Like others here, I have eventually managed to download the image and it mostly works fine. The main problem is that I have the rtl8188eu wireless chip, so WiFi doesn't work. Could the driver be put into the Ricomagic image, or alternatively could we get hold of the source for the kernel to be able to compile it ourselves?

The other issue is that the Lubuntu Software Centre doesn't work. Clicking on the menu option does nothing.

Thanks,
Ned

Sorry if this is not the appropriate question for this forum.

If just started with the mk802.

Im an experienced Linux user and I just got a mk802 III.

I downloaded the image and followed the instructions to the letter.

When I insert the sd card and reboot my stick just reboots to android. Have I missed something ?

Thanks in advance for any help

Andrew

I registered just to say very VERY thank you, I had the original android running a simple personal git server, and every single day I needed to reboot. That was very annoying.

Now, with your custom Linux, I'm running a full personal Mercurial server, including web access, for almost a month, without any reboots at all, and it's way faster. Not to mention all the other features, that made the gadget shine!!!

Thank you again!

I downloaded image from the link: http://store.cloudsto.com/downloads/lub ... magicuk.7z

It is not recognized as 7z archive. What is wrong?

Thanks

Hi,

I now have my MK802II with rtl8188eu working with the built-in wifi. I wanted to retain the installation I had, as I have installed a bunch of stuff in it, so I followed the instructions as advised above up to the point of building the kernel. I then just created a "rtl8188eu" directory in /lib/modules/3.0.36-t1+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ and copied the 8188eu.ko module to it and ran "depmod -a". I shut down, removed the USB wifi dongle, rebooted and had wifi with the built-in chip.

Perhaps everyone does, but I thought I'd mention that I did all the compiling, etc. on the MK802 itself.
