    My Motorola Atrix and every other android phone I have ever used that has the "touch" buttons already comes with it. For example when I play shadowgun on my atrix and I quickly touch the the home button, it takes me to the home screen, but if my palm stays on the home button it understands that I'm just holding the device not trying to push any buttons. But the kyros tablet doesn't do this every time I play a Earth and Legend or any other game and I hold the device in landscape my hands must be on either side of the device and when my palm touches the buttons regardless of whether I quickly push them on purpose or if my hand is on them for extend periods of time it instantly closes the game. So I don't know if this is a software issue or just how the buttons are made.

    I see, it seems to be a combined hardware/software solution. So I am afraid it's not possible with our Kyros. :(

    This rocks. Looks great, almost indistinguishable from my Thrive at work. Great job on this rom.

    Thanks for all the work you put into it.

    @Pickupman66: I don't remember changing anything related to battery, did you change your WiFi sleep policy by any chances? Wait until you fully charge and discharge at least once, it should calibrate itself. And I didn't understand the other part, "widow was not getting as much range"? If it's WiFi, it's normal here too.

    @BDS: you're welcome. :)

    @lfom any plans to a Honeycomb or ICS port for our Kyros? It's possible to run any of them with our tech specs or this is just a dream (like R.E.M song)?

    steev said the HC is probably compatible with Gingerbread drivers, so as soon as there's a version for smdkv210 board (Samsung S5PV210 processor) I will start working on it. ICS is more complicated, because new drivers for the digitizer will be needed (that's why CFW Gingerbread for 1024 took longer than for 7024/8024). But, who know? Maybe urbetter will surprise us. ;)

    OK. so I went on a hunt. we quoted some tablets for a project a while back from a company called Masonda Technology. they offered several tablets with that processor (specifically 7" capacitive units with Coretex A8). so I shot an email and went fishing... we will see. they Had Android 3.2 for the Nvidia Tegra 2 chipsets

    @lfom your firmware is awesome especially the CFW 1.3 wow. it makes my 1024 like a true xoom.
    keep up...maybe one of this day you will developing a real honeycomb firmware for 1024.

    Hi, i downloaded GingerLF v1.3 and extracted to sdcard but my Kyros keeps saying "Can not find any update image".
    I't worked perfecly with the older versions of GingerLF, and also with the Coby Stock firmware.

    Facts:
    - I am extracting files correcly to root of sdcard
    - Files are not corrupt (i downloaded it 2 times and the zip extracted perfectly)

    I already tried:
    - Format SDCARD with FAT32 again
    - Create a 2GB partition to test (i'm using a 16GB microsdhc card)


    Now i'll try to flash my Kyros with Stock firmware just for testing purposes.
    Maybe a problem on sdcard ? (but the card is ok on computer, and also when i use it on the tablet)

    Thanks

    UPDATE: I tried to flash Coby Original Firmware and got the same problem!!! I'll look for another sdcard to make a test. Any ideas?

    It's the SD, replace it.

    u-boot is incompatible with some sdcards.

    Maybe we can work around this by updating using the recovery method (upgrade.img)?
    Then the SD will be mounted in Linux instead of u-boot, so we shouldn't have this problem.

    Should be safer too since the bootloader is not replaced.
