just installed on one of my tp15h last night with the deleted moogoo bloatware.
First impression its fast! no more screen lag swipe between home screens, certain apps runs faster because of JB buffering. icons are much sharper.
can no longer hide the bottom bar even tho we have hard home and back keys (*&@#(*&#@&*(!!!!!!!
tho youtube and mx player can still open in full screen. but you cant hide it while running other apps or in the home screen like in ICS. I tried replacing the setting.apk and the framework.jar with the ICS one that give you a setting to hide the status bar, but its not compatible.

overall I think i will uprade all my tabs to jellybean.

BTW there are two hardware profile for the tp15 and tp15H
tp15 is a v775 board, when I open the case I had to resolder the speaker wires because its so thin and frail!
tp15h is the E11D board, IMO this is a better quality circuit board.

The latest version is 0.7b

http://www.techknow.t0xic.nl/forum/inde ... pic=4609.0

works flawlessly on the TP15

here's the new Uberoid tool 2.0 link

you'll need to download the following

WM8850_Universal_Uberoid_v0.7b_JB_4.1.1 firmware from this download mirror
http://hotfile.com/dl/190170341/05d96be ... et.7z.html

WM8850_FWC_FILES from the TechKnow forum
http://www.techknow.t0xic.nl/forum/inde ... ew;down=39

Make sure you have unzipped all the firmware and FWC files.. I placed them all on my desktop in their own default folders. installed the tool, ran it, and followed the instructions to the letter. Worked Perfectly on the TP15. if you have another model you can run the detection function and it will tell you whether or not your model is supported by their firmware.

I hope this information helps.

Not Sure if it will work with the TP12A

your best bet is to follow my post instructions and run the Detection Test to see if it is compatible with this ROM.. if its compatible it will tell you. if not it will tell you. and you don't actually flash the device with the detection test, it only determines if your tablet is compatible or not with the available JB rom.

If it IS compatible you can proceed to the next two steps in the tool and prepare an SD card to flash your device. BUT ONLY do this IF your tablet is in the list of compatible devices. Also if you find that your tablet is compatible with this ROM you will need to make sure you have the wmt_scriptcmd file sitting on the desktop with the ROM folder and FWC folder as I described in my previous post (I found the wmt_scriptcmd file in the download for the TP12A that was posted in another thread on this forum.


The direct link for the file download for the wmt_scriptcmd file is here, all you need to extract from the zip file is the wmt_scriptcmd file the rest can be ignored and trashed.
http://www.agptek.com/download/TP12A_Vi ... _V3000.zip.

if your tablet is in the compatible list, follow the 3 step process in the Tool, and when your done you have an SD card with the new JB 4.1 ROM ready to plug into your tablet and flash the ROM on the device. the Flashing process was pretty fast, mine was up and running in under 10 minutes.

Now with that.. If Anyone wants to know if this will work with their specific model, I suggest you download the files I mentioned and run a detection test for yourself. It will not harm your device to run the test, and again if it isn't the Tool WILL Tell YOU, so you don't have to worry about bricking your tablet with a ROM that isn't compatible.

New Version Released on March 1st, 2013

WM8850 JellyBean 4.1.1 Uberoid mod v1.0-HcH
http://www.techknow.t0xic.nl/forum/inde ... pic=5101.0

By the way guys.. If any of you do try this with your model tablet and are successful, POST to this thread with your model number so others will be able to figure out if their model tablet will or will not be compatible. (please be aware that although you may have a TP15H or TP12A, Not All models have the same system boards which can make a huge difference)

My TP15 HYA was recognized by the Uberoid Tool as a E11D_F_2ddr_512M board where as my TP15H GDB was recognized as a Mid7_8223_FT5302_Topsun_C0010 by the tool.

Didn't work. Hung at the jellybean boot screen. Appreciate the attempt though. :)

***update 5:45pm

Tried flashing again (probably 8th time) and success! Didn't have to time to play but appears to be working fine. I believe I've got hardware problems on my tablet so forget about the problems I've had.
