Batch2 only! RED LEDCheck my blog for latest. I don't feel like copy and pasting. And my blog wont go down. http://myapad.wordpress.com-> below applies to 1.33 versions of my ROM now. English ROM is very similar to rogerbraun's. This release was made mainly for the Arabic and Chinese localizations. Includes 300MB data, hardware back key, proper landscape apps...Head over to my blog post for the full gist of what this is all abouthttp://myapad.wordpress.com/2010/06/28/hybridkangxau-apad-irobot-custom-firmware/I don't want to retype it 3 times. Download link is here.v1.3AR Arabic ROM Test direct linkDownloadArabic ROM specific notes here: http://myapad.wordpress.com/2010/07/05/hybridkangxau-1-3ar-arabic-android-1-5-rom-for-apad-irobot/
It displays Hebrew and most other languages just fine, by the way. But I'll tune one for Hebrew maybe later:

I've been using the 1.2.1 rom for the past 24hrs or so. I like the size of it, having 350meg of user install space. There are somethings I'd like back from Rogers roms, if possible (or if there is a way to get them back by changing settings). The little Tab on the menu slider would be nice. It's easier to hit than the little bar you have.I am about to test your 1.2.2 rom though, I much prefer an empty slate to start things from, and I'm sure many people would appreciate it as well. Thanks

Nice and fast here, but I stuck it on an 8GB aPad and the storage no longer shows in the Settings panel - any feedback on that would be handy, likewise if there's anything I can do that would explain why the firmware might be doing that on this machine (I haven't tried it on a 2GB model yet) I'll be happy to have a look at it this evening.The original firmware had an application called "aPad" that made it mimic an iPad - if anyone's had one of these machines and has a dump of that original firmware I'd appreciate it, too.

Just plug the Apad into your computer and mount it. It should ask you to reformat. Choose fat32.

I really like the aPad boot screen. It is a little freaky the first time you boot up to have the screen go completely black.Mine only took about a minute or so after going to the black screen to get to the calibration screen. (Using 1.2.2) It definitely seems snappy. ;)I love the hard-key back button! I can finally use apps like Facebook without worrying about getting stuck in a full-screen feature.

I found out what I was doing wrong. I was using the usb to mini usb that came with my phone. I opened the one that came with the apad and everything worked fine first time. Thanks anyway. Anyone else has problems, try using original cord.Come to think of it, I was having problems each time install a new firmware, this could be the fix for that also!Edit: thanks for the fast reply

DEFINITELY snappier.I love that now the home screen can do portraitfor me, I couldn't wait for the calibration screen and ended up doing the "black button -> menu button" thing over and over again. I guess all I had to do was wait.
(love the bootup splash screen; but then realized it simply comes straight from the hiapad website)now I just can't wait for android 2.1 to be released by rockchip and then our awesome rom cookers to do their magic!xaueious: convince the manufacturer to hurry up and release all the necessary codes and drivers so that the developers can have a go at it!!

From what I've read, the ROM updates work with the 32 bit versions of the Windows OS's (using the RKAndroid tool). In fact, if you look in the Driver folder of the RKAndroid tool, you'll notice there is an x86 folder for 2000, Vista, Win7, and XP which indicates to me that there are drivers for each of those OS's.I flashed mine on Windows 7 32 bit. (With a third party USB cable)(Note: there is also an Driveramd64 folder for vista and win7)
