Dandel;44354]Actually, on we are better off with the Mali 200 and Mali 400 chip... The android platform uses Linux, and the Linux platform driver for these are released under gpl. And anyways... Here you go... An easy place to download the driver:[url=http://www.malideveloper.com/developer-resources/drivers/index.php, said:

Yes, the main update is that Augen's website is no longer available. However this is no big deal. I just checked out the latest Telechips release on their open source website. On August 22nd, The new Linux kernel release ( 2.6.35 ) includes the sources to the Mali kernel driver, and the Gingerbread source file that was released on the same date includes webkit, alsa-util, alsa lib, and the source to the Telechips multimedia encoder/decoder for omx.

So what does that mean for the Gentouch? are we going to be able to get froyo or gingerbread?

That means that it will take a highly skilled developer to fix the tablet from here.
In short, Yes.
As for the long explanation, One will need to take the GPL source for the linux kernel version 2.6.29 and modify the source on that kernel. It'll be tricky because you need to first make a configuration that best matches the functionality of the tablet ( Hence the need of a skilled developer that owns the tablet). The next step after the new kernel is booting is to get the basic functionality working ( Touchscreen, buttons, usb otg port, and backlight ). After the basic functionality is working, move to the Froyo/Gingerbread source code, and repeat the previous steps. After Froyo/Gingerbread are partially working it is a matter of getting the rest of the functions working from the previous install, and then to get features that are not working in froyo/gingerbread that the tablet supports working. The rest of the steps is up to the developer, but just getting to this point takes a lot of time and work. This also ignores the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich ) porting ( if it's even possible ).
