Hi Donaldson,Just installed your ROM on my APAD and it was indeed love at first sight. Thanks a million and hope you keep going.I think it'd be a great idea to replace the chinese ebook reader with aldiko. BTW, Adhocable, an app I wrote some time back for simplifying adhoc wifi on apad has become quite popular. Your ROM now makes me want to do a nice widget for it to go with your lovely home screen!

There are a couple of issues I am trying to resolve... and I'd at least like to try to get the Location feature working.

Anyways hopefully u'll be able to to fix the suspend/sleep not working on the front main/big button press and the "my location" not working on google apps. In the future since we have the Rockchip source, hopefully you can continue the work on the Android 1.6 (maybe 2.2 also?) for this tab and maybe an upto date kernel : ) Thank!!!!

BTW, i found a bug when using the new boot.img from xau. On a fresh install/flash of any firmware using the new boot.img you wont be able to access some files in your flash/internal memory. To fix, you have to address, sd card "missing" in the notification bar by inserting a microSD in your Apad. Also mounting the flash memory on your PC might do the trick too (have not done this tho)

D, I've been doing trials/test and I find Roger's Hybrid 6 when installed with xau's new boot.img, the fastest/snappiest. With your ROMs there are some hiccups in the UI/home still. Since your ROM is more or less the same framework as the Hybrid 6, the W7 home app might be the culprit.

Hi davedioni,I'd faced the same problem and was initially unable to use the market.Then I realized that market was trying to load its first page without showing me the terms of use acceptance page. The fix for this is:Calling a market download activity from another app.I had the Astro file manager apk so I installed it on my apad. When I used its SMB feature, it asked whether I want to install thew module from market. Went ahead and you I saw the google market's toc page.I accepted the terms and my market started working perfectly!You can get the free Astro file manager apk by a google search. Do let us know if this works for you.If its a common problem for this lovely ROM, I'll make a small app to trigger the market toc page.

Hi george1983,I'm the developer of the adhocable app.I'm glad that you use it and like it so much!It would indeed be an honor for me if donaldson thinks adhocable is good enough to be included in his fantastic ROM.

Super ROM really puts some zip into the Apad.One question I am hoping someone can help me with is how can I modify the homes screens to change the number of screens and also how I can add/remove items from the app barcheers

I'm not sure that we all aren't having some kind of market problem. I've installed every batch 2 firmware from the original through to Xau's and RB and mine. All have the same problem - I actually thought my apad was dying. read here: http://www.slatedroid.com/apad-andr...cant-access-market-apad-irobot.html#post52104I've a new release with NetworkLocation working, but I hesitate to upload for the market problems that it will cause.

It seems to have something to do with the terms of use agreement. Rogers ROMs have the same issue. I installed Rogers 6 beta and once I installed skyfire from an apk the market worked. Was strange, but Ive read others have similar fixes.

Hey all,i have had the Market issue on most ROMs. I agree its the Terms etc that cause it. I do the following which seems to fix it:plug in to PC and format the onboard Storage ramInstall Advanced Task Killer (the ES task killer may also work i guess)Reboot the aPadUse ATK to kill all tasksConnect to WiFiOpen GMail and make sure you are setup and signed inOpen Market - the Terms Agreement usually appears thenSometimes I have had to do reboot - kill tasks - etc twice but always gets it working

I'll try to make a small apk to trigger the TOC page, then we can try it out to confirm. Will have to do it on Sunday though, Eid tomorrow
