I'm sitting here with a Haipad M701-R running Android 2.1 "Eclair." It's functional so I should be happy with what I've got right? Then again who ever is? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe there are only two Android 2.2 "Froyo" roms available for this tablet, the "Team Telechips" one and the "Official" one. Neither of which is completely functional. This was understandable at first because Telechips had not released source code, but it feels like nothing more has been accomplished since the source code became available either. The "official" 2.2 testing rom was released 8 December 2010 and it sounds like it has a lot in common with the Team Telechips build which is still in development as well - and I've heard nothing yet about either of them being ready for daily use or enabling the missing features. It's also a bit hard to ignore that the last official firmware releases from Haipad have all been for the 4 GB tablets, not the 2 GB like I have. This gives me little confidence that if/when a fully functional Froyo rom is released that my tablet will even share in the joy. In the meantime we've had an official Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" release from Google and the blogosphere is alive with posts about the Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" preview release already running on a Nook Color with hardware acceleration, sound, wi-fi, g-sensor, sd-card support and there isn't even a full version of that OS available yet! It leads me to wonder if a) we'll EVER get a fully functional "Froyo" build for our Telechips tablets or b) if someone will just jump over Froyo to Gingerbread or Honeycomb or c) if we'll be stuck on Eclair and left wanting. I'm not sure what all is involved in cooking a custom rom. I know there is a cross-platform "kitchen" program that automates a lot of the tasks of building a custom rom or can be used to modify an existing rom. I'm guessing it doesn't work for making Telechips roms? I can't help feeling a bit frustrated that we could STILL be waiting for a functional Froyo rom by the time Google officially releases Honeycomb - and wondering if maybe the developers' sites should be set beyond Froyo anyway. Your thoughts?
