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.

I've just noticed something interesting. I attempted to play the same test files that I played on PRIMEE and can only run them in software rendering mode, however in PRIMEE they ran with hardware decoding. Perhaps Acer has deliberately disabled mkv due to the lack of AC3 support?

I wonder if it's possible to port the MKV functionality from PRIMEE? I have a lot of MKVs that don't have AC3 sound that would be nice to watch without reencoding into mp4 containers.

It'll be a tough choice between SRS and MKV support.

Edit: Scratch that, all the mp4 files I tested on PRIMEE don't work either
