Hello everyone, this is my first tablet. I purchased and received this DroPad A8T? tablet from Dropad - Android 2.3 Tablet with 7 Inch Capacitive Multi-Touch Screen (WiFi, 1.2GHz CPU, Camera, 1080P, External 3G) - US$ 149.99 and while it runs very smoothly, the access to the Marketplace is extremely limited! Down in the LOW hundreds. There is a strange app that was pre-installed called "Updatter" and when opened, prompts to download something called "712b-2.3.18" now, I downloaded this 90mb .img file and when completed, it says to reboot the device. I turned my device off/on but nothing has ever changed. Many .apk files do not even install.. things like Facebook for Android and even YouTube (which is pre-installed) doesn't work. Under the "About device" it states: Updatter Status - Battery, etc. Legal information Model number - MID_Serials Android version - 2.3 Baseband version - Unknown Kernel version - 22.214.171.124 MID Serials #187 Fri Oct 28 03:34:33 EDT 2011 Build number - MID Serials 2.3 GINGERBREAD 20111024.162719 Any help on the "Updatter"/.img file issue and anything else would be very much appreciated! It is a good device but the lack of access to the full Android market renders the tablet almost useless. I have downloaded some .apk files, Facebook and YouTube, but they do not install so that method will not work here. Is this device rooted, does it need to be? It apparently needs to be updated but I dont know what to do with the upgrade.img file or how it works. Please help me here! EDIT: I wanted to add for more info that on the Market through google on a desktop, under every app it shows my devices and for nearly all apps, it displays "Verizon Unknown MID_Serials" for this tablet. Do I need to somehow change this? Please, any all help will be appreciated. UPDATE: ok guys, so I managed to update the tab in some sense. "About Device" now states: About Device Urbetter Updater Status - Battery, etc. Legal Information Model Number - MID_Serials Android Version 2.3 Baseband Version - Unknown Kernal Version - 126.96.36.199 MID Serials #30 Fri Sep 23 04:58:32 EDT 2011 Build number - MID Serials 2.3 GINGERBREAD 20110921.113041 I'm not sure what any of this means, but nothing but the "Updatter" changing to "Urbetter Updater" is different. Still very few apps compatible. Also, the "Urbetter Updater" downloads "712b_gingerbread_2.3.18_20110924.img.rar.partial" I don't know what any of this means so again, any and all help will be very much appreciated! Thanks. UPDATE: okay, so after rooting the device I was able to edit the density. After rebooting and clearing Market data, many more apps are now available! Still wondering if I need to change model number or anything like that so please help if you can! Thanks.
