    Apad FlyTouch Gome 1.6

    Wink Trying to Identify Unit / Gome FlyTouch

    Here is the details + pics of a unit I have recently purchased

    Build: 1.8.2

    Market App:

    The unit performs relatively well, the Market works well, although it's not the "real" Android Market.

    I am a bit of a newbie when it comes to those, is it possible to install the real Android Market app or is it possible to add apps without using the App provided? Sorry for all the questions and thanks in advance.

    Cheers,

    G*

    Is the unit a Gome FlyTouch? The back is plain silver with no writing or anything?

    Euogo TPGA-718 (Flytouch clone)
    Hi chaps. No, this is not the 'real' Gome Flytouch. This is exactly the same unit I have, which I purchased from Euogo.com. It is a Flytouch 'clone', and even uses the same ROM operating system image. Note that the 'speaker grilles' are slightly different to a real Gome. The model number of mine is 'TPGA-718'. Also, the VIA processor is a 350 Mhz, not a 600. It has probably been sold to you with a higher spec processor than it has. It has indeed got 256Mb of RAM, and 2GB of solid state RAM though, which is a bonus.

    The EPAD 256M 1.9_88 0.3k works very very well on this device, here:

    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...ket-flash.html

    Makes it much more responsive, the official Market works properly now, and all hard buttons still work. Give it a go!

    The only way I knew mine was a TPGA-718 was from the Euogo website I purchased it from. Nothing on the box or unit to identify it AT ALL!!! See the following link:

    Smile

    So the procedure to update the firmware is clear:

    I need to download the new firmware, uncompress it and pop the script folder at the root of a blank SD card correct?

    I can kiss the current firmware bye bye right?

    I have downloaded all the power tools, what's the procedure to install those pop them on the SD card and install them from there correct?

    Many thanks in advance for all the help.

    Cheers,

    G*

    Yes - all the decompressed files need to exist in a folder called 'script'. Turn on the device, and it will auto-flash itself. Watch for any errors (there shouldn't be any). Take out SD card. Reboot. Whole process take < 5 mins. And yes, your old ROM/OS will be wiped (including installed apps, email, google accounts etc. Its effectively doing a factory reset.
