Sorry off topic, anyone know where can I get the battery replacement for this tablet? What is the model of the battery. I left the battery unused for 3 months with almost 0 percent charged, and the battery has problem now.

Hi there, just registred to reply there.
Base system works well with some tweaks:
1) Install non-free firmwares for realtek wifi, for intel sound.
2) Add pwm-lpss and pwm-lpss-platform modules to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules to allow video driver change brightness.
3) Add step to rotate screen on X server startup
4) Install binary file to allow bluetooth work
5) I recompiled kernel, latest for now: 5.10 to enable silead touch screen, to enable AXP2xx chip to read battery state. Base kernel works well but touch screen and battery not shown.
Overall system with xfce4 is faster than win10 besides hardware accelleration in chrome: youtube videos will eat a lot of CPU.
