Haven't had much time to put it through its paces as been travelling for work.
But here are some thoughts on it so far..
I have just upgraded to "update_Mygica_20130314.img"
Like the new bigger pointer for the mouse, also it seems to have brought back the remote controls as I had lost those but I still have to manually turn it off.
I swap out the Chinese launcher with Apex launcher - Apex runs nicely and can back up all the settings and screens so are happy with this.
Speeds and Kernel controls :
As pretty much the same as the M1-M3 box's - until we have developers that are hacking these to suit our needs we are locked in the the Geniatech/MyGicia/Privos setting's - Which I hope in the not to distant future we get some of the phone/Tablet kernel guru's turning up and opening these kernels up for us to adjust the speeds in which these can run.
Using CPU Master I am able to get it to run @ 1540 after boot but the settings don't stick and from the readings I have done this is in the way they have setup the Init.d..
What is Init.d?

Been said before-hoping in the not too distant future we get a CMW or TWRP going as this will give us more options to keep the box clean and load in customs roms.
How I do it -XBMC-addons
As I seem to be installing multi-able versions of XMBC and or firmware upgrades, I have now got a set pattern in which I can reset most of my fav addons back up.. it maybe a little long winded for some but works for me as I find that I lose addons if I don't keep track of them thus I have them saved to a NAS drive. I access them via this method to re-setup.
1: Load the NAS directory up using CIF manager.
2: In XBMC -Go in to "System-Addons-install from zip
3: Go in to "Root file system" then "mnt" then 'cifs' then a 'XBMC' directory where I keep a backup of all my depositories that I use. ( over the last 12 months I have collected a nice bunch of them from around the traps)
Droidmote : I had it going the first time I set the box up in a hotel room using my Asus portable wifi router and had the accelerometer working nicely on a few games. but since I have been back to my home network I have not been able to get it to work - just tested it with that modem again and its not working, so i would say the uniput needs to be loaded up via a script again. Will play with it when get time.
RemoteIME / Android Smart TV remote app
RemoteIME - §Q¥ÎAndroid¤â¾÷©Î¥*ªO¹q¸£³£¥i¥H¾Þ±±MyGica Enjoy TV Box
Not a lot of info on this one but it works nicely with my tf101 and this box.. what I like about it.. just works..
Finds the box and away we go.. wish Droidmote was that easy.
Got a thread on XDA on it.. so hopefully it gets picked up a bit more and some more work done it on..
Also been playing with this one.. but cant seem to get it to work.. got the server side apk but as yet, I am not sure if it will only go with the A8 but I have read somewhere that others have had it going but not sure on what hardware.
I got a feeling that you have to have the bubblepnp going then this may work in with this server and remote.
just haven't had enough time to play.
RKRemoteControl - Remote control app for RK3066 A8
Here is the rockchip.mediacenter app which goes on to the box. Plus in this zip is the other apk's you need.
If someone gets it going post back and let us how..
Import the TB backup file via TB backup.. either via the TB program or "open as" if you are running TB it should give you this option.. as thats how I got it to import in to mine..
Chinese TV apks
As I am here in the middle kingdom- I have to have things to entertain the guests so found this bundle - I am not sure how many will work outside of China but some are actually pretty good once you get the hang of how to use them. (no my Chinese is not that great).. a lot will update so this is normal.. just work out which is "yes" and which is "no"
(Will post the link once its loaded to Dropbox)
here's a link to addons for chinese tv within XBMC
ok.. a few problems of it locking up.
Cant pin it down to anyone one thing as yet..
Doesn't seem to get hot so thats not it as I have a USB laptop fan under it, seems to be when I change out to another input on the TV and or I leave it idle for some time, kinda goes in to sleep and not come out it.. got to reboot.
Another thing on the lastest MyGica roms is the lack of Home' 'Back' 'Search' 'Back' 'Recent Task' 'Menu' buttons.
so at the moment I am using this and it does the trick.
Button Savior (Root)
also an old few fav are..
Turn Off The Screen
K.. know its a bit of a long post, but been meaning to get it done over the last few weeks..
Other link of interest are same box different vendor's but pays to keep an eye on what's popping up around the traps.
And the thread over at xbmc.org
Just know people are going to be looking for info on this soon enough..
