    I have a brand new flytouch 3 tablet that had android 2.2 froyo running on it. After toying with it for a few days, it will no longer boot. I rooted it and had been attempting to fix the market (as it would only display free apps). From reading forums on the subject I discovered the relationship between the android market and my devices build fingerprint, and, as instructed by said forums, I swapped my fingerprint for another. When that one didn't work upon rebooting the tablet a few times I tried another fingerprint. This time, however, when I tried to reboot, it wouldn't load past the pulsing ANDROID logo.

    So thus far I have taken apart the device and accessed the internal SD card, hoping that I can simply format it and reinstall the ROM or OS (I've heard both terms and am not sure if a ROM is the same as and operating system).

    Another Idea is to somehow add a recovery image to the SD card so I can boot in recovery mode. I did try to boot in recovery before taking it apart but to no avail.

    Any help will be immensely appreciated, as this was purchased as a b-day gift for my fiance, and I haven't yet told her that in a matter of days I managed to break it (and I don't plan on telling her if I can fix it before she finds out:p).

    Well i put a rom I found on some forum onto an sd card I had and traded that card with the internal one that came with the tablet, but the tablet got worse; it wouldn't even boot to the android logo. I tried booting with the origional internal card in place and put my downloaded rom into the external drive, but only booted to the android logo again. Well I am at a loss. I suppose I will try another rom. I am not sure if any will work...

    found this forum discussion and am hopeful that they are right.

    it says you can format the drive and install a rom via the external drive. will this work though if i can't boot properly or even in recovery mode?
