This page needs to be properly filled according to the New Device Howto and the New Device Page guide.

This device was imported and rebranded under the PengPod 1000 name by Peacock Imports, who was secretive about where they had bought them.

Although it comes in the same case as Inet_1, the board differs slightly.


Apart from the names and symbols explaining the buttons, the back of the device is blank. It came with a small sticker proclaiming "N500c", indicating that it _may_ have been a Wayestar device.

The following is silkscreened on the underside of the PCB:

1252.040 (or some other numbers) 

In android, under Settings->About Tablet, you will find:

  • Model Number: BC1077
  • Kernel Version: 3.0.8+ jackie@ubuntu #50 Mon Nov5 09:51:29 CST 2012
  • Build Number: crane_bc1077-eng 4.0.4 IMM76D 20121108 test-keys

Sunxi support

Current status

pengpod1000 can be found in boards.cfg, but not much else. However, it is (as mentioned earlier) very similiar to the Point of View Protab 2 XXL


Add MANUFACTURER DEVICE specific sunxi ROM images here. E.g. a livesuit image or some other linux image which uses linux-sunxi code. Do not put non-sunxi images here, they should live under See also. If no sunxi based images are available, this section can be left blank.



Manual build

  • For building U-Boot, use the MANUFACTURER_DEVICE target.
  • The .fex file can (not yet) be found in sunxi-boards
  • It can be found at this temporary location

Everything else is the same as the manual build howto.

Tips, Tricks, Caveats

It may need the same changes to fully support FT5X as mentioned on the Inet_1 page.

FEL mode

There is a button between power connector and Mini USB connector which supposedly triggers FEL mode.

Adding a serial port (voids warranty)


Device disassembly

By removing the two screws on the connector side, the device is trivially opened.

Locating the UART

There are some marked UART pads in a corner of the board, near the type-A usb socket, where you'd need to solder on some wires according to our UART howto.

Optional. Add non-sunxi images in this section.
