I'm using this build for 2 weeks and it's great in terms of speed and responsiveness. The only problems i have are similar as in previous posts:
- camera - force stop
- market - not all apps out there (eg. google maps)

Please, let me know if someone find a solution for camera (would be nice for video calls in Fring :)

Hi , I had same problem for google maps and solved with :

This is the market fix procedure (copy-pasted from somewhere else in the forums):

Open Android Market and then Click on Home (launcher)

Go to Settings->Applications->Manage->Running
- Click Market
- Then Clear Cache (NOT CLEAR DATA!!!!)
- Then Force Stop
- Click Google Services Framework
- Click Clear Data
- Click Force Stop

Open Android Market (it will error this is GOOD!)

Shutdown and Restart the tablet
- Wait for Wireless to Kick In
- Wait for System to Finish Loading

Open Android Market
- If it opens without an error GREAT!
- If it opens with the same error... give it a couple minutes or multiple tries at opening (it will go through)

Thanks, works great. Seems that earlier i clicked "Clear data" instead of "Clear cache". Now the only issue is the camera...

Dear Roger,

Any update on the next version of Singularity? Eken has just uploaded the new version on their firmware and also divided it into two different sub-mobels for the M008S - type 1 and type 2 (whatever that means). Will you be creating an updated firmware as well based on this new release, seeing as the old one has frame and buffer issues with the camera? Hope you can give us a new updated version of the Singularity firmware - looking forward to it personally! Keep up the good work!

Thanks!

Bhav.


Hello

I emailed Eken about the two versions of their M008S firmware.
This was their answer:

Hello Sir

Thanks for your email.

FOr your letter, please make sure your tablet was made by EKEN. And please tell me what problem does your tablet. If it does not have problem, please don't update your tablet. Thanks a lot!

Best Regards

Hi all!
I use Eken M008S about 3 days on Singularity firmware. And I think this firmware is the best.
But I have a problem beside camera crashes. I have very low wifi signal even near the wifi spot.
From 10 meters from wifi router, behind the wall, pad can't see the wifi network and lost connection. Laptop shows signal quality about 80% from the same point.
How I can improve my wifi module sensitivity? Is there any engineering mode or something?

Thanks.

I find only beta2 firmware for my M008S pad on Rogers website. So maybe you tells about M009s FINAL v4 firmware? It will be great if this firmware is able to run on M008S too, because if it is, we have very big chances to run M009s v5 firmware on our M008s. I try this firmware on M009s and it's great. Very quick and stable!!

Which option did you choose for M008S pad in changer script?

I have emailed eken group to ask about the firmware for M008S (1.2.3 model 1 and model 2)among other questions, here is their reply :

Dear Mohanad elnokali ,
Thank you for your email. This is Zoe Huang from Eken.

As to the 9.7" android 2.2 M008S tablet:
1) Android market is installed
2) Arabic language is supported by it
3) The difference lies in the camera driver. 1.2.3 model 1 is the older version, and our later products will be 1.2.3 model 2.
If you are interested in other tablets or any question, please contact me freely.

If you need the price list, i will send it to you next time.
Waiting for your news.

So i was wondering if Mr. Roger built his singularity based on the older version ? maybe this is why the camera driver is not properly working ? this is only a mere guess ..
One more thing.. could anyone please just point out how i could install this ROM because i am a complete newbie :(

hello Mr. Roger Calver, i tried the eken M008s factory firmware part 2 to my m008s tablet, the camera is now working great. but the tablet is too slow unlike the singularity beta v2 is fast.. maybe you can modified again the factory firmware part2 to make it much faster like the singularity beta v2... thank you..

Hi,

I Checked my tablet and confirmed that I have an M008s one (Hopefully)

I flashed this rom successfully but get a continuous SINGULARITY loading screen....

When I try to go back to the original EKEN firmware, I get a continuous blue LOADING... Screen (for a long time)

What can I do to fix this

Thanks

well al you have to do is download the new eken m008s firmware 1.5.1 version in eken group website and it will gonna do just fine but that is not yet rooted, and i dont know if it can be root also.. format first your micro sd card unrar the files and copy to your sd card off your tablet insert your sd card then on your tablet then the installation will start and wait untill yhe notification says remove your sd or something like that.. then remove the card and the tablet will reboot itself and there you go.. even its a stock firmware its fast also but not rooted.. dont forget to delete the file before inserting to your tablet... ok good luck.. hope it help.. oh by the way if after you finish install the firmware to your tablet and if the touchscreen is not functioning replace the env_Uboot in the Firmware> env folder... replace it with slatedroid singularity m008s beta v2 env_Uboot.. just copy the env_Uboot and paste it in the env. folder of the original from eken and its gonna work fine..
