Hi

I recently bought a MID 7" ePad with VIA WM8505/533MHz, 256 MB RAM, 2 GB Flash.

When I start it, it shows me WMT 2.1.2_105 in the boot screen. When I talk to my supplier, he said it is running Android 2.1. However when I go to "About Device" Menu it shows me following information.

Firmware version: 1.6
Kernal version: 2.6.29-00236-g4f8dbbb-dirty
Build number: WMT2.1.2_105

Can someone kindly clarify me the following issues I have.

1. I'm confused with the Android version I'm running on this device. Is it 2.1 as supplier say or is it 1.6 ?

2. What is this build number? According to my current understanding, it is the ROM firmware.

3. Since I have WMT2.1.2_105, do you recommend me to update to further WMT versions such as WM2.2.

4. With my current WMT 2.1.2_105, is it possible for me to update to Android 2.1 or 2.2 (frodo) OS ? If so, could you kindly provide me some guidance.


Best Regards,

Neo

Hello boys ,

I have bought a generic tablet MID made in china - Android 1.6 - wmt2.1.2_105
It worked well first. Then I tried to dim the brightness in order to save battery and could not see anything afterwards, it went completely dark.

i tried a custom firmware for the item CVUK-PC06-2GEN from site based on wmt2.1.1_105.
I put it on a micro-SD (in FAT32) but I only got the following message:
"Prepare software package ..." then nothing else happens.
i format my SD card with ''HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool'', and it 'not work, the same message!!!
"Prepare software package ..." then nothing else happens.


Do you have any solution to solve this problem?

Thank you!

P.S. Sorry if I post this in the wrong place.
