    ----------------------------------------------------
    Choose the firmware that fixes the issues that most annoy you!

    REMEMBER: Back up your device before doing any firmware updates!
    Ensure it is a Flytouch2 v2 / Superpad II that you actually have: Most of us have pad Model: Disco. These firmwares DO NOT WORK with Model: SAWEE10 OR P041 (Commonly referred to as jpad and usually comes in a Superpad III Box) There is a totally different firmware set and method for updating the SAWEE clones. Please read this thread:
    Fake Flytouch 3 Guide: Superpad III, Jpad Sawee10 Beware - Android Forums

    HOW TO INSTALL: For questions and instructions on how to install firmware updates, please refer to these threads:

    Warning about firmware: Avoid flashing 'bootloader-discovery' to your device

    Market
    If you're still missing apps in Market do the following:

    - Connect at least once with Market & your account.
    - Then go to settings => Applications => Manage Applications => All
    - find Google Services Framework from the app list
    - click on clear data + OK, then force stop

    Reboot.
    wait about 1 minute after you're back in.
    Start Market again. (if it crashes, wait a bit and try again, it should go through [​IMG] )

    Then you should see more apps after that, like google maps, Skype & such.. [​IMG]

    GPS
    If your gps is stuck in Shangai or not updating,
    you need to reset the agps data with the gps status software
    in the menu => tool => Manage A-GPS state
    do reset + download

    Plug in your gps antenna, and let it run until you see it gets as many fix as it can,
    wait even more until you see the latitude and longitude changing. (it should reset when it grabs 3-4+ fixes)
    At that point you can run google maps and it should now have your correct location [​IMG]

    I have yet to try this. It is sourced from the apad tv forums and was released in last 24 hours. A few users there have tried it and noted speaker output is still at low levels, and performance seems maybe a bit better. There is no official word on the fixes and or issues of this firmware as yet, but I will keep it updated here when I find anything out.

    Words from the admin who posted the ROM: "It's currently under going testing, but I thought some users may want to test it out before it is approved"

    If anyone fancies trying it out, please post back your experience.
    Thanks

    Thanks for the feedback gundamboyx, I have asked other users for feedback on their android version also to confirm. I have some more feedback from another user, can you confirm the below?:
    "I've tested the new firmware, it has a good video player (CC Player) but regarding to google account syncronization, it only syncs Picasa fotos and Gmail, callendar is not synced, i think it would be easy to implement that in the final release.
    It also lacks the Develepment submenu in applications, the Update application still throws an error code.
    I noticed an slight improvment in speed and touch screen response."

    Connecting to adhoc wifi network

    - Turn Off your wifi in the Settings => Wireless & networks
    - Wait that it's Off
    - Start the GScript Lite application
    - click on "Ad-Hoc support drivers or original drivers..."
    - Turn your wifi back on.
    It will switch to the adhoc capable network.

    Same procedure to switch back to the original driver.

    If it doesn't seem to work, you might need a reboot.
    Better not do the switch while you're using wifi too
    Make sure to turn wifi off first.

    3G / Telephony apps
    The apps are deactivated by default in this rom, as to avoid unnecessary battery draining.
    But there is a script that allows you to activate them back with one click.
    - Start the GScript application
    - click on "3G Telephony apps On-Off"
    You should now be able to go to the Mobile network settings and it should be fine.
    If it doesn't seem to work, reboot

    It has been reported to work with the 3G USB stick E1750 so far.

    Titanium backup
    Enable USB debugging to ensure it works properly.

    Shoutcast streaming
    Android 2.2 doesn't support aac streaming, so with the default apps you won't be able to play the streams.
    But there is currently a way around it, install the application 'TuneIn' from the market, and you'll be able to play all your streams with that app

    How to Manually install "Google Sync Calendar and Contacts"

    GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk
    GoogleCalendarSyncAdapter.apk

    http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.ph...Latest_Version

    Find the download link at the very bottom right with Google App version "CyanogenMod 6" "HDPI version". Download the file. Unzip and find these two files.

    Download these two app to the /local folder of the FT3

    Open Mypad application.

    Browse to the files and double click them and allow to install.

    You must remove your sdcard when you install angry birds (And any other app that does not install properly). This will fix your issue.
