The Cube U30GT2 is a 10 inch tablet with a 1920 x 1200 pixel display and a speedy Rockchip RK3188 quad-core processor. It’s probably one of the best ten inch tablets available for $269 or less… although it suffers from less than stellar WiFi range.
When Cube launched the tablet in March it loaded the device with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. But now you can install Android 4.2 on the Cube U30GT2.
Not only does this allow you to run Google’s latest software on the Cube tablet, it shows that the manufacturer is continuing to support the device. We’ve already seen a couple of firmware updates for the Cube U30GT2 in the two months that it’s been available.
Android 4.2 brings an improved keyboard, enhanced notifications, and other improvements to the tablet.
Unfortunately the software update doesn’t seem to have done anything to improve WiFi performance on my review unit. While I have no problem connecting to the internet when I’m relatively close to the a router, the tablet doesn’t stay connected to the router on my first floor when I’m in my third floor office.
The steps for installing the Android 4.2 update are pretty much the same as for loading previous updates. You can follow our guide for loading drivers for the tablet on a Windows PC and using the Rockchip Batch Tool to install a firmware update. Just use the newest ROM instead of an earlier version.
