    hi
    my friend has bought one of these for theirs sons xmas present, only to just realize they cant access the android market to install some games and since im the technical person i have been given the job of getting it sorted ready for christmas and wont be recieveing the unit until tomorrow

    here's the ebay listing and the specs, i cant seem to find what model it is or what speed the processor is how can i identify it

    what id like to know is what can be done to this so its more usable ie android market, and let it run English apps, decent games, youtube, facebook etc (just going by what i have read on the posts at this stage until i can actually have a play myself)

    will flashing it with another version of android fix it? can it run honeycomb or ICS? how do i know what version it can run and of what?
    or will rooting it fix it?

    i have read a heap of posts about these chinese units
    on the internet and found this
    https://groups.google.com/a/googleproductforums.com/forum/#!topic/android-market/qvaigxgOlV4
    whats the env_uboot and where can i fond the one i need?


    i have never touched an android device so dont know what to do but have hacked my phone, iphones wii's etc so know what im doing just dont know the tools or process with android

    thanks in advance hopefully i can get this working before xmas

    so what do i need to do to flash or root this device? just a basic run down on where i can find the info or what i need thanks

    As it's very hard to know what model it is I doubt you will be able to find a ROM or that there will be any developer support. However, there is an alternative app store that should be more than adequate

    To install just follow these instructions

    In the browsers address bar go to appslib.com/latest
    Pull down the notification bar when the file has finished downloading
    Press on appslib_2.apk or similar
    Press OK if any warning messages appear, follow instructions
    And done

    Appslib is a store that is used by tablet manufacturers as they are disallowed access to Android Market.

    Note - Some apps might not work

    so if i want to flash it to a different version i need to find a rom that someone else has made that suits this model?
    and im guessing the rom is the OS that can be either honeycomb or ICS etc?

    thanks ill give the app thing a go and see if i can find out anything more about this device when i see it

    No problem

    It could be 2.2, 2.3 but I doubt there is any Honeycomb ones because the source code isn't open. ICS has just come out.

    Yes, you need to find a ROM specifically for that model.

    thanks
    i have some more info
    model number: generic
    Firmware version: 1.6
    build number: WMT2.1.2 105
    kernel version: 2.69-00236-g4f8dbbb-dirty

    can that help me to find the correct type to get a rom?
    should i be installing a custom recovery ?

    appslib.com/latest doesnt work its not compatible with this device


    ok so progress i have installed honeybee v2
    http://androidtabletzone.the-talk.net/t2447-honeybee-v20-is-here
    but the android market wont work i get "no matching content"...?
    what do i do?

    ok so i tried updating the honeybee version to V9
    http://androidtabletzone.the-talk.net/t2669-rom-honeycomb-v9-for-flytouch-1-build-wmt212-32211
    and it installs but its a bit slower than the honeybee version 2 but still having the android market problem

    anyone got any ideas?

    Settings--> Applications--> Manage applications-->Market.
    In that clear the "cache" and "Clear the Data". Then it might work.

    To speed it up just disable any live wallpapers and remove unwanted apps (as that will stop them running in the background).
    This tablet doesn't have the fastest CPU so it won't have lightning speed. Try to resolve market first and then I can help you root the tab with the tap of a button. Then you can overclock (if the tablet supports it). I think the ROM you have put on this tablet is fine and it's always better to have the latest version. Does everything seem to be stable and okay?

    i have already tried that
    but clear data isnt available i have done clear cache tho and reboot n still nothing

    i also cant uninstall any apps that came with the rom..?
    i tried going through the uninstaller app thats on there and also holding it down and clicking uninstall

    also i cant install any apk apps i have downloaded except for the rom tester app so i dont know if there the wrong ones or what...

    is there an android market apk file i can use to try and install it again?

    and where can i download some games to put on here so at least it will have some for the kids if i cant fix the market

    GetJar is another alternative marketplace. Try that. Visit getjar.com on you're tablet. Click on an app and it will ask you to download the App. If it asks you what device just say Archos 70 G8.

    Maybe it isn't suitable for the Tablet, how did you find the ROM?
