    Measy U2A Troubles and Fixes

    This post is information I am sharing to help others, I am not an expert but these are the steps I took to get a working U2A after it seemed bricked.


    I purchased a Measy U2A and upgraded the firmware with the offical firmware from the polish Measy website http://www.measypolska.pl/p/blog-page_9.html and the device worked fine but I didn't have root and wanted root so I took the same package and rooted it after flashing I got 2 penguins one ontop of the other at that point I tried reflashing my rooted image and re rooting the image from scratch also I tried re flashing the update from Measy site and the orignal firmware all had same result would not boot just 2 penguins on the screen. After searching over the internet and through this forum I decided to try the Finless rom for Measy U2C at that point my stick booted just didn't have wifi so there was a driver problem so I continued to search / browse around and decided to try kernals from diff devices any finless kernel I tried would boot but had same result no wifi I just can not under stand why finless rom's will boot but even oem rom will not I guess they must be corrupt in some way, then I found pitures on a UG802 page that looked exactly like my device so as you could imagine a big bright light came on as I came to relize the Measy U2A is a UG802 V1 and so I downloaded a 4.2.2 UG802 V1 Rom from this page http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.p...-2-VERSION-1-0 and since there was not a 4.2.2 finless for U2C I downloaded a finless 4.2.2 rom for Imito MX1 MX2 from this page http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.p...inless-ROM-2-0 and I flashed finless using the boot.img and kernal.img from UG802 V1 Rom and guess what I now have my U2A 100% working as far as I can tell anyway with a custom rom. So this information should be helpfull for any body else who owns a Measy U2A and runs into issues like this it may also be helpfull for Bob to build a 4.2.2 finless rom for the Measy U2A.

    helpfull things I learned along the way
    1. at one point I flashed CWM for the Measy U2C to recovery and it worked fine so if anybody wants CWM the image for U2C works

    2. the measy u2a does not have a reset button but does have the empty pads and pads to enable mask rom mode the image below is of a ug802 v1 and is the same as my measy u2a the pads on top of picture with square around a circle are the reset pads where a reset button should have been placed you would short these pads and power on the device to put it in flash mode, the two very small pads at bottom of picture near the nand chip and inspection sticker with corner ripped off are the enable rom mask mode you would short these pads and power on the device to enable rom mask mode (rom mask mode should only be needed if the recovery image is corrupt)

      Nevermind..I managed to restore back the stock ROM using RKBatchtool.

      Can you share the steps you did in accomplishing your mix of ROM? Thanks in advance.

        There are two versions MEASY U2A.
        Version 1 with the switch.

        and

        Version 2 without the switch.

        They own the different arrangement wifi.
        realtek8188eus own both. Problem such as in UG802.

        Sorry for my English.

          I have a third version (clone?)
          looks same like your v1 but has no AT88SC... and Measy U2A Stock Roms doesn't boot. But i have found a solution to use UG802 Roms but this need soldering skills. http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.p...nrad-U2A-Clone

                        Sorry my english Dregov
                        Dregov,

                        thank you for the great rom.

                        I have been using your rom since 2.0, now I am using 4.0 and loving it.

                        I had to use google translate and experiment a bit - I don't speek polish but after a few minutes i managed to understand the instructions and load the new rom.

                        Also I needed to HW mod the U2A (solder the contact as per instructions) to get the wifi working.

                        ShowBox and Archos Media player work great, I use it to watch MKVs up to 15Mbps bitrate, after that it starts to skip frames.

                        U2A has been very stable - no resets etc. It's been working 24/7 for weeks without reset.

                        It would be great if you made instructions in english for other users.

                        Have you tried OC-ing your U2A - your newest 4.0 rom has 1.416GHz for CPU, but I was thinking of adding a thermal pad and chipset cooler on top of SoC to be able to push it to 1.6GHz.

                        Also do you plan to release a rom with 1080p kernel?

                            Thanks, Dregov!

                            I have had green flicker in Youtube videos with latest rom, but disabling HW overlay solved this.

                            Also my U2A doesn't have reset/restore button, so for flashing your rom I have used both RKbatchtool 1.7 and your FlashDregovRom (RKAndroid tool) utility, so I didn't have to open my U2A.

                            I would start RKbatchtool, click on the switch button in it to get U2A to recovery mode.



                            After that I used FlashDregovRom utility as per your manual to load the rom.

                            It also worked for recovering from bad rom without opening the device. Can you put the switch button/function in FlashDregovRom utility?

                              Hmm button switch is in FlashDregovRom as "PRZEŁĄCZ" in polish language

                              FlashDregovRom.exe in language english:
