    So you're installing the firmware again, after replacing the internal card, right? If yes, remove the calibration app from utv210_root.tgz and add the new one (ut-tscal) so the new one is flashed. As it's a new installation, you don't need to clear cache as steev explained earlier.

    About the bigger card, you don't need to do anything, the extra space will be added to the /sdcard partition. You only have to change the partition values if you want a bigger "internal area" (normally it's 1.5GB and it's more than enough IMO, at least until we can find a fix for the slower boot with increasing number of installed apks).

    sunset0202, while using the Zeam launcher (the same launcher used in Tsunami) on Alldro2 I noticed that I was randomly losing my touchscreen calibration. I'm still not sure if Zeam was the cause, but after switching back to the Alldro2 stock launcher I have not had this problem.

    So it might help to use the stock launcher from the 1010 firmware (I believe this is what Tsunami is based on)

    It seems that the only way to actually reduce boot time in Gingerbread is moving apks to SD. There are some utilities that do it in batch, so you don't have to do one by one using Settings -> Applications. Not all apps can be moved either, but it seems that if you do it with the external SD out, they still work when extsd is mounted again. I was worried because of that property we use to seamlessly use extsd as sdcard. It seems a good solution IMO...

    I replaced ut_tscal before installing the CFW again (from Coby OFW). So far, after many boots, all is fine. I installed Launcher2 too, will spend some time testing both and let you know if I notice anything that shouldn't be. Thanks, steeve.

    Did some more testing and yes, custom launchers appear to break the Alldro2 calibration app. Happens with symbean's HC launcher too.

    The Coby OFW calibration app seems to work fine with custom launchers though. Both apps are version 1.0, but the checksums are different.

    Hi just to let you know after changing the calibration app like steev told me my tablet is still working find and better respond from it. I have the feeling that the battery life is better with alldro firmware I will go back to this firmware instead of the tsunami. I can not find the calibration app in utv210_root.tgz file, is it save under system/app ???? thanks

    Check in patches/urbetter_resistive_tscal_patch.tgz

    CFW Alldro2 1.0 is about ready to release. Just want to get permission from symbean to use his Honeycomb UI first

    HI there. Little things.

    First. Screen seems to be more responsive now, but the calibration is bad. Specially when im writing or browsing in PC view, the precision is very bad. I've read a reply in regards to this but i dont know which calibration app are you talking about.

    About battery life, is shorter than the 0.2&0.3 CFW you made steev. Of course, using live Wallpapers, and stuff drains it twice fast, but still, is shorter.

    The eq app, does not convince me xD, im a musician so im very precise with it, can you use a better app? that would be AWESOME.

    Sync, still lil' sucky but its an issue present in all roms i've used, even the OFW.

    Ah...this morning i got a screen freeze (the system was responding but touchscreen didn't). don't know what happened. A reboot solved the problem.

    BTW, i tested the 3D chain app, to play dead space 2, but it was kinda usseless, after searching for updates, the system freezes at the EA logo screen. Has someone got working any Tegra game? thnx there xD

    Edit: Ok, i need to sleep better, gonna search in the directory you said and post about the changes. but after i sleep a bit im in zombie mode xD

    These Honeycomb themes are known to drain the battery a bit faster. I'd expect that battery life is about the same as Alldro2 with Honeycomb UI, but I haven't checked so you may be right.

    If you know a better app tell me and I'll include it.

    Lemme ask some friends about the eq apps and i will tell ya.

    BTW, a thing i forgot in the last message was about the notification bar cant be set to be slider (deslizable)? with the calibration issue its a bit boring to try a lot to slide it, so it would help. About the calibration, i didn't found the folder, will search it in the rom .RAR; but i think i discovered something. i was making some tests with the calibration. Looks like when you calibrate the screen it keeps calibrated until you reboot. When the device is reboted, changes are lost. This is my impression, didnt tried it with the stylus to be more accurate. Has someone tried this?

    Another thing i tried to edit the init_smkv.rc (dont remember the exact name xD) using the jota text editor but i couldnt. where i can edit it? in the sdk app? or the rom aint pre-rooted? thnx :D

    EDIT: another thing steev. I need to uninstall the dspmanagerin order to test other eq apps, but i cant from the settings menu. how can i make it?

    tlbardelljr is still working on the code to make it slidable. It's not finished yet.

    Yes, I am aware that calibration is lost on reboot. Here is the fix:
    I don't know why, but this ROM (seemingly randomly) remounts the rootfs read-only.
    Type this in adb or a terminal emulator to fix:
    Code:
    su
    mount -o remount,rw /
    
    Use a root explorer to delete /vendor/app/DSPManager.apk

    OK...So I must be missing something here with installing these ROMs to my 7024. I've looked at the Coby PDF for the official process as well. Basically I download any of the ROMs ... unzip the contents to the root of my external SD Card (so it's not a single folder but rather multiple folders and files) ... put the external SD card into the external SD slot ... power on using the HOME+Power button until I see the words "Update System Activated" ... and then I get the error message "Can not find update image. Press Menu/UP to init ... blah blah blah." So I press Menu/Up and the recovery process kicks off with Making Partitions... shuts down ... and then I'm back to the default ROM (not a custom ROM).

    So my rooted Coby doesn't seem to like reading custom update files or I am just missing something. Do I have to crack this thing open and use the internal SD slot on the motherboard for these custom ROMs?

    Try using another microSD, as steev suggested here too.
