Bought my new Novel today. It was loaded with 07/05 firmware. I used it earlier and all worked fairly well...wi-fi connected, then dropped once after the first time it connected, but reconnected and never disconnected after that. Browser worked good. Reader was good. BUT I WANT APPS!!! So I installed PandaHome using Nate guide. Now Novel seems sloooooow...and wi-fi does NOT work. It is forever in a state of "Turning Wi-Fi Off". Rebooted Novel and used original Home and booted fine and wireless connected immediately. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

I've found that re-flashing the fw fixed a lot of those problems during the period before the re-release. I keep telling people to try to do that. You can't until someone gets the 7-05 fw up. maybe try uninstalling an reinstalling panda...

OK, I found another issue. I have successfully removed pandahome using adb shell. However, using the bat file to revert volume keys back to original does not work. It runs, says it's doing it's thing and reboots the Novel. However, once booted the keys wont control volume...instead down goes BACK and up does nothing...using the original Home that came with Novel.

I am not sure, Nate needs to look at this. But my first inclination is that the revert bat file has been corrupted. Looks like a lot of error messages coming out of it. One thing you might do, I noticed that the bat file doesn't seem to be well delimited at the end of each command, so I actually editted my bat file with NotePad, to put a good newline after each command (just before the next adb), that way it doesn't run altogether like 1 big line. After editing my revert bat looks like this:adb remountadb push gpio-keys.kl.orig /system/usr/keylayout/push gpio-keys.kladb shell chmod 777 /system/usr/keylayout/gpio-keys.kladb shell chown system.system /system/usr/keylayout/gpio-keys.kladb shell rebootEach line is a seperate adb command line. The way I got these from the download, the lines were all running together... I am not sure why. Might give this a try.

Create a new text file. Paste the below into it, and then save it as revert.bat
Code:
adb remountadb push gpio-keys.kl.orig /system/usr/keylayout/gpio-keys.kladb shell chmod 777 /system/usr/keylayout/gpio-keys.kladb shell chown system.system /system/usr/keylayout/gpio-keys.kladb shell reboot
The 2nd "push" on the 2nd line needs to be removed
Code:
adb remountadb push gpio-keys.kl.orig /system/usr/keylayout/[B]push[/B] gpio-keys.kladb shell chmod 777 /system/usr/keylayout/gpio-keys.kladb shell chown system.system /system/usr/keylayout/gpio-keys.kladb shell reboot
