    I have a Android MID 7 inch tablet. Not sure what company made it although i know it was made in china. it says its model number is generic, firmware versions 1.6 Kernel version 2.6.29-00236-g4f8dbbb-dirty and build number WMT2.0.1_88.

    I want to know if there is a way to upgrade it's firmware to 2.1 or 2.2. It doesn't connect through usb but i've seen a website with a download for version 1.7 and you put it on the Micro SD card. There is also no automatic upgrade and nothing to click on in the about device section of the settings.

    Thanks for any help :)

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    Keep in mind three basic facts about your tablet.
    1. It is one of the group of low power/low cost processor groups. It uses the VIA8505 WMT processor Chipset. These are known as not being powerhouse devices. But are fine as e-readers or simple web browsers
    2. There is a difference between Firmware and Android Version. You mixed them in your post. Android for Tablets versions are (Right Now)
    1.5-Cupcake
    1.6-Donut
    2.0.1/2.1 - Eclair
    2.2 - Froyo
    You cannot upgrade to 1.7 as it does not exist. There is a stable firmware for this chipset called 1.7.4 but you have a newer version with your 2.0.1_88 The Android base is sometimes called "firmware version" when looking at system info. They mean ANDROID Version base on the firmware.
    3. Search TipStir's posts. He is the authority on the low power processor/firmwares. Research under flytouch, VIA, EKen and similar. You will want to not plan any firmware update until you find a compatible firmware and understand the process. Do not just do it. That is how to turn your tablet into an electronic Brick

    I tried changing my Apad's firmware. I have it updated to 2.0.1_88 but then the screen doesn't react while being touched.

    I have a MID 1.6. when my daughter activated the pattern lock by accident and the tablet could not be unlocked, I tried to upgrade the Android firmware and bricked it. Is there any way to get firmware that will work??

    7" Touch Screen Android 2.2 Quadband GSM Tablet PC Cellphone
    I bought an MID 7" Touch Screen Android 2.2 Tablet GSM PC phone, WM8650 300MHz processor, build 1.5.7, and in my excitement, I connected a. 500gb external USB hard disk to it and the tablet frooze and then went of. Since then, each time I turn it on, the Android Robot appears and keeps dancing perpertually. After going through some online forums, I downloaded and installed 2 different firmwares and each one of them show on half of my screen. How do I get the original firmware or does anyone know what I can do to make it work again? Thanks in advance

    I have been seeing these Eken MB702 a lot lately on ebay for less then $15 used $100 new. all used ones need firmware flashed, they wont boot up. Does your boot up? I thought about buying one fix it up an resell it, but the new cost is to low, wont be able to make anything on tablet.

    thanks for the reply, well i always buy my tablets non working just for the challange fixing them. yes i got a few of this tablet. One works great now. the others need to be flashed so i was looking for the correct firmware. i think i found it earlier tonight but have not had much time to work on them.
    In the past several weeks i have fixed, 19 tablets, and several to go. Many were just loose connections, or bad firmware.
