Aigo MID XP drivers available


Click here to see more


Finally!

Yep, wifi and chipset too..

No screen brightness software... maybe some key combo adjusts it.

Starting testing now... More soon...

UPDATE:

Hmm.. " Please note: the drivers compatible only with the new model, as Agio has made some hardware modifications on the device. "

Aigo said the only difference would be SSD size on new version.... testing.. testing..

UPDATE 2: looking bad... BIOS works.. wifi doesn't seem to... testing more

UPDATE 3: I just talked with Mobilx: Wifi drivers will not work on current models and it looks like old versions will never get wifi XP drivers.. I should get info about the brightness software tomorrow..

These drivers work only on new model shipping in late April

What does this mean on the data page of the Aigo mid

Please note: the drivers compatible only with the new model, as Agio has made some hardware modifications on the device.

JKK said...

yep for bios... but nothing there really.

Brook said...

no

turnselfoff said...

sounds like a really messed up situation...

sg said...

windows update picks up a wifi driver from what I remember as an optional install. See if that works? I can't test until I get home.

Brook said...

no but installed third party usb WiFi and that works, so almost is still not good enough for the Aigo.

Joao Oliveira said...

Can't wait to find out what the hell did they change on the hardware to make wifi work!!!

Still looking said...

I was going to complain that Mobilx recently added over 80 Euros to their price for this device but it doesn't matter. Still no XP, still no sale.

JKK said...

The one they will be selling next month works fine with xp...

I tested it at CeBit, but it looks us who bought the current version are out of luck with wifi..

you should see the model at umpcfever it has the wifi working and only one item in hardware profile unrecognized. is that the new Aigo?

Brook said...

sorry for posting link, but if you see the screen the wifi is working and only one item remains unrecognized in profile. Can anyone get in touch with them and ask if this is the old or new Aigo?????????

JKK said...

Brook, Joe ( umpcfever ) has the new version..

.. posting links to relevant info is ok here.

Brook said...

thanks, that was the last bit of hope i had for the aigo, Viliv s5 here I come :)

Ishman said...

What allows the midinux to access the wifi via software mode? Seems that a software method can be done for XP as well. Am I incorrect in my logic?

Brook said...

I was just thinking the same thing, In Midlinux by default the wireless is off, until you enable it with application, so it device needs to be first enabled before we can use it, because the error code is that the device could not be turned on. Does anyone have a device that is XP with a software method to enable the Wireless?????????????

Joao Oliveira said...

@Ishman.

The logic is, on Linux you can code drivers they way you want if some idiots put hardware in a device on an non standard way. On windows you can't! :/

Brook said...

did anyone hear about the brightness control that JKK mentioned earlier in the week????

JKK said...

No news about brightness control yet..

Anonymous said...

Am I glad that I did not buy this crap even those dealers kept saying "XP drivers next week"?

Brook said...

ok, anyone found a way to get the screen brightness working, and is that from the lintel or the malefactor of the display???
