Booting a firmware without flashing it?

Postby pirlouwi » Thu May 23, 2013 9:07 pm

Hi,
i just received my Rikomagic MK802 ii.
There is an original Rikomagic v4.04 ICS inside.

I would like to test other firmwares, but without flashing it, and not loosing the original firmware.
Is it possible?
Is there a procedure for that?

Thx

only way to test other firmwares are to flash them... your original firmware for the mk802II is most likely here http://androidstick.nl/android-stick-firmware/

mk802II does flash using sd card via phoenix and is a relative "painless" process that only takes about 4 minutes to complete after downloading the firmware or rom

Good Luck!!!!

Phoenix, windows.
Is there any way of putting the fw image on the sd card using linux?

I have done the burning of the firmware on the SD card inside a winxp VM.
It seems working until now.
On the Rikomagic manual sheet, point 5. and 6. it tells that I must connect my MK802 to my PC using the OTG port, and then power it on.
What is the utility of that two points of procedure?
Any idea?
