    Sweet..... Fast fast fast..... Nothing like a proper running Firmware to make a device run as it should. They should send you 5 more just because you made the device WORK...
    Many devices now mk902ii/Shield/Mk68 /Ugoos/neox5/minix5 (yes they still work lol) mk80 no it doesnt work lol.

      No doubt. superceleron adding value to the Vim2 already.
      Nice to have custom ROM available before the device even gets to the house.

            Well i dont, im using the fan kit from my vim1.
            But if you dont have it, them you need 1 heatsink, the ones for the Rasp Pi should do the job just fine!

                    Yes, for VIM1 the heatsink of rpi do the job (need a 13x13mm), but for VIM2 it's a little bit to small, need 15x15mm. But I was able to buy some from Amazon

                      good, if you get the fan from them is also nice.. but i think they are still in production of a new case because on the vim2 the fan hits a chip and make the top cover bend.. so they are working on it!

                    I put rubber spacers in mine just clears but very close. With thremal glue used keeps it very cool.

                        I'm sorry in advance if this is a simple question to answer. Does source code for Android 6.0.1 and the VIM2 Pro exist? I would like to compile Android 6.0.1 for the VIM2 Pro. Is this possible? If so, do instructions exist? Many thanks in advance!!
