Skyfire, yes I had many of the same freezing and other issues with Remix, even trying to wipe and reload Remix using this image here, and still lot of freezing. Since then I have put Android and Windows on it and almost all of the issues are gone -- it works pretty well!
My current issues (which I have submitted tickets for as well as others I think):
1) Sometimes in Android when you push the power button to wake from sleep, it takes about 10 seconds to wake up. You have to just be patient and only press it in one time and do not touch anything else... and just wait. Then the screen will come on and you can swipe to unlock (again after about 10 seconds!). Also, very rarely, it sometimes does not wake up at all. But this has only happened a few times out of hundreds for me.
2) In Android, similar with Remix, with the keyboard attached, the screen seems like it will not go to sleep at first. It will try.. the screen turns black, and then a few seconds later the screen turns on again. Actually, though, it seems like after 1 or 2 cycles of this, it does finally go to sleep. So this is not a huge deal as it does seem to finally go to sleep all the way, but it takes a few cycles it seems before it does this. I haven't paid enough attention to figure out exactly what it might be doing here?
3) In Windows... I also have the HiPen 2 and it does not really work. It seems almost like the digitizer doesn't even exist or there are no drivers and the hardware is not recognized in Windows or something???
The Windows partition has around 5 GB free after first install, but if you do a Windows update that shrinks to around 3 or so.. you can clean some Windows update files and stuff and get it back to 4 GB free, but as you can see it is quickly shrinking.
I wonder and wish there were a way to use only Android instead of Remix. The current flash process seems to force it to be an 8GB partition. I haven't tried but I wonder if you can expand the partition using a Live USB environment like Ubuntu after you install Android and not install Windows?
Also ... Can we possibly get a copy of the BIOS without the OS Selection screen (for dual boot OS)? What if we want to go back to Remix-only or try to have only one operating system? From what I can tell there is no way to disable the OS Selection screen once you flash to the Dual boot BIOS and there is no single boot BIOS made available on this site to download
