There's an updated MK808, an MK808b (includes Bluetooth module) and rumours of an MK809.  Mine's all packed away at the moment, so I'd check on the website that Finless Bob posts his updates on (see previous page).

The last thing you want to do is flash a firmware to the wrong model of MK80x 🙁

Several sites to choose from:
a) Word Toolbox Add-In - for any power Word user
b) My old hacking stuff of yore
c) Preserving old photographic slides found at car boots!

Hi Mike,
just a quick thank you for starting this thread and pointing me in the right direction.
I got one of these 808 jobbies for fathers day. I have flashed the latest Finless 1.7c rom (tried a couple of others too but this one is by far the best)
With the latest rom my wifi is great at 65mps, never drops below 50mps, got a lovely logitech keyboard and mouse and today have sorted out a wireless xbox 360 controller.
It's managed to cope with everything I have thrown at it so far app and video wise, although I think Droidmote is a waste of money.
Will hopefully get time to put some emulators on it this weekend  😮

Oh, and my mom wants one now  😀

No problem!  Fantastic little pieces of kit - blows a raspberry to the Pi 🙂

Mine's still packed away as not really unpacked much of my stuff since the house move - much to the annoyance of the other half - but I'll get around to using it.  Mine's still running on v1.6 🙂

So glad that I ditched the pi. Not saying it's a bad thing, just a bit too involved to make it useful.  But it was designed to be that way. However the pi is woefully underpowered in comparison at the price

According to Lightake (where I ordered my one from originally) there's newer models coming out all the time.  With the price lowering of the quad-core chips (at the moment they're being used in the clone S3 phones and the clone Galaxy Tabs), it won't be long before the next batch of MK80x are out with quad core chips and Tegra 3 GPUs.

The MK812 is £5 cheaper *but* only has 8Gb on-board to play with.  The above has twice that amount.

Erm .. once I find it, anyone want an MK808? 🙂
