Mele Smart TV Box A10 v2.0.5 Metro / Modern UI firmware installed on Rikomagic MK802II Stick

Firmware Version: Android ICS 4.0.4 
Release date: 09.08.2013
Build number: V2.0.5

In this chapter we've got another firmware for our MK802II Stick: today we are talking about Mele Smart TV Box A10 v2.0.5 Metro / Modern UI firmware, you can download it from here, 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.  
- DLNA renderer, use UPnP to throw pictures/videos to your TV from your mobile phone (via WIFI). 
- Mele mobile phone remote control, control the Mele device from your mobile phone (via WIFI)
 - webdav server. 
 - adb-over-tcp functionality; from your PC, just perform adb connect your-mele-ip-addr to debug you device.

To get google apps, from the installed Mele firmware, use the Internet navigator and download this: http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip 
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. Or you can install gapps using GappInstaller-1.1.; you have to put gapps.zip on an external SD card or USB flash and launch this application. Choose the path and ignore a few errors, then restart the device and you're done.

What is added/fixed: 
- copied some app/apks (from v1.3.1 fw) in order to support gapps (not tested) 
- added ES Explorer 
- boot defaults to en_US 
- deactivated /system/lib/hw/sensors.exDroid.so (fixes 100% system_server bug) 
- deactivated u3gmonitor, findms services (consumes lots of CPU and I don't know why) 
- 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 
- added xpad.ko module 
- added GappInstaller-1.2, a user-friendly app to download and install Google apps. 
- Working YouTube v4.1.23.apk
