    yes...there are all the sources...Spica, Behold II, Galaxy...and the interesting thing is that the firmwares of Behold II and Galaxy are very similar...

    in particular I've looked inside the drivers...the Melfas ones in order to understand multitouch capabilities...

    and what it is interesting it is that the Behold II has the same kernel of the Galaxy, but some drivers are improved...if you give a look to the Melfas ones, you could see an improvement of the code and the possibility to update only the touchscreen firmware, like the camera!!


    ...it's all very interesting....:))))

    I downloaded both Update1 (II5) and Update2 (IK1) and diff:ed them. Looks like they made some changes to the keypad drivers. Something regarding "sleep". Maybe they fixed the lock button? The other changes are to wifi drivers.

    No idea exactly what the changes do though :)

    but in the Behold2 sources it seems to be the same driver but "updated"...I believed that also in the IK1 there were this updates :(

    Tried to find the firmware via fus downloader but with no luck. I think we need to wait for the release.
