Despite valiant effort from the uberoid team a custom uberoid rom is beyond reach for this Tablet Computer. So, Leeh33 over on techknow.t0xic.nl, made up a little package of files, apps and instructions that have worked very well at streamlining the factory rom on this tablet PC


It takes a bit of time to get sorted, and you're better off starting with a clean flash of the m799ca v2.2 1 Dec 2011 firmware (you'll find it under the software section). It's worth the work though, and it isn't too difficult if you familiarize yourself with the instructions and read through the feedback at www.techknow.t0xic.nl/. Leeh33 has uploaded the package to Mediafire (link below), but here is a copy of the instructions included within that package:

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+ YOU NEED THE 'M799CA V2.2 (1 DEC 2011)' FIRMWARE +
+ AND ROOT EXPLORER (PAID APP) TO DO THESE TWEAKS, +
+ THE REST IS INCLUDED (FREE APPS+ALL OTHER FILES) + 
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!! YOU MUST SET THE CORRECT PERMISSIONS FOR MOST  !!
!! COPIED FILES! THE LETTERS IN (BRACKETS) SHOW   !!
!! THE REQUIRED PERMISSIONS.                      !!
!! E.G.: (rw-r--r--) MEANS OWNER=READ&WRITE,      !!
!!       GROUP=READ ONLY, OTHER=READ ONLY.        !!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

01. UPDATE FIRMWARE (THIS IS THE ONE I'VE DONE THESE TWEAKS ON):
Flash the 'm799ca v2.2 1 DEC 2011' firmware

02. GET ANDROID O.S. READY FOR ROOTING & TWEAKING:
In the 'Settings' section of Android:
disable 'Background data' sync option (in 'Accounts & Sync')
enable 'Unknown Sources' and 'USB Debugging' (in 'Applications' & 'Applications->Development')

03. INSTALL & RUN THE ROOTING APP:
Install GingerBreak and run it
After reboot, uninstall GingerBreak (if desired, root still remains)

04. REMOVE FLASH PLAYER 10.1, READY FOR UPGRADE:
Uninstall Flash Player 10.1

05. INSTALL ROOT FILE MANAGEMENT APP:
Install Root Explorer, and open it

06. PUT IN THE NEW BUILD.PROP (FOR PERFORMANCE AND MARKET IMPROVEMENTS) AND FLASH PLAYER UPGRADE:
Copy (and overwrite) the following into /system:
build.prop (rw-r--r--)
flash_player_20110406.apk (rw-r--r--)

07. PUT IN THE EDITED FRAMEWORK.JAR FILE (FOR FULL MARKET ACCESS):
Copy (and overwrite) the following into /system/framework:
framework.jar (rw-r--r--)

08. PUT IN THE TWEAKS SCRIPT AND EDITED SD CARD MOUNTING FILE:
Copy (and overwrite) the following into /system/etc:
install-recovery.sh (r-xr-x---)
vold.fstab (rw-r--r--)

09. REMOVE UNNECESSARY SCRIPT:
Delete the following from /system/etc:
init.goldfish.sh

10. PUT IN THE EDITED WIFI CONFIG FILE (FOR BETTER CONNECTION QUALITY):
Copy (and overwrite) the following into /system/etc/Wireless/RT2870STA:
RT2870STA.dat (rw-r--r--)

11. PUT IN THE EDITED SETTINGS.DB (FOR WIFI 'NEVER SLEEPS' POLICY, DEFAULT SETTINGS EDITS AND APP STORAGE CONTROL):
Copy (and overwrite) the following into /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases:
settings.db (rw-rw----)

12. DOUBLE CHECK YOU'VE CHANGED THE PERMISSIONS OF settings.db, AND CHANGE THE OWNER & GROUP OF settings.db TO SYSTEM & SYSTEM
OR RISK A BOOTLOOPING TABLET!!!!!!

13. TRIPLE CHECK YOU'VE CHANGED THE PERMISSIONS OF settings.db, AND DOUBLE CHECK YOU'VE CHANGED THE OWNER & GROUP TO SYSTEM & SYSTEM
OR RISK A BOOTLOOPING TABLET!!!!!!

14. PUT IN THE SOUND BOOSTING APP:
Copy the following into /system/app:
DSPManager.apk (rw-r--r--)

15. GET RID OF USELESS/RESOURCE-HOGGING APPS:
Delete/rename the following in /system/app (all these are optional, but mostly useless/resource hungry):
Apkmanager
AutoReboot
CalenderWidget (it crashes)
FOTAKill
GuobiInput
iReader
Maps
qqforpad
SetupWizard
Spare Parts
SpeechRecorder
Street
Translate

Reboot through any constant Force Closes that occur (by holding down Power until the background blurs, then battle through the Force Close button presses to get to 'Power Off'), or else continue

16. STOP BATTERY-KILLING PHONE APPS:
For power saving, rename the following in /system/app (these can be renamed back then for 3G dongle support later, if needed):
TelephonyProvider.apk to TelephonyProvider.apk.bak (reboot if it then Force Closes)
Phone.apk to Phone.apk.bak

Reboot through the Force Closes

17. CLEAR DALVIK-CACHE, SO IT REBUILDS (NECESSARY WITH EDITED BUILD.PROP):
Delete everything in /data/dalvik-cache, and reboot again

18. INSTALL & RUN 'MEDIA SCANNER' KILLING APP:
Install Rescan Media Root
Open Rescan Media Root and disable Media Scanner
Uninstall Rescan Media Root (if desired, settings persist)

19. SET VOLUME BOOST:
Open DSP Manager, and configure the boosts (boost bass, boost volume, set effect level)

20. FINISH UP:
Change anything in 'Settings' as desired
Reboot, and enjoy!

KNOWN ISSUES:
- 'SILENT MODE' GONE FROM POWER OFF MENU
- DSP MANAGER SOMETIMES ONLY WORKS IF YOU ACTUALLY OPEN (AND CLOSE) IT TO TRIGGER THE BOOSTS

TechKnow community - where would I/we be without you all??

What you should get:

- Full Market access (inc. Paid Apps), using Nexus S settings
- Flash 10.3 (not brilliant, though - Flash sucks!)
- Snappy UI
- Better app management
- Better RAM management
- Higher (hopefully!) benchmarks
- Quicker boot (for me it seems to be)
- Better internet connection
- Higher sound output
- All-round performance boost!

You'll need to grab a copy of Root Explorer - it's a paid app, so I can't include it for free!

Any feedback/questions are welcome - I want you to enjoy your InfoTMIC tablet like I do!
