The successor of my Simplistica mod is here! I went a bit ego, and named it PhoenixMod :D
It features a lot of things, I can't even list them all!

Mods:
- Removed Urbetter *oops
- Rooted
- Fixed up busybox - fresher, better version ;)
- Fixed keyboard
- Fixed urbetter stuff (most of the scripts was totally f*cked up)
- Added some of my little stuff (bootsplash, bootanimation, and a few little customization)
- Modified module loading a bit
- Modified device name, fingerprint, etc
- Brand new installscript what writes out device info, and flashes the system based on that - faster and more reliable than the old *shiny Urbetter one!
- Added a few extensions (AppWidgetPicker as an example)
- Launcher can be selected (read below how)

Installation:
Install as any other ROM: extract the ZIP to the external SD card, and boot while holding the Menu button.
[0728]
After installation, when you first boot, the kernel modules WILL NOT load. So, to go around this, flip the on-off switch, then power on the device again. You will have it fully functional!

Selecting patches:
In this release, you can freely select patches, based on what you need. The patches can be found under update/patches. Just remove the tar.gz file of the function you don't need, like Bluetooth, GPS, 3G connection. I suggest to leave Google Apps and Common apps there, as they include some applications you may need!

MARKET FIX:
In the last two releases of the Urbetter firmware, they've added a buggy Android Market 3.0, what did not let us download many of the apps. To fix this, I've replaced this market with an older version. To have it fixed, replace the old google_apps_patch.tgz with the new, uploaded one, and flash the firmware as usual.

Selecting Launcher:
[only from 0728]
The installer selects the launcher from the available set, and grabs the selection from a text file. This file is called launcher.inf, and can be found under the update folder. To select the launcher, type the folder name of the wanted installer into it. ONLY ONE LINE CAN BE ADDED!!!
The launchers' folders are under update/launcher, select one and type in it's name into the file.

You can easily add your own launcher too. The folders under update/launcher are simply made, just create a new folder in update/launcher, name it, then treat it as root. So, you have to add a folder system, and a folder app in it, then add the Launcher apk to this folder (so your final path will be update/launcher/[launcher name]/system/app/[launcher apk])

Here at least you're doing something interesting in your Rom. We are all engaged in routine work. Maybe you want to do and cyanogen, while Asure on vacation?

Sadly can't, it's too high-level for me, but I'm trying to help out the kernel development first ;)

Noticed the rotate menu transition animations are still in there. Already modded the framework to the slide animations. Want it? :)

Why not ... Can you do the battery as a percentage, too?

I don `t know what kind of partition is the cache, and a system. But I will say the partition sizes on the order of placement

For 8gb:
1. 212520 sectors
2. 3243520 sectors
3. 273240 sectors
4. 11678418 sectors

For 16gb:
1. 204800 sectors
2. 2990000 sectors
3. 262144 sectors
4. 27212448 sectors

1 sector = 512 bytes

First and foremost, thank you so much for this. I'm very excited to see a tablet running without Urbetter mucking it up, and I've been watching the progress in the kernel section.
Though I notice that there are some things that you would already like to improve, namely the 15% annoyance notification. As a casual user, would it be better for me to wait till you tweak and re-release it tomorrow/in two days, or flash this one now and simply enjoy?
Either way, cheers man! Thanks!

my advice is to flash and enjoy i have, and its amazingly bug free and stable its a great firmware and takes 5mins to flash with an update.

note: change the brand from urbetter please. Dont like seeing that on their.

You can flash it for sure, the next "release" will be a simple update for this, what does not need 80MB+ download ;) But it will wipe data!
I will NOT change the current device info, as this device IS a Urbetter UTV210! Maybe I could try Samsung, but I don't really want. Stick with the original naming ;)

Are you sure it's correct? The system mounts are the following:

mmcblk0p1 - /sdcard
mmcblk0p2 - /cache
mmcblk0p3 - /data
mmcblk0p4 - rootfs (/)

So basically, you've created an approx. 100MB sdcard, a huge cache, a 100MB data and a HUUUGE system partition? Or your order is totally off?

I'm sure. I described the physical order of placement on the card sector. Exactly the same order partitions in the standard sd_mbr.dat. But the fourth partition - sdcard, and the second - data. On the other partitions, I don `t know
