@Fbox: no deal yet... I think I will need more help. AFAIK the only stuff missing in order to get a perfect copy of your firmware is a "modules" folder found in the root folder and the kernel (zImage from firwware installing files. You should be able to extract the kernel using a dd command as root. I will take a look into it soon and give you directions ASAP. Thanks once more!

OK, let's do it... Open Terminal Emulator or use "adb shell" in your computer while connected to the tablet in Debug mode via USB, then use this commands:

Code:
su <--- Authorize Superuser
cat /proc/mtd
cat /dev/mtd/mtd2 > /sdcard/kernel.img

After the second command, you should see some lines of text and one should look like this:
Code:
mtd2: 00600000 00020000 "kernel"

This means mtd2 should contain kernel code. A file called "kernel.img" should be available in your /sdcard partition. Please host the file online so I can download a create a recovery firmware for 1025_v4. After it gets tested and approved (lcd, digitizer, camera and wifi works), I will post a thread with instructions and a download link. Thanks once more!

Hi lfom!
When I entered the third line I got an error sayng:

"cat: can´t open '/proc/mtd/mtd2' : Not a directory "

And the a 0 byte file named kernel.img is created. There´s something wrong?

Now it´s ok...

Hopefully, WiFi will work now. I posted a CFW for testing with some improvements about stock, like root and Market enabled. If everything works fine, I will post it here. Thanks again!
