    Got the 7 inch 2.2 Sylvania last night. Whenever I try to do anything with apps its displaying error 505. I did a search and didn't come up with anything here in the forums. Does anybody know what's going on with this, is the app site down or something? Getting frustrated trying to fix this problem. Especially since Im going out tomorrow morning for a 32 gig micro sd card, it would suck to spend the money and then not be able to do anything on it. Any help or explanation would be so greatly appreciated, Merry Christmas to all. Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this.

    that is a "Assert Error" error or basically there is a glitch in the software.

    #1: IF you are getting this error when trying to open existing apps, try doing an update via the Update screen in the settings area. If that doesnt take care of it, follow the instructions found HERE and do it manually.

    #2: IF you are getting this while trying to download apps, it is a different beast. It is a "Version Not Supported" error. This can be caused by several things and is not necessarily a bad thing. It just may be that the APP Market maybe overloaded (just think of how many MILLIONS of people got new Android tablets today and are trying to download Angry Birds!) and is having issues itself. ***OR*** you may be trying to download an app that is only supported by 2.3 or an "Officially Branded" Google device. Our tablets are running Android, but are NOT Google Branded (thus the reason we do not have Google Market).

    Thanks much for replying. Yea, it's happening when I try to get any apps at all. The tablet is brand new and I dont have any apps to try and load up. I had a feeling that it could be tons of people trying to download stuff like Angry Birds. Your post made me feel better about this little tablet, I think its going to be fun. Thanks again.

    I advise you to get Amazon App market. It is more than enough if you only look for popular apps like angry birds etc.
    It is easy - connect to your wifi, go to the Web browser, go to Amazon.com, find Androip App store, install it***...

    *** the only got'cha can be: make sure to enable "Unknown Source" check-box under Settings -> Manage applications

    Search this forum, if you decide you want to "root" your device, you could put even Google's original market!

    Amazon is a MUCH larger AppStore than SlideMe or AppsLib. They are used to high volume and would have to say "yes".

    I responded to your rooting question in the other thread (the 505 error thread) and you really don't need to root your device. "Rooting" is where you unlock your phone or tablet so that you can "Root" around and change the Android framework (programming). This can be very dangerous if you are not an advanced user.

    I still recommend ES Explorer, it is very functional and gives you more control over looking around and file transfer. It replaces the "MyTab.apk" that comes stock on your tablet. You can get it here . (You want the first version listed).

    FIX for 505 SlideMe error.

    Go HERE and update your SlideMe. Apparently SlideMe updated after some of the units shipped and they have the old (non-compatible) SlideMe on them.

    Plus.... Its the holidays. Everyone is trying to get on the servers....

    Yeah.. I wouldn't bother with the rooting. So much functionality without risking turning the device into a paperweight.
    Now a new ROM with anything above Android 2.2 with a simple to flash methodology would be worth it.
