    2) Can Ubuntu Linux run on these devices with touch and all the features possible for a tablet.

    3) How do i backup and flash my storage.

    you dont buy nand storage, but microsd card. on the lastest firmware, your internal storage will be 'disk', and your microsd will be 'sdcard'.
    to flash your firmware, just check the firmware thread (XAUMOD). it is on the first page, and you didn't look at it.

    That means you can use a Sd card in you slot from 4gb to 32gb to extend your external memory, you can't change your internal ,sorry but you are confused!

    You kind of can actually. On the inside of these tablets is a 4gb Micro SD Card which you can swap out for 32gb. The Android OS itself is on the NAND which is...300mb or so? I don't remember the number at the moment.


    Oh and opening it is quite easy, too. Just start at the corner with any kind of small straight screwdriver. Pop up one corner and move along until the case is open. You also might want to watch out for the cable connected to the touchscreen while opening it. Once you pop the touchscreen off, you need to unscrew 4 (or even 2-3 to make it easier) small phillips head screws holding the internal screen in place. Once you take that out, you'll see where the Micro SD card is located. Just replace this with your 32gb card and you're done!

    And Then your warranty disappears the moment you break the seal!

    As far as I could tell there is no seal. They wouldn't be able to tell if you opened it or not.

    When you switch it to the off position a menu should come up asking you what you want to do. One of the options should be to power off the device. If this isn't showing up, then you have a defective tablet and you should return it. To test and see if it's defective, move the switch to the off position and then press the reset button. If you're tablet turns off, then it's not defective and something is wrong with the software. If it doesn't, its defective and you should return it to wherever you bought it from. In order to fix the software problem, I suggest you either do a factory reset and see if that will fix it, or flash the XAUMOD Firmware and see if that fixes it. If it doesn't fix it then just return it. I hope this helps!

    hi i have bricked my pad by doing a hard reset, then i opened it and i cleared the cache partition by using linux, now the pad goes to the calibration screen but cannot do anything else, windows wont recognize it as any usb at all, noes not even make a sound its like i didnt even plug the usb wire, so my petition is does anyone have an image of all the partitions on the internal 4gb micro sd card maybe by rebuilding everything on the memory i would be able to fix it, also my pad its supose to be the FR-809 or the 805T but mine is completly black, has 2 speakers and no screws and it wont get top recovery mode on any combination of buttons. i have tried holding the 2 buttons by the power button, and also all 3 buttons and then one of the buttons on top plus the one by the screen and nothing happens, any help would be appreciated. thanks.

    Hello,
    Is it actually possible to replace the internal microSD card with one of a larger capacity say 8GB or 16GB?
    Is there a procedure to do this?

    Regards,
    Andrew
