Issues,Market is not working -> well this is problem with all 1.7.4 ROM's, I dont thing that there is a reable fix for it at the moment. Market issues are propably caused by incorrect AndroidID tag in Eken FW's, for example games like World War, Ninjas Live etc. are saying that AndroidID is missing, how ever you can try to install these games to rom, how? simple, Install the game but dont run it, Login to Android Market and exit from there, start the game. It works but as there is problem with AndroidID you will see profile that someone else has started

Thanks for making updates!I'm pretty disappointed with the dysfunctional rom that came with my device so it's really good to see that someone tries to improve it!I've just updated my slate and the update process went just fine.But after that things got pretty bad. None of the hardware buttons worked except for the power button so i couldnt unlock the device. The touch screen didn't work either so i can't even reboot the device.But i'm sure you'll fix these bugs in a later release!Anyway, keep up the good work!And keep the new releases coming!

Anyhow I will look if there's anything that I can do.

Thats why your release didn't work for me.Sorry about the confusion.

I Think that it?s a good job, in my Eken M003 works perfectly, I found some things to optimize by example: The initialization takes about 4 minutes, you can add the youtube low res from another link here, works perfectly fom explorer and from youtube application. I probe all and send my feedback.Thanks a lot!

Hi, a pretty good Beta. I have it on my 'white label' Eken M003 and everything works. Nice collection of apps, cool boot, and clearly some tweaks here and there. I still find the Eken M003 a dog, and it lacks the slick user interface I had hoped for. However, your ROM is the best I've tried so far. Thanks for the effort, please continue!Appreciated here in the UK :0)

Want a copy?[/QUOTE']Well, the market issue is not that simple, while using caffeine ROM you actually get an AndroidID when you first sing in to market, to test this you can simply installing Thinkfree sysinfo, under System settings you can see your current AndroidID and as I have tested it several times AndroidID is missing until you login with your Google ID. Any how I quite sure that we can this working sooner or later.Yep posted to other tread, that I would like got my hand on with 1.9 so PM a link if you can.BTW next version of caffeine should be out by the end of this week. Nothing fancy, trying to figure out optimal memory setting to get more speed etc.

So to get next version done, I would like to get your opinion shoud I try to trim FW as small as possible or add some apps to it, mainly I'm thinking to add some tools so users can tweak setting by them self easily, like modify swap options and memory management. Is there any other app you would like to see pre-installed?

As you're asking... the less pre-installed, the better it is, I'd say.I'd like to see a speed optimised ROM, usable for surfing and mailing.Some essential system tools would be great, though.Everything else can (hopefully one day) be downloaded from market.Cheers!Denis

bobby2010;25659]The desktop icon spacing seems to be wide.[/QUOTE]You might be right said:
I dowbloaded but its a rar document file. Its not a zip file. I wasn't able to install. How do I install onto the sdcard? since its not a zip file> Yes I am a noob.
Hmm, file is in 7zip format, so you need to use 7-zip to extract files, you can download 7-zip from here: http://www.7-zip.org/download.htmlI tend to use only this format :) sorry about that.
