    running 20110501 here on my "superpad iii". quite stable, no big issues not already documented. Many thanks to Chandos for his maintenance of this board and vast wisdom.

    One issue, I am using the app "Advanced Task Manager" to view/switch/end tasks, I always notice lots of apps starting by themselves, like 'clock', 'movie player', 'marketplace', 'settings' among others. 'gmail' running by itself i can understand because im sure its checking for new mail, but the others? also, multiple programs running on startup, like 'droidssh', 'superuser', maybe a few others. is it necessary that these run? what are they doing? is there a method to manipulate starting programs other than changing settings within the program itself? thanks in advance for any info.

    Hi there Im a noob and have a few questions about upgrading the firmware. I have found that Tim has released his latest upgrade which is Tims Rom 3d and it fixes the following which Ill post after my question, The question is when upgrading the firmware to Tims 3d is it necesarry to upgrade the versions before in order to get some features frhe om his other releases or will the latest 3d rom cover all the other roms fixes as well. I wait in aticipation for a reply as my tablet should be here tomorrow and would like to tweak it. Thanks in advance for any replies.

    - Market 2.2.11 (see tip below)

    - working GPS with google maps & co (see tip below)
    - 3G stick support (see tip below)
    - HDMI output (see tip below)

    O maior problema que tenho é que não vem nativo o português. Queria saber se teria como atualizar o S.O. para ter a opção de por em português

    What size microsd card are you using? someone mentioned earlier that they were using a 16gb card and switching to a 1gb card did the trick. the issue may not necessarily be with the capacity, if you have another microsd card of any kind give it a try.

    You need to use launcher pro or ADW as your home launcher to do this.(launcher pro is already in tim rom, press home button and select it)
    Once you have that, long press on the home screen desktop and select create shortcut. Pick 'activities', Pick 'Settings' , Pick 'Development' (This one is not alphabetical, keep going down the list till you find it)
    Once done, open the shortcut and you will find USB debugging.

    The specs you linked are a Flytouch 2v1 Superpad 1, not a F2v2. It says android 2.1, not 2.2... this firmware is not for that device.

    This is a bug with the market application. Neother factory/timr or TCH roms fix this yet as far as I know, they are waiting on a new version of market to resolve this. A workaround is to ensure no more than 2GB of FREE space on your internal SDcard fixes the issue. Thus fill up your card with videos or whatever until there is only 2GB free.

    Tims ROMS are cumulative, thus 3d contains all the fixes of 3a,b,c. Note, some people including myself experience slow android market with tim 3b,c,d. Tim 3a is fastest for me. He is about to release tim 4.

    The best idea is to uninstall any application thats running in memory that you do not use.
    You need to use a program with root access like 'root explorer' and browse to /system/app on your internal sdcard. Then rename any .apk to .old you do not want to load then reboot your pad.. Take care as some will cause issues if removed, so just do one or 2 at a time and see how your system reacts afterwards.
    Other than that, I believe there are some aqndroid apps that continually monitor your running processes and kill of the unwanted ones, never bothered myself, better to just have running what you want running yes? I have removed gmail, mail, clock, weather app, telephony and a few others with good effect.

    Ensure card is formatted FAT32 and that there are no extra files on the card other than the two firmware* files.

    just installed 0508.
    -seems initially a little snappier
    -market still abysmally slow
