    1 or 2 speakers?

    1 speaker model should have two screws next to the 30pins connector.

    unfortunately, I no longer have copy of my 2.2 rom. You can try googling for 1 speaker model(utopia) 2.2 rom as thats the only type that is fully compatible with your tablet.

    if you are however interested in my kkmod 2.3 rom, i will made extracted out the 4gb image for you.

    download the following rom image:

    kkmod-v2.3.3-r03c-part1
    kkmod-v2.3.3-r03c-part2

    its a 4GB file.

    Use the following steps to copy the image file to your internal SD card.

    Windows Raw Image Flashing Guide

    Sorry, I know its in chinese but its pretty self-explainatory. I dont use windows so thats what I found.

    Did you flash the full 4gb?

    try booting up by pressing both the menu + home and then turn the power on. Do you get anything?

    Is there an android text when you boot up or it stay at penguin logo? Based on what I see, you dont have a working kernel. There is 1 or 2 cases that I have seen where rom does not seem to be compatible which make me wonder.

    Also since you have the kkmod bootloader working, you can also try the following :

    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...kmod-gingerbread-rom-8-imx515-v2-3-3-r02.html

    Follow the installation steps but skip step 3, 4 and 5.
