FACTORY RESET on ANDROID 1.6 MID
I'd like to know if anyone could help me with a problem with my Apad Android 1.6 MID, ... I forgot the security pattern and now I can not access my devise, is it possible to do a factory reset without accessing the system?? or maybe if I update android 1.6 might help???
Please I need some advise !!!!!

I have the exact same problem. Seems I've put in every possible pattern known to man hoping it was the one I set in it but no luck. Someone sent the following information which I followed to a "T", but there was no effect on my tablet... still locked. If anyone can help me I'd appreciate it. Thanks a million!
Step 1: Download and save the the firmware from
the link below.
Step 2: After you download and save the file
(7inch epad 2.0 Version.rar) use an unzipping
program like WinZip or WinRar to Unzip and open
the compressed file.
Step 3: After you open the file you will see a
folder named "script" copy the "script" folder to
a Micro SD card. But make sure that nothing else
is on the micro SD card.
Step 4: Pick up your tablet but make sure that the
tablet is completely shut-off.
Step 5: Insert the Micro SD Card into the tablet
Step 6: Power on the tablet and your tablet should
recognize the firmware on the micro sd card and it
should boot it automatically.
Step 7: After the tablet is done installing the
firmware, there will be a message that will prompt
you to take the Micro SD Card, at that point take
out the micro sd card and then hit the menu button
on the tablet and then the tablet should boot up
Step 8: Your done!
Thanks for the instructions..
I've followed it, but mine gives the following :
"Prepare update files...
Update filesystem Start.....
Erase File-System partition.....
--> Erase File-System partition Fail! Exit!
Maybe the kernel don't support this NAND Flash"
It's been showing this screen for 90min, with the loading bar on the bottom.
Two questions: How long is this supposed to take, and is that error a problem? If yes, what do I do?
Hi, I just wanted to know if you ever got this resolved? I have had problems with the same error on my pad trying to reflash back to life.

I have the same unit. I understand that you have to use 1.6.xx as this version cannot be upgraded to 2.xx rom. I'm searching for it all over. If you happen to find a 1.6 version please let me know. email@example.com
The link posted above to a google docs page is no longer valid; however, it sounded like it didn't work anyway.

All the necessary information is also posted on there, as well as a downloadable .pdf document of the instructions. I was having the same problem as the OP and this worked for me to solve the problem, but your actual mileage may vary, good luck
Slipknotts fix works
errormessage:--> Erase File-System partition Fail! Exit!Maybe the kernel don`t support this NAND Flash
I have gotten the previous error message with at least ten different firmware flashes for my device. I saw this thread and decided this was the last one I would try before I finally gave up.

was the only thing that worked for my device
