Hello. Has anyone had any experience with this tablet? I am thinking about buying this for my little girl, an upgrade from her Aurora2. I don't want to get it if there isn't any support out there.

this Device is new and you won't see anything for awhile. Action CPUs are good but the GPU lacks performance but for media purposes it's fine. i have the Vido N70HDAC which has it's ups and downs but with more Firmware releases things will improve (mainly the GPU Driver in the Firmware needs to be improved as there are some bugs in Graphic detailed rendering in some games and some games with Touch control are faulty). despite these little issue i can say the Actions ATM7029 CPU is good for someone just for watching Video and minor *Low-End Gaming.

again, keep in mind these Devices that have the Action CPUs are new and Firmware for these Device with this CPU aren't quite ready for the Average User BUT i do believe companies are fixing these issues

i suggest a Allwinner A31 Tablet. they run better then the Actions CPU (mainly due to better source code for the the companies) which equals better Firmware. also, the RK3188 CPU isn't bad either

I will look into the allwinner. The rockchip is still too expensive for my needs. My little girl doesn't play very intense games at all but I have had enough tablets to know how important custom roms are. Thanks for the info.

you are very welcome. though, i have just looked into some new Firmware for the Ainol Novo7 Venus and yes they have improved performance for the GC1000 GPU regarding 3D gaming and such. interesting to see comments on this new Firmware. still waiting for company Vido to release similar Firmware for my N70HDAC

again, i think the Allwinner A31 will suit your daughters needs :)

Well I purchased one of these for my daughter (too inexpensive to pass). It came rooted which is nice because they load Chinese apps on it. Unfortunately, I changed the build.prop to show the location in the US and not China and now it is bricked. I have talked to the seller (who has been great) but they cannot get the system ROM from Ainol since the tablet is new. I was going to send it back but shipping to China is so high I might as well get a new tablet instead. I will just wait until a ROM is released or created for the Dream and give it to one of my other daughters for a birthday or something. I can get it to boot into recovery so I don't foresee any problems one a ROM is released.

The one day I was able to use the tablet seemed to be ok. I tried to run the test program citadel but it was horrible. For the kings of games and movies my kids have, it will work fine.

So now I get to shop for a different 8-inch tablet. I might go with the novo 8 discovery, but perhaps I should try a different chip set (although some places I read say the discovery has the A31 with bluetooth).

Thanks for the link. Unfortunately, the download will not complete. I have tried several times. I sent the link to the vendor in China and asked her to download the ROM and then send it to me.

Is there anyone who has found custom software for the Dream 8 ? I'm aware of the ROM available at this thread but the tab is still laggy.

Any info will be appreciated.
