MK808 mini PC gets Android 4.2.2 Beta Firmware

Orange Pi Development Boards

Last week, Geekbuying announced the first release of Android 4.2.2 for MK808, with support for MK808B coming soon. They warn users that it’s still beta since this is the first time Android 4.2 is available on Rockchip RK3066 mini PC, however I could not find user’s complains in the comments section, but at least one users in ARMTvTech is disappointed by this release.

MK808

You’ll find three download links:

  • Android 4.2.2 for MK808 (dropbox) – Currently unavailable due to heavy traffic
  • Android 4.2.2 for MK808 rooted (Gdrive) – Same version as above but rooted by deadhp1
  • RKBatchTool  1.5 (dropbox)- Windows tool to perform the upgrade. Currently unavailable but there are alternate links.

Once you get the files, you can follow the instructions showing how to upgrade MK808 firmware, or watch the video showing the upgrade process. MK808 is another device I don’t own, so I haven’t been able to try it myself.

Beside a smoother experience, the most interesting of Android 4.2 new features for mini PCs is probably multiple user profiles so that each member of the family can keep their own settings and scores on one mini PC. There’s also Miracast support, but I doubt you can just convert you MK808 into a Miracast dongle easily, since Android is designed for Miracast “clients”. The rest of the new features (photo sphere, gesture typing, notifications…) are not really relevant to this type of device.

Stock out operation! It’s funny to see how everybody wants to sell MK808/B stock because Tronsmart (MK809) & ZERO Devices Z4C are about to see te light… Obviously these two will be hot sellers again

The seller only has 13 ratings, the last bad ones were in Feb. So maybe worth the risk. BTW, some of the bad ratings were for this *Daxian* phone:

& one mentions Android 2.3 reskinned to 4.x, confirming what Javi said about this…

Holding it’s price remarkably (/irritatingly) well; $33.31 for RK3028 version here:

Now looks quite expensive compared to Raspi/Odroid C1
