it seems like this is the M002 , normally there is a indication of M002. Also there is a phrase of : "Communication: LAN: External Fast 10 / 100 Mbps Ethernet Adapter; " normally that's not included with the m002

Looks like an M002 to me too. The ethernet blah blah line is probably just saying you can get some sort of external ethernet adapter for it. Probably not widely available and we all know that half of the specs they list on these devices are worthless anyway.

Thank you [IMG]http://www.slatedroid.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley.gif[/IMG], jun xian[/QUOTE'] Dear Nerdoxian,the model listed on ebay is absolutely an epad M002 (ePad - Multimedia Internet Devices). I can say it without any doubts just because i bought one weeks ago thinking that it was an Eken (fuc..ing lier seller) but i paid it few bucks so it's ok for me.Trust me, none of the firmwares posted on the reported link could damage your device in any way. I also flashed a coulple of firmwares found on this site (yes, for Eken m002) on my device and everything went like a charm.If you want to flash just download the related firmware and copy the "script" folder on the sd card, insert it into the device and turn it on. The flashing process will start. Remove the SD when asked ;)Happy flashing, and do it immediately because the original firmware flashed on the device is really soooo slooooow.I hope this helps ;)Alex
