    Try it.
    but why...

    You only have to use the RKBatchTool 1.5 or 1.6 and the right Driver for your Windows... here: http://vondroid.com/forums/rockchip.257/
    Easy, also see the How-To Flash Rk3066 Guide at my Signature !

    Okay, but how do you install the drivers? There's no install file for them.

    For this Question I should do a Install Guide, lol...

    twitch330
    Drivers are here: http://vondroid.com/threads/rockchip-usb-driver-for-windows-2000-xp-vista-7-8.6151/

    Normally you take a Paperclip, put it into the little hole near the blue LED... theres a push Button you can feel inside.
    Push it and hold it. While holding it, connect the USB Charger Cable to your OTG Port of the MK808B and to your PC USB Backport !
    Normally Windows should recognize the Device and asks for installing Drivers, take the right Driver for your OS and install it.
    Then open the RKBatchTool, and Use my Guide to Flash it...

    You can find the RKBatchTool here: http://vondroid.com/forums/rockchip.257/

    For me... personally Finless. Wait some Days and Finless will port the 4.2.2 soon. It will be named Finless 2.0 !
    I use 1.6a, 1.7, because it´s rooted, has 1,5GB Space for Apps... the 4.2.2 has only 504MB which is a bit small for me.
    Also you have to root it and the Antutu Performance is about 1800 Points better on Finless !

    But it´s everyone´s Choice... try it, I mean, flashing it takes 3min., so flash and try, if you don´t like it, flash again.
    I personally never bricked a RK3066 Device fully ! You can restore Nand by Shortcirciut the Chip if you brick it.
    Don´t worry, it´s easy to flash !
    ;)

    Hello, as regards the score of antutu hope is not due to the constraints introduced with this kernel 3.0.36 +.
    You can post scores cpu, ram, 2d/3d? so we can get an idea if the CPU frequency has been limited or that of Mali400.

    Sure, here it is...

    Screenshot_2013-03-20-21-54-45.jpg

    Maybe anyone can provide a Screenshot from a Finless Version 1.6, 1.6a or 1.7 for us to compare...
    I can´t do that yet, too much work on other Devices. Maybe I´ll do more testings these Days on the 4.2.2 Beta Version of MK808B.
    Rooting with ChainsDD -> Superuser is possible for now. I´ve done it.

    Crazy Thing is that SetCpu now does 1,6GHz at Performance Governor, but still freezes after 5 Seconds using it.
    So this 4.2.2 is not really good for now, but maybe that´s why they did only BETA for now.
    I think we have to wait and see what Finless does with this 4.2.2

    Also for me 4.1.1 on Finless 1.6a or 1.7 is great for normal use !

    Good to hear.... by the Way, Finless 2.0 BETA based on this 4.2.2 BETA is up now...

    I flashed it and tested shortly, WiFi did not work for me. Have the RK903 Chipset...
    Since it is only BETA, I´m now back on good old Finless 1.6a ! 4.1.1 is the better Choice for me now !

    ?? Any Rom flashed or what did you do ?

    Anyway, please open a new Thread with this Problem... Off Topic.

    Try to get into Flash Mode with a Paperclip you put into the other hole beside the LED and hold it, then try to connect your OTG Port to your PC.
    Use Finless Flash Tool to Erase your Nand Flash. Maybe this helps. I never bricked one...
