Hi Wackym. Congrats and thank you very much for all your efforts. You have given a new life to our tablets.
I am using your roms on an Easypad 970, and I am wondering what can I do with it's little brother (Easypad 1370). They are the same in most aspects - same CPU, same batteries, same RAM, less flash memory, 1 camera only, but most importanly the screen is resistive unfortunately and this is the big problem, even though the resolution is the same.
I tried your ROM and although everything was working and showing fine, unfortunately the touch screen was unusable (perhaps as expected).

I wonder is there a way to modify your rom for a resistive screen, since the manufacturer hasn't released any ICS yet, and I cannot find a similar Chinese OEM to get the ICS from?
Or perhaps does anyone know to which Chinese OEM tablet does this compare to, so I can search for their ICS version?

Thanks

For those looking to increase market apps do a google serch for "ICS and getting those missing market apps". There is an xda thread that refrences the kindel fire. You can follow the same premis of adding the feature names to the u9gt2. I used es file explorer to edit etc/permissions/handheld_core_hardware.xml . Even though the cube does not have all of these features just by adding them, many more apps showed up in my market and I have had no problem with running any of them yet. I also edited my build.prop to reflect that of a Xoom's. Hope this helps.

Damn! I can't edit etc/permissions/handheld_core_hardware.xml with ES file explorer. It says: "Error occurred when trying to save the file".

Could it be because U9GT2 is not rooted?

I use the mod from Troilele: Visture V2 4.0.3 20120208, pre-rooted by Troelie (he says it's pre-rooted) how do I check whether my device is ROOTed or not?

Sislo7 to be able to change these files you have to mount the directory as read/write. In order to do this after you open file explorer go to settings. Look for Root Explorer and make sure that it is selected then make sure that you also have Mount File System selected, it will ask for super user to approve. after you should be able to make the changes and save them. Hope this helps you. You must also do this to be able to edit and save your build.prop file.

Thank you!

The problem lies in kernel. It's set up for capacitive screen. I'm still looking for a fresh kernel source from RockChip... So, for now, I can help you

I could reflash the tablet with the original 1.08 but I get the same result...black screen.

I can hear some noise when I push the "menu" botton, but the screen still completely black....

Any other sugestion? Should I try to open it and check any connector?

Hmm...then it's definitely a hardware problem. If you're a skilled cell phone or tablet repairman or you know one then you could try to fix it...but bear in mind that will void your warranty... So best bet would be to send it back and request a new one.

Thanks Wackym! If I hadn't just reverted back to Android 2.3 (cube v1. 05) I would install it immediately. Hmm, actually I'm tempted to install it anyway. ;)
