Android 4.4 Omni ROM released for FAEA F2S


faea f2s omni rom

FAEA might have gone all shy on us when it comes to hardware, but they still have a team working on software. The latest release being Ommi ROM based on Android 4.4 Kitkat!

For FAEA to release Omni ROM on their quad-core, 1080 smartphone is pretty amazing achievement and an exciting time for FAEA and MTK phone users. It is widely known that Mediatek aren’t to fond of having the latest os ported to their older tech, and go so far as to keep source code away from developers to prevent new ROMs being produced.

Late last year FAEA decided to fight back by releasing source code and putting together a group of developers to work on ROM such as CyanogenMod and Omni ROM.

    It’s time to have a new great phone line with 6592/95 cpu, Faea F3, F4? 🙂

    I like that FAEA are focusing on improving their F2S instead of hurrying to release an octa core phone.

    No gpu test, no benchmark test …

      Omnirom is in a WIP, we have no hwcomposer so no hardware acceleration so why running benchmarks ?

    Re the next FAEA model, pls ask them to include the WCDMA 900/2100 frequency 🙂

      The Faea F2S has WCDMA 900/2100 support

        If so they just forgot to tell a “waiting list” customer about it – they have previously returned my money after changing the specification…

    What i don’t get is why has MTK’s latest chipset (MT6592) not received android 4.4? Surely holding back to OS version does not benefit mediatek in anyway

    • March 14, 2014

      It does if we have to buy the latest phone with the next Mediatek processor in just to get the latest OS

        Yeah but it will impact sales of the MT6592 because people like me who want up to date software wont want to buy phone without the latest OS version. Basically alienating a load of potential customers. Don’t see qualcomm or other chipset manufacturers using this bizarre strategy.
