I have a 7" VIA WM8650 Froyo 2.2 tablet (256M Ram and 2-point multi-touch panel). It is a awesome tablet because of cheap price @ HKD680

However, it don't come with official android market and It cannot use ad-hoc Wifi connection.

So, I need rooting this machine to get this access. I had tried "Z4root" and "Universal Root" still cannot root this machine!

Pls anyone can help!

Is the multi-touch actually a "TRUE" multi-touch meaning it can be recognized in all games that support multi-touch and not just in the internet and gallery apps?

Also, where did you get this one from?

This machine come with resistive touch screen and "claimed" with 2-point multi-ouch action. Actually, it can only work on the "pinch to zoom" only! When control others multi-touch function, it doesn't work!

I buy it from computer shop in Hong Kong. But you can find it in this:
http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/43...Tablet_Pc.html

My firmware is V.1.2.0, In a chinese forum, I find a new V.1.2.1 version ROM.
http://bbs.51szb.com/thread-20345-1-1.html
However, this ROM only workion specific mother-board (there may have over 3 types of 7" WM8650 PCB board in the market and their Rom(s) are not compatible!

I still needed to check out my machine board version before flash Rom.

Noahheesa, could you pls help me to identify my machine and then, I can make sure that the "Custom Rom" I requested is correct?? Thanks your help.

Try this forum. It describes the different ones. They are all called M009s. Some have Blue LED on bootup and some have Green. Some vibrate, some don't. There has been a 1.2 and a 1.2.2 ROM posted here.
