I'm wondering this as well, I got one not long ago and its pretty useless at the moment. Athough it is inexpensive, I might just try messing around with it. Its basically a paper weight for me while its working so I dont really care.
I have also got one of these. After lots of Googling I have found that they are made by Shuttle (the maker of the mini PCs) under the base name "P10AN01"
There is another P10AN01 device called the "Advent Vega" sold in the UK. There is quite a lot of information available if you search for Advent Vega.
There are updates etc available at myadventvega, (Google myadventvega - it is a UK site) For hacks Google "Advent-Vega" +Andoid +modaco.
I have not tried any of these as I am an absolute newbie. I would be very interested to hear if this helps.
