I just figured out to get into recovery mode on this thing. It is different than the other method posted. I think there are at least 2 sets of hardware used with these tablets.
Hold the tablet so you can:
Press on and hold the touchscreen, then press the power and menu buttons at the same time.
It then says if you want to recover press the required buttons. I pressed power, and menu again and it restored.
I have been able to repeat it over and over..
The other method found by Bigwooly goes like this:
"to restore to default rom (recovery mode)
with device off
push power turn on as normal
Once you see the infotmic logo press and hold power and menu
When you see white text On the screen release power and menu
You will see a message the says something along the lines of "to boot in recovery press the require keys"
Press power and menu again and it will reflash the most recent manufacturer update you downloaded."

Keep getting Sylvania splash screen
Just picked up one of these used to try out and so far very annoyed. Keeps hanging on me and every time I shut it down and restart I have to recalibrate and reset all my settings. I also have ZERO empty internal ram available, even though there is nothing but the few stock apps installed. Thought I would try to do a reset to see if it helped, but I keep trying the "3 finger method" only to have to sit through the looonng Sylvania boot screen every time. Any idea what I could be doing wrong? I tried both while the unit was off and on, holding both menu and power down while pressing the screen. I've tried letting go as soon as I see the InfoTMIC screen, as well as held them through until the boot logo. I've probably tried at least 10 times. Any help would be appreciated.
Recover from zero internal memory
I've had that problem where you have zero internal memory even though you don't have any apps. The solution is to do a factory reset but you would then have to reinstall your apps and stuff again. The tablet does remain rooted though.
I think it's in Settings -> Privacy -> Factory Reset
well ill been doing this but still no internal memory, i can install apps thought but icant access to my external sd card or the internal one...
