    Got this cheap for Christmas

    Its a simple 256mb

    Model number - generic

    Firmware 1.6

    Kernel Version 2.6.29-00236-g48dbbb-dirty

    Build 2.1.2_105

    My questions are

    Are there any roms out there with some decent apps and maybe Skype that is useable? Anything is better than what it came pre-loaded with!

    Sorry, first post on here and I dont really know where to start looking

    Cheers!

    you will need to identify the cpu on this machine. look in the settings there you may see the cpu.
    if you don't have android market you can look for threads that talk about sideloading
    skype is not all working on all android tablets but people seem to have better luck with skype lite

    Thanks for the reply. Can't find the CPU anywhere but looking at the photos I am sure its the same as the ones mentioned in the Gnome Flytouch threads. Green LED etc..

    I am sure its the Rom that is on it but the model number is displaed as M2011 and the Firmware version listed as Uberoid.Problem being is that the current rom that is on the tablet has bugs connecting to Wifi. Its constantly hanging on obtaining an IP address from the router. I have yet to test linking the 7" tab with the new Iphone 4.3 IOS wifi sharing but could do to see if its an issue with the tablet or the wifi settings.

    But deep down any better rom would be better!

    Hope someone can help. Getting really used to Android!
