THIS ONLY WORKS WITH THE 2.0 VERSION OF THE aPAD (THE ONE WITH A WEBCAM). DO NOT FLASH THIS ROM ON A VERSION 1.0 aPAD (WITHOUT WEBCAM).This is my third apad firmware. It's base on last hybrid firmware v0.1.Some important issues are solved.http://rapidshare.com/files/396302842/Hellomerong-Apad-v0.3.zipMain features - Based on 0530 official firmware, use lastest archos firmware as much as possible. - Rooted, adb and debug on - All Google stuffs of apad are working. (market, calendar, talks, maps...) - Camera works. - Some applications that didn't work on original firmware work well. (ACV, robo defense...) - fixed : If application set as fullscreen mode, It works well. Status bar is not forced. (If you want to use status bar always. Do not use this firmware) - fixed : Auto orientation works properly
, But G-sensor is still malfunction. It seems to be fixed in driver or abstraction layer. Included application - Google stuffs of apad - Advanced Task Killer Free - Superuser - Acomic viewer - AppLib (archos market app) - Deezer - eBuddy - ColorNote - ES File Explorer - iReader - Aldiko reader - MarketEnabler - SlideMe - Youtube - Korean keyboard. Remained problems - display on/off button works as display off only, you should use menu or home button as display on button. - After sleeping a long time, the display will not switch on just by pressing the menu button. Press the main button followed by the menu button to wake up - You should recalibrate touchscreen after every reboot. (exit from sleep mode is ok)After updating firmware, USB cable should be removed to calibrate touchpad.To set date & time, you should run "market" and set date & time at initial setting of marketThen you can change "date & time" on main setting menu (thanks to donaldson)========== v0.2 history =====http://rapidshare.com/files/394300765/Hellomerong-Apad-v0.2.zipUse APAD's lastest official firmware 0530Rooted Add some application - Acomic viewer - Aldiko reader - iReader - MaketEnabler - Advanced task killer : change installed task manager to this - SlideME(SAM 3.42) - Youtube

But I think it will be useful for global user even if it has korean keyboard.The keyboard application is small and not default.
sorry, didn't understand this probably correct - does this mean you have eliminated the other languages and keyboard inputs and only left korean?i would need german input / language. i installed yesterday ubunto on vmware - it think i'll give a try for a "custom rom" ;D (i've read some informations here - but sadly no real guide)a category for "custom roms" and a "how to" for newbies (like me) would be great i think.

Great work
. I wanted to be the first to get a ROM out but I've had a horrible case of food poisoning and been in hospital most of this week. Can't wait to get my teeth into this.

Thanks![/quote]If you want to change some files in rootfs or system partition, you should repack boot.img or system.img.Because cramfs is readonly filesystem. you can't modify the files even if you have root permission.
