    SuperPad III Firmware??

    Hi folks, I received a couple of the new Superpad III's today & one of them was non-responsive upon startup. Just made the buzz sound & nothing else! I've hit the reset button, I've let it charge for a few hours, tried different chargers & still nothing.

    One of two things: It has internal damage..nothing I can do.
    or it just needs the firmware flashed...Problem is I don't know how to extract the firmware from the other tablet I have & I can't find one on the site..

    Some are listed here: FIRMWARE RELEASES: firmware files, benefits and bugs for the Flytouch2 v2 /Superpad 2

    I HOPE there are better ones available! Looks like a lot of bugs & the rom 316 looks like complete garbage.. pretty much the same OS it arrived with..which is what I'll have to use for the non-responsive one, but I was hoping to put something better on there..

    Anything available??

    specs:
    Superpad III
    Android OS 2.2 - 20110316
    model #: disco
    kernel version: 2.6.32.9
    zjd@dtlinuxserver#34
    build # frf85b

    Will any 2.2 firmware work?? Does anyone know the exact firmware I need & the steps to flash it Thanks ftanl

    You could try, as your last resort, to put the superpad I firmware on it?

    Thanks for your reply, but after further inspection the tablet has internal issues..After I boot up and leave it on for a few mins it starts making hissing sounds lol must be a bad battery or something.. I've contacted the seller & the only thing they can do is issue a refund after I send it back.. will cost around $50 for return Shipping.. I was thinking about cutting my losses & opening the sucker up to see what kind of crap is under the hood.

    Another problem I've had with all the SuperPad II & III's is the HDMI out. I get perfect picture & sound for about 10 seconds on my HDTV, but then the sound becomes muffled and choppy. Picture is great! Have you had this experience before? I've tried new hdmi cables & various video files, all produce the same audio problem.. Could it be codex? could it be the movie player app? or is it simply a selling gimmick with a crappy HDMI port?? any help, input would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks ftanl

    Try this for the buzzing ones:
    1) Hold down the 'power' button for 20 seconds. Release. Does it stop buzzing?
    2) Ensure unit is well charged, plug onto power.
    3) Turn on device

    Sounds like you got generic ft2v2, you should be able to use any of the firmware's. Note some of the newer ft2v2's come with a different screen resolution and flashing these firmwares make screen go funny, but there is firmware to fix that also. Make sure you also grab the flash fix!! Flash Player issues RESOLVED - new flash player .apk

    Thanks Chandos... I've already flashed the tablet with firmware & gave it ample time to charge, but it doesn't boot up & makes funny noises after being left on for a few mins.. safe to say it has internal damage.

    The one question I'm really trying to get answered is about the HDMI out on these tablets. Each and every one of the 10.2" tablets I've tried Superpad ii and III & the zt180 each display perfect picture quality, but after about 10 seconds hooked up to the HDTV the Audio becomes choppy & muffled.

    HAS anyone else experienced this HDMI AUDIO problem??

    Thanks for our reply. Been trying to get someone to respond to this for awhile now. Do you know what type of video file it was? Did you use any conversion software that added special codec etc.. to run smoothly?

    I've tried several files I downloaded off the net in AVI & MP4 formats. Each file produced the same audio problem.. Audio was fine for about 10 seconds & then it became choppy & distorted..Maybe some loss through the hdmi cable, maybe I need specific codec.

    Did you use any special video player? Someone suggested Mobo Player..never worked for me, but it does have certain codec available for specific arm based tablets.

    Any additional info would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks

    I have the same exact one, but have not tried the HDMI at all. I have too many other problems to solve first, but maybe it is my lack of knowledge. I read the posts here and have no idea what they are about. I can not get a system update and only get an err 301 message, there are no apps in the marketplace except free ones, and the Wifi will not recognize and hot spots. If anyone has and suggestions for a novice, please feel free to suggest. Like I said, I am not sure what is wrong, and the customer service is lacking from the company. Thank you for anything you suggest.
