CPU Tool v1.3 and SD Bench v2.1 released

A1 CPU Tool logomemory-cards

A couple days ago we have released renewed versions of our software — A1 CPU Tool v1.3 and A1 SD Bench v2.1.

From now on, both apps manifests Default installation location to “auto” instead of “prefer external”. Prefer external was very handy for devices running Android v2.x, where Internal memory was scarce, and this allowed to move app to SD card automatically upon installation. Now when tens and hundreds of new devices appear every month, the “prefer external” is beginning to cause some problems on newer Androids, namely Jelly Bean and KitKat devices. So now 2.x Android users must move app to SD card manually.

Another new and interesting feature for CPU Tool is multi-window support. You can monitor used CPU frequencies while using any app that also support multi-window. Here is a screenshot:

Tronsmart CX-919 and Air Mouse iMove unboxing photos

We have yet another test device. Tronsmart CX-919 USB TV stick with android 4.2 and 4.4.2, HDMI output, and optional Air Mouse called iMove (identical to RC11). To power it directly from TV we use Delock USB Y cable, see photos below.

Stock ROM replaced with Finless ROM.
We are a little bit unlucky, because we have a stick with RK3188-T CPU. Also, we (as many others) can not use original Finless 1.6 ROM, because of HDMI flickering. Currently using Android KitKat 4.4.2 BETA.

Also note, that TV stick is recognized as GT-I9300. This is a hack, to allow install more apps in Play Store.
