From what I understand this device doesn't have a locked bootloader so I should be ok to upgrade? I plan on rooting to be able to use root apps and I'm a huge fan of xposed and wanam, I just want to make sure all of the hardware works before voiding my warranty.
Any insight is much appreciated! TIA
Not a ton of choices and developer love for this device -- probably due to the x86 architecture. Too bad because it is a very nice device. That all said, this ROM works great.
I'm pretty sure my wife's 10.1 upgraded beyond MI8 and I ended up flashing this ROM anyway mainly because it is deodexed.
I followed this guide for root and recovery:
Only thing to beware of:
uncheck the reboot option in odin and just hard power down...
Also, to me, it seems like vol up and down are reversed from what I expected to get into recovery. If you get into donwload mode, just try the other volume up button
Finally, there is a script in this forum for decrapping but it seems to mess up the galary. I ended up jet deleting .apk's for stuff I didn't want.
Good luck! -- Bud
