Thanks - this is certainly useful for those in need of a stock ROM when one's custom ROM isn't working or perhaps it will "fix" the WiFi problems ??

From what I've seen thus far, this ROM is Froyo 2.2.2 - (newer than 2.2) just curious to know whether it's compatible & newer hardware with ITE touch screen, regardless of version #'s

For anyone that managed to flash it - are there any new Apps bundled since it should have full access to Google Market ? I downloaded it to my storage drive just in case - for future consideration, even though it doesn't have the language(s) that I need.

The Viewsonic website link is very useful and I spend time surfing and looking around - interesting, that, it seemed the Vpad7 is NOT yet available for retail sales in many countries - but that one can sign up for email alerts once it is out. (and, meanwhile - VS is also going to launch the Vpad7 x )

For all interested...
I received my exchange device back today!
(old one had faulty softkeys and got replaced)

The device no has HWVer 1.06 (previous 1.03)
The device has THIS firmware installed - it IS 2.2.2.

As for ITE compatibility - I think HWVer 1.06 is ITE, since the touchscreen is REAL multitouch and not as before gots distrubed when crossing the axes.

That's GREAT & sure you are very happy and hopefully pleased with it - wonder if they repaired or fixed it (swapped out "bad" parts, or simply exchanged it for a new or refurbished one as sometimes it's fast & easier.)

Looked like yours now has been updated/upgraded with ITE hardware - with newer verision of Froyo loaded. It also meant that several rooted custom ROMs including the overclocking kernel won't work ....

As reference info for others, "hummy15" in another post mentioned that her/his device has ITE as had trouble initially with flashing TJ's custom FM6 ROM, until the workaround - info were

My Phone:
Viewpad 7
Android 2.2.2
Baseband PR3.7_128
Kernel version Apps_2.6.32.9
Build number 4027_3_420


That should be the same stock/factory ROM just "discovered" & shared here.

The difference compared with mine (and it's HWVer 107) with ITE
Baseband PR3.7_125
Build number 5029_3_310
(And, from the FTM screen - SWVer=3.41)

Cheers !!

So far everything works.

Except the compass...
It has the same old bug that it gets decalibrated within a few minutes.

PS: It's a complete new device. Other IMEI, other hardware and so on.
