    I have a MID M729 tablet that currently has version 4.0.3 on it. What ROM do I need to upgrade to 4.2.2? My tablet is already rooted, so that won't be a problem, I'm just not sure how to tell if a ROM is compatible with my device or one that won't start telling me I have a Samsung phone. :)

    Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

    Welcome!


    Roms are very device specific, so you need to be absolutely sure its made for your device; or else you'll end up with a brick!

    That's what I was afraid of. So is there one for my device yet? Or is there a "universal" one? What makes the ROMs device specific?

    a lot of thing go into cooking up a custom rom. i'm no dev, but because most devices have different things added on top of the android os will make the rom specific to a specific device. each device has different system partitions as well.

    unfortunately, you have an off brand tablet so i doubt that you will find any rom support which basically mean you probably will not find any roms for you tablet.

    If a tablet has "MID" in it's name, you can very much guaranty there won't be a ROM upgrade for it.
