Need Help Here! (M7206 Tablet)
So recently, I have bought this "unknown tablet" with no specific brand name printed on neither its device nor the box it came with. It is running on Android 4.0.3 ICS, but it is extremely slow and you will get frustrated after a period using it. Here's the information about this device:
System Updates : build20120510
Model Number : m7206
Android version : 4.0.3
Baseband version : Unknown
Kernel Version : 220.127.116.11-infoTM petter@ICServer #1
Build Number : IML74K
$busybox cat /proc/cmdline
console=ttySAC3, 115200 bootdelay=15mtdparts=imapx200:mmcblk2p7(randisk), mmcblk2p8(kernel), mmcblk2p2(system), mmcblk2p3(userdata), mmcblk2p5(cache), mmcblk2p1(Local-disk), mmcblk2p6(misc) sysdisk=132 memory_capacity=244M systempartlength=0 bmagic=0xeeaa0702 hwver=0.5.1.6
This is a rooted tablet. I don't know whether it is actually an infoTMIC based tablet, but with the model number stated there "M7206", I guess I might be in the correct place.
Here is why I need help! This device isn't has a good performance running with ICS. It often jumps out of ANY apps that I entered and goes back to the home screen itself. Hence, is there a possible way to flash it back to Android 2.3.3? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in Advance!

When the Superuser:allow shows up pick ALLOW...

If that still doesnt work consider installing busybox... gives access to needed functions!
While the kernel (the linux base of ANDROID) is pretty 'generic', it also has specific additions for whichever device it is intended to run on... and even tho some are VERY generic, the setup of buttons (for example) is one example of things that can be changed to suit the device... some 'VOL -' and 'HOME' buttons are switched, for example.
I suggest googling the m7206 and see if you can find a reference to firmware for it... you might get lucky!
First off, thank you!

Hence, as you advised, I downloaded busybox installer and installed busybox, not the latest one as it is not supported, but version 1.19
BUT the same result came up again: cat: can't open /proc/mtd: No such file or directory. So frustrating......
About the second statement, I totally agree with you because I have seen THOUSANDS of tablets using the SAME HARDWARE but totally different functioning system, in the web when I search for suitable Android 2.x firmware for this device. This issue brought to the problem as you stated in 3rd line... I have searched the web for like, yeah, THOUSAND times but all in vain..., hence i hope experts like you guys can help me to cope this thing up.
For info, i bought this tablet about April or May. I had a hard time waiting for it to deliver to my house (since I bought this from a China web store) because on the web it clearly stated there it is AllWinner A10 based powered tablet and with all the high-end hardware in it, promised to have the best of functioning in all aspects. The description are interesting but the truth is excruciating. The device is like totally slow compared to other AllWinner based tablet. I even requested for a factory firmware from the re-seller but what this jerk said that my tablet might got infected by VIRUS! First reaction, like any other will do as well, WHAT THE HECK? I have never heard of a tablet might get virus in such a short period of time. After a while, I went to the page where I order this tablet again and checked for the description for more info to search for the new firmware, what I saw doesn't familiar with me and the description about the CPU chipset changed from AllWinner A10 to Infotmic V10... Web store owners are capable in cheating, don't they.....
By the way, thank you once again!

Okay... lets back up to some basics...
Do you have a camera on your pad? If so, hopefully you have screen capture?
Go to SETTINGS/About Device and capture the screen there.
Go back to terminal and
cat /system/build.prop > ('a filename' on your internal 'local-disk'...)
cat /ssytem/build.prop > /sdcard/build.data
(The idea is to get a copy of it that we can look at/work/play with)
If you have an external TF card in it, it will (likely) show up as /sdcard/sdcard1... you could put it there.
Try to get those and let's see what's actually there!
The information that i listed on my first thread are all the sections stated in the Settings/About Device (System updates and all that). My apologize that I can't do a screen capture for you because it doesn't have a button for me to capture it even though it has a webcam (only).
As stated, I type in the input exactly the same: cat /system/build.prop > /sdcard/build.data
The result is nothing... It proceed to another new line: $
Sorry for not fulfilling both of your requests.
you wouldnt see anything... until you looked in /sdcard for the fuile build.data...
My bad on the about device... you DID put it there!
Try doing a cat of /proc/cpuinfo...
THAT should tell you which processor it has in it!
