ECOTOX_v1.3.1 with newest 1.9 drivers from the Vestinous firmware copied over ECOTOX default drivers in the SD card script/driver folder before fresh install works for me.Significant better scrolling compared with the official EKEN 1.7.4 update,and seem stable with low res. youtube and WiFi working.Only issue was crash when trying to login to Google Calendar before Google mail was set up (some language conflict in Calendar and down it went).I have installed Camera.apk from Vestinous distro to launch video and pictures and uninstalled ACT1 video player and Home++ frontend (both not necessary) without problems and now has a stable system for my needs.I will not use Market as perhaps fewer apps -> better scroll with our humble 350MHz processor.The SlideMe marketplace although seem to work without fiddling.5$ to ecotox beer fund is sent via PayPal,thank you.

To remember for myself I have made a resume of setup,perhaps it can be of help to someone else.System is stable and scroll almost flawless. Copied drivers from official(?) v1.9 firmware over ECOTOX 1.3.1 default older drivers in script/drivers folder before fresh install.Calibrated screen with stylus and set language.Uninstalled Home++,A1 video player,Documents to go + key.Configured WiFi and got Gmail running before checking Google Calendar working (for me Calendar caused crash when trying to open calendar before Gmail was setup - some language conflicts are reported).With ESfileManager navigated to system/apps folder and removed soundrecordcache.apk (or something similar) which seem to be a leftover from an ECOTOX uninstall - caused errormessage but had dissapeared after reboot.Updated ESfileManager to version from v1.9 firmware (copied FileBrowser.apk from script/apps folder to SD card and installed from there) having a nice blue apperance.Formatted SD card with swap partition with freeware G-parted tool (search and burn iso to bootCD) according to this and installed Terminal.apk ( Terminal is a command prompt,like DOS prompt in XP ).When running Terminal 1'st time and typing su (superuser) dialog box popped up and ticked yes to allways be superuser.Now when entering command "free" in terminal swap partition on SD card show up automounted with figure higher than 0.To read djvu files i use Vudroid and for PDF's Driodreader,to watch xvid files installed Wuzhenhuaplayer.Have not tried to get (Google) market to work but the alternative APKTOR market using apktor.apk and after enteringthese adresses works (more than 500 apps available).First update of app cache in APKTOR did not stop even after 15 minutes,but had although succesfully been done when forcing shutdown (pressing on button for 5 seconds) and rebooting. Default Home++ frontend,documents to go etc. can be reinstalled from the SD card script/apps folder where they reside as apk files.Swap on SD card should help browsing etc.It is also possible to decrease wifi output power to reduce noise and power consumption by ammendig a line in one of the config files with ESfileManagers inbuild text editor.
