However, there is one very important difference when it comes to software - the USB-detection.
If you update the POV to the newest FW 1.07.4, it will not be detected under Windows XP. FW-updating is still possible via USB (since the device has its own mode for that) but nothing else. Which means you will not be able to put Paul's awesome custom ROMs on your device!
I tried several methods to solve this problem but to no avail. With the original POV-FW this simply will not work.
Thanks to the German Android-Hilfe-Forum (XN04113 pointed it out) and instructions found at Mario's TinyLab (http://blog.fh-kaern...how-to-pimp-it/) I can give you the following advice:
- The original POV-FW does not support normal USB-operation. POV themselves said so. (http://www.android-h...tml#post1038663) (English text in the box.)
- To enable USB-support you have to flash on an Advent Vega FW. (Currently v1.08.)
- Immediately after flashing the device Windows XP will recognize it properly. (Other Windows versions I cannot confirm.)
- Custom ROMs can now be flashed on the device as described in the appropriate threads.
These instructions worked for me without any flaw. Reflashing the device in case of a warranty claim should also be no problem.
Hope this will help some of you!
