Android 4.4 Reversing Camera Mirror With A10,A23,A33 CPU

These mirrors come in many different flavours now. At time of edit post A33 x5 quadcore is the latest with 16GB. This newer unit can be rooted with kingroot apk version. I find I lose root after reboot for some reason. I haven't found a firmware for this mirror version as of yet. For some reason my mirror does not have a wifi antenna attached so poor signal unless 4 meters line of sight. Please becareful as from experience from buying 3 mirrors now, there can be huge differences to build quality even thou they look the same.

I'm not updating this thread with RT01 firmware anymore. Please check Baidu link below
Also need this to load firmware to TF/microsd
To load new firm run Phoenixcard - Select image - Insert TF card/ Microsd - Choose burn (Try until magic) - Insert Tf Card into mirror and shutdown - After mirror firmware loaded you must format to normal or Tfcard will flash mirror again on reset

You may also find your firmware here. Let me know if you can't download it(use iPad to view)

Yfgo.apk - Radar program (you need mirror with radar function)
Thx to nyinyiwale

How to get root access:
Download this settings.apk and run it! Thanks to Nick Nick
Setup.apk (A23)

Just got this item off eBay. Url removed

Screen looks great. Touch screen works a treat. Nice and bright and good angle also.

There are a few things different listed that the seller on eBay has not listed correct.
It comes with android 4.4.2 And not 4.0
Has a A23 dual core and not A10
Kernel version 3.4.39
And it has a battery which would last a couple of days with no use - make sure you turn off wifi when not on power

This is a true android with some very basic functions missing. Starting it has no google services. So no google play store, no where to login to google account in settings. The launcher looks good(you can't change it) expect there is no access to app list. You can click on navi button - which holds no navigation software funny enough. Once inside the navi button you can hold on the screen and then it brings you up a app selection screen giving you option to add icons(still no gps map softwares)

Once connected to Internet apps start updating when you open them which is pretty cool.. There is an update option under andriod version screen which fails to find any update with an error(searches Internet for update or you can local upload file).

Overall I'm pretty impressed with this device and its speed. I was able to install google maps by browser. But once I closed it I could not open it again cause no icon to click on. Google maps ran a little bit sluggish but was acceptable. I'm now chasing the seller for a solution to google play store as the play store ask won't open after installing.

I was able to side load apps quite easily with the browser. Seems most work if the don't depend on play store or accounts being setup in google settings.
Synic gps software won't work as it wants to use playstore to download more files.
Es explorer works fine.

I don't think I will be able to get root access as there is no developer menu, but after clicking on firmware build number says you are already a developer

Hi, is it model rt01?

Do you have the same firmware 4.4.2 and specs?

Does it have an option to add google account inside android OS?

As mentioned above no google account in my OS which means no history in google maps. Very frustrating.

Could I also grab the seller as I my have to purchase a new one

Thank you if you can help

you can try to communicate via aliexpress with the store, seller is Mr wilson cao and ask him for a firmware, it's a pleasant person who respond to me very fast, also after my purchase for details. Try to say you're a friend of me (Superboost) and have same miror and you want the same OS, give a try, good luck.

I have seen a file for root on the net. I was thinking doing it that way.

I'll give it another go as I was more focused on before.

Do you have development option to activate usb debugging? I don't have this option, so it makes it hard for me.

That's why I suggested an method.

If you have usb debugging (lucky you) then try

Also sent a msg to your seller. I think he would have to be very nice to give time for nothing being a business man

I have not the "usb debugging option" and no more the menu security for the possibility to "accept unknown sources" option. I think it will be impossible to root the item.....
tell me if you have a response from seller, have a good day
