Thanks, just what i wanted! Can you post the MD5? I have aa5e49eed4e254134ce1ee64354be40

edit: nevermind

edit 2: flash went perfect, rom is very fast. Everything is working great, just like 3.1 out of the box with a little root sprinkles on top I like having Dolby back, one of Iconia's strengths.
