exist some firmware for this device?
or someone is developing?
tstonick is working on building us some builds using the AMLogic source, but is having some problems. Our tablet is almost the same as the referance, but we use a different setup for our recovery and as such we can not flash the default update packages from AMlogic. When I get mine back from being repaired I am going to try and build a custom recovery using clockworkmod. I should get it sometime next week or the week after. I am not sure how well its going to work though. We will have to build update packages and such.
I finally got a working key and am right at this moment downloading the repositories. the connection is slow however. I will keep posted.
there is an hope in making a stable rom?
bugs that i found:
-impossible to install .apk from memory card;
-impossible to download applications from the market if the memory card is inserted;
-"settings" crashes sometimes;
Lucky you, I have mailed then to firstname.lastname@example.org twice in the last 15 days and I still haven't got a reply
I've been busy the last couple days. Here's status:
I got what is supposed to be the latest firmware update.zip from the vendor and IRobot. Maybe. I looked at it and it is suspiciously like the update on AMLogic's openlinux wiki. However, they didn't sent me a correct UImage, so I still couldn't flash it. My VM crashed because I set a hard limit of 8GB on the disk size and it overran while downloading the sources from AMLogic. I got it migrated to a 20GB virtual disk and am re-downloading the sources, which as I mentioned in a previous post very slow.
When I get back from CubScout day camp later on today, I'll try some builds for the various board versions and see if I can get one to work.
The good news is that a bootable sd card WILL load up the recovery mode from the card, so as long as the unit is not TOTALLY bricked, I think we can recover.
Then I'll see about building a port of CWM and posting compiled update.zip's based on AMLogic's source. So hopefully I'll have something up somewhere tonight or tomorrow.
Thanks for not nagging me.
TStonick, probably the only thing changing between w10 and this other 8726 based devices is some little minor hardware details so probably with simply recompiling the kernel for every machine the roms we make will be valid for the different tablets.
I still didn't get access to Amlogic GIT, can you upload the last source snapshot to gitorious or github or just zipped somewhere? I have been wanting to start working on CWM for days but I miss the sources.
PS: my english today is worse than habitual, I know, I have a flu :/
Thats good news TStonick I got my repaired one yesterday and it had a newer firmware with market on it but it had an user already set and I tried to do a factory reset and now it wont even boot up. I tried the sd card recovery using the amlogic firmware just for kicks but no go. It did nothing. So I guess I will have to wait until you get us some firmware.
Hey could somebody dump their firmware for me so that I can make a restore sdcard? I know it can be a lot of trouble but would really appreciate it.
any update of this thread. how its going tstonick?
I have this amlogic i robot too.

Hi Johnny, have you got a copy of the latest firmware please, i got this off Tablet off ebay very cheap, same box, same model No. MID-C-070A, but it looks like somebody must have messed it up, it was only working in portrait mode when i got it, so i did a factoy install and it fixed it, the battery life is poor (2 hours) 75% brightness wifi and bluetooth off, the firmware is the same as yours, Build#: V0.42.000.01.MID.user.build.20​110505
