Am i the one and only owner of this super cheap monster. 119$ shipped Allwinner a10 1gb ram 8 gb int, capacitive gamers pad( so its being called)
Antutu score of 3094 using stock 12/23 firmware. I may try to put ployers software(ics) on it as i am confident the machines are nearly identical(momo 9 has less ram). We need a forum for this machine please.

I'd like to hear more about this fine device... To me it looked a lot like the Momo9 did as compared to the N7A. I'm sure people are going to find it a great alternative, and it did not get a late start. It's essentially the same as the elf, but a good bit less...

Does it have a hi-def 1024x600 screen or is it using the 800x480? The real kicker on the Elf is not just the Ram but the higher-res screen. If it also has the hi-res screen and is that price, that is quite the device indeed.

The G2 is lower resolution 800x480. Currently i am running 1224 with jet rom update. 3.4.4 market but many apps are missing. 1224 uses 1ghz not 1.2 and is more stable for me. Can anyone open the full market, ie the one my herotab c8 displays? It may be in the build prop as i noticed its using the droid platform i believe


The only firmware available is 2.3.4 but from 115.com and google translate, the 3rd ics testing group is about to be started. Ics beta 1&2 were only given to a select few and were not released publically. As for the buil.prop, i will post a copy later and perhaps it can be figured out. I did try using a gt-p1000 build.prop from a prox32 rom but got stuck in a boot loop both times.
One thing i do like is its easy as pie to put apps on from my computer. Place them in the sd card(internal), then use root explorer to copy them where they belong.:-
Oh and you can get the machine for 103$ if you order 20 from volumerates.com. thats where i purchased it from on the 13 of jan and received 31 of jan. No i dont work there either:-)

Build number 97F1-D1-H2-M01-1343.20111224
Kernal 2.6.36-android Inet_dada@InetSoftware #43

Does the build number look familiar with ployer fatesausage? This is 2.04 baseband.

Lordbm, a very good dev is waiting for one also:-) :-) :-)

Yeah, Lordbm has like every allwinner tablet ever made evidently... The Ployer Momo9s that I've had have 97F2, which I believe also indicates the board used in the system. I'd just try out different scripts around here for market, since the display hasn't changed that much the script I made for 2.04 probably works pretty good, and will improve your battery life... The great thing about the Ployer Momo9 is not the board so much as the network card, glass and batteries (iphone batteries), at least that's what a lot of people have pointed out on this board.

Go for it, I haven't tested it, but some of the biggest issues come from the display, and since that hasn't changed, it's likely not an issue. Below is the direct link, the link in my signature has several links in it, and one of them is for the 2.04 mod... Let me know if you have issues.

97f1 board is the momo9c from what i can find. Denzien under momo 9 audio sync prob using the 97f1 board upgraded 4.0.1. Gives me confidence as i may try to ics my G2 later tonight.

OK ployer 4.0.1 boots no problem, touchscreen works, camera works, but the capacitive buttons on the face do not work. perhaps the n7a software will do better or the ly f1. but for now i have a working 4.0 G2

I have also bought this tablet(gemei g2).Will gemeitech release android 4.0 for this tablet?
Note:We can also use ly-f1 tablets ics rom for android 4.0.It's nearly same with our tablets only different thing is ram.

Gemeitech has ics currently in beta 3, but not publically released. meanwhile p76ti 4.0.1 boots and all works except front buttons, and someone over at ployer forum has the front buttons working on his, looking for that fix now.
the only problem is a lack of internal space as the partitions are messed up. otherwise, the 4.0.1 scored 3090 antutu, no changes, running at 1ghz.

Also, tried to load ainol n7a 4.0.3 and it loaded no prob, just no touchscreen!!!!!!
So, at this point i feel its safe to flash any a10 firmware without "BRICKING" my machine for good.

for 119$, i am happy as a pig in sh*t.
i have started a new thread, and if the lazy mods can get off their butts, we need a forum.

i have modded my copy and have working youtube app, but no flash. I have read that a flash 10.3 version works in opera browser

pretty amazed that my lesser skills allowed me to do this prior to some other, much smarter devs. as for now, im happy. next its time to remove some useless junk and gain batt life for this machine.

STABILITY--- FINALLY. All firmware from Gemeitech, are crap to this point, and they should be reading this post and taking notes. Sgs touchscreen booster resolves G2 drift problem. and my machine has not crashed/restarted once since doing this. Gemei firmware does constantly.

Am also a Gemei G2 holder and I seriously have no idea about modding or rooting or the firmware stuff, although I know i'd catch up soon. I'd be glad if @thaigir you would help me set up my tablet with cool stuff as well :) first although I wanna root it so I can put a proxy fix, I am in University with proxy and there is no freaking way to set it up over wifi in Android 2.3. Also can you tell me how exactly did you get the Android OEM driver for this tablet? My windows 7 doesnt detect, what do I need to do?

The A10 has most of it's base bootloader in BROM on the cpu, so it's next to impossible to truly *brick* a device based on this chip.
The only thing i find that it is really missing is fastboot support. makes it very hard to test new kernels, and quick fixes.

After Recovering sys_config1.fex from my G2, and comparing it to the momo9c .fex, we probably will have much better luck with the ployer roms than those of ainol, as the hardware is almost identically configured.

biggest differences are


GEMEI G2                 Momo9C
--------------------------------------------
[dram_para]              [dram_para]

dram_clk = 456           dram_clk = 408
dram_io_width = 8        dram_io_width = 16
dram_size = 1024         dram_size = 512
dram_emr1 = 4            dram_emr1 = 0

[csi0_para]
csi_stby_mode = 1        csi_stby_mode = 0
csi_mname_b = "gt2005"   csi_mname_b = ""
csi_vflip_b = 0          csi_vflip_b = 1

@toxicpsion


You are correct in both posts.

What firmware are you using? Official 4.0.1 base 4 is posted in OFW forum for G2. Minor bugs.

@wassenhorn, have you tried the free proxy application?

i don't think that i'd call the bugs in 4.0.1 minor, at least not on my device, mostly sticking with 2.3.4 - 1223 for now, but i'm very intrigued by the u-boot in 4.0.1 (/dev/block/nanda), as it still has most of the fastboot bits intact. think i might have a 2.6.36 non-android kernel built too.. still testing tho.
