Thanx for help anyway

    Thanks for this ROM, i will test and report back.
    I will try to find the list of supported 3G dongles, also there is a new firmware from Rockchip for this device with greater support for 3G.

    I have flashed with the customs rom but not sure if i did it right.

    I cant get Market to download, get "Download error" all the time.
    Tested to reboot and stop process via Settings.

    Btw, is it possible to dump the original firmware and restore to default later?
