Neko, I've run into a bit of a problem with M1 Android and am wondering if you've seen the behaviour yourself.
What I'll do is I'll open a ROM and I'll listen to a song. If I press stop for any reason, I cannot resume playing that song, nor can I play any other song from that ROM or any other ROM until I completely close M1 and reopen it (and wait for its "Initializing..." popup to go away each time).
I like to listen to some of the old chiptunes from my childhood days at the arcade when I'm driving (beats the living crap out of what's on the radio nowadays), but I can't very well close out the app (requires me to enter my task manager since the app has no "close app" button anywhere), and look at the screen to reopen the ROM(s) and select my song while driving.
I'm running on a Samsung Epic 4G (first gen, not the nicer Epic 4G Touch), using Gingerbread 2.3.6 (EL30).
If you have any workarounds for this issue, I'll be happy to try them out.

Feature Request (when/if it ever becomes feasible): When selecting a song, the player would change to a screen similar to how WinAmp Android works and would allow playback controls at the bottom and swiping left/right to switch songs within a ROM. That would make it a lot easier to switch songs without having to look at a really small list display on the screen.
I'm not sure if anybody still has issues with getting this set up, but here's how I did it:
When the app is first installed and asks you to use a long touch
on the directory you wish to install it, you generally want to select the "/sdcard/" directory by holding down your finger on its list entry until M1 begins its initialization.
Once that's done, any ROMs you have on the phone already can be copied or moved into the "/sdcard/m1/roms/" directory using your phone's built in filesystem manager (on my phone it's the My Files app).
Once you have your ROMs in that directory (which is the default for m1) they will be visible to M1. To open a specific ROM, you press your menu key on the phone and select Open, then pick your ROM from the list that appears and you're golden (except for the issue above). Once opened the list of songs will appear on your phone screen.
