HELP NEEDED: Need to Identify My MID; Reseller refuses to tell or give FW
It looks identical to a Bmorn V11, Aldi Minitab, Skytex Alpha 2, goclever a73
(I have tried all of these FW, but none are working for the digitizer, some are better in allowing some response, others no response at all.
Story is that I thought that the seller was reputable; they did ship my order and I had never looked into or had experience in ordering MID's and didn't realize the nightmare I was going to get into; by not having a brand or manufacture that you can locate and having access to firmware. I will NEVER buy from them again and warn anyone from doing so.
The MID works perfectly except it was a HORRIBLE BUILD, the digitizer did not have double sided tape all the way around (sloppy), there was screws missing, there was masking tape inside the MID.
I used proper polyimide electrical tape; secured and put back together; I then located an updated V11 firmware and the firmware ran and installed perfectly BUT digitizer did not respond except the power and vol buttons did work fine; mapping on the screen was off badly (all the way to the right edge), tried 4 versions of FW for V11 and none allowed it to return to normal.
I then found ICS for the Aldi Minitab and again, install went perfect, ran, booted, etc. all perfectly except digitizer did NOT.
Both of these situations the only fault was non responsive or barely responsive digitizer and the mouse did not respond when plugged in to the mini usb port.
Here are the specs on the original FW:
Android Version: 2.3.4
Kernel: 2.6.36-android mhc@Ingen-cross #4
Build Number: crane_evb_v13-eng 2.3.4 GRJ22 eng.mhc.20111202.113113 test-keys
Same basic specs as mentioned above models and same casing;
A10 1Ghz + Mali400, 512MB DDR3, 4GB NAND, 7" TFT LCD 800x480 5 Point Capacitive, WIFI b/g/n
I really need to have assistance in locating the FW because the seller WILL NOT help and WILL NOT disclose what supplier and or manufacture this MID is from (I have called Hong Kong and China offices, spoke to them and they are nice but refuse and make up excuses as to why they cannot get original FW and upload to their site)
I do have an identical MID (I ordered two) and don't know anything about how or where or if possible to get the driver, etc. So, I have a working MID and the Mystery MID..
As far as I can see is having the need to calibrate the MID; I have searched on how to calibrate via adb shell but I have not found anything really that is helping.
Any help appreciated.

Wow, by those videos it could be as you say one of many different brands, I suspect its OEM China, which does not mean Original Equipment Manufacturer, but Other Equipment Manufacturer, so basically an unbranded knock-off. The only help I can give you is that you go to other forums and put the build in the search Build Number: crane_evb_v13-eng 2.3.4 GRJ22 eng.mhc.20111202.113113 test-keys, in Google it did not come up, but you might luck out in slatedroid for example.Currently using Ramos W30 and Ainol Novo 9 Spark (Retina screen)
Some that I have owned/used/tested Bmorn v99, Ainol Novo Basic, Ainol Novo Advanced, Ainol Novo Hero, Ramos w30, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, uHost 1A, MK808, Samsung Galaxy Note. http://mcandroidexpert.wordpress.com

I have and it brings up nothing. This is crazy. Such a common HW configuration, etc. and even all the way to the digitizer controller is common too; I guess what I will need is to know how to calibrate the digitizer or how that works on Android, I am no developer or programmer so I don't know enough to even be dangerous.
Thank you for your reply and I will hope that more posts come in.

Who is it from?
Sounds like a tablet I'm looking at sourcing. Who was the supplier, so I know who to avoid?
