Hello All,

In this post is a basic .BAT script.

[hr]

DropBox.com - Tasselhof-APK-AutoInstaller.rar

This is an extremely simple and straightforward script.
The basic purpose is to install multiple .APK files using the command: adb install (filename)
I decided to create this to make my custom image creation process even faster.

Instructions:
Extract the folder to ANY location you wish. (it is self contained)

Connect your tablet using the OTG port (normal procedure)
Copy in any and all .APK files you wish to install to the folder !Tasselhof-APK-AutoInstaller
.
Run !APK Auto Install Script.bat

Watch the magic happen


Enjoy!

Tasselhof

I should hopefully be getting my device soon.
Also in regards to firmware's... there is one by Roger "Vestinious" that I/we believe will work, but it just hasn't been tested yet... so I haven't posted it.

I have updated the link to represent the latest Vestinious build just released today.

1.3.1 Vestinious Lite

*Not Rooted* - Ive decided to allow the user to chose if they want it rooted,
Based on WMT 1.3.0 factory build,
Added Market and changed fingerprint,
Added Gmail & Astro,
Changed language and timezone to English & GMT,
Removed Arabic keyboard,


I also just installed it on my MID V7 and it works like a charm.
I plan on posting a Head to Head to Head comparison video sometime in the next week. (hopefully it will all work out as planned)
- C8 vs. Stock V7 vs. Vestinious V7

Thanks!

I also removed the phone.apk as I had forgotten to do so and now the boot time is faster and the battery life should improve.
Added Kindle and updated Gmail as again I had forgotten to do this.
Its really just to have the firmware ready to go without any sideloading.

I bought one and I have been told it works with 3G dongle

I have vodafone HUWEI E220 dongle,

but it doesn't seem to work, do you know how to configure 3g settings

the APN is internet and the username and password are both web (confirmed by Vodafone)

do you know how to configure 3g settings
This is a hack that I made on my wm8505-rooted device. You could give it a try here, but you need root access to a console on the device. I also not ensure the procedure will work as is on WM8650 (which has a different Kernel). Anyhow, this is what I did to make my "unsupported" 3G dongle to work.

1) Execute 'dmesg' on the rooted console terminal, which will report log kernel messages.

2) Plug in your USB 3G modem.

3) Keep trying 'dmesg' and observe output. It *should*, sooner or later, report messages from the 3G dongle. In my case it gave, after a few seconds or so:

-------
<6>usb 1-2.2: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 30
<3>hub 1-2:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 2
<6>usb 1-2.2: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 31
<6>usb 1-2.2: New USB device found, idVendor=05c6, idProduct=0015
<6>usb 1-2.2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
<6>usb 1-2.2: Product: BMC CDMA Technologies MSM
<6>usb 1-2.2: Manufacturer: Qualcomm, Incorporated
<6>usb 1-2.2: SerialNumber: Data Interface
-------

The "CDMA Technologies ... Qualcomm, Incorporated" was indeed my 3G modem. Take a note of "idVendor" and "idProduct" (05c6, 0015 in my case).

4) On the console terminal, give the command:

echo "05c6 0015" > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id

(of course, you should replace "05c6 0015" with your modem vendor and product code)

This step will create a link for /dev/ttyUSB* to the 3G modem device. If you keep logging kernel messages with 'dmesg', something like this should appear:

--------------
<6>option 1-2.2:1.3: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected
<6>usb 1-2.2: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB0
<6>option 1-2.2:1.0: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected
<6>usb 1-2.2: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB1
<6>option 1-2.2:1.1: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected
<6>usb 1-2.2: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB2
--------------

5) Still on the console, move to this directory (not sure if on the WM8650 is the same of WM8505; this is for 8505):

cd /system/etc/ppp

there I could find for example this script:

DeviceHW_E220.dia

I made a copy of it, as well as of the .conf configuration file referred therein, so that I could modify them freely:

cat ./mydevice.dia

#!/system/bin/sh
/system/bin/pppd \
/dev/ttyUSB0 \
115200 \
debug \
noauth \
user USER \
password PASSWD \
defaultroute \
noipdefault \
usepeerdns \
connect '/system/bin/chat -v -f /system/etc/ppp/mydevice.conf'

cat ./mydevice.conf

# /etc/ppp/gprs-connect-chat
# chat script for China Mobile, used HuaWei GTM900-B GPRS module.

TIMEOUT 40
ABORT "DELAYED"
ABORT "BUSY"
ABORT "ERROR"
ABORT "NO DIALTONE"
ABORT "NO CARRIER"
TIMEOUT 40
'' \nAT
OK AT&F0
OK ATE0V1&C1&D2
OK ATE0
OK AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","web.omnitel.it"
OK ATD*99#
CONNECT ''

The only thing I changed with respect to the original configuration was "web.omnitel.it", which is the address of Vodafone Italy, 3G provider for the SIM I have in my dongle. Of course you should have an active UMTS service and enough money credit to (I'm telling this because my first trial failed just because I hadn't credit on my SIM).

Of course you should put your 3G SIM provider address, in your .conf file.

6) execute your script, with:

./mydevice.dia

If everything goes fine, the connection should be established and the 3G icon should appear on the Android top bar. Also, messages like these should appear in 'dmesg' output, reporting a successful pppd deamon activity:

If anything fails... mhhh, well, I reached this point with a lot of trials, errors, Google, again trial, again errors, again Google, posting on forums, etc... So, good luck!
