    I have the plt8031 and it was easy for me. I just unzipped the folder on my computer, used the cable to send it to the sdcard and the system saw the file and asked if I wanted to update. It did the update. Upon reboot it asked if I wanted to delete the image file and I said yes.

    With the lack of support from proscan, I have no idea what was updated. I have already seen the wi-fi issue still exists.
    spyvy thanked this.

    Our units have different processors and apparently that makes a difference.

    I just downloaded the firmware for yours too look at the zip, mainly to see if there is something there I can use. My firmware was just a disc image which the unit recognized as a firmware update. Apparently a disc image is also in that one (m1006 20121106). However being your processor is different than mine I guess you should go with the program to install the firmware from your computer, and it seems this was written for windows.

    Open the file named LiveSuiteEN and that seems to give directions for both the install on the computer an then actual firmware update.

    Proscan PLT 8031
    I just went around and around with this ProScan PLT 8031 firmware upgrade. I finally realized it had to be in the root folder of the SD card. I had previously buried it in a sub-folder. Once I copied it directly to the SD card and not another folder, the system recognized it as noted above. Then it came up with "Recovery system 4.00,,,,finding update package,,,etc." and basically installed itself.

    THE FOLLOWING IS FOR ANDROID 2.2 USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I found it here and it at least gave me a good idea of how to proceed for us newbies. Craig Electronics Inc..
    I hope this helps someone.
    You guys are GREAT. Thanks much.

    Please follow installation procedures as below to updateyour Tablet.

    6. Connect your tablet with USB cord to PC or laptop with SD card inserted inthe tablet. On the tablet you will need to go to” Setting USB mode” and uncheck “host mode”the screen will change saying “(USB storage in use) Turn on USB”.

    7. Go to My Computer, under (Devices with Removable Storage) you will seeyour 2 new removable storage; they will be the tablet’s internal memory and SDcard.

    8. Selectand Right click Removable Disk () or SD card and select format (by formattingthe SD card you will be erasing everything on the SD card) before clickingSTART make sure that Quick Format is unchecked.

    10. Select (turn off USB Storage) fromthe tablet. Plug tablet to wall Charger/adapter. NOTE: Leaving the USB cord; it will help toprovide more power to the table during the firmware upgrade process.


    11. Unmount SD Card by going back tosetting and selecting SD card & device storage from Tablet. Once SD card isUnmount turn OFF tablet and back ON.

    12. When the tablet is ON and in thedesktop page insert the SD card into the tablet and a pop up window withmessage “Firmware Updating” will appear in the screen

    13. Tap the “Install” button on the screen to start.

    14. Wait until the unit finished automatically. Itneeds approximate 5 minutes. Before you remove MicroSD card, go to setting and “Unmount” it so that you can use firmware again ifyou so require.

    15. Now, it is finished.
    NOTE: During firmware update the unit must be plugged into walloutlet charger/adapter; otherwise, firmware will be “corrupted” if losebattery power during updating.

    IMPORTANT: Firmware update/reinstallwill wipe out any software or information installed to unit after initialstartup
