    Hi All

    been reading for a while but decided to sign up

    bought the N101 (whatever version is going to arrive) from http://www.aliexpress.com/product-gs/59 ... alers.html

    after reading up loads, I went for this as if it's not for me, swmbo will get it for an ebook reader and basic net browsing

    anyone else purchased from the above?

    they state mine will be up to date model with black back and also will be tested for bleeding pre shipping

    I'm just comparing mine to other wifi devices in the same location. My router is in my sitting room and in the Kithcen any of the laptops, phones, wife's iPad have good to eccellent wifi signal level. However in the same location the N101 only shows 1 bar of signal strentth and regularly loses the connection.

    It would be a good idea to install a custom ROM, you can get 4GB app space if you want. See here: N101 Custom ROMs
    The two best ones available at the moment are VonDroid 2.0 and Finless 1.6.

    thanks for the above info

    one thing that worries me is that mine obviousloy is allowing me to do stuff that others cant (the antutu running, flash working and also the lets golf app) so if i updated with the custome firmware, would it stop these working?

    also i've currently written to eternal as they've supplied a D101 and not a N101 and they are stating this is not possible

    i've got a video of the D101 running antutu, which i'll post later on

    can anyone advise re the changing firmare (as mentioned above) and if I should be doing this

    I've also notice a screen lock issue. Sometimes when the screen locks, when i've left it a while and i wake it up, the touchscreen is non-responsive, I have to hold down the power button to turn it off fully

    I've contacted eternal regarding all these issues incl the fact they said they'd label it as an ebook reader and not a tablet prior to sending

    my main concern is if i can use all the firmware upgrades on a D101
