    Hello all!

    We are UGOOS team. This thread about official firmware’s for UT3/UT3S/UM3.
    This thread will be update every time as new versions will be released. We are ready to actively cooperate with users and would be grateful if you will help us make the current firmware little better.
    FIRMWARE WITH LINUX
    version 0.3.1 (31/07/2015)
    Now we use new method for building firmware. This will speed up the process of development of new firmware and will improve their quality. Linux part firmware based on Ubuntu 15.04 with XFCE. For Android part using latest official firmware v2.2.0
    Especially for our devices, we have developed software that will allow you to control the hardware parts of the device. "uSettings" for all devices and "HDMI IN" for Ugoos UT3

    2. If it first time, you need to install drivers use DriverAssitant or manual when connecting device
    3. After installing the drivers will run the Android Tool and click on the “Upgrade Firmware”. Click on “Firmware” and specify the path to the firmware file. You need waiting until the program downloading information about the firmware, then it will display some information on the screen.
    4. Next step, you need connect device to your PC. If your device is Ugoos UM3, then follow these steps:
    a) To turn on the device
    b) Connect the device to computer via USB cable, the device should use the OTG port.
    c) Hold down the hardware reset button.
    Else (for Ugoos UT3 / UT3S) you need to perform the following steps:
    a) To turn off the device.
    b) To connect the device to computer via USB cable, the device should use the OTG port.
    c) Hold down the hardware reset button.
    d) Turn on the power.
    5. Click the Upgrade button to the firmware of the device. At the end you will see a sign indicating a successful operation.


    How to flash unpacked firmware (for firmwares v.0.2.1 and later):
    By default Android tool configured to flashing "clear" android on your device. If you want install
    “Dualboot” or “Clear linux” click right mouse button by program window, and then select
    “Load config”.
    Then choose one of configurations files:
    - config.cfg - if want flash only Android
    - config_dualboot.cfg - if want flash dualboot
    - config_linux.cfg - if want flash only linux
    In archive with firmware you can find full guide with images.

    How to flash special version firmware on SD card :
    For flashing image to sd card in linux you can use dd command
    sudo dd if=<path_to_img_file> of=<path_to_sdcard>
    example:
    Code:
    sudo dd if=UT3_SD_LINUX_0.3.0.img of=/dev/sdc
    For flashing image to sd card in Windows you can use Win32 Disk Imager - download

    Yes
    I changed some of the DE translations, so will build a new HPH RK3288 firmware.
    Then you can just check some of the menu translations.
    All the translations are over 500, but only a few are shown in the menus, so it takes too much time translating everything even if it is not shown.

    Hi Mo

    I already loaded your HPH 1.7 Files and started but some things only can be translated with Screenshots.
    Maybe 95% are okay without.I think to Friday the Files are ready.

    Have a nice Day

    About the "Memtrack" Bug i only know that the folder in System is empty and Catlog
    shows this Bug.

    I forgot i use a Huawei 3G Router and it works good with the other Devices.

    have a nice Day

    I also send you a message about translations, if you can check the DE translations I can use it in the next firmware.
    I added all the missing translations that only showed in English to the German translations.
    It is online translated so there might be lots of things that can be improved.
    http://freaktab.com/filedata/fetch?id=589982
    I will use the checked translations in the next firmware.
    You can check it next week.

    Somewhere there must be the reason why my Audio & Video stutters when Wifi is turned on.
    So i never will be able to use a LP or MM Rom on my UT3. !!!!!!

    nice Day

    Hi
    You can also test my firmware, should work on your device.
    I added 2 fixes for stuttering audio playback, maybe it will also help for your problems or maybe have no effect.
    You can find v1.7 here
    It is 2 files you flash.

    Please check if you still have the wifi bug on my firmware here.

    You also have a strange router, does it connect with 4G and wifi?
    Can you get a new firmware update for it or none available?
    I think it will be difficult for someone in China to do tests as the router won't be available there.
    Some 3G/4G & TP-Link routers with certain firmware I know have disconnecting problems with Android tv boxes.
    Only way is to replace the router with a different brand sometimes.

    Do you use bluetooth speakers, can you also test with tv speakers with a HDMI connection and see if you have audio stutters?
    In my firmware if playing 23.976fps videos, you can enable 'sync playback to display' in NTMC Kodi to not have video stutters.

    Here a user also reports stuttering audio, but he is using a USB DAC and a connected screen.
    You can maybe also look at the system usage when the music stutters.
    Start playing the music in the background then do the following steps while the music is playing and stuttering.
    1.For the memory usage type "dumpsys meminfo" in terminal app from Google Play Store.
    2.For the CPU usage type "top" command in a terminal app.
    Please upload the logs.

    Also use this app
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m.mrck.nomedia or
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...iokuma.nomedia
    to put no scanning files in all you audio/video folders, so Android doesn't scan all your files in the background that might cause slowdowns.

    Hi Mo

    Sorry Mo i already restored my Backup of 2.2.0.But here are the Catlogfiles with bugs like :

    WifiStateMachine/wpa supplicant/WifiDriver nl80211/ missing DRM certs and other ...

    Mo remember the WIFI makes a Search after a while and disconnect from Router,connects

    again and turns off (alone) after a while.

    Thanks for the link but i mean the Gamepadsettings inside Settings.

    I dont use Netflix and others.

    have a nice Day

    Off i have no Stutters / please can you look if Catlog says that the Wifi Chip is AP6210 or AP6335.
    My WIFI always makes new Searches and it turns off self / even on Wassers latest MM.
    Your WIFI too ???

    I really hope that Ugoos will make it better in futured Roms.I am really disappointed about that.

    AvA and what about a Tutorial for the Gamepadsettings ??? sorry i forgot i never can use it /
    because my Box can handle LP.

    How to use RKGameControlSettings
    http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featur...ronsmart-t428/

    For the stutters with wifi on.
    Can you post new catlogs and dmesges with wifi on then restart and with wifi off with the new firmware?


    Try to also get a catlog and dmesg for streaming Netflix for a while if you can or if someone else can do it, please do.
    Does Netflix audio play in sync or is it slightly out of sync?

    Same error at catlog with memtrack.
    Can you tell a bit more about this error 'catlog with memtrack'?
    memtrack usually means a driver wasn't loaded, but most probably it wasn't needed anyway.

    For the AP6212 wifi, it is just a text string typo, the correct AP63365 driver is indeed loaded.
    If there are wifi problems on other ROMs also, then please check your router settings and reset to default and also test with a different router.
    Some TP-Link routers have lots of problems with Android.
    Also set DHCP timeout in your router to a high value, 5-10 hours, sometimes it is only set to 1 hour in some routers then wifi disconnects after 1 hour.
    Using a static IP address or limiting the IP addresses you're Android device gets assigned also helps with connectivity problems.
    If everything was tried and there are still problems, maybe Ugoos can make some tweaked settings for users to test?

    Catlog still shows AP6210 and some other WIFI Bugs,but i have a AP6335 and please dont say again it is normal.
    KitKat says it is AP6335 / Lollipop says AP6210 / this can not be normal.Wifi On Stutters / Wifi Off no Stutters.
    The German Translations i made are only added 50% / some Words are not right / Pop Up Menu's not translated.
    Bugs still exist / like BassBoostBug (Equalizer) or Sound on Touch !!! since 2 Years.
    Catlog / Memtrack Module Bug still exist !!!

    Later i will add some Catlog Files so you can see it with your own Eyes.
