Update: I’ve flashed 1.05 on my own unit, lost everything so remember to backup data! So far nothing new, audio jack buzz is the same. If anything the ROM feels a little more fluid?
The FNF iFive Mini 4S has another ROM update, version 1.05 is 502Mb in size doesn’t seem to have a changelog anywhere I can find. So I assume it’s a bug fix release, I haven’t flashed it yet as I don’t want to loose all my data. I’ll have to see if it can be flash just updating the ROM and not a complete wipe. But for those that got themselves an iFive Mini 4S without Google Play installed this is your best bet, flash this and it will have Play preinstalled.
The installers for Google Play don’t seem to work on these FNF tablets, which is why I haven’t reviewed the iFive Pro2 with this same chipset yet, that ROM lacks Play and I can’t get it to work no matter what. The iFive is currently only $94 with coupon FNFGB at Gearbest which is crazy low for a metal clad, 2048 x 1536 7.9″ Android 6.0 tablet.
I’ll update this post when I flash my own unit. The instructions are included inside the flasher download below! But iFive really need an OTA system to push out these updates instead of flashing it.
