Anyway, before selling it, I will try to make it work with a gamepad. I use the custom rom provided by gizchina. Is there someone that uses a controller and can confirm that it works flawlessly? I have tried 3 different controllers (two Saiteks and one Sweex) and none of them works perfectly, all three present some problems. Thanks!
@IainAF. I missed your posts when you posted them, I just read them. I am glad that everything worked out well for you. The tablet is truly great, given its price. After installing the custom ROM, rooting and installing a good launcher (I would suggest Nova launcher), the tablet is a first grade device in every aspect. If only it had a gysoscope!..

Say, how do you know, that there's no gyroscope? Description shows that there is. You can check with Z-DeviceTest

If you look here in the "sensors" sections, you'll see that the only sensor mentioned is the G sensor. Moreover, P98 air does not have GPS, so that probably means that there's no gyroscope. Finally, I've used a program like the one you mentioned and no gyroscope was found. Are you sure that it has a gyroscope?
Nevertheless, gameplay does not suffer, at least at the games I play. Real Racing 3 and all of the flight simulators I played work fine.

Me neither. But at the lowest part, at the "other functions" there's something called "G+G smooth touchscreen". I am not sure that this refers to a gyroscope. The bottom line for me is that gameplay is not affected to the games my children play and that's enough for me

Would you mind, plz, to download the rom and turbo patch from http://www.gizchina.de/downloads/cat...0-p98-air.html and reupload it to some other mirror? By some reason, it doesn't let me download, though I'm registered

I couldn't download it either, because I was using firefox. Try with Explorer and if the problem persists, I'll try to upload it for you.
