Android Mini PCAre you a the owner of a Rockchip RK3066 dual core Android Mini PC? If you have an MK808, UG802, UG007, MX1, MK802 III, Neo G4, Uhost2 or a Probox2, you are a proud owner of one. The RK3066 is currently the most popular SoC that is used by the Android Mini PC devices because it gives pretty decent performance at a low price.

However, even though all the models above use more or less the same hardware, overall performance may differ due to the firmware used. If you are stuck with a model with buggy firmware, don’t worry as one of the attractions of using an Android device is that the firmware is usually easily hacked.

This means that you can replace the firmware with custom ROMs that can do wonders like improve performance, change the interface or add new features. You can even dump Android and run Linux. Yes, while it is still very much in beta, Linux is finally supported on the Rockchip RK3066 devices in the form of Picuntu Linux.

The Rockchip RK3066 Android Mini PC firmware and Linux update guide compiles all the official firmware updates from the manufacturers, the most popular custom ROMs, Linux firmware options plus step by step instructions on how to do the update for all the different models. Links to all the required software and ROM images are also included.
