Custom rom already probably not. Somebody has to make one. There is a lot a rom can give but for myself I only need a custom rom to remove everything i dont need or wanna spend hours removing within the 4.2.2. These chinese tablets usually come with only the bare essentials installed. I would suggest gaining root and having fun optimizing it yourself. The first step when I go about creating a rom is getting jellybean just the way i want it without anything like games or useless apps. Then dumping your system and creating a base rom from what you got. Then you can remove the unnecessary, add any compatible extras...repack and install. Make it generic but original and youve got something you can adfly for any others on your model of tablet. You get some cash and the satisfaction that youve helped others with the ability for a custom roms. Thats all the easy parts unfortunately though. I doubt i should delve into that. Its possible you may get a recovery for another like tablet to work.
As for root thats easy. I chose to use Bin4rys tool. Google bin4ry and root restore its should be relatively easy with the correct adb drivers. I have 2 chinese tablets, one a quantum axis 7" and an irulu ak303 7". Aside from the fact that the irulu is pink and doesnt sport an hdmi out or rear camera, and uses a rockchip....they are identical in almost every way down to hardware. The adb drivers for the quantum installed via vista online as soon as i plugged it in, however I had to go to the www(.)irulu(.)net for the other. Then it was just down to starting up bin4rys progger and selecting each option till one showed print onscreen, and a tablet restart.
For future reference to anyone else finding their way here looking for root help on these tablets: If you dont have su installed, cant install su, apps say no root(or only half say root true), root only apps dont ask for permissions(or do but fail regardless) or any combination of those examples you most likely dont have root. And even less likely dont have root if you did nothing to gain root just check.
To make it easier sry....download and install SU. If you cant your not rooted. If you can load it up and be sure it all works properly and all info seems to be correct. That doesnt prove root however. Download an app that requires root, any trusted one shall do. Access the app and do whatever needs to be done in order for the app to request permissions of SU. SU should pop up and ask basically yes or no...choose yes and then assure the app did what it was supposed to do correctly. If it did you have root....if it continuously fails, or doesnt request SU permissions at all you do not have root.
