    Hi all,

    I bought a apad called a MID. The specs as:
    [​IMG]

    And after running AnTutu (A benchmark software), this is what it reports:
    [​IMG]

    Now let me say, I have no problems with the pad at all, and just want to know if there is a 'proper' name for this unit, and if it is possible to upgrade Android on it. If so how. Any feedback & links to Roms or firmwares appreciated, as I would not like to brick my shiny new apad by following another specs howto. I am in South Africa if this makes diffirence?

    Thanks in advance.

    Attached images of how the unit looks:

    I am not aware of a firmware upgrade for the batch 2 9.7" capacitive Freescale iMX515 tablet at the moment.

    Thanks for prompt response, is that what I would be looking for in future? iMX515 update? Would this be a custom built Android system, or would it be created and available periodically?

    I was wondering, can one make their own rom from the sdk? I have downloaded it, and it seems pretty straight forward. Is there a walkthrough/guide? And how would you configure it for a specific device etc?

    Anyone tried to make their own rom using the sdk & Android 3?

    I have seen youtube videos etc and through the emulator seen that the Android 3 is very slick etc & optimised for tablets. So yea, I would like to bomb it onto my tablet if it can be done.

    Any help appreciated as I dont want to brick my tablet.

    Google for 'how to build AOSP', and also download the iMX515 SDK and work from there? I don't really know very well myself though. But that's where i would look first.
