Looks like you have a OoTB Eken and with the original firmware, just the same as the one I got from ebay myself.As to updating the OS, you will need to download a ROM (in the download section) for the Eken M001 and have a SD card handy.There a 3 options as for the firmware, the offical Eken release and 2 customized ones - Ecotoc 1.1.1 or Slartedroid 1.3, I will get a link for the details but its really very simple and easy to do.As for Marketplace you will be lucky of it works and downloads apps, the Eken doesnt need to be a phone to download apps.A good atternative to Marketplace is Slideme, google ot and then download the install file on your Eken - easy and no fuss.Rog.
