Mele A10 v2.0.1 20130411 Metro / Modern UI firmware installed on Rikomagic MK802II Stick

Firmware Version: Android ICS 4.0.4 
Release date: 20.04.2013
Build number: MeleHTPCVersion2.0.1

In this chapter we've got another firmware for our MK802II Stick: today we are talking about Mele A10 v2.0.1 20130411 Metro / Modern UI firmware, you can download it from here or from here.

The method is the same, burn the firmware with PhoenixCard Tool on your micro SD card, insert it in your MK802II stick, power on and wait 4-5 minute. In fact, you can learn from this video tutorial how to do it exactly. First boot takes longer, you have to wait about 5 minutes, so please be patient.

This firmware is particular with its frontend looking like Windows 8. 
- mp4 seek fixed 
- network issues after suspend seem to have been fixed 

To get google apps, from the installed Mele firmware, use the Internet navigator and download this: 
This will put the file in /mnt/sdcard/Download/, where the init script looks at. Reboot, wait for the device to reboot and you are done. 

The details of what is modified in this firmware from the original version (second link from above)
- boot defaults to en_US 
- deactivated /system/lib/hw/ (fixes 100% system_server bug) 
- added /etc/init.d capability 
- added capability to install gapps if zip present in /mnt/sdcard, by a /etc/init.d script 
- removed the Chinese applications (you can still find them in the original in system/preinstall and system/vendor/app, I kept Flash Player). 
- added xpad.ko module


Enjoy this new find, share is love! 

Always keep in mind that this is not a review, just a first sight of this firmware. You have to test it more for another details, to see if it satisfies your needs.
