The change log has some interesting fixes and improvements:

  • MediaBox Launcher optimization
  • Remove ‘Settings-Advanced-Location’ option of Amlogic
  • Repair the screen capture button (set to remove in the setting) turns up again after restart
  • Remove the bluetooth option in the 6181 sharing options
  • Repair no sound for notification problem
  • Google contact sync to calendar
  • Compatible with AP6330
  • Default 94% display
  • Power light adjustment
  • The name of device changed to MK808B Plus
  • Resolve the system halted problem when dragging the progress bar in video playing
  • Add the FishGame akp (can be uninstalled)

Whilst the fixes and optimisations for the MK808B Plus are always welcome additions, I’m not so happy about additional bloatware being added.
