Installed the working M001 image from here, http://www.slatedroid.com/vbulletin/downloads.php?do=file&id=55, to my M003 and it works! Well, almost. Still thinks my screen is 800x480 when we all know it's 800x600. So the top bit of the screen is replicated below. But still works. We just need to figure out how to modify scriptcmd to let it know that the screen rez is different, I think!

I've tried to do a 5 or 6 new scriptcmd but without good results, WinCE works fine except for the screen.The problem is, we are sure that is dependent on the scriptcmd? and if your driver (wm_display.dll) should be changed?

OOC why are you guys trying to install wince(and I do), as every wince device that I have ever used has been beyond awful...[EDIT]...and I can't imagine that it has actually improved over the intervening years either... yes, it was that awful...[/EDIT]

It's got it's limitations but it's very fast on the m003. Much faster than android. And it supports adhoc networking so I can tether with my iphone ( big plus for me ). The built IE is pretty weak and there arnt many alternatives or much software to begin with but for simple things like putty and listening to music I'd choose Win Ce. Hell I even got it to stream divx over wifi and actually play. I couldn't dream of that in android.

I did a quick search on changing the rez in WinCe. It looks like we might be able to change it through the registry. I'm gonna give that a try later on today.

I tried this route, seven other parameters after installation, but without good results.I think certainly change the parameters are:lcdparamLCDC_FBCxScreenCyScreenI tried to insert values for l800x600 in Cx & Cy without good results.I tried to delete:d8110508 | 10, d8110504 | 10, d8110500 | 10 and I have deletedparameter regop works quietly and windows ..so I'm sure does not depend regop, whereas I have doubts on addresses that are still in the parameter lcdparam that are related (very close) and those regop.I modified the LCDC_FB from 760 ... to 790 ... and the screen became all red lolWhereas the size of the framebuffer depend on the output video resolution and color, I can imagine that should also change this parameter: /have any ideas / tests to try?

I am pretty sure Cx and CyScreen need to be hex. Something like this:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEDriversDisplay...];;where ... is the display name;;800x600x16"CxScreen"=dword:320"CyScreen"=dword:258"BPP"=dword:10"Freq"=dword:3CWhen you changed Cx and CyScreen - was there any change in screen rez after the reboot?

I can't create a scriptcmd that boots. [email protected] command line options are you using for mkimage?

Code:
mkimage -A arm -O linux -T script -C none -a 0 -e 0 -n "header (whatever you want)" -d myscript.txt scriptcmd
careful not to format your text file does not work then otherwise.use the vi editor or gedit or nano.

Wince completely working, at least for me
. Unzip and then copy the attached scriptcmd to the script directory. Upgrade firmware as normal. On first reboot, screen will still be 800x480. On second reboot, calibration screen comes up at 800x600. Buttons are still mapped wrong for us, so its good to have a usb mouse or keyboard hooked up during the calibration because it calls for a button click to accept.For your viewing pleasure:

Perfect, thanks ;-) Now the Eken M003 is finally usable.. By the way, you don`t need to connect a mouse, just press the power button once after the message with the order to remove SD-Card, then another windows pop up, now you can just shut down by longpressing power button and turning on.For a better browser i recommend the Iris Browser, which also can be scrolled by finger withouth using the scrollbar, It is included in the WM application pack here in the download area.

@desmoIt was the first line that got it for me: setenv lcdparam 1,40000,8,800,600,20,46,210,10,23,12I picked it up out of the scriptcmd from the latest m003 android release. When I compared them (the m001 to the m003), I released we weren't just looking a the pixel rez only but the dot clock and horizontal and vertical sync data. So once I got mkimage working (thanks to winvi32), I had it up and running pretty quick. When you look at the video driver and the registry - looks like it can handle up to 1024 x 768... I mean as long as the screen can to. Now I just gotta' get my GPS working!
