Finally the Mk808 got back in stock at DealExtreme and is now shipped to me. Hopefully it will show up in another week or so.
So until then I would be glad to get any advice on what to check and do when I unpack and set this little bugger up.
Should I get upgrades? What keyboards and other accessories can be handy to have from the get go? And so on...

ThankĀ“s in advance!

This all really depends on what application you're looking to get out of this device. A wireless mouse/keyboard is a great start for any usage. If you're looking for an HTPC, then some sort of remote with a qwerty keypad is quite handy. If gaming is your thing, an Xbox controller works great.

As far as upgrades, again, depends on your needs, but I like to have full control over my device without all of the bloatware that comes preloaded. If you're adventurous enough, I would suggest flashing the Finless 1.5 rom ( http://goo.gl/c9ZeV ) which will fix several issues right out of the box. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Solid advice jes..
I'm running Finless's 1.4 rooted rom and love it, will be upgrading to 1.5 soon.
T68 I do recommend the k400 http://astore.amazon.com/minip.....B005DKZTMG. You can find them everywhere but if you would like to support the forum you can get it in our store. There is also a lot of different accessories that are geared for these devices. Good luck!
