There are the thread for Tornado firmwares:

How to update:
1) Back up your important files before upgrading.
2) Download novo7_tornados_0518.rar and decompress it to TF card root directory. The decompressed files should under TF card root directory and the TF card must be fat32 format.
3) Insert the TF card into the device and keep the tablet off with more than 30% battery. Charging is not recommended during updating.
4) Hold-Press the -Volume and power button for four seconds at the same time. Release the buttons when upper left screen corner shows green instruction.
5) Updating process is automatically and the tablet will be off or restart itself if the updating is success.
6) It takes a little long to start the tablet for the first time.Don't stop process or restart the tablet immediately, it is better to restart 5-10 minutes later.
7) The firmware has been rooted. DON'T use third party apps to root the tablet or replace busybox.
8) Anti-virus, optimization or safe apps are not necessory for the tablet.

Has anyone found any drivers to get this to work with Windows (XP preferably)? I would like to start messing with the Tornado I just got but Windows wants drivers before I can start doing ADB or firmware. Thanks.

There are a few options here just make sure you load up all files. Dont know if you can do atthe same time i did mine seperatley.

Had trouble with 5/26 though changed my device name to a Samsung something and kept getting a force close on the google search bar/widget.

Hope that helps.

Hello..i don't use daily tornados, and more precisely i don't use google search (do you mean the bar?)
I know that this feiyu mod have bugs, but in future will be updated and optimized

With feiyu mod play store is complete, applanet is a non perfect legal app :)

Thanks for your help.

I assume it must be unzipped first and also I cant find an APK file in the package?

As i assume thats what you want to put in the app folder?

No its only 2 point

Some suppliers say 2 and others 5.

Thats the problem with Chinese supplier is that some don't seem too concerned about the accuracy of their specs.

This is really embarrassing.. I hope that they'll fix this with a new kernel or firmware or something, then we all be good. And our tab seems to have a lot of compatibility issues when it comes to games (especially Gameloft). Thanks anyways

Go to the start of thread and follow instructions though on mine 0526 was not automatic you have to search via volume to find on your sd card once you have done the hold volume+ and power hold sequence. Also i need to install the fix for the google search already in this thread.

Let me know if you need any more help.

I dont know how this goes with gamesloft etc but ill have a look later.

Will install Play Store

Hi im not sure which games you want to run and i dont play a lot of games but the 05/26 Feiyu Mod on my machine runs Temple Run Texas Holdem 2 and GT Free seem to go ok. But im far from a serious gamer.

Maybe this tablet has some problems with compatability but with this mod i have none yet (apart from not having Thai language support)but i think it is important to remember it cost less than $100 so its a bit much to expect it to perform like a Transformer Prime!

Cheers

Also with this mod there are no chinese apps but if you want to use 05/18 No Bloat from the market will remove but i suggest freeze first to make sure the machine does not need them though my testing showed they could all be removed

allwinner mod? seems to be interesting. If that's the solution for enabling us to play incompatible games, I'm giving it a go.

Hoping for a mod for enabling 5 point multitouch from ainol or someone though.

yes it works perfect... i use ainol novo tornado orginal rom.. and installed allwinner mod to make tablet as galaxy s2... i tested.. it really works.. after time i installed chainfire because some games have problem (white screen).. i sat gpu as povervr.. and most games works perfect... im sorry friend.. tornado havent 5 point multi touch screen.. it have two point multi touch... i think need to change screen to make five point multi touch..


i tested new games today.. backstab hd and shadow gun.. thats all works perfect.. just use allwinner mod to change build.pro and use chainfire..
