    Hey Guys,

    Summer seems to be over and I think we start again testing some ROMs and new Devices !
    As we on VonDroid are only permitted to link Freaktab ROMs I will do this and respect this.

    I´m on testing a ROM from lewy20041, a Developer on Freaktab. Thanks to him for this great ROM !

    I flashed it to my T428 and I have to say, it´s much better as the Finless 1.5a.
    Sorry, Bob, but this is my Expierience.

    You can get the ROM for MK908 and T428 as they are almost the same and only have different WiFi Chipsets. Use the Link I post now...

    Heres the Link to the ROM: http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.php?6166-MK908-T428-Hybrid-Firmware-(HFW)-1-1-2-by-lewy20041
    You have to download the right File you need for your Device (T428, MK908 or MK908 v3)


    Here´s a Screenshot of my Homescreen after installing Nova Launcher Prime and some App´s

    So I figured out that it already has Bugs, but thats ok.

    Screenshot Button did not work after enabling it.
    Power Switch Menu did not work, it only shuts down or reboots.

    Anyone of you would try it ??? Share your Expieriences with us !
