I havent heard of anyone dropping a custom rom on this, any link?
I have had a look, and it seems that the recovery partition is /dev/block/nandg
A (seemingly) appropriate installation of CWM can be found here -> http://bestandroidtips.com/how-to-install-clockworkmod-recovery-v6-0-on-allwinner-a10.html
Line 61 of the hardware defs in CM9 for Allwinner A10 would seem to agree with the above CWM install scripts -> https://github.com/christiantroy/android_device_907/blob/ics/BoardConfig.mk
Finally, ADB drivers and ADB tool for Allwinner A10 -> http://ployermomo9.wordpress.com/2012/05/06/upgrading-momo9-and-other-allwinner-a10-tablets-7-android-tablets-to-ice-cream-sandwich/
Are you sure that the screen is compatable with this ROM?
Which ROM? I have linked at least 2.
In short, I am not sure about anything, but signs point to a strong possibility that I will be able to get CM9 and CWM working on this tablet.

Item sent to customs 15th aug.
Anyone know what's the next step and turnaround for this?
@howardmarks which customs? If it's Dublin, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the paypal invoice, your An Post tracking ref, and your postal address.
Otherwise, you'll be waiting for them to post a letter to you.
Just got my package today.
Arrived in Ireland on 30July. I got a letter from customs on 31st July asking to declare value.
I emailed according to instructions with paypal receipt.
2 weeks later no reply or package
I called anpost, who put me onto customs who claim no receipt of email.
I told em 60.75EUR value which yielded 19.75EUR charges.. quite alot I thought.
I'm happy with the device.. I have/had 2 issues.
1) Touchscreen didn't work well on first boot, was acting randomly. Reboot fixed it
2) Doesn't seem to connect to WPA networks easily..
Otherwise I'm happy with it.
6euro of that charge was An Post's extra handling fee.
It's in the country,got a text from my friend in NI who I used for delivery to avoid customs,I'll probably have my hands on it next week.
Great thread guys, very informative - very keen on one purely for web browsing but thinking now I may hold out for a 'cheap' 10" tab instead as my eyesight is crap to begin with
Anyone try the xbmc for android pre release?. Does it work?.
