Mele Android 4.0.4 ICS firmware v1.2 en_US customized


Well, I managed to create a custom rom:
- replacing the stock /system/app/Launcher2.apk by ApexLauncher
- removing /system/app/Mele_Launcher.apk
- adding /system/app/Vending.apk (Google Play)
- removing preinstalled applications (7StationGame_v1.1.15_DXsigned.apk 360buy_TV_v1.0.1_meleTV.apk Googlepinyin.apk MELE4.0_wasu_1.0.0.6_0906.apk QQ_1.9.1.apk VoolePlayV1.0SP4_mailea10_20251.apk AdobeFlashPlayer11.1.112.60.apk)
- adding service.adb.tcp.port=5555 in build.prop
And everything seems to run fine!
I changed the localization: en/US so that the first start is quite easy for everyone.

Edit: you still need to run the "Andrews patch 1.0.apk" patch in order to get sound in some videos:

    1. Indeed, hard to find. I can find changelogs for previous versions:
      http://bbs.mele.cn/showtopic-815.aspx
      But not this one...

      And for this version I only found this:

  3. How did you manage to build your own rom?
    I'd like to add a couple of kernel modules to the stock rom and keep them there..

    1. I will upload my bunch of linux shell scripts that I wrote in order to extract/repack the img (need clean them a little before).
      You can follow the miniand https://www.miniand.com/forums/forums/2/topics/73
      Once unpacked the A10 flash kitchen, just patch the packer_ics/files/image.cfg in order to add:
      {filename = INPUT_DIR .. "_extract\\RFSFAT16_DISKFS_000000000.fex", maintype = ITEM_ROOTFSFAT16, subtype = "DISKFS_000000000",},
      after line #60 (or around, after the one talking about ENVIROMENT_00000.fex

    1. Strange, I did not touch anything related to internal libraries so it should work in the same way as the original firmware:
      http://www.reddit.com/r/Mele/comments/znrbz/official_mele_ics_rom_v12_released_9812/
      Nevertheless you could try the "blue sky" version of the firmware http://tmerle.blogspot.fr/2012/09/new-new-mele-ics-404-firmware-released.html
      that should be the same version (except the language, still in Chinese).

    1. You mean that you had to change permissions to the flash apk? Can you precise the exact file? I should fix it in the upcoming v1.3 customized firmware...

    1. Bonjour,
      il y a un firmware plus récent:
      http://tmerle.blogspot.fr/2012/10/melehtpc0929betav13-revised-version_28.html
      Mais je ne sais pas s'il est compatible avec le Mele A3700.
      Au pire, il est compatible mais vous n'aurez que 4Go de FLASH accessible, sur les 8 disponibles.
      Utilisez sous PhoenixCard sous Windows: http://www.lundman.net/ftp/mele/PhoenixCardV306_2012_03_02.zip

  9. Hello Thierry! I've just bought a Mele A3700. But it's all in Chinese without Google Play etc. So, it's a bit useless for me :/ You've managed to do something for that but I don't know how to change the ROM to my TV Box. Can you help me ? Some instructions step-by-step ?

    1. Hello,
      something you can try simply is to use the ES Explorer trick:
      http://tmerle.blogspot.fr/2014/01/how-to-install-applications-without.html
      You won't need to install a modified firmware.
      Otherwise, you can install the latest firmware: http://tmerle.blogspot.fr/2014/04/mele-v2052-enus-firmware-fixing-netflix.html, based on a firmware compatible with Mele A3700.
