Then i tried to install RK30 driver from zip(x86/win7) through device manager but i got "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" message in Device status window.
What am i doing wrong?


Did you connected the MK802 microUSB right into a PC USB 2.0 port, with the provided cable, with no USB hub, no external charger, etc?

Yes i used provided cable to power my device from my PC usb port
i had also connected USB hub in my MK802. Could it be problem? i will try it without it.

Finaly i made it work, rom looks fine so far, thank u all very much for your help :)
One problem i am still facing on this Rom and on old one as well is about connection of mounted external usb 2.5 hardisk to MK802 through usb hub. It often breaks down and while android displays message "Removed storage" and after that "Preparing storage". Its really annoying, because it breaks writing/reading operation on hardisk.
Is it problem with powering? I use 2 A 5V adapter, maybe 2.1A would solve this hm?

Sounds like a power issue, try plugging the drive direct into the unit.

Make sure the USB hub is powered if you are going to plug power-hungry stuff into it.

The MK802 just reboots or switches off if you try to pull too much power through USB in my experience.

Experiment by adding / removing add-ons.

You could use one of these wall plug to USB phone/tablet chargers. Those commonly give you 1A or higher in some cases.

Also I installed the Finless ROM on multiple MK802III's today, it works great!
The 1080p and mouse pointer look SO MUCH BETTER!

The Antutu benchmarks run around 8400 +/-
The Wifi speed went from 7-9mb download to 15-30mb download!
Upload sticked around 10mb.
Our provider gives us 120mb.. ;)

On Lan (via a USB adapter) it went from 20-80mb to 35-90mb. :)

Looks good, feels good, and the clockspeeds finally will be able to go over 1200mhz.
Like 1272mhz and 1678mhz! :)

I might go and try the 1.6Ghz clocked kernel, but not for now. I am first gonna test it on 1272mhz some more.

The Blutooth option doesn't work on my dongle yet. It turns the switch off directly after I hit the On switch.
It probably only checks for internal Blutooth.

I think the video streaming has become way better too, but I'm gonna test some more tomorrow.
First I'm gonna throw the WiFi antenna cable outside of the casing, and shield it (foil). I'm also gonna put heatsinks on the thing, I wonder if my cheap heatsinks will preform.. (before I go to 1.6Ghz :) )

Unlike the UG802, the stock CPU frequency of a MK802III is already 1.6ghz, so is it really necessary to add a heatsink? Maybe it's overclocked in other ways than just the CPU?
