Ugoos UT3/UT3S/UM3 firmware v 0.3 with Linux released!

Hello. We are pleased to announce the release of the new version firmware with Linux. Firmware  is available for owners Ugoos  UT3, UT3S and UM3 devices.

Now we use new method for building firmware. This will speed up the process of development of new firmware and will improve their quality.   Linux part firmware based on Ubuntu 14.10 with XFCE. For Android part using latest official firmware v2.0.6
Especially for our devices, we have developed software that will allow you to control the hardware parts of the device. "uSettings"  for all devices and "HDMI IN" for Ugoos UT3 devices.

uSettings  designed specifically for  UT3, UT3S and UM3 devices.  It will allow you to control the fan, led and HDMI input.

Application "HDMI IN"  will allow owners Ugoos UT3   switch the image source manually.

In the current kernel is enabled support of NFS and include binfmt_misc module. binfmt_misc module allow using virtualization to run binary files with other architectures. For example you can run skype on your device. For using virtualization you need first install special software. 

In current firmware we include latest available user space GPU driver for fb. Unfortiently in the current time driver for X11 not available. But you can use this driver if you need OpenCL for example. To check the libraries we used examples from official Mali OpenCL SDK and Mali OpenGL ES SDK for Linux (

Change list:
1.Linux:  Add special Ugoos applicatios in linux:

- App for switching image source to HDMI IN port (for UT-3)
- App for led, hdmi in and fan settings

7. Linux:  All packages was been updated to the actual state
8. Dualboot: Android firmware was been updated to Ugoos firmare v2.0.6

Bug fix:

1. Linux: Temporarily disabled support of 4k resolution in linux kernel. Maximal resolution 1920x1080.

    I bought the product "Ugoos UT3S version 4GB / 32GB" that came with the firmware v2.0.5B (I have not tested this version with no file) and as soon as I connected it asked me to update (OTA) to the v2.0.6 version . After upgrading am about to try some video and audio file with the result that does not play any sound. I tried searching the original version (V.2.05b) because as I see more people on forums have been the same but can not find. I've also tried putting on the version DualBoot android + Linux Ubuntu but I have not managed to install it. Could you put a video on how to upgrade to version DualBoot? Could you get on your official website version (V 2.0.5b for Ugoos UT3S 4bGB / 32GB supposedly has no sound errors) and an explanation for fools as updated correctly ?. Is that right now I have a device that helps me to little by not issuing any audio. My preference series have a DualBoot with the new version but the sound work correctly.

    You can find our new Android firmware 2.0.8 in download section, or by the OTA, Sir. All sound bugs fixed.
