diabetu: Bummer. I was really hoping TS would finally work. I'm out of ideas. All the required files are there.

eltdesign: Eken stock firmware, Modroid, Uberoid and Singularity all work on the 7" netbooks. (as does linux) :)

loco72: Chances are slim, but with any flashing, bricks are possible. I've flashed back and forth from android to wince a few times with no issues however.

And everybody else having problems with filefactory, wait until they are less overloaded. I only get 2gb of data a month on my phone (tethering) and i can't afford to upload it again. Sorry.

Cheers

@tink: Thanks for the mirror! :drinks:

@lostminty: Glad it unbricked it. As for make/model.. any 7" wm8650 really.

Also found out touch screen DOES indeed work in v2 on tablets. See this forum post: http://www.techknow....g13791#msg13791

In v2 I included the toudou app which is a chinese youtube-like site. The UI is in chinese but just type what you want in the search box and the results come back in english. Video streamed ok and in decent quality. Otherwise the other solution for wince youtube is get coreplayer (not tcpmp). It has youtube search/player built into it but only seems to work if you choose low res 3gp for quality.

Any chance of creating a dual boot rom to boot either android of WinCE? Unfortunately still have some WinCE apps that I can't find equivalent of in Android.

Since pc_user didn't like the fact that i modified his firmware (which was the only firmware i found googling for months btw) back to english from russian, added some software and removed the warez, etc i have decided to upload a new wince6 firmware. It's based on the stock "smartbook" firmware so it's no longer a mod of a mod. The chinese software was removed other than Tudou (which is like youtube because the youtube app no longer works), softmaker office pirated version removed, and i added a bunch of "free and legal" software. I left every language pack in it which supports chinese, dutch, english, french, german, italian, japanese, korean, portuguese, russian, spanish and swedish. It's basically the same as the above linked version with minor differences. Oh, and touch screen might actually work in this version for tablets. I no longer have my wm8650 tablet to test, however the calibrate screen shows up on first boot, the touch screen dll's are in \windows, and i added UTK to the scriptcmd for touchscreen. I'd be interested to know if it works now or not.

Hello Wicknix

I downloaded this version from the Internet: "X6-7V_7in-Netbook_WM8650_CE6.0.rar" and fits perfectly ... I downloaded your version (wm8650-netbook-wince6-v2.zip) and install it (reboot-restart), obvious that your version is better ... Solution? Please help me!!! :)

Here is the Windows Compact Embedded 7 firmware that came with my Sylvania netbook, it may be helpful for someone. I've used it a couple times to fix corrupted firmware.
Project: Emulators for WM8650. Includes GNUBoySDL (Gameboy/Gameboy Color), gpFCE (NES/Famicom), and PicoDrive (Genesis/Megadrive & Sega/Mega CD).

Hi,

Is there any way to add Internet Connection Sharing to this rom? I think it needs some dlls and registry keys such as IPNAT.DLL etc?

Alternatively, has anyone got an Android ROM that supports ICS between the WLAN and LAN adapters - I think Iptables, iptables_nat and masquerade would be needed?

Any linux builds for the WM8650 that have this functionality?

Many thanks,


GadgetRob
