A list of information for would-be devs, who might do something like compile a customized kernel, porting Gingerbread/HoneyComb, etc.

kernel hackers http://groups.google.com/group/vt8500-wm8505-linux-kernel

Kernel with support for WM8505/8650, still needs work and testing, but is latest kernel. Potential for Gingerbread if this is made to work.

Hi Mr. Tass, do you mind posting how to tear down / dismantle MID V7, mine having problem with battery and I am not sure how to open the case without breaking the screen.
I haven't actually opened mine up.
I imagine you need to pry the screen up from the case along the edges... make sure you aren't peeling the black plastic screen area... but instead getting in between the outside case and the edge of the screen...

Again I am just assuming from past experience and not seeing any screws... that it is attached that way.

Proceed at your own risk.

Thanks for replying Mr. Tass, I have tried to open it but I stop right away when i see I might broke the case. I hope there is saver way to open the case since it still usable, only problem with battery which alway dropped to 60% when I disconnect the charger after fully charged 100% and always cannot boot when battery reach 36% when i shutdown it.

Very nice and the new video software seems to work well for you.
Same software that I have made all of the videos with... just decided to use the pictures I took instead of re-tearing it apart on video.

Thank you. One thing that I have discovered is that my touchscreen is very vulernable to scratching . . . [I use both finger and fingernail to navigate]. Is this merely an indication that I need weekly manicures, or is this something specifically associated with resistive touchscreens? Thanks.

Does yours still have a plastic film on it above the black/thicker film layer?

I don't think so.

edit: It does. I carefully removed the thin film layer. Scratches were removed along with the film. . . however, there were some "pits" that were below the film. Any suggestions??
second edit: Pits seem to remain even after a gentle rub with a soft cloth. I suppose there was something lodged between the film and the screen. Now, do I need to replace the film?

The Juli/August batch from MeriMobiles contains the Ralink RT2070L as Wifi Chip.
That is a 802.11 b/g/n. chip


This makes the MID V7 from MeriMobiles a LY-706 according to this source:

EDIT: At least, the ones with a BLUE LED.


EDIT 2: Anybody know were the top film can be bought? (the film that you have to peel of, it covers the screws)
Thank you for the info. I also need the film as well. As an aside, I did purchase this

http://www.pandawill...-tablet-pc.html -- the protective peel away film. Nothing turned up regarding the film that covers the screws.

Edit: Probably one of the best videos that tear down the M009S showing all components by a member of HCH forums. Compliments nicely those videos already posted on this thread. Very instructive!
