All seems ok, but i found a problem with root access. Rootchecker confirms the device is rooted, but there is a problem with root permssions for apps as TitaniumBackup, Tincore... (apps with root access needed). By the moment I go back to the last firmware

Hello, it is great to have kitkat on our mk802iv's, thanks.

I'm having trouble with root access, rootchecker tells me it is rooted, but root options don't work in several apps.

I can't access some files into the /data/data/ folder.

I tried ES Explorer, and even terminal emulator, but cant access the file I need into those folders.

Any comments?

Thanks!

Like nearly all their firmwares its a butchered mess of other peoples work.

Root is done incorrectly so its doesn't work requiring the user to root the device again. (not a shock when chatting with them they thought superuser rooted a device..lol)
CIFS is apparently missing from the kernel.


If you want working kitkat firmware pop over to freaktab and use neomode 3.1.
Fully working and very stable.
