Is it possible to flash Android on a Flatfish?

Các bạn có thể cho tôi bộ rom cho Infocus flatfish này không. Tôi đã flash đầy đủ nhưng camera không hoạt động.

Mình có thể xin line rom của bạn. Cảm ơn!

Did you follow this instructions? Can you show me your media_codecs.xml ? Try to replace it with this one. This fill enable only CPU decoding you will have only SD video decoding. I have repo on my local PC for 4.4.4 but there is no time to spend over this project. In 4.4.4 I believe everything will works fine with hardware decoding :slight_smile:

My camera doesn’t work though I’ve installed many other applications. Please help

Has anybody tried this out lately and had more luck? I’ve got some time and was looking to flash mine to Android. Do we have a solution for the camera issue?

¡Hola @feer56!

I believe @etrapani might be more “in the know” here.

I will try and give this a go this weekend and see how it goes.



I got stuck as this file doesn’t seem to exist anymore.

Does anyone here happens to have a copy they could share?


Something happened with Firefox, a while ago, and I cannot see videos either. But now I see them with VLC or NewPipe Legacy.

I’ve been using it for a long time with Android 4.2. I built it and, to be honest, I don’t remember every step. I might give it a try with a newer Android version. For the camera, other applications work, no idea why the builtin app doesn’t. You can get one from Fdroid.

I’m still using this old Android ROM on my Flatfish device, and very happy that it gave a second life to this device. Many thanks to those wo worked on it.
It’s not perfect, but it’s suitable for all the use-cases I have.

An update would be great to have the latest security patches, and also because some apps start to be incompatible.

I don’t believe the newer version than 4.4 is possible for this hardware. Everything is limited by allwinner close source :slight_smile: I found 1 device with same hardware with android 4.4 Mixtile on which I made base for my work for porting 4.4 but last few years was quite dramatically for me and this project just waiting to be finished :slight_smile: Except the camera and hardware video acceleration everything more or less is working and is good enough for DD - I’m using my flatfish mainly for ebook reading.

¡Hola @Neo2SHYAlien!

I hope things are a bit less dramatic for you now and thanks for all of the work you’ve done here to keep the Flatfishes away from the e-waste.

¡Hola @yfdyh000, @etrapani!

Would you happen to know of a procedure to revert to Firefox OS from Android once it is flashed in the Flatfish? Is this even an option once Android is flashed into it?


This should not be a problem, if you have Firefox OS images for Flatfish.

¡Hola @yfdyh000!

I don’t think I have that one.

Do you know if these are still available online somewhere, please?


Hi Alex,

Thank you, more or less my situation is more stable than 1 year ago.
Actually before few weeks I purchased a new NVMe hdd for my PC and dowload 4.4.4 version but didn’t had a time to try to compile it.

Hola Alex,

Would you happen to know of a procedure to revert to Firefox OS from
Android once it is flashed in the Flatfish? Is this even an option once
Android is flashed into it?

Yes, I haven’t tried it, but I see no reason why you couldn’t flash the
original FirefoxOS image.

Out of curiosity, why would you want to do that?

Thanks for keeping the files up folks!

I’ve successfully flashed my device using these instructions.

Any idea on how I would go about replacing media_codecs.xml?

Also, which camera app did you use from Fdroid?

Thanks :slight_smile:


Latest android for A31 would be 4.4, I can’t see anything newer around
It looks we could run debian on this allwinner tab https://
And probably UT could run too. Did anyone try?
