Sorry for my delayed response, have not been able to log on to Slatedroid for a while because of the server errors.When I flashed my v1 apad I didn't know it was a v1 because the seller had stated it had a camera (he has now updated the webpage) I thought I had a v2 pad. I thought that it was a firmware error that the camera did not work. So I went on flashing firmwares but I could not make the camera work. Then I took a look at the camera hole and there were no camera inside thus realizing that it was a v1?I had problems with the stock firmware that the unit came delivered with. It had problems waking up from sleep, random reboots and shutdowns, force closes etc. So I tried flashing hellomerangs v0.2 and the problems went away. I then went on to test his Archos v0.1 but found the wakeup issues to be annoying, but it worked fine. Then I tried rogerbrauns test 3 which fixed the fullscreen issues, I really liked that firmware but it also has the problem of having to press menu button many times to wakeup the unit. So I went back to hellomerangs v0.2 which is the most stable for me. As I mostly use my apad for reading ebooks, pdfs and web browsing and not play games I dont really need the full screen and dont mind the info bar on top. The quick wakeup is more important to me. I find this to be the best firmware for my use. Having root is also nice. Anything more you want to know?
