There is no crystal clear 1080 video like the linux picuntu xubuntu on the rikomagic dual core .

On any android stick out there .

Some bad videos are made because of capturing hardware and/or software , like this video where you can see the pc capture at the end is out of focus also .(then you can't tell which thing is the fault) :

Hello guys ( and girls )

I am confused .

Rikomagic proved me now that the 905 rom is true 1080 ( on which rikomagic mk802iv ver i don't know )

They did that by sending me a screen self snapshot containing data from an app about screen resolution .

picture link : http://sdrv.ms/1gVfMSj

This is double confirmation because the properties of the picture prove that it is 1920x1080 pixels .

I did tried the 905 on the S/N from 201305****to 201306 and did not see any change ... so i flashed back .

But i did not do the test i wrote above .

Do you people see a noticeable change between to roms ? in terms of focus (resolution) ?

There's a big difference between driving a screen at 1920x1080x 60Hz and being able to decode and render a film at the same resolution *and* the correct refresh rate. Rmember that real films do not run at 24fpd/60fps but at 23.9xx and 59.97fps - and most naive implementations of decoders fail to take this into account and this is one of the things that results in the tearing you see when watching what you think is a jerky video. There are other reasons too, of course.

While my device was good, I flashed the official 1080p (the last two version) fw to my device. The last one (surprisingly) worked quite stable on my device. That one was the most stable, I cannot recognise stabilty problems, but that was on my device only a short time.

But what I do not like in the 1080p firmwares, that is, they seem to work with 30 FPS on my displays. Is this the situation at everybody ? Is not the MK802IV's GPU powerfull enough to fill 1080p with 60FPS ? The launcher, the games, everything seem to work at 30FPS ...

I am begining to think that only a few or some apps work on 1080...simply beacause only some apps are programed to.

Can someone make a list which apps do display 1080 and prefferbly on the mk802iv ?

I have to say that the 05.09 update made a huge difference on my unit. Finally some progress in the right direction. I actually find it quite fun tinkering with stuff anyway so....

What is new in this rom ?
I have the 201305 ... hope somthing will solve my 1080 , (the 905 is not good) Including a formal picuntu for my 201305 MK802IV . The picuntu on rikomagic.uk/downloads is for 201307.
