    Hello All,

    I am new to the forum and I've been reading heavily yesterday and today. I got a Wizard E200 Revolution, which is basically an Eken M001 off of eBay for $85 shipped from CA. It's brand new and I won't have it until early next week.

    My question is about a new Firmware. :confused: I've seen lots of people updating their firmware and I see many people with different issues once new firmware is installed. I understand that updating firmware is "at your own risk", but what firmwares do you guys like? Which ones have had the best results for you?

    These are the firmwares I'm looking at:

    Android_2.0_M001_0915
    M001 Slatedroid Mercury RC (Logo Fixed)
    Slatedroid 1.3 [1.7.4 base]

    What do you think? Suggestions? Anything? :confused:

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    I think the reason is that they are not KU fans (Sorry K-State fan and your Avatar name) It is the problem of the EKen M001 with the VIA 8505 processor is a disposable and firmware is modded by the vendor sometimes. There are some very Stable 2.0 firmwares. But the 1.7.4 firmware was quite good and commonly installed.

    Sooooo. my recommendation, Read TipStirs posts. He is the expert on these low power /low cost tablets. I think he has a Firmware which may be your fit.

    Hey Gurgle, not a KU fan either. I'm a Tarheel fan. JHawk is my call sign. I used to be a BlackHawk crew chief and my last name is Hawkins, first initial J.

    Thanks for the info. I'll look over TipSter's posts.

    2.01 dark edition by lefeudieu on slatedroid.com is excellent.
