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.



Im being kind about the bugs!!! Its interesting how firmwares adapt to individual machines.
Although periodic slow internet, crashing apps, and other bugs are annoying, I found factory 12/23[original, not 1/12 version] to be unstable with 20+ crashes/restarts in 24 hrs. 12/24[wifi optimizzation] seemed to be the best 2.3.4 for my use.

Can the fastboot be applied to gingerbread?
I am in contact with the closed beta group currently testing the latest firmware and as soon as it hits my machine, I will pass it along. From what i gather, it is coming along nicely and we should have Official 4.0.3 soon.
Not sure of your skill[no offense meant] but devs and tinkerers are needed to optimize this tablet.
As far as the custom kernel, what improvements will it bring?
I own a haipad m7[herotab,dropad] and have seen amazing development using the 2.6.35.7[both honeycomb and ics working]

Sorry for my poor English, but I don't speak it very well...
Yours links don't work. Probably a bad copy and paste.

You can try this for ICS 4.0.3Demo + Livesuite:

One more question! I live in Spain, and the charger i'm sure don't runs properly in my plug. When you conect the usb cable to the computer, the tablet recharging his battery like others Android mobile??

Thanks again!!

So far I am very happy and the only complaints come from firmware. I think the machine is well worth the money, and only needs developers to increase rom performance.

Thanks, thaigir!!

My tablet i think come with Gigerbread OS version installed. Do you have installed ICS version? I read in this forum that the last version of Android have some bugs yet. But, in Gingerbread, have any important bug yet?? or really runs more fast and without important bugs??

@Bovirtual,

The Tablet comes stock with 2.3.4 Gingerbread. Bugs are there. Biggest complaints are screen drift[cured with SGS touchscreen booster], and crashes/restarts at random.

Different users have wide vaariances in firmware, but currently I am running ICS 4.0.3 with bugs, but I have found a happy medium, where my machine doesnt crash, even Overclocked to 1.2ghz
Performance wise, 2.3.4 much better with games and antutu benchmark.

ICS 4.0.1 beta 2 is the best working version with less bugs, but you may have different results. Amon[another member] and I have had much different results on the same firmware.

Thaigir99, i´ve installed today the SGS touchscreen booster. Wich configuration is the best for the Gemei?? With all default parameters is runs ok?? or is better modify one of them??

Other question, have you modified capacitive points?? the tablet runs better if i down the number from 5 to other more little??

Thanks in advance!

Hi, currently I have my Gemei G2 installed with 2.3.4 (1223) and Tun.ko Installer 1.6 app from the market. It works perfect with OpenVPN.
Unfortunately, after I tried the latest 2.3.4 and 4.0.3 firmwares, Tun.ko Installer complained there is no compatible tun.ko found in its repository.
Has anyone succeeded installing Gemei G2 with ICS 4.0.3 and a working tun.ko to let OpenVPN work? Or, is it possible to dig out a working tun.ko from others' ICS 4.0.3 firmwares?

Thanks,
