    Hi there, i also have a m18a sharper image tablet with the same problem, stuck on logo android. Tried fixing it with ADB or FastBoot but couldnt do it. Then i tried with FWDN using tcc8803 driver to conect (shorting pins 7&8 in nand) and connect correctly, but i think i used the wrong lk.rom and ended up messing nand. Now i cant boot, just a black screen with two thin lines on the sides. If someone could help me get the correct lk.rom and boot up again, so i can use some .img and try to make it alive again.

    As soon as i get mine fixed, i will help matrixgd and staceymonique to bring their tablets up and running.

    Here are some photos of inside the tablet, hope this help.

    i got it to work and its alive!

    The only down side (yet) is that i couldnt set nand to work fully as 4gb in fwdn, it looks like it only recognizes 2gb, but other than that, its working with android 2.3.3 and all peripherals (wlan,bt,camera,audio,sdcard,etc.)

    If anyone is interested in fixing this particulary model (or EM102 A110 that is almost identical), please PM me and i will definitely help.
